Intel has agreed to settle a class action lawsuit that alleged that the company manipulated benchmark scores for its first generation Pentium 4 Processors. The suits also alleges that Hawelett-Packard helped Intel manipulate scores in order to cover up “pervasive design flaws” that resulted in “dismal” performance compared to previous generation Pentium III and AMD Athlon CPUs.
Intel has started to talk about the first details of their next-generation high-end desktop (HEDT) processors codenamed “Braodwell-E”. These Core i7 HEDT processors will be built in the existing LGA2011-3 package and will be compatible with current X99 motherboards (likely with a BIOS update).
We have been hearing rumors about Intel’s Skylake for a while now, but we now have something better than the rumors, an actual photograph of the chip. The below photograph is of a sample that has been sent out to motherboard manufacturers for testing.
Normally when Intel launches a product it is a pretty big deal, but for some reason they have quietly released their Meegopad T01 HDMI TV stick. Now normally we see ARM hardware inside of these small HDMI sticks, but of course Intel’s version boasts an x86 foundation inside that is actually capable of running Windows 8.1!
Razer started out as a gaming peripheral company back in 1998 and over the years we have reviewed quite a lot of their products. Recently they have expanded into gaming laptops, tablets and even wearable devices. Things have not always been good for Razer, back in 2001 there were rumors they were going bankrupt, but just recently they have closed a round of funding with Intel on a valuation of at least $1 billion.
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 IFA, a global trade show for consumer electronics and home appliances, Intel launched the new Intel Core M processor, which will power new 2 in 1 devices from a variety of manufacturers including: Acer, ASUS, Dell, HP, Lenovo and Toshiba. Delivering the optimal blend of mobility and performance, Intel’s new processor was purpose-built for amazing performance in the thinnest, fanless ultra-mobile devices.
We have been hearing about Intel’s next-generation Haswell-E processors for some time now and they have finally arrived. For people running older HEDT (high-end desktop) systems it has been quite a while waiting around for an upgrade. The Haswell-E HEDT (high-end desktop) lineup is at hand and it is made up three high end enthusiast processors, the Core i7-5960X, Core i7-5930K, and Core i7-5820K. Today we are going to be taking a look at the flagship processor of this group or as I call it the big daddy of the bunch, the Core i7-5960X. This extreme edition processor features 8 cores, 16 threads, 20 MB of L3 cache, a 40-lane PCI-Express root complex and DDR4 support. This will be Intel’s first 8-core desktop processor as well as the first consumer platform to support DDR4 memory, so it is a very exciting time for people looking to upgrade to the newest offering. The Core i7-5960X will have a base frequency of 3.0 GHz and a turbo frequency of 3.5 GHz. This processor is not for the faint of heart though; it has an MSRP of $999! ThinkComputers is excited to get this tough guy on the test bench and see what he can do!
We have been hearing many different rumors on Haswell-E pricing, but VideoCardz has revealed the pricing for Intel’s next-generation HEDT (high-end desktop) processors in leaked press slides that they have obtained.
Intel’s 4th Generation Core i7 HEDT (high-end desktop) processors codenamed “Haswell-E” along with the accompanying X99 chipset will be launched at the end of this week. With this launch we will see a whole slew of new motherboards and since this will be the first consumer platform to support DDR4 we will see many new DDR4 modules as well. Today we will be going over what we know about the upcoming processors, X99 chipset, new motherboards and DDR4 memory. If you are interested in the upcoming HEDT platform then this article should give you all of the information that you need.
