The big picture: The world’s largest chipmaker isn’t large enough... 14nm supply issues have plagued Intel for nearly two years since they began the switch to the improved 10nm node, which has failed to be efficient enough to satisfy market demand. Despite an apology and a myriad of ‘solutions’ Intel’s troubles have limited the sales of PC and laptop manufacturers, forcing Dell and others to look at AMD. Intel, in turn, has reportedly reached out to Samsung and TSMC for help and will be keeping their older chips around, too. Intel has officially rescinded their end of life notice for the Pentium G3420, a 22nm Haswell chip released in 2013, only a week after first discontinuing it. The aging dual-core will “continue to be available for orders as usual.” While the G3420 is the only chip we can confirm has disappeared and reappeared, we’ve reached out to Intel to inquire about its other Haswell siblings. They’re mostly listed as … [Read more...] about Haswell is back: Intel reverses decision to discontinue 22nm Pentium CPUs

The first commercially-available processor to reach clock speeds of 5GHz is now a reality courtesy of AMD. The FX-9590, the latest addition to the chipmaker’s FX lineup, features eight Piledriver processing cores and is completely unlocked as per its Black Edition branding to aid in overclocking, should 5GHz still not be enough for you. The Fx-9590 carries a base clock of 4.7GHz but is able to hit the 5GHz mark using Turbo Core technology which means it’s about 17.5 percent faster than the FX-8350, AMD’s current top chip. It’ll arrive using the AM3+ package, we’re told, because there aren’t many boards that officially support a ship with such high power consumption. The chip will initially be available only through system integrators which means the average enthusiast won’t be able to get their hands on it right away. The reason for this likely has to do with cooling requirements as some end users won’t have the necessary cooling … [Read more...] about AMD first to reach 5GHz with FX-9590 processor
