Haswell 4th Generation Intel Core launch set for June 4th

Though the code-named "Haswell" generation of Intel Core processors has been finding itself the subject of reports and detail talks from the company that makes it for many, many months, it's today that the 4th generation of Intel processors gets its official ushering in to the public. This June 4th - that's just a couple days away - marks the point at which Intel suggests it's time to upgrade the innards of the generation of "2-in-1" computing: that's convertible computers - flipping screens, removable displays, and everything in-between.

iPhone 5S “Retina 2″ and iPad maxi the latest Apple rumor-grist

Apple is thinking bigger for its next-gen iPhone and iPad models, according to rumors filtering out of Asia, with chatter of an "iPad maxi" alongside a far-higher-resolution iPhone 5S in the coming months.

WD and SanDisk ship TARDIS-like Black solid-state hybrid drive

Pairing flash storage and traditional spinning-platter drives for the best of both worlds isn't new, but SanDisk and WD think they're collectively on to a winner with the newly-shipping WD Black SSHD.

Touch-notebooks to suck some tablet sting from Post-PC says NPD

However, a new breed of touch-enabled notebooks will step in to help arrest some of the slump.

Intel's 4th-gen Core processors will also debut a brand new Iris graphics system, with the chip company splitting its new line-up into multiple tiers for ultrabooks, thin-and-lights, and mainstream PCs. Ultrabooks powered by the most frugal of Intel's 4th-generation Haswell chips, the U-Series, will get Intel HD, HD Graphics 4600, or HD Graphics 5000, but those machines that can stand a little extra power consumption will get either Iris (for thin-and-lights) or Iris Pro (for mainstream) for at least a doubling in 3D processing performance.
