One thing we've learned over the past year is to never take anything for granted. So yes, while it is generally assumed NVIDIA will release its next-gen GeForce RTX 4000 series in 2022, we wouldn't exactly be shocked if those plans changed. It doesn't look like they will, thoughrumor has it factories have already... Read more...
Judging by the way many people talk about them, it seems like a large contingent of folks don't realize that 12th-generation Intel Coredesktop processorsbased onAlder Lakehave actually been released. They're out there; you can go buy them right now, along with compatible motherboards and premium-priced (at least for... Read more...
Windows 11 hit the ground running last weekor maybe stumbling, at least on AMD Ryzen-based systems. As we reported at the release of the new operating system, CPUs based on AMD's Zen architecture are seeing drastically-worsened L3 cache latency under Windows 11. Yesterday was the first "patch Tuesday" for Microsoft's... Read more...
Perhaps the final frontier for Zen 3 is AMD's eventual Threadripper lineup of high end desktop (HEDT) chips. It just depends on which come out first, next-gen Threadripper chips, or refreshed Zen 3 processors in the mainstream segment with stacked 3D v-cache. While we are waiting to find out, a couple of Threadripper... Read more...
The global shortage of silicon is not preventing tech companies from continuing to innovate, and traveling down their respected roadmaps (ETAs just might need to be adjusted on occasion). We bring this up because a prominent leaker has already begun discussing supposed details related to AMD's eventual fourth... Read more...
AMD has been somewhat aggressive in pushing more cores and threads into the consumer segment. As it stands, the technically 'mainstream' Ryzen 9 5950X serves up a generous 16 cores and 32 threads, which not too long ago was the exclusive domain of high end desktop (HEDT) silicon like Threadripper and server silicon...

The next generation of Intel's Xeon Scalable processors codenamed Sapphire Rapids will feature high bandwidth memory (HBM), the company confirmed at the 2021 International Supercomputing Conference (ISC). This is intended to provide "a dramatic boost in memory bandwidth," as well as offer a "significant" jump in high... Read more...
The second half of this year and especially 2022 are going to be exciting times, with all kinds of product launches on tap. Intel will be releasing its first discrete graphics card for gaming (Xe-HPG DG2), and both AMD and Intel are readying new platforms, with eventual support for next-gen technologies like DDR5...

AMD made quite the splash during its keynote at Computex 2021. In addition to launching a new Radeon RX 6000M mobile series based on its RDNA 2 graphics architecture, the biggest surprise came in regards to its processors, and not just what it had to say about Zen 4. AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su revealed a new stacked 3D... Read more...
It was a little over a year ago when AMD somewhat casually mentioned a new X3D packaging scheme that combines chiplets featuring a hybrid 2.5D and 3D die stacking design, and now rumor has it this could be what underpins a specialized server CPU codenamed Milan-X. The rumor also suggests it could be arriving... Read more...
Hey, have you heard, Intel is launching a hybrid CPU architecture later this year, called Alder Lake. Of course you have, because Alder Lake is not a secretIntel's already talked about it a few times, albeit in very small doses. Official details are still several months away, presumably, but leaks and rumors offer up... Read more...
Past leaks have suggested that Intel's upcoming 4th Gen Xeon Scalable server processors codenamed Sapphire Rapids will flex up to 56 cores and 112 threads of big iron, but maybe an even bigger flex is in store. A user who got their hands on a supposed Sapphire Rapids engineering sample did onlookers a solid by peeling... Read more...
AMD has not yet released its fourth generation EPYC "Milan" server processors based on its Zen 3 CPU architecture, but barring any last minute snags, those chips are coming any day now. Looking further down the road, a new leak highlights a possible fourth generation EPYC "Genoa" configuration based on Zen 4, with... Read more...
Intel is set to close out its era of 14-nanometer manufacturing with Rocket Lake, due out at the end of next month (barring any last minute delays). After that, the focus will shift to Alder Lake, a hybrid CPU design that figures to be one of the Intel's more interesting launches, for a number of reasons. While Alder... Read more...
It may seem premature to start discussing AMD's next-generation Radeon DNA (RDNA 3) graphics architecture when RDNA 2 parts have barely penetrated the market. Be that as it may, the web is tangled with rumors, leaked information, and juicy nuggets of information. Of particular interest is the supposed makeup of Navi... Read more...
While they often arent as great as CPUs on their own, FPGAs can do a wonderful job accelerating specific tasks. Whether it's accelerating acting as a fabric for wide-scale datacenter services boosting AI performance, an FPGA in the hands of a capable engineer can offload a wide variety of tasks from a CPU and speed...

Today is not just any ordinary Tuesday. Nope, no siree, it sure is not. It is very different from almost every other Tuesday in the past several years, and do you know why? Simplewe have not one, but two upcoming Intel CPU cameos that have appeared on the web! I know, I know, today is special for another reasonit's... Read more...
Most of the focus in the PC space recently has been on new graphics card, with NVIDIA launching its GeForce RTX 30 series and AMD prepping its upcoming Big Navi release. But what about CPUs? As AMD has said time again, Zen 3 is on track to launch this year. And if the latest rumor is true, one of the upcoming CPU... Read more...
This has been a rough couple of weeks for Intel. First, it got leapfrogged by NVIDIA as the most valuable chipmaker in the US, then as part of its second quarter earnings report, Intel divulged that a defect in its 7-nanometer manufacturing has resulted in another six-month delay (and we won't see 10nm desktop chips...

This is shaping up to be an exciting year in graphics. AMD is planning to launch a beefier version of Navi with support for real-time ray tracing, NVIDIA has its Ampere GPUs on the horizon, and Intel will assert itself back into the discrete GPU space for the first time since it shelved Larrabee a decade ago. Out of... Read more...
Like most people in tech, we have oh-so-many questions about Intel's discrete GPU efforts, and if things stay on track, we will get some official answers sometime this year. Until then, we're left to nibble on little nuggets Intel shares here and there, and scour the rumor mill for scraps of information. As it... Read more...
Experiencing strong demand for your products isn't inherently a bad thing, as we're certain that most high-volume companies would love to see products flying off the shelves while the revenue comes pouring in. However, it can become a big problem when your manufacturing capacity can't keep up with that insatiable... Read more...
