Qualcomm last week announced its Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor. The significant improvement is enhanced AI that will operate behind the scenes to improve the user experience significantly on phones
MediaTek's brand is often associated with affordable, budgeted, Android phones. However, the company has made incremental inroads into the more premium, high-performance models. The launch of the MediaTek Dimensity 9200 chip is a potent step in that direction
What AMD announced was truly striking and impressive in several ways. It's also a testament to how AMD's return to silicon glory, primarily due to the stewardship of CEO Lisa Su, has turned the company into an execution juggernaut since her arrival in October 2014, only eight years ago

Up until last week, for discrete graphics you had a choice of two vendors: AMD which was the leader in value, and Nvidia which tended to lead in absolute performance. While those two firms often trade places, the battlefield was well defined. Now, Intel is bringing high-performance graphics hardware...
Apple unveiled souped-up models of its iPhone SE and iPad Air, and introduced a new desktop at an online event Tuesday. In addition, Apple introduced the Studio Display, a 27-inch, 5K Retina screen with a 12 megapixel Ultra Wide camera and six speakers with spatial audio
