There's no denying that at the moment, Microsoft is in a tough spot. Worse still, it's in a tough spot thanks to more than one product or platform. For now, the company seems to be recovering well enough from the Xbox One debacle from last month, but things are a little more questionable on the Windows side. While things could change in the...

Intel unveiled a number of new data center initiatives this week as part of its broad product strategy to redefine some of its market goals. In the past, Intel's efforts in this area have boiled down to giving customers more of what they wanted, where "more" was defined as higher clock speeds or more processing cores... Read more...
If you thought today's mobile devices were fast, wait until you see what ARM has up its sleeve for next year. Chip makers Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) and GlobalFoundries have both let it be known that they're planning to build 3GHz ARM processor sometime in 2014, which will inevitably end up in...

When news broke earlier this week that Apple had finally inked a deal with TSMC to produce processors with the company beginning in 2014, the first round of chatter was on what this might mean for Samsung. Apple, after all, has been by far Samsung's single largest customer. With that topic out of the way, talk has... Read more...
Bolstered by the recent mad dash by consumers and manufacturers alike towards mobile computing, truly ARM has become too large to ignore. ARM has benefited the most from mobile device sales, proving that it's a capable architecture and a worthy competitor to x86 silicon, so it shouldn't come as a shock that NVIDIA equipped its CUDA 5.5 Release...

We’re still not exactly sure what that Android Batman had to do with ASUS’ “We Transform” teaser campaign and event, but the company did unveil the new ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity running Tegra 4, NVIDIA’s latest and greatest mobile processor. The Transformer Pad Infinity offers a 10.1-inch LED-backlit IPS+... Read more...
While Intel is the king of the PC, competitor ARM is arguably the king of mobile, and the latter is apparently further securing its crown with a new optimized IP solution that’s designed for use in midrange mobile devices. ARM executives went so far as to tell TechHive that their offerings are a generation ahead... Read more...
In sports, it's said that a playoff series doesn't truly begin until a team wins a game on the opponent's home court. If the same philosophy applies to competition in the technology space, then consider it "Game on" in the mobile space, as Intel just won a battle in territory that's traditionally belonged to ARM. More specifically, it's being... Read more...
There’s just something about smartwatches and Kickstarter, isn’t there? The latest smartwatch to whip up crowdsourced funds fast is the Agent Smartwatch, which is designed for fashion as well as function. The device is compatible with Android 2.3 and up, the iPhone 4S and newer, and Windows Phone 8 devices. Inside, it has a dual-processor... Read more...
In an effort to coax developers to begin taking Atom seriously as an Android platform, Intel has just released a complete suite of tools that should help ease them into things - especially since it can be used for ARM development as well. It's called Beacon Mountain, named after the highest peak outside of Beacon, New... Read more...
Just days ago, the IDC reported that smartphone shipments outpaced those of feature phones for the first time, and although feature phones offer an extremely low-cost option for those needing basic mobile communication, it’s clear that more people are hungry for the amenities of smartphones. Fortunately, low-end... Read more...
Well, here's an idea I hadn't considered before. Because most tablets don't offer the ability to plug in an external display, sharing what's on your screen with others usually involves passing the tablet around. Obviously, this isn't too ideal for something like an office meeting, where slides are being shown. But... Read more...
Eager for a bit of microprocessor news from someone other than AMD and Intel? Get ready, because ARM and TSMC are today announcing the first tape-out of an ARM Cortex-A57 processor on FinFET process technology. The Cortex-A57 processor is ARM's highest performing processor, designed to further extend the capabilities... Read more...
Warren East, the current CEO of ARM Holdings, has announced that he'll step down from the CEO position as of July 1. His replacement, ARM's Simon Segars, is an engineer who worked on some of ARM's earlier processors before stepping up to become company president. East's decision to step down is a bit surprising; the... Read more...
One of the coolest aspects of Linux is its ability to support hardware long before other OSes - and even well before consumers can even get their hands on the hardware. Take USB 3.0, for example, which hit the kernel months before the first products hit the market, in September of 2009. And then there's the SSD command TRIM, which was first... Read more...
HP is officially back in the consumer tablet game with the announcement of the HP Slate 7, a 7-inch device running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean that’s designed for tight Google integration. Although the Slate 7 won’t be packing the Tegra 4 SoC that many had hoped, it’s doing alright with a 1.6GHz dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 processor.... Read more...
In the world of consumer technology, shrinkage generally means good things. As process technologies shrink, more and more power (and memory) are being crammed into smaller spaces, which allows for smaller, more mobile gadgets and lifestyles. NVIDIA is certainly helping to lead that charge, today introducing its first... Read more...
Life is good for ARM, the British chip designer that's riding the mobile wave just as fast and furious as it can. In its most recent financial report, ARM posted a pre-tax profit of 80 million pounds (~$126.2 million) on revenue of 164.2 million pounds ($~262.8 million), representing positive growth of 16 percent and 19 percent, respectively....

Microsoft’s Surface Pro appeared on Best Buy’s website today, complete with an Ivy Bridge processor and your choice of 64GB or 128GB of storage. The lower-capacity tablet rings in at $899.99, and the 128GB model is priced at $999.99, so you’re looking at $100 to double the storage. Keep in mind that... Read more...
Nearly two years ago, Facebook launched the Open Compute Project. The initiative was intended to rethink all aspects of data server design, including cooling, racks, and server configuration. The coalition has gathered steam and support from a number of companies; AMD announced its own Open 3.0 Platform at today's OCP... Read more...
A few months ago, we detailed Intel's low-power plans with Haswell and how the company was planning to push mainstream x86 processors into much lower TDPs than it had previously discussed. Santa Clara still intends to deliver Haswell parts at 10W or below, but it's accelerated the delivery of sub-10W parts even... Read more...
