Intel promises more powerful, longer-running PCs at Computex

  Intel promises more powerful, longer-running PCs at Computex A look at new CPUs, multiscreen PC prototypes and laptop screens that use less power.One important theme of Intel's announcements is that PCs, especially laptops, are still by far the most-used platform for creation and productivity. Bryant says, "When people really need to get things done, over 80 percent turn to their PC.

There's no telling which market Intel is targeting first , but either way, both NVIDIA and AMD should take notice. As Shrout points out, even a 2020 release seems surprisingly fast for Intel . While that partnership was surprising at first , it ' s most clearly a stopgap plan until Intel can deliver its own GPUs .

Raja working on Intel Arctic Sound discrete GPU for gaming, will be an MCM product. The industry had been abuzz with speculation ever since Intel first announced its plans to enter the discrete GPU market.

That confirmation came in a short tweet today: Intel plans to release its first discrete GPU -- one that isn't integrated into a CPU like its current graphics -- in 2020.

In a meeting with analysts last week, Intel executive Navin Shenoy noted that it's exploring both server and client (gaming and professional graphics) offerings, according to Ryan Shrout. There's no telling which market Intel is targeting first, but either way, both NVIDIA and AMD should take notice.

Arsenal must pay release clause to land French international

  Arsenal must pay release clause to land French international Arsenal have been told that they must meet Steven N’Zonzi’s release clause if they want to sign him this summer. According to The Independent, Arsenal will have to pay N’Zonzi’s £35m release clause in order to bring him back to England over the next few months. The report claims that Sevilla are unwilling to sell N’Zonzi, meaning Arsenal have no option but to take the matter out of Sevilla’s hand and match the clause. Unai Emery is eager to complete a deal for N’Zonzi, having previously worked with him at Sevilla. The new Arsenal boss has already signed Stephan Lichtsteiner from Juventus on a free transfer, and looks set to add Sokratis from Borussia Dortmund in the coming days. N’Zonzi signed a contract with Sevilla in 2017, with his deal expiring in 2020.

The giant chip manufacturer Intel is betting heavily on dedicated GPUs , hence, it has just unveiled its first discrete GPU prototype. This chip is not going to be released in the short term to the market, but it does show that Intel is taking this new path very seriously.

Look out AMD and Nvidia, Intel could get into the graphics card game by 2020 . Its “Arctic Sound” and “Jupiter Sound” discrete GPUs were originally intended to spend their lives toiling away in data But according to Ashraf Eassa of The Motley Fool, Intel ’s graphics chief Raja Koduri has other plans .

As Shrout points out, even a 2020 release seems surprisingly fast for Intel. When it announced Koduri's hiring last November, along with the formation of a new Core and Visual Computing Group, Intel was basically starting from scratch. While the company's integrated graphics technology has steadily improved over the years, it still can't hold a candle to the performance of a dedicated GPU. That's one reason why Intel teamed up with AMD to integrate a Radeon GPU into a Core processor, which would allow for decent gaming performance in thin and light machines. While that partnership was surprising at first, it's most clearly a stopgap plan until Intel can deliver its own GPUs.

Intel now faces a fight for its future .
Intel is facing a turning point in its nearly 50-year history. Intel CEO Brian Krzanich resigned yesterday, following an ongoing investigation into a past consensual relationship with an Intel employee that violated the company’s non-fraternization policy. Krzanich was appointed Intel CEO five years ago, and was left with the messy task of fleshing out Intel’s mobile strategy and driving the company forward in new markets. Known for PCs and servers, Intel’s business has been disrupted by smartphones and the cloud, and was caught seemingly unaware by the rise of AI and autonomous vehicles.
