No, because Ivy Bridge was 22nm and this is 14nm
I use google news quite a bit. It's essential for investors, for instance, if you need to know the latest company rumours.
But will it block the service for anyone with a Spanish IP, or is it just blocked from google.es?
And what about Bing, will they block Bing too?
Yes, Nvidia is always better, but what about Intel then? How does Intel OpenGL support stack up against AMD?
Investing in Chinese companies is probably a tactic to get on the good side of the Chinese government.
Consider what Intel is doing in China: giving away subsidised SoC's that compete directly with local Chinese companies. That sort of anti-competive behavour normally attacts tariffs (a similiar sort of thing has happen before US Department of Commerce Ignores WTO, Imposes Preliminary Anti-Dumping Tariffs of 26-165%
AMD will probabably leave the tablet market:
The tablet market is in a price battle and profit margins for chip makers are minuscule, said Kevin Lensing, senior director for mobility solutions at AMD.
âoeWeâ(TM)re evaluating [tablets] closely. Itâ(TM)s not our priority,â Lensing said.
The real reason why Nvidia tablet is doomed is because of the lack of games written for it. They aren't anywhere near as much AAA games as for Playstation, or XBox.
Considering that the USA reciently put tariffs on Chinese produced solar panels, because they were being subsidised by the Chinese government. I wonder if the Chinese could do the same thing, as Intel's subsidised SoC's are competing primarily in the Chinese market against local Chinese companies (i.e Mediatek)
Yes, also it's quite telling that Intel's low cost SoFIA SoC (i.e. they one that will not require contra revenue to sell) is made at TSMC, not at Intel's own fabs.
Yes, cost per transistor is what matters, but still it's not clear that Intel's cost per transistor isn't more expensive than other foundries, as they make high margin CPUs and can easily absorb larger costs. Also, the fact that Intel has to heavily subsidise their Bay Trail chips to compete with ARM SoC's is a possible indication of higher manufacture costs.
Reminds me of the joke, "My dick is 12 inchs long, but I don't use it as a rule"
And if you want a standalone app there's SumatraPDF - much faster and about 100 times less bloated
One thing that that article didn't mention was that App approvial is mostly automated. That's why so many garbage apps get in (Apps that just display a single jpeg, or Apps that are just repackaged game demos).
Unfortunately, there is no SPEC benchmark available for iOS.
Well, no one is going to write graphically demanding games until the hardware capable of running them is available.
Maybe he wanted to say "the past", but had a stroke at the last moment.
