5 Days Ago   It is always quite amusing when retailers pre-announce products before the company actually pushes out a press release. Embargo or not, the retailers want to advertise the fact they will be getting stock and want to sell early – in the gaming industry, people pre-order games, but in the PC industry, you rarely pre-order hardware.

5 Days Ago   Last month the CXL Specification 1.0 was released as a future cache coherent interconnect that uses the PCIe 5.0 physical infrastructure but aimed to provide a breakthrough in utility as well as cache coherency.

6 Days Ago   The pipeline for Arm based server products has a few companies fighting for as much of the market as they can get – the server market is a big pie to consume, and not only do these companies have to tempt customers from x86, but they also have to compete with each other to get customers.

11 Days Ago   One of the key target markets for 5G deployments is ‘the last mile of copper’ from the local cabinet to the home. In order to avoid churning up streets to create fiber to the home, Qualcomm has repeated its intention to replace that last connection with some form of wireless, namely 5G.

11 Days Ago   A large number of inference demonstrations published by the big chip manufacturers revolve around processing large batch sizes of images on trained networks. In reality, when video is being inferenced, it is frame by frame – an effective batch size of one.

The same ‘generation’ of products spans a wide range of processors, from the dense ECC-enabled server all the way through to a big bustling cryptography and a network acceleration chip, when in actual fact each of these products is built on different internal microarchitectures.

18 Days Ago   With the official launch of Intel’s latest generation of Xeon Scalable processors now underway, Intel’s major partners and OEMs are announcing updates to their product lines using the new hardware.

18 Days Ago   Ever since Intel purchased Altera for an enormous amount of money a few years ago (ed: $16.7B), the FPGA portfolio that has been coming out has largely been a product of the pre-Intel days.
