As expected, IDF13’s day two keynote was mostly about Bay Trail and Intel’s continued push into thinner, lighter, and smaller, mobile devices. The keynote was handled by a trio of execs, Douglas Fisher, Vice President and General Manager of Intel’s Software and Services Group. Herman Eul, Corporate Vice President and General Manager of the Communication group. And Kirk Skaugen, Senior Vice President and General Manager of the PC Client Group. Douglas talked about how Intel is optimizing services to expand the ecosystems surrounding mobile devices, Herman ran some fun demos featuring Intel-powered devices. And Kirk talked about the constant evolution of the PC and demoed... Read more...

They spoke of industry trends in general, about Intel’s strategy moving forward, and how they believe they can win in the current economic and technical environments. They also revealed some bleeding edge new technology, which somewhat surprisingly, was already up and running, live on stage. The underlying message of the opening keynote was that integration and innovation are driving the industry... Read more...
Intel’s Skylake processors won’t launch for some time (the company still needs to release Broadwell at some point, which won’t be out until sometime next year at the earliest), but according to a leaked roadmap slide, we can see some juicy details about Skylake. The chips will be built on Intel's 14nm process node (which we’ll see first on Haswell-E processors), and they’ll also feature AVX 3.2. DDR4 support will be included, as well as support for PCIe 4.0, and Intel’s HD graphics will hit version 9 with reportedly significantly more robust performance. DDR4 memory will be out later this year and will offer far more density per module, twice the data rates,... Read more...
The big news of the day, based on a leaked Intel roadmap, is that Broadwell won't launch in 2014. Instead, we'll see a Haswell refresh with unknown performance characteristics (slightly higher clocks are the best bet) and, late in the year, a "Haswell-E" server part on the X99 chipset. Ivy Bridge-E, the six-core LGA2011 CPU, is still set for later this year, on the X79 chipset. The big assumption coming out of this is that Intel has delayed 14nm production and that Broadwell wont' ship at all in 2014. Based on sources we've spoken to, this isn't accurate. The flaw in the current story is that it implicitly assumes that desktop is the focus of Intel's business and that the company would naturally... Read more...
All-in-one (AIO) systems like Apple's iMacs or the Asus 2400ET that were reviewed earlier this year are much like notebooks, in that they trade potential upgradeability for convenience and a smaller footprint. RAM is the one component users can count on being able to upgrade, though some models may offer an additional hard drive bay or a slot for a mini-PCIe card. The ECS G11 is a different sort of animal; ECS is marketing the system as featuring a user-replaceable motherboard. The system ships with a bog-standard mini-ITX board based on Intel's H61 chipset, supports up to 8GB of DDR3-1333, includes a slim DVD optical drive, a 150W power adapter, and wireless support. USB 2.0 connectivity is... Read more...
