When Intel announced the lineup for its Arc "Alchemist" graphics cards, there were three tiers, just like its CPUs. We've seen Arc A300 GPUs, and we've seen Arc A700 GPUs, but so far, the A500 series is missing in action. Well now, a new benchmark leak may contain exactly that; with 16 Xe Cores, it lands directly... Read more...
If you follow hardware news, you likely recall the discovery that Intel's 12th generation Core processors, even the ones without the "K" suffix, could be overclocked on fancy motherboards that featured an external clock generator. Well, as it happens, despite the company bragging about it initially, that was... Read more...

DirectStorage is out! No, seriously—DirectStorage 1.1, which can drastically accelerate game asset loading time, is already released and available for developers to use. Unfortunately, there aren't actually any games that take advantage of DirectStorage yet, which is why PCGamesHardware.de had to use a synthetic demo... Read more...
If you know what you're doing and are willing to put in the time and research, overclocking is still a great way to squeeze out some added horsepower for essentially a free performance boost. You also have to be a bit lucky in playing the silicon lottery. To that end, an exhaustive roundup of Intel's 13th Gen Core... Read more...
Intel's current-generation Raptor Lake CPUs are rumored to have a refresh on the way, followed by Intel's first disaggregated client CPUs, Meteor Lake. After that, Arrow Lake is purported to bring a big increase in GPU performance. We've known that Intel's next move after ARL would be "Lunar Lake", but precious little... Read more...
Intel 4th Generation Xeon Processors (Sapphire Rapids) Intel’s tiled chiplet approach with specialized accelerators could open the door for some truly custom server recipes for individual customer demands.   Accelerated workloads can fly DDR5, PCIe Gen 5, and CXL 1.1 Support SKU models to suit wide a...
