12/17/2012, We know that Intel has been hard at work trying to break into the mobile scene, although apart from the Motorola Droid RAZR i, other devices powered by Intels’ Medfield processor certainly leaves much to be desired in terms of design and hardware specs. Perhaps it might not be Intel’s strategy at the moment to go head to head with the high-end Android devices because if the reports are to […]
12/14/2012, As Intel is looking for a new CEO, something surprising did happen recently: the company has hinted that it may bring in someone from the outside, which would be a first for Intel. So far I’ve heard names like Sanjay Jah, the former Motorola CEO (and ex-Qualcomm COO) as potential replacement for Intel’s Paul Otellini who is retiring in May 2013. Tech site BSN has started a new Internet buzz […]
12/13/2012, Ah, I have had fond memories of my time with the 80386 processor from Intel which first debuted in 1985. That would make it more than a quarter of a century old, now how about that? Since 1985, the venerable i386 processor has served numerous PC users worldwide, providing an unprecedented boost in speed and power, that playing Bitmaps Brothers’ Gods on it proved to be one lightning quick affair. […]
12/13/2012, For those unfamiliar, Apple’s A-series of processors are currently built by Samsung in a Texas fabrication facility, although given Apple and Samsung’s degrading relationship what with the lawsuits and all, there has been plenty of rumors suggesting that Apple could ditch Samsung as a chip manufacturer. The rumors have suggested that TSMC could be a candidate to build Apple’s chips, while not too long ago reports have indicated that Apple […]
12/11/2012, It seems that the next generation of Intel’s Haswell CPU processors, with the Core i7-4770K flagship leading the line, has been leaked – and the good people over at VR-Zone has managed to get their hands dirty with the collection, mulling over the future 22nm Haswell desktop processors. There would originally be 14 CPUs across the Core i7 and Core i5 brands, and these will rely on a totally new […]
12/10/2012, Not so long ago, mobile processors from Intel had thermal design points (TDP) of 45W. TDP designates the energy that the chip and its cooling system are designed to dissipate. It is not really a measure of power draw, but both are correlated because dissipating more heat, means that more energy is consumed to produce that heat.
12/10/2012, Intel has expressed interest in entering the mobile industry with its Medfield chips. So far there have been two Intel-powered devices released, both of which are smartphones, but could we be seeing an Intel-powered Android tablet? Perhaps we will, thanks to an FCC filing which revealed an Intel-powered Android device with its codename, Red Ridge. It is unclear that the moment who will be building this tablet, and what its […]
12/03/2012, The relationship between Samsung and Apple can hardly be called good, what with the lawsuits between both companies. However with Samsung manufacturing parts Apple needs for their products, such as their AX chips used in Apple’s iOS products, rumor has it that Apple is looking to reduce reliance on Samsung and if a recent report by RBC Capital analyst Doug Freedman is to be believed, it seems that Apple could […]
11/19/2012, Paul Otellini, the current CEO of Intel, has announced his retirement, effective at the end of the annual stockholder’s meeting in May 2013. This will conclude his 40-year career at Intel (years as CEO), a company which is 45-years old. During his tenure, stockholder dividends were raised by 181% and company generated $107B in cash. As a final contribution, he will help Intel find his replacement.
11/06/2012, Intel has just announced its next-generation solid-state drive series for Big Data, Cloud, and other Data Center applications. Intel’s SSD DC S3700 series, as it is officially called, are designed to remove storage congestion while maximizing multi-core CPU performance. The new SSDs, which will be offered in 100GB, 200GB, 400GB, 800GB capacities, promises to deliver fast and consistent performance with low latencies, along with strong data protection and high endurance, […]
11/06/2012, It was reported a while back that Foxconn would increase their investment in Sharp, but it looks like despite Sharp’s public assurances that there will be cuts in cost and the ability to secure credit to keep themselves afloat, there still remains some doubt as to whether the company will be able to do that, a doubt that was acknowledged by the company themselves. That being said, it has also […]
11/05/2012, When Apple moved to Intel processors back in 2005, it was a coming-out of sorts for the Mac OS X operating system. No longer forced to run on PowerPC processors built by Motorola and IBM, software availability bloomed, and the Mac platform became much stronger as a result. Now Bloomberg is reporting that Apple is looking for ways to replace the Intel processors it currently uses in its Mac computers […]
10/18/2012, Acer of Taiwan has just announced that they will be making a splash in the smartphone market before the year is over, although they will rely on a chipset that hails from Intel in order to further expand their partnership in the fast-growing market. Not only that, Acer has plans to pre-install their very own cloud service on the new smartphone model, according to Peter Shieh, vice president of Acer’s […]
10/12/2012, You know why soldiers on the ground need to be so buffed up and fit? Well, not only do they need to make sure they are the toughest and meanest looking folks on the battlefield, there is also a whole lot of gadgets and equipment that they will need to carry in combat, so not having that rippling six pack is going to work against you. Researchers have a soft […]
