Intel chip flaw allowed hackers to watch you browse the web

There's a flaw in the vast majority of Intel chips from here back to the year 2011 called ZombieLoad. That's what security researchers are calling it, anyway. The name refers to data a processor cannot handle, a "zombie load" which can be exploited thanks to a code vulnerability in Intel hardware.

Intel 10nm chips finally ready to ship next month, 7nm in two years

Intel 10nm chips finally ready to ship next month, 7nm in two years

It may have long thrown in the mobile and IoT towels and just recently yielded its 5G stake, but Intel arguably remains the most important CPU maker in the computing market. Just ask the OEMs, including Apple, whose products and sales were impacted by Intel supply shortages. That's why the market is now probably both excited yet also cautious after Intel revealed its roadmap for the next three years, including the long-delayed shipment of 10nm CPUs.

Apple hired Intel 5G lead before settling with Qualcomm

Apple hired Intel 5G lead before settling with Qualcomm

Apple and Qualcomm may have legally settled their differences, but that doesn't mean that the two are suddenly best friends. In fact, a settlement means that some of the strategies both parties employed during the lawsuit can finally come to light. Apple was recently reported to have been allegedly preparing for Qualcomm's downfall long before their tussle but this latest tidbit reveals how it may have also been preparing for the demise of Intel's 5G modem business.

Intel tipped in talks to sell its modem chip business

Now that Apple and Qualcomm are friends again, Intel has abandoned its 5G modem plans and is, according to a new leak, considering the sale of its modem chip business. The news, which is unconfirmed at this time, follows Intel's announcement that it will not continue in its effort to launch a 5G cellular modem in 2020. The leak also claims Apple had considered purchasing Intel's chip business.

Intel’s 9th-gen mobile CPUs look to beef up laptop gaming, content creation

Back in October, Intel announced the ninth-generation of its Core desktop processors, introducing us to one in particular - the Core i9-9900K - that could reach 5GHz boost clock speeds. Today, Intel is bringing that same kind of capability to its mobile line of processors, launching the 9th-gen H-series. The Core i9-9980HK leads the charge, once again being capable of hitting 5GHz when using Intel's Thermal Velocity Boost.

Intel quits 5G smartphone modems after Apple Qualcomm deal

Only hours after Apple revealed that it has reached a deal with Qualcomm that will settle the companies' various legal disputes comes a big announcement from Intel: it is dropping its 5G cellular modem plans. This ends Intel's goal of launching its 5G modem next year, though the company says it will still meet its existing 4G modem commitments. The decision comes only months after Intel said it was speeding up its 5G modem plans.

Intel Optane Memory H10 promises super fast SSDs in laptops, mini PCs

Intel Optane Memory H10 promises super fast SSDs in laptops, mini PCs

Intel may be best known for its CPUs but the company has also dabbled in other markets where its silicon prowess could be used. Although it has pretty much failed in producing a noteworthy graphics card, it's making quite an impression in the flash memory department with Optane. Now it is combining two of its best technologies in the Intel Optane Memory H10 with solid-state storage to give laptops, 2-in-1s, all-in-ones, and mini PCs an edge in data storage and access.

DJI Tello Iron Man Edition drone promises Avengers aerial gameplay

DJI Tello Iron Man Edition drone promises Avengers aerial gameplay

Earlier this year, Ryze Tech debuted a new drone that was centered around being small in size and affordable in price. Though the $99 price Tello was targeting certainly put it in the budget drone range, it was backed by some big names. Specifically, the Tello drone was made using technology from both Intel and DJI. Today, Tello announced something of a follow up to that first drone, and it's got another big company in its corner for this release: Marvel.

Intel quietly gives up its modular Compute Card dream

Intel is quietly discontinuing its Compute Cards, the credit card-sized modular computing platform that it once positioned as the solution to laptop and all-in-one PC upgrades. The Compute Card system was first launched in 2017, each containing a processor, memory, and storage.

Intel’s AI cop will tackle toxic gamers

Intel’s AI cop will tackle toxic gamers

Most of us have probably experienced toxicity in one form or another while gaming online, and it's a problem that doesn't seem to be getting any better. In-game toxicity is bad enough in games where you have to pay to play, but in free to play games, the number of unsavory folks one encounters can seem to quickly grow out of control. Most developers, of course, implement in-game reporting systems and teams of people to dole out punishments for toxicity, but now Intel is looking at ways that AI can help.

Intel Nervana Spring Crest NNP cards photographed in early state

Intel Nervana Spring Crest NNP cards photographed in early state

Intel Nervana is the company's neural network processor (NNP) brand, relatively newly commercial-facing and already quite powerful. Thus far no Intel Nervana hardware's been widely available - but that ends with the Intel Nervana NNP-L1000, the company's first commercial NNP chip. Today we've got a couple photos of the most basic, but at least basically functional, bits of commercial Nervana in the L1000, codenamed Spring Crest.

Intel Xe graphics card hardware, Graphics Command Center aim for NVIDIA, AMD

Graphics card sales have long been dominated by two companies - but that might well be about to change. Intel held an inaugural event for its new program called The Odyssey at GDC 2019 this week. This program is made to connect Intel with enthusiast users - gamers particularly, but other high-end hardware buyers, too. They got the opportunity to see the first Intel graphics card in a very brief set of slides.
