Intel's 2016 Chip Line-Up Will Put Moore's Law On Hold

Moore’s Law states that the number of transistors on an integrated circuit doubles every two years — a phenomenon that Intel has been upholding for decades. But with Intel’s announcement of its 2016 silicon, the law stutters.

IBM's New Chip Is Four Times As Powerful As Today's Best Silicon

IBM has announced that it’s designed a new kind of ultra-dense chip, which squeezes in four times as much computing power as the best silicon currently available.

AMD's Carrizo: Huge Performance Boosts For Everyday Laptops

We don’t all buy ridiculously powerful notebooks. Gaming PCs, sure, but not notebooks. Normal laptops — y’know, the ones you can buy in Harvey Norman and your local computer store, the ones that cost a thousand dollars and not five thousand — are far more common, but we don’t give them as much love as we should.

AMD has just taken the covers off its latest high-performance notebook APU, called Carrizo, and the under-the-hood improvements are genuinely amazing. Say hello to double the battery life of last year’s laptops, as well as almost double the computing power.

Intel Souped Up Its 5th Generation Core Processors: Better Graphics, Faster Chips
