Researchers with an alliance led by IBM have produced an ultra-tiny computer chip that's 50 percent smaller than the smallest chips in use today and could enable much higher computing performance.
Hoping to claw its way back into the processor market, AMD just rolled out a new line of graphics cards boasting features such as high-bandwidth memory and DirectX 12 support.
