It's basically a flat compute stick. http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/compute-card/intel-compute-card.html
When Intel introduced it, they said it will work with processors up to 6W, which includes not just Atoms, but also some decent performance Y-class processors (3.3GHz, 2c/4t)...
ahahahahahahaha, what could possibly go wrong?
Microsoft Details Gaming Enhancements Coming With Windows 10 Creators Update
For some reason MS has confused the idea that a PC is a gaming console. Sadly, this is just another bit of proof that MS considers the OS installed on YOUR computer to...
As another pointless strategy decision, Google decided to get rid of the native look of Chrome and force the hideous Material theme on all Chrome and Chromium users, regardless of OS. Before you could disable the Material theme in flags, but that option was removed.
That pretty much did it for...
If you only want the security updates, you'll have to download and install it outside of Windows Update. Links to 7 and 8.1 are here: Don’t install any updates yet – but here’s where to find them @ AskWoody
MS is supposed to make the Update Catalog compatible with other browsers, but I think...
I'm not sure how useful those particular images are for doing anything significant, but the concept seems to work fairly decently. Some even worked (usable, speed-wise) on Android with Chrome.
There are instructions for turning various versions of Windows Server into a "workstation" desktop OS. There have typically been few reasons to do so, aside some very specific uses (based on functionality only available in the server OS version, or simply because someone wants to try it). And...

AMD accuses BAPCo and Intel of cheating with Sysmark benchmarks
If you remember why AMD rage quit BAPCo in 2011, it's basically the same thing again. For some reason AMD believes that standard office work revolves around offloading tasks to the GPU (it didn't in 2011 and still doesn't today)...
The new Atom model is based on Airmont/Cherry Trail (x5-Z8300, 4c/4t, 2W) and has better WiFi than the first model and adds a USB 3.0 port. $159
The other two use Core m3-6Y30 or Core...
They overclocked an i3-6100 to 4.7GHz using BCLK. It's about time overclocking returned to Intel's side without a price premium.
That overclocked dual core chip can almost hang with the stock speed 8 core 8320E...
What's strange about these ones is that it looks less like an actual standalone product than a demo for future embedded very low power microcontrollers (like...
If you have an issue with how much data Microsoft collects on Windows 10, MS has been sneaking the same types of data collection on 7/8.x for many months as "Important Updates" with no mention on the update information page about what each really does.
For an eye opener, open up task scheduler...
It's not that they're completely absent, because you can find each of those in systems, but something just isn't right about this. It's not just a slow launch. It seems more deliberate.
Chips have trickled out with slow starts for many years, and whether or not capacity is constrained there...
lol, I can't even who thought this is a good idea. I can view 3 message summaries on the screen at once*, it seems to be formatted for touch usability on a 5" screen (not useful for a 16" laptop display) and there are no meaningful ways to customize the message views or opt out of the preview...
From zdnet and the conference call (live webcast ended a few minutes ago and download should be available soon):
So Intel confirms there's going to be a slight delay for 10nm, but it's still coming in 2017 (~2.5 years between 14nm and 10nm).
$278.99 - $56.99 promo code = $222
Not too bad for the price. If you want something even cheaper, these Braswell (Atom) NUCs are starting to become available now for around $130-$140: http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/nuc/nuc-kit-nuc5cpyh.html
until the next build (final release version?) is out.
MS will be pulling the build 10162 ISOs and suspending build update availability very soon.

The Xeon D is a Broadwell based chip made to fit between the E3 and E5 models, and for use in high density servers. It also gets most of the RAS features missing...
I saw this on another board. The chart on the right shows per generation and cumulative IPC improvements from Dothan to Broadwell:
Note that IPC improvements have been fairly linear, contradicting the claims that Intel is artificially holding back performance on new uarchs. I do agree that...

Nothing huge about it for most people. However, I noticed this in the notes:

Gee, thanks Nvidia. Go ahead and only support my laptop GPU for 8 scant years. :angryface: :hulkrage: ;)
I guess the lawsuit never went away.
Not surprising as supplies of Llano chips in the retail bound channel and to system makers were in short supply for months. Lying about it probably wasn't a good idea.
If this is the main reason they're suing, I don't think Llano was the primary problem even...

lol, this is not comparable with the i3, i5 and i7 naming conventions so why is Intel confusing Atom performance with this?
Ars previews Intel's presentation about 10nm and beyond at ISSCC 2015: http://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2015/02/intel-forges-ahead-to-10nm-will-move-away-from-silicon-at-7nm/
Going with a III-V material as speculated in the article at 7nm is a strong bet. I think the end of silicon proclamation...
It has a Core i5-5250U (1.6/2.7GHz) with HD 6000 graphics and support for M.2 storage. The Ars review has mostly worthless benchmarks, but the Hot Hardware one...
It's about the size of a button, an 18mm diameter round package, made for wearable computers. Specs are very low end of course, since it's basically a Quark SE based data collection device.
Edit: still available 1/1 and I think it ends 1/2

Not exactly news since that CPU shipped 2 months ago, but there are other more recent items listed.
What does seem to be news is that Skylake silicon is also only a Y model, with the higher power models on 14nm still MIA.
