A teardown of Motorola's new flagship Moto 360 smartwatch reveals it is powered by a four-year-old processor - the same silicon that powered the company's first smartwatch released in 2011 - and a battery with 10 percent less capacity than the advertised specs.

ARM's processor and security technology have been tapped to power Atmel silicon designed specifically for wearable tech and automaton factory solutions.
Despite the claim, Apple's dual-core A7 silicon outperforms Qualcomm's 2.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor.
Once it was talk of increased MHz and GHz that dominated new processor launches, now with its Haswell silicon, Intel shifts focus away from power and instead shifts focus onto power consumption.
If the leaked details are correct, this new processor will give silicon from Samsung and Qualcomm a serious run for their money.
Intel posted to its website -- and then hastily removed -- details of its upcoming Core i7-3970X Extreme processor. This six-core 3.5GHz silicon behemoth can be yours... for a hefty $1,000.
One of the server industry's worst-kept secrets, Intel's much-delayed Xeon E5 processor platform (Romley/Sandy Bridge E), is due to be officially unveiled tomorrow (6 March). Xeon processors are also widely used in workstations, and we recently took the opportunity to test an all-new Xeon E5 workstation ahead of the launch, to see what the new silicon has to offer.
Yesterday AMD refreshed its processor line, adding some 100MHz to 200MHz performance boost to its silicon for no extra charge.
Silicon Image, Inc. has developed and released a new, 18-megapixel camera processor IP core: the camerIC-18.
AMD appears to be on track to release its first "Fusion" processor that combines an x86 CPU core with a graphics processor on a single silicon chip sometime in 2011. The first so-called APU, or Accelerated Processing Unit, is code-named Llano and will be manufactured using 32nm process technology.
You know something funny, despite the current economic downturn, my Hardware 2.0 mailbox provides conclusive proof that there are folks out there who want to spend up to $1,000 on Intel's newest piece of silicon - the Core i7 processor. But what do you need to get make your "Extreme" rig Core i7 ready?
Movidia has announced working prototype silicon for its mobile-phone processor that enables in-place video editing.
Irish start-up Movidia has announced working prototype silicon for its mobile-phone processor that enables in-place video editing
On Monday Intel announced the first mobile quad-core processor called Penryn. The new silicon is the cousin to the Penryn desktop processor, the Core 2 Extreme QX9650, announced on 12 November 2007.
AMD added a triple-core processor to its desktop roadmap and could find itself with some open field in the core wars. The processor, the AMD Phenom, has three brains--computational cores on a single die of silicon.
Since news first broke that AMD's Barcelona will be six months late (confirmed by AMD CEO) and six hundred megahertz short on clock speed, the microprocessor community began to wonder aloud whether AMD's 65nm SOI (Silicon On Insulator) process is fundamentally broken. The fact that there are absolutely zero production AMD processors beyond the 65nm Athlon X2 desktop processor at 2.
In a little under an hour, researchers at the University of Texas in Austin plan to reveal a fully functional prototype of a new computer processor it's proponents claim will scale to the "end of silicon." The processor is called TRIPS, which stands for Tera-op, Reliable, Intelligently adaptive Processing System.
Texas Instruments DLP - Digital Light Processor - technology has been one of the nicer things to come out of Dallas of late. Otherwise known as mirrorchip, the tech is an array of millions of tiny hinged mirrors etched out of silicon in a single device no bigger than a large postage stamp.
The AMD-based t5720 is a welcome addition to HP Compaq's family of thin clients, but documentation needs to be improved.
A Silicon Valley start-up bets that AMD's Opteron processor and built-in networking will help its high-end x86 servers succeed where others fail.
