Last week Intel launched its 30.0.100.9684 graphics driver, the first official non-beta release for Microsoft's upcoming Windows 11 operating system. Intel's early efforts beat out both NVIDIA and AMD when offering product-quality drivers for current-generation graphics hardware. However, buried within the release notes for the recent driver Read more...
Intel has vowed to aggressively expand its chip manufacturing business, and a huge part of that effort could apparently include buying GlobalFoundries, which was spun off of AMD over a decade ago. It's said Intel is willing to pay around $30 billion if a deal can be hammered out. That would rank as Intel's biggest... Read more...
It's no secret that the United States has lost its dominant position as a hotbed for semiconductor production. The U.S. long ceded the crown to other countries like Taiwan, home to [contract] chip manufacturing giant TSMC. However, U.S. lawmakers finally realize that providing a competitive environment for domestic... Read more...
Some of the world's leading chip makers have warned that the global shortage of silicon could linger into next year and perhaps even beyond, as unprecedented demand and disruptions in production from the pandemic (and other factors) have put the industry in a unique situation. Despite the warnings, at least one... Read more...
We have known since last year that Intel's upcoming Alder Lake-S desktop processors will not only introduce a heterogeneous design similar in concept to Arm's. big.LITTLE approach, but also a new socket. Intel documents revealed early on that Alder Lake-S would leverage an LGA 1700 socket. Otherwise known as Socket V... Read more...
It was just earlier this month that IBM announced an incredible manufacturing breakthrough with its 2-nm manufacturing process that crammed 50 billion transistors into the size of a fingernail. While that's still a future-looking technology that hasn't made it into mass production (and thereby not a solution for our... Read more...
It times of crisis, it is often said that things will get worse before they get better. That does not always hold true, but it sure seems to apply to the global chip shortage, which may not see a full recovery for years. While there is light way at the end of the tunnel, lead times on chip orders have been increasing... Read more...
Hey, good news everyonethe GPU shortage is over! Just kidding, you still can't find a graphics card in stock (not from a first-party seller at a fair price, that is). I know, I know, what an insensitive intro, my apologies. However, there is actually some good news, related to GPUs. Ethereum is aiming to become much... Read more...
Gigabyte yesterday jumped the gun when it comes to its announcement of Lite Hash Rate (LHR) GeForce RTX 3060 graphics cards. While NVIDIAs beta 466.24 driver released late last month confirmed that new GPU revisions were on the way, there was no mention of the LHR terminology at that time. Today, however, NVIDIA...

We know from a recent Twitter post by Intel's Pete Brubaker that it won't be too terribly long before Intel's Xe-HPG DG2 gaming GPU is releasedto use his words, it's "right around the corner." Following up on that, an interesting leak emerged today, highlighting a mix of DG2 GPUs for both mobile and desktop, with up... Read more...
All eyes are on Intel to see what it can accomplish in the discrete GPU space, and specifically whether or not it can shake things up in a meaningful way with products that truly compete with the latest and greatest graphics cards from AMD and NVIDIA. Time will tell, of course. In the meantime, the leak and rumor... Read more...
At some point, Intel is going to throw its hat into the discrete gaming graphics card ring with products based on its next-gen Xe-HPG GPU. Exactly when and what specific products will be offered are questions that will be answered in time, no matter how impatient we are to learn more. As we wait, a new leak suggests... Read more...
Roughly a month ago, we got the somewhat surprising news that Bob Swan would be stepping down from his post as Intel CEO. We saysomewhatbecause Intel has not exactly been adhering closely to its processor roadmap, and been faced with delays in getting its volume 10nm production on track, while its future 7nm process...

A little over three years ago, Intel lured AMD's former Radeon Technologies Group (RTG) boss Raja Koduri to come over and lead its own efforts in graphics, at which time Intel also announced it intended to once again throw its hat into the discrete GPU ring, something it had not attempted since Larrabee. Building... Read more...
As we reported earlier this morning,Intel had a banner year in 2020. Although the company's fourth quarter earnings were down slightly by 1 percent year-over-year, it still outperformed expectations. Even better, revenue for the full year was $77.9 billion, which represents an 8 percent YoY gain. This strong... Read more...
Intel's announcement that former CTO Pat Gelsinger is returning to replace Bob Swan as chief executive offer rocked the tech industry last week, but the biggest seismic waves might be yet to come. In fact, his hiring is already creating aftershocks. Following the announcement, the chief architect of Intel's Nehalem... Read more...
Earlier this month at CES 2021, Intel officially confirmed that its12thgeneration Alder LakeCPU architecture will launch during the latter half of 2021. Intel says that Alder Lake will be the "most power-scalable system-on-chip ever produced, and will be manufactured using the company's advanced 10nm SuperFin... Read more...
Earlier this week, Intel made the shock announcement that its current CEO of over two years -- Bob Swan -- would be making a relatively speedy exit. In his place, the company will see thereturn of Pat Gelsinger, who began his career at Intel and remained with the company for three decades. After stints at EMC and... Read more...
