Intel; is set to officially lift the veil on its Coffee Lake family of processors on Monday to coincide with the solar eclipse that will sweep across the United States. However, a new leak out of China gives us an early glimpse of Intel’s own guidance for Coffee Lake performance compared to the current generation Kaby Lake processors. As you can see in, Intel is promising some decent performance gains in single-threaded benchmarks, with the flagship Core i7-8700K offering an 11 percent gain over the current Core i7-7700K. Multi-threaded performance also jumps by just over 51 percent, which is partially... Read more...
Intel is promising "amazing performance and responsiveness" from its Ice Lake processor family, and in doing so has officially confirmed the successor to the 8th generation Core processor family. Not many details were shared—other than hyping up the performance, Intel said its Ice Lake chips will be built on its 10-nanometer+ (10nm+) process technology, which will succeed Cannon Lake. Following all of these product names can be a bit confusing, so we will try to clear things up as best we can. On Monday, August 21 (same day as the upcoming total solar eclipse), Intel will launch its 8th generation... Read more...
President Donald Trump has been spearheading a special council that puts some of the best executives in the country in one place with the hope of improving manufacturing in the US. Intel CEO Brian Krzanich has announced via a blog post that he has abandoned the council. Krzanich wrote, "Earlier today, I tendered my resignation from the American Manufacturing Council. I resigned to call attention to the serious harm our divided political climate is causing to critical issues, including the serious need to address the decline of American manufacturing. Politics and political agendas have sidelined... Read more...
It looks as though Coffee Lake isn’t just going to bring us the first mainstream hexa-core processors from Intel, but also a shakeup in the lower-end Core i3 family. According to a new leak from a Chinese website, there will be at least two, quad-core, Core i3 offerings on the way from Intel. The first is the Core i3-8100. This will be a true quad-core part with a base frequency of 3.6GHz. It has 6MB of Intel Smart Cache, a GPU clock of 1.1GHz and a TDP of 65 watts. The more interesting chip, however, is the Core i3-8350K, which has a base clock of 4GHz, supports overclocking, features 8MB of Smart... Read more...
When it comes to the high-end desktop market (HEDT), the gloves are coming off. Both Intel and AMD are ready to duke it out, with the former offering processors with up to 18 cores and 36 threads, while the latter is countering with up to 16 cores and 32 threads. Up until this point, the most potent member of Intel’s Core X-Series that has been released to the public has been the Core i9-7900X, but the next chip on deck is the Core i9-7920X. Luckily for us, that exact chip has made its way over to Geekbench, giving us a preliminary look at what kind of performance is possible from this 12-core,... Read more...
Back in March, Intel made its pursuits in autonomous driving well known to the world by acquiring Israeli company Mobileye for a healthy $63.54 per share, representing an equity value of $15.3 billion. Intel has had some missteps these past few years, having bowed out of the wearable market, and even the DIY market, but the reach of the autonomous vehicle market is immense, and it's one area where Intel could make its mark. Even if it's getting into things a lot later than a good chunk of its competition. Mobileye, Intel, and BMW showing off an autonomous vehicle prototype The company is wasting... Read more...
Intel is teaming up with Facebook to unveil its 8th generation Core processor family, otherwise known as Coffee Lake. The unveiling will take place in about two weeks on Monday, August 21, 2017 through Facebook Live, a decision that underscores the power of social media and in particular that of Facebook. Not by accident, Intel chose that date because it coincides with a solar eclipse in the US. "Watch as two exciting moments align: the Great American Solar Eclipse and the unveiling of Intel’s most powerful family of processors for the next era of computing. Hear from those who are at the center... Read more...
There is a big push for solid state drive (SSDs) to transform the data center storage market, and Intel is banking on a new form-factor to help spur that transition. The company has announced its new “Ruler” SSD form-factor, which completely ditches legacy 2.5- and 3.5-inch formats. These “long and skinny” SSDs are optimized to maximize storage capacity in targeted servers, while outperforming legacy form-factors in both cooling and power requirements. Using the Ruler form-factor, Intel says that it can infuse 1U servers with up to 1PB of storage, which would be enough to hold 300,000 HD movies.... Read more...
After the full Core-X lineup was leaked late last month, Intel has officially confirmed the details surrounding the remaining processors in the family. We should mention that there aren’t any new surprises here with regards to specs, but you will want to keep an eye on the availability dates. The three remaining pieces to the Skylake-X puzzle are the Core i9-7940X, Core i9-7960X and Core i9-7980XE, which are 14-, 16- and 18-core processors respectively. While Intel had revealed pricing for all three processors when the Core X-Series was officially announced in May, final specs weren’t available... Read more...
Intel is getting ready to launch its 8th generation Core processor lineup, otherwise known as Coffee Lake. There is not a whole lot we know about Coffee Lake at this point, other than it being another 14-nanometer refresh (Cannon Lake will represent a move to 10nm). While we await official word from Intel, leaked specs seem to have found their way to the web. A Chinese-language website claims to have confirmed a fleshed out desktop lineup consisting of five Coffee Lake processors, include two Core i7 chips, two Core i5 models, and a single Core i3 SKU, the latter of which will be the only one of...

Over the past few months, we’ve seen various leaks regarding Intel’s upcoming 8th generation ”Coffee Lake” Core processors. Most of the leaks have pertained to core counts and clock speeds, with the top-ranging SKUs sporting 6 cores and 12 threads, which is music to the ears of enthusiasts. However, a prominent motherboard manufacturer has confirmed one bit of bad news regarding Coffee Lake that will leave many banging their heads against their keyboard. The official Twitter account for a prominent motherboard manufacturer over the weekend responded to a question regarding Coffee Lake compatibility... Read more...
VR and AR are two of the biggest growth areas in computing today. So far, much of that growth has been focused on gaming, like the new Lenovo and Disney tie up for Star Wars AR content. The future will also see wider use of VR and AR in the workplace. To support this business use of VR hardware, HP has announced a new wearable computer called the HP Z VR Backpack PC. The wearable VR rig is designed from the ground up to break workers free of wires and tethers so they can move around crowded locations without restrictions. The systems are meant for all sorts of business uses from demonstrations... Read more...
“What, me worry?” Intel yesterday posted its Q2 earnings report, and the company managed to beat analysts’ expectations. The chip giant reported revenue of $14.8 billion and earnings per share of $0.72. This performance outpaced “The Street”, which was expecting $14.41 billion and $0.68 respectively. With the exception of its Programmable Solutions Group, all of Intel’s other key business units were up (some significantly) compared to the same period a year ago. Intel’s Client Computing Group remains its largest revenue generator, boasting a 12 percent revenue increase over the same period last... Read more...
Like a slow running faucet, detailed specifications for Intel's highest tier Core X-series processors—all of which are Skylake-X CPUs—have been slowly revealed one drip at a time. Last week, for example, Intel updated its Core X-series processor chart with clockspeeds for its Core i9-7920X. That still left us in the dark about the three remaining CPUs that sit above it, though a new leak may have divulged those details.The leak comes in the form of a photograph of Intel's Core X-series processor chart that has been fully fleshed out with core counts, threads, clockspeeds, L3 cache, PCIe 3.0 lanes,...
