We learned earlier this month that Intel had purchased its very own ARM license and will soon be manufacturing ARM-based processors for third-parties. Intel, which has remarkable chip fabrication capabilities, however, won’t be producing ARM chips of its own design. This newest development already has analysts stirring the pot when it comes to the next wave of iPhone rumors. With the iPhone 7 less than a month away, analysts are already looking further into the future towards the hypothetical iPhone 8. Analysts speaking with the Nikkei Asian Review indicate that Intel has already approached Apple... Read more...
Intel has been relatively quiet on the solid state drive (SSD) front lately, though the company has likely been devoting a lot time and resources to its upcoming 3D XPoint storage architecture. However today, the company has unleashed a flood of new SSD products that cover a broad spectrum of usage scenarios. All of the new SSD products make use of 3D NAND, while the cheapest of them can be had for less than $100. First up is the SSD 600p Series, which is offered in four capacities ranging from 128GB on up to 1TB, and is targeted at consumer desktops and notebooks. The SSDs are available in the... Read more...
AMD President And CEO Dr. Lisa Su AMD has been slowly releasing information about its next-generation Zen processor core architecture since mid-last year. Complete specifications haven’t been officially released, but we do know that initial Zen-based processors will be manufactured using a 14nm FinFET process, and that a Zen core-based family of products will eventually scale all the way from mobile devices on up to big-iron, enterprise servers. News of a 32-core / 64-thread Zen-based server processor codenamed “Naples” broke a few months back, and AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su recently showed off an... Read more...
Today’s opening keynote at the Intel Developers Forum focused on a number of forward-looking AI, deep learning, connectivity and networking technologies, like 5G and Silicon Photonics. But late in the address, Intel’s Vice President and General Manager of its Data Center Group (DCG), Diane Bryant, quickly dropped a few details regarding the company’s next-generation Xeon Phi processor, codenamed Knights Mill.Knights Mill is designed for high-performance machine learning and artificial intelligence workloads, and is currently slated for release sometime in 2017. According to Bryant, Knights Mill... Read more...
Intel's Diane Bryant Holds Up New Silicon Photonics Module At IDF Day 2 KeynoteThe Vice President and General Manager of Intel's Data Center Group (DCG), Diane Bryant, took to the stage at IDF 2016 in San Francisco this morning to showcase various technologies that the company has developed to enable the next-generation data center, which will be a vital part of tomorrow's 5G networks. With massive amounts of data being created, stored and accessed from millions of end points -- from the IoT to machine learning and machine vision-enabled devices -- the disaggregated data center of tomorrow will...

If you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em. Intel was an ARM license holder back in the early days of the personal digital assistant (PDA), and found its StrongARM and XScale chips in devices like the HP Compaq iPaq 5450 and other products of that ilk. But Intel jettisoned its ARM division in 2006 to focus on x86 processors, only to see a huge surge in ARM processor deployments with the rise of smartphones a few short years later. Intel tried to counter with its own low-powered, x86-based smartphones SoCs, but its efforts proved futile. Now, Intel is deciding to wade back in to the ARM waters as an ARM licensee....

Intel, the world's largest producer of semiconductors, has signed a definitive agreement to acquire Nervana Systems, a deep learning startup founded in 2014 and headquartered in San Diego, California. The move buy the startup is in recognition of the growing role artificial intelligence will play in everyday technologies. "While artificial intelligence is often equated with great science fiction, it isn’t relegated to novels and movies. AI is all around us, from the commonplace (talk-to-text, photo tagging, fraud detection) to the cutting edge (precision medicine, injury prediction, autonomous... Read more...
Intel has issued a voluntary but important safety recall on all Basis Peak watches. It issued the recall after fielding reports of the handy accessory overheating, which Intel says can result in burns or blisters on the skin. Intel says it's important that owners of any Basis Peak watch stop using it immediately and return it for a full refund. The overheating issue came to light in mid-June. At the time, Intel hoped it could fix the problem with a software update, but it wasn't able to make the issue go away without completely compromising the user experience. Rather than continue down that road,... Read more...
Intel shook things up when it announced that Kaby Lake would sit in between Skylake and Cannonlake, thus disrupting its tick-tock release cadence with a third generation processor family based on a 14nm manufacturing process. Now it appears that a fourth generation family of 14nm CPUs is on the roadmap, that being Coffee Lake, which will be behind Intel's first six-core processor for mainstream users. If you want to own a six-core CPU from Intel right now, your best bet is to save up your funds and build a system around Broadwell-E or Haswell-E, both of which are aimed at enthusiasts. Intel hasn't... Read more...
Apparently this is the season of leaked slides, at least for Intel, which seems to having trouble keeping inside information under wraps. Earlier today we told you about some upcoming NUC models based on Kaby Lake and Apollo Lake, and now a new batch of internal slides reveals some interesting things about Intel's forthcoming Skylake-X and Kaby Lake-X processors, both slated for release in the third quarter of 2017.This isn't the first we've heard of Skylake-X and Kaby Lake-X, which are aimed at enthusiasts but no longer bearing the "E" extension. What's new and interesting about these high-end... Read more...
Intel continues to crank out new Next Unit of Computing (NUC) models and has no plans of slowing down. Just the opposite, the Santa Clara chip maker is readying a new generation of its small form factor (SFF) PCs based on its unreleased Kaby Lake and Apollo Lake processors, along with modern amenities like USB-C connectivity.There's a lot of nomenclature being thrown around with these NUCs so let's take a moment clarify some things. Kaby Lake is Intel's next generation processor architecture, one that disrupts (perhaps permanently) Intel's "tick-tock" release cadence. With Intel having to push... Read more...
Acer has a new laptop line for small and medium sized business professionals looking for a thin and light solution that blends style with modern technology. It's the new TravelMate X3 series, the first of which is the TravelMate X349 bound in an brushed aluminum chassis that measures less 0.7 inches thin and weighs just 3.3 pounds. Underneath the hood you'll find Intel's 6th Generation Core processor technology based on Skylake powering the 14-inch Full HD 1080p (1920x1080) In-Plane Switching (IPS) display. It also boasts up to 8GB of DDR4 memory and up to 512GB of solid state drive storage, along... Read more...
In what can be considered another legal setback for Oracle, a jury has ordered the firm to pay Hewlett-Packard Enterprise (HPE) $3 billion in damages for its decision to stop developing database software for HP's Itanium-based servers in 2011. Oracle plans to appeal the verdict, but for now it's on the hook for a significant sum over a contract dispute. What this all boils down to is whether or not Oracle had a legal obligation to continue supporting Itanium after Intel indicated that its end of life was near as it began focusing more on its x86 microprocessors. Oracle feels strongly that it had... Read more...
Intel, the world's largest chipmaker, is reportedly mulling a sale of its cyber security business, depending on how much it's worth on the open market. The Santa Clara outfit would like to recoup the nearly $7.7 billion it paid for McAfee in 2010. Now known as Intel Security, it could be an enticing option for private equity investors looking to buy a stake in the fast growing cyber security market.With high profile security breaches on the rise, corporate entities are looking for ways to keep their businesses safe from online threats. That's created a hot market for security firms. As the Financial... Read more...
