Hydrogen lithography breakthrough could make atomic-based storage a reality

Researchers have developed an improved atomic storage manufacturing process that could finally make ultra-efficient, high-density storage solutions a reality.

Ultra-high density storage devices have been around for a while and typically rely on single molecules or atoms to store bits of information.


Intel debuts Ponte Vecchio data centre GPUs

Intel has finally unveiled the company’s long-awaited GPU processor architecture, designed to tackle the onslaught of large data and AI workloads entering the data centre.

At AI Supercomputing 2019, taking place in Denver, the chipmaker debuted its new Ponte Vecchio GPUs, which will compete with existing offerings served up by Nvidia and AMD.

Although the accelerators will initially target the data centre market, Intel said the new architecture will eventually form the basis of its consumer chips. The data centre acceleration marketed is expected to be worth $35 billion by the end of 2025, according to Market Study Report.


Apple acquires Intel’s smartphone modem division for $1 billion

Apple all set to build integrated processors and modems of its own Apple is to acquire chipmaker Intel’s smartphone modem division for 1 billion US dollars (£803 million). The agreement comes three months after Apple ended a long-running dispute with one of Intel’s rivals, Qualcomm, to ensure it would have a pipeline of chips it… Read More
