ASUS dropped over a dozen new Intel-powered PCs, one Intel Evo laptop

Intel isn't having a great 2020 both in terms of business and image, and it isn't completely the fault of COVID-19 alone. It took quite a big PR hit when Apple announced its ARM-based Silicon coming to Macs which served to magnify Intel's much-discussed limitations when it comes to power efficiency and mobility. Its response is its 11th-gen Core processors and Intel Evo branding. Intel got its PC partners to back it up and ASUS may have just gone overboard with no less than 13 new computers.

Samsung Galaxy Book Flex 5G joins the new Intel EVO army

Despite the name and the proximity of its announcement to the Galaxy Z Fold 2, it might be too easy to think of the Galaxy Book Flex 5G as Samsung's take on a foldable laptop.

Intel Core i9-10850K seems an awful lot like the 10900K

Intel today is adding a new CPU to its Comet Lake Core i9 lineup, officially revealing the Core i9-10850K. As Intel's numbering scheme would suggest, the 10850K is a bit underpowered compared to the i9-10900K, but not by much. In fact, it seems that the 10850K is only slightly less capable than the i9-10900K.

Intel 7nm delayed again: Chipmaker admits embarrassing slide

Intel earnings released this afternoon showed a bit of a change in the company's outlook for chip manufacturing.
