Computex 2018: AMD has Fenghuang 15FF, a new graphics chip up for display

AMD had prior plans for the Computex 2018 and the exciting unveiling of Vega 20 on 7nm with 32GB of HBM2 was already decided. But to add more to the hype, AMD has announced their new project: Fenghuang 15FF.

What is Fenghuang 15FF?

Fenghuang 15FF is essentially a new graphics chip for APUs. The name “Fenghuang 15FF” is actually the internal codename for this graphics chip, with the current codename of DG02SRTBP4MFA applied.

Hardware Specifications

Speaking of the hardware specs this Zen+ APU family chip brings in, here’s a short list:

  • 4C/8T of CPU power
  • 3GHz clock speed
  • TechStunt

Intel’s 8-core (Kaby/Coffee) Lake – The chip has been spotted somewhere!

Even being a Coffeelake processor, all the specs of this 8 Core processor don’t make it eligible to be called as Coffeelake. So the enthusiasts are calling it a Kabylake on steroids. To make it stand out, the new processor has been tested on KBL S system (which stands for Kabylake S). So this basically makes us think that it is the same old LGA1151 platform…


Cambricon, Makers of Huawei’s Kirin NPU IP, Build A Big AI Chip and PCIe Card

Cambricon Technologies, the company in collaboration with HiSilicon / Huawei for licensing specialist AI silicon intellectual property for the Kirin 970 smartphone chipset, have gone solo and created their own series of chips for the data center.

The IP inside the Kirin 970 is known as Cambricon-1A, the company’s first licensable IP. At the time, finding information on Cambricon was difficult: its website was a series of static images with Chinese embedded into the image itself. Funnily enough, we used the AI-accelerated translate feature on the Huawei Mate 10 to trans…

Hack a broken iPhone memory chip into a USB thumbdrive

Scotty Allen loves to tinker. He followed up on his recent project manually expanding the storage capacity of his iPhone with a new trick: extracting an iPhone memory chip and converting it into a USB drive. To be clear, Allen isn’t suggesting this is practical. Buying a USB drive is cheaper and vastly easier. But […]

Why AI on a chip is the start of the next IT explosion

It’s game on in the AI-on-a-chip race. Alongside Nvidia’s successes turning Graphics Processing Units into massively performant compute devices (culminating in last year’s release of the ‘Volta’ V100 GPU), we have ARM releasing its ‘Project Trillium’ machine learning processor on Valentine’s Day and Intel making noises around bringing the fruits of its Nervana acquisition to market, currently at sample stage. Microsoft with Catapult, Google with its TPU — if you haven’t got some silicon AI going on at the moment, you are missing out. So, what’s going on?

We have certainly come a long way since John von Neumann first introduced the registe…

Intel Chip Design for fix Flaw Likely To Hurt Performance

The Intel processors manufactured over the last decade contain a significant security vulnerability. Do not worry, the patch is on its way. Its use, however, means a significant slowdown of our computers. Microsoft and the creators of Linux systems in a hurry and a lot of concentration are just updates to the kernels of their […]

If Apple hadn’t introduced iPhone X at a special event on Tuesday, iPhone 8 and 8 Plus would have been its premium priced, stand-out smartphone models for 2017. But even with the new X shamelessly showing off, the relatively less exciting pair of 8s actually offer a compelling upgrade for buyers who want and need less than the absolute best, most expensive option in smartphones. …
