It took some time for Intel to move past 14-nanometer manufacturing in any kind of meaningful way (let's not talk about Cannon Lake), but it appears the company has now done that. We say this because during a recent earnings call with investors, Intel chief executive officer Pat Gelsinger revealed that the company is... Read more...
Well isn't this a blast from the past? Intel just issued a new Product Change Notification (PCN) document in which it has informed customers that it is reviving the Pentium G3420 processor, and is now taking new orders for the chip. This announcement left us scratching our heads, as we initially couldn't think of any... Read more...
Earlier this year, we heard rumors that Intel was reaching out to Samsung to help alleviate some of its supply issues with respect to 14nm chip production. At the time, it was alleged that Samsung would be producing 14nm Rocket Lake parts for Intel. However, our own sources at the time asserted that the reports were... Read more...
Intel has been talking about its Core i9-9900KS processor for months now. It was all the way back in May that the company first revealed what would become the new flagship processor in its mainstream computing platform. The Core i9-9900KS is not something totally new, however. As the “S” in its name... Read more...
Earlier this summer, Intel released a new family of 10th Generation laptop processors based on its 10nm Ice Lake architecture. Those processors top out with 4-core/8-thread CPUs with TDPs ranging from 9W to 28W. Ice Lake was a long time coming, but it shows us a clear path forward with Intel’s arsenal to combat a...

Yesterday we wrote about a Korean-language news report suggesting that Intel had commissioned Samsung, a rival of sorts in the semiconductor space (as it pertains to jockeying for the title of top semiconductor producer), to manufacture its upcoming 14-nanometer Rocket Lake CPUs. Well, we have new information... Read more...
Update: After reporting on this rumor yesterday, we have since learned new information debunking Samsung's involvement with Rocket Lake production. Specifically, we have it on good authority from sources close to the matter, that Samsung will in fact NOT be manufacturing CPUs of any kind for Intel. We have posted a... Read more...
Since the launch of AMD's Ryzen processors last spring, the processor market has been an interesting, and even exciting one to follow. It seemed like overnight, we went from quad-cores being the norm to six and eight-core processors taking over on the desktop. As AMD became even more aggressive after its Zen launch... Read more...
Intel posted its highest third-quarter revenue in the history of the company, raking in $19.2 billion, a 19 percent jump from the same quarter a year prior.

Earlier today, a report was making the rounds claiming that Intel had abruptly decided to kill its 10nm chip production. The possibility that Intel would mothball its 10nm line definitely caught a lot of attention because the company has admitted to delays in bring processors based on the manufacturing tech to market, and volume production Read more...
Intel has some potential trouble on its hands. The company warned about potential supply issues with its 14nm processors as early as July, when it announced its Q2 2018 earnings. At the time, the company said that its delayed 10nm processors had resulted in unanticipated additional demand for its 14nm... Read more...

We’ve heard quite a bit about Kaby Lake over the last few months, and were even able to show you it in action last week while covering IDF, but today we’ve got many more details to... Read more...
Samsung today announced that it's begun mass producing 14nm LPP (Low-Power Plus) logic chips based on its three-dimensional (3D) FinFET process. The South Korean chip maker also confirmed that Qualcomm is among its "many foundry customers" and that it is fabricating Qualcomm's forthcoming Snapdragon 820... Read more...
Today's a good day for for AMD. GlobalFoundries, the former manufacturing arm of AMD that became fully independent in 2012, announced today that it achieved "silicon success" with the first AMD products using a 14nm FinFET manufacturing process. Going forward, multiple AMD products will benefit from this. The 14nm... Read more...
Earlier today, Barron's published an article speculating that GlobalFoundries would delay its 14nm product ramp by several quarters as it struggled with unspecified production problems. GlobalFoundries has denied any such issues in a statement to Hot Hardware, and has specifically told us that its 14nm ramp plans... Read more...
Apple knows better than to cut off its nose to spite its face, as the saying goes, hence why it still contracts Samsung to build the custom System-on-Chips (SoCs) that end up in iOS devices like the iPhone and iPad. Will that relationship continue between these two bitter rivals? It would appear so, based on comments... Read more...
If Intel's recent 14nm Broadwell Y unveil has made anything clear, it's that the company is now determined to go toe-to-toe with every foundry manufacturer at the 14nm node. It wasn't initially clear if this would be the case. While Intel made a big splash with its first 14nm announcements, news of the delays and a... Read more...
Intel has announced a new partnership with mobile SoC developer Rockchip, with plans to bring new Android products to China beginning in the first half of 2015. The partnership will use Intel's SoFIA platform with an integrated 3G radio and Atom processor initially, though Intel does plan to deliver a follow-up... Read more...
