Don't-Miss Processor Stories
If you have a PC running Windows 7 or 8.1 and the latest silicon from AMD or Intel, your updates are soon to be blocked.
AMD's versatile Ryzen 5 1600X is the best mainstream processor you can buy, and the key to creating an all-around PC for work AND play without breaking the bank.
Dumping Moore's Law is perhaps the best thing that could happen to computers, as it'll hasten the move away from an aging architecture holding back hardware innovation.
AMD's Ryzen 5 1600X challenges Intel's vaunted Core i5-7600K for best $250 CPU. Here's what the benchmarks told us.
Chips based on the SPARC architecture have been saved from endangerment with Fujitsu taking on the mantle of continuing design and development.
Intel is preparing for the future and making big changes in the way it designs chips
Apple will soon stop using intellectual property from Imagination Technologies Group for its iPhone and other devices, as it is working on a separate, independent graphics design for its products.
If you're expecting to buy laptops with Intel's next-generation Cannon Lake chips by the end of this year, you may be disappointed.
Intel's new Optane Memory is aimed at non-enthusiast users, but only those with at least a Core i3. Celeron- and Pentium-based PCs are out.
AMD's optimization promise for Ryzen appears to be true. Oxide squeezed out about a third more performance from AMD's Ryzen CPUs
Intel could tap a new high-speed interconnect, known as EMIB, to join different chips together to make future CPUs.
Many scientists agree that Moore's Law is dying, but Intel's clinging on to it for dear life. It has been Intel's guiding light to make chips smaller, faster and cheaper, and the company is now revisiting some of the metrics driven by observation.
