10nm Cannon lake and price drops are the answer
AMD had a big day with its Ryzen launch which is the most important for AMD for years. Many didn’t believe it would even happen, but AMD has a product that competes with Intel’s fastest chips. Now, one might wonder what Intel is planning to counter it and we have a few ideas.
Will need at least a seventh-generation Kaby Lake processor
If you were hoping to get your paws on Chipzilla’s delayed Optane non-volatile memory devices you might need to also invest in a Kaby Lake system.
Cisco already admitted it
It is starting to look like Intel’s Atom C2000 chip fiasco has spread to another networking manufacturer.
The needs of the many
Chipzilla has announced that it is supporting the open source Vulkan APIs.
Performance good, stock price good
Fudzilla reported a few times that Zen and the desktop part Ryzen are a crucial part of AMD’s strategy in the future. The fact that our sources confirm that Ryzen will compete well against Core i7 Extreme edition will definitely help AMD’s stock.
15 percent figure touted
Intel was showing a slide at its investor day yesterday which claims that Cannonlake will give a 15 percent performance improvement.
Reality out to lunch
This week US president Donald Trump and the Intel CEO Brian Krzanich got together to pretend that Chipzilla was bowing before his glorious orangeness’s demands to set up US factories.
Force themselves into retirement after a couple of years
Chipzilla’s Atom C2000 processor family is shipping with a fault which is going to cost Intel a boatload of cash to fix.
The Core i7-7740K and Core i5-7640K
There have been quite a few rumors floating around that Intel is hard at work in preparing a response to AMD's upcoming Zen-based Ryzen CPUs and it appears that these will not be Kaby Lake-S CPUs but rather the new Kaby Lake-X CPUs, the Core i7-7740K and the Core i5-7640K.
Intel simply cannot get a break it seems. The company faked drones flying in the super bowl 51 and in reality, the whole Lady Gaga Intel and Pepsi logo parade was recorded a week earlier. The FAA would not allow 300 drones to fly over the heads of tens of thousands of people.
