It hasn't even been a full year since Pat Gelsinger took over as CEO of Intel, but in a relatively short span he has made some big comments. His boldest to date, however, came in a video posted to his LInkedIn page, in which the CEO reflected on the past year while wearing a delightfully geeky Christmas sweater. The... Read more...
Once upon a time, there were two ways to overclock a CPU. Raising the multiplier has been the simplest and easiest option since it came to be, but old hardware nerds like this author will recall the days of raising motherboard front-side bus (FSB) clocks to accelerate memory accesses, as well as goosing the CPU clock...

We don't expect a whole lot from a sub-$50 processor, and we most certainly would not anticipate it hanging with a CPU that costs $400 more, let alone beating it. But that's precisely what a leaked benchmark run shows in regards to Intel's least expensive desktop processor based on Alder Lake, the Celeron G6900. With... Read more...
Alder Lake is an exciting launch for Intel and one the company is heavily pushing to gamers, with good reason—it's a stout architecture and great for gaming (see our Alder Lake performance review for our full analysis and benchmarks). That said, the hybrid makeup of Intel's 12th Gen Core CPUs tripped up some DRM... Read more...
Intel had a busy CES week with a bevy of announcements, including new additions to its desktop Alder Lake family. However, one SKU that was not announced at the event was the 12th Gen Core i5-12490F. Despite its no-show, this appears to be a legitimate chip, as indicated by a retail listing with several shots of the... Read more...
The next generation of Intel’s NUC made a brief cameo appearance at CES 2022. NUC PCs tend to cram much of the performance of a high-end desktop computer into a small form factor, and the Intel NUC 12 Extreme looks to continue that tradition. Code-named Dragon Canyon, this NUC is the successor to Intel’s Beast... Read more...
If you've digested any of our early benchmarks of Intel's Alder Lake CPUs, you'll be well aware that the extant 12th-gen Core chips are pretty fierce. Of course, the only chips anyone's been able to test thus far are the top-tier "K"-series parts. Regardless, Intel just announced the rest of the lineup at CES 2022... Read more...
Alder Lake is barely out the door and Intel is already talking about a new flagship SKU on the horizon. That would be the Core i9-12900KS. Previously rumored to be coming, Intel left no doubt during its CES livestream, during which time it confirmed and briefly demonstrated the upcoming "KS" variant running an... Read more...
We've covered a bunch of gaming laptops announced at CES (or just ahead of CES, since the event officially kicks off today, but whatever), but don't worry if you're a creator, there are new notebooks aimed at you as well. In fact, you are the target of Gigabyte's new Aero 16, Aero 17, and Aero 5 laptops, all of which... Read more...
Intel has just expanded its lineup of Alder Lake desktop processors with nearly two dozen new SKUs spanning its Celeron, Pentium, Core i3, Core i5, and Core i9 product categories. it also unveiled a trio of stock cooling solutions for its latest Alder Lake chips, and added three additional 600 series chipsets, all in...

It was inevitable that Intel would release laptop processors based on its Alder Lake architecture, and that day has officially arrived. As it did on the desktop, Intel is kicking things off with its high-performance parts, which in this case its its 12th Gen Core H-series lineup, with up to 14 physical cores and 20... Read more...
We have long admired the build quality and performance of Dell's premium XPS 13 laptops, which blend gorgeous edge-to-edge displays and thin construction with capable hardware (see our Dell XPS 13 2020 review for our most recent hands-on evaluation). The design has not changed too drastically over the years, which has... Read more...
The saga of AVX-512 on Alder Lake has been an interesting one. Originally, folks reasonably assumed that the 12th-Gen Core processors would support AVX-512 extensions. After all, it was supported on the last-generation Rocket Lake chips, to say nothing of Ice Lake before that. Then we found out about Alder Lake's... Read more...
Intel’s Alder Lake CPU announcement is expected in less than a week, but some of the accompanying motherboard pricing and specs have been leaked early. The leaks come from a computer component supplier in Ecuador and include several ASUS motherboards. TecnoMega Store has three models listed, all basic in features... Read more...
Update (12/31/01): Intel's Ryan Shrout decided not to wait for CES to showcase a 12th Gen Intel Core i9-12900K system rocking a Samsung PM1743 PCIe 5.0 solid state drive achieving over 13GB/s in IOMeter, but why not showcase a pair of drives? The question was posed, and Shrout answered with another awesome... Read more...
They may not be as glamorous as the high-end Core i7 and Core i9 CPUs that we enthusiasts love, but Intel's Core i3 and mainstream Core i5 models certainly make up a much bigger portion of the market, at least by volume if not by dollar value. We haven't officially seen hide nor hair of the 12th-Generation (Alder... Read more...
When pictures surfaced last week showing one of Intel's stock coolers for its upcoming 65W Alder Lake desktop processors, the reaction to the overall design wasn't exactly enthusiastic. To be fair, we need to wait and see how it actually performs before passing judgement. In the meantime, some pictures of another... Read more...
Intel's 12th Generation CPUs, code-named "Alder Lake," represent a major break from the traditional PC processor paradigm by including CPU cores from two different microarchitectures on the same chip. While those of us who are willing to strap 14-cm tower coolers to our CPUs have had the ability to build PCs around... Read more...
Well now, it appears Best Buy has done us all a solid by revealing price points and specifications for Intel's upcoming 65W Alder Lake-S processors. These are the non-K models that will join the existing stack of "K" and "KF" SKUs that got the Alder Lake party started, and will likely join the fray sometime around the... Read more...
It is often said that records are meant to broken, like when Steph Curry overtook Ray Allen to become the NBA's all-time three-point leader last week. Every once in a while, however, records end up in a tie. Such is the case with Cinebench R20. One of the world's top-ranked overclockers, Allen 'Splave' Golibersuch... Read more...
Intel has stepped into the Alder Lake era with the launch of its 12th Gen Core processors, which so far consist of six SKUs (and really three base models, each offered with and without integrated graphics). More models are obviously on the way, and if a fresh rumor is to be believed, one of them could be a specially... Read more...
Intel's 12th-generation Core processors, codenamed "Alder Lake," have already been out for about a month—at least, if you're an enthusiast or power user. If you're looking for a small-form-factor NUC, laptop, or ultra-mobile PC, you'll have to be content with a last-generation CPU (or perhaps an AMD processor) until... Read more...
