By now even the 8K-resolution is a very important thing. In the following article we want to explain what stands behind these terms and in what exactly makes them different.
Half of the year has passed and in the IT market things are going wild. In this article we talk about Microsoft, who are shutting down Windows 7 updates for Kabylake CPUs. Also we want to mention the new AMD embedded CPUs that set new benchmarks regarding high performance.
Since the beginning of 2018 the security holes Spectre and Meltdown, that were found in Intel CPUs are on everyone’s lips. Just now that there are some helpful updates, researchers found new – even more – security holes in these processors.
Owners of older PCs with Windows 10 are waiting desperately for BIOS updates. The affected CPUs need these updates to protect Windows 10 against Spectre (variant 2) – but Microsoft doesn’t provide them. As an alternative there is now an optional Windows update.
After the occurrence of Spectre and Meltdown at the beginning of this year it got fairly quiet about these processor security holes. Intel’s CEO, Brian Krzanich published a post regarding the security problems Spectre and Meltdown and explains that Intel is going to continue mitigating their effects and what was already done against those exploits.
