After 20 years of being a loud resounding yawn in the computer world, Intel has finally put its Itanium product to sleep.
Up to 80Gbps
Chipzilla is finally getting around to boosting the transfer rate of its Thunderbolt tech,
Analysis: Intel 7, Intel 4 Intel 3, and Intel A20 angstrom
The nanometer branding has been quite an inaccurate way to describe the transition size and the performance. After maintaining desktop and especially mobile leadership for the most part with 14nm, Intel is happy to report that the second-generation 10 nm is in heavy volume. 10nm is now represented more than 14nm volume, but Intel decided to change the way it calls its manufacturing processes.
Sales down for the end of the year
Chipzilla said it is still facing supply chain constraints and gave an annual sales forecast that means it will be a dismal Christmas.
Intel's next-gen beats AMD's existing gen
An engineering sample of Intel's next flagship processor, the i9-12900K, was shown to beat AMD's current flagship 5950X in Cinebench R20 by 18 percent in multi-core and 28 percent in single-core tests.
Acquisition is the only way and there are not that many people to buy
Intel Chief Executive Kicking Pat Gelsinger's plans to make Intel great again by increasing fab numbers is hitting a snag -- Intel can't wait to build its own and there are not many fabs up for sale.
If it can make it there, it can make it anywhere
Mobileye, the company that specialises in chips for vision-based autonomous vehicles, is now testing its AVs in New York City. This is a bit tricky because New York has harsh restrictions around such testing.
Will cost $30 billion
The Wall Street Journal claims that Intel is exploring a deal to buy GlobalFoundries in a move that would turbocharge the semiconductor giant's plans to make more chips for other tech companies and rate as its largest acquisition ever.
Core i5, Core i7, and Core i9 SKUs
Expected to launch by the end of this year, or in early 2021, the first alleged specifications of Intel's Alder Lake-S CPUs have leaked online.
Economic academics agree Intel squandered its lead trying to impress shareholders
A couple of economic academics have penned a rather interesting paper claiming that Intel will not catch up to TSMC and SEC in semiconductor fabrication.
