Intel is readying its 10 nanometer (nm) Cannonlake processor architecture for release later this year and has begun extolling the virtues of its advanced manufacturing process technology as well. Intel will be battling it out with major competitors like Samsung at 10nm. Qualcomm, for example, is already shipping Snapdragon 835 processors using Samsung’s 10nm FinFET process tech and is encroaching on Intel’s turf with its 48-Core Centriq 2400 ARM server chip. But Intel believes it has the superior process technology and wants to set the record straight.However, if you ask Intel about how it... Read more...
Lenovo is pitching the emerging interest in virtual reality as a reason for developers to consider its new ThinkStation P320 workstations. The world's top PC maker (in terms of market share) used Develop3D Live as the launchpad for its new systems, which featured Intel Xeon and 7th generation Core i3/i5/i7 (Kaby Lake) processor options paired with NVIDIA Quadro graphics. Buyers can opt for a full-tower enclosure supporting up to a Quadro P4000 (Pascal) graphics card, or a small form factor (SFF) setup with up to two Quadro P1000 GPUs. Either setup can be configured with an Intel Xeon E3-1200 v6... Read more...
The rumor mill doesn't seem to rest for a single day lately. We learned yesterday that AMD will be releasing both 4GB and 8GB versions of its RX Vega graphics cards, and that it will also be releasing Vega for notebooks. Today we learn a little bit about Intel's next big thing: Kaby Lake X. Kaby Lake-X is going to represent the first chips available for Intel's upcoming X299 chipset for motherboard platforms, with Skylake-X chips with beefier specs to come later and ultimately supersede the current Broadwell-E chips. Thanks to SANDRA, the popular benchmarking tool from the folks at SiSoftware,... Read more...
If you had any previous concerns about the importance of artificial intelligence (AI) for the future advancement of technology, look at how the major players are jockeying for position. Earlier this month, Intel purchased machine vision company Mobileye to get its hands on 70 percent of the market for advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) in self-driving vehicles. Today, Intel announced that it is consolidating its AI efforts into a single group that reports directly to CEO Brian Krzanich. Leading the new Artificial Intelligence Products Group (AIPG) is Naveen Rao, who served as CEO of Nervana,... Read more...
When Intel and Micron jointly announced 3D Xpoint memory technology a couple of years back, the two companies made some bold claims. 3D Xpoint is being positioned as a revolutionary non-volatile memory tier that can offer orders of magnitude better performance and endurance than traditional NAND flash memory, with much higher density than DRAM. Our original coverage of the 3D Xpoint announcement is available here if you’d like a quick refresher.Today we have some news regarding the first product that Intel will ship leveraging 3D Xpoint memory technology, the brand new Intel Optane SSD DC...

When it comes to supporting legacy operating systems on new hardware, Microsoft has just unleashed the mother of all nuclear options. We already knew that Microsoft and its hardware partners — namely Intel and AMD — will not provide official support for the newest generation of PC processors on operating systems released prior to Windows 10. “To achieve the highest confidence in the performance of our AMD Ryzen desktop processors, AMD validated them across two different OS generations, Windows 7 and 10,” said AMD with respect to Ryzen support. “However, only support and drivers for Windows 10 will...

If you have been intrigued by the smartwatch revolution, but have yet to find a model to suit your higher-end tastes, TAG Heuer might just have you covered. The company's new Connected Modular 45 isn't just beautiful, it's modular (as the name suggests), allowing you to use it as a smartwatch one minute, and as a regular mechanical watch the next. TAG Heuer emphasizes the fact that this watch carries the Swiss Made label, ensuring that fans of higher-end timepieces take it a little more seriously. Still, it's a bold design, especially since its modularity could be seen to some as a gimmick. At... Read more...
Intel on Monday announced it has entered into a definitive agreement to purchase Mobileye, an Israeli technology company that develops vision-based advanced driver assistance systems providing warnings for collision prevention and mitigation. Combined with Intel's high performance computing solutions and expertise in connectivity, the Santa Clara chip maker envisions creating automated driving solutions from cloud to car. As part of the agreement, a subsidiary of Intel will purchase all issued and outstanding ordinary shares of Mobileye for $63.54 per share in cash. That represents an equity value... Read more...

With a little bit of luck, AMD will launch its Ryzen processor lineup on February 28 during its Capsaicin event at the 2017 Game Developers Conference (GDC) and put to rest all the rumors and speculation. Barring that, we'll have to wait until sometime early next month, as AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su previously indicated. Either way, the leaks will continue to flow in the meantime.

If you already own a fast 6th Generation Intel Core processor, otherwise known as Skylake, you might not be all that compelled to build a system around Intel's 7th Generation Kaby Lake line. Kaby Lake could be thought of as sort of a stop-gap solution, or midlife kicker product to fill the void created by Cannonlake's delay. This next generation Intel CPU architecture is expected to have a bigger impact on performance. How big, you ask? Intel claims Cannonlake will deliver more than a 15 percent performance boost over Kaby Lake.Update, 2/12/17 - We've updated this article with a slide from Intel's... Read more...
