It's taken a few years, but Intel has finally started sampling to customers its Stratix 10, the industry's first 14-nanometer field programmable array (FPGA). This is something chip designer Altera tapped Intel to do back in 2013, though it hit delays along the way. Nevertheless, when Intel acquired Altera last year for $16.7 billion, it assured clients and investors that Altera's ARM-based chips would still be developed going forward. Well, here we are. Stratix 10 meshes Intel's 14nm tri-gate process technology with a new architecture called HyperFlex. It features an embedded quad-core 64-bit ARM processor (Cortex-A53), 5.5-million logic elements, and second generation High Bandwidth Memory... Read more...
Havok, a middleware software suite best known for its 3D physics engine, is now a Microsoft property. Microsoft purchased the "leading provider of 3D physics" from chipmaker Intel for an undisclosed sum, the company announced in a blog post. Along with its other technologies, Microsoft will, in part, use Havok to build "the most complete cloud service." Intel spent $110 million acquiring Havok back in September 2007. Havok's footprint in the industry is fairly large -- throughout its 15-year history, Havok's technologies have been used by Activision, Electronic Arts, Microsoft, Nintendo, Sony, Ubisoft, and several others to create more than 600 games. Some of the more notable using real-time... Read more...
China has banned several prominent technology brands from its approved purchase list, presumably because it fears that foreign companies are helping the U.S. government with its spying efforts. There are several well-known names on the list, including Apple, Intel, and Cisco, the latter of which is perhaps being hit the hardest by the ban. According to Reuters, Cisco had no less than 60 products on the Central Government Procurement Center's (CGPC) list in 2012, but they've all disappeared by the end of 2014. It's assumed that the ban on these and other products is in reaction to the disclosures of former National Security Agency (NSA) contractor Edward Snowden on the U.S. government's widespread...
