Intel 7nm delayed again: Chipmaker admits embarrassing slide

Intel 7nm delayed again: Chipmaker admits embarrassing slide

Intel earnings released this afternoon showed a bit of a change in the company's outlook for chip manufacturing. Intel revealed that their "7nm-based CPU product timing is shifting approximately six months relative to prior expectations." That's a very skillfully stated way of saying Intel's 7nm-based CPU product will be about a half-year later than they'd planned.

Ford taps Intel Mobileye for smarter car vision and crowdsourced-cleverness

Ford taps Intel Mobileye for smarter car vision and crowdsourced-cleverness

Ford and Intel have inked a deal to give future cars better vision, with Mobileye vision-sensing tech being used to power the automaker's driver assistance systems. Mobileye EyeQ will be used for systems like Ford Co-Pilot360, including both hardware and software, and eventually form part of the technology behind Ford Active Drive Assist in 2021.

Samsung’s Intel-based Galaxy Book S is ready for prime time

Samsung’s Intel-based Galaxy Book S is ready for prime time

Back toward the end of May, Samsung revealed a new Galaxy Book S built around one of Intel's hybrid Lakefield CPUs. Specifically, the Galaxy Book S features an Intel Core i5-L16g7 at its core, ditching the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8cx we see in the other Galaxy Book S. Fast forward to today, and Samsung has announced that the Intel-based Galaxy Book S is now up for grabs from its website, revealing the starting price of the notebook in the process.

Researchers team with Intel to make super-sensitive artificial skin

Researchers team with Intel to make super-sensitive artificial skin

The field of robotics is one that’s made some significant strides in recent years, but one major difference between us and our robotic counterparts is our ability to feel. Simply having the dexterity to carry out a task isn’t always enough, as our sense of touch gives the brain a lot of contextual information. Today, researchers with the National University of Singapore (NUS) have demonstrated new tools that will allow robots to sense touch, potentially opening the window for them to carry out a larger array of tasks.

With Thunderbolt 4 on the horizon, good news for Apple Silicon Macs

With Thunderbolt 4 on the horizon, good news for Apple Silicon Macs

Apple may have signed the divorce papers with Intel over future processors, but that doesn't mean Apple Silicon Macs will miss out on eagerly-awaited features like next-gen Thunderbolt. The countdown to the first Apple Silicon Mac - which could be a 13-inch MacBook Pro, the latest speculation suggests - is already on, with Apple promising its first consumer-ready hardware by the end of the year.

Thunderbolt 4: Intel talks speed, security & when it’s due

Thunderbolt 4: Intel talks speed, security & when it’s due

Thunderbolt 4 is coming, with Intel detailing the next-generation port that promises better performance and more security, as well as greater flexibility on laptops and desktops. Sticking with the same USB Type-C connector as Thunderbolt 3 - and indeed backward compatible with the existing port - computers with Thunderbolt 4 will now support two 4K displays instead of just one.

New Apple iMac Geekbench leak teases exclusive Intel Core i9 CPU

New Apple iMac Geekbench leak teases exclusive Intel Core i9 CPU

An unannounced Apple iMac has appeared in leaked Geekbench benchmarks indicating that not only is one on the horizon, but that it'll potentially be running an exclusive Intel Core i9-10910 CPU. Rumors earlier this year suggested that Apple is working on a new iMac model, stoking anticipation that it may have been on the WWDC 2020 roster -- hope that didn't ultimately pan out.

Apple chip in Mac transition kit makes the Surface Pro X look bad

Apple chip in Mac transition kit makes the Surface Pro X look bad

Apple's decision to ditch Intel in the long run for its own ARM-based silicon was naturally received with mixed reactions and opinions. While the benefits on power efficiency are almost unquestioned, there have naturally been concerns over performance, especially when trying to support Mac software not yet built for the new chips. There will naturally be a need for some sort of CPU emulation, a piece of software formally known as Rosetta. Emulation incurs some performance penalty but if "accidental" benchmarks are any indication, Mac users might have very little to worry about.

Mac switch to Apple silicon confirmed

Mac switch to Apple silicon confirmed

Today Apple announced that they'd be moving toward their own silicon - effectively removing Intel from the equation. This was a "huge leap forward for the Mac," said Apple CEO Tim Cook. "Today is the day we're announcing the Mac is transitioning to our own Apple silicon." This move is major for every key player involved - not just Intel and Apple, but the users of future Mac computers as well.

Surface Laptop 4 could rock new AMD Ryzen 4000 CPUs

Surface Laptop 4 could rock new AMD Ryzen 4000 CPUs

It seems that CPU giant Intel's empire is once again besieged. From critical hardware flaws to Apple's upcoming ARM-based Macs, Intel is slowly but surely being forced to come to terms with a future where it will be forced to rub shoulders with its rivals from all fronts. Even long-time partner Microsoft is cozying up with long-time rival AMD for the former's Surface line of laptops. It's probably not that surprising considering how popular the AMD Surface Laptop 3 apparently was.

13.3-inch MacBook, 24-inch iMac rumored to be first Apple ARM computers

13.3-inch MacBook, 24-inch iMac rumored to be first Apple ARM computers

The first few months of the year were rough for companies and organizations that regularly hold large events year in and year out. Most have canceled while others have put their events on hold, albeit indefinitely. Google did cancel its annual I/O developers conference but Apple is pushing ahead with an online version of its yearly WWDC. And it's a good thing, too, because it's now expected to make one of the biggest announcements in the company's history since the late Steve Jobs announced it would be abandoning the PowerPC platform for Intel.

Intel RealSense D455 doubles depth camera accuracy

Intel has announced a new RealSense model, the latest in its depth-tracking cameras with the promise of extra range and precision. The Intel RealSense Depth Camera D455 looks at first glance like a Microsoft Kinect, and indeed one of its talents is movement tracking. However rather than gaming, Intel expects it to be used in robotics, healthcare, and other environments.
