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.
