Samsung has reported they are beginning mass production of 7nm chips using extreme ultraviolet lithography (EUVL). This is a significant step forward for chip fabrication. 7nm alone feels like it borders on the physically impossible. But using EUVL brings in a lot of other benefits, like shrinking production cycles, and increasing potential transistor density. Samsung is […]
AMD announced their second generation Threadripper CPU, now with up to 32-cores on a single socket. This would seem to be a direct consumer adaptation of their EPYC server platform. But interestingly, the underly consumer TR4 platform may limit performance due to memory limitations.
Low Power DDR memory is an incredibly important component of all mobile devices, reducing power consumption while often offering laptop competing speeds. Samsung recently announced the first LPDDR5 DRAM chip targeting major upgrades over the previous generation LPDDR4X.
Toshiba, Western Digital, and Bain Capital have finally reached an agreement that will allow Toshiba to sell their chip division. How will this effect the overall NAND market?
