The European Union is looking to send data centers into space in an effort to fight climate change. Thales Alenia Space is spearheading a study called ASCEND, which is part of the EU's "Horizon Europe" initiative. The need for digitalization means that data centers around the world are growing at a never before... Read more...
NVIDIA disclosed its financial results for its third quarter of fiscal 2023, and revealed within its earnings report is a 17 percent year-over-year decline in revenue to $5.93 billion. That's also a 12 percent drop sequentially. Much of that can be attributed to "lower GPU sales for both desktops and laptops," which... Read more...
AMD didn't quite meet its revenue target for its fiscal third quarter of 2022, though it did still manage to post a 29 percent year-over-year gain to $5.6 billion. Half of that ($2.3 billion) was recorded as a profit, which is a gain of 13 percent from the same quarter a year ago. In a statement, AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su... Read more...
Today, KIOXIA has announced a new series of datacenter solid state drives. The new XD7P drives follow the company’s XD6 series in using the EDSFF E1.S formfactor for use in cloud and hyperscale applications. The XD7P series is intended for read-intensive applications with low latency requirements across mixed... Read more...
AMD shared a preliminary accounting of its third quarter revenue, which it now projects to be $5.6 billion. That's a $1.1 billion downward adjustment compared to its previous guidance of $6.7 billion (plus or minus $200 million). AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su attributed the $1.1 billion guidance miss primarily on a... Read more...
This year's Flash Memory Summit event is right around the corner, but storage makers aren't necessarily waiting to unveil their latest bleeding edge offerings. Silicon Motion sure isn't—it has announced its MonTitan (SM8366) solid state drive (SSD) controller to power blazing fast PCI Express 5.0 storage solutions in... Read more...
If you have a need for speed in the data center, Kioxia hopes to satiate your hunger for blazing fast storage with its new CM7 series, which is now shipping to customers. Designed around the PCI Express 5.0 bus and offered in Enterprise and Datacenter Standard Form Factor (EDSFF) E3.S and 2.5-inch form factors, these... Read more...
After unveiling its second generation Habana Gaudi2 AI processor last month with some preliminary performance figures, Intel has followed suit with internally run benchmarks showing its fancy accelerator outpacing NVIDIA's A100 GPU. According to Intel, its results demonstrate clear leadership training performance... Read more...
If you thought AMD would only talk about dollars and cents at its Financial Analyst Day event, think again. Sure, AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su shared plenty of data on TAM growth opportunities and ongoing investments, but it’s all predicated on a wide-ranging portfolio of compute and graphics products for both consumer and...

We tend to think of NVIDIA as a gaming GPU company because of its robust and constantly evolving GeForce lineup, but it's data center business is nearly as big, in terms of revenue. So it should come as no surprise that at Computex 2022, NVIDIA was eager to talk about its Grace CPU Superchip and Grace Hopper Superchip... Read more...
In response to customer demand for high-performance, green data centers, NVIDIA is releasing a liquid cooled version of its A100 Tensor Core PCIe accelerator based on its Ampere GPU architecture. This will be the first in a growing line of GPUs with direct-chip cooling for mainstream servers, which has the potential... Read more...
The first quarter of 2022 is in the books at Intel and it was an overall big one, especially within its data center and Intel Foundry Services (IFS) businesses. The former raked in $6 billion, representing a hefty 22 percent year-over-year gain, while the latter skyrocketed 175 percent from the same quarter a year ago... Read more...
A massive 200TB capacity solid state drive (SSD) sure would give your growing games catalog room to breathe, especially when even patches and game updates are swelling in size. It's probably going to be a minute or two before we see that kind of capacity in the consumer realm, but 200TB SSDs could actually be coming... Read more...
Making fast SSDs for consumers is a good way to build street cred with enthusiasts, but the real money lies in the enterprise sector. This is not lost on Seagate and Phison. Having already worked together on the FireCuda 530 series, which is one of the fastest SSDs on the market, Seagate and Phison announced a long... Read more...
It was only around four and a half months ago when Kioxia debuted its CD7 series of cutting-edge SSDs for data centers, which entered the market as the industry's first PCIe 5.0 models to support the EDSFF E3.S (7.5mm) form factor. Now just a relatively short while later, Kioxia announced it sampling its second... Read more...
NVIDIA is expanding its CPU design efforts in with the introduction of its Grace CPU Superchip, its first discrete data center CPU for high performance computing (HPC) workloads. It's actually two processors linked together in the same package. The chips connect coherently over NVLink-C2C, a new high-speed... Read more...
Following up on its launch of the Ryzen 7 5800X3D in the consumer sector, AMD today unveiled its 3rd Gen EPYC "Milan-X" processors for the data center with similar stacked 3D V-cache enhancements and chip packaging technology. Compared to its non-stacked 3rd Gen EPYC processors, AMD is claiming up to a massive 66... Read more...
You've undoubtedly heard of a microchip, but might not be all that familiar with Microchip, as in the company. It's actually a pretty big one, with billions of dollars in annual revenue and multiple chip fabs in the United States. We'd be just fine if it ever decided to make a bigger splash in the consumer space... Read more...
How many quarters in a row can NVIDIA set record highs in revenues? At least one more, is apparently the answer. After smashing earnings during its fiscal third quarter with a then-record $7.1 billion, NVIDIA ended its fiscal year with another monster quarter, reporting a new high of $7.64 billion, which is a massive...

Don't bother penning an obituary for the mechanical hard disk drive (HDD), the storage medium is not going anywhere. Sure, we're all enamored by incredibly high-speed solid state drives (SSDs), and the push into PCI Express 5.0 territory will see another big jump in performance. But as far as capacity goes, HDDs still... Read more...
NVIDIA posted yet another impressive earnings report, a statement that grossly undersells the lede. Not only did NVIDIA crush its earnings, it recorded the highest quarterly revenue since the company's inception nearly three decades ago. Continued growth in gaming and the data center both contributed heavily to its... Read more...
