    Keep the apology with the original comment and while at it don't forget to use it for yourself ;-)

    Oh you are right, silly me, I should have looked more carefully! It looks like HDMI can't provide power so you need an external power supply no matter how low power your device is. Sorry for the mistake :)

    Intel might be catching up, but this stick requires an external power supply (through the micro USB port) which ARM-based sticks don't need.

  • Avoid The Hype: AMD's Decline Is Terminal [View article]
    Alex,

    in my humble opinion, your analysis based on the NPD figures has two major flaws:

    1. these are US only numbers
    2. the two most recent consoles (PS3 and XBox 360) have seen no decline in sales over more than 5 years.

  • Intel Developer Forum 2014: Investment Theories Confirmed [View article]
    Bruce,

    I think you have this bit wrong:

    "New Core M processors based on Intel 14nm will be in new Dell 6mm thin tablet for sale in October. 14nm technology is here."

    Dell upcoming table will be using a 22nm Moorefield (Silvermont core) SoC.

  • Intel: Dreadful Mobile Group Losses Is Not Permanent [View article]
    "I firmly believe that Shenzhen tablet producers will outsell both Apple and Samsung this year."

    Apple sold 70M tablets in 2013 and Samsung 37M. Samsung certainly is within reach of Intel, Apple I seriously doubt. Or do you also count non-Intel Shenzhen tablets (these will generate no revenue for Intel)?

    Michael,

    "If Intel, Mediatek and Allwinner can take 10 points of market share from Qualcomm revenues will be flat and margins one or two percentage points lower."

    Won't these companies still pay for Qualcomm patent licenses? My understanding is that's where Qualcomm get most of their profits from (though not most of their revenues).

  • Apple Outguns Intel [View article]
    "Don't think so since to match a Cortex A57 quad core they need an archtiectural upgraded cyclone quad core. I would expect something 120 mm^2.."
    Are you assuming they'll stay on the same process?

    Anyway, even at 120mm² we're talking of about 500 chips per wafer.

    You can place 600 100mm² chips (assuming Apple keeps the same die size) on a 300mm wafer (see http://bit.ly/1ilY1SF).

    "Cache miss is typical in general."

    No it isn't, unless you're talking about server-like loads. Many real life programs such as browsers get more than 85% data cache hit with a 32KB cache.

    I don't think A5 to A6 time is relevant, as A6 was the first SoC with a CPU designed by Apple.

    A6 was released in Sept '12 and A7 in Sept '13.

  • Applied Micro's X-Gene Proves Uncompetitive [View article]
    Don't forget Broadcom and Cavium, even though they are network oriented :-)

    Then I probably wrongly thought the 28nm X-Gene was the real thing...
