[CES 2017] One of the biggest concerns users have when it comes to purchasing most electronic gadgets is the fear of it becoming obsolete. After all no one likes spending $1,000 on a new gadget only to find out that next year’s model is many times an improvement, right? However Intel thinks that they might have a solution to that problem.
German auto giant BMW, Mobileye, and Intel today announced that they have teamed up to test self-driving cars in the United States and Europe this year. The companies will deploy 40 self-driving cars for testing on public roads in the second half of this year. The test cars will be BMW 7 Series sedans that are packed with technology provided by Intel and Mobileye.
Intel NUC mini-PCs are great if you’re in the market for a basic machine that can provide you with a desktop PC experience.

It has also tweaked the design a bit and has also added a host of new ports to the mini-PCs for enhanced functionality. The new mini-PCs have been unveiled […]
Overclocking is a very niche passion but those who do it swear by it. They probably can’t fathom not tweaking a processor to get the best possible performance they can out of it. While the public has to wait for a bit to get their hands on Intel’s latest Kaby Lake Core i7 processors, the company has sent out several units to overclocking professionals over the past few weeks to […]
There have been a lot of rumors recently about a graphics licensing deal between Intel and AMD as the former’s existing deal with NVIDIA is about to expire. If a new report is to be believed, Intel has chosen AMD over NVIDIA for a graphics licensing deal. The deal will enable the chipmaker to license AMD’s Radeon graphics technology which it would then put inside its iGPU.
AT&T has been setting up its 5G network and the carrier today announced that the next-generation network has now gone live, at least for one business customer in Austin, Texas. This marks the first 5G business customer trial for 5G in the United States, AT&T says that this is the first trial “to our knowledge.” The carrier is using millimeter wave technology to power a 5G network experience in one […]
It has been revealed that for the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, Apple is using modems from Intel and Qualcomm. The latter has typically supplied modems to Apple, but this year we are seeing Apple start to diversify. However it has been reported that Apple was forced to throttle the Qualcomm modems to put them on par with Intel’s, something that users aren’t too thrilled about.
One of surprising successes in recent times is the Amazon Echo, a speaker with Amazon’s AI assistant Alexa built into it. The device has been received pretty well and so far it seems that many users are reacting positively to it, so much so that it has since spawned various devices like the Amazon Tap and the Amazon Echo Dot.
Intel has its new series of Kaby Lake CPUs in the pipeline and it appears that the company is going to offer its first ever K-series unlocked i3 processor which will have overclocking support and a high base clock of 4.0 GHz. The Intel i3 7350K 4.2 GHz dualcore CPU benchmarks have been leaked online and they’re impressive to say the least. This dualcore processor is actually shown to outperform […]
Update – In a statement Intel sent to us, the company has denied the rumors. “Intel is in no way stepping back from the wearables business. In fact, we have several products in the works that we are very excited about, as well as prior launches that highlight our wearable technology such as the TAG Heuer Connected watch and recent Oakley Radar Pace smart eyewear.”Intel’s position as a chipmaker for […]
It seems that some 15-inch MacBook Pros are affected by a bug that seems to cause the system to misreport that GPU that is installed on it. According to several user reports, users are claiming that instead of identifying the Intel HD Graphics 530 chipset that is supposed to be the integrated GPU in their laptop, the system is instead listing an Intel Iris Pro 580 GPU.
Last year there was a bit of controversy regarding the iPhone 6s chipsets, in which it was discovered that the TSMC-made chipsets provided longer battery life (on paper) compared to the ones made by Samsung. Could a similar problem be brewing this year for Apple’s iPhone 7? It’s certainly starting to look that way.
Intel made an important announcement at the Los Angeles Auto Show. The company’s CEO Brian Krzanich revealed during his keynote speech that Intel is going to invest more than $250 million over the next two years to develop self-driving cars. That’s a big chunk of money and it shows that Intel is very serious about competing in the automobile market of the future. It’s certainly not the only company spending […]
It seems that when the new MacBook Pros were revealed, there are some users who were disappointed that the max the laptop’s RAM could be set at was 16GB. When a customer reached out to Phil Schiller, he responded by saying that having more than 16GB of RAM would basically result in a laptop that isn’t as energy efficient.
