Intel: Seriously, our tiny mobile chips are almost here

Intel has reiterated it is on track to deliver 22nm SoCs next year, as the company attempts to close the gap between it and ARM-adopting rivals like Qualcomm and NVIDIA. "Intel's 22nm SoC [System-on-Chip] technology will be ready for high volume manufacturing in 2013" the chip company said in San Francisco this week, Reuters reports, though the company is yet to pin down production plans to any more specific a timescale.

LG’s own-design H13 Smart TV chip debuts fabless silicon ambitions

LG plans to follow in Samsung's footsteps by designing its own ARM processors, execs from the company have confirmed, with the first example - the LG H13 - set to debut in a Smart TV at CES 2013 next month. The H13 has been designed by LG but will be built for the company by TSMC, The Korea Times reports, a 28nm chip expected to use ARM's Cortex A15 architecture as Samsung adopted in the Exynos 5250 and used in the Nexus 10 tablet.

Apple CPU demand might be too much for TSMC to handle

Apple CPU demand might be too much for TSMC to handle

We've been hearing that Apple is looking to replace Samsung as the main manufacturer of the CPUs found in its iDevices, and it seems that Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacture Company (TSMC) will be the one to eventually take the reins. We're learning today that this could be both good and bad for TSMC - good, obviously, because Apple sells a lot of iPhones and iPads and would therefore need to buy a lot of CPUs. This could be bad for the same reason, though, considering that TSMC is going to need to dedicate a lot of its time and energy just to get Apple the components it needs.

Intel Q3 profits fall 14% with PC demand on the drop

Intel Q3 profits fall 14% with PC demand on the drop

With Windows 8 on the horizon and the school season just beginning, it would appear that Intel's profits this most recent quarter are not doing as well as they had the quarter before it. Today's Q3 earnings report showed Intel to have a third-quarter profit fall of 14% while they noted operating expenses as being on the climb and personal computer sales declining. The quarter reported today showed Intel with revenue of $13.6 billion, this number having a range of error plus or minus $500 million.

AT&T LG Optimus G Review

AT&T LG Optimus G Review

With the LG Optimus G, this OEM brings on its most powerful device by a long shot, with Qualcomm's Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core processor inside and a 4.7-inch TrueHD IPS+ LCD display up front, this running on AT&T's 4G LTE network here in the USA. What we're seeing here is a device that's ever so slightly confused in its identity - with more power than it knows what to do with in a device that looks and feels fabulous, but is just a bit bigger and more slippery than a normal-sized human being will be comfortable holding. Perhaps this combination of looks and processing power are enough to convince us that LG has suddenly become as much of a top-tier contender in the USA as Samsung and Apple?
