    Anandtech: Intel Extends Optane Memory Support to Celeron & Pentium CPUs

    When Intel launched its Optane Memory caching SSDs two years ago, it limited their support to mainstream and higher-end platforms essentially considering them premium products. Whether or not hybrid storage subsystems were ever a prerogative of premium PCs is up to debate (they are in case of Apple's iMac AIOs), but Intel recently expanded support for its Optane Memory caching SSDs to Celeron and Pentium-based desktop systems.

    Anandtech: SilverStone Launches MS10: a 10 Gbps USB-C Adapter for SATA M.2 SSDs

    As SATA SSDs slowly give way to M.2 SSDs, so too have the SSDs' use cases. Besides internal storage, of course, SATA SSDs have also commonly been used as both temporary and permanent external storage thanks to cheap SATA-to-USB adapters. And now that M.2 drives are rising in popularity, similiar adapters are popping up for SATA drives in the new form factor. The latest of these being SilverStone's recently launched MS10, a SATA M.2 SSD adapter that supports 10 Gbps USB transfer rates.

    Anandtech: No Fooling: Microsoft Silently Updates Surface Book 2 13.5 With Quad-Core

    Microsoft is a bit of an enigma in the PC space. There is little doubt that they offer some stunning hardware, but after being the first PC maker to jump on Intel’s Skylake platform, and then being burned by the power management issues that chipset had, they’ve been more cautious with their offerings ever since. Thanks to their somewhat unusual launch windows, that can mean that they use older hardware for longer. Such was the case with the Surface Book 2 when it launched in 2015. The Core i7 model shipped with the 8th generation Intel Core, meaning Kaby Lake Refresh, which means quad-core over the dual-core in Kaby Lake. But the Core i5 model shipped with a dual-core Kaby Lake i5-7300U processor, meaning it had a sizeable performance delta to the top tier model – far greater than we typically see in a Core i5 to Core i7 comparison.

    Without any fanfare at all, Microsoft has started offering a quad-core Intel Core i5-8350U in the 13.5-inch Surface Book 2 option, taking the pricing bracket that the dual-core i5-7300U used to fill. For the moment, the dual-core is still available, and gets a discount of $200 to $1299. In addition, the dual-core model can also be had with a 128 GB SSD, cutting the price again to $1149. That’s a significant price drop compared to the original $1499 retail price.
    The Surface Book 2 is one of the best laptops on the market, offering a combination of utility and performance that is not really matched by any other device. The quad-core i5 update is a welcome addition, but of course the real question is why didn’t it just ship with it to start with.
    The updated Surface Book 2 is available on the Microsoft Store.

    Anandtech: AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su to Deliver Computex 2019 Lead Keynote

    With CES 2019 barely in the mirror behind us, the consumer electronics industry is already barreling towards its next major trade show, Computex 2019 in Taiwan. And, as it turns out, leading that charge will be none other than AMD’s CEO, Dr. Lisa Su.
    Announced by the show’s organizers this morning, Computex 2019 will be establishing a new “prime” keynote to kick off the show: the CEO Keynote. Delivering that keynote, the very first keynote of the show, will be Dr. Lisa Su, who will be giving a presentation to be called “The Next Generation of High-Performance Computing”.
    Computex of course is no stranger to corporate keynotes and press events. However until now, the show has never held an official lead keynote (ala-CES), and rather keynotes have largely been semi-official, frequently off-site affairs. So for the show to establish a lead keynote is a big deal, overshadowed only by the fact that the organizers specifically invited Dr. Su to deliver the very first keynote, making this an auspicious honor for AMD and its CEO.
    While the announcement itself doesn’t go into much concrete detail about the presentation, AMD’s 2019 roadmap is well-known at this point, with a slate of 7nm products scheduled to launch, including both AMD’s highly anticipated Zen 2 CPU architecture processors (EPYC, Ryzen 3, etc) and products based on their upcoming Navi GPU architecture. AMD has previously announced that the next generation of EPYC processors would be available in mid-2019, so Compute falls right in the middle of that timeframe.
    The CEO Keynote will kick off at 10am local time on May 27th, which is the show’s usual pre-show press conference day. AnandTech will of course be there in force, and we’re looking forward to seeing just what AMD has up its sleeve.

    Anandtech: Intel’s Enterprise Extravaganza 2019: Launching Cascade Lake, Optane DCPMM

    Today is the big day in 2019 for Intel’s Enterprise product announcements, combining some products that should be available from today and a few others set to be available in the next few months. Rather than go for a staggered approach, we have it all in one: processors, accelerators, networking, and edge compute. Here’s a quick run-down of what’s happening today, along with links to all of our deeper dive articles, our reviews, and announcement analysis.

    Anandtech: The Intel Second Generation Xeon Scalable: Cascade Lake, Now with Up To 56

    The cadence of Intel’s enterprise processor portfolio is designed to support customers that use the hardware with a guarantee of socket and platform support for at least three years. As a result, we typically get two lots of processors per socket: Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge, Broadwell and Haswell, and now Cascade Lake joins Skylake. Intel’s new Second Generation Xeon Scalable (the official name) still comes in the new ‘Platinum / Gold / Silver / Bronze’ nomenclature, but this time offering up to 56 cores if you want the processor equivalent of Wolverine at your disposal. Not only is Intel offering more cores, but there’s Optane support, faster DRAM, new configurations, and better specialization that before. Intel also surprised us with better-than-expected hardware support for Spectre and Meltdown mitigations while still providing higher performance overall.

    Anandtech: Toshiba's PC Products Rebranded to Dynabook

    Starting early this year, Toshiba's former Client Solutions group, responsible for the company's laptops and other related consumer electronics, began a process of cutting ties with the company it originally drew its name from, and renaming the company to Dynabook. Now that process has reached its completion, as the remaining North American arm of the group has finally been renamed to Dynabook as well, firmly establishing Dynabook as a global brand.

    Anandtech: Intel's Bean Canyon (NUC8i7BEH) Coffee Lake NUC Review - Ticking the Right

    Intel's NUCs have managed to develop a strong market for ultra-compact form-factor (UCFF) machines since they were introduced in the early 2010s. Each CPU generation has seen Intel put out stronger versions of the NUC (both in terms of performance and features) in a regular cadence. In parallel, we have seen experiments with slightly larger form-factors (such as the Skull Canyon and Hades Canyon NUCs). Today, we are looking at Intel's flagship in their regular NUC category - the Core i7-based Bean Canyon (NUC8i7BEH).
