Israel's CompuLab packed a lot of computer power into a compact frame when it released the first Airtop fanless computer back in 2016. Now the company has unveiled the second generation, the Airtop2, that can be had with Intel's latest Xeon processor, powerful discrete graphics and up to 64 GB of ...
Sometimes the best products aren't the most cutting-edge parts, or even the fastest parts. The best computer processor for example is the one that fits your needs, at a price you can afford. AMD has frequently been the darling of budget PC builders, and while it often requires sacrificing some performance, ...

In the past year, graphics cards have gone from the reasonably priced computer part you pick up on Amazon or Newegg to something bordering on as precious as gold. If you happen to find one being sold at its MSRP, you can easily snatch it up and sell it on Amazon for twice the price. The market has ...
By today's standards, an 8-bit CPU isn't all that impressive considering all of our devices use 64-bit architectures. What is impressive, however, is when someone builds their own 8-bit computer using a plethora of wires and what is known in the do-it-yourself hardware programming community as a ...
Is your computer's CPU too hot? If your PC starts spontaneously shutting down, locking up, or acting sluggish during intense tasks, overheating could be the issue. Keeping tabs on your CPU temperatures is crucial when you're overclocking your PC's processor, too—you don't want to accidentally push the ...
According to Columbia County Sheriff's Office, the two men entered the store on Friday, Feb. 2 around 5 a.m. and stole two HP Pavilion computers, an Intel Core processor, and a Vizio Smart TV. After taking the items, they reportedly ran and exited through the back of the store, loading the stolen electronics ...

You'll also want to think about how powerful you need the computer to be. Most of the computers on this list feature Intel Core i chips, which come in a range of models. At the most basic level, the entry-level chip is the i3, the mid-range the i5, and the high-powered option is the i7. Apart from the processor, there's RAM, ...
The Spectre and Meltdown CPU exploits, which allow data to leak from highly secure parts of a computer to really wherever, are bad because they have to do with something pretty fundamental in how modern computer processors work.

Pine64 has released a budget-friendly single-board computer with the high-powered Rockchip RK3399 system on chip (SoC). Available from around $60, the RockPro64 board comes in two flavors, either with the hexa-core RK3399 SoC or the RK3399Pro, Rockchip's first "artificial-intelligence processor".
Most computers come with a single processor (also called CPU) made by either Intel or AMD. The processor is the brain that controls all of the other parts of the computer and handles all of its instructions. The more powerful the processor, the more computing power you have. In a nutshell: You want a really ...
While most 8700K chips can be user-adjusted to run all six cores at 5GHz or higher (Silicon Lottery, which sells 8700K chips that are pre-certified to run at better-than factory specifications says that 72% of 8700K chips can run reliably at 5GHz or higher), many computer builders don't like to mess with the ...
Indeed, AMD's consistent aggressive pricing, performance improvements and renewed focus on computer processors and graphics chips explain why the company's stock has climbed nearly 14% over the past 12 months and a staggering 415% since Su took the reins in June 2015. AMD also managed a ...

... and the good news is that the only thing that you, a typical smartphone and computer user, need to do is make sure the software running on your devices is up-to-date. These vulnerabilities concern security experts because they have their roots in the very design of the processor that powers your gadget.
Intel's Navin Shenoy released the results of several benchmarks done internally, and the performance hit from the deeply rooted processor problem disclosed by ... So if you notice your computer going slower in the next couple weeks, it's not just you, and it isn't a conspiracy by Apple — unfortunately, it's a ...

For Schrodinger's feline friend - the simultaneous states were dead and alive. Superposition is what makes quantum computing so potentially powerful. Standard computer processors rely on packets or bits of information, each one representing a single yes or no answer. Quantum processors are different. They don't work in ...
The news sounds bad at first blush: Researchers from Nvidia and Princeton University have discovered fresh ways to exploit the Meltdown and Spectre CPU vulnerabilities present in every modern computer processor. But while the new MeltdownPrime and SpectrePrime attacks prove that the initial ...
The recent news of major vulnerabilities in computer processors -- dubbed Meltdown and Spectre -- that allow hackers to directly access data regardless of operating system protections was no surprise to researchers at Galois, a computer science research company based in Portland, Ore. Computer ...
In other cases, you'll have to go to the support website for the specific manufacturer of your computer keeping in mind that this flaw is not limited to only Intel's processors. Older systems may never get a patch while many with obscure systems could be waiting for months or even a year before they'll see an ...
In recent years, chip giant Intel (NASDAQ:INTC) has taken significant steps to diversify away from the personal computer processor market. This isn't because such processors aren't highly lucrative for the company -- they are. But the reality is that demand for personal computers, and therefore the ...
I think it's far more likely that Intel will be able to, through aggressive product segmentation and through the introduction of targeted products for high-value areas (e.g., processors aimed specifically at the gaming market), drive up its processor average selling prices rather than necessarily drive unit volumes ...
The problem for the computer's owner is that this takes up processor power, making other operations take much longer. Pirate Bay users have complained that their processors have been using up to 85% of their capacity compared with less than 10% for normal operations. This can be accompanied by a ...
