Samsung unveils Exynos 7 Octa, industry-first 14nm FinFET processor

For a number of years, Samsung has been relying on its 20nm chip production process, giving them the current batch of high-performance Exynos processors they are using today. But with industry competitor Qualcomm still gaining the upper hand in terms of performance and name recall, Samsung is pushing forward with a new 14nm (read: smaller, less power consumption) SoC made through its patented FinFET process – the Exynos 7 Octa processor.

Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 hands-on: one cool dragon

With MWC 2015 comes new smartphones and devices, but part of the discussion will most likely revolve around the technology powering these. And perhaps there won't be a hotter topic than Qualcomm's Snapdragon 810. Not yet out in the market, except for the LG G Flex 2, the chip is already mired in controversy left and right. Does the dragon deliver all its promises without the problems that are rumored to hound it? We fly to Qualcomm's San Diego office to get a first-hand look, and the results are quite spectacular and, frankly, unsurprising.

Qualcomm enlists OEM support for Snapdragon 810

But Qualcomm has now enlisted the help of a number of major OEMs to give their stamp of approval for the new processor. In light of this, we expect consumers to still be wary, as Qualcomm has really not approached the issues head on.

Qualcomm loses “large customer”, could be Samsung

It's only January but Qualcomm is already done with the quarter of fiscal 2015. The company was proud to announce a strong quarter with record quarterly revenues. The numbers look good despite facing patent infringement lawsuits by NVIDIA the previous quarter. However, the chip maker is said to be lowering its revenue outlook for the semiconductor business and EPS expectations for the 2nd half of fiscal year. Why do that when the first quarter achieved record revenues?

Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 810 taking some heat

Pardon the pun in the title, will you? The Snapdragon 810, Qualcomm's new standard flagship chip and arguably one of 2015’s hottest commodities, is the Android industry's answer for catching up with Apple on the 64-bit issue, as well as better performance via octa-core processing. This early, though, the Snapdragon 810 seems to be taking heat from gadget manufacturers and critics for all the wrong reasons.
