Intel recently issued a product change notification (PCN), which is named Apollo Lake. Four low-power Pentium N4200 and Saiyang N3350/J3355/J3455 processors have the problem of LPC, RTC and SD signal attenuation too fast. They will not be able to continue running after years of continuous use.
To this end, Intel upgrade the step of the four processors from B1 to F1, and add the letter suffix E at the end of the model, it is recommended to upgrade as soon as possible.
In fact, similar defects appeared in the Atom C2000 series, resulting in a large number of manufacturers such as Qunhui unable to use network equipment, Intel had to announce a recall and provide reserves to compensate, but this time no compensation plan was given.
Soon, however, Intel withdrew the notice and updated the version online todayRemoving the description of product defects, emphasizing that the existing B1 step-by-step version of Pentium N4200, Saiyang N3350/J3355/J3455 still meet the quality standards of PC usage, will not stop production and delist, Intel CCG (Client Division) will continue to supply.
But,If the customer has a longer product life cycle, the, Intel IOTG (Internet of things division will provide a new F1 step version, fixed LPC signal attenuation defects, enough to use for 15 years.
In addition, due to packaging changes, the thickness of step-by-step version of F1 increases slightly. Manufacturers may pay attention to compatibility issues when designing products, but the specific data are not disclosed.
In other words, the old step version of B1 does have signal attenuation defects, but Intel believes that it fully meets the life requirements of consumer PC products (although not specific time), so it will not stop production, recall, F1 new step version is provided to the network, embedded and other areas that require longer service time.
New version notice
Of the many events organized by Intel in the past year, Architecture Day (Architecture Day, held in Santa Clara in December last year, is almost the hardest core and the most important technology, Keynote.. At that time, Raja Koduri,Jim Keller,Murthy Renduchintala and other product lines such as Daniel appeared on the stage, including Foveros 3D packaging chip technology, Sunny Cove CPU architecture, Xe graphics card and so on.
This week, when communicating with netizens,Raja Koduri, senior vice president and chief architect of Intel, says the, Architecture Day 2.0 campaign is expected to take place early next year.
Outside analysis, the probability of Architecture Day 2.0 will be a leading and guiding activity. After all, in 2020, 10-nm desktop CPU, XVideo cards (Gen 12 Checkout and Unique Display) and Lakefield will be listed for the first time or on a large scale.
Especially for X.EFor graphics cards, Intel has high hopes. Francisco Jerez Gem, a member of Intel Linux's open source graphics technology team,Gen 12 has rewritten the EU unit most profoundly, which is the biggest change in architecture since i965.
Besides, Intel announced today that it will work in depth with the International Olympic Committee and the Tokyo Organizing Committee to promote a stronger 2020 Olympic Games after the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics.
Intel will be the key application in this Olympic GamesCalculation, connection, experienceThree areas of technology, including 5G platform, AI solutions, immersive media, E-sports and so on.
One of the most interesting things to pay attention to isNEC facial recognition, Intel will provide large-scale face recognition system for Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games
It's based on Intel's Core i5 processor (not to mention any generation), and will be used forOver 300,000 people were identified at the Olympic venues and accommodation entrances.Including athletes, volunteers, media and other staff, it helps to prevent identity fraud-related risks and shorten the long waiting time for identity checks.
Other cooperative technologies include:
3D Athlete Tracking (3DAT)
Developed by Intel, this technology is based on a new generation of computing examples of Aliyun driven by Intel's second-generation to strongly scalable processors. In cooperation with Olympic Broadcasting Service (OBS), it uses four translation-mounted and highly mobile cameras to capture the shape and movement of athletes, and uses pose estimation algorithm to analyze motion. Sports biomechanics of athletes.
Virtual reality training
Online qualifying tournament will be launched in early 2020. Any player can participate in the online qualifying tournament. The live qualifying tournament in Katowice, Poland, in June will decide which team will go to Tokyo from 22 to 24 July 2020.
