You shall be pleased to know that Advanced Micro Devices has just started up its newest design center which is situated at Raheja Mindspace, HITEC City, Madhapur, in the center of Hyderabad’s technology hub. This design center includes number of engineering labs, equipment and office spaces, covering a massive area of 175,000 square feet which certainly is big enough to accommodate hundreds and hundreds of engineers.
We went over many of the features that will be coming to Intel’s Skylake platform yesterday. Most notably dual channel DDR4, PCI Express 4.0, SATA Express and AVX 3.2 instructions. Many people anticipated that Skylake would be a SoC (System-on-Chip) design, but the leaked slides from VR-Zone confirm that it will not be a SoC design. Just like Haswell the PCH will still be fused to the motherboard.
