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...
As we wait for Intel to introduce its first modern discrete desktop graphics cards, the leaks and questions are starting to pile up. For example, will Arc Alchemist in flagship form give AMD and NVIDIA a run for their money in the high-end GPU space? What will inventories look like, and what price points are we... Read more...
Intel has been busy as of late promoting and running its Xe HPG Scavenger Hunt, which will award 3,300 prizes with a total estimated value of $430K (including 300 Intel Arc Alchemist GPUs before they even launch). But there is another contest Intel has going that you may not have heard about yet, and it is awarding... Read more...
Several CPU cooler makers are offering LGA 1700 bracket upgrades for existing all-in-one liquid cooling solutions, so users who jump into Alder Lake will have one less expense to worry about (or a nominal one, as Corsair is selling its 'Retrofit Kits' for a small fee). But will they work as good as coolers designed... Read more...
It appears Intel has some very specific branding guidelines for its upcoming Arc graphics launch, starting with Alchemist, according to a leaked document. This is not unusual, but what makes it interesting is that the document, if it turns out to be legitimate, reveals how Intel plans to market and label its Alchemist... Read more...
Make no mistake, Intel is supremely interested in competing at the high end of the gaming graphics card market, and being a viable contender, not just an also-ran. Intel also plans to target the mid-range and entry-level segments as well, the latter of which has been overlooked (so far) by AMD and NVIDIA with their... Read more...
Hey, have you heard? Intel is releasing its first modern discrete graphics card next year! Of course you've heard, because Intel has not kept its high-level plans a secret, not by a long shot. Lower-level details have been a bit tougher to source, though Intel has shared some additional info in recent weeks, and of... Read more...
Nobody can go out and actually buy a graphics card at anywhere close to MSRP right now (not without being luckyGPU street prices are rising again), and that probably will not change in the coming weeks or even months. It stinks, plain and simple. If it comes as any consolation, though, at least the GPU scene is not... Read more...
In a wide ranging interview with a Japanese news outlet, Intel graphics boss Raja Koduri shared some insight into the development of Alchemist, the company's upcoming discrete GPU, and what it has planned. One of the more notable tidbits from the interview was in relation to Intel's add-in board (AIB) partners, and... Read more...
Intel CEO Pat Gelsinger, or as he puts it, the "self-appointed Geek-in-Chief," recently sat down for a video chat with analyst Pierre Ferragu to discuss his growth as a leader and what is in store for the world's largest supplier of semiconductor chips. Gelsinger talked about what he learned during his time at VMWare... Read more...
It seems ASRock is eager for Intel to launch its next-generation Alder Lake processors, and we would venture a guess that so are other motherboard makers. As it applies to ASRock specifically, however, a leaked list of around three dozen models based on various 600-series chipests has found its way to the... Read more...
Frustrated by the global shortage of silicon that is causing cutting edge electronics to almost always be out of stock? You know, things like the latest game consoles (PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S) and discrete graphics cards for gaming. Well, not only could the chip shortage linger through all of next year, but... Read more...
NVIDIA just posted another monster quarter, this time raking in a record $6.51 billion in revenue during Q2, representing a massive 68 percent increase from the same three-month period last year. A significant chunk of that is profitNVIDIA reported net income of $2.37 billion, up 24 percent sequentially and a... Read more...
Alder Lake is not even out yet (soon, though), but that has not stopped the leak train from cruising down the tracks towards what comes after. We are of course talking about Intel's eventual 13th Gen Core processors, otherwise known as Raptor Lake. To that end, some interesting information about Raptor Lake's power... Read more...
There might be a console shortage, but even so, Sony says it is on track to sell more PlayStation 5 systems during its fiscal year ending March 2022, than it did PlayStation 4 consoles during its first fiscal year of availability. More precisely, Sony CFO Hiroki Totoki assured investors that managed to obtain enough... Read more...
Last week Intel launched its 30.0.100.9684 graphics driver, the first official non-beta release for Microsoft's upcoming Windows 11 operating system. Intel's early efforts beat out both NVIDIA and AMD when offering product-quality drivers for current-generation graphics hardware. However, buried within the release notes for the recent driver Read more...
Intel has vowed to aggressively expand its chip manufacturing business, and a huge part of that effort could apparently include buying GlobalFoundries, which was spun off of AMD over a decade ago. It's said Intel is willing to pay around $30 billion if a deal can be hammered out. That would rank as Intel's biggest... Read more...
It's no secret that the United States has lost its dominant position as a hotbed for semiconductor production. The U.S. long ceded the crown to other countries like Taiwan, home to [contract] chip manufacturing giant TSMC. However, U.S. lawmakers finally realize that providing a competitive environment for domestic... Read more...
Some of the world's leading chip makers have warned that the global shortage of silicon could linger into next year and perhaps even beyond, as unprecedented demand and disruptions in production from the pandemic (and other factors) have put the industry in a unique situation. Despite the warnings, at least one... Read more...
We have known since last year that Intel's upcoming Alder Lake-S desktop processors will not only introduce a heterogeneous design similar in concept to Arm's. big.LITTLE approach, but also a new socket. Intel documents revealed early on that Alder Lake-S would leverage an LGA 1700 socket. Otherwise known as Socket V... Read more...
It was just earlier this month that IBM announced an incredible manufacturing breakthrough with its 2-nm manufacturing process that crammed 50 billion transistors into the size of a fingernail. While that's still a future-looking technology that hasn't made it into mass production (and thereby not a solution for our... Read more...
It times of crisis, it is often said that things will get worse before they get better. That does not always hold true, but it sure seems to apply to the global chip shortage, which may not see a full recovery for years. While there is light way at the end of the tunnel, lead times on chip orders have been increasing... Read more...
