Intel delays for the umpteenth time the arrival of its 10-nanometer CPUs, Whiskey Lake will repeat in 14 nm

Intel Whiskey Lake

Intel resists Moore’s law. The company worked like a clock with that unstoppable Tick-Tock cycle that assured us lithographic jumps every two years, but those were other times. We have been using Intel 14-nanometer processors for four years, and it will be at least another year until we see the first CPUs manufactured with a 10- nanometer process. Brian Krzanich explained the difficulties of a jump that is still resisting and that returns to make the image of this giant…

PC that costs $37,000

The golden age of the PC was left behind, but there is still interest in a segment that in fact continues to provide us with crazy and absolutely exaggerated models in terms of both price and performance. We have an excellent example in the OrionX, a desktop PC that costs 26,599.99 pounds (about $ 37,000 or 30,000 euros at the current rate) and that is a song to excess. What can a PC carry to cost…
