Way back in September 2002 did Intel first announce ‘Trigate’ transistor technology. Today, they have relaunched the brand, and taken the concept into production for the new Ivy Bridge processors. Of course, with these modern times being what they are, Trigate isn’t enough – these most certainly have to be 3D transistors. They’re probably 4G [...]

Those of you with [...]
Nvidia have announced the Tegra 2 replacement – Tegra 3. The chip is to contain four physical cores, and as before, high standards of graphics processing too. This comes right after many products were launched or announced at CES in Vegas, using the soon-to-be old hat, Tegra 2 processor.
Engadget was tipped (and confirmed) that the new Apple TV is in the works, and looks very much like the iPhone [ED:3GS - not like the new one] it would seem from the limited info available that the main focus is on streaming, and thus capacities will be limited even more, from current 160GB to [...]
It’s been confirmed (via Tinh té) that the new, much leaked, iPhone 4 will sport Apple’s Samsung manufactured, in-house designed A4 SoC (System on Chip) microprocessor. I expect, however, that they have underclocked it, in order to gain better battery life, in line with what Steve Jobs was saying at the OS 4 event back in April.
