Intel 8th Generation KabyLake G-series is enormous

KabyLake G-series

One of the most surprising product announced in 2017 was Intel’s 8th Generation processor with AMD Radeon Graphics, which is an unusual combination between two competitors. KabyLake G-series, which was announced back in 2017, is an excitement of 2018. Followers from blue team and red team are eagerly waiting for this processor.

Mediatek Helio P10 processor is the mainstream processor. It is not as powerful as Helio X20 and X10. They are the powerful processor with 10-cores or 8-cores. It is the flagship processor of mediatek. But, Mediatek Helio P10 is the mainstream processor. It is also world’s first processor to use 28 nm HPC+ process. This processor stated as low power processor consumes 30 % less of existing smartphones which is manufactures in same 28 nm technology. The “P” in the SoC model name stands for “premium performance” whereas the high-end tri-cluster Helio X20 denotes “extreme performance”.

Java in Heterogeneous Computing

java

Java is an Object Oriented Language. It consist of all Object oriented programming concepts such as Inheritance, polymorphism, etc. With Object programming concepts, we can relate this programming to the real world objects. It is different from C++ as the C++ program is which is compile to machine code and executed directly by Central processing units. But Java Program is compiled to byte code which the JVM(Java Virtual Machine) interprets at runtime. Java Implementations do just in time compilation to native machine code.

ARM big.Little is becoming trendy

ARM processors are based on RISC(Reduced Instruction Set  Computing)Architecture.This architecture contains less number of instruction sets as compared to CISC(Complex Instruction Set Computing) Architecture,which is basically forms the base of x86 processors. The approach of using RISC architecture also reduce heat and power use.Hence it is used in smartphones,tablets,etc.

Heterogeneous Computing Defined

Heterogeneous Computing

As the name implies, heterogeneous computing refers to systems that use more than one kind of processor. These are multi-­core systems that gain performance not just by adding cores, but also by incorporating specialized processing capabilities to handle particular tasks. simplifying the particular discussion, an APU is a heterogeneous system that incorporates DirectX 11 discrete-­level GPU capabilities for graphics processing and other mathematically intensive computations on very large data sets, to handle visual tasks such as 3-D rendering as well as certain functions.
