On its continuing quest to push the boundaries of technology, Google has announced a project to design and build a quantum computing chip in collaboration with a University of California research team.
The new FX-8370 processor from Advanced Micro Devices has set a record for silicon processor speed, the company announced. Overclocked, the eight-core chip was measured at 8722.78 MHz.
Call it extreme. Intel just took the covers off its first-ever eight-core desktop processor, which is aimed at hardcore power users who expect more than the status quo from their computers.
Workshops known as hackerspaces are becoming part of a growing global movement that aims to dispel the myth that hackers are an ominous security threat to data and computer systems.
