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...
One of the many benefits of Intel’s strong focus on power efficiency in recent years is that relatively high performance processors are now able to fit into tiny form factors. Case in point, the recently released Intel Compute Stick for 2016. That little gizmo has a quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, 802.11ac Wi-Fi and a handful of ports in a package that’s not much bigger than a thumb drive.Although we dug the latest Compute Stick, it’s not without some drawbacks. 2GB of RAM is essentially the bare minimum needed to run Windows 10 semi-smoothly, and the device’s diminutive enclosure means the CPU inside must be actively cooled. There’s just not enough space in there for a... Read more...
