Neoverse 7nm, 7+ and 5nm by 2021
Drew Henry, an SVP and the general manager of the infrastructure line of business at ARM, went on stage at the San Jose ARM Tech 2018 conference and revealed a new roadmap featuring new codenames and plans all the way to 5nm Poseidon core in 2021. It will be branded as Neoverse.
Talk about 7nm CPU and GPU
Last week it was announced that AMD’s President and CEO Dr. Lisa Su will be a keynote speaker at the CES 2019. This is a big step up for a smaller x86 player as this use to be a spot for the big players including Intel, Microsoft or Qualcomm.
Now Wall Street realizes
AMD is the second best x86 maker out of two, and this is how things will remain. The recent rumors and prediction by fellow analysts and journalists that AMD can win up to a third of the market is, pure and simple, science fiction.
Swiss knife for heterogeneous AI, cloud, 5G
The wait is finally over, what Victor Peng the CEO of Xilinx announced as the Everest, will now be branded as the Versal. This is shaping up to look like the Swiss knife of heterogeneous computing, addressing some key markets including AI, cloud, network infrastructure, 5G, automotive, and much more.

iPhone XS and XS Max have started reaching their early adaptors, and at the same time iFixit managed to dismantle it and tell us which chips are inside of the precious overpriced phone.
Brand new chip with bigger GPU
There is a lot of right and wrong information floating around the web about the successor to Qualcomm's Snapdragon 850 and we wanted to set things straight in the face of misleading information. To our knowledge, the new always connected PC chip may not end up branded the SXC8180, but something simpler. And, secondly, it is not a faster 855 overlocked, it is a brand new chip.
5G, Qualcomm and Exynos mix
The chaps at XDA developers have got their hands on a Galaxy S9+ Android 9.0 / Pie ROM and found proof and the codenames for existing and future Galaxy S10 phones.
6-core CPU 4-core GPU and a lot of AI
Apple’s A12 Bionic is the name of the most important chip inside the iPhone Xs and Xs Max and Xr detailed here. Make no mistake, this is the first to ship 7nm but not the first to sample or be announced, it is actually the third. As believers in the Apple religion don’t care about features unless they have it in their beloved iPhones, they don’t care about the rest of the world.
Announced, but first to ship
Let's get one thing straight right from the start. Apple's iPhone Xs next generation A12 Bionic SoC has been claimed by Apple’s Phil Schiller to be the first on the market. Well, it is the third, as Qualcomm and Huawei have already announced that they sampled or in production of their 7nm Phone SoCs.
