Buying a laptop with Intel on the inside often boils down to two choices. Do you go with the potent Core i processor like the i5 or i7, or do you save some money (and battery life) and grab the super low powered Core M processor usually reserved for tiny tablets? Core i and Core M, despite both coming from Intel, are…
Kaby Lake, Intel’s latest processor family, wasn’t supposed to exist. Earlier this year Intel announced the end of its well-known tick-tock release schedule, whereby it trots out a new processor every September. The tick is the shrinking and improvements of the current microarchitecture, while the tock is a whole new…
Intel just announced its own virtual reality headset called Project Alloy, a VR competitor to the Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, and the forthcoming PlayStation VR headsets. But what separates the Alloy from the pack is that it’s completely wireless (the wire above is for capturing video for the demo) and it should give you…
If you need raw power in your desktop PC, Intel’s new CPU will be just the ticket. The new Extreme Edition of its regular Core i7 chip has 10 cores, each running at up to 3.5GHz—but it’ll cost you.
While every other port on your computer has become digitized and smarter, the good ‘ol 3.5mm headphone jack has remained as a bastion of analog data transmission. But Intel thinks the time has come for its replacement, and it looks like USB-C.
Intel has announced that it’s moving away from its current “tick-tock” chip production cycle and instead shifting to a three-step development process that will “lengthen the amount of time [available to] utilize... process technologies.”
Nobumichi Asai and Studio WOW recently teamed up with Intel’s #ExperienceAwesome campaign, and created this incredible face-mapped art performance.
AT&T has announced that it’s going to work with Intel in order to use LTE networks to help fly drones way beyond line-of-sight. The partnership will investigate how land-based data networks can be used to stream video and beam back flight information.
Take 100 drones. Strap lights to them and launch them into the air. Control them with a single piece of software and have an orchestra play Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony in the background. Voila: you have a world record and a spectacular light show to boot.
Yesterday, Intel announced that it’s putting its insane 72-core Knight’s Landing’ supercomputer chip—its fastest ever—into production. But perhaps more exciting is the fact that it has plans to ship desktop workstations that contain the face-melting computational powerhouse.
This is the latest addition to Arduino’s line-up of budget-friendly development boards, and it uses Intel’s cute-as-a-button Curie chip to power itself along.
Stop. Don’t buy that new Windows laptop or tablet. Don’t pull the trigger unless you’re getting a truly amazing deal. Because today, Intel’s launching its latest processor—Skylake—and you may want one in your next PC.
USB Type-C is shaping up to be the holy grail of ports. It can charge your laptop, deliver 4K video, and transfer loads of USB data all over a single cable—all at the same time. What could be better? You’re looking at the answer.
Razer is making an Intel-powered Kinect for PCs. A 3D-sensing depth camera that uses Intel’s RealSense technology. Why would you want that? Well—Intel says it’ll let anyone put their face into a Twitch game streaming video.
“Cortana, wake up.” Seriously, that’s it. Say those words to a snoozing Windows 10 computer with a sixth-generation Intel Core processor, and it’ll wake right up from sleep. That’s because the new Intel Skylake processors will always be listening for that command, thanks to a low-power digital signal processor (DSP)…
At the Intel Developers Conference—the company’s chance once per year to talk about more than just chips (but also chips)—Fossil along with Intel took the covers off its first wearable, an Android Wear smartwatch that still remains mysteriously unnamed.
