  • Just not enough to ever buy any.

    He's a guy who will never, ever have the backbone to put his money where his mouth is.

    But we already knew this.

    Now watch as he pulls my finger.

    Apple's iPad shipments in the first quarter of 2015 hit 12.62 million units, which is a drop of 23 percent from the year-prior quarter. Samsung fared similarly, with a 30 percent decline in tablet sales for the first quarter of 2015, compared to the same period a year ago.

    From E Week

    [In the meantime:

    "Strategy Analytics estimates that Intel's tablet AP shipments registered over 300 percent year-over-year growth in 2014 and for the first time Intel ranked number one in the non-iPad tablet AP supplier market on an annual basis. Intel is well positioned to continue its tablet AP momentum in 2015 with the help of low-cost Atom X3 and 14 nm-based Atom X5 and X7 APs."

    Research firm IDC expects sales of Windows tablets and two-in-one devices to surge 41% year over year in 2015 and account for 7% of the global tablet market. By 2019, IDC believes that Windows devices will account for 14% of that market. ]

    Analysts claim AMD will be bankrupt by 2020

    "It can be, I bought AMD in the low single digits over 10 years ago after seeing Athlon64 and sold it in the tens of digits a couple years later. These Analysts are looking at the rear-view mirror, AMD is going back to its core competency designing high-performance x86 chips after realizing all the tangents it has been down lately are dead-ends. There is no reason why one cannot be invested in both INTC and AMD if you think their combined IP will still be taking chunks out of ARM's licensees and there won't be any price-wars this time as AMD does not need to fill a FAB. At the moment AMD is not worth investing in but I am looking for a bottom around 2 if I re-enter it after all these years if Zen is good."

    [Well, AMD used to have a number of strengths they don't have any more. This makes it much more difficult to turn a single product success into organizational success. And they are fabrication dependent on the foundries - not a good position to be in. I would be sad to see AMD go. They have helped to keep Intel competitive. ]

    Another tablet gains (some) support for Remix OS

  • Remix OS is a custom version of Android aimed at making Google’s smartphone and tablet operating system feel more like a laptop or desktop OS designed for productivity. Jide, company behind the operating system, was formed by former Google employees and they unveiled the software earlier this year along with a tablet designed to run Remix OS called the Remix Ultra Tablet.

    But the Remix Ultra isn’t the only tablet to support Remix OS software. Recently Chinese tablet maker Cube unveiled a new tablet that will ship with the operating system. And now rival Teclast is working to bring the software to the Teclast X98 Air 3G tablet.

    It features a 9.7 inch, 2048 x 1536 pixel display, an Intel Atom Bay Trail processor, 2GB of RAM, and 32GB of storage. It sells for around $200 and there are already dual OS models available which ship with Android and Windows software. Now Teclast is testing Remix OS, offering a downloadable, installable version of the operating system to members of the Teclast forum.

    [Another option with Android and Windows. Intel goes where ARM can't follow. This is proving to be a huge competitive advantage.]

    ...investors should be aware that with mobile device sales nearing saturation point in critical markets, buyers increasingly switching from premium products to cheaper models, and competitors such as Intel boosting R&D in this area, ARM Holdings could see these growth projections come under pressure. And with the firm dealing on elevated P/E multiples of 37.4 times and 31.6 times for 2015 and 2016 correspondingly, the business remains highly susceptible to a sharp share price correction should the outlook in key markets become muddier.

  • The chip maker contributes some optimizations that help Edge deliver brisk browser performance, high-fidelity visuals and better battery life.

    Edge, formerly Project Spartan, is the new default browser for Microsoft's upcoming Windows 10 operating system. Representing a break from Internet Explorer's past—including ditching ActiveX—Edge is a more streamlined and modern take on Windows Web browsing that includes a stripped-down user interface and Cortana integration.

    "As a part of broader collaboration between Intel and Microsoft on Windows 10, Intel engineers are collaborating with us closely to implement [single instruction, multiple data (SIMD)], a future ECMAScript proposal, in Chakra and Microsoft Edge," wrote Microsoft's Rob Hwacinski and Gaurav Seth, principal program manager leads for Edge and Chakra, respectively, along with Juan Rodriguez, an Intel senior principal engineer, in a joint blog posting.

    In short, users can expect snappier, more responsive Web experiences with less processor overhead.
    "SIMD exploits data level parallelism by utilizing specific SIMD hardware instructions, which are supported in most of the modern chipsets regardless of the architecture types," stated the group. "The SIMD instruction set enables performing the same operation on multiple values simultaneously, thus providing much faster code execution when working on data vectors." Another perk is extended battery life, they said.

    Interactive and media-rich sites also stand to gain from the improvements. "SIMD is extremely useful in scenarios like video processing, multimedia, gaming and others. Combined with technologies like asm.js, SIMD could turbocharge and help JavaScript content run at near-native speeds," the bloggers wrote.

    Analysts claim AMD will be bankrupt by 2020

    The report said that AMD is engaged in a relentless diversification drive, pursuing "growth markets" without being able to create a stronghold in a specific one – apart from the semi-custom business in gaming.

    Yet AMD's ability to capitalize it is grossly overestimated. Last quarter AMD hinted at virtual reality as a potential growth channel yet commercial applications of this technology are still years away from materializing. Even if it were, it is very unlikely that this could constitute a promising outlet for its GPU and CPU based semicustom business, the report said.

    "We agree that these may be potential future growth avenues but these are extremely long shots, more suitable for companies with deep pockets, such Samsung Intel - certainly not for an ailing chipmaker. The semi-custom business is more promising but even here, AMD chose the wrong path," the report said.

    "If Zen is a good chip I will consider buying some AMD."

    "The "silliness" I was talking about is fact. Why would Samsung sell one device for $500 and another for $200 which contain the same SoC?"

    [Still waiting for you to find someone, anyone in the tech press who agrees with you.]

  • Ash speculates that the new mysterious Intel device might be the Galaxy Tab S2. And he suggested that the reason might be lack of capacity rather than the silliness that Monk suggested and presented as "fact".

    "Why wouldn't Samsung use its own processors here?

    Another question worth exploring is, "Why wouldn't Samsung use its own parts here?" The two Samsung-designed parts that would be most suitable for a Galaxy Tab S2 are the Exynos 5433, which first appeared in the international version of the Galaxy Note 4, and the Exynos 7420, which currently powers the Samsung Galaxy S6 smartphone.

    I don't think Samsung built out too much 20-nanometer production capacity, and it is using what capacity it has there to build chips for the Note 4. My guess is that Samsung also has its hands full trying to produce enough 14-nanometer chips for the Galaxy S6."

    "Since AMD spun off its manufacturing business into GlobalFoundries in 2009 and as
    GlobalFoundries expands its client base, AMD is losing its ability to enjoy any preferential treatment with only two pure, foundry-model players remaining."

    [Once again the failing ARM foundry model concept crops up.]

  • With Samsung reducing its dependency on Qualcomm by incorporating its own SoC in its flagship, the Galaxy S6, it appears that the tech might be eying some other firm’s mobile chipsets to be placed in its future products. On this occasion, a source states that a product given the codename CHOPIN-LTE has been spotted in Geekbench’s database of devices that have gone through the benchmarking phase.

    Currently, no mobile product bearing the Samsung logo features 4 GB of RAM, but it looks like this particular model will finally feature that amount, thanks to the information listed on the benchmarking website. Additionally, there was one particular detail that will definitely take everyone by surprise; Intel Atom SoC. It is no secret that the leading provider for desktop and laptop processors is taking strides in the manufacturing of mobile chipsets that cater to all segments of the smartphone industry.
