Now in its 26th year, Hot Chips has always been about the big, power-hungry chips that power the world’s fastest servers. But this year ARM crashed the party.
The company claims its latest professional graphics cards can deliver twice the performance of their predecessors.
The company claims improved performance thanks to Intel's new Xeon Haswell-EP processors and support for up to 1TB of DDR4 memory.
The 10.1-inch device includes a separate keyboard to convert it into a laptop or tiny all-in-one desktop as well as coming with a protective sleeve.
At Hot Chips, Nvidia revealed some of Denver's surprises and showed the first performance test results for this souped-up version of the Tegra K1 processor designed for smartphones, tablets and Chromebooks.
Intel says that after some delays its 14nm technology is back on track and provides some new details on the technology and the first Broadwell processors due later this year.
Unlike the company's beefier 14-inch sibling, the new notebook weighs in at just 4.5 pounds and is an inch thick, while featuring an Intel Core processor and an Nvidia GeForce GTX 860M graphics card.
The new cards take aim at the high-performance supercomputing market with up to 16GB GDDR5 memory and 2,816 stream processors.
The new solid-state drives, apparently using Toshiba flash memory, will join RAM as the latest component sporting the Radeon badge.
The new notebook weighs 4.36 pounds and is less than 0.8 inches thick, but comes with the heft of a $2,299.99 starting price.
The creation of a "pure" lithium battery could offer double or triple the energy storage density of today's lithium-ion batteries for your laptop, tablet, or smartphone.
The new notebook is the first major design win for AMD's new budget mobile chip.
The business-friendly solid-state-storage lineup comes in 2.5-inch and M.2 formats with capacities up to 480GB.
After halting sales on the ThinkPad 8 and selling out of the Miix, the company promises to keep producing new 8-inch Windows tablet PCs in the future.
