Who remembers putting together their own rig for thousands of dollars back in the 90's? Well, times have certainly changed, because building a PC these days obviously doesn't involve a second mortgage or divorce papers.
AMD has publicly disclosed its strategy and roadmap in an effort to recapture critical server market share.
AMD has debuted the first commercially available 5 GHz CPU processor, dubbed the FX-9590. These 8-core CPUs are targeted at gamers and high-end users looking to power their rigs with some of the fastest silicon available.
Hardcore tech enthusiasts are often quite excited when hardware benchmarks tip up before they are officially available.
Santa Clara's Next Unit of Computing, or NUC, can best be described as an uber-mini x86 desktop PC powered by Intel's Core i3 processor.
Mark Cerny - lead system architect of Sony's Playstation 4 (PS4) - says the Japanese-based corporation adopted a "very developer-centric approach" to the next-gen console.
Microsoft's Xbox 720 (Next) console is slated to make its long-awaited debut at E3 2013 in Los Angeles this June.
AMD has officially launched its Richland APU (accelerated processing unit), an SoC which is powerful enough to support features like facial-based logins and precise gesture recognition.
Rockchip is currently sampling a 28nm HKMG RK31xx processor, just months after shipping its RK3066 dual-core chip with a quad-core Mali-400 GPU.
Akihiro Suzuki of the Dynasty Warriors franchise says the Wii U's CPU - which features three Power PC cores - poses certain "challenges" for developers.
Intel recently showcased a number of near-threshold voltage (NTV) techniques that promise to significantly increase processor energy efficiency by decreasing the supply voltage.
AMD has confirmed the hire of CPU master Jim Keller, a high-level chip architect who previously worked at Apple designing custom ARM-based processors for the iPad and iPhone.
Sony's next gen-console will reportedly be powered by an AMD GPU, and, most likely, an AMD CPU as well.
Researchers at North Carolina State University have developed a technique that allows graphics processing units (GPUs) and central processing units (CPUs) on a single chip to improve their level of collaboration.
Spanish engineers are developing a hybrid supercomputer that pairs Tegra ARM CPUs with Nvidia CUDA GPUs.
Apple has embedded support for quad-core ARM CPUs in its Xcode developer tool. Such processors could one day power next-gen iPhones, iPads and even future MacBook Airs.
Intel yesterday showed off an experimental chip that it says cuts a processor's power consumption so much that it could run on solar power.
In what it calls a "fundamental breakthrough in heat transfer technology for microelectronics," the U.S. Department of Energy's Sandia National Laboratories has developed the "Sandia Cooler."
Silicon Valley chip expert David Kanter says AMD has "clearly articulated" both a software and hardware roadmap for unified CPU-GPU computing that contains "all the right pieces."
AMD is kicking off an OpenCL coding competition for devs. The contest - managed in conjunction with TopCoder - challenges software engineers to code apps that take advantage of both OpenCL and APU architecture.
