Future iPhones could use Intel’s 5G modem instead of Qualcomm’s

Future iPhones could use Intel’s 5G modem instead of Qualcomm’s

The battle between component suppliers for the next iPhones has just entered its next phase, and Qualcomm might be left behind in the dust. Intel has just proudly announced that they have reached a key milestone in the development of its 5G modem that takes it close to catching up with Qualcomm. But, perhaps more importantly, it puts Intel in a more favorable position to be Apple’s go-to 5G partner, at a time when several market factors seem to be conspiring against Qualcomm.

Intel and AMD team on potent gaming chipset

Intel and AMD team on potent gaming chipset

Intel and AMD have teamed up unexpectedly to make a brand new chipset that puts AAA gaming performance into more portable laptops. Though the two companies have been long-standing foes, battling for dominance in desktop and notebook processors, this new addition to the 8th Gen Intel Core family has Intel's CPU but a custom AMD GPU. They're joined by a new bridge specially designed to speed up intercommunications.

iPhones and iPads next year to completely ditch Qualcomm chips

iPhones and iPads next year to completely ditch Qualcomm chips

When you take each other to court, you best be prepared for the fallout outside of the courtroom. Lawsuits cut both ways, as Apple and Qualcomm are finding out. The two have been throwing accusations at each other over business practices and pricing and that might soon have a substantial effect on iPhone and iPad users next year. Sources are saying that Apple is working towards ridding next year’s mobile devices of any trace of Qualcomm, eying to replace it with modems from Intel and MediaTek instead.

Intel’s Optane consumer SSDs make rip-roaring speed mainstream

Intel’s Optane consumer SSDs make rip-roaring speed mainstream

Intel's first Optane SSD has hit shelves, and if you're all about super-speed storage then your mouth might be watering. The Intel Optane SSD 900P Series stores up to 280 GB in its 2.5-inch format, or more if you've space in your PC for a half-height add-in card. More importantly than raw capacity, however, is how quickly that storage is accessed.

Intel, Mobileye formula can determine who to blame in self-driving car accidents

Intel, Mobileye formula can determine who to blame in self-driving car accidents

Intel may have scaled down or even axed some of its extracurricular activities, like wearables and IoT, but it isn’t yet backing down from down from one of those: autonomous vehicles. After acquiring Mobileye just recently, the chip maker has double down on its involvement in making the self-driving car dream come true. It’s latest contribution, curiously, is a mathematical formula that it claims will offer a more or less standard way to not only ensure driving safety but also assign responsibility for when accidents do happen.

Intel’s new 17-qubit chip marches toward the quantum computing future

Intel’s new 17-qubit chip marches toward the quantum computing future

Two years ago, Intel announced a partnership worth $50 million with a company called QuTech. Together, the two committed to pushing forward with quantum computing research, but ever since then, we haven't heard much about their progress. Today that all changes, with Intel announcing the delivery of a new 17-qubit to QuTech, a move it says "demonstrates the fast progress Intel and QuTech are making in researching and developing a working quantum computing system."

HP Spectre 13 and x360 notebooks get redesigned for 2017

Today, HP revealed new models in its line of Spectre 13 notebooks. With an eye to design, these new notebooks - the standard Spectre 13 and the Spectre x360 13 - are launching later this month and will become the regular 13-inch offerings in HP’s premium lineup. In developing both, HP said that it took listened closely to customer feedback about its premium models, so hopefully any criticisms you may have had about last year’s Spectres have been addressed in these new releases.

8th gen Intel Core desktop processors launched for gamers, creators

8th gen Intel Core desktop processors launched for gamers, creators

Smartphones and tablets may have cannibalized a large chunk of the PC market, but there is still one segment where the venerable desktop remains unchallenged: gaming and content creation. Unsurprisingly, Intel is working overtime to cater to these user groups, as can be clearly seen in its launched of its new generation of desktop processors. Billed as being designed for what's coming next, the new 8th gen Core i7, i5, and down to the i3 are being marketed with higher frame rates, more immersive experiences, and more control over performance.

Intel’s Project Alloy standalone VR headset is dead

Intel’s Project Alloy standalone VR headset is dead

It's been quite some time since we last heard from Intel's Project Alloy. The VR headset was first revealed last year and was intended to be an open reference for other manufacturers who wanted to make their own VR headsets. Though Project Alloy was an impressive and promising standalone VR headset, Intel announced today that it will be pulling the plug on the initiative.

Intel and Waymo just made a self-driving car behemoth

Waymo just gained itself a pretty big companion in its quest to tackle autonomous vehicles. Today Intel announced that it will be joining Waymo in developing technologies for self-driving cars. Specifically, Intel believes it can provide Waymo with the processing power it needs to create level 4 and level 5 autonomous vehicles.

Intel WiGig products are dead, long live Intel WiGig for VR

Intel WiGig products are dead, long live Intel WiGig for VR

If you haven’t heard of WiGig yet, don’t fret. It might not matter anymore anyway. Advertised by the Wi-Fi Alliance last year as the future of Wi-Fi and the IoT industry, WiGig just lost one of its biggest supporters. Well, somewhat. Intel has just told partners that it will be discontinuing controllers and cards for what is formally known as 802.11ad Wi-FI. That said, what it isn’t saying, formally or otherwise, is that it may still plan to use WiGig for making wireless VR headsets not only possible but also usable.
