Alder Lake and benchmark leaks have gone hand-in-hand, and that continues to be the case now that Intel has launched its initial batch of 12th Gen Core processors. The leaks keep coming because there are more Alder Lake CPUs on the horizon, both on the desktop and the first mobile/laptop parts. Regarding the latter, a Core i7-12700H has for the first time been spotted in a Cinebench benchmark leak. We have seen this chip make unofficial appearances before, including recently—just last week we highlighted a Geekbench entry in which the Core i7-12700H hitched a ride with a Gigabyte Aorus 5 XE laptop and proceeded to crush the competition in multi-core performance. This latest benchmark leak... Read more...
It's no secret that Razer has been working on an AMD Ryzen-powered Blade laptop, as we're seen multiple leaks over the past few months. Razer confirmed everyone's suspicions this week at E3 2021 with the launch of the Blade 14, which it bills as the world's most powerful 14-inch-class gaming laptop. As noted in our earlier reporting, the Blade 14 is powered by an 8-core/16-thread Ryzen 9 5900HX processor based on AMD's latest Zen 3 architecture. While the Ryzen 9 5900HX (which can boost up to 4.6GHz) has its own integrated Radeon Vega 8-based GPU, gamers don't give a hoot about that; they're more interested in potent discrete graphics solutions. To that end, Razer is giving customers the choice... Read more...
AMD is finally getting ready to counter NVIDIA's mobile GeForce RTX 30 series with a new generation of mobile GPUs of its own, and namely the Radeon RX 6000M family. The expectation is that AMD will make a formal announcement at Computex. Whether that is the case or not, however, some leaked retailer listings leave little doubt a launch is imminent. In particular, an upcoming gaming laptop from ASUS that has gone all-in with AMD's latest generation hardware is making the rounds. It is the ASUS ROG G513QY-HF002T, and according to a listing at Microaid, a retailer in Ireland, the laptop will be in stock on June 9, 2021. As configured, the asking price is €1,947.44, which is around $2,375 in... Read more...
We have some good news in store for folks out there firmly in the AMD camp concerning gaming hardware. ASUS is reportedly developing a version of its incoming 2021 ROG Strix G15 gaming laptop that will feature AMD's brawny Ryzen 9 5900HX Zen 3 APU and the unannounced Radeon RX 6800M processor. The Ryzen 9 5900HX is an 8-core/16-thread mobile Zen 3 processor with a base clock of 3.3GHz and a boost clock of up to 4.6GHz. While it has a default TDP of 45 watts, it can be configured by a laptop OEM from as low as 35 watts to as high as 54 watts. It also includes an integrated Radeon Vega 8 GPU for low-end gaming laptops that forgo discrete graphics to save board space and promote power efficiency.... Read more...
When it comes to OEM system builders, AMD has been a bit like Rodney Dangerfield, in that it sometimes can't "get no respect," to quote the former comedian (RIP). The company's Zen architecture has been a game changer, though, especially its latest generation Zen 3 CPUs. They are so enticing, there is a rumor Razer will launch its first AMD-based gaming laptop. Up to this point, Razer has exclusively sharpened its Blade laptops with Intel's silicon. Available in 13-inch, 15-inch, and 17-inch variants, each current model sports an Intel Core processor, with Comet Lake, Ice Lake, and Tiger Lake CPU options. But what you won't find among any of Razer's laptop models is an AMD processor. Not yet,... Read more...
AMD and Intel are sitting pretty on Zen 3 and Comet Lake, respectively, but neither architecture represents the end game for either company. More chips are on the horizon, both on the desktop and in mobile. As it pertains to upcoming processor launches, there is a bevy of leaks to digest, including an Intel Rocket Lake-S desktop CPU and several AMD Ryzen 5000H mobile processors. Starting with Rocket Lake-S, this is the architecture that will debut next year and the first from Intel to bring PCI Express 4.0 support to the desktop. Intel is claiming double-digit gains in instructions per clock (IPC) performance over Comet Lake. Incidentally, these next-gen CPUs will still be leveraging Intel's... Read more...
There is an interesting development in the land of leaks, which pertains to AMD's upcoming mobile Ryzen 5000 series. I emphasize "mobile" because AMD has already launched its desktop Ryzen 5000 series, based on its Zen 3 CPU architecture. Zen 3 will eventually find its way to laptops, and over at Geekbench (where else?), there is a new entry for a never-before referenced Ryzen 9 5900HX SKU. What makes this latest entry so curious is not the fact that it is an unreleased mobile part—there have been several leaks of those already. However, the "HX" suffix is new one to us, and one plausible explanation is that it refers to an unlocked multiplier, for enthusiast and gaming laptops with overclocking... Read more...
