Intel: Chip performance takes a 6% hit with security updates

"Security is job No. 1 for Intel and our industry", he said. The platform synthesizes the automotive-grade Intel Atom processors with the possibilities of the Mobile EyeQ5 chips to create level three, four and five autonomous cars.

Krzanich's comments at CES - the technology trade show formerly known as the Consumer Electronics Show - gave him the opportunity to address attendees from across the worldwide tech industry. The new security patches have not slowed its performance, but it will use the security issues as an opportunity to re-evaluate its use of Intel products, said Chief Technology Officer John Graham Cumming.

Krzanich unveiled Intel's first autonomous vehicle in its 100-car test fleet, the company said in a statement.

The company also signed new partnerships with Chinese automaker SAIC Motor and digital mapping company NavInfo to collect the same data within the Chinese market.

For those who came in late Intel chips were discovered to have a security flaw, forcing companies to respond and reassure customers and tell befuddled consumers what steps they are taking to protect them.

Intel continued their themes of data and connectivity in the other aspects of their presentation.

The CES 2018 keynote was the moment when the CEO of Intel let it be known that the security flaws that were present in the processors of the company would be rectified.

The State Department officials said they could not address or speculate on such matters in a public hearing. Critics of the Cuban government said they must know more than they are letting on about what happened.

How artificial intelligence, 5G connectivity, and big data will shape the technology-centric future were all talking points at this year's Intel CES exhibit.

In addition to Intel firmware updates, the Meltdown and Spectre flaws also generally require operating system updates.

Krzanich said: "We are still discovering new ways to apply the power of AI and data".

To illustrate Intel Studios' innovation, Mr. Krzanich showed a clip of a classic western scene shot with Intel's 3D capturing technology, the first clip to be shot on the studio's volumetric stage.

Krzanich took time to tout the company's 49-qubit chip, which he described as a "major breakthrough" for quantum computing, before touting the changes in transport Intel is helping to bring about.

Their goal is to use data to develop and deliver the most realistic content possible. These advances, including quantum and neuromorphic computing, have the potential to help industries, research institutions and society solve problems that now overwhelm today's classical computers.

The unlimited resource, as Krzanich called data, will impact society much the way the invention of the combustible engine and computer did in previous centuries. "As audiences are moving from a flat screen to an immersive experience we'll be able to convey the world in a way closer to reality than cinema has ever been able to do before", Paramount CEO and Chairman Jim Gianopulos said Monday at CES.
