Speaking of companies that don’t always get along, there appears to be a critical bit of détente function between chipmaker Intel and… chipmaker AMD. PC World is stating a dual companies are auxiliary on what could be a poignant expansion in chip tech by radically inserting or fasten a high-end AMD graphics chip complement into or onto an Intel Core processor, regulating a new process called “E-MIB” that allows chips to be connected during a simple level.
The outcome is something called a “system-in-package module,” an expansion of a “system on a chip” tech now found in usually about everything. What does it meant for consumers?

Swedish supercar builder Koenigsegg recently assured a Nevada highway dialect to retard off 11 miles of ultra-straight Highway 160 between Vegas and Pahrump so they could see just how quick they could get their top-tier Agera RS supercar to go.
It strike 284 miles an hour going one approach with a bit of a tailwind and 271 going a other, for an normal of 277 miles an hour, that strictly creates it a fastest prolongation automobile in a world, if we can call hand-built $2 million-pus cars tangible “production” cars. But Guinness does, so a plea now falls to a equally ridiculous (and admittedly awesome) Bugatti Chiron and a new Venom F5, that Hennessey says may be means to tip 300 miles an hour. We’ll let we know when this new record gets broken, it’ll substantially be soon.
We’ve got some-more news on a Facebook page and YouTube channel, and be certain to balance in to this week’s DT podcasts: Trends with Benefits (general tech shenanigans) on Thursdays, and Between a Streams (movie and TV topics) each Friday.
