Intel claimed that it maintained Moore's law scaling with a 10-nm SRAM that it described here at the International Solid-State Circuits Conference (ISSCC). However, Samsung followed by describing a smaller 256-Mbit SRAM made with extreme ultraviolet lithography and expressed confidence in EUV.
Ampere, a new chip company run by former Intel president Renee James, came out of stealth today with a brand-new highly efficient Arm-based server chip targeted at hyperscale data centers.
For several years, Apple has been steadily designing more and more of the chips powering its iPhones, iPads, Macs and Apple Watches.
The industry this year may see a microprocessor ship from startup Graphcore that uses no DRAM and one from rival Cerebras Systems that pioneers wafer-level integration. The hefty 2.5-D Nervana chip acquired by Intel is already sampling, and a dozen other processors are in the works. Meanwhile, chip companies from ARM to Western Digital are working on cores to accelerate the inference part of deep neural nets.
Intel says devices are rebooting more than usual after being patched with fixes it has issued to the Spectre and Meltdown security flaws in its chips. The company said it had reproduced the problem and was "making progress toward identifying the root cause".
A Democratic U.S. lawmaker asked Intel and two other microchip makers on Tuesday to provide a briefing on the recently detected Spectre and Meltdown security flaws that could allow hackers to steal information from most computers and devices.
When Intel and AMD announced they'd be cooperating on a new CPU with an Intel processor paired with an AMD GPU, it was easy to see who the loser was going to be. Nvidia has a dominant overall position in the GPU market, including the types of all-in-one and small form factor systems that might opt for one of Intel's new CPUs with Radeon RX Vega graphics rather than an Intel CPU with Nvidia GPU. Now, there's hints that Nvidia is planning to respond with a new GPU iteration of its own: The GTX 1050 Ti Max-Q.
We're getting a slightly clearer picture of the performance hits on PCs from the Spectre/Meltdown vulnerability patches.
In 1994, Intel faced a public relations crisis over an elusive mathematics glitch that affected the accuracy of calculations made by its popular Pentium computer chips. After insisting that the problem would not affect many people, the company succumbed to public pressure and recalled the chips, costing it $475 million.

Intel and Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) continue to respond to reports today of a chip flaw in Intel's parts that could pose security risks. To recap, an article overnight by The Register said the company has a flaw in its chips that it is working to address. The report pressured Intel shares today, even though Intel refuted what it called "inaccurate media reports."
Brian Krzanich, chief executive officer of Intel, sold millions of dollars' worth of Intel stock-all he could part with under corporate bylaws-after Intel learned of Meltdown and Spectre, two related families of security flaws in Intel processors.
Following Intel's disclosure that many of its chips have been vulnerable to hackers, the company said Thursday that it's been rolling out updates for most processors introduced in the past five years, with more on the way.
A serious flaw in the design of Intel's chips will require Microsoft, Linux and Apple to update operating systems for computers around the world. It is believed to affect chips in millions of computers from the last decade.
A serious design flaw and security vulnerability has been discovered in Intel's CPUs that will require an update at the operating system level to fix, reports The Register. All modern computers with Intel chips from the last 10 years appear to be affected, including those running Windows, Linux, and macOS.
AMD has had a fantastic past year. Its desktop-grade Ryzen microprocessors were successful in grabbing some x86 PC market share from Intel, which, in turn, nudged AMD back into profitability. And this might just be the start of the smaller chip-maker's newfound sales momentum. Advanced Micro Devices is readying up to launch a Ryzen Refresh line-up in the first quarter of 2018 on a slightly improved 12nm node.
A giant metal vehicle filled with a dozen or so people can strike fear in pedestrians and even other drivers. About 24,000 people are injured in bus accidents per year. This is due to the fact that most public buses have blind spots that leave pedestrians vulnerable to get hit, had they been in the wrong place at the wrong time. Technology developed by Israel-based Mobileye, which is an Intel subsidiary, is designed to cover these blind spots and save lives in the process.
If you thought this was a busy year for new processor releases, hold onto your knickers, it is about to get a whole lot busier. Looking at the release notes for the latest AIDA64 system diagnostics and benchmarking utility, there are several unannounced Intel processors on tap, including a mobile Core i9 processor and what appears to be a Coffee Lake refresh, due out sometime in 2018.
Security researchers have raised the alarm for years about the Intel remote administration feature known as the Management Engine. The platform has a lot of useful features for IT managers, but it requires deep system access that offers a tempting target for attackers; compromising the Management Engine could lead to full control of a given computer. Now, after several research groups have uncovered ME bugs, Intel has confirmed that those worst-case fears may be possible.
While Qualcomm currently has a more advanced 5G modem, Apple engineers believe Intel's technology will satisfy its requirements for a future iPhone.
In a product change notice, Intel stated that it will begin assembling Coffee Lake desktop CPUs at its plant located in Chengdu, China.

Apple continues to use a mix of Qualcomm and Intel cellular baseband processors in the iPhone X. Teardowns of the handsets also show that the company employed a combination of new and old tricks to pack features into its new flagship smartphone.
Ledger will integrate its Blockchain Open Ledger Operating System (Bolos) into Intel Software Guard Extensions, with the joint solution initially being deployed with cryptocurrency software wallets Electrum and MyEtherWallet.
A special-purpose chip for artificial intelligence and other tasks in Google's new Pixel smartphones draws on Intel technology.
As mobile devices have taken over our lives, PC sales, and sales of Intel's computer chips, have declined. Intel hasn't had a lot of luck transitioning to the mobile chips business, but it doesn't intend to let the same thing happen in the growing smart home market.In a small lab festooned with smart home gadgets in Intel's Santa Clara, California headquarters, Miles Kingston, general manager of Intel's Smart Home Division, mapped out for me how Intel plans to seize this opportunity.
The "light but mighty" (in speed and capacity) laptops from Dell, HP and Microsoft seem to me to be very expensive because Intel sells processors at premium prices. Now that AMD has produced Ryzen chips, can you foresee if and when these makers will produce desirable laptops with cheaper AMD chips?
