The EU Proposes Ban On Encryption Backdoors

The EU has done a sensible thing and proposed that end to end encryption be preserved and never be backdoored. This is the kind of proposal that we at the INQUIRER can get behind. Encryption is an important thing that we value. Unfortunately, various governments take an opposing view and think that they should have their own backdoor access to communications. Look, this is awkward. We know you like your ad blocker, but we know you like INQ. And we need to eat. So please, pretty please, can you add...

Facebook Teach Chatbots To Negotiate

Chatbots are being taught how to drive a hard bargain in a new AI experiment carried out by Facebook’s Labs. According to New Scientist, the research could lead to more effective personal assistants able to negotiate on our behalf, sorting out calendar clashes and the like. French website Julie Desk is already offering this kind of AI diary management, but now Facebook has jumped on the bandwagon, looking at perhaps getting you a good deal on your next holiday, according to Mike Lewis from...

Intel Kaby Lake With AMD GPU Expected Later This Year

A few days ago, Videocards had an update on the engineering samples that got leaked.  One thing caught our attention, the Intel(R) HD Graphics Gen9 with 694C:C0 graphics. It took us some time to ask round, and it turns out that a Kaby Lake with AMD graphics combination might be the right lead. We already told you that Apple is likely to be the customer who nicely asked Intel to make such a Frankenstein chip. What Apple wants, Apple gets is the mantra and it is very hard to say no to hundreds of...

Is AMD’s Ryzen 1950X Ready To Hit The Market

AMD’s Ryzen ThreadRipper 1950X CPU engineering sample, a 16-core/32-thread SKU, has been spotted on Geekbench running at 3.4GHz base clock. This should be the flagship SKU and it appears it won’t have the 1998X model number, as previously rumored. The engineering sample works at 3.4GHz base clock and was running on an ASRock X399 Professional Gaming motherboard with 16GB of DDR4-2133 memory. The ThreadRipper 1950X, as it is currently called, packs a massive 32MB of L3 cache and 8MB of...

Will nVidia’s Next GeForce Go HBM2

Volta is out for artificial intelligence, machine learning applications and it will be shipping in DGX 1 systems, mainly for deep learning and AI. The next Geforce will be a  completely separate chip. Of course, Nvidia won’t jump and manufacture a high end Geforce card with 21 billion transistors. That would be the Volta that Nvidia CEO Jensen launched back in May. That would be both risky and expensive. One of the key reasons is that Nvidia doesn’t really have to push the technology possibilities...

Ransomware-as-a-Service Now Targeting Macs

Security researchers have found the first evidence of ransomware-as-a-service (RaaS) affecting Apple machines, dubbed ‘MacRansom.’ Fortinet’s security research team, FortiGuard Labs, uncovered the tool, which uses a web portal hosted in a TOR network (an anonymous network that bounces the signal around a relay of volunteer computers, to conceal the source); an increasingly-popular form of attack. The variant is not readily available through the portal, and instead, buyers must...

Qualcomm Looks Past Samsung

Qualcomm has ended its foundry relationship with Samsung and opted for TSMC to produce its next-generation 7 nm semiconductor chips. It has been a bad year for Samsung, it has also lost the Apple contract to produce its iPhone application processors (AP). Samsung will not see all this impact straight away. It is entrusted to produce Qualcomm’s 10 nm APs and modem chips, but its operation rate of its factories will drop sharply starting from next year. Qualcomm has been designing and developing...

Is Apple Behind The Intel and AMD CPU-GPU Teaming

It has already mentioned the existence of an Intel based CPU with Radeon graphics. Our sources are very confident that Apple is the company behind this order. We called this deal licensing that led to many false conclusions but if Intel wants to use Radeon graphics it implies that there is some deal/license/cross license in place. Apple doesn’t want to use Nvidia graphics in any of its products and it currently only uses Radeon based GPUs discrete form for both its desktops and notebooks. It turns...
