  1. A jury says Intel owes $2.18 billion for infringing a zombie chip company’s patents VLSI Technology rose from the dead to sue Intel may owe quite a bit of cash to a semiconductor company that hasn’t existed for 20 years. A Texas jury has asked Intel to pay $2.18 billion for infringing two patents owned by VLSI Technology, according to Bloomberg. VLSI seemingly rose from the dead in 2019 specifically to sue. The last time it was an independent company was in 1999, when Philips purchased the semiconductor design fi
  2. Intel Paid Out $800,000 Per Year Through Bug Bounty Program Over 230 Vulnerabilities Patched in Intel Products in 2020 Intel patched 231 vulnerabilities in its products last year, roughly the same as in the previous year, when it fixed 236 flaws. The chipmaker on Wednesday published its 2020 Product Security Report, which reveals that nearly half of the vulnerabilities patched last year were discovered by its own employees, and the company claims that a vast majority of the addressed issues are the direct result of its investment in product security assurance.
  3. Intel confirms that its desktop Rocket Lake processors will ship this month If you're in the market for a new Intel CPU but you're holding out for 11th-generation, it's no secret that you won't have to wait long. The company has already said that Rocket Lake-S is coming in the first half of this year. But the family of desktop CPUs is coming earlier than that, apparently. A retailer already accidentally started listing the products, which led to Intel begrudgingly giving up the release date. The Rocket Lake-S family of CPUs is going to be release
  4. Intel to bundle Hitman 3 with its Rocket Lake CPUs A decent game bundle and strong availability could be the key to a successful launch for Intel Rocket Lake. (Image credit: Intel, IO Interactive) Intel appears to be looking at unleashing a Hitman 3 games bundle. At least that's the case according to @momomo_us on Twitter. The tweet covers the terms and conditions document that goes alongside the promotion and includes plenty of existing chips as well as the 11th Gen CPUs that are set to be officially unveiled by the end of the month.
  5. Intel's unreleased i7-11700K is being sold and shipped in Germany WTF?! German retailer Mindfactory listed the unreleased and unannounced Intel Core i7-11700K for over a day, until they were sold out. Now, enthusiasts on German forums are posting photos and screenshots of the next-gen processors. Intel’s eleventh-generation desktop processors, codenamed Rocket Lake, were announced in general terms at CES 2021, but only the flagship i9-11900K was formally named. The Core i7-11700K is no stranger to us though: it was the victim of an illicit bench
  6. Intel touts faster PCIe 4.0 storage performance on its upcoming Rocket Lake-S against Ryzen Ryan Shrout, who is the Chief Performance Strategist at Intel, has posted on Twitter a performance comparison between Intel's upcoming Rocket Lake-S flagship desktop part, the Core i9-11900K, and AMD's 16-core Zen 3-based counterpart, the Ryzen 9 5950X. Intel says that its internal comparison test shows the Core i9-11900K platform is 11% faster than the 5950X in PCMark 10's Quick System Drive Benchmark. According to the UL Benchmarks website, "The Quick System Drive
  7. Supermicro opens remote testing for Intel Ice Lake servers With the forthcoming launch of Intel’s next-generation Xeon Scalable processors, server maker Supermicro has opened up remote testing for customers who want to try out servers running the long-hyped chips also known as Ice Lake. The company announced Thursday that its JumpStart program for workload testing on Ice Lake-based Supermicro X12 systems began earlier this week, giving customers remote access to servers with the third-generation Xeon Scalable processors so that they can begin developing, validating, tun
  8. Intel Alder Lake CPUs could be more powerful than we thought Little cores could be cause for celebration even on desktop PCs… (Image credit: Shutterstock) Intel’s 12th-gen Alder Lake processors could be more powerful than anticipated, at least if a new rumor is near the mark regarding the performance levels of the low-power (or ‘little’) cores on the chips. This interesting piece of speculation – and bear in mind, it is just a rumor floating down from a YouTube leaker, ‘Moore’s Law is Dea
  9. Pat Gelsinger thinks Intel can "be the leader in every category in which we compete" Back in January, Intel announced that CEO Bob Swan was stepping down and he would be replaced by Pat Gelsinger, and just yesterday, Gelsinger stepped into his new role. Naturally, it's not going to be a tremendously easy role, and the new CEO published a note to employees today. To be clear, there's nothing surprising or out of the ordinary here. It's completely normal for a new CEO to publish what its goals are, and this is no different. But he does have some stro
  10. Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge getting this Intel security feature Chromium-based browsers such as Microsoft Edge and Google Chrome will soon support the Intel CET security feature to prevent a wide range of vulnerabilities. Intel's Control-flow Enforcement Technology (CET) is a hardware security feature initially introduced in 2016 and added to Intel's 11th generation CPUs in 2020. The CET feature is designed to protect programs from Return Oriented Programming (ROP) and Jump Oriented Programming (JOP) attacks that modify an application's normal
  11. Someone stole and reviewed an Intel i7-11700K engineering sample, a.k.a. Rocket Lake Their conclusion: it's a great gaming processor, but maybe not the best Something to look forward to: The 11700K could perform similarly to current flagships, or it could perform better if Intel refines it ahead of release. We don't generally condone reviewing processors ahead of the embargo, as it isn't fair on other publications, but it's pretty funny when it's for revenge. Furthermore, what some of these numbers show, particularly the power draw and temperature tests is that hi
  12. Intel says it will bring Resizable BAR to 11th-gen Rocket Lake CPUs Hardware makers are getting close to releasing BIOS and driver updates In brief: Hardware manufacturers AMD, Intel, and Nvidia have been working on incorporating a new performance-boosting feature that has been part of the PCIe spec for years called Resizable BAR (resizable Base Address Register). It's been demonstrated that by allowing the dynamic expansion of the data channel between the CPU and the graphics memory, you can squeeze some additional performance from your setup. Resizab
  13. Intel fixes vulnerabilities in Windows, Linux graphics drivers Intel addressed 57 security vulnerabilities during this month's Patch Tuesday, including high severity ones impacting Intel Graphics Drivers. 40 of them were found internally by Intel, while the other 17 were externally reported, almost all through Intel's Bug Bounty program. The security bugs are detailed in the 19 security advisories published by Intel on its Product Security Center, with security and functional updates being delivered to users through the Intel Platform Update (IP
  14. Intel isn’t messing around if these Alder Lake-S benchmarks are real Intel's next-gen CPU matches speed with DDR5 and PCIe 5.0 (Image credit: Intel) A benchmark for an engineering sample of Intel's upcoming 10nm Alder Lake-S CPUs appears to show the new big.LITTLE CPU already outperforming an i9-9900K processor. Several benchmark results for Intel's next-generation CPU - expected to arrive in late 2021 - have already appeared online, including one showing it supporting DDR5 RAM. This one
  15. Intel accuses ex-employee of stealing trade secrets linked with Xeon cloud chips Intel and Microsoft are currently investigating the matter (Image credit: Intel) A former Intel employee has been accused of stealing confidential documents from the chip giant and using them to benefit his new employer Microsoft according to a recently filed lawsuit. After spending a decade at the chipmaker, Dr Varun Gupta left the company in January of last year to join Microsoft. However, Intel's lawsuit c
  16. Intel Rocket Lake CPUs will NOT supported on B460 or H410 chipsets Rocket lake Announcements have been rocky, so to say. There has been quite a lot of confusion about what motherboards in the 400 series will support the Socket LGA1200 processors. Perhaps you can remember several posts back in January, where for example, in an official MSI account, a customer service employee confirmed that Rocket Lake processors and motherboards would get released in late Marchand mentioned that current LGA1200 motherboards would receive support for the new CPUs, these would include H4
  17. Intel picks and chooses benchmarks as the threat from Apple Silicon grows The first M1 Macs have been out in the wild for nearly three full months, and the fear is setting in at Intel. The company this week shared a detailed slideshow of benchmark results with Tom’s Hardware (via Six Colors), aiming to show that there are multiple ways in which it still has a leg up on Apple Silicon…depending on how you look at things. One of Intel’s focuses is on what it refers to as “productivity.” The company compares its 11th generation “Tiger Lake” processors against A
  18. Intel grabs CPU market share back from AMD for first time in 3 years Mostly thanks to AMD's processor shortages What just happened? We’ve been hearing for a while now that AMD is continuing to chip away at Intel’s dominance of the CPU market, but according to a new report, the trend reversed in Q4 when Chipzilla gained market share for the first time in three years. Mercury Research’s results for the fourth quarter of 2020 show that AMD lost some of its x86 market share despite having a good year overall. In desktop, the company fell from 20.1 percent
  19. Bizarre 14-core, 20-thread Intel Alder Lake-P CPU shows up on Geekbench In a leak dating back to June of last year, we came to know of Intel's upcoming desktop socket LGA1700, which will go along with the next-gen Alder Lake-S CPUs. At the time, we noted the presence of an Alder Lake-P variant but the "-P" extension was, and still is, something new. Today, a mobile Intel CPU with the Alder Lake-P moniker has made an appearance on Geekbench and a Twitter user aptly named 'Benchleaks' has managed to find it. The unknown Alder Lake-P processor spotted on Geekb
  20. Intel’s new desktop GPUs won’t work in AMD systems Intel’s first desktop GPUs in 20 years need a special BIOS Intel launched its first Iris Xe desktop graphics cards yesterday, but you won’t see them appearing in AMD-powered systems. While Nvidia and AMD’s desktop GPUs typically work across a variety of Intel and AMD processors, Intel’s new desktop GPUs are a little more limited for now. “The Iris Xe discrete add-in card will be paired with 9th gen (Coffee Lake-S) and 10th gen (Comet Lake-S) Intel
  21. Intel's Iris Xe discrete desktop graphics card is finally here Today is a historic day for PC as Intel, after failing to do so in the past, has finally launched its first discrete GPU based on Iris Xe architecture. The company announced its plans for DG1 (short for Discrete Graphics 1) last year at CES 2020 where we were teased with an early variant of the GPU running Destiny 2. Since then, we have seen the performance of Intel's Xe-LP in Tiger Lake laptops. For example, the Dell XPS 13 9310 that we reviewed has the Intel Core i7-1165G7 with integrated 96 Iris Xe Execution U
  22. Latest Intel 12th-gen leak gives us a glimpse beyond the desktop Alder Lake SKUs make an appearance in benchmarking tool (Image credit: Future) Intel’s Alder Lake CPU series has once again been detailed, yet this time we've been given a glimpse at what we can expect beyond the desktop. This latest information comes via an update to SiSoftware Sandra, spotted by KitGuru, which confirms that the benchmarking tool will support three variants of the CPU architecture: Alder Lake-S for desktop
  23. Intel Alder Lake CPUs could arrive as soon as September Potentially only six months after Rocket Lake debuts, rumor contends (Image credit: Shutterstock.com / Alexander Tolstykh) Intel has again confirmed that its Alder Lake processors for desktop PCs and laptops are on track to arrive in the second half of 2021, with a rumor also surfacing which contends that September will be the launch month. As spotted by VideoCardz, this latter speculation comes from leaker Uniko’s Hardware on Twitte
  24.
