One of the most highly anticipated hardware releases pegged for 2020 is Tiger Lake. Tiger Lake is the follow-up to 14nm Comet Lake and 10nm Ice Lake in the mobile processor realm, and is built on a refined 10nm+ process node.  The Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) has the scoop on some early examples of Tiger Lake that are currently being shipped to system integrators. The EEC listing references two SKUs: UMTU5KIS2B and UMTU5KIS3B. The former references a “Tiger Lake Si Only Upgrade Kit", while the latter is said to be a "Tiger Lake Si Only Upgrade Kit (Beta) Development Kit". It would make sense that Intel is sending out these development boards so that its partners can begin the... Read more...
Intel's next-generation of desktop processors will be based on its Comet Lake architecture, which is yet another entry in the company's 14nm lineage. Although we don't have a definite launch date in sight for the processors, the requisite motherboards for the platform are already making their presence known. As you may already know, Comet Lake-S uses a new socket (LGA 1200), which means that customers will need to use new 400-Series motherboards. Thanks to the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC), we now know the names of MSI's entire Z490 motherboard lineup that will launch alongside Comet Lake-S. According to the EEC, this is the full lineup: Z490-A PRO Creator Z490I MPG Z490M GAMING EDGE... Read more...
There's no doubt that "Big Navi" is on the way from AMD. In fact, CEO Lisa Su confirmed as much during a roundtable interview at CES 2020. However, there has been no clear-cut timetable on when this flagship graphics card will arrive on the scene. With that being said, it appears that AMD OEM board partner AFOX may be jumping the gun a bit with listings for a number of unannounced and unreleased graphics cards. First spotted on the EEC (Eurasian Economic Commission) website by VideoCardz, AFOX provides the following SKUs that could be coming in the future: Radeon RX 5950XT Radeon RX 5950 Radeon RX 5900 Radeon RX 5800 XT Now there is no guarantee that either of these names could be applied...

Late in 2019, Apple released its [mostly] new flagship MacBook Pro laptop with a larger 16-inch display, 100 WHr battery, and most importantly a new scissor-style keyboard to replace the hated and trouble-prone butterfly keys. It's a given that the more robust scissor key mechanism will arrive on Apple's smaller MacBooks in the future, and we could be looking at signs of the first of these products today. Thanks to some sleuthing by MacRumors, the company found his Apple product identifier in the European Economic Commission (EEC) database: A2289. A2289 is simply described as a "portable personal computer brand Apple" that is running macOS 10.15. Given that the 16-inch MacBook... Read more...
