Intel debuted its RealSense depth-sensing technology several years ago where it made its way onto devices like laptops. Thanks to the use of an infrared camera and infrared laser projectors, RealSense is capable of depth-sensing to determine the distance between objects and helping to separate the foreground from the background.
For years, AMD and Intel have duked it out in terms of CPUs, although for the longest time ever, it seemed like AMD would never be able to catchup to Intel. However, that hasn’t been the case in the past few years, where AMD’s Ryzen CPUs have actually started to gain more traction amongst users as being a better value-for-money offering compared to Intel.
Last year, Apple confirmed that they would be acquiring Intel’s modem business for $1 billion. It’s probably not a stretch to think that the company would be using their acquisition to start making their own cellular modems, and that’s exactly what they’re doing, according to a report from Bloomberg.
According to a recent rumor, it was suggested that in 2021, Apple could finally introduce redesigned MacBook laptops. It was speculated that this would be the M1 (or M2) based MacBooks, but it turns out it will also apply to Intel based MacBooks. This is according to @L0vetodream who has in the past been pretty accurate with their leaks.
Apple made huge claims when they announced their new M1 chipset. While “impressive”, many initial reactions all suggested that these claims were rather vague as Apple did not really dive into specifics and showed off graphs and charts that did not really have any context, leading many to wonder if the new M1 chipsets could live up to the company’s claims.
To help deal with the fact that there won’t be a ton of native M1 compatible apps available right out the gate, what Apple has done is reintroduce its Rosetta translation software, which comes in the form of Rosetta 2. Basically what this does is that it helps “translate” and emulates x86 apps so that they can run the new M1 chipset.
If you’re thinking about buying a new laptop, you might want to hold off for just a bit. This is because Intel has recently announced its latest 11th gen Tiger Lake processors designed for laptops. According to the company, they are expected to find their way into laptops this coming fall, so like we said, it might be a good idea to hold off for a couple of months.
Intel has recently announced their latest 11th gen processors, and given how fast technology is advancing and changing, it’s always a good idea to try and keep yourself updated if you want to futureproof your purchases for a little longer. The good news for those looking for a laptop is that Acer has you covered.
This year does not look like a particularly good year for Intel. It would appear that the company was recently hacked and had about 20GB worth of confidential information stolen and posted onto the internet. This was initially revealed by a software engineer by the name of Till Kottmann who was sent the files from an anonymous hacker.
When it comes to semiconductor fabrication, companies like TSMC have been pushing the boundaries by making chips using smaller processes. Intel, on the other hand, appears to be struggling with that as the company has announced during their Q2 2020 earnings that the rollout of their 7nm CPUs has been delayed to late 2022 or even early 2023.
Without a doubt, many are wondering what Apple’s shift to their own custom ARM chipsets could mean in terms of pricing. Will Apple’s ARM computers cost more than Intel computers? According to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, he speculates that there is a chance that it could actually be cheaper, and that we could actually be seeing a cheaper MacBook Air launch either later this year or 2021.
At WWDC 2020, Apple finally confirmed the long-standing rumors that they would be ditching Intel and transition to creating Mac computers using their own custom ARM chipsets. There are many reasons for Apple to do this, and it seems that costs could be one of them as it has been estimated that Apple could save billions in the process.
Apple’s transition away from Intel to their own custom ARM chipsets for their Mac computers has been rumored for a long time, and it was at WWDC last week that Apple made the move official. There is no doubt that many are skeptical about the move, with some expressing concern, while others are excited.
We have been hearing for years that Apple is looking to develop its own chipsets to be used on its Mac computers, and at WWDC 2020, the company confirmed it where they are expected to fully transition their Mac computers to their own custom chipsets over the course of the next two years.
Apple is expected to launch their first Mac computer using their custom silicon chipsets later this year. There is a question of cost since no one knows how much these new ARM-based chipsets are expected to be priced, but according to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, it seems that the components needed to make them could end up being more expensive than Intel’s processors.
Now that it has been confirmed that Apple will be transitioning away from Intel’s processors to their own custom-made silicon, we’re sure that this has made it a bit awkward for Intel. This is because for the longest time ever, Intel’s processors have been used across Apple’s Mac computers.
For years, it has been rumored that Apple was considering moving away from using Intel’s processors to their own custom creations based on the ARM architecture. It looks like those rumors have finally been proven true because at WWDC 2020, Apple has officially confirmed that they will be moving away from Intel’s processors to their own custom Apple silicon.
The rumors are claiming that Apple is expected to make the transition from Intel x86 processors to ARM-based ones, similar to the ones used on their iPhones and iPads. The move makes all kinds of sense given Apple’s penchant for preferring to use their own tech, plus there is also the added benefit of ARM.
At Apple’s upcoming WWDC 2020 event, the company could unveil their plans to eventually introduce ARM-based chipsets to their Mac computers. However, there is a legitimate concern as to how they might hold up against Intel’s processors which have been powering Mac computers for the past decade or so.
When it comes to protecting your computer against malware, the majority of people rely on software. However, software can really only do so much and might not be particularly effective against certain types of malware, such as control-flow hijacking attacks that might not be detected as they tend to hide behind legitimate code.
