Intel Optane 800P SSD launched for consumers who can afford it

Intel Optane 800P SSD launched for consumers who can afford it

With improvements in processors and volatile memory (RAM) technologies, data storage has become the bottle neck in computing performance, be it in mobile devices or, especially, in PCs. While there are still a lot of factors going in favor of HDDs, SSDs have become the go to solution for fast data access. Intel, however, has been boasting that it could do better with its Optane SSDs. Aimed initially at data centers and enterprise customers, Intel brought that technology to consumers with last year’s 900P and now with the more compact 800P M.2 Optane SSD.

HP Envy x2 pricing: Looks like Windows-on-ARM won’t be cheap

Windows-on-ARM was seemed like a good way to get Windows to users with low processing power needs, presumably for low prices. Using a smartphone chip instead of x86, there was a good place for a category of users that might otherwise have gone with something like a Chromebook. But HP's reveal of one of the first Windows-on-ARM computer's pricing seems to have dashed those dreams - at least from this angle.

Vaunt smart glasses: The 5 Glasshole lessons Intel learned

Vaunt smart glasses: The 5 Glasshole lessons Intel learned

Intel's Vaunt smart glasses are real, and they're arguably the most realistic vision of how wearable computing can escape the "Glasshole" reputation. Fruit of the chip-maker's efforts to develop super-low-power processors for lightweight headsets, they may look like regular fashion frames but there's a laser surprise hidden inside. Just as important as what Vaunt's smart glasses can do, though, is the ways in which Intel has tried to circumnavigate its ill-fated predecessors.

2018 iPhone tipped to dump Qualcomm completely

2018 iPhone tipped to dump Qualcomm completely

Apple's ongoing spat with Qualcomm will have a big impact on the modem-maker's fortunes this year, with suggestions that every 2018 iPhone will jump ship to use Intel hardware instead. It's the latest installment of a long-lasting legal and contractual argument between the Cupertino company and what has been one of the most significant chipset providers for its smartphones. That battle culminated in a huge $1.2bn fine leveled at Qualcomm by the European Commission in January.

Intel’s Vaunt smart glasses are real (and real discreet)

Intel’s Vaunt smart glasses are real (and real discreet)

Intel's Vaunt smart glasses aren't Augmented Reality, they're not entertainment-changing Virtual Reality, and they're definitely not Google Glass. What they are, we've discovered today, is a set of spectacles that look pretty much like regular eyeglasses. That's entirely by design, and Intel's Vaunt team has apparently worked hard to pare back the tech glitz in order to hit some essentials.

Intel smart glasses tipped for 2018 in cunning AR plan

Intel could launch consumer smart glasses as soon as this year, though the chip-maker is hoping to let someone else take the reins in the AR wearable battle against Apple and others. The chip-maker has quietly been working on augmented reality eyewear for some time now, developing glasses which can overlay digital information atop the wearer's vision. Indeed, according to a new report it has already inked a deal with Quanta to actually manufacture the glasses.

Microsoft undoes Intel’s buggy Spectre fix with emergency patch

Microsoft undoing an Intel processor patch might seem unlikely, but that's just what an emergency update for Windows is doing because of Spectre reboots. Reports among Windows users of their PCs becoming unstable and rebooting randomly underscored quite how badly Intel's Spectre security fix had got things, with Microsoft now forced to issue an emergency Windows patch that rolls back the processor company's handiwork.
