Matthew Zielinski, President and SVP
This happened over a month ago but I noticed recently that the former Corporate VP and President of Global sales MNC at AMD departed to do the same for job for Lenovo. This might be the biggest sales loss since John Byrne went to become the President of Sales at Dell.
The one after 2018 Turing
Fudzilla wants to make something clear. Ampere is not a mining GPU, it is not a gaming, and it is not an AI-focused Tensor Core GPU, it is all of the above, and comes after Turing 2018 GPU.
Exclusive: Will be important
Last week at the GTC we saw Jen Hsung Huang, the founder and CEO of Nvidia walking by, and of course, we had to ask him a question. The single thing I wanted to ask was his opinion about Quantum computing.
Intel has one percent Apple profits
The market is upset about the leaked news that Apple might dump Intel in its future notebooks in 2020. Apple is working on its own Kalamata chip that could power phones, tablets and Macs in the future.
That is the Vega 7nm
Many of our colleagues were excited to see the confirmation of the existence of the chip called Vega 20. This is what AMD introduced back in January as the Vega 7nm, and it is a compute chip.
Feature update version 1803
This might be the last Redstone insider preview before Microsoft officially releases its Redstone 4 spring update of the software, and it is available for X86 and ARM – Snapdragon 835 Windows 10 users on a slow update ring today.
Tough one for Tesla X
On Friday, March 23rd a man identified as an Apple engineer and former EA programmer Walter Huang died in a fatal accident when his Tesla X hit a median barrier on Highway 101 in Mountain View. Tesla has now officially confirmed that autopilot was engaged.
Gives little to none details
Nvidia’s CEO, the man known for his two hour plus keynotes that tend to become even longer, has announced the company's next generation automotive chip codenamed Orin. Nvidia gave few details about the chip but did mention it is expected to perform similarly to Pegasus.
Professor Xavier sampling now
The automotive industry is very slow to adopt technology and traditionally the life cycle of a car is six years. Every third year the car gets a facelift improvement but generally every six years you can expect a totally new platform. With that in mind, Nvidia Drive Xavier and Pegasus won’t go into production before 2019.
Phone PCB can be used for notebook too
One important change is coming in the second part of 2018. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 on Windows 10 design will be much easier as the company designed it so that the phone PCB design literary fits in a notebook. Manufacturers will be able to use the Phone PCB and with much less effort create a Snapdragon 845 for a Windows 10 notebook or tablet.
