Intel's next-generation CPU, codenamed Haswell, was the major star of IDF. One aspect of the chip we haven't talked about at length, however, is its emphasis on reduced power consumption. When Intel announced that its Ivy Bridge mobile products would target 17W for mainstream systems, it made headlines. Pushing Haswell down to 10W is an even... Read more...
Intel recently unveiled a special warranty plan that allows users a one-time replacement for a processor they inadvertently cook while overclocking, but it cost a (relatively) small fee--between $20-35, depending on your particular CPU. Gigabyte and CyberpowerPC have partnered to offer Intel’s plan, called the... Read more...
Intel continues to flog the ultrabook concept for all its worth, but DigiTimes reports that thus far, sales aren't in line with what OEMs expected. Shipments from Acer and Asus are currently expected to reach 100,000 units each by the end of the year, far short of the initial target of 200-300K units apiece. Part of... Read more...

Promise Technology recently launched the first Thunderbolt-compatible devices; the company's Pegasus RAID R4 and R6 storage solutions can now be ordered from the Apple Store.

We have discussed Intel’s Light Peak technology on a number of occasions over the last few years.

Intel released its quarterly earnings last night, revealing yet another record-breaking quarter. This is the third time in four quarters that the company has managed to break one record or another; the results imply that the IT industry continues to recover slowly.

We suppose even the best laid plans can fall apart, and it seems that one of Intel's most promising endeavors is no longer active as of today. In a new post by the company's own Bill Kircos, he addresses Intel's stance on graphics-related programs, giving vague updates to a broad variety of topics. But one area wasn't vague at all. When speaking... Read more...
A little over two years ago, Intel formally unveiled the low-power Atom processor and its related chipset and platform technologies. At the time, Intel's vision for Atom had the diminutive CPU powering a diverse line-up of mobile internet devices, or MIDs, web-connected tablets, portable media players, and handheld gaming devices. Suffice... Read more...

Back when Intel reported its third quarter results for 2009, analysts expressed some concern that the company's strong numbers might not be fully supported by later market analysis. Research firm IDC has recently released data indicating that such concerns were unnecessarysales in Q3 were up dramatically compared to earlier this year and... Read more...
Last week, we predicted that Intel's strong product mix and fabulous Q3 results could have negatively impacted AMD's own numbers at a time when the company is struggling to return to profitability. While AMD has yet to return to the black, the company's third quarter results are very good. Company executives weren't... Read more...
Wait, a second--blue USB ports? What could that possibly mean? If our Chinese translation skills are any good, it means USB 3.0, which definitely means happiness. We've known that USB 2.0 was growing a bit long in the tooth, and we've seen a few demonstrations overseas showcasing the abilities of early USB 3.0 connections, but this marks the... Read more...
It's no huge secret that AMD hasn't been shattering sales records or blowing away Wall Street pundits of late.
