In the news, Intel has given their specification for its high-speed Thunderbolt technology to the USB-IF implementers forum. This is the group which creates and manages USB technology. The USB4 specification will follow the current USB 3.2 specification, yet an exact date of release has not been defined. USB4 will double the bandwidth of USB […]

Intel has reported a problem between the Haswell processor, the next-generation microprocessor that uses 8-series cor-logic sets. Intel says when a PC system with Core i-series Haswell inside wakes from S3 sleep mode, it experiences issues with devices connected through USB 3.0. Intel defines the issue only as a nuisance for end users, but who […]
Seems a bit odd that Intel releases their X79 spec to replace the X58 and include 14 USB ports for 2.0 standard, but nothing for 3.0.
To be clear, we are not suggesting Intel has new information on the USB 3.0 SuperSpeed interface, but rather new information on how USB 3.0 technology will play with Intel’s new Panther Point Platform. What this means is that Intel will start native integration with their new chipset in the coming year.Â An interesting point […]
If rumors are to be true, Intel will be adding a USB 3.0 chipset to their winter 2010 lineup.Â The Intel Developer Forum is expected to showcase an Intel Cougar Point chipset for desktops. For a bit, it was said Intel will forgo the the USB 3.0 chipset in favor of LightPeak technology, but maybe […]
Today, a team of engineers will be recognized at the Computer History Museum for designing the first microprocessor in 1971, a 4-bit parallel CPU with 2,300 transistors. That project, from an infant Intel [3 years old], was a huge achievement and one can honestly say “it changed the world.” The Intel 4004 was the first […]
Intel is making an interesting marketing move these days with positioning the “Father of USB” as one of Intel’s best performing “Rock Stars.” You have may have seen the Intel commercial I posted several weeks ago.Â You may have seen that same commercial on TV [as I did] and now we have Ajay Bhatt, the […]
Intel released a draft specification for USB 3.0 or SuperSpeed USB. The Extensible Host Controller Interface or xHCI provides a standard method for USB 3.0 host controllers to communicate with the USB 34.0 software stacks. Both AMD and Nvidia voiced complaints earlier in the year that Intel hasn’t released update information to make the new […]
Xscale is getting the axe including other divisions such as its network processors business IXP. Intel spent more than $10 billion to enter the communications business over the years, but the microprocessor giant lost its shirt â€” if not millions of dollars in the arena. The reported communications-chip sale is said to be part of […]
Keyspan announced support for Intel-based Macs with its line of USB serial adapters and remote controls. The software is available for download from Keyspanâ€™s Web site. The updates include new versions of the software for Keyspanâ€™s serial adapters, USB Server, infrared remote controls, and the Easy Presenter and USB PS/2 Adapter.
In 2015 Intel introduced the Compute Stick or Computer Stick – the product has been around ever since. The idea is simple and eligant. Intel wanted to create an HDMI dongle computer which can run Windows 10. There is no confirmation, but our suspicion is that Intel wanted a ultra-cheap and portable solution to run […]
USB 3.2, the most recent, shipping, standard sees a maximum transfer speed of 40Gb per second. USB4 will double that. Said another way, 80Gbps is equal to moving 10,000MB in one second. Said another way, that’s about 10GBs in one second. Keep in mind, this is all theoretical, maxium speed. Real world applications will not […]
