If your enthusiast gaming customers are hungry for the ultimate performance, Intel’s new Core i9 X-series processors could be just what they’re looking for.
Intel has been in the process of rolling out its Core X-Series processors since the beginning of the summer. The most powerful of these — an 18-core behemoth called Core i9-7980XE (Extreme Edition) — should be available for purchase on Sept. 25 for just under $2,000.
What do they mean? In a world where a perfectly adequate desktop or laptop PC can be bought for less than $1,000, quite a lot.
The question is far from academic. Apple is expected to introduce its latest iPhone tomorrow. Industry watchers expect the retail price will be $1,000 — the highest ever for a smartphone.
Intel is getting serious about commercial drones. How about you?
Earlier this year, Intel demonstrated its Falcon 8+ drone and announced Mission Control software to facilitate drone flight planning, management and post-processing.
Yesterday, Intel CEO Brian Krzanich delivered the grand keynote at InterDrone, a conference and exhibit being held this week in Las Vegas. He declared that “data is the new oil.”
Seems the office and factory of the future will be a whole lot more talkative.
That’s because “listening” technology — now powering consumer services that include Amazon Alexa, Google Home and Windows Cortana — is quickly making its way into commercial applications.
To be sure, the traditional keyboard-and-mouse combo isn’t going away anytime soon. But in a growing number of instances, it will be giving way to mics and speakers.
Consider a new application being offered by U.S. Bancorp, a banking giant with assets of $464 billion.
“AI could be your next doctor,” reads the headline of an IDC press release issued earlier today.
Sound outlandish? With Intel’s new Myriad X processor, maybe not.
The Myriad X, which Intel announced last week, combines vision processing and neural computing to deliver artificial intelligence to the edge in a low-power, high-performance package.
When Intel introduced its 8th Gen Core processor family last week, one question was whether the new CPUs would help solution providers refresh customers’ older PCs.
If two new systems from Acer are any indication — both are built around the 8th Gen Intel “Coffee Lake” CPUs — then the answer is yes.
This year’s edition of IFA, the big consumer electronics show, is about to get rolling in Berlin. And PAX West, a popular gaming show, is about get started in Seattle — so popular, the organizers say it’s already sold out.
Dell and ASUS aren’t waiting for either show’s official opening on Sept. 1. They’re both already in Germany, announcing some cool gaming hardware even before the shows gets started.
The end of August is a sleepy, no-news time, right? Not any more.
HP Inc. and Dell just introduced some pretty cool systems for your customers. They include two thin clients and a rugged tablet. Here’s your solution provider’s update:
HP’s thin clients
Though thin-client technology has been around for years, now, with the growth of the cloud, they really make sense. Why provide full-fledged PCs to users who spend most of their time working with cloud-based apps and data?
Last week Intel officially launched its 8th Generation Core processor family, codenamed Coffee Lake, from Oregon, just hours before the solar eclipse. First to hit the market will be a quartet of mobile chips.
Looking for help refreshing your customers’ older systems? Intel says its new 8th Gen Core processors can provide a performance improvement of up to 40%, delivering a 2x performance boost over PCs built 5 years ago.
Intel is on a roll, expertly capitalizing on the success of its NUC (Next Unit of Computing) platform. Seven generations after the NUC’s initial introduction in 2012, the current Kaby Lake-U version is smaller, more powerful and more purpose-built than ever.
