Qualcomm unveils 64-bit Snapdragon 808 and 810 SoCs: The Apple A7 stop-gap measures continue

ExtremeTech, April. 7, 2014
Qualcomm has dabbled in 64-bit ARM chips a bit, but today is the first time the company has brought ARM’s new architecture to its flagship Snapdragon 800 line. The Snapdragon 808 and 810 are the high-performance counterparts of the previously announced 410 and 610 systems-on-a-chip (SoC), but this probably isn’t Qualcomm’s true next-generation ARM play. While 808 and 810 are clear steps forward, Qualcomm is compromising by making these chips without the custom components it’s known for.

Apple’s A7 Cyclone CPU detailed: A desktop class chip that has more in common with Haswell than Krait

Some six months after Apple shocked the world with its 64-bit A7 SoC, which appeared in the iPhone 5S and then the iPad Air, we finally have some hard details on the Cyclone CPU’s architecture. It seems almost every tech writer was wrong about the A7: The CPU is not just a gradual evolution of its Swift predecessor -- it’s an entirely different beast that’s actually more akin to a “big core” Intel or AMD CPU than a conventional “small core” CPU.

Big Data In The Home

The smart- or connected-home concept has been around for a few decades now, but aside from a relatively small community of do-it-yourself enthusiasts and luxury home owners, home automation hasn’t really caught on with the general public.

Part of the problem is that technology hasn’t quite been up to the task. That’s changing, however, as the rapid growth of home broadband and WiFi, combined with increasingly powerful mobile processors and inexpensive HD video cameras, is enabling a host of automation features not feasible a decade ago.

Merck Optimizes Manufacturing With Big Data Analytics

Producing pharmaceuticals of any kind is an expensive, highly regulated endeavor, but producing vaccines is particularly challenging.

Vaccines often contain attenuated viruses, meaning they’re altered so they give you immunity but not the actual disease, and thus they have to be handled under precise conditions during every step in the manufacturing process. Components might have to be stored at exactly -8 degrees for a year or more, and with even a slight variance from regulator-approved manufacturing processes, the materials have to be discarded.

Hardware: The Silver Lining for All Things Cloud

AbsMost every technology article I’ve read lately has focused almost exclusively on software, apps, and cloud-based technology.

All of the connections and interactions that software offers us exist only because they are communicated by our hardware. Without a tangible piece of equipment plugged into our software universe, music would be silenced, apps would never be installed, and email would forever be unread.

Bottom line: Software is nothing without hardware and we should never lose sight of that.
