A new processor line-up from Nvidia Corp hopes to spawn a new class of fast, small devices with long battery life that can surf the full Internet, play high-end games and display high-definition video. The Tegra 600 and Tegra 650 processors are being called "computers on a chip" for portable visual devices. The chips will give new competition for No. 1 chipmaker Intel corp.The Tegra chips may also include the previously announced application processor APX2500 used in smartphones and handsets....

SAN FRANCISCO -- Intel Corp. said on Tuesday it is combining its desktop and notebook microprocessor architectures, as the world's largest chipmaker focuses on boosting the power efficiency of its chips. The move is the latest as Intel shifts its focus from making chips that run at ever higher clock speeds, which are now measured in gigahertz, to making chips that have a higher performance per watt. Such performance is key for small, mobile devices as well as computers in data centers eager...

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) -- For decades, computer performance has been driven largely by the increasing numbers of ever-smaller transistors squeezed into the machines' silicon brains. With each generation, speeds jumped and prices dropped. Though the tiny switches built in silicon are the heart of the digital revolution, they can't shrink forever. And in recent years, chip companies have struggled to keep a lid on power and heat - the result of some transistor components getting as thin as a...
