  • Intel Gemini Lake Block Diagram and Yet More Info (CNX)

    So yesterday, I wrote about some of the new features of Intel Gemini Lake processors like native HDMI 2.0, 4-wide pipeline, 10-bit VP9, and possible built-in 802.11ac wireless controller. I went to bed, and somehow this morning I woke up with something that looks like Gemini Lake (GLK) block diagram, and a few more details.



    So we indeed have HDMI 2.0 output, as well as DP 1.2a and eDP 1.4, and an embedded wireless controller via the CNVi (Connectivity Integration Architecture) block for WiFi’s MAC and Bluetooth’s MAC + Baseband modem. We’ll have plenty of USB 3.0 host interfaces, and the usual PCIe and SATA 3 interfaces. Still no UFS support, but eMMC 5.1 is supported, as well as x128 DDR4, LPDDR3 and LPDDR4 memory up to 2400 MHz (No ECC support). Cache size is confirmed to be 4MB for up to four GoldMond Plus (GLM+) cores, which combined with the wider pipeline (4 vs 3) will contribute to 10% to 15% better CPU performance compared to Apollo Lake. The Gen9LP GPU in GLK processors will come with up to 18 execution unit.

    Another difference will be the update of GMM speech acceleration engine to the GNA version of the SIP with support for DNN (Dynamic Neural Networks) algorithms that could be used for applications such as
    Microsoft Cortana.

      trebor
      A new report by Cisco's Talos Group suggests that the CCleaner hack was more sophisticated than initially thought. The researchers found evidence of a second payload during their analysis of the malware which targeted very specific groups based on domains.

      On September 18, 2017
      Piriform reported that the company's infrastructure distributed a malicious version of the file cleaning software CCleaner for about a month.

      The company's infrastructure was compromised, and users

    • Linux Driver Update Fixes Apollo Lake Passthrough Problems
      trebor
      There is finally good news from an Intel developer when it comes to the HDMI audio passthrough problems that we’ve been seeing with the Intel Apollo Lake and Kaby Lake based devices that utilize an LSPCon to convert the DP 1.2 signal to HDMI 2.0 signal. Previously DTS-X, DTS-HD and Dolby TrueHD audio formats were not working at all under Linux, even if they were ok under Windows.

      Why this was important? Well, for example, it was basically impossible to hear any Dolby Atmos content on

    • Amlogic S805X Processor is Designed for Low Cost TV Boxes with 1080p H.264, H.265 and VP9 Video Support
      trebor
      The low end of the TV box market is now highly competitive with Rockchip and Amlogic battling to offer the cheapest solutions available, as we’ve seen in a recent factory price list of TV boxes with RK3229 based devices selling for as low as $17.8, and Amlogic S905W based boxes going for $17.5 and up (per unit) for orders of 200 pieces. Amlogic has been working on an even lower cost SoC with Amlogic S805X based on four Cortex A53 cores, the same Mali-450MP GPU, but no 4K support, and instead H.264,...

      Update 9/18: CCleaner Cloud version 1.07.3191 is also reported to be affected
      Introduction

      Supply chain attacks are a very effective way to distribute malicious software into target organizations. This is because with supply chain attacks, the attackers are relying on the trust relationship between a manufacturer or supplier and a customer. This trust relationship...
