Intel wants to build ARM chips for Apple, third-parties

Intel wants to build ARM chips for Apple, third-parties

ARM has always been bad news for Intel, no matter how makes the silicon. With Qualcomm, Intel barely left a mark in the consumer mobile market. With Apple's new Silicon, its dominance in the desktop market, at least on Macs, is now being threatened. While it still holds onto its x86/x64 computing architecture, it seems that Intel has devised a strategy that will let it also profit from this ARM invasion, particularly by making the ARM-based chips that Apple and other customers need.

Intel Xe HPG discrete gaming graphics card might debut next week

Intel Xe HPG discrete gaming graphics card might debut next week

Intel has long been trying to convince both users and manufacturers that its graphics tech is all you need but that spiel has always fallen flat when it came to gaming and graphics-extensive applications. It wasn't until its most recent Intel Xe graphics architecture that that claim actually started to finally show some promise. That said, Intel's new graphics tech is still missing one critical market but that might change next week when the chipmaker finally reveals its Intel Xe HPG discrete graphics card made especially for gaming.

Intel convinced Justin Long to stop being A Mac

Intel convinced Justin Long to stop being A Mac

Intel hired Justin Long to do a few video spot/commercials for their next-generation devices. They make the processors that power a whole bunch of Windows computers, so it's in their interest to make those computers look cool. To do that, they've involved Justin Long, the actor that previously worked with Apple in those commercials where one guy would say "I'm a Mac" and the other would say "I'm a PC."

Dell XPS Desktop, Alienware Aurora R12 pick up Intel 11th-gen Core CPUs

Dell XPS Desktop, Alienware Aurora R12 pick up Intel 11th-gen Core CPUs

With the announcement of Intel's 11th-gen Core CPUs today, Dell wasted little time in announcing that it will be refreshing both the XPS Desktop and the Alienware Aurora R12 with the new processors. These new desktops are not only home to Intel's latest processors, but they could also be one of the easier ways to land a hard-to-find RTX 30-series graphics card, as at least the XPS Desktop's graphics options top out at an RTX 3070.

President Biden to take steps to ease semiconductor shortage in the US

Currently, there's a global shortage of semiconductors used in many industries that has seen some major industries in the US grind to a halt. The semiconductor shortage has particularly hit automakers in America hard, causing several major companies to cease production. The Biden administration has promised to make aggressive moves to address the global semiconductor shortage.

Old computers and phones age out of Chrome proper

Old computers and phones age out of Chrome proper

Soon devices running Chrome with x86 processors that do not support SSE3 will no longer be able to run said web browser. In a document made public all the way back in September of 2020, Google suggested that Chrome will indeed require SSE3 in the future, and that all platforms running x86 architecture without said SSE instruction set will crash Chrome and will not be able to install Chrome in the future.

Intel benchmark swipe at Apple Silicon M1 sounds a bit desperate

Intel benchmark swipe at Apple Silicon M1 sounds a bit desperate

Apple's M1 processor and Macs were undoubtedly the biggest tech news that closed last year. Its performance, especially for a first try at a desktop-class ARM-based processor, left many questioning Intel's supremacy in that space. There are, of course, still things that Apple's silicon may not be capable of at this time but that is also just a matter of time. Meanwhile, Intel is seemingly going on the offensive with a set of benchmarks that it claims show how actually inferior the Apple M1 is.

MediaTek M80 5G modem takes on Qualcomm with mmWave support

MediaTek M80 5G modem takes on Qualcomm with mmWave support

It's hard to argue that Qualcomm's 5G modems dominate the market, not just in phones but also in any computing or networking products that need to support the next-gen network. MediaTek, of course, didn't take that sitting down and has launched its own line of Dimensity mobile application processors or APs to give phone manufacturers another option, prompting Qualcomm to fire back with 5G-capable mid-range processors in the Snapdragon 6-series and even the 4-series. Now MediaTek is making the next move to strike at one area where Qualcomm used to be unchallenged, support for mmWave 5G.

Intel Iris Xe desktop graphics cards are here but you can’t have them yet

While Intel still holds the lion's share of the CPU market, it has never really been known to have any solid footing when it comes to the graphics department. Sure, its integrated GPUs power many a laptop or tablet but those still pale in comparison to even the mobile versions of NVIDIA's and AMD's chips. Intel has been making strides and heavily pushing its new Iris Xe architecture and now its first-ever discrete graphics cards for desktops have arrived, but you won't be able to buy them just yet.
