In the hunt for the connected wrist, Tag Heuer has set early autumn for the introduction of their first product offering in the smartwatch space, an Android Wear device whose bow will serve to make the company the biggest Swiss entrant into the burgeoning market. The Tag Heuer smartwatch will last approximately 40 hours on a single charge, and will thus perform over twice as long the new big player in the space, the Apple Watch, this according to Jean-Claude Biver, the head of watchmaking activity for LVMH Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton SE (owner of the Tag Heuer brand). In an interview, Biver professed... Read more...
Intel gathered a number of software developer and hardware manufacturing partners together this week in New York to showcase the latest technologies and innovations that Intel's RealSense 3D camera technology can enable. From new interactive gaming experiences to collaboration, 3D mapping and gesture control, the technology holds promise that could someday reinvent how we interact with PCs. The camera technology itself integrates a depth sensor and a full color 1080p HD camera together with standard technologies like dual array mics, but with an SDK, processing engine and 3rd party software that...

CyberPower has been in overdrive this Spring, pumping out the Syber Vapor, which we reviewed earlier this month, and now the Trinity, a system that puts a new spin on the traditional gaming PC design. It’s one of the most eye-catching computers we’ve seen in a long time, and it’s loaded with high-end gaming hardware.The Trinity is made up of three blades, each of which contains components. One blade, dubbed the “CPU Blade,” houses a mini ITX motherboard and as much as 16GB of memory. The “Performance Blade” handles graphics (including full-size graphics cards) and has room for SSDs. The “Storage... Read more...
We first got an official look at the Intel Compute Stick earlier this year, at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. In one of those “But wait! There’s more!” kind of moments common at trade shows, one of the good folks at Intel that was previously showing off a few upcoming NUC systems pulled a tiny device from his shirt pocket and revealed the diminutive Compute Stick. If you’re unfamiliar with the Intel Compute Stick, it’s essentially a fully-functional, low-power, Atom-based system—with memory, storage, and an OS--crammed into a form factor not much...

On account of the fact that Intel's 5th-gen Core processors still haven't hit the desktop, it's quite something to realize that Skylake, the 6th-gen, is right around the corner. Marco talked a bit about Broadwell's desktop counterpart early last month, and overall, it's worth looking forward to. Does that mean you'll want to upgrade from Haswell? Almost certainly not. While it's undoubtedly going to offer some nice benefits over Haswell, with good help from its shrink to 14nm, Skylake is really going to be the "big one". For enthusiasts, it's going to be Skylake-S that will garner the most attention.... Read more...
The cyberwar and war of words between the United States and China is never-ending. When we last visited the tense relationship between the U.S. and China, President Barack Obama was crying foul over draft anti-terrorism legislation that would negatively affect American companies conducting business in China. More to the point, Obama took direct issue with language in the bill that would require American companies operating within China to deliver encryption keys to the Chinese government, install security backdoors, and keep all user data on Chinese soil. "Those kinds of restrictive practices I... Read more...
Intel's much-anticipated 'Compute Stick' has just hit e-tail, with the most notable e-tailer to stock it right now being Amazon. Right now, there's a 32GB version being sold that packs in an inactive Windows 8.1 installation as well as Android 4.4, and it's priced at $108.83. Amazon lists these specs: Intel Atom Z3735F quad-core, 32GB storage, 2GB RAM, Bluetooth 4.0, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, HDMI, dual microUSB ports, one USB 2.0 port, and a microSD card slot. There's also a power button in case you don't want the device to be running all the time. As an Android device, the Compute Stick would have a... Read more...

Today, Intel is taking the wraps off new NVMe PCI Express Solid State Drives, which are the first products with these high speed interfaces that the company has launched specifically for the enthusiast computing and workstation crowds. Historically, Intel's PCI Express-based offerings, like the SSD DC P3700 Series, have been squarely targeted for datacenter or enterprise applications, with price tags to match. However, today Intel is throwing performance enthusiasts another bone with the launch of the Intel SSD 750 series. We've historically been big on PCI Express SSDs here, because they get around...

There's an old adage that says you have to spend money to make money, and if that's truly the case, AMD better think long and hard about its investments, or lack thereof. According to a Chinese-language report, the Sunnyvale chip designer's quarterly R&D spending has declined since 2012 and is at the lowest level since 2004. Prior to that, AMD's spending was flat through 2011 before dipping down to $238 million, which is how much it spent on R&D last quarter. Meanwhile, rival NVIDIA has switched places with AMD over the past several years and has increased R&D spending... Read more...
Intel is reportedly attempting to negotiate a deal to acquire Altera, an American company that designs and manufacturers FPGAs, or field-programmable gate arrays. The figure that's out there is $10 billion, and if it happens, it would be Intel's largest acquisition ever. It would also help Intel expand its presence in other marketsAltera's chips are often found in cellphone towers, along with military and industrial applications. These are all areas where Intel could make a ton of money, which also buys the company insurance against a changing landscape that's see the personal computer market lose... Read more...
Depending on the "3D" we're talking about, it could either be amazing, or "meh". 3D gaming? Awesome. 3D movies? Meh. 3D memory? Incredible. Why? Because with 3D stacked memory technology instantly gives a hearty boost to both density and bandwidth. There's a reason both AMD and NVIDIA are going to be making use of 3D memory in their respective future graphics cards. To help put things into immediate perspective, take a look at the "gumstick" SSD in the shot above (the long card). Because of their 3D memory, Micron and Intel say that hitting 3.5TB on drives of this size will be possible. Meanwhile,... Read more...
Following 33 fruitful years with one of the world's largest semiconductor companies, Shmuel (Mooly) Eden has decided to call it quits at Intel. As so many of these high-ranking departures go, Eden says that he wants to seek out fresh challenges -- whether or not that means he'll wind up somewhere else in a management role, we'll just have to wait and see. During his tenure at Intel, Eden held a number of important positions, with the most notable being Senior Vice President. He was also the General Manager for Perceptual Computing, and President of Intel Israel. Between 1999 and 2003, he was also... Read more...
Acer’s 15.6-inch Chromebook 910 was introduced in January and is already a competent performer. The Chromebook 910 has been available with Broadwell-based Intel Celeron and Core i3 processors and can be configured with a Full HD (1920x1080) IPS display (base systems come saddled with a 1366x768 display). The Chromebook C910 and Acer’s wide selection of other Chrome OS-based notebooks has allowed it to capture roughly 40 percent of the Chromebook market according to Gartner. Today, Acer is ramping up the Chromebook C910’s performance with the announcement of a new processor option: a fifth Generation... Read more...
