Intel Claims Record Q2 Results

E-mail Print PDF

Intel reports better than expected (at least by the analysts) revenues and income for Q2 2017, with revenues growing by 9% Y-o-Y to $14.8 billion while net income is up by 23% Y-o-Y to $3.5bn.

Intel chip“Q2 was an outstanding quarter with revenue and profits growing double digits over last year,” CEO Brian Krzanich says. “We also launched new Intel Core, Xeon and memory products that reset the bar for performance leadership, and we’re gaining customer momentum in areas like AI and autonomous driving. With industry-leading products and strong H1 2017 results, we’re on a clear path to another record year."

However, despite such results the Financial Times says Intel is now the second-biggest chipmaker by revenues, as it has lost the crown to no other than the S. Korean giant, Samsung.

AMD presents its rival to high-end Nvidia graphics cards such as the GTX 1080 and 1070-- Radeon RX Vega, featuring Vega GPU architecture able to handle the !evolving complexity and visual demands of today's games."

Radeon RXlRadeon RX Vega cards come in two flavours, RX Vega 64 and RX Vega 56. The RX Vega 64 is the higher-end option, with 64 compute units, 1247MHz base clock, 1547MHz boost clock and 8GB HBM2 memory. The result, AMD says, is a card able to power a 5K display via single cable.

Such a powerful card requires plenty of power, and as such it needs 295W (more than the 180W TDP of the GTX 1080). However it does reach performance reaching 12.7 TFLOPs, and supports the growing ecosystem of AMD FreeSync-compatible curved monitors.

Gaming peripheral maker SteelSeries presents a pair of mice featuring its latest sensor-- Sensei 310 and Rival 310, both promising true "1-to-1" tracking, or mouse movements matching exactly with on-screen movement.

SteelSeries miceThe sensor in question is dubbed the TrueMove 3, and was co-developed with PixArt, the team behind the Wii Remote. SteelSeries says it is the culmination of 15 years of work on the perfect gaming mouse. The TrueMove 3 promises true 1-to-1 tracking from 100 to 3500 CPU, while at 3500 to 12000 CPI it uses advanced jitter reduction technology.

Further reducing response time and increasing accuracy is the SROM. The IPS is consistent from 100-12000 CPI, and SteelSeries promises ultra-low latency at all CPI settings.
