Does Windows 10 Support Intel’s Atom Chip

Does Windows 10 Support Intel’s Atom Chip

While most people expected that Windows 10 would last a while, it appears that some Intel users will not get feature updates. ZDNet’s Ed Bott has written that systems built around Intel’s Clover Trail Atom processors are blocked from installing Windows 10 Version 1703, known as the Creators Update. For those with the memory of goldfish, Intel’s Clover Trail Atom processors are generally low-cost, low-power machines released between 2012 and 2015. The devices that the chips are...

Does Apple Prefer Qualcomm 4G Inside

Our well-informed sources are whispering that Apple might order more Qualcomm 4G modems for the upcoming iPhone compared to the orders for iPhone 7 and 7 Plus.  The reason is simple, most US carriers wants to play the Gigabit LTE card for the holiday season, especially in the US and, guess what, Intel’s XMM 7480 doesn’t support it. Fudzilla has talked a lot about the fact that Intel will get inside of the iPhone business and this has happened with the debut of the iPhone 7 / 7 Plus using Intel’s...

Intel’s Core X Appears To Be In High Demand

Intel’s Core X Appears To Be In High Demand

Intel seems to have made a mistake over the demand for its eight- and 10-core Core X processors for the high-end desktop market. Word on the street is that you can’t get your paws on eight- and 10-core Core X processors for love or money. Part of the issue is that the Skylake-X-based Core X chips were based on the same chips Intel sells to its data-centre customers in the form of Xeon Scalable Processors. These punters are given more priority as data-centre customers generally dramatically outnumber...

Pricing For AMD’s Ryzen 1300X Leaked

According to a Reddit post, upcoming Ryzen 3 SKUs, the Ryzen 3 1300X and the Ryzen 3 1200, will be hitting the market at US $129 and US $109 (exc. VAT), respectively. While AMD has revealed a lot of details regarding its two upcoming quad-core Ryzen 3 SKUs yesterday, including the clocks and the launch date, we are still missing a couple of key details, including the TDP, amount of cache and the price. In case you missed it yesterday, both Ryzen 3 SKUs are quad-core parts without SMT (Simultaneous...

Is Intel Worried About AMD’s Epyc Processor

Intel is clearly feeling a little insecure about AMD’s new Epyc Server processor range based on the RyZen technology. Intel’s press office retreated to the company safe and pulled out its favorite pink handbag and emerged swinging. It did a direct comparison between the two, and in one slide, it mentioned that the Epyc processor was ‘inconsistent’, and called it ‘glued together’. Intel noted that it required a lot of optimisations to get it to work effectively, comparing...

Will NotPetya Victim Get The Files Vack

The so-called ‘NotPetya’ ransomware, which was first identified in Ukraine and quickly spread worldwide, is reportedly designed to destroy data with the ransomware element intended as little more than a cover. Security software company Kaspersky has warned that there is “little hope for victims to recover their data” if they fall victim to the ransomware bastard because the installation ID displayed in the ransomware note, sent with the ransom so that the appropriate decryption...

IBM Ahead Of Energy Emission Goals

IBM has met its emissions reduction and renewable energy targets four years ahead of schedule, the company has confirmed. IBM announced late last week that has cut emissions associated with its energy consumption by over 38 per cent against a 2005 baseline, beating its target to cut emissions 35 per cent by 2020. The company also confirmed the reductions in emissions had been driven in large part by last year meeting its target to source a fifth of its power from renewables by 2020. It said that...

Toshiba Launches 4-bit NAND Flash Memory

Toshiba has announced the latest generation of 3D flash memory, the 4-bit-per-cell, quadruple-level cell (QLC) technology NAND flash memory. Thanks to the QLC technology, which features a 64-layer stacked cell structure, Toshiba managed to hit the world’s largest die capacity of 768Gb/96GB. This also enables a 1.5TB (terabyte) device with a 16-die stacked architecture in a single package, which is also a 50 percent increase in capacity per package compared to the earlier generation. Since QLC...

Intel Add More Life To The IoT

Intel has doubled the lifecycle support for its whole series of Internet of Things (IoT) solutions platforms from seven years to 15 years. The move is part of a cunning plan to gain the confidence of its partners in the IoT supply chains and step up the development of IoT-related processor platforms and chipsets. This will push up Intel’s operating costs, but it might just convince supply-chain partners and accelerate development of IoT solutions and applications. Intel, Qualcomm and Microsoft...

Will Samsung Become The Largest Chip Manufacturer This Year

The days of Intel being the world’s largest chip maker will be over in the second quarter as the mighty Intel has been felled by Samsung. Nomura Securities said the South Korean consumer electronics maker will likely generate sales of $15.1 billion from semiconductors in the April through June period, higher than the $14.4 billion Intel is expected to have in the same time frame. Nomura analyst CW Chung thinks Samsung will be the larger chipmaker with sales of $63.6 billion compared to Intel’s...

Is Hyper-Threading Broken On Intel’s Kaby Lake And Skylake Processors?

While the war is blazing between Intel and AMD fanboys over the superiority of the latest range of chips, Debian developers have spotted some rather nasty coding in Intel’s latest creations. During April and May, Intel started updating processor documentation with a new errata note and it turned out that the reason was that Skylake and Kaby Lake silicon has a microcode bug it did not want any one to find out about. The errata is described in detail on the Debian mailing list, and affects Skylake...

Is The High-End PC Market The Most Profitable

Acer has been focuing on flogging high-margin PCs including gaming notebooks, ultra-thin models and 2-in-1s, and it appears to be paying off. Acer CEO Jason Chen said that each segment has been doing well this year. Acer’s revenues from its gaming PC business reached $300 million in 2016 and Acer has been outperforming the market average in many product lines. Chen said that during the first five months of 2017, Acer’s gaming PC sales went up 80 per cent  from the same period a year ago, while...

Will Imagination Technologies Be Acquired

Imagination Technologies, which lost 70 per cent of its value after Apple dumped it earlier this year, has announced that it’s putting itself up for sale. Imagination said back in April that Apple planned to stop licensing its designs within ’15 to 24 months’ in favor of developing its own graphics chips, which came as a blow to the company that relies on the iPhone maker for about half of its revenue. After announcing plans to flog its two of its businesses, its embedded processor...
