Join us for the Rundown of all our 2022 Rundowns! We’re looking at the big picture and linking the various stories throughout the year. See how things like DPU and ARM drove companies like AMD and Intel to make big moves in the industry. How did technologies like 5G and Quantum Computing impact the world? Are companies looking to move away from China’s chipmaking dominance? Will hackers steal your info? Tune in for a super-sized Rundown of all these stories and more!
As we mentioned last week there’s been a lot of news around China in 2022, both dealing with the tech industry in the country as well as other countries looking to reduce their dependence on Chinese industry.
It wouldn’t be a Rundown without a hacking and security story. However, instead of just mentioning Yet Another Ransomware attack there were a couple of key pieces of news this year that colored the way that we look at intrusions.
If you want to make the big bucks in the compute market in modern times you need to have a solution for the customers that crave the best performance. HPC saw lots of development and some big news items, with Nvidia claiming lots of attention with a product line by the name of Grace Hopper.
CXL is going to change the way that computers look and act. This isn’t a shift in consumption but a fundemental change in the way they are designed and constructed at scale. From PCIe to UCIe to the next-generation server platforms, CXL is emerging as the technology to watch.
With Pat Gelsinger firmly at the reins of Intel there was tons of news, both up and down, about the chip making giant. The Rundown was there for all of it, from the spin-out of the SSD business with SK Hynix to Solidigm to the end of Optane and the announcement of new fabs in Ohio and Germany and advanced process nodes, including for third party manufacturing. But the biggest news was the extended delay of Sapphire rapids and other products and news of cost cuts and job losses.
