Intel’s NUC (next unit of computing) ultra-compact desktop has been becoming increasingly popular, giving users the same performance of desktops that are ten times its size. Intel NUC units have been limited to Core i5 processors, but it looks like Intel will be changing that. Intel is working on a new unit that will feature a Core i7 processor based on Intel’s 5th generation “Broadwell” technology.
In Intel’s latest Q4 earnings report they have confirmed that Skylake will land in the second half of 2015, but 10 nm is still a far ways off. Intel’s CEO Brian Krzanich has confirmed that the Broadwell delay has not affected the Skylake launch schedule. Intel still plans to release Skylake in the second half of this year around back to school time.
Dell took the time to show us one of their latest laptops at CES 2015, their XPS 13. This was one of the products at the show everyone was talking about. The thing that makes this laptop so unique is that it has a virtually borderless infinity display, giving the user a truly immersive experience when using the device.
Apple will be refreshing their popular Macbook Air very soon. The new Macbook Air will have a 12-inch screen, and we have heard the rumors as we are sure you have of a retina screen. No word yet on that, but we also have details on other aspects of the hardware inside the next Macbook Air.
A new version of Intel’s NUC (next unit of computing) was spotted on the company’s website over the weekend. This version of the NUC is believed to be based off the companies Core Broadwell processors.
Intel is very excited about their ambitious Core M processor and were showing it off at IDF 2014. The performance segment dual-core processor has a thermal envelope of only 4.5W, which makes it ideal for tablets, ultra-portables, and mainstream desktops.
At the Maker Faire this past weekend Reuters got to talk to Intel CEO Brian Krzanich, who confirmed that we would see the companies upcoming Broadwell chips in PCs sold during the holiday season.
We have been hearing a lot of rumors that Intel’s upcoming 14nm Broadwell generation of CPUs are going to be delayed. They had been on track to launch in Q3 of 2014, but that might not be happening. First off the M Series and desktop parts will not be delayed at all, but the Y, U and H Series will be delayed.
Intel’s next gen processor which was based on the 14nm fabrication process has finally been seen now. And Broadwell will be benefiting the notebook/laptop platform and this most typically picks up the most from any progressions in the productivity and efficiency of the TDP.
