Intel announced its latest 8th generation Core processors today, and is promising that the new chips will offer up to a 40 percent speed boost over the previous 7th generation Kaby Lake chips.

The 8th generation chips will be doing things a little differently from other generations. In the past, Intel has either used generational steps for introducing new chip architectures (say, the jump from 22nm to 14nm between Haswell and Broadwell) or to offer an improved version of the previous generation’s architecture (like Skylake, which was an upgraded version of the 14nm node).

Intel next-generation Thunderbolt_NAB2013
According to Intel, the next-generation Thunderbolt will be a multi-tasker that’s twice as fast. Although Thunderbolt ports have become standard on Macs since 2011, the high-speed ports are going to be incorporated into more PCs and motherboards this year as the technology matures and offers a significant advantage over existing standards like USB 3.0 and HDMI. Intel said it already has over 200 licensees that use its standard, including storage manufacturers like G-Tech.

Intel showed off hybrid tablets and ultrabook laptops with voice and gesture recognition technology along with an upcoming low-power chip in a bid to convince Wall Street a slump in the personal computer industry is only temporary.

At the annual Intel Developer Forum in San Francisco on Tuesday, the company demonstrated a range of mobile devices, many of them crosses between tablets and laptops. Executives showed sleek “ultrabook” laptops with improved gesture- and voice-recognition features, similar to those already found on some smartphones.

It was designed with mobility in mind … from sleek tablets to ultrabooks to high-performing desktops.

Intel’s upcoming processor, code-named Haswell and due to appear in a crop of laptops during next year’s holiday season, will improve on computing and graphics features and is targeted to reduce electricity consumption from 17 watts to 10 watts, according to the company.

New Delhi: Global computer chip manufacturer Intel, which partnered with Lava a couple of months back to launch the world’s first Intel Atom Z2460 mobile processor based smartphone Xolo 900, in India has got into partnership with another Indian handset brand, Karbonn, to launch an Intel based smartphone by the end of this year.

Pardeep Jain, managing director, Karbonn Mobiles, said to The Mobile Indian, “Karbonn Mobiles will launch an Intel based Android smartphone by year end in India.”

He added, “Our research and development team has been working with Intel on this project for quite some time now.” However, he didn’t reveal any further details regarding price or specifications.

Karbonn to launch Intel powered smartphone

Apart from Indian brands, many international players like Lenovo and Motorola have already started working on devices based on Intel’s mobile Atom chips and users can expect many Intel based devices in the market.

Intel Corp. said that PCs with chips from its new generation of processors, featuring a revolutionary design, will be available this week.

The new generation, code-named “Ivy Bridge,” is the first to be made with a 3-D structure. Miniature fins jut out of the plane of the chip, letting Intel cram more features into the same space. That means the chips can be faster while consuming less power.

Analysts have called it one of the most significant developments in silicon transistor design since the integrated circuit was invented in the 1950s. In terms of manufacturing technology, it puts Intel two to three years ahead of the competition, said Romit Shah at Nomura Securities. Read more HERE

Intel officially announced the high-end, third-generation Core “Ivy Bridge” processor today, and confirmed that more mainstream processors will be coming later.

As expected, Intel said that 13 quad-core i5 and i7 Ivy Bridge processor models are available starting today, aimed at high-end desktop, laptop, and all-in-one designs.

And the chipmaker confirmed that dual-core processors for ultrabooks and mainstream designs will be announced “in the coming months.”

Four Years Down the Road – A Quad-Channel Update to DDR3 Memory Support

Since 2007, Intel has been offering support for DDR3 memory modules with its 3-series chipsets (Bearlake) that supported both DDR3 and DDR2. Often, there wasn’t concurrent support for both DDR3 and DDR2 on the same 3-series chipset motherboard and users needed to make a choice of hanging on to their DDR2 memory modules while upgrading their boards, or take the high road of a complete upgrade of both memory modules and the motherboard.

Four years down the road, DDR3 memory technology has come a long way. With the launch of Intel’s X79 chipset and the accompanying second generation enthusiast Core i7 processor family (do read our Intel Core i7-3960X review) that supports quad-channel DDR3 memory architecture, this memory technology still has some room to grow. Naturally, we were curious about this new memory architecture from the Sandy Bridge-E (SB-E) processors and the benefits it may offer to the DDR3 memory technology. In our previous attempt to ascertain the benefits of a third memory controller for the previous generation of enthusiast Core i7 processors based on the Nehalem architecture, we found that it was of little assistance as the platform (the Sandy Bridge CPU with an X58 chipset motherboard) had more than enough bandwidth even on standard dual-channel memory – well, at least for the typical users.   Read more HERE
