Intel could be about to release a very expensive Core i9 CPU
wtorek, 16 maja 2017 18:03

Computex is right around the corner. While we don’t generally cover PC component updates, this leak about Intel’s plan is interesting. The company is apparently about to unveil a new lineup of desktop CPUs with a new high-end Core i9 CPU with 12 cores. Intel’s plans leaked on AnandTech’s board. It looks like some employee or partner took a photo of a PowerPoint presentation in German with the full upcoming lineup. With 12 cores and a power consumption of 140W, this is likely going to be the most powerful CPU in town. You’ll only be able to use it in a desktop computer, and I think it would be a great option for the upcoming Mac Pro.

Toshiba reports massive loss for year
wtorek, 16 maja 2017 15:52

Toshiba Corp reported a ¥950 billion net loss for the fiscal year ended March. The Japanese electronics giant’s results have failed to win auditors’ approval from the previous quarter, after questions were raised over the acquisition of US nuclear construction company CB&I Stone and Webster. Tokyo-based Toshiba called the results projections, rather than results, as they had not gotten auditors’ approval, but it was in line with what it had said recently. The loss was about double the ¥460 billion loss racked up the previous fiscal year.

TSMC capacity utilization ramping up
wtorek, 16 maja 2017 11:53

TSMC has seen its capacity utilization soar in May, according to industry sources. TSMC's revenues fell to a 37-month low of NT$56.87 billion in April 2017. A seasonal slowdown in chip demand for iPhone and many major Android phone makers' decision to push back their new product roll-outs led to the foundry's poor sales results during the month, the sources said. Slow smartphone demand in China that had caused excessive levels of inventory in the supply chain was another reason behind TSMC's disappointing April results, the sources noted.

Worldwide semiconductor revenue grew 2.6 percent in 2016
wtorek, 16 maja 2017 08:01

Worldwide semiconductor revenue totaled $343.5 billion in 2016, a 2.6 percent increase from 2015 revenue of $334.9 billion, according to final results by Gartner, Inc. The top 25 semiconductor vendors' combined revenue increased 10.5 percent, a significantly better performance than the overall industry's growth; however, most of this growth resulted from M&A activity. "The semiconductor industry rebounded in 2016, with a weak start to the year, characterized by inventory correction, giving way to strengthening demand and an improving pricing environment in the second half," said James Hines research director at Gartner.

Samsung is currently developing a 64-bit SoC called the Exynos 7872, according to latest industry rumors originating from China. The South Korean tech giant is said to be working on a piece of silicon manufactured using the 14nm FinFET LPP process, the same one that was utilized in the creation of the Exynos 8890, the company’s 2016 SoC that’s powering the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge. The Exynos 7872 will reportedly feature two Cortex-A73 cores for performance and a couple of Cortex-A53 cores for low-demanding tasks and energy conservation purposes, though their maximum clock frequencies remain a mystery.

Western Digital takes legal action to block sale of Toshiba's chip unit
poniedziałek, 15 maja 2017 17:57

Western Digital Corp has sought international arbitration to stop partner Toshiba from selling its chips arm without its consent, potentially derailing a much-needed capital injection for the Japanese conglomerate. Although the two companies jointly operate Toshiba's main semiconductor plant, Western Digital is not seen as a favored bidder for the world's second biggest NAND chip producer, having put in a much lower offer than other suitors, a source with knowledge of the matter has said.

Intel and Samsung gang up on Qualcomm, backing FTC monopoly suit
poniedziałek, 15 maja 2017 14:04

Samsung Electronics Co. and Intel Corp. weighed in with their own gripes about Qualcomm Inc. while cheering on the U.S. Federal Trade Commission’s lawsuit accusing the chipmaker of trying to corner the market for semiconductors used in smartphones. The South Korean company, one of Qualcomm’s largest customers, and Intel, one of its biggest competitors, filed arguments Friday in support of the FTC’s case against Qualcomm. Both contend the San Diego-based company stops them from competing fairly against it by leveraging patents that cover the fundamentals of modern phone systems.
