AMD Mac tipped in code (and Intel should be terrified)

AMD Mac tipped in code (and Intel should be terrified)

Code from the latest version of the MacOS suggests that future desktop machines from Apple may use AMD processors for future Mac computers. This could include MacBook Pro, iMac, Mac Pro, and iMac Pro, all of which currently use AMD graphics processors. This might be a big point of change for Apple with respect to Intel - if Apple drops Intel CPUs in favor of AMD CPU/GPU action, the boat shall be rocked.

Intel confirms Thunderbolt 4: Here’s what we know

Intel confirms Thunderbolt 4: Here’s what we know

As with its competitor AMD, hardware company Intel held a keynote event at CES 2020 yesterday. During its show, Intel talked about the systems that store, process, and move data and the wider technologies that will help facilitate this, including 5G networks and artificial intelligence. In addition to showing off its video technology, Project Athena, and more, the company slipped in an interesting mention: Thunderbolt 4.

Intel Horseshoe Bend prototype turns a 17-inch tablet into a 13-inch laptop

Contrary to earlier whispers, Intel wasn't shying away from foldable PCs because it found Windows 10X to still be unsuitable for the public's eyes. It did skip mentioning Microsoft's future Windows version but the CES 2020 crowd might not yet care about that, at least for now. They may be more interested in seeing foldable devices and Intel definitely had some to show, including its own take on a gigantic OLED screen that folds down into a more manageable laptop size.

New Acer Swift 3 ultraslim laptops offer Intel and AMD options

New Acer Swift 3 ultraslim laptops offer Intel and AMD options

For quite a few years, most of the new computers came out with Intel inside, mostly because of a lack of serious competition. With AMD's new Zen architecture, Intel's old rival has gotten back into the game and OEMs have once again started putting AMD processors right beside Intel's. That definitely seems to be the case with the new Acer Swift 3 series but while consumers may be able to choose between two competing processors, they aren't able to choose what comes with those.

Intel’s RealSense L515 makes affordable LIDAR a palm-sized reality

Intel’s RealSense L515 makes affordable LIDAR a palm-sized reality

Intel is adding a tiny LIDAR sensor to its RealSense range, claiming the Intel RealSense lidar camera L515 is the world's smallest laser rangefinder - not to mention one of the most affordable. Taking technology familiar from autonomous cars and robotics, the L515 then packages it down into a small enough form-factor that it could allow compact smart devices to scan the world in 3D.

Intel and MediaTek partner to make 5G modems for PCs

Intel and MediaTek partner to make 5G modems for PCs

Intel and MediaTek have teamed up to develop 5G modems for computers, Intel has announced. The two companies will work on the development, certification, and support of these 'solutions,' with Intel focusing on the 5G specification and MediaTek on the development and delivery of the 5G modems. The end result will be PCs that can connect to the budding 5G networks slowly spreading across the US.

Samsung Galaxy Book Ion revealed with striking simplicity, QLED display

Samsung revealed two new laptop lines today, bringing QLED display panels to laptops for the first time ever. In addition to the Samsung Galaxy Book Flex (which we've spoken of in a separate article), Samsung revealed the Samsung Galaxy Book Ion. The Ion is nearly as striking to see as its Flex brethren, with sharp corners and an "Aura Silver" color - with a hint of some deep, wild cool tones (blues, greens) for accent tones.

Intel Core i9-9900KS Special Edition launch details are finally here

Some people complain about the gap in time between a smartphone announcement and its availability but those have nothing on Intel when it comes to waiting periods. Never mind the 10nm delay, Intel promised the best gaming desktop processor back in May, which is now almost exactly five months ago. At long last, the chipmaker is spilling the last beans on its Core i9-9900KS Special Edition processor but you'll still have to wait two more days before scrambling to get this limited edition product.

Intel Tremont microarchitecture wants to win back tablets from ARM

Intel Tremont microarchitecture wants to win back tablets from ARM

There is a lot of excitement going on in the mobile computing space, be it phones, tablets, or especially those that straddle both worlds. All but one of these new devices, however, are unsurprisingly powered by an ARM chip from Qualcomm, Samsung, Huawei, or even Apple. As it stands, Intel has all but completely lost space and lost face in this segment of the market but it seems to be trying anew with its Tremont low-power x86 microarchitecture that could, unfortunately, bring up ghosts from its past.

Intel has quietly axed its weird combo chips with AMD graphics

Intel has quietly axed its weird combo chips with AMD graphics

Intel's oddball Kaby Lake-G chip collaboration with AMD is being axed, with the combo CPU and Radeon GPU product failing to catch the attention of laptop-makers. Announced back in late 2017, Kaby Lake-G came as an unexpected surprise: an 8th Gen Core processor from Intel, paired with custom AMD Radeon graphics, all in a single chip.

Microsoft needs Windows to succeed on ARM

Microsoft needs Windows to succeed on ARM

Microsoft's big 2019 event is just a few hours away and, thanks to some leaks, there are a lot of expectations coming into the Surface press conference. Even if it doesn't announce the fabled dual-screen Surface, a.k.a. codename "Centaurus", Microsoft will still make headlines if it does announce an ARM-powered Surface 2-in-1 tablet. This will hardly be Microsoft's first dance with ARM, even on its own Surface brand, and it will hardly be the last. But unlike the company's previous attempts, Microsoft has to make this one stick and has to make Windows work on the ARM platform. Not because Intel and AMD and the x86 CPU architecture are going anywhere but exactly because it isn't going anywhere at all.
