Back in August, we began hearing a lot more about Intel's next-generation Comet Lake-S desktop processors, which will follow hot on the heels of their Comet Lake laptop counterparts. According to our previous reporting, Comet Lake-S will be available in up to 10-core/20-thread SKUs across 35W, 65W and 125W TDP ranges. Today, we're getting detailed information on one new member of the Comet Lake-S family: the Core i3-10100. As its Core i3 designation confirms, this is an entry-level processor, albeit one with 4 cores and HyperThreading enabled (8 threads). According to a SiSoftware database entry originally uncovered by TUM_APISAK, the Core i3-10100 has a base clock of 3.6GHz, a total of... Read more...
It's no secret that Intel has a lot riding on its "Ice Lake" 10th generation Core CPUs manufactured on its 10-nanometer fabrication process. The chipmaker got by on squeezing more power and efficiency out of its 14-nm node for what seemed like an eternity, but we're talking about a mobile sector that relentlessly demands more performance and longer battery life. This oft-delayed Intel process node promises to reduce power consumption and increase performance by a wide margin over the Kaby Lake Refresh processors that previously served as the brains for thin and light PCs.

Intel is discontinuing its Kaby Lake-G processors with AMD's Radeon RX Vega graphics infused into the package, marking the end of what had been an unlikely partnership. Vendors can still order Kaby Lake-G parts and will still be able to do so until July 31, 2020, after which Intel will no longer ship additional units. Kaby Lake-G entered the scene in November 2017. The surprise collaboration saw two rivals come together to build what had looked like a promising product line combining Intel's 8th generation Core processors with AMD's Radeon RX Vega graphics and HBM2 memory on a single, multi-chip module package (MCM). At the time, Intel talked about Kaby Lake-G enabling thinner and lighter notebook,... Read more...
Late last week, Intel announced its strongest answer yet to AMD’s Ryzen Threadripper family of HEDT processors with the Cascade Lake-X family. While Intel’s Core-X processors have always been competitive on the performance side of things in the past, their pricing tiers have always been woefully inflated compared to AMD’s offerings. That changes with the 10th generation Core-X processors, which have seen their prices roughly slashed in half compared to their predecessors. The flagship of the new Cascade Lake-X family is the Core i9-10980XE (say that three times fast), which is an 18-core/36-thread CPU. The processor has a base clock of 3GHz, a maximum Turbo...

Intel on Monday unveiled a bunch of new Xeon W-2200 series processors at comparatively aggressive price points. The new Glacier Falls CPUs range in core and thread count from 4-cores/8-threads up to 18-cores/36-threads, and are up to around 50 percent less expensive than the previous generation Xeon W-2100 series. Increased competition from rival AMD has seen Intel shake up pricing on its higher end processors. We saw this last week with the introduction of Intel's newest Core-X series high-end desktop (HEDT) processors based on Cascade Lake-X, which also saw MSRPs slashed up to to 50 percent compared to the previous generation Skylake-X lineup. Intel Xeon W-2200 Series Models, Specs, And Pricing... Read more...
Intel and Brown University announced today that they are working on a DARPA-funded project that is called Intelligent Spine Interface. The project is aiming to use AI tech to restore movement and bladder control in patients who have severe spinal cord injuries. During the two year-program, researchers will record motor and sensory signals for the spinal cord. The team will use AI networks to learn how to stimulate the post-injury site to send motor commands. During the study, surgeons at Rhode Island hospital near Brown University will implant electrode arrays on both ends of a patient's injury site. The electrodes will create an intelligent bypass to allow the severed nerves to communicate in... Read more...
Intel earlier this week officially announced its new Cascade Lake-X family of HEDT processors that will be marketed under the Core-X brand. The processors are built on the tried and true 14nm++ manufacturing process and will be going head-to-head with AMD's second-generation Ryzen Threadripper processors (at least initially), and will face even tougher competition once third-generation Threadripper parts arrive in November. The four new Cascade Lake-X processors in the family include: Core i9-10980XE (18-cores/36-threads): $979 Core i9-10940X (14-cores/28-threads):  $784 Core i9-10920X (12-cores/24-threads):  $689 Core i9-10900X (10-cores/20-threads):  $590...

Remember the Courier concept that leaked from Microsoft over a decade ago? It has finally manifested itself into a real product that Surface Chief Panos Panay announced today called the Surface Neo. The Surface Neo features dual 9-inch displays covered in Gorilla Glass that are joined together with a central 360-degree hinge. That hinge, which features micro-gears with an innovative torque system, allows the device to contort into a number of various positions based on what your current workload is like. You can use it as a dual-screen device; you can it with just a single display; you can use it in tent mode; and you can even slap on a Bluetooth keyboard that magnetically attaches to the bottom...

Microsoft held its yearly Surface event today in New York City, and the company is living up to the hype that has been building leaving up to the big unveil. There have been plenty of rumors swirling around the devices, and those reports have largely turned out to be accurate as we're staring at the Surface Laptop 3. The Surface Laptop 3 is available in two screen sizes: 13-inches and 15-inches (as previously reported). This is the first time that the larger 15-inch form-factor has been available for the Surface Laptop product line, and gives users who want a bit more screen real estate a new alternative.  Under the hood, it has been confirmed that the 13-inch model is using quad-core...

Intel wasn't kidding when it said that the new Cascade Lake-X processors (the foundation of the upcoming Core-X family) would offer anywhere from a 1.74x to 2.09x uplift in performance per dollar compared to their Skylake-X predecessors. Intel is slashing prices by roughly 50 percent with its upcoming Cascade Lake-X processors, putting its chips on more equal footing with AMD's second-generation Ryzen Threadripper processors. For starters, the top dog in Intel's HEDT product stack, the Core i9-10980XE will now be priced at $979. To put this in perspective, the Core i9-9990XE carries an MSRP of $1,979. Given what we heard from Intel in a "leaked" memo about the threat... Read more...
Hewlett-Packard is refreshing its popular Spectre x360 13 with a number of critical upgrades that make it an even more compelling mobile warrior for professionals. Perhaps the biggest change comes with respect to the device's chassis, which has nipped and tucked to the max. HP has managed to shrink the Spectre x360 13 by 13 percent compared to its 2018 counterpart, mainly due to changes that have been made around the display. Last year's model had a screen-to-body ratio of 78 percent compared to 90 recent for this new 2019 edition, which explains the reduction in exterior dimensions for the convertible. With its new, tidier dimensions, the Spectre x360 13 now weighs in at an impressive 2.8 pounds.... Read more...
Peering into its crystal ball, Intel sees a future in which innovative storage products play a massive roll, both on the consumer side and especially within the enterprise and data center sectors. Related to that, Intel today outlined its Optane roadmap, including a new "Barlow Pass" Optane DC persistent memory for its Ice Lake and Cooper Lake CPUs. "The world is generating data at an accelerating rate, and businesses are increasingly becoming overwhelmed with how to efficiently process it. Harvesting value from all this data will be critical in separating the winners from losers. It will require cutting-edge innovation in the memory-and-storage hierarchy, which is what we are driving at Intel,"... Read more...
With the launch of Cascade Lake-X just days away, we're starting to see a few more leaks regarding Intel’s upcoming Core-X HEDT processor family. As you all know by now, Cascade Lake-X is still built on 14nm++ process tech, since Intel has only rolled out 10nm in limited quantities for its Ice Lake-U mobile processors. With that being said, we are confident that there will be at least four members in this new Cascade Lake-X family, which you'll find listed below: Core i9-10900X (10-core/20-thread) Core i9-10920X (12-core/24-thread) Core i9-10940X (14-core, 28-thread) Core i9-10980XE (18-core/36-thread) So far, we've seen benchmarks leaks for both the Core i9-10900X and...

Evidence pointing towards a Ryzen 5 3500X addition to AMD's third-generation Ryzen lineup is stacking up. The latest clue is a validated CPU-Z entry. Submitted by an anonymous user, the Ryzen 5 3500X listing on CPU-Z seemingly provides a glimpse of how the upcoming processor will fare compared to Intel's 9th generation Core i5-9400F. As previously rumored and now seemingly confirmed in the CPU-Z listing, the Ryzen 5 3500X is a 6-core processor without simultaneous multi-threading (SMT) support. It's said to have a 3.6GHz base clock and 4.1GHz boost clock, 32MB of L3 cache, and a 65W TDP, with a Wraith Stealth air cooler included with the chip. The new leak was spotted by a Chinese media outlet,... Read more...
