Two New X86 CPU Vendors coming to Market in 2018, 2020

One of everlasting legacies from former President of The United States (POTUS) Mr. Barrack Obama will be the creation of Chinese semiconductor industry. Following the ban on completion of Tianhe-2 supercomputer in 2014, Chinese government did not double down, but decided to put semiconductor industry as one of top 3 national priorities, and started to infuse over a quarter of trillion U.S. dollars, i.e. 2 trillion RMB (Yuan) into the domestic semiconductor industry, creating not a train, but a “Hyperloop Express” that is changing the semiconductor industry landscape. First, we’re starting to see the power of homegrown computers with ShenWei 260-core CPU processors powering the

Winter Brings Worries for Electric Car Owners

If you live anywhere in the northern hemisphere, you’re likely already aware of how bitterly cold temperatures can dip to. In the United States or Canada alone, good luck if you’re living in Alaska, North Dakota, or Minnesota, as temperatures can reach well below -1 degrees Fahrenheit. Same story with Iceland, or Scandinavia. However, you’re going to need more than luck if you’re an EV (electric vehicle) owner in a cold climate, as it appears that electric car batteries may well struggle in winter – taking more time and energy to warm up and function efficiently. Sadly, global warming pushed winter patterns from November/December to January-March,

Could Online Poker Be Odds-On For Some Virtual Reality?

Once upon a time, Virtual Reality meant clunky hardware, patchy software, dodgy films starring Pierce Brosnan, and a seemingly permanent membership of the ‘Next Big Thing’ club. In 2015, however, falling prices and endorsements from the major companies mean that VR is back on the agenda. Film-makers are using VR to make documentaries, Smithsonian is replicating first flight, gaming manufacturers are eyeing up the possibilities, while Mark Zuckerberg has been busy splashing the cash with a $2 billion Facebook acquisition of the Oculus VR start-up firm – which will come out with a retail product in the first quarter of 2016.

Smartphones Mean a World of Competition, And Gaming Everywhere for Gamers

There once was a time when online gaming meant you had to be tied to a desktop or a console.

Uncle Sam Shocks Intel With a Ban on Xeon Supercomputers in China

Just as Intel’s (NASDAQ: INTC) CEO Brian Krzanich opened the regular staff meeting before a dramatically reduced IDF2015 conference, in Shenzhen, China – it is a good time to review how government and enterprises don’t see eye to eye when it comes to strategic business. Remember the Tianhe-2 machine at Guangzhou Supercomputer Center, the current World’s number one according to Top 500 Supercomputer list? Unlike some other China supercomputers with their mixed architectures – Tianhe-2 is a fully Intel based machine,  the world’s largest assembly of Intel Xeon CPUs and Xeon Phi accelerators. Even after Intel ‘opened the kimono’ and gave a nearly 70%  discount on its processors and accelerators, it
