On the 1st of August, American chipmaker, Intel unveiled it’s latest and greatest of CPUs in the form of 10th Generation Core processors which carry the ” Ice Lake ” branding. The company has currently launched 11 models which are part of (U-Series and Y-Series) and they are targeted towards ultrabooks, 2-in-1 computing devices and other mobile form factors.
Right of the bat, the key difference between the 10th Gen and 9th Gen Intel processors is the fabrication process. The newly launched CPUs are manufactured using 10 nm fabrication process which is a considerable bump from 14 nm process that the last-gen CPUs were made with.
According to Intel, [...]
American technology giants Apple and Qualcomm dropped all pending lawsuits against each other and signed a six-year licensing agreement back in the month of April this year. As a repercussion of the decision, chipmaking giant Intel, who was the chief supplier of smartphone modem for the Apple iPhone for the last few years; announced that it is quitting any development on 5G modems. Now, the latest reports reveal that Apple is in advanced talks in buying the dormant 5G modem division from Intel for a hefty sum of US$ 1 Billion.About the deal
As mentioned above, due to the settlement between Apple and Qualcomm, Intel announced that it is quitting the 5G modem business. [...]
Intel was the first to coin the term ‘Ultrabook’ for high-end subnotebook computers. Spending millions of dollars into a marketing strategy aimed for the industry’s latest most powerful laptops that were less bulky without compromising on battery life overall. Project Athena as announced by Intel seeks to revisit this old definition and make true on certain promises left undelivered.
The Ultrabook laptops had unintentionally brought with them an industry standard demanding lightweight, thinner dimensions, effective performance and battery life. The Industry had, on the contrary, thrived with these new set of restrictive parameters that gave birth to [...]
Intel is looking to strengthen its position in the CPU market. The company unveiled its 5GHz laptop processors in the month of April 2019, which have already been incorporated by brands like ASUS, Dell, HP and Razer. In 2018, the American chip manufacturer showcased a CPU which had all its cores clocked at 5.0 GHz. The aforementioned processor, which is the Core i9-9900KS, is all set for release in the upcoming weeks and will be the first of its kind.
The new Intel Core i9-9900KS features a total of 8 cores, all of which will run at a clock speed of 5.0 GHz during single-core workloads as well as multi-core workloads. As per reports, the company showcased a demo of a [...]
American technology giant Intel is known for its desktop processors and computer components. Now, fresh leaks suggest the company may be working on a unique smartphone which it may introduce soon. According to reports, Intel applied for two patents in the year 2016 for a smartphone design with a 360 Degree Camera system. This was later published on the official website of the World Intellectual Property Office (WIPO) on the 14th of May.Intel Smartphone With 360 Degree Camera
The patents reveal two smartphone designs, with both of them showing a near bezel-less smartphone; with some minor differences in design. The first one has a full screen without any borders. A [...]
More and more companies are adopting the 10nm fabrication process for their processors, but Intel does not seem to be affected in the least, as a leaked roadmap for the company’s future CPUs reveals that Intel will not be releasing any 10nm based processors anytime soon. 10nm processors offer considerable improvements over current generation 14nm fabricated processors. For starters, 10nm CPUs have closely placed transistors, implying that signals travel at a higher speed between various components of the chipset. Moreover, since the transistors are closely placed, power consumption is noticeably reduced. It seems, however, that Intel has some plans of its own.Intel Coffee [...]
Intel’s mobile processors are widely regarded as some of the best processors in terms of power consumption and clock speeds. On April 23, Intel Announced its latest lineup of mobile CPUs with a host of new features, including the support of 5GHz clock frequency. Previously, such a clock speed was unattainable in mobile devices, such as laptops.Intel Gen-H Series Features and Specifications
Intel’s new Gen H-series claim to provide faster operating speeds and improved connectivity support than its predecessors. Compared to the 15W power draw of the previous processors, the Gen H-series processors have a wattage label of 45W. Moreover, the processor lineup [...]
Researchers predict that Artificial Intelligence will make its way to a majority of computer systems by the year 2023. Intel has always been pro-AI, and the company even has a Developer Program to encourage programmers to develop AI systems based on Intel’s Xeon Chips. At the Open Compute Project (OCP) Global Summit, the company unveiled its advancements in new hardware, which will improve computing capabilities and cost innovation for hardware developers.
The company stated that there is a huge amount of untapped data and that the company will design hardware that enables its systems to process the generated data in a way that efficiency is maintained. Moreover, Intel [...]
The Game Developer’s Conference held in San Francisco saw some interesting revelations being made, with Google unveiling its upcoming cloud gaming platform and Oculus’ new VR headset, the Rift S. The American multinational corporation, Intel also announced its 9th generation of CPUs for high-performance laptops.About The New Lineup
Named “Coffee Lake”, the new lineup will primarily be targeted towards gaming and digital content creation. The new processors will enable users to play games and stream at high framerates and resolution without affecting the performance. Also, the 9th Gen Core CPUs will support Gigabit-class Wi-Fi 6 and Intel [...]
Consumers believe that 5G technology will initially be limited to just smartphones, which may not be the case. A lot of companies speculate that 5G support will be available almost immediately on desktops and laptops with M.2 sockets. At MWC 2019, companies like Intel and Qualcomm were found showing off their 5G modems that will render high speed internet connectivity to traditional computing devices including laptops and desktops.
Noteworthy, the 5G modules are not intended to be Plug and Play devices, instead, they are dependant on the external 5G antennae for network reception. This means that without a 5G supported machine, the modules are of absolutely no use. The [...]
Intel has finally patented a foldable smartphone which has three different display sections to create an extra large screen. It will run on Windows OS and will probably be equipped with a Stylus pen.Intel Partnering With Microsoft
For such a venture, it seems that Microsoft will enter into a partnership with Intel. At Computex 2018, Intel put forward two prototypes, which included the before-mentioned foldable smartphone and a notebook, also codenamed as the Tiger Rapids Project. The documentation by LetsGoDigital shows a folding smartphone that is made up of three screen parts. It has also released some 3D renders for the same.About The Device
