Researchers have dubbed a newly discovered vulnerability affecting Intel CPUs as CacheOut (how bout dah?), noting it can "violate nearly every hardware-based security domain, leaking data from the OS kernel, co-resident virtual machines, and even SGX enclaves." As you might have guessed, this is yet another... Read more...
Intel has posted a security advisory saying that several of its desktop and mobile processors are susceptible to a vulnerability that could allow an attacker to alter a CPU's voltage and frequency. The goal for an attacker would be to use the exploit to swipe data from within a secured area of the CPU known as Intel... Read more...
Another day, another disclosure of a new side-channel exploit affecting modern PC processors. This time around, we're talking about ZombieLoad, which takes advantage of vulnerabilities specific to Intel processors. At its heart, ZombieLoad is reminiscent ofMeltdown, Spectre andForeshadow, which we have all covered... Read more...
Microsoft is pushing out new microcode updates for Intel processors affected by recently disclosed side channel exploits, including several Spectre variants and the newer Foreshadow flaw. The microcode updates apply to Windows 10 and Windows Server, and cover a range of Skylake, Kaby Lake, and Coffee Lake... Read more...
If you thoughtSpectre and Meltdownwere bad, there are new exploits that have the potential to seriously compromise modern Intel processors. The latest class of exploits are called Foreshadow, and were was disclosed today by Intel via a blog post. The exploit involves Intel's Software Guard Extensions, which is better... Read more...
When word finally spread about Spectre and Meltdown, it seemed only a matter of time before attackers would try to leverage the side-channel vulnerabilities. That is not the only concern, however. A team of researchers from the College of William & Mary, University of California Riverside, Carnegie Mellon University... Read more...
If youre a fan of Intels NUC series of mini PCs, the chip giant is back at it again with a refresh built on its Skylake processor platform. The big news of course comes under the hood in the form of two ultrabook-class processors: the dual-core U-Series Core i3-6100U and Core i5-6260U. The Core i3-6100U comes with... Read more...
We’ve heard from PengPod before, and we’ve seen that the company has tried to raise funds for its products via Indiegogo before. The company is back (and is renamed “PengPod” after its flagship product) with a new dual-booting tablet, the PengPod 1040. The PengPod 1040 is a 9.7-inch device that... Read more...
The mobile market is a bitter one for Intel at the moment, as up to this point, it's been unable to secure any major design wins using its Atom-based SoCs. There have been a couple of phone releases, but they've been far and few between, and mostly targeted at Europe. A couple of months ago, one win came in the form of ASUS' Fonepad, a 7-inch...

Although Samsung’s Galaxy Tab devices are generally very fine products, the sheer number of SKUs in the line make individual Tabs less interesting. However, there’s a rumor that the upcoming Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 will be packing an Intel chip instead of a homegrown Samsung Exynos or other mobile processor... Read more...
Intel may have missed its chance to power Apple's iPhone range, but Lenovo's not going to let the chipmaker skip over yet another flagship device. The company's K900 smartphone, which was initially shown at CES 2013, is finally on sale this week. It's actually one of the most powerful smartphones on the planet... Read more...
Slowly but surely, a company named BLU Products is making its name known in the growing world of unlocked Android phones. It's actually one of the faster growing phone makers in America, looking from the outside looking in like a Vizio for smartphones. As people continually grow tired of lengthy contracts and early...

For 14 years, Futuremark's 3DMark benchmarks have served as a reliable point of comparison for PCs with a vast range of CPU and GPU configurations. Now, the company is branching out into cross platform testing. The new 3DMark (there's no year or modifier attached) is designed to allow for apples-to-apples comparisons... Read more...
It's getting really difficult not to flat-out fall in love Lenovo. The PC maker doesn't sit around and whine about Microsoft stepping into the hardware space (we're looking at you, Acer), nor does it panic when computer sales start to slow down. The company simply continues to put out solid products (ThinkPad X1... Read more...
The leap from a so-called “dumbphone” to a smartphone is huge; unfortunately, so is the cost in most cases. There’s a growing market domestically and worldwide for entry- and mid-level smartphones, and MediaTek has a platform designed for those smartphone market segments. In a press release, MediaTek...

Acer's Aspire One D270 netbook will be one of the first to hit the ground running around Intel's Cedar Trail platform, and if the number of impatient vendors who have started listing the netbook ahead of its official release are any indication, we can surmise the D270 will land very soon. Notebook Italia spotted a whole bunch of European vendors... Read more...
Intel is on record as talking about MIDs, netbooks, and the device ecosystem it envisioned in between long before much of the current tablet craze, but the company has been oddly quiescent in recent months. Talk of dual-core ARM-based products, from Tegra to the iPad 2, has dominated the industry, with scarcely a peep from Intel. As of now,... Read more...
The fusion of the Internet and television, once thought to be as natural as peanut butter and chocolate, has proven to be a tricky problem for would-be content producers. Consumers have embraced direct downloads, but the concept of the television-as-interactive-device has never found traction in a shipping product. Intel wants to see that... Read more...
Mediatek, a long standing partner of ARM, has licensed the company's Mali-400 GPU and will be using it in upcoming handheld and portable devices such as media players and personal navigation devices.  This might not really sound like much, but this is the first major Mali-400 licensing announcement since the technology was launched back...
