At 45 nanometers, the silicon-on-insulator foundry services promise chip designs that are faster or use less power, but the technology isn't cheap.
The chip company is not going fabless in the classic sense of the word: a design house without any manufacturing facilities.
A chip in IBM's new zEnterprise System clocks in at 5.2GHz. The fastest IBM microprocessor to date is targeted at mainframes. It packs in four cores, plus a respectable helping of DRAM.
The proposed merger of the chip companies would address Globalfoundries' weaknesses in service and in its ability to produce in bulk.
Big Blue is claiming higher chip performance--but not higher operating temperatures--using next-generation 32-nanometer chip-manufacturing technology.
AMD is leaning increasingly on IBM as it battles with Intel for chip manufacturing process supremacy.
Ian Usher, the man who is auctioning his life on eBay, believes his story is the same as the story of Barry Bonds' home run ball.
The most active standards work in cloud computing is not actually around image portability or mobility, but in allowing cloud operations tools to interface with multiple public and private clouds.
New high-end server processors from IBM, Sun, Fujitsu, AMD, and Intel announced at Hot Chips last week break previous records for complexity and performance.
Company is spinning off its chipmaking operations to a new entity and taking on a greater investment from Mubadala Development. Here are the details.
