Apple is slowly ditching the infamous butterfly keyboard found in its MacBooks, first with the 16-inch MacBook Pro, recently with the Retina MacBook Air, and soon with a 14-inch MacBook Pro that will replace the current 13-inch model.
The coronavirus pandemic has already left its mark on almost every industry and is testing the limits of the medical systems in countries from Europe, and, given the current rate of newly confirmed cases of infection, the US.
Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) has issued a critical warning for some of the solid-state drives it uses in a number of its enterprise server and storage products. The “flaw” causes the SSDs to brick at exactly 40,000 hours (4 years, 206 days, 16 hours). HPE warns that this is a catastrophic failure that will render all stored data unrecoverable.
There are plenty of aspects to consider when buying a monitor for gaming. This includes resolution, response time, refresh rate, and G-Sync/FreeSync compatibility. Most recently you have to add a new category to that list: display technology. The gaming monitor market was primarily made up of TN panels which can switch fast, but do that at the expense of color accuracy and viewing angles. IPS monitors offer much better color performance, but have historically not been fast enough for gaming monitors. Check our are detailed comparison of the different display technologies if you'd like more details.
When Qualcomm made the peculiar decision to leave out an integrated modem from its Snapdragon 865 mobile platform, many were puzzled to see this coming from the same company that previously claimed power efficiency from a monolithic design, not to mention less space needed inside the phone.
Samsung said EUV technology reduces repetitive steps in multi-patterning and improves patterning accuracy which leads to enhanced performance and higher yields as well as abbreviated development time. According to the company, it is the first to adopt EUV in DRAM production to overcome DRAM scaling challenges.
The petition, which has been signed by over 21,000 people, states: “Phones with Exynos SoC chips [sic] are shown to perform slower, have less battery life, use inferior camera sensors and processing, overheat and throttle faster, amongst other issues.”
Intel’s Rocket Lake-S platform is getting some attention this week thanks to a leaked diagram courtesy of the gang over at VideoCardz.com.
Benchmarks have leaked for another Intel Lakefield SoC. A tweet from InstLatX64 on Saturday revealed Geekbench tests on a Core i5-L15G7. It appears to be a lower-spec version of the Core 15-L16G7 that was spotted in UserBenchmark tests back in January.
The subtle art of giving a pile of sand a brain is, well... complicated. As you'll see in the video, a chip travels "hundreds of miles" along Intel's automated lines as it goes from one tool to another. A processor (or wafer, rather) goes through more than 1,000 steps building up and forming transistors before it even heads off to die packaging.
