Image popupMobile gaming has become a bit of a misnomer as of late. You either have to sacrifice performance and settle for mostly casual gaming (tablet PCs) or give up a bit of portability to accommodate high-end hardware (gaming laptops and desktop replacements). Looking to cut down on the amount of compromises a... Read more...
Intel is making a play for a bigger chunk of the mobile market, and although ARM says that it’s a generation ahead of Intel’s Atom (on smartphones, at least), Intel showed off its 22nm Silvermont microarchitecture and new Atom (Bay Trail) tablet platform and demonstrated a substantial generational...

The big news of the day, based on a leaked Intel roadmap, is that Broadwell won't launch in 2014. Instead, we'll see a Haswell refresh with unknown performance characteristics (slightly higher clocks are the best bet) and, late in the year, a "Haswell-E" server part on the X99 chipset. Ivy Bridge-E, the six-core... Read more...
Boutique system builder Maingear is banking on there being an audience outside of productivity junkies who can appreciate a high-powered 14-inch laptop. Hence the launch of Maingear's Pulse 14 with not only Haswell inside, but gaming grade discrete graphics courtesy of NVIDIA. Make no mistake, this 14-inch notebook is for users who'd rather...

If Haswell's debut on the desktop has left you feeling a bit flat, the company's mobile efforts may be the pick-me-up you've been hoping for. If you step back and think about the entire CPU market, the last two years have been marked by tremendous shifts in consumer buying habits, as tablet sales skyrocketed and desktop/laptop sales have slumped....

While Intel is the king of the PC, competitor ARM is arguably the king of mobile, and the latter is apparently further securing its crown with a new optimized IP solution that’s designed for use in midrange mobile devices. ARM executives went so far as to tell TechHive that their offerings are a generation ahead... Read more...
It’s Haswell time in a major way, and the latest custom PC builder to update its entire line with 4th-generation Intel Core (Haswell) processors is MAINGEAR. The company announced that its SHIFT, F131, Potenza, and Vybe desktops in addition to its Nomad 15 and Nomad 17 gaming notebooks will all sport the new... Read more...
Today is outgoing Intel CEO Paul Otellini’s last day at the company, and although he’s left the company better off than when he found it, in an interview with The Atlantic he let slip one regret he had from his tenure--Intel could have made the chips for the iPhone. Apparently, Apple approached Intel about making chips for the... Read more...
For the past five years -- and it'll have been nearly six years by the time these new Atom CPUs come to market -- Intel has focused on improving power consumption, improving power consumption, and improving power consumption. Dual-core variants appeared on the desktop in fairly short order, and clock speed nudges have only bumped performance... Read more...
Good new for Intel fans, the wait for Haswell is almost over. While Intel has yet to officially announce a specific launch date for its fourth generation Core processor line, it's widely expected Haswell will peek its head into retail in June after the Computex convention in Taipei, which runs from June 4 to 8, 2013. Even better news, it doesn't... Read more...
Lest anyone question Intel's commitment to its Ultrabook platform, the Santa Clara chip maker today announced an enthusiast-grade mSATA solid state drive (SSD) with a 6Gbps interface. The new Intel SSD 525 Series measures just 3.7mm x 50.8mm x 29.85mm and weighs a mere 10 grams, but is super quick on the draw with... Read more...
Like many memory makers, Mushkin is heavily focused on solid state drives (SSDs) these days, having previously launched its enterprise-friendly ProSpec SSD family at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas last week. Without skipping a beat, Mushkin today announced the U.S. availability of its capacious 480GB Atlas mSATA SSD. It's... Read more...
We spent some time with representatives from Intel at the Consumer Electronics show and saw a couple of interesting demos in action. In addition to announcing that 7W Ivy Bridge-based processors are coming down the pipeline, Intel was touting the low power characteristics and efficiency of its current Clover... Read more...
A few months ago, we detailed Intel's low-power plans with Haswell and how the company was planning to push mainstream x86 processors into much lower TDPs than it had previously discussed. Santa Clara still intends to deliver Haswell parts at 10W or below, but it's accelerated the delivery of sub-10W parts even... Read more...
Intel’s upcoming fourth-generation Core-i7 CPUs (codenamed Haswell) promise to be game-changers, and we’ve reported on some of the specifications of its accompanying Z87 chipset, as well. Apparently, VR-Zone has gotten its hands on leaked details of the impending processor line, including the targeted launch date of April 2013.... Read more...
If you’ve been losing sleep over rumors that Intel was planning to do away with socketed CPUs and move to soldered-in-place ball grid array chips, rest easy; the company told Maximum PC that it would stick with LGA sockets for the foreseeable future. Although noting that Intel can’t really comment on its long-term roadmap for processors,... Read more...
The "Intel Next Unit of Computing" (NUC), as it's appropriately called, is an ultra-compact desktop system that's small enough to fit in the palm of your hand, while packing a performance punch that belies its diminutive stature. Power users looking to game on their high-resolution 30-inch monitors need not apply, but there are plenty of markets... Read more...
Intel President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Paul Otellini, is calling it quits, though he isn't stepping down from the world's largest chip maker immediately. Instead, he'll work through the holiday season and into the second quarter of 2013 before retiring in May, Intel announced today. "Paul Otellini has been a very strong leader,... Read more...
Last month, Intel brought us out to the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) in Austin to brief us on its latest and greatest foray into high-performance computing (HPC) and exascale level processing performance. For Intel, years of heady talk about parallelism and exascale computing have finally come to fruition. Intel is bringing to market... Read more...
It's not unusual for a company's profits to come up short of analyst expectations, but what's interesting in Acer's case is fact that its performance in the third quarter of 2012 versus what the market experts were anticipating ended up being miles apart. Acer's net income in Q3 reached NT$68 million (about US$2.3 million), the second largest... Read more...
It's been a nice, long ride for the conventional PCI (Peripheral Component Interconnect) slot, but with the introduction of Intel's game-changing Haswell platform, the Santa Clara chip maker is reportedly doing away with support for the legacy ports. If you've been holding onto an earlier model Sound Blaster card or... Read more...
