No one expected such good yields
We found out one rather interesting story at the Mobile World Congress and it sheds more light on Samsung's decision to use Exynos SoCs for most markets instead of Qualcomm's Snapdragon 810.
For high-end SoCs
One of the hottest things we learned at the Mobile World Congress is that MediaTek is working with AMD on mobile SoC graphics.
MediaTek MT8173 runs prototype tablet
We had a chance to see the world’s first Cortex-A72 CPU core in the quad-core MediaTek 8173 SoC.
Snapdragon 810 in action
We had a chance to run AnTuTu on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810 in the HTC One M9, and we managed to run the latest and greatest 64-bit version of the test.
It can run AMD too
We still hope that there is a chance that we can see the HTC Vive demo in Barcelona at the Mobile World Congress, but we have a slim chance, right next to hell freezing over.
By 2019 says, CFO
AMD definitely plans to win back some market share in the server space with ARM-based chips.
New designs signed and coming
AMD is hoping it can ramp up production of semicustom chips and boost revenue in the long run.
Focus on DirectX 12 instead
It looks like the Mantle API developed by AMD is slowly reaching its end of its useful life.
64-bit, big.LITTLE Cortex-A57 at 2.1GGHz, A53 at 1.5GHz
Samsung had a rather short press conference, not talking that much about what is inside its new flagship Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge phones, at least not in terms of silicon.
Galaxy S6 Edge is €849.95 contract-free
The Samsung Galaxy S6 looks like a great device, the best Galaxy device in a while, and some mobile providers have already priced the S6, along with the curved S6 Edge.
