I bet that Intel tries to lock the devices to Intel-only Compute Cards, seriously lowering the (modest) appeal of the concept.

Re: Intel 8th-gen, it sure sounds like AMD has Intel running scared to maintain market share.

"Our next CPU generation will be a huge improvement over this one, according to our simulations - which we won't let you now the details of, nor know exactly when we'll actually start production - but, hey, trust us - and don't buy one of our competitors products in the meanwhile. Please?"

Hi I just read this
http://www.tomshardware.com/picturestory/764-best-of-computex-2017.html#s4
It says the 15 W coffeelake will be >30% faster with double the cores & an increase of 500 Mhz in turbo boost.
I confirmed it here
https://www.notebookcheck.net/Intel...15W-chips-to-be-up-to-30-faster.224716.0.html
And confirmed it here
https://www.macrumors.com/2017/05/30/intel-coffee-lake-30-pct-performance-boost/
And here
https://www.pcper.com/news/Processors/Computex-2017-Intel-8th-Gen-Core-Processors-30-Faster-7th-Gen
And here
https://arstechnica.com/gadgets/201...formance-boost-for-8th-generation-processors/.


let's compute
2×cores = 100% ideal performance increase.
500 Mhz = 14.28% performance increase.

Taking real world restrictions (but this was a benchmark) there should be a minimal 100% increase.
Q.e.d. 3 has 30% or less IPC/core vs kaby lake.

"it was surprising that Intel managed to pack in up to a Core i5-7Y57" Not really because 12 months ago Intel would have called that chip a Core M instead of misleadingly labelling it an "i5".... So it's basically a revision of the gutless core m chips...

I guess Political Correctness (and decency) has struck at Tom's. No more "booth babes" posts. I'm glad the posts are gone. Tom's is about the product, not the marketing.
