Late last year, Apple finally launched their first wave of Mac computers powered by the M1 Apple Silicon chipset. This is part of Apple’s two-year plan in which they will make the full transition to Apple Silicon in place of Intel, and it seems to be a strategy that is working out well for the company.
Apple recently unveiled their brand new 24-inch M1 powered iMac. However, for those who might not fancy the design, or still prefer to use Intel, or prefer a larger model, you might be interested to learn that Apple is still selling both the Intel powered 21.5-inch and 27-inch iMacs alongside the new 24-inch model.
When it comes to building computers, we usually have a choice between Intel and AMD. Both have their pros and cons, although usually when it comes to prebuilts, a lot of companies tend to offer Intel only. However, if you’re looking for an AMD powered computer, then Microsoft has you covered.
Some of you might have noticed that just last week, Intel launched a campaign in which they basically bashed Apple’s M1 chipset and compared it against PCs running Intel processors. We can’t say we’re surprised as Intel is probably a bit upset that Apple has more or less ended their business relationship.
The MSI Stealth 15M is a 15-inch ultralight gaming laptop similar to Intel’s concept presented at CES 2021. Gaming laptops come in all shapes and forms, but, indeed, they are rarely slim and light. The MSI Stealth 15M pushes the boundaries for gaming performance / Lbs, a metric that can be key for some users.
Apple’s decision to move away from Intel’s processors in favor of their own Apple Silicon chipsets is probably something that Intel can’t have been too happy about. The company has largely kept silent since then, but it seems that their silence did not last too long as they have gone on the offensive.
With Apple’s new M1 chipsets, many professionals are wondering how it holds up compared to Intel’s processors. After all, Intel has been more or less the industry standard for a while, and changing to a brand new platform could have the potential to negatively impact a professional’s workflow.
When Apple’s M1 Mac computers were launched, many were quick to run the computer through its paces to see whether or not the new M1 chipsets could deliver as promised. To everyone’s delight, Apple’s M1 chipset not only delivered, but in some instances seemed to perform better than advertised.
Graphics processors aren’t exactly new to Intel. There’s a good chance that if you’ve ever bought a budget PC or laptop, it comes with Intel’s onboard graphics, which admittedly aren’t exactly very good for hardcore gamers, but they are usually good enough to get the job done, for the most part.
Intel is typically associated with PCs. The company’s processors are almost always the default choice whether it comes to custom builds or premade computers. However, in the recent years, we’ve actually seen AMD on the rise, plus there is also Apple’s new direction in which they will be ultimately ditching Intel’s processors for their own custom chipset.
Intel got very exciting for investors earlier this month when it announced that it managed to woo Pat Gelsinger to take on the position of CEO starting next month.Gelsinger has, in turn, managed to convince legendary chip designer Glenn Hilton to come out of retirement to work on a new CPU project. The news traveled fast going through Sina.com (in Chinese), but I spotted Ian Cutress’s article in English.If you’re […]
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.
