While most high-end Android phones currently sport Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 600, there’s another chip announced earlier this year waiting to hit the scene: the Snapdragon 800. Now, the first benchmarks of that new chip are in — and its GPU promises to smoke the competition.
AMD just one-upped its own series of eight-core FX processors, and the golden child of this newest lineup is unquestionably the FX-9590, which it claims to be the world’s “first-ever 5GHz processor”. While technically that record was already beaten — and by AMD itself, no less — it is, in fact, the first commercially available 5GHz CPU processor.
The next generation of hybrid tablets and laptops is just around the corner. Luke and I, from Gizmodo AU, head to Taiwan next week for Computex — Asia’s largest computer expo (and the second biggest in the world after CeBIT). Last year, 130,000 visitors saw 1700 companies showcase their latest, led by Taiwanese brands like Acer, Asus, MSI, Gigabyte, Thermaltake, Antec and Nvidia. Intel and AMD will also be there, of course, along with stacks of great new tech. Here’s a preview of what we’re expecting to see…
Intel’s new 4th-gen chips may be on the horizon, but AMD is taking the opportunity to strike first and get out there with its new family of third-generation A-series processors ahead of time. Enter the “Temash”, “Kabini” and “Richland” processors that will make themselves at home in upcoming tablets, midrange notebooks and powerhouse ultrathins soon.
NPR has a nice little video feature about Herrs potato chips being made, and it’s worth taking a few minutes to watch. The real stars are the animated GIFs of the machinery at work.
