It appears that the fallout from Intel's release of BIOS updates to address Spectre and Meltdown chip vulnerabilities continues to rain down on the PC community. Most recently, Dell has advised its customers against installing BIOS/microcode updates that have been distributed to address Spectre (Variant 2). If you... Read more...
Intel has a pretty big Spectre/Meltdown problem on its hands. The company over the past few weeks has issued patches to help mitigate the processor vulnerabilities, but those patches have resulted in frequent reboots of both older (Broadwell, Haswell) and newer (Skylake, Kaby Lake) processors, and everything in...

Intel has been taking heat for patches that it deployed for the Spectre and Meltdown chip flaws. Recently deployed patches have resulted in some systems being subjected to random rebooting. However, Linus Torvalds is blasting Intel for another consequence of its patching regimen. In Torvalds' words, the patches are... Read more...
Intel last week acknowledged that firmware updates intended to mitigate the security threats posed by Meltdown and Spectre were causing reboot issues in both client and data center computers powered by Broadwell and Haswell processors. Now it turns out that PCs running newer generation CPUs are experiencing "more... Read more...
The big news with Intel (outside of the Meltdown and Spectre madness) is that it partnered with rival AMD to build custom modules combining its Core processors with AMD's Vega graphics. That's an exciting development, though it's not the end game for Intel's graphics play. Looking down the line, Intel will switch to... Read more...
With most of the attention focused on Intel with regards to Meltdown and Spectre -- Intel is the only chip OEM that is affected by both vulnerabilities -- the company has done its best to try to be as transparent as possible about how it issues firmware updates and patches for affected systems. Roughly a week ago... Read more...
In the wake of aggressive price slashing from the competition in recent months, HTC just showed the world that it is committed to VR, now and into the future. At CES, the company announced the Vive Pro, a upgraded version of the original Vive VR headset with a higher resolution and other tweaks, and a new wireless... Read more...
Unless you perform high level calculations on an abacus, chances are high that yes, you are affected by the recently disclosed Meltdown and Spectre vulnerabilities. Between the two, practically every modern processor is vulnerable, including Intel CPUs dating back more than a decade, along with AMD and ARM chips. And... Read more...
Security researchers this week dropped a bombshell on pretty much everyone who owns a computer, saying there are inherent flaws in modern processors that could allow an attacker to access sensitive information, including passwords and other contents stored in what's supposed to be protected memory. At first it was... Read more...
Apple has filed a patent application with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) that provides some insight into how the company plans to tackle navigation. The patent explains how Apple intends to make autonomous driving more efficient by reducing the need to constantly remake detailed maps. It also... Read more...
Intel is not the only one making bold moves these days. So are Microsoft and Qualcomm, two other tech giants that recently formed a partnership to deliver Windows 10 laptops and 2-in-1 devices powered by Snapdragon 835 SoCs. Unlike Microsoft's earlier foray into ARM territory with Surface RT, these devices will be... Read more...
Intel is readying a bunch of new processors, both for mobile and on the desktop, as revealed by fairly massive leak this morning. We covered those already, but on top of all the processors that were already mentioned, a Chinese-language website was able to dig up some additional information after speaking with... Read more...
Back in September, AMD Radeon Technologies Group (RTG) chief Raja Koduri took a sabbatical following the launch of the Radeon RX Vega series of graphics cards. At the time, Koduri explained, "Vega was personally hard on me as well and I used up a lot of family credits during this journey. I have decided to take a... Read more...
Reading through technical documents is rarely fun, but every so often there are interesting nuggets to uncover. Such is the case with a document (PDF) on Intel's website in regards to its upcoming 10-nanometer Cannon Lake processors. According to the "Intel Architecture Instruction Set Extensions and Future Features... Read more...
Today,Intel announced something that it hopes will help in the fight againstNVIDIA in the AI market. Intel's new processor is called the Nervana Neural Network Processor, and previously went by the codename "Lake Crest." Intel says that it has been working to make the Nervana processor for three years and it is now... Read more...
There are some interesting things to be discovered when removing the integrated heatspreader (IHS) from a processor, a delicate and dangerous (to the CPU) process known as delidding. For example, you might uncover so called 'dummy dies' as famed overclocker der8auer did when delidding a Threadripper 1950X processor... Read more...
There's been a ton of talk (and leaks) surrounding Intel's upcoming 8th-gen Core processors, dubbed "Coffee Lake". Based on what we've seen so far, Intel is striking back hard at AMD, offering more cores at the top-end of its line-up (over its own previous generation), and higher frequencies overall. We've already... Read more...
The next piece in Intel's 8th generation Core family puzzle has just been revealed, and we're quite certain that you've already heard quite a bit about it from us. Following the launch of its 8th generation Kaby Lake Refresh mobile processors in late August, Intel is following up with the official reveal of its 14nm... Read more...
We've been talking a lot about Intel's upcoming Coffee Lake architecture for the past few months, and are eagerly awaiting its arrival. However, it appears that Intel has even more potent chips in the pipeline that will go beyond the hexa-core chips that will highlight Coffee Lake. Heads (and eyes) are probably... Read more...
G.Skill has rolled out some RAM for computer enthusiasts out there who have the cheddar to plunk down for the Intel's Kaby Lake-X/X299 HEDT platform. This would be THE memory to cram into your Intel Core i9 X-Series rig. The RAM kit is DDR4-4600MHx CL19 and is built using hand-selected, high-quality Samsung B-die IC... Read more...
We are expecting Intel to launch its desktop Coffee Lake lineup relatively soon, and reinforcing that notion is a leaked roadmap that shows the company's Z370 chipset arriving in the fourth quarter of 2017, and perhaps even a little bit earlier. Considering that we are at the tail-end of the third quarter, based on... Read more...
It looks as though Coffee Lake isnt just going to bring us the first mainstream hexa-core processors from Intel, but also a shakeup in the lower-end Core i3 family.
