Intel May Deploy AVX-512 in Upcoming 10nm Cannon Lake CPUs

This site may earn affiliate commissions from the links on this page. Terms of use. When Intel launched Skylake-SP (aka the Core X-series) earlier this year, one of the major features of the product family, in addition to a revamped L2 cache structure, was its support for Intel’s latest SIMD instruction set, AVX-512. AVX-512 has previously been reserved for Intel’s HPC (High-Performance Computing) Knights Landing. But Intel launched it as a feature in some of its Xeon Scalable Processors and the Skylake-SP-derived Core i9 and Core i7 CPUs launched earlier ...

Poynton lake death: Detective was 'tireless worker'

A detective found dead in a lake was a “tireless worker” and “popular figure” among colleagues, Greater Manchester Police (GMP) has said. The body of Leanne McKie, 39, was discovered in the early hours of Friday in Poynton, Cheshire. Chief Constable Ian Hopkins said the mother-of-three worked in the sexual offences unit and sought justice for victims. A man, 43, from Wilmslow remains in custody on suspicion of murder. Cheshire Police said her death appeared to be “an isolated incident” and officers were not looking for anyone else. Mr Hopkins ...

Intel’s Upcoming Coffee Lake Z370 Motherboards Aren’t Backwards Compatible

This site may earn affiliate commissions from the links on this page. Terms of use. Intel’s Coffee Lake refresh represents the largest performance refresh we’ve seen from the company since the Sandy Bridge era. While the benefits will primarily impact users who run multi-threaded workloads, many programs these days support four or more threads. Even when applications aren’t multi-threaded, having more cores can keep a system running smoothly when multiple single-threaded applications are running. All in all, it’s a big step forward for Intel customers, but anyone hoping to upgrade ...

Intel’s Coffee Lake Refresh Offers Up to 6 Cores, Goes On Sale Oct. 5

This site may earn affiliate commissions from the links on this page. Terms of use. Intel’s Coffee Lake desktop CPUs will launch in a little over a week, offering substantially higher performance than the iterative improvements we’ve seen since Sandy Bridge. It’s a clear response to AMD’s Ryzen, which currently offers better multi-threaded performance and higher core counts than Intel’s Core i3, i5, and i7 family. Intel has resisted dropping the price on its CPUs, but it’s fighting back in another way–by adding more cores to existing parts. The Core ...

Rumor: Intel Has Pushed 10nm Cannon Lake Back to 2018

This site may earn affiliate commissions from the links on this page. Terms of use. Intel has already delayed Cannon Lake several times, as it tweaks the process and pulls the rollout back on track, but the company’s efforts may not have been enough. There are multiple reports Intel has pushed Cannon Lake back into 2018, though evidence is scant on the ground. The basis for the rumor appears to be an image that sites like PatentlyApple are claiming prove a delay. Here’s the relevant image; PatentlyApple describes this as: ...

Intel Coffee Lake Benchmarks Leak, Launch Rumored for October 5

This site may earn affiliate commissions from the links on this page. Terms of use. Intel’s upcoming Coffee Lake refresh is expected to boost core counts in response to AMD’s Ryzen launches from earlier this year. Now we’ve got some benchmark results on the upcoming Core i7-8700K, at least if the leaked data is accurate. (As always, take such information as rumor, pre-release data, etc, etc). There are two sets of results, both rounded up by VideoCardz. In Cinebench R15, the Core i7-8700K (six cores, 12 threads, 3.7GHz base clock, ...

Intel’s Kaby Lake NUCs Now Offer Optane Memory

This site may earn affiliate commissions from the links on this page. Terms of use. Earlier this year, Intel launched its Optane memory storage accelerators. The new drives, based on 3D XPoint technology, aren’t really faster than the SSD cache drives we’ve written about in the past, but the standard is relatively new and the technology is still under development. Now, Intel is hoping to boost adoption of Optane memory by bundling it with multiple NUCs (Next Unit of Computing) or, as we call them, “Desktops for People Who Hate ...

Rumor: Prices Leak for Intel’s Coffee Lake

This site may earn affiliate commissions from the links on this page. Terms of use. Intel hasn’t said anything official about Coffee Lake yet — the 8th generation launch yesterday only alluded to desktop products coming in the fall. Newly leaked data suggests what price targets Intel will aim for, and how the new chips will fit into existing lineups — and while the positioning is fairly solid, AMD is likely to still put up a significant fight. VideoCardz caught this leak, along with pricing for the chips in Canadian ...

Intel’s ‘New’ 8th Generation Processors are Built on Kaby Lake, Add Additional Cores

This site may earn affiliate commissions from the links on this page. Terms of use. Ever since Intel introduced the first-generation Core i7, it’s followed a predictable series numbering. First-generation Core processors were codenamed Nehalem, second-generation CPUs were Sandy Bridge, followed by Ivy Bridge (3rd), Haswell, (4th) and so on. In each case, new chips — whether they were die shrinks or new architectures — were assigned a new product number. Today, with its 8th-generation chips, Intel is explicitly changing that policy. Unlike previous product generations, the 8th-generation launching today ...
