    Analyst Firm Susquehanna: "Intel Lost its Manufacturing Leadership"

    This "analyst" doesn't have any clue on how CMOS process works. Try comparing the half pitch and gate insulator thickness of Intel's 14nm and TSMC's "7nm" nodes.

    CTS-Labs Posts Ryzen Windows Credential Guard Bypass Proof-of-concept Video

    I hope you take this as constructive criticism. As journalists, you're supposed to represent us when you do a Q&A with a company. I'd rate TPU's Q&A with the CTS labs much lower than Anandtech's . Focusing on technical details isn't an excuse for not asking questions about their motives...

    Tensor cores are half-precision matrix multiply-accumulate units. They're good for implementing feed-forward neural networks. However, they're not going to be of much help when it comes to implementing ray tracing algorithms.

    Intel Intros Core i9-7920X HEDT Processor

    What a load of BS. You're giving credit to Intel for all high performance digital devices released in the recent years, including FPGAs, GPUs, RISC processors and other ASICs. With that logic, Intel wouldn't be here if Bell Labs didn't spend millions perfecting field effect devices.

    NVIDIA Beats AMD to Market On HBM2 - Announces Tesla P100

    US Prices of AMD Ryzen Processors Surface

    Does R7 1700 have 16 threads and 20MB cache ? If so, why would anybody spend more money on the 1800 parts, since all Ryzen processors are overclockable ?

    TSMC to Build New $15.7 Billion Fab in Taiwan, for 3 nm and 5 nm Chips

    This is a false statement. Semiconductor electronics has always been based on quantum physics. Even a simple P-N junction diode (regardless of the manufacturing node) characteristics is derived from Fermi-Dirac distribution and Pauli exclusion principle.
