Intel has finally set the debut date for the top of its Alchemist graphics card line-up. The Arc A770 and A750 will hit store shelves on the 12th of this month, just ten days away. We have cards in hand, and of course, we also have in-depth coverage of them on the way. If you're desperate to know how they perform in... Read more...
It's the first of October, which means there's only 11 days left before you can buy your own GeForce RTX 4090—assuming your pockets are deep enough, anyway. If you've got the dosh but are on the fence regarding whether to dole it out for a dominant GPU, here's one more data point for you: a Geekbench 5... Read more...
We're blending together a couple of leaks today, both because they inform each other, and because that's just how we roll. A curious result found in the Einstein@Home database seems to be for an unreleased Threadripper CPU. A separate AMD roadmap leak from a conference in Indonesia doesn't have a lot of new...

AMD's Zen 4-based Ryzen 7000 processors have attractive performance, but their value proposition is questionable. That's due to the cost of entry: you need speedy DDR5 memory for the best performance, and the available X670 motherboards aren't cheap. Inexpensive B650-based boards are on the way, with AMD holding a... Read more...
NVIDIA's Hopper GPU isn't coming to a graphics card near you. Despite being called a "GPU", it's really a compute accelerator meant for supercomputers and massive workstations. The chip was announced by NVIDIA way back in March, but it only recently entered full production, and the first parts from the family have yet... Read more...
That picture above will probably be familiar to anyone who's purchased a K-series Intel 12th-generation "Alder Lake" CPU—or anyone who reads news about them on this site. That's the box for the current-generation overclockable Intel CPUs. The box for Intel's next-gen CPUs has leaked, though, and you can see it... Read more...
It's only been a few days since some interesting GTA VI gameplay was leaked. The leak, which was authenticated by Rockstar Games, confirmed the location to be Vice City, and that there would be male and female protagonists. Some eagle-eyed viewers noticed something about GTA Online, though. What they found was an art... Read more...
When AMD announced its Zen 4-based Ryzen 7000 processors in August, it announced a peak clock rate of 5.7 GHz for the top-end, 16-core Ryzen 9 7950X model. That CPU is expected to boost to 5.85 GHz under Precision Boost Overdrive, but that's only on two cores. Even 5.7 GHz is well above the all-core clock speed, but... Read more...
It seems like regular leaker Raichu (@OneRaichu on Twitter) has gotten his little Pokémon paws on a pair (at least) of pre-release processors from both Intel and AMD. With the hardware in hand, he did what any proper enthusiast would do, and benchmarked them against each other. However, these benchmarks aren't just... Read more...
Microsoft has gone through several generations of Surface Laptops, some of which have been quite powerful machines. However, none of them have been explicitly tuned for gaming. That could change at the company's upcoming Surface unveiling later this month. A new leak purports to show the specs of Microsoft's Surface... Read more...
Intel sells a variety of processors with myriad letters stuck to the end. You're probably familiar with the K-series overclockable CPUs, but what about the -T SKUs? These chips have lower power limits and clock rates, and typically don't see a lot of leaks because they aren't usually as interesting to enthusiasts... Read more...
It's real fun to look at leaks of the RTX 4090 and its ludicrous graphics-processing prowess, but the unfortunate reality is that most of us simply do not have $1500 or more to lay out on a graphics card. The majority of us are going to be chomping at the bit for the lower-tier GPUs, so leaks about those are arguably... Read more...
Are you getting weary of endless pre-release CPU benchmark leaks? We've seen numerous results from AMD's incoming Ryzen 7000 series processors, and we've seen several from Intel's next-gen Raptor Lake processors, too. What we haven't seen yet are legitimate GPU leaks of AMD or NVIDIA's new hardware—at least, until... Read more...
Anyone who's done much overclocking will well know that efficient cooling is as much (or more) about the amount of airflow you have as it is the size of your radiator. That holds true for GPUs as well as CPUs, which is why we see graphics cards with massive triple-fan coolers. NVIDIA clearly knows this too, at least... Read more...
Power limits are going up and microprocessors are getting hotter. This is happening across the industry, and it's generally accepted to be the consequence of pushing performance ever higher despite gains from new fabrication processes becoming thinner and thinner. Rumor has it that AMD's next-generation Zen 4-based... Read more...
Reading that headline, you're probably already thinking: "5.2 GHz? Isn't that a lower speed than previous leaks?" Yes, it absolutely is, but there's a reason for it: the leaker is comparing the CPU directly against Intel's previous-generation Alder Lake Core i9-12900K at that same clock rate. The tests come from a... Read more...
The current expectation in the hardware enthusiast community is that AMD and Intel's next-generation flagship chips are going to be scant percentage points away from each other in the most common benchmarks. That's informed by a number of leaks, including the Geekbench comparison last week as well as this latest leak... Read more...
As AMD has been proudly trumpeting, the just-announced Ryzen 7000 series processors will be the first desktop processors to be fabricated using TSMC's 5N process. These will be the densest pieces of silicon to sit under a fat finstack to date. That means they're probably going to run very hot. As it happens, though... Read more...
Ah, Geekbench. While the benchmark app is occasionally controversial—particularly where comparisons against Apple hardware are involved—it makes for a reasonably solid benchmark with consistent and relevant results, within the same platform. AMD just announced its new line-up of Ryzen 7000 series CPUs and the Ryzen 9... Read more...
Most discussions about Intel's Raptor Lake revolve around the top-end processors and their extreme power consumption, particularly under the rumored "Extreme Performance" mode. Given this emphasis, you might reasonably be concerned about the performance we can expect out of a lower-power Raptor Lake processor. The... Read more...
We probably don't have to explain to you, dear reader, that final retail pricing is one of the most important factors in determining the value of a product. As such, it is one of the primary factors we consider when reviewing hardware. We already saw some early price listings for AMD's next-gen hardware, but now we've... Read more...
For a CPU series as close to launch as the Ryzen 7000 series supposedly is, we've seen scant few leaked benchmarks. We saw a couple of leaks for the six-core Ryzen 5 7600X model, and we also saw a Geekbench result for the Zen 4-based EPYC "Genoa" processor, but our first leaked benchmark result for the Ryzen 7 7700X...
