Qualcomm and Apple have been battling it out in court for well over a year with regards to licensing agreements and patent infringement. The pair has waged a war of words in public over the disagreements, and now Qualcomm is letting real world results speak for themselves with regards to the performance of its chips... Read more...
Spectre and Meltdown have been the source of major headaches for the industry at large, and in particular Intel, which scurried to release firmware updates to mitigate the side-channel attacks. While now mostly in the rear view mirror, security researchers have discovered another side-channel vulnerability, which is... Read more...
The HEDT war between Intel and AMD really kicked off last year as the former introduced itsCore-Xfamily (with up to 18 cores) and the latter debutedRyzen Threadripper(with up to 16 cores). This year, the core counts are set to jump again with AMD announcing the mind-blowing 32-core/64-thread Ryzen Threadripper... Read more...
Yesterday, AMD wastrolling Intelby offering contest winners of itsCore i7-8086KLimited Edition a chance to trade it in for a 16-core/32-thread Ryzen Threadripper 1950X. Today, we're getting an [alleged] early look at the second-generation Ryzen Threadripper -- specifically, the range-topping 2990X SKU. This... Read more...
Intel caused a bit of a scene earlier his week when it unveiled a 5GHz28-core processorat Computex, after which it then said that it would be shipping later this year. However, Intel is now saying that it "forgot" to explain to audiences that the 28-core/56-thread processor was overclocked to reach those speeds and... Read more...
Lenovo recently unveiled several new budget IdeaPad laptops with prices starting at just $249, but apparently one of the new models is serving as a launchpad of sorts for Intel's 10-nanometer Cannon Lake processors. The 10nm part was spotted in a listing in China for Lenovo's IdeaPad 330-15, a 15.6-inch laptop with a... Read more...
Intel's next Xeon server platform is called Cascade Lake, and it looms just around the corner. After that, however, Intel will launch its 10nm Ice Lake chips. Details on Ice Lake have been pretty sparse up to this point, though some key details about the platform has been revealed by Power Stamp Alliance, which tasks... Read more...
Today is a big day for Intel -- the company is announcing a massive update to its processor families with new 8th generation Coffee Lake-based Core SKUs for both mobile and desktop platforms. On the mobile side of the equation, the most interesting processors are no doubt Intel's new six-core Coffee Lake parts... Read more...
Competition tends to bring out the best in people, and for the engineers at Intel, that means responding to AMD's 8-core Ryzen processors with 8-core variants of its own chips for mainstream consumers. And make no mistake, they are coming. Further evidence of this can be seen in Futuremark's 3DMark database, where one... Read more...
NVIDIA has been dabbling in real-time ray tracing for over a decade, and as made acquisitions in the space to leverage the technology. Now, the company is introducing NVIDIA RTX, which is its latest effort to deliver real-time ray tracingto game developers and content creators for implementation in actual game... Read more...
Intel is releasing a new batch of Coffee Lake processors, most of which are low power SKUs. Several of them appear on Amazon's marketplace through third-party sellers, and it appears ASUS has listed the full stack. The new CPUs bring the full lineup count to 23 chips with TDPs ranging from 35W to 95W, and prices... Read more...
It appears that the Spectre-Meltdown nightmare for Intel and its customers is finally nearing resolution. The chip giant has been working overtime to develop and distribute microcode updates for its processors to combat these vulnerabilities, and this morning announced that 100 percent of its processors released in...

Attempts to mitigate CPU flaws affecting practically every processor released in the past two decades has not been easy. There is no 'one-size-fits-all' solution to this mess, and some of early attempts to patch CPUs against Spectre and Meltdown only caused more problems, like random reboots. Well, good news if you an... Read more...
Intel continues to plug along with microcode updates for its vast stable of processors. Two weeks ago, the company released revised microcode updates with Spectre mitigations that were limited to mainstream Skylake mobile and desktop platforms. This week, the company has expanded the microcode updates to cover... Read more...
Advances in artificial intelligence (AI) are coming in at a rapid pace, and mobile devices seem to be the new frontier. ARM's processor architecture underpins nearly every smartphone sold today and provides the brains for countless other products in widely-varied market segments. Today, the company is looking to...

Intel has had a rough time patching the Meltdown and Spectre chip exploits that were first publicized in early January. The company issued microcode updates that helped to mitigate the exploits on processor architectures dating back to Broadwell. However, Intel quickly found out that not all was well, with customers... Read more...
It's been roughly a month since the first reports concerning Spectre and Meltdown began appearing on the web. Since that time, hardware and software companies have been working together to release BIOS/microcode updates, software patches, and operating system kernel updates to protect customers. Even though the... Read more...
We don't think that we'd be out of line if we said the revelation of the Meltdown and Spectre chip vulnerabilities and the resultant mitigations have been somewhat of a disaster. It's bad enough that the vulnerabilities exist at all, but the fixes have resulted in in some nasty side effects. AMD users were some of the... Read more...
The two most worrisome vulnerabilities in computers to have surfaced in recent months areSpectre and Meltdown, which were first first disclosed earlier this month. These flaws collectively affect processors from Intel, AMD, and ARM. The problem for some people, including Linus Torvalds, was that Intel's initial... Read more...
If you regularly follow tech -- which we're quite sure you do -- then you likely know all about the alarmingSpectre and Meltdown chip vulnerabilities that were first revealed just a few weeks ago.The good news is that software and hardware partners from around the globe have worked to issue OS patches and...
