Intel Pohoiki Beach crams 64 Loihi neuromorphic chips for AI and IoT

Although Intel is often criticized for failing to scale its chips down to ARM's level of energy efficiency, it still has the edge when it comes to raw processing power when TDP is not much of an issue. That's especially applicable in research fields where the main concern is, to some extent, trying to make computers replicate how the human brain works. It's for that exact purpose that Intel has developed its Loihi "neuromorphic" research chip that it has now put on a specialized system to provide the processing needs of special applications ranging from research to AI to IoT.

Microsoft has a brighter future in mobile computing with Windows on ARM than x86

Microsoft has a brighter future in mobile computing with Windows on ARM than x86

Rumors about a Surface with an ARM processor has fans both excited and skeptical. That wouldn’t be Microsoft’s first dance with ARM, not even its first ARM-based Surface computer. In almost all cases since the first Surface, Windows on ARM has ended up being a disappointment.

It is almost as if the computing gods were sending Microsoft a not so subtle message to stick with Intel and ARM or, in general, the x86/64 architecture. That may be the easy way out, but it won’t last for long. For better or worse, and Intel certainly won’t like it, Microsoft needs to move heaven and earth to make Windows work perfectly on ARM because its future there will be more promising than on a hardware platform that’s showing its age and limits.

Huawei laptops get Microsoft and Intel commitment but it’s not all good news

Huawei laptops get Microsoft and Intel commitment but it’s not all good news

With Huawei devices teetering on the edge of digital purgatory after the US government's ban, those with one of the company's laptops are getting a little reassurance from Microsoft about Windows. The focus on Huawei's problems after being added to a Chinese trade blacklist by the Trump Administration has generally been around its smartphone business, which has rapidly gained worldwide traction over the past years.

Intel Performance Maximizer released: Overclocking made super easy

Intel Performance Maximizer released: Overclocking made super easy

Users of the latest round of Intel processors will be able to make use of the Intel Performance Maximizer (IPM) as of this afternoon. Today the download for this system was released by Intel as promised earlier this year at Computex 2019. Users will be able to safely and reliably overlock their 9th-gen Intel Core desktop processors at will - but if it's safe, is it really overclocking?

Intel Honeycomb Glacier, Twin River rethink dual screen laptops

Intel Honeycomb Glacier, Twin River rethink dual screen laptops

Remember the Microsoft Courier? What was once fodder for the imagination seems to be taking hold of the PC market. While OEMs are not so hasty to jump on the foldable screen train pushed by Samsung, Huawei, and Lenovo, they are, instead seeing some merit in laptops that offer two screens. Or at least one and a half. While not a PC maker itself, Intel invests in building designs that manufacturers will be interested to make for Intel-powered computers. And, according to Intel, those manufacturers seem to very interested indeed, especially in the Honeycomb Glacier dual screen gaming laptop.

Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 2019 reboot: All the new specs (with XPS 15 2019 too)

Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 2019 reboot: All the new specs (with XPS 15 2019 too)

The XPS 13 2-in-1 was revealed with an updated set of specifications this week alongside its best buddy XPS 15 (non-2-in-1). The Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 (the newest version for May 2019) has a selection of Intel 10th Gen Ice Lake processors, a 13.4-inch, 16:10 aspect ratio display panel (that's a whole 7-percent larger than the most recent model) and a bigger keyboard and touchpad.

Intel Core i9-9900KS promises eight 5GHz cores, all the time

Intel Core i9-9900KS promises eight 5GHz cores, all the time

Intel may have its 10th Gen Core range to show off at Computex 2019, but gamers are much more likely to be interested in a potent new 5 GHz Core i9 that also made its debut in Taiwan this week. The special edition 9th Gen Intel Core i9-9900KS doesn't stint on promises for performance: indeed, the chip-maker says it should be "the world's best gaming desktop processor" when it hits PCs.

Intel new Core i9 gaming CPU, 10nm processors teased ahead of Computex

Intel new Core i9 gaming CPU, 10nm processors teased ahead of Computex

Computex this week will most likely showcase a plethora of upcoming products that will make both consumers and manufacturers drool or dream of the future. For Intel, however, that future isn't that far off. Later this year, it will launch two products that aim to address areas where Intel has been perceived to be lagging behind. With the 9th gen Core i9 CPU and, more importantly, the 11th gen 10nm processors, Intel wants to conquer the markets of PC gaming, big data, and AI in one swoop.

Intel chip flaw allowed hackers to watch you browse the web

Intel chip flaw allowed hackers to watch you browse the web

There's a flaw in the vast majority of Intel chips from here back to the year 2011 called ZombieLoad. That's what security researchers are calling it, anyway. The name refers to data a processor cannot handle, a "zombie load" which can be exploited thanks to a code vulnerability in Intel hardware.

Intel 10nm chips finally ready to ship next month, 7nm in two years

Intel 10nm chips finally ready to ship next month, 7nm in two years

It may have long thrown in the mobile and IoT towels and just recently yielded its 5G stake, but Intel arguably remains the most important CPU maker in the computing market. Just ask the OEMs, including Apple, whose products and sales were impacted by Intel supply shortages. That's why the market is now probably both excited yet also cautious after Intel revealed its roadmap for the next three years, including the long-delayed shipment of 10nm CPUs.

Apple hired Intel 5G lead before settling with Qualcomm

Apple hired Intel 5G lead before settling with Qualcomm

Apple and Qualcomm may have legally settled their differences, but that doesn't mean that the two are suddenly best friends. In fact, a settlement means that some of the strategies both parties employed during the lawsuit can finally come to light. Apple was recently reported to have been allegedly preparing for Qualcomm's downfall long before their tussle but this latest tidbit reveals how it may have also been preparing for the demise of Intel's 5G modem business.
