Apple looking to adopt AMD chips?


Apple and AMD are in "advanced discussions" to bring the chipmaker's processors to upcoming Macs, reports "AppleInsider" (http://www.appleinsider.com). If that's true, it would end the exclusive Apple-Intel relationship that's been around since 2006.

According to "AppleInsider," Apple and AMD execs have been meeting to allow Apple to begin working with AMD processors in its labs as part of an initiative to position the chips inside some upcoming products. Apple seems to be mainly interested in AMD's workstation and notebook class CPUs, the article says.

"It is believed that Apple is working with AMD to expand its potential sources for CPUs in order to increase its flexibility and broaden its competitive options, but also likely in response to problems it has encountered with Intel," says "AppleInsider." "These issues include limited availability of new processors (which is rumored to have slowed Apple's notebook refreshes) as well as new chipset designs imposed by Intel that have blocked the Mac maker's plans to continue a partnership with Nvidia to deliver a standardized chipset for use with its Intel processors across all of its consumer computer offerings."

1849′s Nevada Silver DLC is Still Search...
A few months ago, I took a look at 1849 from SomaSim. This Gold Rush-themed city builder for iPad had a fair bit going for it, but lacked in a few crucial areas to make it a true stand-out on the App Store. SomaSim has since added in a sandbox mode, and just last week the first content expansion, entitled Nevada Silver, went live. | Read more »
