Intel’s Cannon Lake Goes 802.11ac Wi-Fi

Benchlife has come up with an Intel slide which appears to show he upcoming 300-series chipsets intended for use with the chip giant’s “Cannon Lake” processor family. One of the most unusual things is that the chips will have support for USB 3.1 (10 Gbps) and 802.11ac Wi-Fi. Other than that the 300-series chipsets are a bit of a yawn and look too close to the 200-series offerings. They have connectivity for up to 24 lanes of PCIe 3.0, up to 10 USB 3.0 ports, and six 6Gbps SATA...

Will Light Induced-RAM Be A Hit?

A Vancouver Island chemist has come up a light induced magnetoresistive random-access memory (LI-RAM), uses light instead of electricity to store and process data. Natia Frank said that if the invention can be commercialised data will be easier to store. He developed it as part of an international effort to reduce the power consumption and heat produced by modern computer processors. Frank says the material in LI-RAM has the unusual quality of rapidly changing magnetic properties when hit with...

Although this is not a particularly high number you have to acknowledge that this is one security company and on a single machine. It appears that after years of leaving Macs alone, virus writers are suddenly taking an interest in knocking them...
