Intel's processors include hardware to help with monitoring their own performance. Unsurprisingly, these are known as "Performance Monitoring Units" (PMU). The company releases JSON files that map the raw data provided by the PMUs to human-readable events and has already released one for its 14th-generation Meteor... Read more...
If you're a PC gamer, you are likely someone who likes to revisit old favorites. After all, one of the greatest benefits of PC gaming (versus game consoles) is the ability to freely go back and enjoy classic titles from ages past. Doing so may be clumsy on Intel's Arc GPUs, however, as it turns out that they don't... Read more...
Intel's Tom Petersen and Ryan Shrout have given more performance marks for the anticipated Arc A750 in a video released late yesterday, August 10, 2022. The new performance encompasses both Intel's testing on the A750 and an NVIDIA RTX 3060 GPU for comparison. This follows Intel's announcement earlier this week of its... Read more...
Leakers are having a heyday right now over impending hardware launches from AMD, NVIDIA, and Intel. Intel in particular has had its 13th generation Raptor Lake processors exposed in various benchmarks which highlighted its single-threaded might. This new leak shows the flagship Core i9-13900K trouncing its Core... Read more...
Today, Intel formally unveiled the Arc Pro A-Series of graphics cards. The announcement covered the first three offerings that Intel intends to bring to market. These consist of two small form factor desktop GPUs – the A40 and A50 – as well as a mobile option – the A30M – destined for laptops. In the press release... Read more...
The only Arc graphics cards we've seen so far have been a couple of "Limited Edition" models of the higher-end parts and then of course the Gunnir Arc A380 Photon card. The fact that nearly a month out from their rumored release the only available desktop Arc parts were the Gunnir cards was causing some folks to doubt... Read more...
If you've ever done any livestreaming on the internet, then you already know that one of the most important technical aspects of doing so is properly configuring your stream settings. Your selection of video encoder and its bitrate can have a particular influence. Most folks streaming these days are using the... Read more...
Early reviews of the Intel Arc graphics cards have not been bursting with praise. We only have reputable third-party reviews of the entry level Arc A380 thus far, but even with suitably lowered expectations, no one is recommending these Intel discrete GPUs for general use. A video published by Intel Graphics today... Read more...
It would be pretty reasonable to expect Intel's next-gen Raptor Lake processors to not overclock very well. After all, they share the same manufacturing process as its current-generation Alder Lake processors, and those chips already run darn hot at stock configurations. Well, there is at least a little headroom in... Read more...
Evidence of a number of CPU-Z benchmark runs using a system based upon an Intel Core i7-13700K engineering sample (ES) have turned up on-line. Images and videos recording a PC’s screen appear to show an overclocked Raptor Lake, or 13th gen Intel Core processor, being pushed to 6GHz on all performance cores (P-cores)... Read more...
Recent rumors have implied that top brass at Intel were considering the cancellation of Arc's entire product line. While Intel has been known to do such a thing—that was the eventual fate of Larrabee—it seems unlikely to us given that the AXG (Accelerated Computing Systems and Graphics) division cost the company some...

Aside from death and taxes, one thing we could typically count on is that come hell or high water, Intel would post gains in each and every one of its earnings reports. That's been the case for decades...until now. Amid a challenging economic environment (for a number of reasons), Intel reported a 22 percent... Read more...
Intel would obviously love it if your next PC paired one of its Core processors with an Arc-powered graphics card, like the Arc A750 or A770 (neither of which is actually available yet, but should be soon). That doesn't mean it's going to shun support for AMD's platforms with its GPUs, though. That would be ludicrous... Read more...
Intel and MediaTek are taking their business relationship to the next level by forming a strategic chip making partnership. In an effort to diversify things on the manufacturing side, MediaTek is tapping Intel Foundry Services (IFS) to produce multiple chips for a range of smart edge devices using advanced process...

We may have just seen a key benchmark result for the upcoming 13th gen Intel Core processor family, code named Raptor Lake. A direct comparison appears to have emerged, pitting an Intel Core i7-13700K system with DDR5 against a previous seemingly otherwise identical result on a system featuring DDR4. Yes, it could be...

As usual, the closer we get to a product launch, the more leaks we see. Intel's 13th-generation Core family, codenamed Raptor Lake, is expected to be announced in September, and should have completed manufacturing awhile back. It'll launch with its own new chipset and line of motherboards of course, but it's also... Read more...
Top 300 winners from the Intel Arc Scavenger Hunt received another update about the Arc GPUs they won. While there is still no word on when the Alchemist GPUs will be shipped out, the specific cards the top 300 will be getting were announced, along with an option for those weary of waiting on their prize. Intel's... Read more...
Intel's current 12th-generation Core processors are built using the Alder Lake design, which leverages the Golden Cove architecture for the P-cores and Gracemont architecture for the E-cores. Next-gen parts, codenamed Raptor Lake, are expected to use a revised Golden Cove, known as Raptor Cove, for the P-cores, and... Read more...
It's not likely a coincidence that we're seeing a bevy of 13th Gen Raptor Lake benchmark leaks all of a sudden. This typically happens when a launch is imminent. Officially, we still don't know when Intel will formally introduce Raptor Lake or when the next-gen chips will release to retail. But unofficially, they... Read more...
One of the key characteristics we've seen so far in Arc graphics card benchmarks is a predominant softness in DirectX 11 titles versus those using the newer DirectX 12 and Vulkan APIs. The latter two APIs are much lower-level interfaces, giving game programmers greater control over the hardware. As a result, there's a... Read more...
If you're reading this post, then you're surely already familiar with the Gunnir Arc A380 Photon graphics card that we've posted about several times before. This is the first and foremost add-in-board partner card for Intel's Arc family of GPUs, and it's currently making the rounds of tech hardware journalism. The... Read more...
Oh no, Intel's discrete desktop graphics cards might not be great at mining, what in the world will we ever do!? Perhaps rejoice if you're a gamer, content creator, or anyone who has no interest whatsoever in cryptocurrency mining. At least for the time being, it appears as though Intel's GPU drivers for its Arc... Read more...
