There's been lot of talk about Intel's 14nm Comet Lake and 10nm Tiger Lake processor architectures in recent months, but there's another revolutionary chip architecture also waiting in the wings: Lakefield. Lakefield uses Intel's Foveros 3D stacking technology and is built on the 10nm process node. Tech sleuth TUM_APISAK located a UserBenchmark score from a previously unseen Core i5-L16G7. The "L" designation seemingly references its Lakefield roots, and it is a strange chip indeed. According to UserBenchmark, Core i5-L16G7 has a total of 5 cores with HyperThreading disabled, which means that it can execute 5 threads.  In this case, the Core i5-L16G7 has a single high-powered Sunny...

Samsung today just announced a pair of new laptops that are destined to replace its existing Notebook 9 Series devices. We present you with the Intel Project Athena-verified Galaxy Book Flex and Galaxy Book Ion; the former is a 2-in-1 convertible while the latter is a traditional laptop. Both devices use Intel's 10th generation Core processors, but they take slightly different approaches. The Galaxy Book Flex uses Intel's 10nm Ice Lake processors, while the Galaxy Book Ion uses 14nm+ Comet Lake processors. Both processors can be paired with up to 16GB of RAM, with the former using LPDDR4x, while the latter uses DDR4. Galaxy Book Flex Both devices use 13.3-inch or 15.6-inch Full HD (1920x1080)...

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...
