Surface Go 2 specs are going to disappoint hopeful fans

Surface Go 2 specs are going to disappoint hopeful fans

Microsoft axed the Surface Mini, which turned out to be a real device, even before it saw the light of day. Four years later, it came out with a larger and very different Surface Go that was meant to be the company's on-the-go Windows solution and it was well-received, being compared with Apple's iPad Pro. It has taken Microsoft two years to come out with a successor but while the wait might finally be over, those hoping for a more decent upgrade will be sorely disappointed, at least based on these initial leaks.

Companies are trying to train AI to do all sorts of things, but a team at Intel has been attempting to train AI to something unorthorodox for a computer: smell. Researchers from Intel Labs and Cornell University have announced that Intel's neuromorphic research chip, dubbed Loihi, is able to "learn and recognize hazardous chemicals," through algorithms that mimic the brain's olfactory system.

GPD WIN Max shown running The Witcher 3 thanks to 10th Gen Intel Core CPU

Technology and manufacturing have truly come a long way if an 8-inch "laptop" can run AAA games. At least that's the idea that China-based GPD (GamePad Digital) is trying to make with its biggest and most ambitious product to date. The GPD WIN Max aims to combine the best of both worlds in a small size and while the demonstration might be impressive, there is still one important question that remains unaddressed.

Intel CSME flaw: 5 years of chips have a truly ominous, unfixable flaw

This week a report showed an "unfixable" flaw in the Intel Converged Security and Management Engine (CSME) in Intel chips. This flaw exists in essentially every piece of Intel-released silicon from the last half-decade. A brief report was released by the folks at Positive Technologies today which aims to make the world aware of the flaw ahead of their full white paper report.

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 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 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.
