Samsung targets 100 percent renewable energy use by 2020

  Samsung targets 100 percent renewable energy use by 2020 Samsung has announced plans to power its US, Europe and China operations entirely by renewable energy sources within two years. It's an ambitious but achievable goal, no doubt spurred by the environmental credentials its rivals already boast in this area. Apple says it's now powered entirely by renewable energy, Google is offsetting all of its operational energy through wind and solar, and T-Mobile has already announced plans for 100 percent renewable energy by 2021. It makes financial sense, too, given reports that renewables will likely be cheaper than fossil fuels in just a couple of years' time.

There's no telling which market Intel is targeting first , but either way, both NVIDIA and AMD should take notice. As Shrout points out, even a 2020 release seems surprisingly fast for Intel . While that partnership was surprising at first , it ' s most clearly a stopgap plan until Intel can deliver its own GPUs .

Raja working on Intel Arctic Sound discrete GPU for gaming, will be an MCM product. The industry had been abuzz with speculation ever since Intel first announced its plans to enter the discrete GPU market.

That confirmation came in a short tweet today: Intel plans to release its first discrete GPU -- one that isn't integrated into a CPU like its current graphics -- in 2020.

In a meeting with analysts last week, Intel executive Navin Shenoy noted that it's exploring both server and client (gaming and professional graphics) offerings, according to Ryan Shrout. There's no telling which market Intel is targeting first, but either way, both NVIDIA and AMD should take notice.

Intel promises more powerful, longer-running PCs at Computex

  Intel promises more powerful, longer-running PCs at Computex A look at new CPUs, multiscreen PC prototypes and laptop screens that use less power.One important theme of Intel's announcements is that PCs, especially laptops, are still by far the most-used platform for creation and productivity. Bryant says, "When people really need to get things done, over 80 percent turn to their PC.

The giant chip manufacturer Intel is betting heavily on dedicated GPUs , hence, it has just unveiled its first discrete GPU prototype. This chip is not going to be released in the short term to the market, but it does show that Intel is taking this new path very seriously.

Look out AMD and Nvidia, Intel could get into the graphics card game by 2020 . Its “Arctic Sound” and “Jupiter Sound” discrete GPUs were originally intended to spend their lives toiling away in data But according to Ashraf Eassa of The Motley Fool, Intel ’s graphics chief Raja Koduri has other plans .

As Shrout points out, even a 2020 release seems surprisingly fast for Intel. When it announced Koduri's hiring last November, along with the formation of a new Core and Visual Computing Group, Intel was basically starting from scratch. While the company's integrated graphics technology has steadily improved over the years, it still can't hold a candle to the performance of a dedicated GPU. That's one reason why Intel teamed up with AMD to integrate a Radeon GPU into a Core processor, which would allow for decent gaming performance in thin and light machines. While that partnership was surprising at first, it's most clearly a stopgap plan until Intel can deliver its own GPUs.

Lenovo gives its Legion gaming laptop line a tasteful makeover .
If I asked you to imagine a gaming laptop, flashy designs, colorful lights and beefy chasses probably come to mind. Lenovo wants to move away from that motif and appeal to more users by redesigning its Legion series of gaming systems. Gamers come in all shapes and sizes, and they're not all into loud colors or eye-catching logos. Some prefer subtlety, and classier designs, which is what you'll get with the new laptops. For starters, the Y530 laptop, which will be a Best Buy exclusive when it's available in June for $930, is noticeably smaller than its predecessor, and loses the red accents from before.
