Intel has been showcasing its forthcoming Tiger Lake mobile processor line-up since its public debut in January of this year at CES. However, more recently the company disclosed the architecture powering the 11th Gen Core series CPUs at its Architecture Day 2020 event and then followed-up quickly with a full product stack unveil. To say anticipation is high for this product would be an understatement. Intel has a lot riding on Tiger Lake, with its Willow Cove cores and more importantly perhaps, its 10nm SuperFin transistors and Xe Graphics technologies that will underpin a whole new family of products eventually, far beyond the company’s Tiger Lake mobile offering. We suppose you could... Read more...
3DMark is the never ending spigot of leaks, and more recently, we have seen a bunch of them pertaining to Intel's upcoming Tiger Lake-U series. That is what we have again here today. The latest leak is said to highlight an unspecified Tiger Lake-U processor with onboard Gen2 "Xe" graphics, in the Fire Strike benchmark. Tiger Lake-U is will be labeled as 11th generation Intel Core processors, and will succeed the company's 10th generation Ice Lake-U stack. They will be manufactured on an enhanced 10-nanometer node. As designated by the "U," these chips will find their way into low power laptops, and perhaps some mini PCs as well. The latest leak comes by way of @_rogame (no surprise there). Here's...

Intel's first Tiger Lake processors, which are based on the 10nm process node, aren't expected to debut until the latter half of 2020. However, that isn't stopping early engineering samples of the chips from making an appearance in popular benchmark software. In this case, benchmark entries in both Geekbench 5 and SiSoftware were uncovered by TUM_APISAK. The Geekbench entry shows a 4-core/8-thread processor operating with a base clock of 1.19GHz. Given the "Y" designation, the low clock speed shouldn't be too surprising, as these are ultra-low power mobile processors. Intel's Y-Series typically have a TDP in the 9W range, even lower than the 15-25W U-Series. We're also expecting 12MB of L3 cache... Read more...
Deepfake photos and videos have fooled many people, but can text-generated articles be just as convincing? OpenAI recently published the full version of “GPT-2: 1.5B”, a text-generating artificial intelligence system. The research lab warns that the tool could potentially be dangerous if it is misused. OpenAI released a paired down version of its GPT-2 model this past winter. This model included 124 million parameters, while the latest release features more than 1.5 billion parameters. OpenAI originally believed that its GPT-2 model was too dangerous, but there has since been “no strong evidence of misuse.” The full version was released earlier this week. Researchers used...
