Intel’s mobile processors are widely regarded as some of the best processors in terms of power consumption and clock speeds. On April 23, Intel Announced its latest lineup of mobile CPUs with a host of new features, including the support of 5GHz clock frequency. Previously, such a clock speed was unattainable in mobile devices, such as laptops.Intel Gen-H Series Features and Specifications
Intel’s new Gen H-series claim to provide faster operating speeds and improved connectivity support than its predecessors. Compared to the 15W power draw of the previous processors, the Gen H-series processors have a wattage label of 45W. Moreover, the processor lineup [...]
AMD has expanded its lineup of embedded processors with the launch of the Ryzen R1000. It is the newest chipset by the company after the Ryzen V1000 embedded processor which was launched a while ago. The latest generation of the SoC offers dual-core, quad-threaded performance, as well as the ability to run in a fanless setup. It features low power solutions for 4K displays and offers leading-edge security features.AMD Ryzen R1000
The latest AMD R1000 embedded processor features the Ball Grid Array (BGA) packaging. This provides more interconnected pins that can be put into a dual in line or flat package. The BGA mounted SoC suggests it won’t be able to install [...]
Apple showed off the A12 Bionic mobile processors last year with the launch of the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and the iPhone XR. It was the first smartphone chipset to be built on a 7nm fabrication process. Soon after, chipset manufacturers including Qualcomm, Huawei released their 7nm mobile System on Chip (SoC) named Snapdragon 855 and Kirin 980 respectively. But what does ‘nm’ mean in CPUs and does reducing the size of the processor really change anything?Understanding The Composition Of CPUs
Every CPU whether it is of a mobile device or a personal computer is comprised up of billions of tiny transistors, which is a semiconductor used to amplify or [...]
We love hearing about the love-hate relationship between Apple and Samsung. From lawsuits to manufacturing chipsets, the relationship is as diverse and complicated as it can get. Speaking of complications, Samsung has now been shunned by Apple and will not manufacture processors for the Cupertino-based giant this year.
According to reports, Apple has given TSMC the sole authority to manufacture the next-gen iPhone 7 processors this year, which are most likely the A10. One of the reasons behind this decision is that TSMC uses 10-nanometer processors which would result in smaller and more power efficient chipsets. This is something Apple would gladly fall head over heals for as [...]
