AMD Beema and Mullins: More Horsepower, Less Juice, but Is it Enough?

Since Intel ramped up its chipsets with integrated graphics a few years ago, AMD has been losing a lot of ground on laptops and tablets—in the public mind, at least. The company just announced the rest of its product roadmap for next year. It features some significant power, and significantly, efficiency improvements—but will it be enough? Read More >>

Intel Broadwell Chips Delayed Until Early 2014

Intel's Broadwell chips, in terms of raw performance and power efficiency, are one of the few computing component upgrades genuinely worth getting excited about at the moment. Potentially eking a good few more hours out of a laptop battery at the same performance levels as Haswell chips (or even better), your charger might have to get on the dole queue. However, a production difficulty is pushing the chip's launch back a few months to early 2014. Read More >>
