Apple and Intel reportedly tap 3nm chip tech for 2022 iPad and laptops

Apple and Intel could launch chips based on cutting-edge 3-nanometer production as soon as 2022, industry sources claim, with both companies said to have jumped on TSMC's next-gen processes. Though it'll be some time before 3nm is the standard for processors, the promise is a cut in power consumption while at the same time boosting performance.

New 14 and 16-inch MacBook Pro tipped for Q3 2021

The next two MacBook Pro computers were the subject of a report this week from China on Mini LED production. The devices will quite likely replace the otherwise most-recent 13-inch MacBook Pro, complete with a further move away from Intel and toward Apple-made chips in smart devices across the board. Reports also suggest that the next MacBook Pro units will likely be revealed in late September of 2021, just before the next iPhone and Apple Watch.

New Razer Blade 14 is the brand’s first AMD laptop

New Razer Blade 14 is the brand’s first AMD laptop

Although it may be best known for its PC gaming accessories, Razer has also long played in the mainstream PC market, particularly with its Blade line of gaming laptops. For years, however, its different models have had one thing in common other than the brand. They were all powered by Intel processors. Perhaps much to Intel's disappointment, Razer is breaking from that mold as well and is introducing the new Razer Blade 14, its first-ever gaming rig to come with an AMD processor instead.

macOS Monterey on Intel Macs won’t be able to use some features

macOS Monterey on Intel Macs won’t be able to use some features

Although Apple would love to only sell Macs with its own chips, it hasn't completely dropped the ball on its Intel-based hardware, at least not immediately. That inevitable future will eventually come but most probably presumed it would be a slow journey. It is both surprising and unsurprising at the same time that Apple is getting the ball rolling as early as macOS Monterey later this year. It turns out that some of the release's big features will only be available to M1 Macs after all.

Arm v9 CPUs and new Mali GPUs try to steer computing away from Intel

Arm v9 CPUs and new Mali GPUs try to steer computing away from Intel

Apple's launch of its M1 Silicon and the following M1 Macs and iPad Pros has definitely raised questions about Intel's future in the personal computing space. Arm-based computers, not just phones, have suddenly become more interesting but their numbers and performance, especially on the Windows side, haven't exactly been that impressive. Some might say that Arm processors still have a long way to go but Arm's latest v9 generation of Cortex processors and Mali GPUs might be heading in that direction.

Windows ramps defenses against cryptojacking – what’s that?

Windows ramps defenses against cryptojacking – what’s that?

Microsoft released a note this week about how they've been working on defending against cryptojacking for your computer. Cryptojacking is a term describing a malicious attacker, a hacker, using your computer to mine cryptocurrency. Your computer's processing power - and potentially your internet data, if you're not on an "unlimited" plan - for their own profit, without your knowledge. This is bad, and Microsoft working to defend Windows against cryptojacking is good.
