  • Avoid this scam and all like it.

  • As we learned from our friends over at Engadget, Lenovo is making a bold move with its ThinkPad Yoga lineup for 2016. The 12.5" ThinkPad Yoga 260 and its larger 14" sibling the 460 are going to be available in silver, next to the iconic black.

    Both laptops feature the now signature lift and lock mechanism, which prevents the keys from moving when you fold the laptop over into the tablet, or tent mode. They also come with a pen and, hear this Microsoft, pen slots. So you can't lose them easily.

    In terms of the internals, its all seen before, except for the new Skylake processors. Up to 16GB of RAM on the smaller model, up to 8GB on the larger. The larger one offering discrete graphics in compensation. Up to full HD on the 12 incher, more than enough say we, up to 2,560x1,440 on the larger model, SSDs, HDDs. ThinkPads are usually among the more configurable laptops around.

    That's 293 new articles on Skylake today. Intel is ruling the press cycles with IFA and Skylake. IFA takes place from 4-9 September 2015 in Messe Berlin, but the press conferences start on 2 September.

  • Intel has admitted that they were late to the mobile game. Very, very late. But in recent years, they have begun to make up for that. ASUS is one of the main manufacturers that have put their processors into their smartphones. Namely the Zenfone 2. If you’ve used the Zenfone 2 then you’ll know that thing is no slouch at all, and the Intel chip inside is pretty powerful. The same goes for Dell’s Venue 8 7000 and 10 7000 tablets. With a few others also looking to Intel, it’s time they got serious. Today, at Intel’s IFA press conference, the company announced that they are testing Core M processors in smartphones.

    While Intel did say they were testing Core M processors in smartphones, they gave little information about these chips. Now their Core M chips are in devices like the new Macbook from Apple, which has a clockspeed of around 1.3GHz, pretty powerful right? Intel’s Core M chips are typically found in “cheaper” laptops and hybrids or 2-in-1’s. What’s important to note here is that Intel is optimizing their silicon for Windows 10, so this could be for Windows 10 smartphones and tablets, and not necessarily be for Android smartphones and tablets, at least not yet.

  • There’s been a lot of excitement around the release of Intel’s new sixth generation Core processor on Wednesday, but one particular industry may not be too happy about it: the tablet market. In other words, the PCs with Intel’s new Skylake chips could possibly look as sleek as some of the tablets, while providing the same type of computing power you’d expect from any personal computer. “It’s taking the good parts of a phone and tablet, and then adding it to the benefits of a PC,” Patrick Moorhead, principal analyst at Moor Insights & Strategy, told Business Insider. “If Intel, Microsoft, and its big partners, like HP, Lenovo, and Dell, can get aligned, they will revive the PC market — and I do think it will come at the expense of larger tablets.”

  • Intel's latest generation processors -- codenamed Skylake -- will deliver incredible performance gains, better battery life, superlative graphics and the scope for PC makers to start getting creative in terms of new shapes and form factors when they start appearing in devices later this year.

    Computer sales may be slowing down overall, but there is clearly demand for mobile PCs, especially ultrabooks, hybrids and 2-in-1 devices -- computers that are proving popular enough to start stealing sales from tablets.

    But whatever PC you next decide to next purchase, chances are that whatever its brand, from Acer to Apple, it will have an Intel chip inside running the show, meaning that every time it upgrades its chips, everyone benefits.

    And with its new sixth-generation ‘Skylake' processors, revealed on Wednesday ahead of the official start of this year's IFA in Berlin, Germany, the benefits are potentially huge.

  • Wells Fargo’s David Wong writes that overall, high valuations combined with broad-based weakness across many electronics end markets have him cautious on the semiconductor space as a whole. Yet Intel stands out from the crowd given its “particularly low P/E of about 12x the consensus GAAP 2016 EPS estimate of $2.31,” which also implies low invest expectations.

    As such, Wong reiterated an Outperform rating on Intel, calling it his top pick given relatively easy comparisons from a weak first half of the year, and Microsoft’s (MSFT) new Windows 10 operating system. “We continue to think that a seasonal lift in PC builds and PC processor demand could help Intel achieve solid sequential growth in the September quarter.”

    He also likes the new Skylake chips:

    Skylake offerings for notebooks include five low power Core Y processors with a 4.5W power specification for high end tablet and ultra-portable applications, ten 15W processors for mainstream notebook applications, four 28W and nine 45W processors for high performance notebooks and mobile workstations.

    Intel launched 20 Skylake processors for desktops in the high end Core brand the mid/lower-range Pentium brand. This compares with 6 higher Core desktop processors and no Pentium desktop processors in the prior generation Broadwell family. Hence we see the launch of Skylake as being a fairly significant refresh of Intel’s desktop offerings.

    Intel noted that PC makers will be introducing some new systems using the new processors now with many more coming out in the next few months. Lenovo, Toshiba and Acer have announced Skylake-based systems, with availability expected in October or later.

    A disc of chips flown in from the future

    There are many superlatives you'll hear this week about Intel's new sixth-generation Core (codename Skylake) processors. They are fast and efficient, they can do a whole heap of other things beyond pure computation, and they're enabling a new generation of thinner and longer-lasting mobile PCs. The one thing you probably won't hear is how these new chips look — which is fair enough since you're supposed to use them, not look at them.

    Still, there's an undeniable techno beauty to these chips, which I thought I'd capture for posterity and for kicks out here at IFA in Berlin. Below you'll find a collection of photos of a real wafer of 14nm Skylake processors, exactly like the ones that will be going into millions of new devices over the coming weeks and months. Well, maybe not exactly. This wafer didn't adhere to Intel's perfectionist standards for cleanliness, but it sure was pretty!

    [Check out the photos. ]

  • Intel stock is increasing by 1.76% to $28.31 in early morning trading on Wednesday, after the company announced its newest processors on Tuesday.

    The 6th Generation Intel Core processors offer triple the battery life and 30 times better graphics performance than the average 5-year-old processor, the company said in a statement.

    Some of the new processors, which have been optimized to work on Windows 10, are also half as thin and lighter than older models and start-up faster.

    "New 6th Gen Intel Core-based systems are more responsive than ever with enhanced performance, battery life and security," Client Computing Group general manager Kirk Skaugen, said in a statement. "And they can enable amazing new PC experiences like logging into your computer with your face and having a personal assistant respond to your voice."

    The new models include the Intel Core i5 processor that is 60% better at mobile multitasking than older models and the Intel Xeon E3 processor family, which will now be capable of powering mobile workstations.

    Separately, TheStreet Ratings team rates INTEL CORP as a Buy with a ratings score of B+. TheStreet Ratings Team has this to say about their recommendation:

    "We rate INTEL CORP (INTC) a BUY. This is driven by multiple strengths, which we believe should have a greater impact than any weaknesses, and should give investors a better performance opportunity than most stocks we cover.

    From TheStreet

  • "I have been an iPhone user since the 3G. But I also love the surface pro line for its capabilities in the tablet form factor. If Microsoft were to get anywhere near that kind of productivity power into a phone, I would almost certainly go that way and drop my 6 plus, pretty much exclusively going Win 10."

  • Intel’s new Skylake processors fit inside practically any computer. Soon, you’ll be able to get one inside a PC-on-a-stick. But it turns out that Core M computers can get even smaller still. Intel says it’s already testing the new processors inside smartphones too.

    As noted by Engadget, Intel’s Kirk Skaugen let slip that the company is working on putting Core M chips inside “phablets” when he gave his keynote at IFA 2015 in Berlin earlier today. And while you may not personally want a phablet in your pocket, it could be very good news for people looking to have a single computer they carry around everywhere.

    You see, Windows 10 has a pretty amazing new feature called Continuum for Phones, which will let future smartphones running Windows 10 transform into a Windows 10 desktop experience too. You just plug your phone into a keyboard, mouse, and monitor—or connect wirelessly with something like WiGig—and the apps and interface stretch themselves to fit.

    And yet Intel’s Core M laptop and tablet chips might make much more sense for Windows 10 devices than Qualcomm products, if Intel can shrink them down. Right now, Intel says a Core M chip can deliver twice the performance of an iPad Air 2 with comparable battery life, and it has the right architecture to run legacy Windows apps too. And unlike previous Intel processors, it’s expressly designed to speed up to fantastic levels of performance when you need it, and tiny levels when you don’t—just what you need from a phone.

    Imagine a future where you have a single device in your pocket that’s the key to all your data, and acts as your interface on the go—then you can just set it on a desk and interact with that content on far larger screens, with full size peripherals, and even add additional processing horsepower. That day isn’t here yet, but it feels like maybe the pieces are falling into place. Intel’s Core M might be one of them.

    This guy is one sick, creepy puppy. Get some mental health care, dude. Seriously. I'm not your long, lost lover. I'm not your friend and not your buddy. I don't want anything to do with you. So, cut it out before you get yourself arrested.

    "Is 800 a lot, or a little? A meaningless number without context. Except to you."

    [But it's enough for you to post a meaningless stalker message, isn't it?

    The new chip going into 800 systems is meaningless? No, it's incredibly huge and no one who knows anything about processor technology would think otherwise.]

  • MKM Partners maintained its bullish stance on Intel Corporation, citing upside from the upcoming 3D Crosspoint technology.

    MKM Partners has reiterated a Buy rating on Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC) stock along with the 12-month target price of $40, after the chipmaker hosted a Kansas City and Texas non-deal road-show with Bhargavi Wadhwa, Investor relation officer at Intel Corporation. The entire event was focused on manufacturing, data center, PC client and other recent developments including the closing of Altera deal and 3D crosspoint technology.

    MKM Partners highlighted the upcoming 3D Crosspoint technology and ongoing strength in consumer cloud as positive catalyst for the stock.

    Eight hundred.

    "More than 800 systems will be launching around the world starting Wednesday, said Kirk Skaugen, senior vice president and general manager of Intel's client computing group."

  • About what happened to Skylake. It's here and it's big. Intel is going to rule the tech press cycles for a while. The Etch-A-Sketch crowd on Wall Street will continue to snooze and talk about whatever their latest arm-flapping scheme is going to be.

  • wallisweaver wallisweaver Sep 2, 2015 10:57 AM Flag

    As they say it's a "big announcement". Well, to everyone who knows anything about technology. Which obviously excludes Wall Street.
