Intel has always been leading the tech industry in I/O innovation. With the help of USB, the chipmaker opened doors for easier and faster approach to connect external devices. After this came the evolution of the connector ports two years ago, which made an advance to Thunderbolt, Intel's high-end hardware by embracing USB-C. With this, the company gave a boost to a port that had the capability to do it all. Now, the chipmaker has announced certain steps to make Thunderbolt 3 port available to the masses. Currently, Thunderbolt 3 is ...
At the Intel Developer Forum (IDF) in Shenzen, the company officially announced its new low-cost Apollo Lake platform, which will make entry-level PCs, laptops more powerful and efficient in the future. Apollo Lake SoC have been fabricated on the 14nm Goldmont x86 microarchitecture based on the Atom architecture which will improve Instructions Per Cycle performance and GPU performance as well. There will most likely be 4 processor cores. The new generation graphics core is aimed at PCs ranging from entry-level to mid-ranged notebo...
At IFA conference in Berlin last year, Intel showed off the 6th gen Core and Xeon processor families. The new pieces of hardware promise 2.5x faster performance, 30x better graphics, and 3x the battery life than what was available 5 years ago. This improvement – Intel believes – is going to be a ‘turning point in people’s relationship with computers’. More important than any of this optimization were Intel’s new processors’ security features, predominantly an optimized hardware-level authentication feature called Intel Authenticate So...
In 2016, with PCs market declining, Intel’s goal is to lower its reliance on PCs. The market for Personal computers is not a hit anymore, so that might hurt the company. As the demand for desktops falls, demand for chip’s shipment and revenues fall along. One might think that such scenario will jeopardise giants like Intel, but it doesn’t seem so. From numbers disclosed by the company and statements from CEO, it appears that company can grow even when the PC’s market fall. The CEO, Brian Krzanich clearly stated that “Our growth is ...
