Intel unleashed a slew of Skylake processors which are aimed at desktop and mobile users. As a result, we’ve seen numerous new products on a weekly sporting the new chips (especially on the mobile side). But what about the workstation market, where your scrappy little Core i5 or Core i7 just won’t cut the mustard? Well, Intel is introducing the new Xeon E3-1200 v5 processor family, which is geared towards the entry-level workstation market. Based on 14nm Skylake architecture, these chips feature up to 64GB of DDR3L or DDR4 ECC RAM, quad-cores, and support clock speed racing from 2GHz to 3.7GHz.... Read more...
Tech titans Intel and Microsoft are joining forces with the top three PC makers in the world -- that would be Lenovo, HP, and Dell, in that order (by market share) -- to blitz consumers with a new ad campaign that they collectively hope will enlighten the masses on what a Windows 10-based, Intel-powered system can do. The slogan they've chosen to run with is "PC Does What?!," which will kick off in full effect this coming Monday, October 19. In the meantime, this dream team ensemble has released a spattering of short advertisements, all available to watch to on YouTube courtesy of Intel. There's... Read more...
Late last week, market research firms IDC and Gartner handed down the latest PC shipment numbers for Q3 2015. It didn’t come as a surprise that IDC estimated PC shipments of 71 million, representing a 10.8 percent year-over-year (YoY) decline, while Gartner’s numbers were within the same ballpark with estimates of 73.7 million PCs sold, marking a 7.7 percent YoY decline. With that in mind, we can look at Intel’s third quarter financials with a bit of perspective. Intel’s third quarter revenue was $14.5 billion, while operating income and net income came in at $4.2 billion and $3.1 billion respectively.... Read more...
The real life (albeit controlled) hacking of a Jeep Cherokee has sent car manufacturers scrambling to ensure that their vehicles aren’t next in line to make those kinds of headlines. After all, sometimes bad press really is bad press: if you’re an automaker and your vehicle is getting torn apart publicly for being vulnerable to remote hacks, there is no upside. And where do you turn for help in situation like this? Intel wants to be your first stop.Citing data from research firm Gartner that predicts 150 million “connected” cars will be on the roads by 2020, Intel announce that it has established...

Researchers from Purdue University have developed a software tool for Android smartphones that purportedly slows down battery drain when handsets enter a  sleep state. With the software tool installed, the researchers claim that smartphone battery life can be extended by nearly 16 percent.Called "HUSH," the software solution was developed in response to what the researchers say is the first large-scale study of smartphone energy drain occurring from everyday use by consumers. The researchers conducted the study in collaboration with Intel and startup mobile company Mobile Enerlytics, who together... Read more...
Intel has chosen to end support for the Science Talent Search, an annual science and mathematics competition for American high school students. As part of the contest, each year 40 finalists are brought to Washington for meetings with government leaders and industry professionals.The competition began as an essay contest in 1942 with the topic "How science can help win the war." The male winner, known as "Top Boy," later developed an artificial kidney, while the "Top Girl" would go on to become an ophthalmologist. Since its inception, competitors have included eight Nobel Prize winners. Also among... Read more...
Intel is investing $50 million and "significant engineering resources" into quantum computing. It's part of a decade-long collaborative effort with QuTech, a quantum research institute belonging to Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) in the Netherlands and the Dutch Organization for Applied Research. Quantum computing has long been considered the Holy Grail of processing. It's completely different from today's transistor-based computing models and is capable of solving much more complex problems, including intricate simulations like large-scale financial analysis and drug development. Intel's... Read more...
It was just last month that we raved about the Asus ROG G751, which hammered our gaming benchmarks. Now, Asus is taking the wraps off its latest gaming laptop series, the ROG G752. Sporting Skylake processors and Nvidia graphics up to a GTX 980M, the three new ROG models look like they’ll be bringing even more muscle to your game. The systems should arrive in time for the holidays and start at $1,499. Asus showed off the ROG G752VL, G752VT and G752VY at IFA Berlin 2015. As it turns out, the hardware is generally the same in all three models, with the exception of the graphics. The systems have... Read more...
Intel really lit a fire under PC OEMs when it launched its Compute Stick earlier this year (you can read the Hot Hardware review right here). The tiny little mini PC fits in the palm of your hand and packs in a Bay Trail-based Atom Z3735F processor. We’ve seen the world’s largest PC OEM, Lenovo, come out with its own interpretation and now ASUS is bringing its own sleek offering to the table. The ASUS VivoStick does away with the hard edges and complete lack of style presented by the Intel Compute Stick and the Lenovo ideacenter Stick 300 by adopting a smooth shape and gentle curves. If the Intel... Read more...
When it comes to Intel’s Skylake processors, we’ve already got you covered things on the desktop side with a review of the Intel Core i7-6700K and the Z170 chipset. We followed that up with an in-depth look at Skylake’s Gen9 graphics architecture. Now Intel is following up on its Skylake bonanza by opening the floodgates on at least two dozen SKUs mostly covering the mobile sector. You’ll find detailed specs for all, and even lot pricing for some. When it comes to Skylake, Intel is divvying up the range into four distinct series. There’s the Y-Series, which is dedicated to 2-in-1 convertibles,... Read more...
Lenovo is beefing up its reliable ThinkPad E Series notebooks with a late summer/early fall refresh. The ThinkPad E Series is aimed at the bread and butter of the business notebook sector and is available in both 14-inch and 15.6-inch form-factors. This time around, Lenovo has four base configurations for the E-Series, with the E460 (14-inch) and E560 (15.6-inch) models both featuring Intel power. Base configurations start with a Celeron 3855U processor, but businesses that have enough coin can spring for a speedy Core i7 6500U processor. There are also numerous graphics options to appease every... Read more...
If you were planning a new PC build within the past several months, the phrase you might have heard over and over again was "wait for Skylake." Well, Skylake is here, and the new architecture comprises Intel's 6th generation Core line of CPUs. If you haven't done so already, be sure to check out our review of Intel's Core i7-6700K processor and Z170 chipset. Straight to the point, the Core i7-6700K is Intel's fastest quad-core desktop processor to date. However, one thing we didn't go too in-depth with is the integrated graphics, and that's because Intel kept a tight lid on the underlying... Read more...
In case you haven't been following the news surrounding Intel's Skylake launch, be advised that the chip maker is not bundling a cooling solution with its recently announced Core i7-6700K and Core i5-6600K processors, both of which are unlocked parts. However, Intel will sell a retail heatsink and fan combination separately, and it looks to be a rather decent one. We can sense your skepticism, and truth be told, we don't blame you. It's not as though Intel's previous stock cooling solutions have been anything to get excited over -- while sufficient, Intel's bundled coolers typically fall way behind... Read more...
When you think about what constitutes a "mobile workstation," several things come to mind. Things like ISV certification, long battery life, professional graphics (NVIDIA Quadro or AMD FirePro), and sometimes a rugged design. But what about the processor? Intel's Xeon chips have been powering workstations for a long time, and for the first time, Intel will offer Xeon processor options for laptops. These CPUs will be part of the Xeon E3-1500M v5 family based on Intel's recently launched 14nm Skylake architecture. They'll deliver high precision computing horsepower in notebook form factors and sport... Read more...
