Among other cool stuff like a new line of Pentium and Celeron CPUs, it seems Intel is working on it’s own discrete GPU solution. The current prototype is a low power example, but I’d assume the long term goal is some sort of competition to Nvidia and AMD. — more
It seems a serious hardware flaw with Intel’s x86 line of CPUs has been uncovered. According to The Register, there’s a nasty leak in the kernel memory on almost all of Intel’s x86 chips from the last ten years. This could potentially allow software to access protected kernel memory contents without proper authentication. — more
So it appears Apple has intentionally throttled older iPhones in iOS 11. I use an iPhone 6S as my daily phone and definitely noticed some stuttering and lag when I upgraded to iOS 11, but I chalked it up to a new OS being a bit more demanding. — more
Well done, Jim. Well done.
It seems Volta is worth getting excited about. With gains ranging from 15-25% over the Pascal Titan Xp card, this new architecture is looking to be a nice leap over Nvidia’s current lineup. A smaller manufacturing process means more cores, and the move from GDDR5X to HBM2 improves the memory bandwidth significantly. — more
The new GTX 1070 Ti card essentially makes the GTX 1080 useless. It’s slightly cheaper and easy to overclock to just about meet 1080 performance. Although, if you can find a 1080 for cheaper then that’s a better buy. It’s weird. — more
