Whenever you hear about a tragic plane crash, you always hear about the mythical black box. What exactly does the black box do and what’s even inside it? What’s Inside took a look by cutting the black box (it’s not actually black) in half and ripping it open to see its guts.
In an impressive display of one-upmanship, UC Davis has created a monster of a chip, called “KiloCore,” which houses 1,000 independent processors. After a bit of math, that comes out to a maximum computation rate of 1.78 trillion instructions per second. Holy shit.
If you need raw power in your desktop PC, Intel’s new CPU will be just the ticket. The new Extreme Edition of its regular Core i7 chip has 10 cores, each running at up to 3.5GHz—but it’ll cost you.
Toda nuestra electrónica se basa en un único y humilde componente: el transistor de efecto campo (Field-Effect Transistor o FET). Uno solo es poco más que un interruptor glorificado, pero si unes millones de ellos tienes los procesadores que dan vida a nuestros dispositivos. Un equipo de investigadores acaba de crear…
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.
Durante años los ingenieros y científicos han estado buscando la forma de fabricar chips tridimensionales, que serían apilados uno sobre el otro para permitir un flujo de datos mucho más acelerado. Hasta ahora no ha sido posible, pero una nueva técnica usará nanomateriales para lograrlo.
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.
Qualcomm presenta su Snapdragon 820, el procesador con el que abandona ARM. El fabricante está dispuesto a dejar atrás la mala fama del Snapdragon 810, cuyas primeras versiones sufrían problemas de calentamiento. En lugar de seguir un diseño de ARM, este nuevo chip de 64 bit tiene una arquitectura propia de Qualcomm…
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.
Después de los problemas de calentamiento de sus Snapdragon 810, Qualcomm necesitaba dar un puñetazo en la mesa para revalidar su dominio en el mercado de procesadores para móviles. Ese puñetazo se llama Snapdragon 820. Te explicamos todas sus novedades.http://es.gizmodo.com/nuevos-test-co…
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.
