A Change.org petition has been set up asking Microsoft to allow more CPUs to run Windows 11, seeing as the 8th-generation Core i-Series processors and up are compatible, even though woefully underpowered select Atom, Celeron and Intel Pentium Gold and Silver processors are also on the list!
The United Kingdom has announced that it is looking afresh at the proposed deal between GPU vendor NVIDIA and CPU specialist ARM, with the former to buy the latter for US$40 billion (A$51.5 billion), on the grounds of national security.
AMD's new Epyc 7003 series CPUs are built with Zen 3 cores, and the range includes the Epyc 7763 which the company says is the world's highest-performing server processor, based on internal testing.
AMD's Ryzen 5000 series mobile processors will soon be available in laptops from Asus, HP, Lenovo and others.
Intel will be forced to delay the introduction of 7nm CPUs, with the company telling investors on Friday it would have to push back the schedule for producing the most advanced semiconductors by six months as it has no economically viable way to produce them at the moment.
Intel has begun shipping its Xeon W-3175X processor, designed for compute-intensive, highly-threaded workloads.
Worldwide shipments of PCs grew just 0.1% in the third quarter of 2018 compared to the corresponding quarter last year, to hit the 67.2 million unit mark, according to a new report from global analyst firm Gartner.
The head of the OpenBSD project, Theo de Raadt, has warned that more flaws related to speculative execution in Intel CPUs are likely to be found and that the two vulnerabilities found by Intel, as a result of examining the Foreshadow bug — found by two independent teams — are cause for much worry.
Recompiling is unlikely to be a catch-all solution for a recently unveiled Intel CPU vulnerability known as TLBleed, the details of which were leaked on Friday, the head of the OpenBSD project Theo de Raadt says.
A security researcher says a fix for a new vulnerability in Intel processors is likely to require changes to the core operating system and would probably need "a ton of work to mitigate (mostly app recompile)".
The OpenBSD project, which produces an UNIX-like operating system of the same name, has decided to disable support for hyperthreading for Intel processors as it could lead to data leaks in a manner similar to that caused by the Spectre flaws in Intel processors announced earlier this year.
Gigabyte's Aero 15 has been impressing the world for some time now. It's a noteable notebook in that it's a relatively thin, portable machine that is designed to fit into an executive office while simultaneously being able to play the latest games.
Processor giant Intel has told some of its customers that the microcode patches it issued to fix the Meltdown and Spectre flaws in its products are buggy and that they should not install them.
American multinational semiconductor and telecommunications equipment company Qualcomm admits some of its processors are vulnerable to the Meltdown and Spectre bugs but has refused to provide any clarity on exactly which products are affected.
Intel chief executive Brian Krzanich has avoided making any mention of his controversial sale of stock and options in a keynote at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, though he did touch on the two vulnerabilities found in most processors produced by the company he heads.
Disclosure of the Meltdown and Spectre vulnerabilities, which affect mainly Intel CPUs, was handled "in an incredibly bad way" by both Intel and Google, the leader of the OpenBSD project Theo de Raadt claims.
Linux creator Linus Torvalds has had some harsh words for Intel in the course of a discussion about patches for two bugs that were found to affect most of the company's processors.
Serious security flaws caused by "speculative execution" have been found in Intel CPUs from the Pentium Pro onwards, with multiple research teams being credited with the discoveries.
Oracle is preparing to release the next generation of the SPARC processor family it inherited on the acquisition of Sun Microsystems, the fifth in four years.
Chipmaker AMD is aiming for substantial energy efficiency gains in its products over the rest of the decade.
