Intel acquires structured ASIC specialist eASIC
Next step on from FPGAs.
Pays out $100K in bounties.
Tries to 'educate' SoC designers.
AMD pushing the envelope of its x86 licence.
Could replace silicon.
Pushing the Cortex-A76 still further.
Is Intel's first 5GHz CPU just a nod to the past or a decent CPU in its own right?
Still aiming for 2020 volume production.
Brought low by a relationship.
May make Spectre exploitation easier.
Very limited supplies, though.
Rates as a medium severity flaw, though.
Intel has announced a 28-core monolithic CPU, and AMD has upped the ante with a 32-core Threadripper, but who will win?
Spin qubit chip built in a regular fab.
8086 of the former to be given away.
Claims up to 35 percent performance boost.
'Virtual Fences' not enough for Variant 4, sources say.
Previous patches provide some protection.
Is very, very light on technical details.
Precision Boost 2, XFR 2, and Precision Boost Overdrive mean that AMD has made big strides in closing the gap between itself and Intel in lightly-threaded tasks, but do these new boosting algorithms make overclocking redundant?
A mobile-targeted Core i3, oddly.
Does AMD's new cheapest hexa-core Ryzen offer the same incredible value as its predecessor?
