Engineering samples are out already
AMD has revealed a heap of details about its 32-core Zen based product - codenamed Naples - and we have a few things to add.
Attacking the profitable server market
Today, most of the world server and data center market share belongs to Intel, while AMD and the whole ARM server conspiracy, sorry egosystems are making tiny contributions when and if opportunities rise.
Summit ridge and Naples
Fudzilla exclusively wrote about the 32 core Zen codenamed Naples some two months ago in quite detail and people called us crazy. Now it turns out we were right on the money.
SON solves end user troubles
I still remember plugging the first 802.11a wireless card in my laptop and walking around the student’s dorm while I was streaming a movie. It was quite clear back then, more than a decade ago, that Wi-Fi would become ubiquitous.

Leak optimistically suggest Exynos 8895 at 4GHz
Of course, it is that time of the year. Apple, Qualcomm, MediaTek and now Samsung will have 10nm SoCs ready for phones in early 2017. Of course Samsung wants to use its own 10nm SoC in the Galaxy S8 that is expected in late February 2017, but probably with a mix of 10nm Snapdragon too.
Shipping in 2017
MediaTek has revealed that its 10nm processor will be manufactured by TSMC and that it should start shipping in early 2017.
No 3.5-mm audio
We are roughly just a month away from the iPhone 7/iPhone 7 Plus launch. The iPhone 6SE seems like a more appropriate name since we don’t expect any big upgrade from these phones, but then again, maybe we'll be surprised.
First Snapdragon 821 to ship soon
Since early June, we have been closing windows on our summer advent calendar waiting for the Snapdragon 821 based Asus Zenfone 3 Deluxe. Now it seems that the Asus Santa Claws is visting Malaysia first.
