High power consumption and short battery life have been the bane of mobile devices for as long as they’ve existed. But that might soon change with SuVolta PowerShrink platform. The transistor technology could help reduce power consumption on some of our most ubiquitous devices—smartphones, tablets, and notebook PCs.
The latest mobile-related rivalry kicked off this week when Intel announced it is shifting the “center” of its operation from PC processors to smaller, more power efficient chips aimed at the mobile market, where UK chip maker ARM now dominates. It’s a move as significant as Intel’s introduction of Pentium processors way back in the dark ages of the 1990s.
Sometimes it’s hard to believe there are other tablets suppliers out there besides Apple, but it’s monopolistic status hasn’t stopped the industry from growing. According to Mashable, Intel plans to introduce more than 10 new tablets this month at the Computex trade show. The trade show will be held in Taipei City, Taiwan from May 31 to June 4.
Advancing the silicon transistor has always been a process of addition and subtraction: add power and efficiency while making the unit itself ever smaller. In fact, the idea that technological advancement would allow the number of transistors able to be placed on an integrated circuit to double about every two years—originally posited by Intel co-founder Greg Moore in 1965—has held true for so long as to be accepted as Moore’s Law. This has been important because the silicon transistor is essentially the building block for modern consumer electronics—the smaller and more powerful we can make them, the smaller, more powerful, and more capable we can make our personal tech.
Tech and financial publications are abuzz about Intel’s newly announced 3D transistor design. But should anyone else care? Yes, because this new design is going to give us faster mobile devices with significantly better battery life than we have ever seen before. 3D in this instance refers not to an illusion created for entertainment or gaming but to the reality of a transistor that rises up from a flat surface.
An updated model of iMac computers are expected to go on sale tomorrow, predicts AppleInsider, based on recent activity in Cupertino. Apple is currently updating various operating segments most likely to ensure a smooth product roll out. On the retail side, sources also confirm a “visual night” at Apple stores tonight, in which Apple employees work after hours to prepare a new product for sale.
