  2. Intel has announced a new low-power CPU microarchitecture codenamed Tremont, which will be at the heart of the company's Lakefield chipsets. Lakefield uses a new 3D packaging technology called Foveros, and it promises more power efficiency and a smaller package, making it ideal for small and thin form factors. You may recall that, a few weeks ago, Microsoft announced that the upcoming Surface Neo would be powered by Lakefield. Tremont makes use of a 6-wide (2x3-wide clustered) out-of-order decoder to offer better performance, as well as "significant gains" in instructions per cycle over the previous generation of low-power chips from Intel. It also has 4-wide allocation, 10 execution ports - seven for integer execution and three for vector execution -, a dual load/store pipeline, and up to 4.5MB of L2 cache. It can also come with configurations between single- and quad-core. Intel also touts Core-class branch prediction. Tremont also packs a few new technologies from Intel, such as Accelerator interfacing Instructions, Intel Speed Shift, Trusted Execution Technology, Boot Guard, and Total Memory Encryption, all of which should help both performance and security. Tremont and Lakefield don't yet have a set release date, but it's been almost a year since Lakefield was first announced back in 2018, so it shouldn't take too much longer now.

  3. Microsoft is ready to release its next feature update for Windows 10, the November 2019 Update. As usual, the company has updated its processor requirements for the new version, but there are some surprises in there. For one thing, it retroactively changed the requirements for version 1903 while it was at it. It's a reasonable thing to do, since Windows 10 version 1909 is really just version 1903 with an enablement package to light up some new features. If 1909 supports certain new processors, then 1903 must support them as well. On the Intel side of things, Microsoft updated them to say that they support 10th-generation Core processors, along with Xeon E-22xx. There's also support for Atom J4xxx/J5xxx and N4xxx/N5xxx, Celeron, and Pentium, although specific models of Celeron and Pentium aren't listed. On a side note, Intel 10th-gen is listed as Core i3/i5/i7/i9-10xxx, despite no 10th-gen Core i9 existing just yet. In the AMD department, there's still support for the company's seventh-generation processors, including A-series, E-series, and FX-9000, along with Athlon 2xx, Opteron, and EPYC 7xxx. What's new for AMD is support for Ryzen 3xxx CPUs, where previously only Ryzen 2xxx processors were listed. What's more interesting is the Qualcomm CPUs that are listed. Previously, version 1903 supported the Snapdragon 850, but that's removed and replaced with both the Snapdragon 855 and the Snapdragon 8cx. It's unclear if this is a misprint, but the Snapdragon 855 was never supposed to be a PC chipset; it's for smartphones. It's possible that Microsoft meant to write Snapdragon 850, which is a PC chipset that's based on the Snapdragon 845. Of course, we've reached out to Qualcomm for comment on this, so we'll update this article accordingly. At this time, there's nothing on the Qualcomm website about a Snapdragon 855 platform for PCs. You might be wondering why Microsoft's custom SQ-1 processor - the one used in its new Surface Pro X - isn't on the list. That's because the processor isn't very custom. It's really just an SKU of the Snapdragon 8cx that has some optimizations for the Surface Pro X.

  4. Intel will reportedly ease up its entry-level processor stock squeeze in June, industry sources say. Intel has been focusing its efforts on high-performance and server-grade CPUs since late 2018 due to manufacturing constraints hitting its 14nm process node. But that policy looks to be coming to an end. Notebook clients were reportedly informed that the entry-level processor shortfall with drastically decrease from June onward, significantly reducing the CPU deficit and easing up the pressure on OEMs and system builders. This should increase notebook shipments in the second half of 2019, which had previously been stifled by Intel’s processor manufacturing crunch. AMD was reportedly set to gain due to the CPU constraints, however, during the red team’s Q1 2019 earnings call, Lisa Su claimed that the company did not see Intel’s shortfall as having any sizeable impact to its business. “As it relates to CPU shortages in the market,” AMD CEO, Lisa Su, says (via Seeking Alpha). “Look, we see a little bit of that, I would say there are pockets of footage, mostly at the low-end of the market, frankly. So, from our standpoint, I don’t believe it’s a huge contributor to our business.” So either AMD’s playing off Intel’s impact or the reported wave of OEMs fleeing to AMD’s processors may have never arrived. Nevertheless, according to sources speaking with DigiTimes, major OEMs – such as Dell, HP, and Lenovo – are all back to placing orders with Intel rather than side with the red team. Intel’s small-fry entry-level clients have been hit worst of all by the 14nm manufacturing crunch, as the company has preferred to instead turn its attention toward products with high margins and deliveries to its most sizeable partners. Intel Japan’s president had previously suggested that it would take until December before the company would be able to entirely rectify the processor shortages. And Bob Swan, Intel’s CEO, indicated the shortage would continue through Q3, while also promising to “never again to be a constraint” on its customers’ growth. Intel’s CPU shortage had been expected to ease with the gradual influx of 10nm mobile processors starting to ship at the end of 2019. Desktop parts, however, are not expected to make the change towards the denser process node until late 2020. Rather us gamers will have another 14nm generation with Intel Comet Lake, reportedly featuring up to 10 cores. View: Original Article.
  5. Recently, India’s first open-source Shakti processor was announced, which has been funded by the Indian Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology. Now, the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Madras has released the software development kit (SDK) for the processor. The institute has also promised that the development board will soon be released. The RISE group at IIT Madras had started working on the Shakti project in the year 2016 with a plan to release a family of six classes of processors, each serving a different market. Also, the group has promised that the reference processors will be competitive with commercial offerings in terms of area, performance and power consumption. The six classes of processors include E-Class, C-Class, I-Class, M-Class, S-Class, and H-Class. The E class is a 3-stage in-order processor targeted at embedded devices such as Internet of Things (IoT) devices, robotic platforms, motor controls, et cetera. The C class is a 32-bit 5 stage in-order microcontroller-class of processors supporting 0.2-1 GHz clock speeds. It’s aimed at mid-range application workloads and has a very low power profile, along with optional memory protection. On the other hand, the I class 64-bit out-of-order processors support 1.5-2.5 GHz clock speeds and support for multi-threading. It targets mobile, storage and networking applications. As for the M class processor, the M stands for multi-core and supports up to eight CPU cores. The S class processors are aimed at the workstation and server-type workloads. It’s an enhanced version of the I class processor that features multi-threading support. The H class processor is for the high-performance computing and analytics workloads. Its primary features include high single-thread performance, optional L4 cache, as well as support for Gen-Z fabric and storage-class memory. As per the reports, the RISE group is also working on two new experimental classes of processors — T-class and F-class. More Info at: [ Gitlab ] Source
  6. Ever since AMD released the Zen-based Ryzen CPUs, their fortunes have overturned. The company sent rival Intel into a panic, resulting in price cuts and unplanned product launches that made a mess of their product lineup. But before Ryzen, things weren’t so “green” for AMD. The infamous Bulldozer architecture and its reiterations in the form of Steamroller, and Excavator were far from successful. On the other hand, Intel’s Core architecture and its successors kept on building a formidable lead over team red’s processors. This finally resulted in the pre-Ryzen scene where octa-core AMD CPUs were equal to quad-core Intel chips and even dual core at times. Now, things have gotten much better for Dr. Lisa Su and Co, but let’s go down memory lane and see how CPU architectures have improved over the past decades. AMD CPU Architectures from 2003 to 2018: Single Threaded Performance or IPC AMD was much better off back in the early 2000s when the 64-bit version of the x86 instruction set came out. The Sledgehammer and Opteron server chips were quite competitive if not groundbreaking (well, definitely not the latter). After the K8 architecture, things started going south, when Intel released its Core microarchitecture, popularly marketed as the Next-Generation Micro-Architecture. Bulldozer only made things worse, with the IPC taking a dive to pre-K10 times. This wasn’t because Bulldozer wasn’t a new design, it’s just that it was a moronic new design. They decided to go with higher core counts, but with shared logic. These “cores” weren’t cores, but in-fact just ALU clusters. Traditional CPU cores have their own frontend, cache, and floating point units, but AMD’s Bulldozer had two cores/Integer Clusters sharing the frontend, cache, and floating-point logic. This made the CPUs easier to build, but also severely handicapped their single-threaded performance due to the limited resources available to each thread or “core”. This was known as Clustered Multi-Threading (CMT). And then came Zen, otherwise known as the Ryzen series which drastically improved the CPU IPC (by almost 70% while Intel’s Core architecture was reaching its limits). The rest happened in the last few years and is history. Intel CPU Architectures from 2003 to 2018: Single Threaded Performance or IPC Intel’s story is the exact opposite. Before the Core microarchitecture came up, team blue was rather deep in **** with the Prescott processors being a major failure, both in terms of performance as well as efficiency. However, thanks to the new Core architecture, and at the same time AMD’s Bulldozer being a massive flop, things just kept getting better and better for Intel. That is until Skylake, since then Intel has abandoned its Tick-Tock design model and has been stuck on the 14nm node. AMD, on the other hand, has regained much of its lost ground and is ready to transition to the 7nm node with Zen2. There’s really not much to say about the present situation of the CPU market. Intel is struggling to migrate to the 10nm node, and if the recently leaked roadmaps are legit, then that’ll continue for the time being. AMD, on the other hand, has regained its lost market share thanks to the efficiency of the Zen micro-architectures and is looking to take the fight to Intel in the server territory as well. Zen2 might just make up for the blunder that was the Bulldozer design and in the process give its competitor a thorough pummelling. I suppose we’ll know soon enough. View: Original Article.
