Mac Developer: Intel details 8th-generation Core i7, i5 processors suitable for MacBook, dual-core MacBook Pro refresh

Intel details 8th-generation Core i7, i5 processors suitable for MacBook, dual-core MacBook Pro refresh: "Previously teased in May, the four processors launched by Intel on Monday are all meant for use in notebooks and all-in-one desktop systems, due to being designed with a thermal design power (TDP) of 15 Watts, meaning the processors run at low temperatures. Intel claims the new Core i5 and Core i7 chips can lead to notebook and tablet designs with up to 10 hours of battery life, as well as the performance boost, which is said to provide double the processing power of processors released five years ago. "

Personally, I think Intel is doing a great job of not screwing up a good thing that you've got going.

Mac Developer: Encryption key for iPhone 5s Touch ID exposed, opens door to further research

Encryption key for iPhone 5s Touch ID exposed, opens door to further research: "The tool and hack is not for the inexperienced. The outputs of the tool are binaries of the kernel and related software regulating the communications between the Touch ID sensor and Secure Enclave —but not any information transmitted presently or in the past between the Touch ID sensor and the Secure Enclave."

If this was a movie, it could be called The Legacy of Bunnie Huang.

Comp sci world shock: Bonn boffin proposes P≠NP proof, preps for prestige, plump prize • The Register: "This isn't purely an abstract issue. Current cryptography assumes P≠NP; if that turns out to be wrong, online security could become much more of a challenge."

Mac Developer: TSMC in mass production of 10nm 'A11' chips for Apple's 'iPhone 8'

TSMC in mass production of 10nm 'A11' chips for Apple's 'iPhone 8': "TSMC is applying the same 10-nanometer FinFET manufacturing technique being used to make A10X chips for this year's 10.5- and 12.9-inch iPad Pros, DigiTimes said on Monday. The A10X is in fact believed to be the first chip produced with the technique, though TSMC does have other clients."

Just when you think that Moore's law is over, FinFET smacks you upside the head.
