This week, Avram Piltch discusses some of the major advances that have happened in the world of processors in the past few weeks. He begins with the official release of Windows 10 on ARM, the new ARM-powered computers that run a complete version of Windows (compared to the previous Windows RT). The first generation can run most Win32 apps (32-bit applications), while a future update will add 64-bit application support as well.
Next are the Kaby Lake G processors from Intel. These processors combine Intel's processor power with AMD's integrated Vega graphics. These processors launched along side the new Coffee Lake processors, the full upgrade to the 8th Generation Core line, which exist in the i3 to i9 lines.
Each of these products has a particular user in mind, and Avram's got the information about each. He's also has a guide on processor choice on LAPTOP Magazine.
Scott is a developer who has worked on projects of varying sizes, including all of the PLUGHITZ Corporation properties. He is also known in the gaming world for his time supporting the rhythm game community, through DDRLover and hosting tournaments throughout the Tampa Bay Area. Currently, when he is not working on software projects or hosting F5 Live: Refreshing Technology, Scott can often be found returning to his high school days working with the Foundation for Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology (FIRST), mentoring teams and helping with ROBOTICON Tampa Bay. He has also helped found a student software learning group, the ASCII Warriors, currently housed at AMRoC Fab Lab.
Avram's been in love with PCs since he played original Castle Wolfenstein on an Apple II+. Before joining Tom's Hardware, for 10 years, he served as Online Editorial Director for sister sites Tom's Guide and Laptop Mag, where he programmed the CMS and many of the benchmarks. When he's not editing, writing or stumbling around trade show halls, you'll find him building Arduino robots with his son and watching every single superhero show on the CW.
