intel core i7-7700k: de-lidded and overclocked


we're testing kaby lake's maximum frequency at various core voltages, the influence of de-lidding, and even applying a bit of liquid nitrogen. get ready to learn more about overclocking intel's latest architecture with a bunch of core i7-7700k cpus.intel's sandy bridge-based core i7 processors spoiled enthusiasts with the ease at which they could hit 5 ghz using air cooling. sadly, these cpus weren't well-suited for extreme overclocking, and we were never able to push past 6 ghz under liquid nitrogen. ivy bridge saw intel selling core i7s that were less amenable to traditional overclocking efforts, but much more receptive to extreme measures. record-setting efforts saw them break the 7 ghz threshold. the sixth generation of core i7 (skylake) demonstrated the best efficiency in a cpu yet.in

intel kills idf, will shift to more focused events


intel has quiety killed off the intel developers forum (idf), the annual dev conference it’s been running for almost 20 years. this is not in and of itself all that significant, but it does signal a shift in how intel thinks of itself, the developers who rely on intel products, and those of us in the media who cover it all.in a post, intel stated the following:intel has evolved its event portfolio and decided to retire the idf program moving forward. thank you for nearly 20 great years with the intel developer forum! intel has a number of resources available on intel.com, including a resource and design center with documentation, software, and tools for designers, engineers, and developers. as always, our customers, partners, and developers should reach out to their intel representative wi






asus updates uefi bios for 200 boards with intel optane support


why it matters to you intel optane drives can now help asus 200 series motherboard owners bridge the gap between standard storage options and new, high-speed options.asus has released a uefi bios update for 35 of its motherboards which adds support for intel’s optane memory drives. all of the boards are based on the 200 series chipset, with everything from the high-end z270s, through h270 and b250 boards all now able to add an intel optane drive to their m.2 port.intel’s optane memory is based on high-speed memory technology but comes in a storage drive format. with only a few tens of gigabytes of space though, it isn’t designed to work like your average solid state drive (ssd) or hard drive, but as a caching drive for either of those storage form factors.by putting often-accessed files on

intel security is mcafee again


if you were on the internet in a certain era, you remember mcafee. it was the defensive line between you and the rest of the internet, reminding you with incessant popups that you were not hacked, not quite yet, but only if you renewed your subscription right away. then intel bought the firewall company in 2010 for an eye-popping $7.68 billion and billed it as intel security, and the name mcafee became more closely associated with the company’s founder, a man who retired to belize only to be accused of his neighbor’s murder. (johnny depp will reportedly play john mcafee in an upcoming film.)but things didn’t work out with intel (or belize, for that matter) and so the unit formerly known as intel security will be mcafee once again. today, intel is officially inking a deal that will spin mca

amd steps up to take on intel with the ryzen 7 cpu, how does it compare?


something else inside?if you use a computer, you’ve probably seen that little “intel inside” sticker on it somewhere, letting you know that your facebook posts and cat videos are happening due to intel’s dominance in the computer chip business. but there’s another computer chip maker, advanced micro devices, or amd, that we don’t hear about very much, although that may be about to change.here at dt, matt smith has been putting amd’s new ryzen 7 1800x chip through its paces, and he’s here to report that the cpu has what it takes to compete against intel, and at a price that puts it in reach of most people who like to build their own computer systems. the ryzen 7 packs eight cores against the 10 in intel’s top core i7 model, and while it isn’t quite as fast as intel’s fastest chip, it’s stil

the empire strikes back: how intel is stepping up its ai game


when you ask intel how it is doing in the realm of artificial intelligence, you will likely hear a figure saying how 97 percent of all ai workloads run on xeon hardware. but that number is far from being the full story. in the realm of neural networks, the chip giant has a real competitor in the guise of nvidia, after intel has, by its own admission, been "absent" in the area. "it's really not too late ... we're in the first half of the first innings," barry davis, intel general manager of accelerated workloads group, told zdnet last week. intel is changing the way it approaches ai, after its old playbook didn't have the best results. "[in the past] we would have said: 'if you build it, they will come. here's our silicon, here's our software, and the bios and low-level code, have at it.' i

intel’s diversity efforts are somewhat paying off


it became clear in last year’s mid-year that intel had a leaky bucket, meaning that even though it had increased the number of underrepresented minorities it was bringing in, its overall minority representation was on the decline. based on intel’s latest diversity report, it seems that the company is moving in the right direction when it comes to retention of diverse employees.overall, intel hit its goal retaining diverse employees with a 15% exit rate for women and people of color compared to a 15.5% exit rate for employees in majority groups (white people, asian people and men).last year, 14.2% of intel’s new hires were from an underrepresented minority group, which led to an increase of people of color representation from 12.3% during the middle of 2016 to 12.5% by the end of the year.
