The Morning After: AMD, NVIDIA and Intel do battle at Computex

While those in the US mark Memorial Day, Computex 2019 is in full swing with hardware from Intel, AMD, ARM and NVIDIA setting new performance and efficiency benchmarks for laptops and phones headed our way later this year. The technology that companies like Samsung and Qualcomm rely on as a basis for new chips just got a significant boost, as the latest Cortex A-77 CPU claims 20 percent faster instructions-per-clock performance without hurting efficiency. As expected, AMD took the wraps off of its first 7nm Navi consumer GPUs at Computex, though the company is still playing coy with details.
