You would think yesterday's unveiling of Zen 3 would be AMD's biggest news this week, along with a performance tease of its upcoming Radeon RX 6000 series graphics cards. Arguably even bigger, however, is that AMD is reportedly in talks to acquire Xilinx, a maker of FPGA (field programmable gate array) chips, for... Read more...
ARM and TSMC have become quite the duo over the years, combining the latter's cutting-edge process technologies with the former's processor IP. It is a partnership that has been working, hence why the two committed earlier this year to collaborating on a marketable 7nm FinFET chip. The fruits of their efforts have... Read more...
For years, we've heard rumors that Intel was building custom chips for Google or Facebook, but these deals have always been assumed to work with standard hardware. Intel might offer a different product SKU with non-standard core counts, or a specific TDP target, or a particular amount of cache -- but at the end of the... Read more...
