December 20, 2016 by   | Comment: (0)

Qualcomm’s introduction of a top notch 48 core 10nm server chip means that Intel’s milkmaid can no longer serve up expensive milk from its cash cow Xeons and the lot. It’s years since Intel had any credible rival on the server front, but if Qualcomm’s hopes, as reported here, turn into reality, then Intel can wave its stonking profits goodbye. Unless, of course, Intel in sheer desperation, pulls a rabbit out of its financially top notch hat and can waste its shareholders’ money with...

Will The TeraHertz Band Increase Wi-Fi Speeds?

December 9, 2016 by   | Comment: (0)

Researchers have worked out a way to push Wi-Fi speeds to 34 Gbps using the TeraHertz band. While greater bandwidth in the 300GHz and above band has been known for a while it is pointless because the range makes it a chocolate teapot. Some researchers have managed to hit 100 Gbps but when it only works for a few centimeters it is not commercially viable. Now boffins at the Tokyo Institute of Technology have got the technology to provide a great 34 Gbps speed with a decent range. Naoto Oshimo,...

September 23, 2016 by   | Comment: (0)

The PC market is showing some signs of growth, with Intel boosting its revenue guidance based on improved chip shipments.
