Apple released refreshed and new version of its MacBook lineup including the 2015 MacBook Pro edition but expectations about another Pro model around July remain high. Among the highly anticipated changes would be Intel's processor Skylake.
Previous reports noted the considerable improvement features of the Skylake thus the anticipation over its release. Many computer manufacturers including Apple will likely update to it making sure their devices function as fast as possible. The Skylake architecture based on the 14nm process should also offer better GPU performance. The promising features of the Skylake make it a "logical" choice for Apple.
Intel rolled out the Knights Landing, its next-generation Xeon Phi multi-processor chip with three times the performance of its predecessor at 3TFLOPS. The Xeon Phi Knights Landing uses a 2D on-chip mesh interconnect and touts Intel's new Omni-Path off-chip communications.
Until now the Xeon Phi has been mostly used in supercomputers running naturally parallel applications, but many new features in the Knights Landing version may appeal to users running engineering and enterprise workloads. For instance, it is now a stand-alone chip and does not have the need for complex software running on a regular Xeon to supervise it.
1.) Stock is stupidly oversold.
2.) Windows 10 to be released in July.
3.) Intel Compute Stick coming with Skylake-Y - a huge market for Intel. Initial launch in April.
4.) Push into mobile. "The company expects its mobile group to break even in 2016."
5.) Intel built-to-order Xeon D chips. Another big success.
6.) Micron and Intel Unveil New 3D NAND Flash Memory!!!
Another day of Lucy pulling disappointment out of the jaws of hope.
Lucy, if you don't want to be disappointed then plan on being wrong every day. That's enormously reliable.
Nvidia received a downgrade Monday from an analyst who is bullish about the chipmaker's technology but concerned about the expiration of a six-year licensing deal with Intel. Goldman Sachs analyst James Covello in a research report today downgraded Nvidia to sell from neutral "ahead of a licensing cliff and slowdown in core markets." He has a price target of 20 on the stock.
Nvidia stock was down about 3%, near 23, in midday trading in the stock market today. Nvidia stock has climbed 11% over the past 90 days.
Intel and Nvidia signed a six-year cross-licensing settlement in 2011 in which Intel agreed to pay Nvidia $1.5 billion in licensing fees.
Covello says if the licensing agreement isn't renewed, Nvidia will see "a step down in earnings per share (30% of earnings before interest and taxes), GPU (graphics processing unit) growth is likely to decelerate this year given near-term risks to personal computer original equipment manufacturer sales (20% of total) and gaming growth will likely normalize lower."He expects Intel's final cash payment to be made in January 2016.
From Investor's Business Daily
"unfortunately, most know that whenever Intc gets to $35 or higher, it is a HISTORICAL sell signal."
[What is that - a twenty year strategy? The pattern doesn't occur enough to even be remotely playable.]
You just can't fix stupid.
Twink and Getanid61, this post is for you.
Wisconsin ranks worst among the 50 states in terms of a shrinking middle class, with real median household incomes here falling 14.7 percent since 2000, according to a new report.
The Pew Charitable Trust report showed Wisconsin with the largest decline in the percentage of families considered "middle class," or those earning between 67 and 200 percent of their state’s median income.
In 2000, 54.6 percent of Wisconsin families fell into the middle class category but that has fallen to 48.9 percent in 2013, according to U.S. Census figures compiled by Pew.
All other states showed some decline but none as great as Wisconsin’s 5.7 percent figure.
[This is what happens when the governor equates workers with ISIS. Hard right conservatives don't need other countries to start a war. They have declared everyone in the US who isn't affluent to be the enemy.]
"I told getanid61 that already but he still does not believe ;-). Perfect storm brewing for Intel of Skylake being early, mobile chips becoming more profitable and Windows 10 sparking a new PC upgrade cycle."
[Well put. Getanid61 is like the canary in the ARM crash coalmine. ]
Another new fake ID for propaganda purposes. Hard to believe Covello is still paying the shills.

"Clearly Intc is grossly mismanaged and a lot of people ought to be fired starting with the Chairman, CEO, President, on down. Intc has spent over $100 billion on R&D in the past 10 years, yet they totally miss handhelds--and still have no strategy for mobile"
