Intel finally has an 8th Gen Core i3 for cheaper laptops

Intel has finally added an entry-level 8th Generation processor to its line-up, opening the door to more affordable new laptops and 2-in-1s with the latest silicon. The chip-maker's 8th Gen Core i5 and Core i7 processors have been spreading through notebooks and desktops since all the way back in August 2017, but Intel's staggered launch has left some odd gaps in the line-up.

Winter Olympics opening ceremony sees Intel use record 1,218 drones

The 2018 Winter Olympics kicked-off in Pyeongchang, South Korea yesterday, and like any Olympics event, it began with a big, flashy opening ceremony. This time around it included a light show performance from Intel that used a record-setting 1,218 drones, all flying in sync to create imagery including the interlocking Olympic rings and sports events like snowboarding.

Vaunt smart glasses: The 5 Glasshole lessons Intel learned

Vaunt smart glasses: The 5 Glasshole lessons Intel learned

Intel's Vaunt smart glasses are real, and they're arguably the most realistic vision of how wearable computing can escape the "Glasshole" reputation. Fruit of the chip-maker's efforts to develop super-low-power processors for lightweight headsets, they may look like regular fashion frames but there's a laser surprise hidden inside. Just as important as what Vaunt's smart glasses can do, though, is the ways in which Intel has tried to circumnavigate its ill-fated predecessors.

2018 iPhone tipped to dump Qualcomm completely

2018 iPhone tipped to dump Qualcomm completely

Apple's ongoing spat with Qualcomm will have a big impact on the modem-maker's fortunes this year, with suggestions that every 2018 iPhone will jump ship to use Intel hardware instead. It's the latest installment of a long-lasting legal and contractual argument between the Cupertino company and what has been one of the most significant chipset providers for its smartphones. That battle culminated in a huge $1.2bn fine leveled at Qualcomm by the European Commission in January.

Intel’s Vaunt smart glasses are real (and real discreet)

Intel’s Vaunt smart glasses are real (and real discreet)

Intel's Vaunt smart glasses aren't Augmented Reality, they're not entertainment-changing Virtual Reality, and they're definitely not Google Glass. What they are, we've discovered today, is a set of spectacles that look pretty much like regular eyeglasses. That's entirely by design, and Intel's Vaunt team has apparently worked hard to pare back the tech glitz in order to hit some essentials.

Intel smart glasses tipped for 2018 in cunning AR plan

Intel smart glasses tipped for 2018 in cunning AR plan

Intel could launch consumer smart glasses as soon as this year, though the chip-maker is hoping to let someone else take the reins in the AR wearable battle against Apple and others. The chip-maker has quietly been working on augmented reality eyewear for some time now, developing glasses which can overlay digital information atop the wearer's vision. Indeed, according to a new report it has already inked a deal with Quanta to actually manufacture the glasses.

2018 Apple roadmap leak tips more custom Mac chips

Apple plans to release at least three new Mac models in 2018 that will include custom co-processor chips developed in-house, new reports suggest. The Cupertino firm has long been an Intel partner when it comes to its Mac notebooks and desktops. However, in recent years Apple has been turning its newfound mobile chipset expertise to desktop use.

Microsoft undoes Intel’s buggy Spectre fix with emergency patch

Microsoft undoes Intel’s buggy Spectre fix with emergency patch

Microsoft undoing an Intel processor patch might seem unlikely, but that's just what an emergency update for Windows is doing because of Spectre reboots. Reports among Windows users of their PCs becoming unstable and rebooting randomly underscored quite how badly Intel's Spectre security fix had got things, with Microsoft now forced to issue an emergency Windows patch that rolls back the processor company's handiwork.

Intel: Spectre and Meltdown-proof CPUs coming this year

Intel plans to have versions of its processors directly addressing the Spectre and Meltdown security flaws on the market later this year, the chip-maker has confirmed today. News on the processor update came during the earnings call with Intel CEO Brian Krzanich, after the company announced better-than-expected results for Q4 2017.

Intel messed up its chance at redemption from Meltdown, Spectre

Intel messed up its chance at redemption from Meltdown, Spectre

Grownups love to throw nuggets of wisdom like “haste makes waste” or “pride comes before a fall”. But apparently, you reach a certain stage where you might feel exempt from those. And then everything falls apart. Intel may have started thinking that way and is now reaping the unsavory fruits. It did promptly roll out patches to address the Meltdown and Spectre vulnerabilities that threaten nearly all of the computing industry but it turns out that the cure is just as bad as the disease. And now Intel is asking OEMs to hold off on applying a Spectre patch that is causing computers to randomly reboot.

Intel’s Spectre and Meltdown advice just changed over reboot issues

Intel’s Spectre and Meltdown advice just changed over reboot issues

If you were about to install Intel's fix for Spectre and Meltdown, don't be so fast: the chip company is advising those with certain processors to avoid the security patches currently available. Intel began pushing out fixes along with the help of its system partners earlier this month, as it tried to deal with the twin security issues identified by Google Project Zero and others. However, that process hasn't been entirely smooth-running.
