While Razer might be known as a gaming company with rather flashy looking gadgets and computers, the company has every now and then put out a more subdued device for those who’d rather not be so obvious. One of those devices is the Razer Blade 15 Studio Edition, which the company has recently given an upgrade.
The CPUs on our computers have come a very long way from their early days, where Intel’s CPUs with a dual-core processor was seen as revolutionary. Of course, this doesn’t make today’s accomplishments any less impressive, but it’s always nice to see how far along we’ve come.
A couple of years ago, a pretty huge flaw was discovered amongst Intel’s chipsets. While it looks like things might have smoothed over since, it looks like a new flaw has been discovered, and this time what makes this particular flaw so dangerous is the fact that it apparently unpatchable.
If you’re thinking about getting a new MacBook Pro laptop, you might want to hold off on the current models. This is because according to a recent tweet by @_rogame, it has been suggested that Apple’s upcoming 13-inch MacBook Pro refresh could be taking advantage of Intel’s 10th gen Ice Lake chipsets.
If there is a reason why the majority of gaming rigs tend to be pretty huge, it is because of the desire to create a PC with amazing airflow and also the ability to fit full-sized GPUs. However, if you’re not a fan of those bulky rigs and want a smaller and more minimalist rig, then usually compromises have to be made, especially in the GPU department.
The problem with a lot of small form factor PC builds is that it can be hard to find high-end powerful GPUs that can fit into them, but we suppose to be fair, these kind of builds tend to focus more on size rather than power. However, if you do fancy putting together a SFF build, ASUS might have something of interest to you.
If you’re looking for a new laptop, most of the laptops you find in the market today are powered by Intel’s processors. However, if you want an AMD variant, you’re in luck because Lenovo has announced their new Yoga Slim 7 laptops that will be offered in either Intel or AMD configurations.
Due to the way laptops are designed, which are typically created to be light and portable, certain compromises had to be made, such as in terms of its cooling. This is versus desktop computers where due to their size, it allows for better ventilation and cooling. However, future Intel-powered laptops could solve thermal issues.
Just like most product releases, when Intel releases CPUs, there are a variety of options for customers to choose from, ranging from the low-end to the high-end, depending on their needs and their budget. As expected, going low-end usually means that you will need to “sacrifice” certain features in favor of a cheaper price.
At the rate that technology is evolving and changing, it’s always a good idea to ensure that whatever tech you buy is the best at the time. This is because every year new and more powerful hardware is introduced, so if you’re not the type that is constantly upgrading, then having the latest tech helps ensure you stay ahead of the curve, at least for a while.
Earlier this year, Apple announced that they would be acquiring Intel’s smartphone modem business, essentially confirming that the company could eventually start building its own smartphone modems which in turn reduces the company’s reliance and dependence on others, like Qualcomm.
Our mobile connectivity has evolved greatly from the early days, where we would need to connect a cable to our computers to get internet. These days, we are given more options such as WiFi or even cellular connectivity, where we are seeing laptops come with the option to connect to the internet over 4G.
Intel and AMD are each other’s rivals in the processor scene, so a couple of years ago, it was actually kind of surprise when it was revealed that Intel and AMD would be teaming up for a special series of chipsets, where Intel would be creating chipsets that come with AMD graphics integrated into them.
We’ve seen AI used in the medical industry before, where thanks to the use of the algorithms and machine learning, it can help doctors detect diseases in patients that they might have otherwise overlooked. Now it seems that Intel wants to leverage AI and take it one step further by potentially help paralyzed patients walk again.
