Intel reveals its graphics card with these first prototype renders

By | March 21st, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

While Intel spent the majority of its stage time at GDC 2019 announcing new software and 9th Generation mobile processors, the company also gave us a small tease of what its graphics card could look like.

At the very start of its GDC 2019 keynote, Intel designer and artist Christiano Siquera shared the very first shroud design for an Intel Graphics Card. This design you see below was apparently published back in December 2018 and while it looks like any old, generic mini GPU, Team Blue has since moved onto a new design.… Read the full article

Intel’s new graphics tuning software is ready for its eventual graphics cards

By | March 21st, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

Intel didn’t announce any graphics cards at GDC 2019, but the company has announced yet another platform in preparation for them as well as its incoming family of 9th Generation mobile processors.

Meet the Intel Graphics Command Center (IGCC), Team Blue's equivalent of Nvidia’s GeForce Experience and AMD’s Radeon Software. Like other graphics software focused suites, Command Center’s features include automatic game detection and one-click game optimization. To help users understand how specific settings are affecting in-game graphics, the software will show before-and-after images.… Read the full article

Nvidia GTX graphics cards will get ray tracing this April

By | March 18th, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

Up until now, Nvidia has been treating ray tracing as an exclusive feature available only to its Turing RTX graphics cards, but now the company is suddenly enabling it on graphics cards as low-end as a GeForce GTX 1060.

On the first day of GDC 2019, Nvidia announced that it will introduce a driver in April that will enable both Pascal and Turing GTX graphics cards to render ray tracing effects using DirectX Raytracing (DXR). The list of supported graphics cards includes both the recently introduced GeForce GTX 1660 Ti and GTX 1660 as well as everything in between a GTX 1060 (6GB) and Titan X.… Read the full article

Nvidia may be about to tease a next-gen graphics card

By | March 15th, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

Nvidia has been rolling out graphics cards non-stop, with a six total Turing RTX and GTX models now, and the company may be about to tease next-generation GPU technology.

Nvidia will reportedly debut its 7nm Ampere GPU architecture during the keynote at its GPU Technology Conference on March 18, according to the latest report from TweakTown.

Before you get excited (or angry) about Team Green introducing even more gaming parts, the new GPU architecture will supposedly succeed Volta as Nvidia’s engine for high-performance computing, digital learning and artificial intelligence.… Read the full article

Intel Ice Lake release date, news and features

By | March 11th, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

The computing world has eagerly waited for Intel to boldly show us something we haven’t seen before – and that might be Intel Ice Lake, the company’s first 10nm CPU family, which may make it out ahead of Cannon Lake.

Intel Ice Lake processors will be the first commercially available processors that will move from the aging 14nm process, which has been ‘enhanced’ repeatedly since the introduction of Broadwell almost five years ago. With AMD going full steam ahead with its 7nm Zen2 processors, including AMD Ryzen 3rd Generation and presumably Threadripper 3rd Generation, it’s about time for Team Blue’s chips to move into the modern age – even if it is only on the mobile side of things.… Read the full article

Intel Lakefield release date, news and rumors

By | March 11th, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

Intel must be feeling the heat from Qualcomm Snapdragon-powered laptops, because the company is now developing its first hybrid processor or system-on-a-chip (SOC).

Then there’s Intel Lakefield, a processor unlike anything we’ve ever seen. It’s packed with more than one type of CPU core to create a more stable and better rounded system. Plus, these hybrid SOCs can even come with their own integrated memory, I/O interface, wireless connectivity, and, of course, integrated CPUs.

Because it has so many different components built into the chip, Lakefield operates more like the ARM processors found in the best smartphones, than the traditional CPUs that have been powering laptops and desktop computers practically since they were invented.Lakefield could just change the computer game for the first time in years.… Read the full article

AMD Ryzen 3rd Generation specs and prices spill out after a retail leak

By | March 4th, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

We got a hearty helping of information about AMD Ryzen 3rd Generation processors at the start of the year, but all has been quiet for a while. Thankfully, this long silence has been broken by a massive retail leak that may have spelled out the entire Ryzen 3000 lineup.

It appears Ryzen 3rd Generation will include many new additions and an overall increase in core counts – if Bigzam’s recently published product catalog is to be believed.

At the head of the family is a new Ryzen 9 3850X processor equipped with 16 cores and 32 threads, with clock speeds ranging between 4.3GHz and 5.1GHz.… Read the full article

Nvidia GTX 1650 may have just showed up in a laptop

By | March 1st, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

Nvidia Turing GTX series graphics cards have been popping out of the woodwork, and now we’re hearing that each of these new GPUs will also have laptop equivalent versions.

The Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 has apparently appeared in a 3DMark entry – for a gaming laptop of all things. Thanks to a screenshot taken by TUM APISAK, we can surmise that the mobile version of the GTX 1650 will feature a base clock of 1,395MHz, with 4GB of GDDR5 video memory operating at 8Gbps speeds on a 128-bit memory bus.… Read the full article

Thunderclap hack makes Macs and PCs with Thunderbolt ports vulnerable

By | February 28th, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

If you’ve bought a recently released MacBook, Windows laptop or really any PC equipped with a Thunderbolt port, there’s a new vulnerability you should watch out for.

The new vulnerability has been dubbed Thunderclap and it could leave computers open to serious attacks such as running malicious code on your system. This is on top of the usual, unwarranted access to important data like passwords, encryption keys and any other sensitive data stored on your system.

It’s really bad news mainly because Thunderbolt’s protocols are designed with OS-level access and direct-memory access (DMA) to support high-speed data transfer, video out and its other myriad features.… Read the full article

Intel Lakefield video guides us inside its first hybrid processor

By | February 27th, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

Intel has released a new video to give us a detailed look and breakdown of its upcoming Lakefield hybrid processor.

Lakefield should sound familiar if you caught wind of it during CES 2019, when it was first unveiled as a hybrid processor designed to compete with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon computing APUs. In fact, this new video is actually more of an extended cut of the demo video that Lakefield debuted with at Intel’s keynote.

From the video, we can see the Lakefield processor makes use of the Foveros 3D design packaging to stack a massive array of memory on top of the chips’s main cores, which in themselves contain a mix of 'big' and 'small' CPUs.… Read the full article
