Don't-Miss Processor Stories
It's the end of the line for Intel's Itanium chip, a troubled processor family that spawned many product delays and bad blood between HP and Oracle.
Research into artificial intelligence is going gangbusters, and the frenetic pace won't let up for about five years, the head of Intel's new AI division predicts.
The graphics processor in Apple's upcoming iPhone could have been based on Imagination's new PowerVR Series8XT GT8525. Instead, the two vendors are locked in an open battle, and Imagination is threatening legal action against Apple, which is developing a homegrown GPU.
Low-cost smartphones like the Moto G5 introduced a few months ago are now shipping with Qualcomm chips that will soon be outdated.
Starting next week, PC makers will roll out a patch that fixes a severe vulnerability found in certain Intel-based business systems making them easier to hack.
After around half a decade, Intel is wiping the confusing E5 and E7 monikers off the Xeon chips, and rebranding them to bring more clarity on the performance and features that come with the processors.
Qualcomm, in a smartphone chip licensing spat with Apple, will reportedly ask a U.S. government agency to ban the import of iPhones into the country.
Tired of the domination of x86, ARM, and other closed chip architectures, researchers created the open-source RISC-V architecture at the University of California, Berkeley, in 2010.
