We talk about process nodes a lot at ExtremeTech, but we don’t always drill down into how nodes are defined or how they differ between manufacturers. Let’s fix that.
AMD’s 7nm Ryzen 3000 CPUs may not be able to hit their boost frequencies on every CPU core. This is a departure from previous clocking methods on CPUs, but does it actually represent a problem?
Rumors of Apple moving to ARM are rife again, but there’s at least one significant roadblock standing in the way.
Just under nine years ago, the semiconductor giant reached a deal with Infineon to buy its modem business and expand into that market. Now, rumors suggest Intel may sell the unit to Apple.
Most of the time at ExtremeTech, we celebrate the best of technology. Today, we’re hailing the worst.
It’s possible to build a computer that uses three discrete values for computing rather than just two. South Korean researchers, backed by Samsung, have created such a device and demonstrated it can be built using conventional CMOS manufacturing.
Intel has admitted that its own 10nm shortfall happened as a result of overly aggressive positioning on its part. 7nm, however, is still just two years away according to the company.
Intel has announced a much-expanded version of its Loihi processor, with up to 64 cores and 8M neurons in a single system.
