Intel Atom accelerates: Cedar Trail for netbooks, Medfield for sub-9mm gaming tablets

It's not just Ultrabooks that Intel is pushing at Computex this year: the chip company also has Atom news to share. That concerns Cedar Trail and a Moore's Law outpacing shift to a yearly die-shrink schedule: Intel reckons Atom chips will shift through the 32nm of Cedar Trail, past 22nm, and hit 12nm within three successive years. Technically impressive, but for the consumer it should mean significant gains in power and battery life. Meanwhile, there's also Medfield news for tablets and smartphones.

Intel Ultrabook debuts: sub-$1k Sandy/Ivy Bridge ultraportables

Intel isn't willing to let ARM grab all the ultraportable mindshare, and the chip behemoth has obviously decided that some judicious rebranding is what's needed. At Computex 2011 day one, Intel announced its new Ultrabook segment, initially using second-gen Sandy Bridge Core processors (before graduating to 22nm Ivy Bridge chips in early 2012) in sub-0.8-inch thick chassis and with "mainstream price points" that come in under $1,000. Intel expects Ultrabooks to account for 40-percent of consumer laptop sales by the end of 2012, with the first models on the market in time for the 2011 holiday season.

iMac with Retina 5K Display Review – Powerful Pixels

iMac with Retina 5K Display Review – Powerful Pixels

It takes a lot to stand out in tech these days, but the 2014 iMac with Retina 5K display manages it. Fronted by a frankly astonishing number of very, very pleasing pixels, it’s the all-in-one that’s already luring many away from the Mac Pro order page.

In that vein, Apple tired of waiting for a 5K display and so created one itself, turning the now-familiar iMac design into something altogether more special.
