Intel wearable dreams laid to rest, division shuttered

Intel wearable dreams laid to rest, division shuttered

Just last month, Intel bid farewell to its ambitions to corner the still nascent Internet of Things (IoT) market. Now it seems that even wearables are a no go as well. Although Intel has yet to actually formally announce or even confirm that it has pt an end to both IoT and Wearable plans, the writing has been on the wall. Not only has Intel kept mum on wearables for quite some time now, an insider source says that Intel has already closed the group in charge of pushing its wearable technologies forward.

Windows 10 Creators Update compatibility excludes these PCs

Windows 10 Creators Update compatibility excludes these PCs

Some things are too good to be true or, at the very least, too good to last. Microsoft has committed to continually update Windows 10 and offer those updates for free as part of its “Windows as a Service” paradigm but everyone knows by now it’s a less than perfect strategy. Now reality is hitting some Windows PC owners even harder as they discover their 2 to 3 year old digital partners, many of them 2-in-1 tablets, locked out of the latest Windows 10 Creators Update. All because they have been deemed incompatible, despite having just received the Anniversary Update last year.

AMD Threadripper CPU will make you want a beastly PC

AMD Threadripper CPU will make you want a beastly PC

AMD Ryzen Threadripper CPU details have arrived, and they're ready to kick next-gen PC expectations into gear. These two models contain 12/16 cores, 32 threads, 4GHz turbo, and quad channel DDR4 memory. They're more than ready to roll up to Intel's similar CPU options - they've already surpassed them (on paper, anyway).

Say goodbye to the Intel IoT that never came to be

Say goodbye to the Intel IoT that never came to be

It's tough to be Intel these days. AMD just made a big grab for a market that is, for now, the stronghold of Intel's Xeon. But now it seems that Intel has thrown in the towel in a market at the other end of the size and power spectrum, all thanks to a $25 board. Intel has reportedly shelved its Galileo, Joule, and Edison compute modules, the three platforms it hoped would at least let it set a foothold in the fledgling Internet of Things market where the ARM-powered Raspberry Pi is currently the crowd favorite.

The iPhone 8 could sacrifice gigabit LTE

The iPhone 8 could sacrifice gigabit LTE

Apple's legal spat with Qualcomm might seem like background noise easily tuned out by iPhone users, but it could have a big impact on how well the iPhone 8 performs. The two companies are currently embroiled in a patent argument over cellular radio standards, with Apple threatening to withhold royalty payments that it claims are extortionate. Now, the new iPhone might end up less capable on next-generation networks as a result.

Intel just put Qualcomm’s Windows 10 plans on notice

Intel was never going to be pleased at Microsoft and Qualcomm's plans to run Windows 10 on Snapdragon processors, and now it's dropping heavy hints that it could all end up in court. The latest attempt to squeeze Windows on ARM into the mainstream, the announcement between the software giant and the mobile chipmaker will eventually see processors like the Snapdragon 835 running Windows 10 on models from ASUS, HP, Lenovo, and more. For consumers, that's only going to be a good thing. For Intel, not so much.

Intel wants to put a Core i5 processor into your pants pocket, but don't worry, it's not making another attempt at the smartphone chip market. Instead, the company has detailed the Intel Compute Card at Computex 2017 this week, effectively a full Windows PC squeezed into something the size of a credit card. Intel is betting on it igniting a new age of modular computing.

Intel Core i9 leads new X-series CPUs for the most demanding users

Intel knows you're obsessed with speed, so please feel free to add the Intel Core i9 and the Core X-series processors to your List of Gadgetry to Covet. Unveiled at Computex 2017 this week, the new chips are part of what Intel says is recognition that no, not all PC users are created equal. Indeed, when it comes to gamers, content creators, and people dealing in compute-intense segments like virtual reality, the needs are higher than the current Core i3, i5, and i7 range can deliver.

Intel wants Thunderbolt 3 everywhere, release royalty-free spec

Intel wants Thunderbolt 3 everywhere, release royalty-free spec

Just when you thought the industry has settled down on adopting USB-C as the one connector to rule them all, Intel comes along using its industry clout to push another thing forward. Unlike its predecessors, however, Thunderbolt 3 is fortunately based on USB-C, making it possible to use the same type of connection for both, just like in the latest MacBook Pros. And if Intel has its way, Thunderbolt 3 will be in every desktop, laptop, or computing device, thanks to its generous but also aggressive campaign.

Intel takes drastic measures to keep Thunderbolt 3 alive

Intel takes drastic measures to keep Thunderbolt 3 alive

Intel is baking Thunderbolt 3 into its new chips and ditching licensing fees, in order to avoid adoption of the high-speed connection stuttering to a halt. The processor company said today that it will make it much easier - particularly more affordable - for third-party hardware companies to embrace Thunderbolt 3, the multi-purpose cable which can deliver data, video, and power over a single connection. The move has already won approval from Apple and Microsoft.

Samsung, Intel lend support to FTC’s Qualcomm lawsuit

Chip maker Qualcomm has been having a rough couple of months, not only getting sued by Apple — one of its largest customers — for unfair licensing costs, but also being accused of anti-competitive tactics by the Federal Trade Commission. In the case of the latter, now some of Qualcomm's biggest rivals have chimed in, offering statements to the FTC in support of their monopoly accusations.
