Robert Swan is the new CEO Intel has chosen after more than half a year

The seventh CEO in 50 years


Intel on Thursday announced that, Robert Swan will take a charge as the of chief executive officer after serving as interim CEO for the past seven months. Swan is now officially Intel’s seventh CEO in 50 years, and he steps into the role as Intel simultaneously navigates to a volume 10-nanometer product roll out, and prepares for 7nm.

Swan is somewhat of a surprise pick, given Intel’s history of hiring CEOs who had risen in rank at the company. According to Reuters, this is the first time Intel has picked a leader who didn’t start out much lower—Intel has typically been led by engineers who have worked at the company for decades.

“As Intel continues to transform their business to capture more a large and expanding opportunity that includes the data center, artificial intelligence and autonomous driving, while continuing to get value from the PC business, the board concluded after a thorough search that Bob is the right leader to drive Intel into its next era of growth,” said Chairman Andy Bryant. “The search committee conducted a comprehensive evaluation of a wide range of internal and external candidates to identify the right leader at this critical juncture in Intel’s evolution.”

Technically, Swan is an internal candidate. He had been serving as interim CEO since Brian Krzanich abruptly resigned seven months ago, and before that, he was Intel’s CFO since just 2016. It’s a relatively short tenure, though—Swan spent nine years at Ebay as CFO, and briefly worked at a private equity firm before joining Intel.

Bryant said Intel’s board “considered many outstanding executives” before ultimately deciding on Swan. Intel’s financial performance during the past seven months played a role in that decision.

“In my role as interim CEO, I’ve developed an even deeper understanding of Intel’s opportunities and challenges, our people and our customers,” Swan said. “When I was first named interim CEO, I was immediately focused on running the company and working with our customers. When the board approached me to take on the role permanently, I jumped at the chance to lead this special company.”

Having a permanent CEO gives Intel some added stability, and perhaps more importantly, it allows the company to focus its efforts squarely on future product releases. In addition to 10nm and 7nm products on the horizon, Intel is also getting into discrete graphics, with plans to launch its first modern discrete GPU in 2020.

Intel is also facing increased competition from AMD, which has reasserted itself into the enthusiast conversation with its Zen CPU architecture. AMD has a head start to 7nm as well, both with GPUs (Radeon VII) and CPUs (Zen 2).

While the pick is surprising to some—Intel’s share price is down a few percentage points, and AMD’s is up—tech analyst Patrick Moorhead at Moor Insights and Strategy thinks Intel ultimately made the right decision.

“I am a bit surprised as Swan said he didn’t want the role, but I always thought that he should be considered for it. Swan told me that as he was in the interim CEO role, he started to like and enjoy it,” Moorhead said. “I do think Intel’s strategy is the right one; the company needs to improve its execution, and bringing in an outsider without Intel experience didn’t make sense. Intel has a very strong bench, two who were considered for the CEO role, who will help Swan and Intel.”

This will be a telling year for Intel and its newest CEO. The first challenge will be to get 10nm out the door in volume. Barring any more delays, that will happen at the end of the year.


 

Unity developed a new game to test the limits of AI systems

This Obstacle Tower Challenge is meant to be a solid benchmark for intelligence system researchers


UNITY SAID THAT:

Today we are announcing the upcoming launch of the Obstacle Tower Challenge: a first-of-its-kind artificial intelligence challenge designed to test the capabilities of intelligent agents and accelerate the research and development of AI. The Obstacle Tower Challenge will be a new competition aimed at testing the vision, control, planning, and generalization abilities of AI agents — capabilities that have yet to be fully tested together.


With Obstacle Tower and a $100,000 of prizes set aside for participants to claim as part of thr contest, Unity hopes that it can provide Artificial Intelligence researchers with a new bench marking tool to evaluate self-learning software. Said: “We wanted to give the researchers something to really work with that would to an extreme degree challenge the abilities of the AI systems that are currently in research and development around the world,” Danny Lange, Unity’s vice president of AI and machine learning, told “What we really want to do here is create a tool for researchers to focus their work on and unite around and compare progress.”

“A lot of people think that AI is about building better product recommendations at Amazon. But at the end of the day, it’s really solving way more complex problems. It’s about dealing with vision, control, and other cognitive challenges,” Lange says. For Unity as a company, he adds that this type of work is also about helping establish its game development tool set as a place where cutting-edge research can, down the line, translate to industry advances. “We have as a mission to democratize game development, but we also want to democratize AI. We want to make sure that a lot of developers out there can get their hands on it.”

The Obstacle Tower Challenge officially begins on February 11, 2019, at 00:00:01 PST. At that time, entrants can review all the rules and regulations, download our Starter Kit and begin training their agents. Participants will have the opportunity to win prizes in the form of cash, travel vouchers, and Google Cloud Platform credits, valued at over $100,000.

We’ll check back in two weeks for our kick-off. For now, we encourage everyone to mark their calendars and learn more about the Tower!

PUBG Lite is a free and low-specification version of PUBG that’s now under beta testing

For those who want to play PUBG but don’t have good hardware or budget to fit in the game.


PUBG Corporation is testing a new version of Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds called PUBG Lite that will have reduced hardware requirements and—this is the big one—will be free.

“Our goal for PUBG Lite is simple: Deliver the Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds experience to players in areas where the core game’s required specifications are more difficult to achieve due to the hardware available,” the announcement says.

“To this end, the PUBG Lite team has focused on balancing lower hardware requirements, without compromising on our quality standards. The end result is a build that is playable even on computers and laptops utilizing integrated graphics.”

This is what you’ll need to play:

Minimum system requirements: 


  • OS: Windows 7/8/10, 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i3 2.4GHz
  • RAM: 4GB
  • Graphics: Intel HD Graphics 4000
  • HDD: 4GB

Recommended:


  • OS: Windows 7/8/10, 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i5 2.8GHz
  • RAM: 8GB
  • Graphics: Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 or AMD Radeon HD 7870
  • HDD: 4GB



About PUBG LITE

PUBG Lite will be a independently operating game, with its own development team and content creation stream, and will support solo, duo, and squad play in third-person perspective(TPP). Beta players will do battle on Erangel, the original PUBG map, but more “maps and content familiar to PUBG players” will be added at some point down the road. For now, the beta is only available in Thailand, but assuming it goes reasonably smoothly I would expect that market to broaden in the relatively near future.

We also expect it will lead into some interesting questions about the game’s future. Will a free PUBG cannibalize the premium version? Is PUBG Corp really going to support separate development tracks for what is essentially the same game—and for how long? And if it’s possible to make the game run reasonably well on an Intel HD4000 chipset, why not focus the effort on the existing version, rather than splitting into separate branches?

PUBG Corp said it will continue to analyze feedback and share updates on the beta as it progresses.


PUBG LITE CONTENTS(BETA)


<MAP->ERANGEL>

Erangel is a fictional island located in the black sea, and was the very first map introduced in PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS.

The military occupation tested chemical/biological experiments on the local populace, and a local resistance movement fought to reclaim the island which eventually leads to the island becoming abandoned.

Erangel contains varied environments such as a nuclear power plant, submerged city, swamp, mountain areas and many more.


Guess the price of website names in this farcical online game

It’s much more evoking than it sounds.


Cybersquatting used to be something the internet really cared a lot about, but now that it’s managed mostly by corporations (who still charge you exorbitant prices for clutch names), we don’t care as much anymore. Well, we care when someone registers a goofy name like elderscrollsvihammerfell, or what have you.

Anyways, Domain Names are worth a lot now, and guessing how much they’re worth based on name alone is a fine art. Thus, from designer Martin O’Leary based on a tweet by designer Holly Gramazio, we have the game domain-pricing. It’s a shockingly evoking experience trying to guess which of two domain names costs more to buy. It’s an even more shocking experience seeing which domain names someone wants you to pay thousands of dollars for. Which is worth more, commoditiesking.com or halfwater.com? caughtbehind.com or telephonez.net? What would you even do with caughtbehind.com? what is the website for? For training enthusiasts? Some kind of strange thing?

If you think you’ve got a good guess, you should try out Domain Pricing, which will pit two names against one another and ask which you think is the more expensive one to get your hands on. (Bear in mind that some domain names may be not safe for work. And that they’re usually the most valuable ones.)

Anyways, go play it right now and enjoy It’ll be fun, I swear. See how long a streak of right answers you can get. Our record is 15.

Qualcomm unveiled the Snapdragon 855 will be the chip in flagship smartphones of 2019

At the annual Tech Summit, this year held in Hawaii, Qualcomm has unveiled its next-generation smartphone chip, the Snapdragon 855. It is the first chip that will have 5G, and will be in many of the 2019 flagships from Samsung, Google and other phone manufacturers.


A  spokesperson for Samsung took to the stage to confirm that the next major release would feature the 855, though some markets will get Samsung’s on Exnyos processor instead.

The Snapdragon 855 will also support a brand new in-screen fingerprint sensor called the 3D Sonic sensor. Instead of recording a 2D image of your finger, it uses an ultrasonic sensor to build up a 3D model. This is said to work even if your finger is wet or oily.

The sensor isn’t part of the 855, and you’ll only see it if phone manufacturers decide to use it. It won’t put an end to the current trend for screen notches, since that will still be necesary for the selfie camera at a minimum.

4th Gen AI Engine

Not many details have been given yet, partly because Qualcomm is downplaying things such as CPU and GPU performance in favour of the overall experience. And so far it has only said that the latest AI Engine has 3x the performance of the one in the Snapdragon 845, and is twice as quick as other 7nm chips.

That means Apple’s A12 Bionic and Huawei’s Kirin 980. It also suggests the 855 itself is using a 7nm manufacturing process, which is no surprise.

The new AI engine is said to efficiently pick whichever processing core is appropriate for the best user experience.

It also looks very much like the focus of the 855 will be on AR and image processing.

Computer vision ISP

Part of the 855 platform is a brand new image signal processor. Like the NPU in the Kirin 980, this intelligently understands the scene when you point the camera and adjusts parameters to capture the best photos and videos.

We’ll learn more about this and the 855 in general tomorrow.

The final teaser concerns mobile gaming. Qualcomm announced Elite Gaming. This is a hollistic approach to gaming, and not simply a highly tuned GPU. Qualcomm spoke of the complete package of immersion, visuals and sound, adding that this won’t compromise long battery life and saying that, with the 855 in your phone, you’ll feel like you have a proper games console in your hands.

Recently Qualcomm announced the Snapdragon 675, to target gamers buying mid-range phones.

Snapdraon 855 5G

5G is part of the 855 of course. This is delivered via Qualcomm’s latest X50 modem which will work in partnership with new infrastructre from mobile operators to deliver “vastly faster speeds” than are possible with 4G.

Just cores and clockspeeds,No iGPU in the new Intel 9th Gen Processors

Intel announced that the new 9th Gen CPUs are on the way. We assumed that the processors would be the usual slate of non-K SKUs to accompany the existing Core i9-9900K, Core i7-9700K, and Core i5-9600K. Instead, Intel has pulled a fast one and most of the new 9th Gen CPUs that show up on its ARK database come with an “F” suffix. A quick look shows that these are effectively the same CPUs as the non-F parts, but without Intel’s integrated graphics.
Here's the current list of Intel's 9th Gen processors (with existing parts greyed out)


Here you can see the 9900KF, 9700KF, and 9600KF are similar to the non-F parts in all specification other than the graphics. Most of the new CPUs don’t have their prices listed, which means they’re only for OEM customers (eg, Dell, HP, Lenovo, etc.) Of the seven newly listed parts, only one has a price, the i5-9400F. There are also two 8th Gen CPUs, though the differences between Coffee Lake and the Coffee Lake refresh are mostly minor, especially for consumer use. Keep in mind that no Intel graphics means features like Quick Sync and Clear Video are also missing.
If deactivating the graphics seems uneven, it’s just another way of harvesting a usable product from a potentially defective die. All the current Coffee Lake refresh parts use the same basic die, which has eight CPU cores and iGPU’s. Sometimes a die is partially defective, and shutting off a couple of cores allows it to work properly. (Incidentally, this is why parts like the i5-9600K often won’t clock as high as i9-9900K—the CPU comes from ‘less desirable’ silicon and so may not clock as high without having errors.) And sometimes it’s the graphics portion that fails to pass testing and validation, which potentially leaves Intel with a bunch of ‘useless’ chips. Until now.
The harvesting of dies is nothing new, but the timing of these F-suffix parts is interesting. Intel’s much-delayed 10nm process meant that as plans were in place to slow down the production of 14nm parts in exception of 10nm replacements arriving, Intel ended up with a bit of a shortage on its 14nm CPUs. (We think potentially upgrades thanks to Meltdown/Spectre might have also played a role.) If you have a chip shortage and a bunch of ‘duds’ sitting around that don’t have functional graphics, there are certainly customers that don’t need the graphics, and so we get these new CPUs.
These certainly won’t be the last of Intel’s 9th Gen CPU lineup. At some point we’ll likely see Celeron and Pentium chips, T-suffix (lower power) parts, and more multiplier locked SKUs. There are 28 7th Gen Kaby Lake desktop SKUs for example, and 27 8th Gen desktop SKUs, compared to only eight (that I can find) 9th Gen SKUs. Mobile 9th Gen CPUs are also due out next quarter, and that’s when we’re likely to get another chunk of desktop parts.
