A smaller version of existing 16nm technology
According to industry sources, TSMC is planning to introduce a 12 nanometer half-node process to enhance competition with 28nm and lower process nodes that have been adopted over the past few years.
Return of the GPU Jedi
Nvidia, as you have seen, did an amazing job gaining a lot of the GPU high end and mainstream market. Pascal worked out great on the desktop and notebook, but it would be naive to expect that AMD is not going to come back with a vengeance.
There is more to life than pixels
Nvidia just announced its fiscal Q3 2017 (not a typo Ed.) and the company reported record revenue of $2 billion, up 54 percent from a year ago. This is finally proof that Nvidia is more than a GPU outfit, as it finally expanded beyond its core business - gaming and professional graphics.
Up to 10 percent improvement over Helio P10
According to a report coming from China, MediaTek has released its new Helio P15 chipset, an upgrade to the quite popular Helio P10 chipset.
16nm doing well but 20nm slumps
Taiwan’s chip foundries are raking in more cash in the third quarter than ever before, according to a new report.
As Snapdragon 830 is 10nm
We are quite surprised that few people concentrated on one of the major downsides of the Apple iPhone 7 and 7 Plus – its clunky quad core A10 Chip. Far from being cutting edge, Apple is using 16nm and not the 10nm manufacturing process as many expected. Most of its competitors will soon announce their 10nm SoC.
Faster version of 16nm Helio P20
Just as it did with Helio X20, Mediatek is about to release a faster than the base original of the P20 called the P25.
Notebook GTX 1070 gets an upgrade from 1920 to 2048 cores
On Monday, ASUS, MSI, Gigabyte Sager and other industry players partnered with system integrator Xotic PC to announce a new lineup of 60 gaming notebooks built using Nvidia’s Geforce 10-Series Pascal GPU lineup – more specifically, Geforce GTX 1080, GTX 1070 and GTX 1060 GPUs.
While Vega sticks with 14nm
A little birdie told us that Nvidia is giving its Volta the 16nm FinFET treatment. This product uses stacked DRAM too so it looks like the whole thing will be pretty bleeding edge.
10 partners to launch custom boards
Nvidia got back to us with the official pricing for the Geforce GTX 1060 with more details than our earlier article we posted last Friday. The card in the US will cost $249 + tax while EU cards with VAT will range from 279 Euro. The UK price is GBP 239 which is at current exchange identical to Euro pricing. They will launch on July 19th.
