Apple iPhone X has been out for almost a month now and people who’ve recently ordered it, will start receiving their iPhone X sooner rather than later. If you have an iPhone X already, it is possible that your phone might be faster (or slower) than your friend’s iPhone X.
Apple equips iPhones in the US with modems from both Intel and Qualcomm, and the same goes for their priciest iPhone yet, the iPhone X. In a new report, it has been unearthed that iPhone X models with Qualcomm modems were faster than iPhone X models with Intel modems.
The test shows that iPhone X models with Qualcomm modems “get consistently better LTE speeds than Intel’s on [...]
News that is sure to miff overclockers around the globe, Intel has gone ahead and released an update for its Skylake CPUs to stop users from overclocking processors which it believes they shouldn’t. For overclockers searching for an economical way to get a little more juice out of their powerful computing hardware, the skylake generation of processors came as a godsend.
Users with the locked, Non-K skylake processors towards the end of last year, started receiving BIOS updates from ASRock which enabled base clock frequency overclocking. Other motherboard vendors followed with such BIOS updates thus giving users a relatively inexpensive intel processor to [...]

With mobile phones going for slimmer and thinner designs, its components are also going narrower in size. So far, all high-end phones are equipped with 28nm or 20nm size system-on-chip (SoC), but Samsung has showcased the sleekest ever SoC that makes a dent in the mobile hardware market.
Today, at the International Solid State Circuits Conference (ISSCC), the Korean manufacturer demonstrated the 10nm FinFET semiconductor manufacturing process. It’s the world’s first SoC to come in such a minimal size and is expected to be more powerful and energy efficient than the existing offerings. Meanwhile, the latest processor, [...]
Chipsets are at the heart of all the smart devices around us. The silicon revolution has led to a rapid change in the way people do work and lead their daily lives.

This year’s conference presented a lot of interesting presentations that might help to improve the performance of chipsets in the future.
Here are a few of the innovations that might change the world of technology in the near future:Intel’s Move towards 10Nm and [...]
Silicon Valley’s biggest names got together to a reach a settlement in an employee poaching lawsuit. The case was filed against Apple, Google, Intel and Adobe in 2011 by tech sector workers. It stated that these tech giants limited job mobility for workers and thus limited salary growth too. Now these companies have come together for an agreement to settle the case.
Last year, U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh in San Jose, California, rejected the settlement amount of $324.5 million, calling it too low. The settlement was rejected after one of the complainant objected to the amount. That complainant has agreed to the new [...]
