Nine months after IBM opened up its Power architecture, it is launching a new line of servers based on the technology and showing off a server built by Tyan that uses the processor too.
For the last few years Intel has had a small line of business manufacturing other companies’ chips — mostly expensive custom chips…
Intel just announced a new system on a chip for the internet of things. This is a big moment for the chip giant, signaling a change in its business model and a new architecture.
Unisys, an IT vendor that makes mainframes, (s uis) said Thursday it will work with Intel (s intc) to release a Xeon-based…
Applied Micro, a chip company with a market cap of $500 million, is set to take on Intel and AMD with the first 64-bit, ARM-based server part that mimics an entire rack on a chip.
MIPS Technologies has sold it’s business to Imagination, the graphics IP company, while selling more than 500 of its remaining patents to a consortium led by ARM Holdings, a onetime rival. The deals are an example of the huge shifts taking place in the semiconductor world.
“The x86 power myth is finally busted. While the X900 doesn’t lead in battery life, it’s competitive with the Galaxy S 2…
If we’re going to create an Internet of things that connects back to a cloud powered by millions of servers, the chip world will have to change to reduce power consumption, shrink in size and embrace new architectures. Here are three startups that showcase these shifts.
As smartphone adoption surpasses traditional computer sales, Intel’s time to crack the mobile market continues to expire. Losing Nokia’s focus on MeeGo hasn’t helped, so at this point, Google’s Android platform may be the chipmaker’s best bet, even though that solution is a long shot too.
Intel isn’t letting ARM, VIA, or a bunch of startups run away with its server business. Today it outlined its plans for the micro server category and said it would create server chips with power consumptions as low as 10 watts per processor by 2012.
ARM and Microsoft today announced a new licensing partnership giving Microsoft more research and development opportunities with chips that run many of today’s consumer electronics devices. What could Microsoft do with such a license? A Windows port for mobiles, servers and gaming are all possible ideas.
The definition of a smartbook varies depending on who you ask, but ABI Research is sure about one thing — most of the smartbook devices sold in 2015 won’t have Intel inside. Here’s why the perfect storm of mobile ARM computing is coming to a head.
Intel will rethink the market for its Larrabee chip, once destined to be a graphics processor. Does its failure to make an x86-based GPU mean that it’s reaching the limits of x86 computing as we take our devices to extremes on the low and high end?
