Your next car may be the most powerful computer you own

Your next car may be the most powerful computer you own Increasingly, though, new cars are powerful computing platforms — and starting to pack more compute power than laptops and even desktops.Coupled with an internal monitor, the result would be a more aerodynamic profile for the car, especially helpful for range-hungry electric vehicles.

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.

Intel launches Stratix 10: Altera FPGA combined with ARM CPU, 14nm manufacturing When Intel bought Altera last year, there was speculation on how we’d see future FPGA products fit within Intel’s existing product lines.The new Stratix 10 family does contain a microprocessor — but it’s an ARM-based design, not an Intel chip.

New PC industry consortium to develop next-gen memory interconnect

New PC industry consortium to develop next-gen memory interconnect The entire computing industry has a memory problem, and a new consortium of industry partners, dubbed Gen-Z, hopes to solve it.What’s needed is a new memory interface that can tie these various components together, and that’s where Gen-Z comes in.

Google puts Intel on notice, ‘looks forward’ to using non-Intel chips within its cloud

Google puts Intel on notice, ‘looks forward’ to using non-Intel chips within its cloud Other vendors, like IBM or ARM, have an even smaller market share than AMD.That could change in the next few years, however, and Google has flung its support behind a new interconnect standard, OpenCAPI, and IBM’s POWER9 CPU architecture.

Samsung’s 10nm node, SoCs now in mass production

Samsung’s 10nm node, SoCs now in mass production According to Samsung, its 10nm LPE (Low Power Early) process node will offer “up to 30-percent increase in area efficiency with 27-percent higher performance or 40-percent lower power consumption.” Or this, from the company’s page on its 32nm process node.

First Intel Optane hardware could be coming to consumer desktops

First Intel Optane hardware could be coming to consumer desktops Ever since Intel announced its 3D XPoint storage (brand name: Optane), there’s been interest from the enthusiast market.Micron expects its version of 3D XPoint, dubbed QuantX, to sell for about half the price of DRAM, but 4-5x more than NAND flash.

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.

iPhone 7s with Intel modems struggle badly in low-signal areas

iPhone 7s with Intel modems struggle badly in low-signal areas Previously, Apple has tapped both Samsung and TSMC to build its SoCs, but stuck with the same Qualcomm modem for all its hardware.With the iPhone 7, Apple adopted an Intel modem for its AT&T and T-Mobile variants, while the factory-unlocked devices, Sprint, and Verizon hardware all use Qualcomm’s modem silicon (MDM9645M if you want to get technical).
