They reach a frequency of up to 5.6 GHz, the highest speed available for notebooks, allowing single-threading to be accelerated by up to 11%, and multitasking by up to 49% compared to the previous generation of chips.

As we have mentioned, this family of Intel chips has up to 24 cores, of which 8 are for performance and 16 for efficiency. They are also capable of working with up to 32 threads, and have an improved Intel Thread Director. They are compatible with up to 128 GB of RAM memory, and have Intel Killer Wi-Fi 6E, which allows the equipment that integrates them to achieve Internet speeds up to six times faster. In addition, among other things, it offers Bluetooth connectivity with Intel Bluetooth LE Audio and Bluetooth 5.2, and compatibility with Thunderbolt 4.

Regarding the new processors 13th Generation Core Series P and U, are designed for laptops with a thin and light design. They have up to 14 cores, of which 6 are for performance and the remaining 8 for efficiency. In addition, it incorporates improved Intel Thread Director.

In addition, they include new graphics features Intel Iris X. Including Intel Arc Control and XandSS Super Sampling. They are compatible with DDR4 and DDR5 memory, and integrate Intel WiFi 6E and Intel Connectivity Performance Pack. The latter encompasses, among others, Intel WiFi Proximity Sensing and Intel Bluetooth LE audio. On the other hand, they support up to four Thunderbolt 4 ports.

The company has also announced the N Series chip range, designed for basic equipment, as a successor to the Intel Pentium and Celeron brands. They are specially designed for equipment intended for educational environments and Internet of Things applications. They offer cores with Gracemont microarchitecture and developed with Intel 7 process technology.

They have a performance that exceeds the previous generation by 28% in running applications, and 64% in working with graphics.

Microsoft Extends ESU Support for Windows Server 2008 and R2



When an operating system ends its life cycle, Microsoft usually considers the possibility of offering extended support, which usually ends up being paid, or may be subject to some type of special condition. The latter is what has happened with Windows Server 2008 and 2008 R2, two operating systems that have ended their life cycle and are no longer supported in 2020.

The thing is that Windows Server 2008 and 2008 R2 still have a significant user baseand for this reason Microsoft has decided an additional year of support of the ESU type, acronym for “extended security updates”. This is good news for companies that still use the operating system, but it has one important condition, and that is that it will only be available to those who are Microsoft Azure customers.

This extended period of security updates will be active until January 9, 2024. If you are wondering if this will be a free program, I can tell you that it is not, and that Microsoft will bill it as it normally does with extended support programs.

In case you are wondering why so many professionals are still using Windows Server 2008 and 2008 R2 the answer is very simple, because in more than one case upgrading to a new operating system requires significant expenses that can derive from a hardware renewal, from a prolonged period of inactivity, from updating and developing new applications if necessary or from a little of everything that we have just said.

Microsoft has confirmed all the versions of Windows Server 2008 that will be able to benefit from this year of extended support, and we have listed them as is:

  • Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1 (SP1) and 2008 Service Pack 2 (SP2).
  • Windows Embedded POSReady 7.
  • Windows Embedded Standard 7.
  • All Azure virtual machines (VMs) running Windows Server 2008 and 2008 R2 operating systems on Azure, Azure Stack, Azure VMWare Solutions, or Azure Nutanix Solution.

It does not seem that they are going to give more extensions once this is finished, so if your company is using any of those operating systems you should be clear that time is running out, and that in a matter of a year you will be tied to an operating system without support that could become a time bomb in terms of security.

Apple will abolish the position of Head of Product Design



The departure of Jonathan Ive from Apple was one of the most shocking news of 2019, not in vain are we talking about what was Head of Product Design in that company, responsible for some of its most successful products, and a professional who was part of the bitten apple company for more than 30 years.

It is true that at first there was no complete break between Ive and Applesince both continued to work together through an independent agency founded by the former executive, but in the end both parties decided to put an end to their adventure, and a final separation was confirmed last July.

The position that Ive left was filled by Evans Hankey, but we know that this executive also plans to leave the company in the coming months. What will happen then with the position of Head of Product Design? The normal thing would be to look for a new professional that lives up to that position, but according to a new report presented by Bloomberg it won’t be like that.

The apple company will abolish the position of Head of Product Design, and the product design team will report to and report directly to Apple’s COO, Jeff Williams. To avoid internal problems, Apple will give more important roles to the designers of key products for the apple company, but it seems that this has not been liked by everyone, and that some employees are upset with Apple’s decision.

The truth is that, if we analyze the situation that existed previously, it is not as important a change as it might seem at first glance. Evans Hankey acts as the liaison for the design team, but in the end it depended on Jeff Williams and had to answer to himso with this move Apple would be eliminating an intermediate position that in the end would not be “essential”, and would simplify the hierarchical structure of the product design team.

It is also important to note that this change reinforces the position of Jeff Williams, a high-profile executive at Apple who many see as Tim Cook’s possible successor. We’ll see how the situation evolves, and if Apple is really able to get on without a Head of Product Design.
