The future of mobility lies in low-power devices powered by microwatts, Intel researchers suggested. At that level, high-school experiments become viable.
Expert overclockers use liquid nitrogen to push gaming rigs to the limit, setting all-new benchmarking records.
By using Haswell instead of Intel's low-powered Bay Trail chips, the new Chromebooks may be targeting a use case that doesn't yet exist.
Although early sales of Windows 8 notebooks were constrained by the lack of touchscreens, senior executives at Intel said that those problems have vanished.
The head of Intel's perceptual computing group says that functions like speech, gestures, and recognition will take advantage of Intel's existing microprocessors, but require dedicated chips as well.
New Chromebooks announced this week signal Intel's willingness to broaden its horizons and work with companies like Google, at the expense of its long-standing Windows partnership with Microsoft.
Intel executives said Wednesday that the first Bay Trail tablets will use only the 32-bit version of Windows 8.1, despite 64-bit support on the chip.
Ending weeks of anticipation, Intel launched its next-generation Atom chip, Bay Trail, at the Intel Developer Forum on Wednesday.
It may be smaller than an Xbox controller, but Gigabyte's new BRIX PC can (kind of) play Crysis.
Promising faster performance, longer battery life, and cheaper prices, the new chips can run Android or Windows and will power $199 tablets.
