The AnandTech Podcast: Episode 45

In early February, GlobalFoundries did something completely unexpected: for the second time in ten years, they invited a few select press and analysts to visit one of their fabrication plants (‘fabs’), where they make AMD processors, IBM silicon, and ASICs from a variety of companies. We were invited to Fab 8 in upstate New York, GF’s leading edge fab, which will be the site of the company’s 7nm and EUV offerings that will propel the fastest processors over the next three-to-five years. To...

LAS VEGAS, NV – The annual CES show is biggest of AnandTech’s main six shows of the year, and with it comes a wall-to-wall meeting schedule with press events starting two days before the show is supposed to start. After clocking up the miles and calling many taxis, we managed to get an hour before flying home to discuss the headlines and highlights from the show.

The AnandTech Podcast: Episode 41

While in San Francisco for AMD’s Zen Tech Day, I had a chance to catch up with a good friend by the name of Patrick Kennedy, who runs the tech news website ServeTheHome. We frequently battle STH here at AnandTech to be the first to break news on new server platforms, but it is a friendly rivalry where often we end up picking each other’s brains for information or to bounce ideas off of each other. To that end I managed to convince Patrick to be a guest on our podcast, to talk about the...

The annual smartphone extravaganza known as Mobile World Congress has come and gone. We clocked up 45.4km on foot during the week, averaging around five hours sleep and one meal a day to be able to see everyone of interest. Because so many interesting things were presented, from LG, Samsung, Huawei, Xiaomi and others, just before we left Barcelona Andrei and I put together a podcast of details, experience and analysis of the new devices. There are plenty of talking points with each of...
