Samsung’s Chromebook Plus V2 adds an Intel processor and rear camera

  Samsung’s Chromebook Plus V2 adds an Intel processor and rear camera Samsung announced today that its Chromebook Plus V2 will be available later this month and it features some upgrades to the 2017 model. First, Samsung has swapped the ARM processor included in the original Chromebook Plus for a faster Intel Celeron 3965Y CPU, and it also added a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera, making the two-in-one device even more functional as a tablet. Additionally, the keyboard is designed to resist minor spills of up to two ounces.Like the previous model, the V2 comes with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. It also features a 12.

There's no telling which market Intel is targeting first , but either way, both NVIDIA and AMD should take notice. As Shrout points out, even a 2020 release seems surprisingly fast for Intel . While that partnership was surprising at first , it ' s most clearly a stopgap plan until Intel can deliver its own GPUs .

Raja working on Intel Arctic Sound discrete GPU for gaming, will be an MCM product. The industry had been abuzz with speculation ever since Intel first announced its plans to enter the discrete GPU market.

That confirmation came in a short tweet today: Intel plans to release its first discrete GPU -- one that isn't integrated into a CPU like its current graphics -- in 2020.

In a meeting with analysts last week, Intel executive Navin Shenoy noted that it's exploring both server and client (gaming and professional graphics) offerings, according to Ryan Shrout. There's no telling which market Intel is targeting first, but either way, both NVIDIA and AMD should take notice.

Samsung targets 100 percent renewable energy use by 2020

  Samsung targets 100 percent renewable energy use by 2020 Samsung has announced plans to power its US, Europe and China operations entirely by renewable energy sources within two years. It's an ambitious but achievable goal, no doubt spurred by the environmental credentials its rivals already boast in this area. Apple says it's now powered entirely by renewable energy, Google is offsetting all of its operational energy through wind and solar, and T-Mobile has already announced plans for 100 percent renewable energy by 2021. It makes financial sense, too, given reports that renewables will likely be cheaper than fossil fuels in just a couple of years' time.

The giant chip manufacturer Intel is betting heavily on dedicated GPUs , hence, it has just unveiled its first discrete GPU prototype. This chip is not going to be released in the short term to the market, but it does show that Intel is taking this new path very seriously.

Look out AMD and Nvidia, Intel could get into the graphics card game by 2020 . Its “Arctic Sound” and “Jupiter Sound” discrete GPUs were originally intended to spend their lives toiling away in data But according to Ashraf Eassa of The Motley Fool, Intel ’s graphics chief Raja Koduri has other plans .

As Shrout points out, even a 2020 release seems surprisingly fast for Intel. When it announced Koduri's hiring last November, along with the formation of a new Core and Visual Computing Group, Intel was basically starting from scratch. While the company's integrated graphics technology has steadily improved over the years, it still can't hold a candle to the performance of a dedicated GPU. That's one reason why Intel teamed up with AMD to integrate a Radeon GPU into a Core processor, which would allow for decent gaming performance in thin and light machines. While that partnership was surprising at first, it's most clearly a stopgap plan until Intel can deliver its own GPUs.
