PC market continues to drop as Skylake, Windows 10 fail to spark recovery

PC market continues to drop as Skylake, Windows 10 fail to spark recovery Last year, analysts from Gartner and IDC predicted that we might see tentative signs of recovery in the PC industry this year as enterprise upgrades to Windows 10, Skylake, and new all-in-ones finally sparked some signs of growth.That could still happen later this year, but it hasn’t happened yet — Q1 2016 sales fell 11.

Intel’s CEO lays out a comprehensive, cloud-based vision for the future

Intel’s CEO lays out a comprehensive, cloud-based vision for the future On Tuesday, CEO Brian Krzanich laid out his vision for the future of the CPU giant in a lengthy public memo.The data center points are fairly standard, too, though it’s not clear how serious Intel is about trying to expand this segment.

New PC motherboard teases Intel Skylake chipset, integrated GTX 1070

If the motherboard and GPU manufacturer has its way, however, its devices may soon be grabbing headlines — especially if the company brings its proof-of-concept B150 motherboard with an integrated GTX 1070 to market in the United States.The B150 is a budget chipset from Intel that supports the latest Intel Skylake processors, but doesn’t include overclocking options, RAID support, or nearly as many PCI-E lanes devoted to the chipset itself.

Happy 10th birthday to Intel’s Core 2 Duo

Happy 10th birthday to Intel’s Core 2 Duo Ten years ago today, Intel launched the Core 2 Duo.The roots of the Core 2 Duo go back much farther than 2006, though, to the P6 (Pentium Pro) architecture that Intel launched in 1995.

AMD Zen benchmarks leak, point to potent performance against Intel, huge gains over Piledriver

AMD Zen benchmarks leak, point to potent performance against Intel, huge gains over Piledriver Now, thanks to some leaked benchmarks and sleuthing at WCCFTech, we’ve got our first glance at how AMD’s Zen engineering samples perform against other hardware in Ashes of the Singularity.This last point is extremely significant, because it’s common for prototype chips and engineering samples to offer less performance than the final version.

AMD unveils new details for its next-generation 2017 Zen CPU core

AMD unveils new details for its next-generation 2017 Zen CPU core ” That’s the word from AMD, which dropped some new details in a private press event about its forthcoming Zen architecture.The company is also focusing on throughput with Zen, with 8MB L3 cache and a new cache memory hierarchy.

What to expect when you’re expecting AMD Zen

What to expect when you’re expecting AMD Zen While the leaks haven’t been confirmed as genuine, it was interesting to see the conversation around Zen and AMD’s expected performance level.Then, at an event on Wednesday, AMD showed some demos of Zen running clock-for-clock against Intel’s 5960X.

Intel announces new Kaby Lake: Built on 14nm+, with improved video decode and better top-end frequencies

Intel announces new Kaby Lake: Built on 14nm+, with improved video decode and better top-end frequencies Today, Intel announced its upcoming Kaby Lake hardware refresh.Then again, Anandtech is reporting that 4K Netflix support, when it eventually comes to PCs, may only be available to Kaby Lake owners.

Intel launches new Apollo Lake silicon, but new Goldmont CPU architecture may draw significantly more power

Intel launches new Apollo Lake silicon, but new Goldmont CPU architecture may draw significantly more power Earlier this year, Intel announced that its next-generation Atom architecture, Goldmont, would be confined to netbooks and the low-end of the desktop market.We still don’t know what Intel changed or how Goldmont differs from Airmont — but this plays into the TDP considerations we mentioned above.

Intel Core i5 vs. Core i7: Which processor should you buy?

Intel Core i5 vs. Core i7: Which processor should you buy? ) Older Core i5 / Core i7 chips top out at 32GB of RAM, but Skylake raises this to 64GB for both types of processor.To compare performance between the Core i5 and Core i7 families, I turned to Anandtech’s excellent CPU Bench database.

How much additional performance does Intel’s Kaby Lake refresh deliver?

How much additional performance does Intel’s Kaby Lake refresh deliver? But the broad conclusion is that Kaby Lake delivers a noticeable performance improvement to both CPU and graphics workloads.With Intel serving up the same level of improvement in Kaby Lake, it won’t really change competitive positioning between the two companies.

New MacBooks may finally be inbound, with faster GPUs, USB-C, and Thunderbolt 3

New MacBooks may finally be inbound, with faster GPUs, USB-C, and Thunderbolt 3 The new machines reportedly feature some significant new technologies, but at least one product — the 11-inch MacBook Air — is reportedly going away, its niche filled by the 12-inch, single-port MacBook.The rumors from Japanese site Mac Otakara suggest a pair of new MacBook Pros at 13-inch and 15-inch, and a new, 13-inch MacBook Air.

Leaked Kaby Lake benchmarks point to a modestly faster Core i5, Optane compatibility

Leaked Kaby Lake benchmarks point to a modestly faster Core i5, Optane compatibility We’ve already gotten some detail on the company’s third-generation 14nm process technology, but information about Kaby Lake itself has been harder to come by.We now know, thanks to Anandtech, that clock speeds on all of the Kaby Lake chips scheduled for release will be several hundred MHz faster than their Skylake counterparts.
