This site may earn affiliate commissions from the links on this page. Terms of use. We’ve said from the beginning Apple could be facing a serious problem with the iPhone 8, 8 Plus, and iPhone X. As demand for the first two has failed to materialize, and with Apple X shipments still far below what the company will need to meet demand, Apple’s decision to launch the iPhone X could whack its finances. Now there are reports that the company has cut iPhone 8 production by as much as 50 ...

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 ...

Trump responds to Barcelona terror attack by spreading debunked rumor

Tapper: Trump told the world to study a lie President Donald Trump said on Tuesday that before he makes a statement on an important matter he likes to “know the facts” and “be correct.” On Thursday, he responded to the Barcelona terror attack by spreading a debunked rumor. “Study what General Pershing of the United States did to terrorists when caught,” Trump urged his 36.1 million Twitter followers. “There was no more Radical Islamic Terror for 35 years!” Trump was likely referring to a supposed practice of shooting Muslims with ...

This site may earn affiliate commissions from the links on this page. Terms of use. Intel hasn’t officially commented on any of its plans for the upcoming Coffee Lake family, or how much additional performance we can expect from its third-generation 14nm technology (tentatively called 14nm++).

Now we’ve seen rumors that this could extend to the Core i3 family, with possible quad-core chips arriving later this year or early next. The ...

Rumor: Intel Planning 12-Core Core i9 CPUs to Challenge AMD’s Ryzen

Since it launched in early March, AMD’s Ryzen 7 and Ryzen 5 families have blown holes in Intel’s midrange and high-end desktop product segments. It was only a matter of time until Chipzilla retaliated, and a leaked slide from a German presentation suggests that Intel is stepping up its own Skylake-X HEDT (High End DeskTop) platforms. According to the leaked information, Intel will offer a top-end 12-core Core i9-7920X, with 24 threads and 16.5MB of L3 cache, with 44 PCIe 3.0 lanes. Base clock and turbo frequencies are all TBD, ...

Rumor: Intel Will Launch Coffee Lake, Basin Falls Earlier Than Expected

Over the past six weeks, AMD’s Ryzen 5 and Ryzen 7 CPUs have been making Intel’s life a bit difficult. Chipzilla’s standard desktop lineup has been rattled by AMD’s new chips, which offer higher core counts and better performance in many workloads for significantly less money. Intel, of course, was never going to take this lying down — and new rumors suggest the company will accelerate the launch of its Skylake-X and Kaby Lake-X CPUs, pulling them forward to a June Computex unveiling as opposed to the original August timeline. ...

Rumor: AMD may be planning a 16-core, 32-thread Ryzen titan to challenge Intel’s Broadwell-E, Skylake-X

AMD’s Ryzen 7 1800X, 1700X, and 1700 all debuted earlier this month, officially putting Intel on notice that Team Green was back and ready to fight. Now, there’s a rumor making the rounds that Ryzen 18 may not be the end of AMD’s desktop ambitions. Supposedly, there’s a chip coming that would go toe-to-toe with Intel’s HEDT line. Obligatory reminder: Take this with enough salt to kill a donkey. Here’s the text of the rumor, as reported by FLCLimax, at Overclock.net: Public knowledge by now but AMD has a new ...

Rumor: Nvidia’s Volta to be built on TSMC’s ‘new’ 12nm process

Nvidia’s Pascal GPU family has been tremendously successful, but the company is already looking ahead to a new architecture, codenamed Volta. Details on the chip are scarce, though Nvidia has previously given guidance that Volta would be its first HBM2 product and would feature a stacked memory architecture. Now, rumors are flying that the chip will actually be built on TSMC’s “new” 12nm node. The reason we’ve put the word in quotes is because 12nm isn’t really a new node at all. Here’s how TSMC’s CC Wei described it in ...

Rumor: Apple may add wireless charging to iPhone 8, but top-end model could cost $1,000

There are rumors swirling around the iPhone 8 suggesting Apple could be planning to offer a major technology leap forward with its 10th Anniversary iPhone, but the highest-end devices may not be cheap. Business Insider has published a pair of rumors on various aspects of the upcoming iPhone 8. KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo Apple will move back to all-glass construction with the iPhone 8 for all three models. The use of glass could make it more difficult to implement the wireless charging support Kuo expects the new device to ...
