    Anandtech: Xilinx Announces World Largest FPGA: Virtex Ultrascale+ VU19P with 9m Cell

    We don’t often cover the FPGA market here at AnandTech, but in the past couple of years we have seen the array of features that FPGAs are implementing expand at an incredible rate. Xilinx has been at some of the forefront of those innovations, with products such as Versal on 7nm and its Alveo family. One key part of Xilinx’s business is emulation and simulation, which requires large FPGAs to fit large designs onto - and the company recently lifted the lid on its latest creation, the Virtex Ultrascale+ VU19P. This new FPGA, when it comes to market, will hold the title of the World’s Largest FPGA.

    Anandtech: TSMC Responds to Lawsuit by GlobalFoundries: Allegations Are Baseless

    TSMC has responded to GlobalFoundries accusations of patents infringements. The world’s largest foundry said that it would defend itself in courts and that it considered allegations as baseless. The contract maker of semiconductors said that throughout its history it was granted 37,000 patents and naturally considers itself one of the leaders in the industry.
    On Monday GlobalFoundries said that TSMC, a number of its customers, as well as makers of various products infringed 16 of its patents covering various aspects of chip manufacturing. In particular, GlobalFoundries claims that TSMC’s 7 nm, 10 nm, 12 nm, 16 nm, and 28 nm nodes illegally use its intellectual property. Among defendants, the company named Apple, Broadcom, Mediatek, NVIDIA, Qualcomm, Xilinx and many others. GlobalFoundries seeks damages from TSMC and wants courts to ban shipments of products that use infringing semiconductors into the USA and Germany.

    HiSense
    Lenovo
    Motorola
    TCL
    OnePlus
    Avnet/EBV

    Mouser
    Quite naturally, TSMC denies any allegations and claims that it will defend itself in courts. The company stresses that it spends billions of dollars on R&D and has been granted 37,000 patents worldwide. Typically, high-tech companies counter-sue each other in patent infringement cases, so it will not be surprising if TSMC decides to sue GlobalFoundries. In the end, this is what patents are for. Meanwhile, unlike GlobalFoundries, TSMC will unlikely sue fabless designers of semiconductors that use the former’s services to a large degree because the vast majority of chip developers are it slients.
    The statement by TSMC reads as follows:
    TSMC is in the process of reviewing the complaints filed by GlobalFoundries on August 26, but is confident that GlobalFoundries’ allegations are baseless. As a leading innovator, TSMC invests billions of dollars each year to independently develop its world-class, leading-edge semiconductor manufacturing technologies. As a result, TSMC has established one of the largest semiconductor portfolios with more than 37,000 patents worldwide and a top 10 ranking for US patent grants for 3 consecutive years since 2016. We are disappointed to see a foundry peer resort to meritless lawsuits instead of competing in the marketplace with technology. TSMC is proud of its technology leadership, manufacturing excellence, and unwavering commitment to customers. We will fight vigorously, using any and all options, to protect our proprietary technologies.

    Anandtech: Qualcomm Updates Wi-Fi 6 Lineup: Networking Pro Series for APs and FastCon

    Qualcomm is announcing an update to its Wi-Fi 6 portfolio today with a host of new access point solutions under the Networking Pro Series moniker. The client side solutions are seeing a re-brand - instead of the staid QCA-prefix, the solutions now carry a FastConnect tag.
    Qualcomm was one of the first vendors to announce 802.11ax (Wi-Fi 6) solutions back in February 2017. Both Broadcom and Intel announced their Wi-Fi 6 product portfolio later that year. Qualcomm's access point solution stood out in the crowd for being a 12-stream solution, enabling it to get traction in the enterprise space. However, the high cost relegated them to the high-end consumer space. Given that the lack of clients had been hampering the adoption of Wi-Fi 6 over the last couple of years, this was a tiny niche to play in. Meanwhile, Broadcom and Intel had plays in the low-end and mid-range segments with solutions supporting between 2 and 8 streams, with routers already shipping to consumers. The Networking Pro Series being launched by Qualcomm today finally gets Qualcomm into the picture across all the segments of the access points / wireless routers market.
    The Networking Pro Series has four members, with support for up to 4, 6, 8, and 12 spatial streams. The 600 and higher products in the stack also support Wi-Fi SON, Qualcomm's mesh networking feature set. One of the interesting features here is the ability to split up the spatial streams in different ways depending on the end application. For example, a mesh networking product could use the Networking Pro 1200, and split up the 12 streams as two 4x4 for the client devices, and one 4x4 for the backhaul. For a traditional wireless router, it could be configured as 8x8 + 4x4.
    Qualcomm is also finally enabling uplink OFDMA in the new products - this was one of the features supported by both Broadcom and Intel in their first-generation portfolio, but not by the Qualcomm IPQ8074 launched in 2017. Qualcomm's press release for the Networking Pro Series includes quotes from the usual suspects - Netgear, Belkin (Linksys), Ruckus Wireless, and Aruba, a Hewlett-Packard Enterprise company. Netgear's quote also included the upcoming Orbi Wi-Fi 6 mesh networking solution as one of the products utilizing the new product line.
    On the client side, we are starting to see some high-end notebooks rolling out with Intel's Wi-Fi 6 solution. The Samsung Galaxy S10 used Broadcom's chipset for Wi-Fi 6 support. Most of the currently shipping Snapdragon 855 phones have only 802.11ac support. Qualcomm is re-branding their product stack in this space - the currently shipping solution is getting the FastConnect 6200 branding, while the QCA6390 (announced at MWC 2019) will be marketed as FastConnect 6800. It is highly likely that FastConnect 6800 will feature in many of the upcoming high-end mobile handsets.

    Anandtech: AU Optronics's New 85-Inch 8K LCD TV with 1,024-Zone Backlighting

    AU Optronics this week showcased a prototype of its most advanced 8K Ultra-HD display featuring an innovative full-area local dimming (FALD) backlighting solution and peak brightness of 2,000 nits. At present, the screen is a proof of concept and AUO does not make any promises regarding its commercial availability of this unit, but it might migrate into a consumer product in the future.
    AUO’s most advanced Ultra-HD ALCD TV display relies on an 85-inch panel featuring a 7680×4320 resolution and peak brightness of 2,000 nits. The device has a FALD backlighting with 1,024 zones, so contrast ratios supported by the monitor should be very high. Unfortunately the press release has no word about maximum refresh rate and other features, except that the 8K UHDTV prototype supports high dynamic range, but AUO does not disclose the exact type.
    AU Optronics says that its 8K panel with a 1,024-zone FALD backlighting can be mass produced, but says nothing about its price or potential availability timeframe. Considering the fact that 85-inch 8K LCD panels cost a lot and FALD is very expensive in general, we expect UHDTVs based on AUO’s 85-inch 8K panel with FALD to be extremely pricey. As for approximate ETA date, many makers of 8K televisions and panels plan to offer their next-generation products in time for 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

    Anandtech: AU Optronics OLED Displays: A New Foldable + A New 17.3-Inch 4K120

    AU Optronics, which is mostly known for its advanced LCDs for televisions and computer monitors, this week demonstrated its latest OLED-type displays for various applications. The company has developed a 5.6-inch foldable AMOLED display for smartphones and similar applications as well as a 17.3-inch OLED for laptops, displays, and small form-factor TVs.
    Going for Foldable

    AUO’s 5.6-inch foldable AMOLED display can be folded inwards or outwards for 200,000 times at 4-mm folding radius, which is good metric for smartphones. The screen is made using a process technology designed by AU Optronics, it uses a plastic substrate as well as AUO’s proprietary flexible touch panel.
    The manufacturer does not disclose resolution of its flexible AMOLED display, but it is logical to expect it to feature a competitive pixel density.
    OLED 4K120

    The 17.3-inch screen looks somewhat more impressive. It is AUO's first monitor that relies on ink jet printing OLED technology, it features a 3840×2160 resolution, a 225 PPI pixel density, and has a 120 Hz refresh rate. AUO states that it is an IJP OLED that supports a wide color gamut.
    AUO does not indicate when it plans to start commercial shipments of its new OLED-type displays, but the fact that it has a foldable OLED screen indicates that demand for such monitors is going to grow. It is noteworthy that AUO has decided to adopt ink jet printing technology that promises to lower production costs and improve yields of OLED. Large makers of OLED screens yet have to adopt printed OLED technology, but Japan OLED has apparently, and AUO believes that it is mature enough.

    Anandtech: Fast & Furious: The Alienware 27 (AW2720HF) 240 Hz IPS Monitor with FreeSy

    Dell has announced its Alienware 27 gaming display that is based on a 'Fast IPS' panel that brings together a 240 Hz refresh rate, rich colors, and wide viewing angles. Aimed at hardcore and esports gamers, the model AW2720HF also supports AMD’s FreeSync variable refresh rate technology.
    Displays with a 240 Hz maximum refresh rate have been around for years, yet all of them were based on TN panels with all their peculiarities like 170°/160° viewing angles and mediocre reproduction of colors. By comparison, IPS panels have offered 178°/178° viewing angles and superior colors, yet could not hit truly high refresh rates. This year AU Optronics introduced its ‘Fast IPS’ panels featuring a 240 Hz refresh rate as well as a Full-HD resolution, bringing qualities of IPS displays to hardcore and professional gamers.
    The Alienware 27 (AW2720HF) monitor relies on one of such Fast IPS panels offering a 1920x1080 resolution, 350 nits brightness, a 1000:1 contrast ratio, 178°/178° viewing angles, a 1 ms GtG response time (with overdrive in extreme mode), and a variable refresh rate of up to 240 Hz. The 27-inch LCD can display 16.78 million of colors and can reproduce 99% of the sRGB color space. In order to ensure consistent performance even when ambient lighting is too bright, the monitor has an antiglare coating with 3H hardness.
    For connectivity, the Alienware 27 has one DisplayPort 1.2a connector, two HDMI 2.0 inputs, one quad-port USB 3.1 Gen 1 hub, one headpone jack, and one line-out jack. The stand of the display can adjust height, tilt, swivel, and pivot. Speaking of the stand, it is noteworthy that the AW2720HF, according to Alienware, features its latest Legend futuristic design style that makes the monitor look like an indispensable part of an intergalactic spaceship. Of course, the monitor has customizable RGB LEDs for personalization.
    As we are talking about a gaming display, it is not surprising that the Alienware 27 naturally supports on-screen features like an FPS counter, timer, customizable frame modes, user customization, and other things that one comes to expect from a product of this pedigree.

    Anandtech: AMD Bulldozer 'Core' Lawsuit: AMD Settles for $12.1m, Payouts for Some

    AMD this month has agreed to pay compensation that totals $12.1 million to users who purchased FX-8000/9000 CPUs via its website or in the state of California. The case comes down to AMD advertising these processors as having 8 cores, and the claim that a shared FPU unit within a 'dual core' module does not constitute an actual core of performance similar to a separate core/FPU unit. Users who qualify for the compensation are estimated to recieve in the region on $35, depending on the exact uptake, and no one person can claim more than $7500.
    AMD’s Bulldozer microarchitecture used 'dual-core modules' containing two independent ALUs and a shared FPU. AMD believed that such design allowed it to call its FX-8000 and FX-9000 series processors as the industry’s first eight-core desktop CPUs, yet the latter were quite often behind their quad-core rivals from Intel in terms of performance. As a result, a group of people from California filed a class action suit that accused AMD of false advertising back in 2015.
    In early 2019, the Northern District Court of California sided with the plaintiffs and ruled that AMD’s FX-8120, FX-8150, FX-8320, FX-8350, FX-8370, FX-9370, and FX-9590 processors were incorrectly advertised as having eight cores. On August 23, the court published the class action settlement agreement under which AMD agreed to pay plaintiffs and the settlement class a compensation.
    Under the terms of the deal, AMD has to create a $12.1 million settlement fund that will cover compensations to the end users, attorney fees, and settlement administration fees. The Class Counsel agreed to limit its petition for attorneys’ fees and reimbursement of expenses to no more than 30% of the fund, or $3.630 million, whereas the costs of settlement administration will be between $350,000 and $700,000. As a result, the pot to share between the actual purchasers of AMD’s select FX processors will be between $7.77 million and $8.12 million.
    Purchasers entitled for up to $7500 total, have a confirmed purchase(s), and to have purched one of the processors while living in California or from AMD's website. It is noteworthy that people who bought AMD’s FX-8000E series CPUs with reduced power consumption are not eligible to get a reimbursement, and neither are people who purchased AMD’s six-core and quad-core FX-6000 and FX-4000 products.
    It is hard to estimate how much money will each owner of AMD’s FX-8120, FX-8150, FX-8320, FX-8350, FX-8370, FX-9370, and FX-9590 processors will get, but considering the fact the settlement is limited to select CPUs and residents of California and those from AMD.com, actual sums may be quite sizeable. Should the actual value per unit be over $300, this will be subject to court approval.
    AMD and the Settlement Administrator are order to crease a website at www.AMDCPUSettlement.com that should include the ability to file claim forms online. At press time, the website was offline, but it should be up shortly. We are awaiting AMD's official press release on the matter.
    Update:
    AMD has given an official comment on the result:
    "AMD is pleased to have reached a settlement of this lawsuit. While we believe the allegations are without merit, we also believe that eliminating the distraction and settling the litigation is in our best interest."

    Samsung has started sales of one of the industry’s first curved monitors featuring a 240 Hz maximum refresh rate. Aimed at gamers and esports professionals 'looking for maximum performance', the CRG5 supports NVIDIA’s G-Sync variable refresh rate technology as well as multiple features designed specifically for this target audience.
    The Samsung 27-inch CRG5 display is based on a curved VA panel featuring a 1920×1080 resolution, 300 nits brightness, a 3000:1 contrast ratio, a 4 ms response time, a 240 Hz maximum refresh rate, and a 1500R curvature. The LCD can display 16.7 million of colors and can reproduce 72% of the NTSC 1976 color gamut, which is in line with monitors developed primarily for hardcore gamers and esports enthusiasts.
    Three key selling features of the CRG5 are curvature, support for NVIDIA’s G-Sync variable refresh rate technology, and a 240 Hz maximum refresh rate, a combination not available previosly. Meanwhile, since the monitor is designed for a very special target audience seeking for extreme performance and immersion, it also supports low input lag mode (which bypasses processing by the monitor’s internal scaler), genre-specific game modes, black equalizer mode that makes ultra dark parts of the scenes look brighter, as well as an on-screen crosshair.
    When it comes to connectivity, the CRG5 LCD is equipped with one DisplayPort 1.2 input, two HDMI 2.0 ports, a USB connector for firmware upgrades, and a 3.5-mm audio jack. Meanwhile, the display has a stand that can adjust tilt as well as VESA 75x75 mounting holes.
