If comments by Intel this past week are to be believed, we may be heading toward a paradigm shift in computing where new chips feature significantly reduced power consumption at the expense of performance.
A microcode update from Intel will shut down support for non-K overclocking via base clock adjustments on Skylake CPUs. This means that manufacturers like ASRock have also had to roll back features like Sky OC that provided budget users with a more affordable entry into the overclocking game.
Intel and Qualcomm, two leading wireless semiconductor vendors, have teamed up to create a comprehensive WiGig ecosystem to ensure smoother adoption when the technology finally arrives in the mainstream market.
According to a The Motley Fool report, Intel is planning to name its third, 10nm processor series as Tigerlake. Read more about the chip maker’s plans with its move to fabricate transistors at this lower scale.
At CES 2016, ASRock unveiled motherboards that would enable locked multiplier CPUs to be overclocked on even non-Z170 motherboards. But while this sounds like a great development for gamers on a budget, there are still a handful of significant risks and trade-offs to be aware of.
Intel wants to make business computing, a streamlined and hassle-free experience by leveraging on its 6th generation vPro enterprise platform. With both hardware and software services, Intel also aims to reduce the overall cost of implementing such services. Uncover more details about this platform refresh here.
