In Intel processors seen eight new security vulnerabilities

 В процессорах Intel замечены восемь новых уязвимостей безопасности It seems that Intel still suffering from security problems. Recently, the German Heise online reported that in the Intel and in several models of ARM discovered eight new security vulnerabilities Next Generation Spectre.

Despite the fact that details of the new vulnerabilities are not reported, there is information that they are based on the original Spectre problems, and therefore should not affect the greater part of PC users. However, large companies new vulnerabilities can bring serious problems, making it easier for hackers task to attack hosts and servers.

AMD and Microsoft have released patches to protect against vulnerabilities SpectreIntel unsuccessfully upgraded processors Broadwell and Haswell vulnerabilities …All about critical vulnerabilities Meltdown and the Spectre. Your data is (almost certainly)…

Intel is already working on a fix for vulnerabilities, and to help her in this came from Microsoft, which will release several updates to their OS to solve the problem.

While it is uncertain whether all future updates on system performance, it is quite possible that protection from Spectre Next Generation will require additional resources.

The first package of fixes released this month, while subsequent security updates will arrive in August.

AMD and Nvidia will be able to double the performance of graphics cards thanks to new technology TSMC

 AMD и Nvidia смогут удвоить производительность видеокарт благодаря новой технологии TSMC The largest contract manufacturer of semiconductor chips that the company unveiled at the technology Symposium in Santa Clara, California, has introduced a new technology to double the performance of graphics cards.

Now each GPU is produced on a thin silicon wafer on which a special technical method of forming an array of semiconductor elements, and at the last stage of metallized copper. The more complex the processor, the more transistors and other elements, the more the chip itself.

Until recently, the area of the chips has grown rapidly that was possible to restrain decrease in the size of semiconductor elements. In recent years, the process technology when production decreased from 90 to 5 nanometers, but now most of the chips use a technology from 7 to 14 nanometer, 5 nanometer products only come from experienced laboratories.

The manufacturers will be extremely difficult to go further due to physical constraints of the crystal lattice of silicon. In other words, progress came to the moment of the end of the race for nanometers. Modern graphics chips are also products of the highly complex and comprise from 6 to 12 billion transistors. It will be very difficult to continue to increase their capacity at the same pace.

More and more gamers are switching to processors and graphics cards from AMDНовые AMD is cheaper and faster rivals from IntelNvidia will help Square Enix with the development of the PC version of Shadow of the Tomb Raider

Anticipating this, TSMC has offered a technology called “plate in plate” (wafer-on-wafer), which is somewhat similar to the technology on which now produce 3D NAND memory. The idea is that on a single wafer of silicon to another place, connect them together using the well established method of flip-chip mounting, wherein the upper plate contains more silicon transitions for switching from the previous layer.

Partners TSMC from the company Cadence say that now the Taiwanese manufacturer showed a number of customers this technology on the example of two plates. However, their number can be more, and all plates, except the first, are connected through the silicon transitions.

This decision will give a great increase in performance, in some cases reaching 100 %. First, the reduced distance between the edges of the chip, the engineers will be able to place blocks closer to each other.

Second, it is not necessary to design several different families for different market segments — budget, mid, high and top, pulling the blocks from the top of the architecture. You can do architecture for the middle market and promote it on the market productive solutions by adding two or three layers.

The only requirement is that you need to take to implement this technology — extremely low reject rate. The source claims that if one of the plates in the layer will be defective, the entire chip will have to go. It will not allow you to use the technology for the production of budget decisions. You will also need to use a technical process to 16 nanometers, which gives an acceptable level of marriage.
