Intel lifted the curtain on its Kaby Lake architecture earlier this week, its second consecutive "tock" in what used to be its "tick-tock" release cadence and also its 7th generation Core architecture. While that dominated the headlines, Intel also launched its budget-oriented Apollo Lake line, which is the latest generation of its low-power Atom family. Apollo Lake is the successor to Braswell and is built on the same 14nm manufacturing process. It uses Goldmont core and will slip into low-cost devices, such as budget-priced 2-in-1 systems and affordable laptops. While that doesn't sound particularly exciting (from an enthusiast standpoint, anyway), Apollo Lake gives Intel an opportunity to... Read more...
Notebook makers have answered the call for increasing thin and light solutions, but at what cost? The quest for even thinner waistlines and lighter profiles has been met with sacrifices, such as the demise of the removable battery (there are exceptions, though comparatively few). That's just the start of things—there's chatter that laptops built around Intel's Apollo Lake processors will kick replaceable RAM to the curb, as well.Citing sources from Taiwan's notebook supply chain, Digitimes claims that numerous notebook manufacturers are trending towards onboard memory memory designs rather than traditional DIMM slots. By going that route, notebook makers can introduce even slimmer designs, an... Read more...
Intel continues to crank out new Next Unit of Computing (NUC) models and has no plans of slowing down. Just the opposite, the Santa Clara chip maker is readying a new generation of its small form factor (SFF) PCs based on its unreleased Kaby Lake and Apollo Lake processors, along with modern amenities like USB-C connectivity.There's a lot of nomenclature being thrown around with these NUCs so let's take a moment clarify some things. Kaby Lake is Intel's next generation processor architecture, one that disrupts (perhaps permanently) Intel's "tick-tock" release cadence. With Intel having to push back the release of its 10nm Cannonlake architecture until 2017, it decided to fill the gap with another... Read more...
One of the fastest growing segments right now is the 2-in-1 detachable category. These systems offer the portability of a tablet with the full functionality of a laptop in a single form factor, and they're proving much more popular than standalone tablets. To ensure ongoing interest in 2-in-1 devices, Intel is readying new Apollo Lake processors that will kick performance up a notch. Intel's Apollo Lake processors are scheduled to release in the second half of this this year. They're a new family of low power SoCs designed to replace Cherry Trail and Braswell. As previously announced, they'll feature Goldmont CPU cores built on the same 14nm manufacturing process as Intel's Airmont cores found... Read more...
While it’s definitely fun to talk about enthusiast parts like Intel’s upcoming deca-core Extreme Edition processors, we have to keep in mind that many consumers don’t set their sights that high when it comes to performance and have more meager budgets to navigate. With that in mind, Intel has announced its new Apollo Lake platform, which is targeting the low-end of of the PC and tablet market. The Apollo Lake platform brings with it a number of enhancements compared to its Braswell and Cherry Trail predecessors including a new Atom microarchitecture: Goldmont. Like the Airmont architecture that came before it, Goldmont is built on a 14nm manufacturing process and supports up to four cores. However,... Read more...
