  • Intel has explained how it struggled to bring 10-nanometer processors to market, while also admitting that we won’t see its 7nm chips until 2021. Meanwhile, its competitor AMD has recently released 7nm chips (such as the AMD Ryzen 9 3900X). However, with 10nm out this year and 7nm out by 2021, Intel is hoping it can catch up with Moore’s Law. So it looks like we’ll finally see 10nm chips from Intel this year, while 7nm will have to wait until 2021. That’s a long time considering both AMD and Qua

  • A new Nintendo Switch has been quietly announced, which is claimed to offer better battery life than the original version of the Switch, while sporting the exact same design. The improvement in battery life appears to be substantial, with Nintendo quoting a single charge as lasting between 4.5 and 9 hours. There’s no clear indication from Nintendo on its specification page as to how the new Switch model is able to deliver this improved battery life. In terms of cost, the Nintendo Switch price st

  • Aftermarket components maker ASRock has pointed out new AMD Navi-based graphics cards with dual-fan designs and out-of-the-box overclocking, HotHardware reports. AMD’s Radeon RX 5700 and 5700 XT graphics cards are an affordable pair of high-power hardware, but were limited to blower-style designs and factory clock speeds at launch (except the Anniversary Edition). We saw temperatures for the Radeon RX 5700 XT hit 81 degrees Celsius in our testing of the card. This is good news for AMD fans that

  • Leaks and patents have strongly hinted that Sony’s PS5 may be accompanied by an improved PSVR 2 headset, either at launch or later – and a new patent just made public suggest it could track eye movement and head motion. According to one Sony Interactive Entertainment patent (image above), it will enhance immersion by refining what each eye sees – aka ‘parallax images’ – for improved stereoscopic depth. But there are other possibilities for eye-tracking in VR, including alternative control method

  • The Chuwi MiniBook 2-in-1 laptop is an engineering feat but probably not what we’d call a productivity champion. Chuwi sent us the sample and you can only pre-order it from Indiegogo for $430 at the time of writing. The bottom of the Minibook contains a flap that hides an M.2 SSD, four rubber feet and an air grid. Chuwi’s diminutive laptop performed on par with other N4100 device like the Teclast X4 with Geekbench scores that are about half that of the Core i5-8250U (single and multi-core). At $

  • That means the iPhone 11 would have a 5.8-inch display and measure 143.6 x 70.9 x 7.7mm, although it’s expected to gain an extra rear camera, taking the count up to three. The iPhone 11 Max is set to be the largest of the trio, with a 6.5-inch screen and 157.5 x 77.4 x 7.7mm footprint, plus it’s also tipped to get a triple rear camera setup. Finally, the rumored iPhone 11R would sit in between its siblings in terms of size, with a 6.1-inch display and dimensions of 150.9 x 75.7 x 8.3mm. It too i

  • Microsoft’s latest change for Chromium-based Edge – and indeed all Chromium-powered browsers – involves deeper integration with Windows 10. It’s a fairly simple change by all accounts, and one that will improve not just the revamped Edge, but also Google’s Chrome (and other Chromium browsers) when running under Windows 10. Note that this has been implemented in the Canary (early testing) version of Chrome, but not yet in the Canary spin of Chromium-based Edge (although it should be coming soon).

  • The worrying truth is that Microsoft says it has notified almost 10,000 customers that they have either been targeted, or actually compromised, by a nation-state attack. So that represents over 1,500 people who have been hit (or could have been hit) with such cyber-attacks. The majority of these attacks originated in Iran, North Korea and Russia, Microsoft observes.

  • Sky Sports claims that revolutionary new technology used during its coverage of The Open golf this week will reveal to viewers the secret to a perfect pro golf swing.

Jason Wessely, Head of Golf at Sky Sports, said: “We’re always looking at how we can use innovative technology to bring golf fans clos

  • Perhaps the most useful piece of information about current Huawei phones is Google’s statement issued to TechRadar:”We are complying with the order and reviewing the implications. What about future Huawei phones? The same would also apply to Honor, the sub-brand of Huawei phones, in the future. Considering it was launched four months ago, that’s unusually bold for Android smartphone pricing.
