In The News From around the web

During Q4, NVIDIA launched the GTX 960 GPU, as well as the GTX 965M.
This, combined with the GTX 980 , 970, 980M, and 970M launches recently have propelled the GPU revenue up to $1.073 billion for the quarter.
The GPU business also has a great lineup at the moment, especially with the Maxwell GTX lines.
Also in the GPU segment is the Tesla GPUs and GRID for high performance computing and datacenter GPU functions, and while exact numbers were not released, NVIDIA stated they had strong grown in this sector, with another record quarter for revenue for Tesla driven by “large project wins with cloud service providers and government customers.

TSMC is aiming for the 10nm Node by 2016 – 20nm Production To be Increased by Q3

by Syed Muhammad Usman Pirzada |
However even though volume production is underway, reports indicate that the process is not mature enough for high performance GPU ASICs.
Any progress and milestone of the company directly affects multiple business and fabless companies, including Red and Green.
The Broadwell K-Series processors will adopt the 14nm process node delivering improved power efficiency, better clocks and the latest Iris Pro graphics chips on the top most K-Series variants.
We can also expect better power efficiency and a significant power boost from Braswell as well.
