When it’s not churning out smartphones and giant tablets and uh, giant container ships, Samsung also does healthy business manufacturing microprocessors. It does such a good job, in fact, that chip-making rival Qualcomm will be using Samsung’s foundries for its next big thing.
If you thought Amazon’s own-branded products were a little strange—baby wipes, anyone?—then things just got a little more serious. The retailer has just announced that it’s starting to sell its own ARM-based silicon chips.
This may look like a regular RAM chip, but oh my it packs a punch. This is the latest chunk of RAM to roll off Samsung’s production line—and it squeezes a giddying 128GB into its svelte little frame.
What do you do when you are left with half a chip in your hand after dipping? Admit it, you’ve wondered whether it’s OK to double dip the chip.
Qulacomm has announced its next generation or chip in the form of the Snapdrgaon 820—and it hopes to usher in better signal and longer battery life to the next slew of high-end phones.
Google wants to make a better Android for the future. That means building a smartphone that can handle the technical challenges of augmented reality, virtual reality, and whatever else smartphones will become. And that means tying Android more tightly together with hardware.
Huawei, the Chinese smartphone manufacturer, is slowly becoming a big deal in the west, too—and it’s latest chipset may just provide its competitors with a little cause for concern.
Apple has been found guilty of using a technology, patented by the University of Wisconsin-Madison way back in 1998, in its chips without the proper permission — and it could cost it close $1 billion.
There is no mindless pleasure better than snacking. And there is no better tribute to the crunchy, sweet, and cheesy creations that make it possible than these saliva-inducing photos.
Today is the deadline for US retailers to switch over to a payment technology called EMV. That means you’ll have to start verifying your credit card with a chip, as well as a swipe. We talked to payments industry experts about how EMV works, what’s happening today, and what it means for the average shopper.
Stop. Don’t buy that new Windows laptop or tablet. Don’t pull the trigger unless you’re getting a truly amazing deal. Because today, Intel’s launching its latest processor—Skylake—and you may want one in your next PC.
Moore’s Law states that the number of transistors on an integrated circuit doubles every two years—a phenomenon that Intel has been upholding for decades. But with Intel’s announcement of its 2016 silicon, the law stutters.
IBM has announced that it’s designed a new kind of ultra-dense chip, which squeezes in four times as much computing power as the best silicon currently available.
For years, AMD processors have been a byword for cheap and cheerful — frequently picked in budget gaming guides, but always followed by some justification about how a Core i3 would be a better option if you weren’t so poor. But the latest AMD APU, named Carrizo, might just be the company’s battery-sipping,…
Samsung already makes the most smartphones in the world, but now the South Korean company is pushing to make the most semiconductors. Samsung just started constructing its own version of Silicon Valley, starting with $14 billion semiconductor complex larger than 400 football fields.
A security expert had a computer chip for tracking cows implanted in his hand by an “unlicensed amateur” so he could show how hackers could use tools hidden underneath their skin to hijack devices.
Samsung has long used Qualcomm chips to powers it flagship phones. But now a report from Bloomberg suggests that the company is to drop Qualcomm's Snapdragon chips in its new Galaxy S6 due to overheating issues.
The brains that will power your next laptop are here. Intel's just taken the covers off the high-powered versions of its new Broadwell architecture. That is to say, the 5th generation Intel Core i3-i7 chips that will make your next laptop better than ever.
When you shrink electronics and their transistors with them, they become more error-prone. Usually, that's compensated for by a boost in voltage—but researchers at MIT think we should embrace the mistakes instead.
Pringles varieties are as vast and varied as the stars in the sky: Barbecue. Sour Cream & Onion. Buffalo Ranch. Extreme Blazin' Buffalo Ranch. But one, single Pringles can exists on this Earth with a peculiar sort of flavor dust and no chips at all—the Pringles can that holds the ashes of its inventor, Fredric Baur.
