Intel reaches 8 cores for their chips

Intel unveiled a range of new processors aimed at the performance-desktop segment today. For the mainstream market, there are three new K-series overclockable chips branded as ninth-generation parts; seven new Core X-series chips are launching for the high-end desktop market, and for those who need still more performance, there’s an overclockable Xeon chip. The ninth-generation parts confirm previous leaks that hyperthreading is now only...

New Intel 10nm chips arrive holiday season 2019

Intel has previously said its 10nm chips will arrive in 2019. But on Thursday, the company got more specific: the upcoming processors will land on store shelves at the end of 2019, during the holiday season. The first 10nm chips to launch will be for consumer PCs, with server-based chips to shortly follow, Intel executives said during an earnings call. Why the continued delays?...

AMD improving in CPU world once more

Getting excited over slices of silicon is quite a task. And it’s even harder when you take into account the general lack of anything particularly significant in the processor world, at least until AMD showed off its Ryzen CPUs in 2017. For a good few years, Intel has dominated the desktop and laptop processors market, offering CPUs that outperformed AMD chips across the board,...

Report says Intel fixes leave PCs no more than 10% slower

Intel Corp., trying to defuse concern that fixes to widespread chip security vulnerabilities will slow computers, released test results late Wednesday showing that personal computers won’t be affected much and promised more information on servers. The chipmaker published a table of data showing that older processors handled typical tasks 10 percent slower at most, after being updated with security patches. The information covered three...

Intel goes extreme with their first 10-core processor

Chipset manufacturers have been boosting processing power by leaps and bounds in recent years. Now, Intel is going one better with the next-generation Broadwell-E chip family, its first ever 10-core desktop processor. You heard that right: Intel is going for “10-core” in its branding here, ditching the logical naming progression to “deca-core.” Apparently, we don’t need Latin with speeds like this chip promises. The...

New ultra fast processor previewed

New ultra fast processor previewed

Scientists have created an ultra-fast 1,000 core computer processor which could speed up machines and make them greener. Originally, computers were developed with only one core processor, the part of a computer’s central processing unit (CPU) which reads and executes instructions. Nowadays processors with two, four or even 16 cores are commonplace. However, Dr Wim Vanderbauwhede, of the University of Glasgow, and colleagues at...

Intel Plans to Speed Up Introduction of Nehalem Microprocessors

Intel Corp., the world’s largest maker of microprocessors, may bring the introduction of its microprocessors based on the next-generation micro-architecture code-named Nehalem forward. The decision will add pressure on Advanced Micro Devices in the market of dual-processor servers. According to diagrams that represent slides from Intel Corp.’s transition guidance documents published by VR-Zone web-site, the fist Intel’s code-named Bloomfield central processing units (CPUs) for...
