Intel’s 5GHz 28-core demo neglected one key detail

Intel’s 5GHz 28-core demo neglected one key detail

During Computex 2018, Intel demonstrated a 5GHz 28-core processor for workstations, but it failed to mention one important thing: the processor was overclocked. The demonstration, to those watching, appeared to show the offering operating with its stock speed, but that's not the case. Instead, Intel used an extreme setup with a water chiller to keep it from overheating.

Intel Tiger Rapids prototype notebooks feature dual screens

Intel Tiger Rapids prototype notebooks feature dual screens

Dual-screen laptops might just be the next trend in consumer PCs, at least if ASUS, Lenovo, and Intel have their way. While smartphone makers are still stumped by the foldable display puzzle, laptop makers don’t have that same problem. They can have two screens separated by a hinge and can even have those two screens be of different types. That’s definitely the idea behind Intel’s Tiger Rapids, a prototype dual-screen notebook that has a regular LCD screen on one side and stylus-enabled e-paper display on the other.

Intel’s 5GHz Core i7-8086K, low power displays wow at Computex reveals

This year marks Intel's 50th anniversary, and in celebration, the company showed up to Computex 2018 with a lot of announcements to make. While these announcements encompass a lot of different technologies, they all revolve one product that's been core to Intel's business for many decades: the PC. Specifically, Intel is looking to improve the PC as the platform that people turn to when they need to roll up their sleeves and get some work done.

Apple “Star”, new Windows ARM PCs: why you’ll want one eventually

Apple “Star”, new Windows ARM PCs: why you’ll want one eventually

As far as personal computing, that is, desktops and laptops, goes, Intel has the lion's share of the market. In terms of computer architecture, x86 (and x64) still dominate what most consumers will consider to be the "serious" kind of computers, despite how ARM-based devices, thanks to smartphones, actually win by the numbers. But, as they say, change is coming and this change has a name: ARM. ARM-based PCs have already started rolling out and Macs might soon be next. But is this new breed of computers really worth the hype? They are, but only if the market gives them time to grow a bit.

Acer Swift 5 slims down, gets bigger display for 2018

Acer announced a ton of new Chromebooks during its New York press conference today, but if you weren't swayed by those, then you might want to have a look at the new Swift 5 notebook. Developed with portability in mind, the Swift 5 might be a better choice than one of Acer's new Chromebooks if you're looking for something with a little more power.

Variant 4 vulnerability: Spectre continues to haunt Intel, AMD, ARM

Variant 4 vulnerability: Spectre continues to haunt Intel, AMD, ARM

2018 immediately started off on the wrong foot for Intel and, consequently, the computing industry at large. Meltdown and Spectre vulnerabilities plagued modern processors, mostly from Intel but also from its rivals, even on some ARM chips. They can never be fully fixed without an entirely new CPU architecture, so all we're left with are mitigations to lessen the probability of an exploit. Even so, new variants still arise and a fourth one based on Spectre has just been found. Fortunately, at least for now, Intel says there's little reason to panic.

Project Kinect for Azure is Microsoft’s AI sensor gift to devs

Kinect is back, and it wants to make the Internet of Things smarter and less reliant on the cloud. Microsoft has taken the wraps off Project Kinect for Azure today at Build 2018, its annual developer event, and if you thought uses for the fiendishly clever depth-sensing camera began and ended with Xbox gaming, think again.

Intel 10nm roadblock delays Cannon Lake again

Intel's much-anticipated "Cannon Lake" processors have been delayed, with the chip-maker confirming that its next-generation CPUs now won't be hitting volume production this year. The new chips rely on Intel's equally-new 10 nanometer production process, which the company has been particularly upbeat about, but which itself has experienced some significant delays.
