Investigadores suizos han descubierto que la programación genética de las células embrionarias no es determinante y que las señales del entorno pueden tener una influencia tan fuerte sobre las células que han de formar la sangre, el corazón o las neuronas, que abandonan la trayectoria marcada y cambian su camino, asumiendo así una nueva identidad…

As AMD and Intel Struggle, a Competitive CPU Market Re-emerges

As AMD and Intel Struggle, a Competitive CPU Market Re-emerges
Last week, we covered two key developments regarding AMD and Intel. First, AMD chose to move its GPUs back to 7nm at TSMC, raising the question of what this might say about GlobalFoundries own 7nm ramp, particularly given that GF recently replaced its CEO for the fourth time in a decade and has had well-known and repeated problems ramping cutting-edge process nodes. Then Intel declared it would push back its own 10nm ramp from 2018 to 2019 — and not even the first half of 2019, just “2019.” Neither one of these things is great for either company, though the fine folks at AMD would undoubtedly note that one of them is speculation and the other is now established fact. And of course, they’d be right about that…

[ Continuous stealing of people from the smaller rival ] Intel’s Got Game? Ex-AMDer Chris Hook Joins Company’s New Discrete GPU Team
Intel has added another famous player to its discrete-graphics dream team. Chris Hook, who recently left AMD after 17 years leading the company’s global marketing efforts, announced via his Facebook page that he has joined Intel (statement below). His arrival fuels speculation that the CPU maker will be coming out with its own line of gaming GPUs to compete with Nvidia and AMD…

Huawei developing its own OS as possible Android replacement

Huawei developing its own OS as possible Android replacement
Huawei has been having a hard time trying to make it in the US over the last several months, and it doesn’t look like the situation will be improving anytime soon. While the company isn’t quite as doomed as fellow Chinese phone manufacture ZTE, which has essentially been blacklisted in the US after trade violations, resulting in an export ban that cost it its Android license, Huawei is likely taking precautions should it find itself in the same crosshairs…

Samsung, Micron, and Hynix hit with class action suit over alleged DRAM price-fixing scheme
Samsung has long relied on its chip business to help the firm to record quarters, but it’s been claimed that the tech giant hasn’t always played by the rules. A class action lawsuit alleges that the company, along with two other major manufacturers, was limiting supplies of DRAM chips to inflate the prices…

Powerful 2nd Generation AMD Threadrippers And New APUs With Zen+ Looming On The Horizon

Powerful 2nd Generation AMD Threadrippers And New APUs With Zen+ Looming On The Horizon
AMD revealed many of the details regarding its Zen+ processor architecture all the way back in January during the Consumer Electronics Show. The Zen+ architecture isn’t totally new, but rather is a refinement of the Zen architecture that debuted with the original line-up of Ryzen processors last year and propelled AMD back into a competitive position with Intel up-and-down its entire desktop processor stack…

AMD is gearing up for 7-nanometer CPUs and graphics cards

AMD is gearing up for 7-nanometer CPUs and graphics cards
It’s sampling “Zen 2” processors and has a 7-nanometer Radeon card in the lab. Intel recently told investors that its 10-nanometer “Cannon Lake” chips won’t be ready until 2019, but by then, it might get leapfrogged by its PC arch-rival. AMD told investors that it’s sampling next-gen Zen 2 processors with 7-nanometer tech in preparation for a launch in 2019. The company is also testing a Radeon Instinct machine learning graphics cards that use 7-nanometer Vega-based technology. The GPUs will be manufactured by TSMC, said AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su, but the company will also use Global Foundries, presumably for processors and other products…

Avances en Mecánica Cuántica experimental

Avances en Mecánica Cuántica experimental
Tres resultados recientes nos dicen que es posible mantener el entrelazamiento cuántico para sistemas realmente grandes. Una de las propiedades más extrañas de la Mecánica Cuántica (MC), y que hemos visto por estas páginas en varias ocasiones, es la del entrelazamiento cuántico. Se puede preparar el estado de dos partículas de tal modo que se pueden enviar en sentidos opuestos y aún así están “conectadas”, es decir entrelazadas. Si una de ellas es medida y su estado cuántico colapsa hacia uno de sus posibles estados finales, entonces el estado de la otra partícula queda determinado instantáneamente…

Hallan nueva especie de “hormiga explosiva” en la isla de Borneo

Hallan nueva especie de “hormiga explosiva” en la isla de Borneo
La ‘Colobopsis explodens‘ es una nueva especie de hormiga descubierta en la isla de Borneo, en el sudeste asiático. Cuando los investigadores la encontraron, se dieron cuenta que era una especie más de las llamadas “hormigas explosivas“. Se les llama comúnmente así por el sacrificio que practican al defender su colonia de posibles amenazas. El estudio de la doctora Alice Laciny y otros científicos austriacos fue publicado en la revista especializada Zookeys. El descubrimiento se hizo en el año 2014 en Brunei y hasta hace pocos días se hizo público. No se habían descubierto nuevas especies de hormigas con estas características desde el año 1935…

A la hormiga se le suele llamar “explosiva” por su acto de “autoinmolación”, que consiste en abrir sus propias entrañas para liberar una sustancia tóxica
