Updated: Leaves Tesla to kick-start Chipzilla
Jim Keller, the former AMD chip executive behind the Zen roadmap, has left Tesla for Intel and joining fellow AMD refugee Raja Koduri to help Chipzilla sort out of its manufacturing stall of the last few years.
Not worth doing
One of AMD's recently released Ryzen 2000 series CPUs, codename Pinnacle Ridge, has had its top taken off by Der8auer showing that these are still soldered to the IHS and that such a process is simply not worth doing due to small temperature differences.
Found it all by itself
Intel has fixed a hole in the configuration of several CPU series that allow an attacker to alter the behaviour of the chip's SPI Flash memory.
Including the Core i9 mobile CPU
At a special event in Beijing, Intel unveiled its new high-performance 8th generation mobile CPUs, including the new Core i9-8950HK and the new Xeon E-2168, both aiming at the highest-end mobile market.
With redesigned cooling block, better fan and LED logo
Calling it the 2018 Edition, Corsair has released a revised version of its quite popular Hydro Series H60 liquid CPU cooler, giving it a redesigned cold plate, a slightly updated radiator with better fan, white LED lighting on the pump/block unit and more.
Said it should ship on April 19th
German Amazon has leaked one of the AMD's upcoming Pinnacle Ridge CPUs, the Ryzen 5 2600X, with the shipping date set for April 19th.
AMD will keep AM4 and TR4 sockets
A fresh leak of AMD's CPU roadmap has leaked online confirming some of the previous rumors and codenames as well as giving a glimpse of new HEDT, CPU and APU codenames that will come in 2020.
The lineup includes four SKUs, ranging from $199 to $369
Following a recent leak where we saw some of the first Ryzen 2000 CPU benchmarks - codenamed Pinnacle Ridge - we now have the full set of slides which show the launch lineup, scheduled for April, as well as more performance and feature details for both CPUs and the new X470 chipset.
Not thermal paste like Raven Ridge APUs
In the aftermath of Raven Ridge delidding, which revealed that it uses thermal paste under the IHS, AMD's Robert Hallock took to Reddit to note that this won't be the case with the upcoming Pinnacle Ridge CPUs, based on 12nm manufacturing process and usually known as the Ryzen + CPUs.
