Samsung is teasing a chipset announcement by means of its official Exynos Twitter client. The teaser shows a bull going after a red flag, Corrida style. The name Exynos Infinity and a description entailing Samsung's latest innovations are all we got from the teaser, though. As for the architecture, we've heard Samsung will include 64-bit ARMv8 processors into its 2014 flagships, but it's unclear if those will be of the Cortex-A5x series or some custom developed ones. There's an outside chance that this will be the new chip powering the Galaxy S5 smartphone, although it's far more likely that the flagship settles for a Snapdragon 805 or an older-gen Exynos. Apple took the mobile world by surprise with its 64-bit A7 chip and so far Qualcomm has only responded in the form of an mid-range 64-bit Snapdragon 410 so it seems logical that Samsung will counter with a powerful next-gen 64-bit Exynos of its own.

Turk posted a topic in Technology NewsBy Peter Bright - Jan 29 2014, 10:45am AUSEST Calls itself the first server CPU company with an ARM chip. AMD announced plans to build ARM server CPUs back in 2012. Today the company took a big step towards making those chips a reality, announcing that an 8-core ARM System-on-Chip would begin sampling in March. Codenamed "Seattle," the processors will be branded Opteron A-series and built on a 28 nm process. The first of these will be the A1100. This will have 4 or 8 cores based on ARM's Cortex-A57 design. This is a high performance, 64-bit ARM core, and it will run at clock speeds of at least 2 GHz. The chips will have up to 4MB of level 2 cache and 8MB of level 3 cache, with both caches shared across all the cores. They'll support dual channel DDR3 or DDR4, with up to 128GB RAM. The chips will also include a bunch of connectivity: eight PCIe 3 lanes, eight SATA 3 ports, and two 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports. Rounding out the SoCs, they'll also include dedicated engines for cryptography and compression. The whole thing has an expected power usage of 25W. While these chips are aimed at high density, low power servers, AMD is also putting together a micro-ATX development kit built around the A1100. This will include a Fedora-based Linux environment with development tools, Apache, MySQL, PHP, and Java 7 and 8. This software stack is consistent with the goals of these low power servers: running Web applications is likely to be their primary role. AMD has grand ambitions for ARM in the server room. The company estimates that by 2019, 25 percent of the server market will use ARM processors with widespread use of custom designs in large datacenters. AMD believes that it will be the leader of this ARM Server market, as it brings its existing server processor expertise to bear. However, it can't be taken for granted that ARM will make itself a big force in the server room. Calxeda, an early pioneer of ultra high density, low power ARM servers, announced that it was closing down late last year in spite of tens of millions of funding and a partnership with HP. http://arstechnica.com/information-technology/2014/01/amd-reveals-its-first-arm-processor-8-core-opteron-a1100
geeteam posted a topic in Technology NewsIntel announced its upcoming Braswell SoC at the IDF conference earlier this year, set to run Windows or Android, among others, on a 14nm 64-bit architecture. We now learn that those will finally be available at the start of 2015, over 6 months from now. Meanwhile, its Broadwell K desktop architecture, the successor of its current Haswell lineup, will also reportedly be delayed until 2015. Intel hopes its Braswell Atom will enable it to be one of the major players when Android makes the switch to 64-bit architectures. The company hopes to ship its Atom architecture in a large number of mobile designs, as well as 10W desktops and AiOs as the Braswell-D, by Q1 2015. Braswell is rumored to be able to bring triple display support and DirectX 11 to mobiles. In regards to its high-end desktop processors, Intel’s Broadwell architecture is also slated to come next year, after the current batch of Haswell refresh chips goes through its lifecycle. The Broadwell K will replace Intel’s current line of LGA 1150 processors like the Core i7 4790 K, while the Broadwell E will come in place of the 130-140W Haswell C desktop configuration. Source
