Intel suggests that they are no discussing product roadmaps or financial terms at this time. Ascending Technologies is a German company that appeared at last year's Intel/Brian Krzanich keynote at CES 2015.

Intel has new chips with some odd model numbers

Intel has new chips with some odd model numbers

Intel is just in the middle of its regular processor release cadence but that doesn't mean it won't be launching some new chips in between. It has, in fact, added a total of 8 new processors, not only for its new 6th gen Skylake family but even for the previous line of Broadwell chips. Intel even has two new ultra-low voltage Celeron processors. The list, however, is populated by six chips whose model numbers are either rare or, in one case, has never been seen before.

Aftermarket Skylake coolers are damaging Intel CPUs

Aftermarket Skylake coolers are damaging Intel CPUs

If you're assembling your own PC, there are a lot of decisions to make. One of which is whether you'll keep the stock CPU cooler, or opt for something a little beefier (and possibly quieter). Unfortunately, if you have an Intel Skylake processor, you're probably going to want to stick with the stock cooler, lest you risk damaging this primary component.

Intel develops ‘Smart Tiny House’, an IoT living lab

Intel develops ‘Smart Tiny House’, an IoT living lab

Tiny homes are all the rage, at least in certain parts of the country, hailed as a way to minimize one's impact on the planet, keep personal costs low, and utilize resources more efficiently. Tiny houses are also often viewed as a sacrifice, requiring one to give up many modern-day conveniences and necessities. Intel disagrees, and has built it own tiny house, packing it full of the latest and greatest smart technology to showcase what is possible.

FreedomPop, Intel’s Wi-Fi first smartphone takes on Google Fi

FreedomPop, Intel’s Wi-Fi first smartphone takes on Google Fi

Google's Project Fi was more than the MVNO that people have been expecting, at least based on earlier rumors. Instead of a simple, directly mobile service that would compete with carriers, Project Fi made a tempting proposition: a service that automatically switched back and forth between paid cellular connection and free Wi-Fi depending on the latter's availability. That is the new paradigm that FreedomPop and Intel are chasing after in a partnership that will see not only a new service to compete with Project Fi but a new smartphone as well.

Intel wants its LTE modem to be in the next iPhone

Intel wants its LTE modem to be in the next iPhone

Intel is not a name you'd immediately associate with a smartphone. Although the Intel-powered ASUS ZenFone 2 managed to garner a few accolades even in performance, it is still just one in an ocean filled with devices running on the competing ARM CPU architecture. Still trying its luck in that smartphone market, insider sources claim that the chip maker is trying a slightly different strategy. It is said to have allocated 1,000 people into making its high-end LTE modem something that Apple won't be able to ignore for its 2016 iPhone model.

Intel Curie chip arrives on Arduino 101 board

Intel Curie chip arrives on Arduino 101 board

First revealed almost a year ago at CES 2015, Intel's low-power Curie chip is finally becoming available on its first development board, the new Arduino 101. Up until now, Curie has mostly been used in things like wearables, along with the occasional odd product. But now that it's coming to the open-source Arduino platform, students and hobbyist makers can take advantage of its sensors and connectivity options.
