Chipsets are at the heart of all the smart devices around us. The silicon revolution has led to a rapid change in the way people do work and lead their daily lives. Each year the most prominent names in technology along with the engineers congregate at the International Solid-State Circuits Conference (ISSCC) to delve into the future of chip technology. This year’s conference presented a lot of interesting presentations that might help to improve the performance of chipsets in the future.
Here are a few of the innovations that might change the world of technology in the near future:Intel’s Move towards 10Nm and [...]
The Indian entertainment industry is massive. India is known for making the most number of movies in the world, and this industry is constantly updating itself. The buzzword around the industry is currently 4K. Creating content for 4K requires high power components such as storage, processors and GPU’s. As the content creators are making major strides to create more visual content in 4K resolution, the demand for high power equipment is also increasing. To address this demand AMD has launched its flagship AMD FirePro W9100 and W8100 professional graphics card in India.
The prominent global chipmakers introduced the [...]
A day after its competitor Intel posted financial results for its most recent quarter that came in slightly below analyst’s estimates, AMD bucked that disappointing trend – but it’s not quite out of the woods yet.
AMD reported its second quarter results on Thursday after markets closed, and reported a loss of $0.09 per share on sales revenues of $1.16bn.
In the previous first quarter, revenues came in at $1.09 billion, down 32 percent from a year ago. Last quarter, the chip maker’s net loss per share (after one-time items) was 13 cents a share, or $94 million.
AMD has a new strategy for competing in the data center, and it includes a big bet on ARM.
The chip maker Tuesday unveiled its 2014 server processor road map, which includes a new x86 APU (Accelerated Processing Unit), an x86 large-core processor, and the company’s fist ARM-based server CPU, code-named Seattle.
With Intel gearing up to refresh the midrange and high end of its Xeon E5 family of processors with “Ivy Bridge” updates in the second half, it can’t be a particularly relaxing ride for CEO Rory Read and his minivan of chipmakers.
After weeks of predictions and reports about it, the latest graphics card from Advanced Micro Devices is finally ready to land in people’s computers, or to be used in totally new systems as the situation demands.
AMD will spend most of 2013 expanding its Radeon 7000 series of GPUs, and today it made good on that commitment by announcing an incremental evolution, the Radeon HD 7790, priced at $149.
[pullquote_left] “We want to augment and solidify the  product stack, and we’ll do that through the 7790,” Evan Groenke, graphics product manager at AMD, said [...]
Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) is to release its first ARM-based chip in 2014.
The central processing units (CPUs) will power computer servers used to run websites and smartphone app services.
The US firm said the move would let it offer more energy efficient products.
It is significant because AMD – alongside Intel – has been one of the key forces behind the rival x86 chip architecture.
AMD added that it was also considering making ARM-based [...]
MSI has launched two new GPUs based on the new AMD 7000 HD platform, the R7970-2PMD3GD5 supports over voltage support through MSI’s Afterburner utility. The card comes with 3GB GDDR5 and supports all DirectX 11 titles on extremely high resolutions. Accorrding to MSI both the R7970-2PMD3GD5 and R7950-2PMD3GD5 have an ultra-long lifespan and are made with All Solid Capacitors.
Ports include DisplayPort 1.2 and HDMI 1.4a connector along with Blu-ray 3D Stereo, “Deep Color” (for true natural color representation) and 7.1 High Bitrate audio to be presented on up-to six displays through AMD’s Eyefinity Technology.
AMD yesterday announced their first 28nm GPU, the Radeon HD 7970. It is scheduled to arrive in the US on January 9th, priced at $549 (about Rs. 27,000). But looks like AMD is adding the fun to the Indian market in 2012 by planning to release it within another few weeks of the US release. The new Rig boosting GPU has a 925MHz engine clock overclock-able to 1.1GHz, 2,048 stream processors , a 384-bit memory bus with 3GB of GDDR5.

AMD has published its Q3 results, and the company reports a total revenue of US $ 1.69 Billion. With a total income of approx. US $ 97 million. This is up from the $61 million in Q2 and a whole leap away from the $118 million loss posted this time last year. Even the Graphics division (ATI) is reporting a net profit of US $ 12 Million up from the 7 Million Loss. Good going AMD , hopefully we can expect much better from them , Check out the excruciatingly long Earnings report below.

AMD has revealed plans of selling Radeon branded Ram, aimed at the gaming community. The Ram will be available in three types, the entry-level “Entertainment” sticks (clocked at 1333MHz), followed by speedier “Ultra Pro Gaming” (1600MHz) and an “Enterprise” RAM of an unknown speed.
AMD claims that the DDR3 module is tested to the highest industry standards. The price of a 2GB stick is about US$ 20 or INR 850/-.
Although there is no news of India sales.
