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.
Simultaneous release of standard and "S" models possible
A week ago, we reported that alleged prototypes of Apple’s upcoming tenth-generation smartphones were released in a YouTube video comparing dimensions, features and aesthetics between three new devices.
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.
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.
More attractive ARMs
Today we said how ARM server maker Cavium had acquired Qlogic and it has announced its first ARM based servers with Gigabyte. But it It looks like Cavium will get some serious competition as Qualcomm plans to release its own 10nm server chips.
Headed for the Galaxy Note 6
Samsung has unveiled its 10-nanometer LPDDR4 6GB mobile DRAM which is probably heading for the much rumoured Galaxy Note 6 in August this year.
830 and 828 in 10nm FinFET
We already expected a Snapdragon 823 which would be a faster version of MSM98996, better known as Snapdragon 820. Now the recent leak indicates that there might be a 828 and 830 coming later this year using the 10nm FinFET process.
Exclusive: Launched by the year's end
There has been a leak about the Snapdragon 823, or a successor to Snapdragon 820, which will be more than just a faster version – our well-placed industry sources have confirmed that Qualcomm plans to use the 10nm process on the new chip late in 2016.
Improved data and power rates
Samsung has started mass production of "the industry's first 10nm, 8-Gb DDR4 DRAM chips," and memory modules based upon them.
