Earlier today, a report was making the rounds claiming that Intel had abruptly decided to kill its 10nm chip production. The possibility that Intel would mothball its 10nm line definitely caught a lot of attention because the company has admitted to delays in bring processors based on the manufacturing tech to market, and volume production wasn't expected to occur until the second half of 2019. The original report that alleged that Intel 10nm tech is dead stemmed from Semi Accurate, which wrote: Now we are hearing from trusted moles that the process is indeed dead and that is a good...

After weeks (or even months) of build-up, Intel has today launched its 9th-gen Core series, led by the eight-core, sixteen-thread Core i9-9900K. We took an in-depth look at Intel's latest hotness earlier, finding that overall, Intel's new mainstream top dog offers the strongest single-threaded performance going, as well as great multi-threaded performance. On the topic of performance, it doesn't matter just how fast a new processor is, because it's never going to be fast enough for overclockers who want to achieve jaw-dropping benchmark scores. At Intel's launch event for the 9th-gen Core series... Read more...
After what seemed like months of leaks and speculation, Intel officially announced its 9th Generation Core desktop CPU line-up a couple of weeks back, at a lavish event in New York City. Though the upcoming Core X series processors, the beastly 28-core Xeon W-3175X, and the 9th Gen Core i family don’t feature new architectures, all of the parts bring something fresh to the table, whether it be soldered thermal interface material, unlocked multipliers in the case of the Xeon, or updated silicon designs that incorporate more core resources, among other things. One of the most anticipated and... Read more...
Intel this week announced a major shakeup in its manufacturing division amid continuing delays in rolling out its 10nm processors. Intel has been building chips on its 14nm process since 2014 and the company has indicated that its 10nm CPUs won’t be ready for volume production until 2019. In order to get its house in order, Intel is splitting up its manufacturing unit; the company announced its plans to employees on Monday. The Intel Manufacturing and Technology group will be chopped into three components: technology development, manufacturing and operations, and supply chain.... Read more...
After Microsoft fessed up to a bug that was causing customers to lose data when upgrading to the Windows 10 October 2018 Update, the company was hit with another seemingly widespread issue. Customers reported after installing the latest major feature update, that their audio was suddenly borked. Many simply received the following error message: "No Audio output is installed". After digging around to find the root cause of this latest issue, Microsoft now has a solution. And in fact, it is pointing the finger not at itself (as it did with the file deletion bug), but at Intel. In a... Read more...
Now is a fantastic time to build a high-end AMD Ryzen system. Yes, Intel just recently launched its 9th generation Core processor family culmination in the 8-core/16-thread Core i9-9900K, and that chip is sure to be a beast. However, we spotted AMD's Ryzen 7 2700X selling for as low as $279.99, and you shave another $30 off if you bundle it with a motherboard. The Ryzen 7 2700X is the flagship part in AMD's second generation Ryzen lineup in the mainstream desktop CPU category. It has the same number of cores and threads as the Core i9-9900K, and is clocked at 3.7GHz to 4.3GHz, with 20MB of smart... Read more...
Much of the attention over Intel's recently launched 9th generation Core lineup has been paid to the Core i9-9900K, the flagship CPU in the new mainstream lineup, and Intel's first 8-core/16-thread part. However, there are two other 9th gen chips: Core i7-9700K and Core i5-9600K. Review embargoes exist for all three, though benchmarks have leaked out showing how the Core i5-9600K performs at stock settings, and when overclocked to 5.2GHz. Like the two other 9th gen parts, the Core i5-9600K is built on a refined 14nm++ manufacturing process. It's the lone 6-core part in the new lineup and lacks... Read more...
Intel and its hired benchmarking gun, Principled Technologies, have come under fire for the benchmarking methodology used to validate the Core i9-9900K as the "world's fastest gaming processor." At the heart of the issue is the latter's decision to enable Game Mode on AMD's Ryzen 7 2700X, resulting in a performance disparity upwards of 50 percent compared to the Core i9-9900K. Principled Technologies has since retested the Ryzen 7 2700X in Creator Mode, and while the new data still has the Core i9-9900K coming out ahead, the disparity isn't nearly as dramatic. As you might already know, the Core... Read more...
Intel made a splash when it finally introduced its oft-leaked 9th generation Core lineup consisting of three initial SKUs, the Core i9-9900K, Core i7-9700K, and Core i5-9600K. The launch event was high on hype—Intel called the Core i9-9900K the best gaming chip in the world, and then showed off a set of gaming benchmarks performed by an outside company, Principled Technologies. Not without controversy, Principled Technologies has taken to defending its testing methodology, which showed the Core i9-9900K trouncing AMD's Ryzen 7 2700X. Let's back up a moment. In case you missed it, the Core... Read more...
Intel officially launched its 9th generation Core processors this morning, which include the Core i5-9600K, Core i7-9700K and Core i9-9900K. As you might expect, there are a slew of Intel Z390 motherboards being announced that support the new processors, with the latest being from EVGA and Gigabyte. EVGA has announced two Z390 motherboards: the Z390 Dark and the Z390 FTW. Starting off with the former, EVGA says that the Z390 Dark is designed for "ultra-enthusiasts" and includes a 17 Phase VRM design, two right-angle 8-pin high current connectors, Optane Memory support,...

Last year, Intel threw down the gauntlet with respect to HEDT processors with the Core X-Series. Available with up to 18 cores (36 threads), these chips provided a stiff challenge to AMD's first-generation Ryzen Threadripper processors (albeit with much higher MSRPs). Now with AMD's second-generation Ryzen Threadripper processors making the rounds, Intel is ready to counters with its latest family of Core X-Series processors. There are seven processors in the new Core X-Series family, with the Core i7-9800X ($589) positioned as the entry-level offering and the Core i9-9980XE ($1,979)... Read more...
Intel today officially announced the first round of 9th generation Core processors, and given all the leaks that have occurred over the past few months, there weren’t too many surprises. Like all of Intel’s processors released over the past few years, the 9th generation Core parts are based on a refined 14nm manufacturing process (14nm++), and are dubbed Coffee Lake Refresh. There are three processors that were announced today: Core i9-9900K: 8 cores / 16 threads, 3.6GHz to 5GHz, 16MB L3 cache, 95W TDP Core i7-9700K: 8 cores / 8 threads, 3.6GHz to 4.9GHz, 12MB L3 cache,...

While is nothing is yet official, Intel is expected to announce several new processors later today, and rumor has it a beastly Core i9-9980XE with 18 physical cores and 36 threads will be among them. The new chip is said to be part of Intel's next generation Core-X high-end desktop (HEDT) series and a refresh of Basin Falls. Rumor has it this launch will coincide with new 9th generation Core processors for the mainstream market. The latter is expected to include up to 8-core processor offerings, including the Core i7-9700K and Core i9-9900K. Typically there is a waiting period for new HEDT parts... Read more...
Intel has posted an invitation on Twitter for folks to tune into its live stream kicking off tomorrow, October 8, at 10 am. While Intel doesn’t specify what the live stream event will be about, this is certain to be the official launch of the company's new 9th gen Core Coffee Lake Refresh processors. Numerous leaks focusing on the new Coffee Lake CPUs have tipped alleged details on the parts, including pricing for the Core i9-9900k 9th Gen CPU; that leak claimed the Core i9-9900K would sell for $480. Specs tipped for the CPU include eight cores and 16 threads, putting it on par with AMD's... Read more...
