      Six months after the presentation of the ninth generation of Intel Core processors for desktop computers, Intel officially presented a similar line of chips for laptops, transformers, and other mobile devices. The new chips are built on the Coffee Lake architecture using an advanced 14nm process technology. According to Intel, the average frame rate in games increased by 56%, and the speed of editing 4K-video — by 54% compared to models three years ago.

      The top solution among the ninth generation of mobile processors from Intel was the eight-core (16 threads) Core i9-9980HK with a base frequency of 2.4 GHz and an increase to 5 GHz in Boost mode. It supports Hyper-Threading technology and the ability to overclock out of the box. The TDP value, as in all new chips, is 45W. The cache memory is 16 MB.
      According to Intel, i9-9980HK in comparison with last year's 8950HK provides 18% higher fps in the game Hitman 2, and when installing 4K-video performance gain is 28%. While playing, streaming and recording video from the screen in Black Ops 4, the new chip delivers 2.1 times higher frame rates.
      Intel Core i9-9980H is a slightly simplified version of 9980HK. From the flagship, it differs only in the lack of overclocking and the values of the base and Boosts frequency: 2.3 GHz and 4.8 GHz instead of 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz.

      Next in the line are Core i7-9850H and Core i7-9750H — six-core processors with 12 threads and 12 MB cache. Model 9850H partially unlocked for limited dispersal. The main differences between the chips in the operating frequencies. Junior model in the line at the moment is the Quad-core Core i5-9400H and Core i5-9300H.

      Presentation of new Intel processors should not wait in the coming months, but the network has already appeared the first details about them. According to the latest data, with the tenth generation chips made on the comet Lake architecture, the manufacturer will switch to the use of ten-thousandth values in the numbering of models. In addition, the technical characteristics of some future processors have become known.
      At the moment, disclosed details about only four mobile chips Intel tenth generation. They belong to the comet Lake-U (CML-U) family and are designed for use in ultra-books, mini-PCs and other devices that do not require a lot of power. All of them support Hyper-Threading technology and have TDP of 15 W.

      No sooner had the industry moved away from last year's Meltdown and Spectre, as the users faced a new danger — ZombieLoad. At risk were the owners of computers with Intel processors. This vulnerability could allow attackers to remotely steal someone else's data. We tell you how to protect yourself from potential danger.

      Intel confirmed the existence of ZombieLoad vulnerability and told that it consists of four errors in the microcode of processors. All personal computers and cloud servers are subject to hacking, built on Intel chips, released since 2011. This issue does not apply to devices with AMD processors.
      The essence ZombieLoad is the implementation of the attack on the processor by feeding large amounts of information, which he is not able to handle. To prevent failure of the chip addresses to the microcode, performing the restart. One of the errors allows at this point to access all the data that was processed by the processor cores. In normal operation, applications only have access to their own data.
      With ZombieLoad, attackers can find out which sites a user is viewing in real time, steal their passwords and access tokens from payment systems and take possession of other valuable information. However, to do this, a person needs to download the infected SOFTWARE to his computer and run it.

      Apple, Google, Microsoft, Amazon, and other major corporations have already begun distributing updates protecting against ZombieLoad. Intel has also released appropriate patches for all affected processors. The company noted that included in the firmware fix will clear the buffer of CPU in case of overload, thus preventing the access of malware to the data of other apps.
      To ensure the safety of the users of macOS should be updated to version 10.14.5 containing all necessary corrections. Microsoft has also released an appropriate patch for Windows users via Windows Update. If automatic updates installation is disabled on your computer, you should enable this option or download a new firmware version for Intel processors from a special Microsoft website.

      At IFA 2019, HUAWEI introduced the new flagship processor, the Kirin 990 5G. According to the manufacturer, this chipset has become the first in the world in many areas. In particular, this is the first 7-nm processor with a built-in 5G modem. The company also improved graphics performance and energy efficiency.

      According to HUAWEI, the capacity of the Kirin 990 5G in comparison with the Kirin 980 increased by 10% in single-core mode and by 9% in multi-core. In addition, the company promises best-in-class energy efficiency, so devices will last longer than competitors.
      Using the industry-leading 7nm + EUV technology, the Kirin 990 5G has become the industry’s most compact 5G mobile processor. In addition, it is also the first mobile chip with more than 10 billion transistors. Thanks to the built-in Balong 5000 modem, devices based on Kirin 990 5G will be able to download data via the Internet at speeds up to 2.3 Gb/s when connected to fifth-generation networks.
      Kirin 990 5G is also the first flagship chip with a dual-core neuroblock (NPU) based on the Da Vinci architecture, which includes large and small NPU cores. The former provides high performance and energy efficiency when performing heavy computing operations, while the latter, used for the first time in the industry, are responsible for performing tasks with ultra-low power consumption.

      The Kirin 990 5G central processor uses a three-tier structure to increase energy efficiency. It consists of two super-large cores with a frequency of 2.86 GHz, two large cores of 2.36 GHz and four low-power cores operating at a frequency of up to 1.95 GHz. As for the graphics subsystem, the Kirin 990 5G is the first to use the 16-core Mali-G76 graphics processor on the market. It is also worth noting the support for Kirin Gaming + 2.0 technology, which provides smoother gameplay and improved gaming performance.

      In addition to the Kirin 990 5G, the usual Kirin 990 will also be released, the main difference of which is the lack of 5G support. It is likely that the manufacturer will install these chips depending on the availability of fifth-generation networks in each country. The first devices based on the Kirin 990 5G will be the Mate 30 series smartphones and the folding Mate X.
      Together with the Kirin 990 5G and Kirin 990, HUAWEI also introduced the Kirin A1 processor, designed for wearable electronics, headphones and IoT devices. This is the world's first chip with support for Bluetooth 5.1 and Bluetooth 5.1 LE. The first device based on it was the new FreeBuds 3 wireless headphones.
