Intel wants Thunderbolt 3 everywhere, release royalty-free spec

Intel wants Thunderbolt 3 everywhere, release royalty-free spec

Just when you thought the industry has settled down on adopting USB-C as the one connector to rule them all, Intel comes along using its industry clout to push another thing forward. Unlike its predecessors, however, Thunderbolt 3 is fortunately based on USB-C, making it possible to use the same type of connection for both, just like in the latest MacBook Pros. And if Intel has its way, Thunderbolt 3 will be in every desktop, laptop, or computing device, thanks to its generous but also aggressive campaign.

Intel takes drastic measures to keep Thunderbolt 3 alive

Intel takes drastic measures to keep Thunderbolt 3 alive

Intel is baking Thunderbolt 3 into its new chips and ditching licensing fees, in order to avoid adoption of the high-speed connection stuttering to a halt. The processor company said today that it will make it much easier - particularly more affordable - for third-party hardware companies to embrace Thunderbolt 3, the multi-purpose cable which can deliver data, video, and power over a single connection. The move has already won approval from Apple and Microsoft.

Intel, BMW, Mobileye add Delphi to autonomous car tech super-group

Intel, BMW, Mobileye add Delphi to autonomous car tech super-group

Three titans in the technology and automotive industries have announced that they'll be joining forces. Intel, the BMW Group, and the folks at Mobileye have announced that they will onboard Delphi as a development partner for their autonomous driving platform. This comes after a July 2016 announcement that Intel, BMW, and Mobileye would be joining forces for autonomous vehicles - with Delphi, the dream of self-driving cars takes another step closer to reality.

Samsung, Intel lend support to FTC’s Qualcomm lawsuit

Samsung, Intel lend support to FTC’s Qualcomm lawsuit

Chip maker Qualcomm has been having a rough couple of months, not only getting sued by Apple — one of its largest customers — for unfair licensing costs, but also being accused of anti-competitive tactics by the Federal Trade Commission. In the case of the latter, now some of Qualcomm's biggest rivals have chimed in, offering statements to the FTC in support of their monopoly accusations.

Loomo Go is an autonomous delivery robot from Segway

Loomo Go is an autonomous delivery robot from Segway

Intel recently took to the stage to introduce Loomo Go, an autonomous delivery robot created by Segway Robotics. The robot can be operated like an actual Segway, at least per the demonstration by Intel CEO Brian Krzanich, but it is much more than that. Using various technologies, Loomo is able to perceive the world around it and operate through it, doing so as part of an overall delivery process to bring humans objects.

In Delphi’s latest self-driving car, aggression is an option

In Delphi’s latest self-driving car, aggression is an option

Intel's autonomous car plans aren't pie in the sky, and there are already driverless vehicles using the company's technologies plying the public roads. Vehicle tech supplier Delphi, a mainstay in the automotive manufacturing world, brought along its latest self-driving prototype to Intel's Autonomous Vehicle Showcase in its new San Jose, CA facility, and offered to take me for a spin. Funnily enough, what's most special, you can't actually see.

Inside Intel’s big plan to seize the wheel in self-driving cars

Inside Intel’s big plan to seize the wheel in self-driving cars

Autonomous driving is coming, and unsurprisingly Intel believes it should be at the heart of it. At the former Altera facility in San Jose, California, the company better known for powering your laptop and PC outlined its vision for driverless cars over the coming years. While collaboration is the name of Intel's game, make no mistake: it sees this as a prime opportunity to sell more silicon.

Intel axes Intel Developer Forum by canceling IDF17

Intel axes Intel Developer Forum by canceling IDF17

There's big news coming out of Intel today, but it's probably not news that most will want to hear: Intel has decided to quit hosting the Intel Developer Forum, otherwise known as IDF. The conference took place at multiple locations around the world each year and focused on Intel's products. Intel's announcement today unfortunately ends a 20 year run for the show, which started way back in 1997.

Google’s TPU taking on Intel and NVIDIA for Neural Networking’s future

Google’s TPU taking on Intel and NVIDIA for Neural Networking’s future

Google is seeking a new way to make neural networking work efficiently - starting with the TPU. The TPU is a Tensor Processing Unit - to be compared to Intel's CPU or NVIDIA's GPU, made for processing data. Google's news here is their first-ever study published on how well their TPU works - compared, appropriately enough, to Intel's CPU and NVIDIA's GPU whilst neural networking.

Intel brings Optane Memory storage to desktops with a caveat

Intel brings Optane Memory storage to desktops with a caveat

If you're a desktop user still green with envy from Intel's big Optane announcement last week, you can now revert to your regular color just a wee bit. Intel is now bringing that same ultra fast memory technology to the desktop, but not in the way you might think. Last week's announcement was about bringing Intel Optane SSDs to servers and workstations. This week, Intel is bringing Optane Memory to desktops in limited capacities of 16 and 32 GB not to replace your SSD or HDD but to supplement it.

Intel Optane SSD finally launches, for enterprise only

Intel Optane SSD finally launches, for enterprise only

For all the leaps that computing technology has made of late, data storage remains the bottleneck of performance and hasn’t evolved significantly of late. Sure, SSDs are faster than HDDs, but it seems we’re stuck on those. Two years ago, Intel and Micron said “not anymore”, and the first consumable fruits of that labor has finally landed. Introducing the Intel Optane SSD DC 4800X, the first commercially available “3D XPoint” SSD. Sadly, it’s not something you can buy off shelves, unless you happen to be a well-financed business.

Intel buys up Mobileye to boost autonomous driving efforts

Intel buys up Mobileye to boost autonomous driving efforts

Intel just became a bigger player in the realm of autonomous driving, announcing its planned acquisition of Mobileye today. If you've been following the rise of autonomous cars, you've likely already heard of Mobileye, as it has been developing machine learning and computer vision systems for self-driving cars. With Intel's increasing interest in the autonomous driving space, it makes Mobileye a pretty good acquisition target.
