Intel continues to prove their commitment to chip evolution with the [URL="http://news.com.com/Intel+moves+closer+to+flash+memory+replacement/2100-1006_3-6176959.html?tag=nefd.pop"]demonstration of new phase-change memory[/URL]. A possible replacement for flash memory, PRAM uses [URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chalcogenide_glass"]chalcogenide glass[/URL] to switch between 1s and 0s. This method could theoretically allow for faster and smaller chips, while using less power. PRAM will also last longer than flash and is less likely to become corrupted. Intel, along with Samsung, Hitachi, and a conglomerate of others has been working on such technology since 2000. On Tuesday, however, Intel held their first public demonstration at the Intel Developer Forum in Beijing and plans to start shipping samples …

Now PC hardware developers are raising concerns about the multi-cored processors included in desktop PCs. Software developers simply do not know how to take advantage of them is the claim! Well known games developer identities such as Gabe Newel and John Carmack have been loud in expressing their concerns about multicore processor technology and for good reason. Graphics processor technology has already outstripped central processor technology and is …
