09/11/2013, In its morning Keynote at IDF 2013, Intel has officially launched its Bay Trail system-on chip (SoC) that has been designed to compete with chips from Qualcomm or NVIDIA in mobile devices. A Bay Trail system can use up to four CPU cores and it will integrate Intel’s own graphics processor, which is a derivative of Intel’s HD graphics launched some time ago on the PC. Previously, Intel had licensed […]
09/14/2011, We attended the Intel Developer Forum’s (IDF) second keynote this morning (did you follow the live blog?), and the most important thing that you need to know is that Intel is making “low-power” its priority. Low-power is not a new theme: ever since the Pentium 4 got shelved, power efficiency has become increasingly important. However, the pressure from mobile platforms, the rise of non-Intel tablets and the arrival of Windows […]
09/14/2011, Heads up folks – day 2 of the Intel Developer Forum starts today and we will be there “live” to provide coverage from the keynote. Just head on down to our live blog @ live.ubergizmo.com and get minute by minute updates. After the keynote is over, do head back to our main site at Ubergizmo.com for more detailed reports on what we discovered during the event itself. The keynote starts at […]
09/13/2011, [IDF 2011] Earlier today, Intel showed us a computer processor (CPU) that was running on solar energy from a single small solar cell. Although Intel didn’t provide the specific voltage numbers, it’s not hard to imagine that a solar cell can only generate very little energy. Anyone who has tried to charge a smartphone (or even an AAA battery) with solar energy knows this all too well.
09/13/2011, [IDF 2011] During the IDF opening keynote, one of the highlights was the joint Intel/Google announcement that Intel-powered Android phones prototypes already exist, and that Google is committed to “do its best” to optimize for Intel’s architecture. While the statement itself was fairly blend, Andy Rubin did show a physical prototype and apparently internal developers do have working prototypes. Of course, that begs the question: “what’s the power consumption like”? […]
09/13/2011, It’s that time again: the Intel Developer Forum starts this morning, and we will be there to report “live” from the keynotes (one per day) – go to live.ubergizmo.com to follow the event minute by minute. After that, you can head back to Ubergizmo.com to check the IDF announcements in details and see what else is happening in the wonderful world of gadgets. Intel’s IDF Day1 keynote starts at 9am Pacific […]
04/12/2011, The folks over at netbooknews.com attended IDF Beijing 2011 and managed to catch some MeeGo tablets on display, and spotted a MeeGo tablet with an interesting user experience (UX) layer. They recorded some video footage of it in action and it looks pretty sweet. The tablet itself is not too bad itself, with a 1.5GHz Z670 Oaktrail processor, 1GB of RAM, a 10.1″ display and a thickness of only 10mm. […]
11/17/2010, Trust the military to come up with high tech weapons that brings the world to its knees – this newest robotic snake from Israel already looks menacing on its own, and should you decide to throw caution to the wind and blow it up, do beware that it will just split into slightly smaller robotic snakes. After all, individual segments of this robotic snake will be self-contained, complete with a […]
09/14/2010, We’ve set up camp at the Intel Developer Forum (IDF) 2010 in San Francisco, where the keynote ought to start in a few minutes’ time. Head on to our live blog to check out what the latest Intel has to offer, and since today’s main focus would be on mobility, you can be sure that there will be a truckload of interesting devices coming our way, so stay tuned!
09/13/2010, Intel’s WiDi (pronounced in a similar manner somewhat to “wide eye”) technology was showcased at the Intel Developer Forum, where this wireless display technology is useful for streaming video as well as other content from a computer to a large display TV. At the demonstration, an Intel representative used a tablet computer that is powered by an Intel Atom processor as well as sporting WiDi capability in order to showcase […]
09/13/2010, We’re going to live blog the Intel Developer Forum keynote presented by Paul Otellini (CEO) and David Perlmutter (GM, Architecture Group). We expect to hear about Intel’s next generation of processors (codenamed Sandy Bridge) and about the overall CPU business efforts for the coming year. It starts at 9am PT at live.ubergizmo.com
09/12/2010, Just ahead of tomorrow’s official Intel Developer Conference (IDF) debut [follow the Keynote live at live.ubegrizmo.com @ 9am PT], the world’s largest chipmaker was showing a few of its current R&D projects. This is Research, so not all of them (if any) will make it as products, but some were promising, while others were just cool to watch. Here’s what caught our eyes and ears tonight, and if you are attending […]
04/15/2010, You might remember Intel’s Light Peak connectivity option, which is capable of transferring files at a rate of 10Gbps. To make things better, it can also be compatible with a USB 3.0 connector, and considering the popularity of USB, this is certainly great news. Now Intel has confirmed at its Intel Developer Conference (IDF) that it is expecting partners to ship devices to ship with Light Peak support as early […]
09/23/2009, We got our hands on the concept phones that were shown behind a glass earlier tonight, so we’re sharing these photos so that you can see what we saw. In theory, these prototypes represent what can be done with the next generation Atom codenamed Moorestown. It is expected to consume as little as 3 Watts. Of course, there are (much) lower-power solutions available (sub-1W), but don’t forget that Moorestown should […]
