Intel CEO unveils IDM 2.0 strategy

Published

on

Intel hosted Intel Unleashed: Engineering the Future, an online event where CEO Pat Gelsinger presented its semiconductor strategy. In short, the company intends not only to maintain its own production, but also to significantly expand it, hoping to become a large contract manufacturer.

Integrated device manufacturing (IDM) 2.0 includes an investment of approximately $ 20 billion to build two new factories in Arizona adjacent to Intel’s existing facility.

IDM 2.0 is built on three pillars that the company expects “will provide sustainable leadership in technology and manufacturing.

First, it is Intel’s global internal manufacturing network for large-scale manufacturing, which has been cited as a key competitive advantage. Gelsinger attributed the development of a 7-nanometer technology based on the use of EUV lithography to the success of his own production. The first product – a die for the client processor known by the codename Meteor Lake – should be ready in the next quarter. Intel’s advances in packaging technology will allow these crystals to be combined with others to provide products tailored to specific customer requirements.

Second, by expanding its work as a contract manufacturer, Intel expects to strengthen existing relationships with customers who already rely on Intel technology.

Third, an autonomous business unit called Intel Foundry Services (IFS) is being created, led by semiconductor industry veteran Dr. Randhir Thakur, who will report directly to Gelsinger. The company intends to become a major provider of contract manufacturing services in the United States and Europe.

Intel CEO promised to announce the next stage of expansion of capacities in the USA, Europe and other regions of the world within a year.

Intel plans to attract industry partners to implement the IDM 2.0 program. In particular, it announced plans to collaborate with IBM in research to create next generation technologies.

12228 stream processors 384 bit memory bus and 192MB fast cache

Another portion of preliminary details about AMD’s new generation 3D cards has been published on the Web.

12,228 stream processors, 384-bit memory bus, and 192MB fast cache.  Possible characteristics of the Radeon RX 7900 XT

It is assumed that the Radeon RX 7900 XT will be built on the Navi 31 GPU, consisting of one GCD module (the equivalent of CCD in Ryzen processors) with 12,288 stream processors and six MCD modules – each with 16 MB of third-level cache (Infinity Cache) and 64 -bit memory controller. In total, this gives 96 MB of cache memory and a 384-bit bus, but the use of bulk packaging technology will allow each MCD to place another cache chip, as a result, the total volume of Infinity Cahce will be 192 MB.

This is the full Navi 31 configuration, but there will also be a stripped-down version – with 10,752 stream processors and five MCDs – with 160 MB of Infinity Cache and a 320-bit bus. Such a GPU could form the basis of the Radeon RX 7800 XT.

Navi 32 is another contender for the Radeon RX 7800 XT (or more likely the Radeon RX 7800). It predicts the presence of 7680 stream processors, a 256-bit bus and 64 MB of Infinity Cache (there will be no additional cache memory chips). Finally, the Radeon RX 7700 XT can get a monolithic Navi 33 GPU with 4096 stream processors and 32 MB Infinity Cahce and a 128-bit bus.

Astronomers have told when the sun will die But much

European Space Agency astronomers have mapped the life of the Sun as part of the Gaia Milky Way project.

Astronomers have told when the sun will die.  But much sooner it will destroy life on Earth

The main mission of Gaia is to map the Milky Way. Astronomers track the position and movement of stars in the sky while making detailed observations of each star’s brightness and spectral classification. These values ​​can be used to determine factors such as the chemical composition and temperature of stars, which can be used to estimate the age of a star. The mass of a star remains the same with age, but the temperature changes. This value depends on the nuclear fusion taking place in the stellar core, and increases as the star approaches death.

The Sun is classified as a yellow dwarf, about 4.57 billion years old and has a surface temperature of 5772 Kelvin. Astronomers have studied similar stars with low temperatures between 3,000 and 10,000 kelvins. Such stars tend to be smaller and live longer.

Having determined the stars most similar to the Sun, astronomers calculated the time of his death. The temperature of the Sun will peak at about 8 billion years old, after which it will turn into a red giant star at an age of 10 to 11 billion years. Eventually, the star will run out of hydrogen needed for core fusion and die.

According to astronomers, the brightness of the Sun increases by about 10% every billion years. It also increases the temperature of the star and, consequently, the Earth – such changes will make our planet uninhabitable.
