In case you did not know, for the longest time ever Apple’s iPhones used Qualcomm’s modems for its internet connectivity. However starting with last year’s iPhone 7, Apple started to use Intel’s modems as well, so depending on your region, your iPhone could either be sporting an Intel or Qualcomm modem.
Another Computex comes to an end, and once again, there are a flurry of great announcements and products related to the PC industry and derivatives such as VR/AR and Gaming. We have run around to check as many things as we could (check our Computex 2017 coverage), but we didn’t stray too far from our normal regimen of laptops and key components such as CPUs and GPUS.We’ve compiled this list (no […]
When it comes to upgrading our gadgets, most of the time it involves us just buying a new one, unless you have a desktop computer in which you can swap out components. However this was a problem that Intel tried to solve earlier this year with the Compute Card and at Computex this year, the company has finally launched it alongside some new partners.
Intel confirmed earlier this year that its 8th generation processors will be built on the 14 nanometer process yet again. It’s the fourth time in a row that the company has stuck to this process for its new lineup of chips. The company didn’t really say then what the improvements were going to be but it did claim a 15 percent performance improvement over the existing 7th Generation of Core […]
It has long been reported that Intel is going to expand its Core processor lineup to offer Core i9 models to customers who want even more performance. It has finally done that today. Intel announced its new family of high-end Core X desktop processors today at Computex 2017. The new family brings more powerful models of the existing Core i5 and Core i7 models as well as a new Core […]
It was reported last week that Intel had started licensing graphics technology from AMD. The company’s agreement with NVIDIA ended earlier this year so it would need a partner and rumors suggested that it was talking to AMD about a possible partnership. Last week’s report suggested that Intel had started paying royalties but the chip giant is now refuting the report.
Intel’s GPU licensing agreement with NVIDIA ended on March 17th. Many rumors floated around at that point in time, some claimed that a new license was being negotiated, others suggested that Intel and AMD were in discussions about a possible agreement. If a new report is believed, Intel and AMD have inked an agreement and that Intel is now licensing graphics technology from AMD.
It has been rumored for a couple of years that Intel may launch a higher end variant of its Core processor family but one has yet to materialize. As we await the company’s next-generation processor family, we’re once again hearing rumors that Intel could launch a Core i9 variant with the upcoming family.
Intel’s 10 nanometer Cannon Lake chips have long been delayed but that’s not stopping the company from trying to increase the hype surrounding them. The company is claiming that its 10 nanometer Cannon Lake chips will be a “full generation” ahead of those from rivals like Samsung and TSMC when they finally arrive. Intel says that this will be possible due to “hyper scaling” which basically incorporates twice as many […]
MobilEye is a company based in Israel that develops self-driving car technology. It used to supply Tesla with the bits and pieces that powered its Autopilot semi-autonomous driving features but the two companies later had a falling out. It then teamed up with Intel to work on BMW’s iNext self-driving platform. Intel must have liked its work because it has decided to acquire MobilEye for $15.3 billion.
In case you didn’t know, Apple uses a mixture of both Intel and Qualcomm LTE modems for its iPhones. This is because at the moment, Intel’s modems weren’t equipped to support legacy CDMA networks such as those used by Verizon and Sprint, which is why some iPhones had Qualcomm modems and some used Intel modems.
Gone are the days when Intel’s new chips firmly stuck to the tick-tock method, which basically meant that there would be a new processor with one generation and a new architecture with the next. The company has now confirmed that its upcoming 8th generation of processors is going to stick with the 14 nanometer process for the fourth time in a row. Intel is expected to launch its 8th generation […]
Rumors of Apple potentially moving to ARM over Intel for their computers have been rumored for many years, with some dating as far back as 2012. We have also heard the rumors that Apple has been testing out such designs, and now thanks to a report from Mark Gurman at Bloomberg, an ARM-powered MacBook Pro could debut this year.
In the past technology would typically be associated with “boring” looking devices, like huge chunk computers and monitors that come in dull colors like black or beige. However these days we’re starting to see how tech can be fashionable or artsy, especially with artists now collaborating with tech companies to make that a reality.
