Intel Unleashes the Power of Speed: The Core i9-14900KS Sets New Standards for Desktop Performance

Thursday, March 14th, 2024

In the realm of desktop computing, speed and power are the twin pillars upon which the ultimate user experience rests. Today, Intel has once again affirmed its commitment to these principles with the announcement of its Intel® Core™ 14th Gen i9-14900KS processors, heralding a new epoch in desktop processor speeds.

Intel’s latest marvel, the i9-14900KS, bursts through previous boundaries by offering a staggering 6.2 gigahertz (GHz) max turbo frequency straight out of the box. This isn’t just another incremental step forward; it’s a giant leap that cements Intel’s status as the purveyor of the world’s fastest desktop processor. For the legion of PC enthusiasts, gamers, and content creators, this represents not just an upgrade but a transformation in what they can expect from their desktop systems.

“The Intel Core i9-14900KS showcases the full power and performance potential of the Intel Core 14th Gen desktop processor family and its performance hybrid architecture,” says Roger Chandler, Intel’s vice president and general manager of the Enthusiast PC and Workstation Segment. His words underscore a fundamental truth about today’s computing demands: they are evolving, and Intel is leading the charge in meeting these demands head-on.


Bridging Innovation: The Pioneering Partnership Between SOLIDWORKS and Cadence Redefines Product Development

Monday, February 19th, 2024

In an ambitious move that signals a new dawn for product development, Dassault Systèmes’ SOLIDWORKS and Cadence Design Systems have embarked on a pioneering partnership. This collaboration is set to transform the landscape of design and manufacturing by seamlessly integrating the realms of mechanical and electronic design. The convergence of SOLIDWORKS’ 3D CAD technology with Cadence’s unparalleled electronic design automation (EDA) capabilities, facilitated through the 3DEXPERIENCE cloud platform, marks a watershed moment in engineering.

A Synergy of Expertise

At the core of this groundbreaking partnership is the fusion of two distinct yet complementary worlds: the mechanical design strength of SOLIDWORKS and the electronic design finesse of Cadence, particularly its OrCAD and Allegro PCB design tools. This integration is poised to solve a perennial challenge in product design—bridging the gap between mechanical and electronic design workflows that have traditionally operated in silos.

The Unified Design Vision

The partnership’s cornerstone is its commitment to a unified design process. By integrating mechanical and electronic tools on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, the collaboration promises a cohesive design environment. This holistic approach ensures that every design element, from PCB layouts to mechanical enclosures, is synchronized, reducing errors and iterations, and significantly accelerating time-to-market for new products.


Hello, my name is Fusion 360

Tuesday, March 14th, 2017

Fusion 360.  What is it?  Why should I care?  Also, wasn’t it in Inventor like 5 years ago?  Doesn’t it have something to do with the cloud?

You have questions. We’re here to help.

Fusion 360 is already a powerful product development tool.  With a short development and release cycle, the product changes 10x faster than traditional CAD platforms.  Have an idea?  Let them know!  Autodesk is building this new platform from the ground up for the next generation of CAD, and using your input to make it better for you.


With Fusion 360 You Can … Predict The Future?

Tuesday, March 14th, 2017

If you haven’t opened Fusion 360 for a few days, you may be missing out on the latest huge update in Fusion 360!  It came to us on March 1st.

Just earlier that day I hosted a webinar on Fusion & traditional CAD (which you can watch here).  Now, I’m not exactly claiming that it was prophetic, but there is proof to be found that I discussed some things in the webinar specifically that were out of date just hours later…  The crazy fast update cadence of Fusion 360 is one of my favorite parts of the whole platform.  Can I really tell the future, or does Fusion 360 just update that fast?  I’ll let you decide.

Mobile Workstations – More Portable, More Powerful, More Dependable

Tuesday, June 16th, 2015

CAD designers understand the importance of having a workstation capable of meeting the demands of their resource-intensive applications. Yet many designers have been reluctant to invest in mobile technology in addition to their desktop machines. As powerful as mobile technology has become, it has historically struggled to match the performance and reliability of a high-powered desktop workstation, leaving designers looking to take their demanding CAD applications into the field with difficult choices.

But that’s changing.

In recent years, mobile workstations have gained ground in their ability to serve as complementary solutions. Here are a few reasons why you may want to rethink investing in a mobile workstation.


Improving the Reliability of Consumer Electronics Products through Realistic Simulation

Early product failures and product recalls are very costly. They result in loss of revenue, litigation, and brand devaluation among others. Hardware recalls are often costlier than software recalls as software patches can be easily downloaded and installed once flaws come to light. But recalls and early product failures tend to happen over and over again. Why? Because engineering teams are constantly under the gun to improve product performance, reduce form factors, and reduce time to market, all while cutting costs. In order to mitigate risk engineers need to develop a deeper understanding of the product behavior under real operating conditions and quickly evaluate design trade-offs based on overall system behavior.


A Tail of Innovation

“This new tool could change the entire way we design airplanes,” said Wygnanski, professor of aerospace and mechanical engineering in the University of Arizona College of Engineering.

Wygnanski has been developing, testing and perfecting active flow control technology for 40 years. For the last four years, he has worked with Emilio Graff, director of the Lucas Wind Tunnel at the California Institute of Technology, creating active flow control technology that promises to usher in smaller, lighter, quieter, more efficient airplanes. Active flow control refers to the manipulation of a flow field – through the addition of energy – to improve the performance of a solid body moving in a fluid, such as an airplane moving through the air.
