AMD's current-generation Ryzen 7000 desktop processors came out in September of 2022. That's over 16 months ago. Intel's gearing up to launch its own Arrow Lake second-generation tiled processors on the desktop, and naturally, AMD is readying its competitor: the Zen 5 architecture and the CPUs bearing it, likely to be...

We've thought for a while about doing a post rounding up all the current leaks and rumors about AMD's upcoming Zen 5 processors, because there's quite a bit of information out there. Well, we don't have to compile the information ourselves anymore, it turns out, because YouTuber High Yield has already done the work... Read more...
AMD's next desktop processor release will be based on the Hawk Point silicon originally intended for mobile machines including laptops, tablets, and handheld gaming consoles. The Ryzen 8000G family, despite the incremented model number, is still based on the Zen 4 CPU architecture, just with the addition of RDNA3... Read more...
If you're a regular HotHardware reader, we probably don't have to explain to you that Intel's new Core Ultra processors launching today were codenamed Meteor Lake, and that they represent not only Intel's first "disaggregated" consumer CPUs built from disparate tiles, but also the debut of Intel's "Intel 4" process...

Technological autonomy has been a priority for China in recent years, partly because the country can't import cutting-edge chips thanks to US sanctions, and also because being self-sufficient is popular policy. At the forefront of China's native CPU industry is Loongson, which has at last released its much-anticipated... Read more...
As PC hardware enthusiasts, we talk about code names a lot. Stuff like "Raptor Lake" and "Bergamo" are technically internal names that aren't really supposed to be used in an official context. Intel, for example, would prefer that we say "13th-Generation Intel Core Processor" and AMD would like to read "AMD EPYC... Read more...
AMD continues to chip away at Intel's dominant lead in x86 CPU market share with a round of gains across the board, including desktop PCs, laptops, and servers, according to the latest audit performed by Mercury Research and shared by AMD. The updated figures cap off an impressive year for AMD, which looks to end 2023... Read more...
Most of AMD's upcoming Ryzen 8000 series processors will be based on the company's next-generation Zen 5 processor architecture, and that's a big deal because by all accounts, Zen 5 is going to be a major redesign of the Zen CPU core. Earlier leaks have put Zen 5 down for a 10-15% IPC increase, but the most... Read more...
Believe it or not, it's already been over a year since AMD released its desktop Ryzen 7000 series processors based on Zen 4, along with its socket AM5 platform that it plans to support through at least 2026 (AMD initially said through 2025, then later extended its commitment). What that all means is it's not too early... Read more...
There has been a lot of talk about Arm encroaching onto x86 territory (more so than it already has), especially on the heels of Qualcomm unveiling its Snapdragon X Elite platform, which is perhaps the biggest threat to x86's dominance to date. Don't tell that Intel CEO Pat Gelsinger, though. While addressing Intel's... Read more...
A Geekbench 5 benchmark listing has appeared, revealing the existence of a new Zen 4 Storm Peak Ryzen Threadripper Pro CPU known as the 7995WX. The specs do not disappoint, apparently this new chip will have a whopping 96 Zen 4 cores and a blisteringly high 5.1GHz single core turbo frequency. The benchmarking results... Read more...
AMD and Intel have rather similar mobile strategies at this point. Both companies ship two types of laptop CPUslarger chips, marked "HX", which are based on silicon that is also used for desktop CPUs, and then smaller processors that are specifically intended for mobile usage. These are typically marked H, HS, P, or... Read more...
A leaked document has reportedly revealed key specifications for AMDs upcoming Ryzen 8000 desktop CPU lineup, codenamed Granite Ridge. The most noteworthy specs include a core count range between six and 16 cores for the entire CPU lineup, the use of AMDs Zen 5 CPU architecture, and the use of TSMCs N3E or N3P... Read more...
If you're just joining us, the actual silicon that will comprise Intel's 14th-generation processors has been in question for a while now. Leaked roadmaps have indicated that Intel has both disaggregated Meteor Lake processors on the way, as well as a refresh of its extant Raptor Lake processors. It's been theorized... Read more...
Jim Keller's been getting around in the last decade or so. Back in the early 00s, he was critical to the development of the Athlon 64 at AMD, and in more recent years, he's been at Apple, Tesla, Intel, and AMD again before joining AI-focused chip creator Tenstorrent where he has quickly become CEO. Every... Read more...
Can you believe that the Ryzen 9 7900X3D and Ryzen 9 7950X3D have already been out a month? Yes, indeedthe launch date for the eight-core Ryzen 7 7800X3D, arguably the most exciting member of its family, is just nine days away now. What seemed like an eternity last month now seems all too soon, although we suppose... Read more...
If you talk to Intel, the company will tell you its roadmap remains on track to launch Meteor Lake and Arrow Lake this year and next, followed by Lunar Lake, an all-new and ultra-low power architecture built specifically for mobile. Unofficially, however, there have been rumors pointing to Meteor Lake skipping the... Read more...
Once upon a time, there was a clear division between typical desktop computers and servers. With Nehalem in 2008, Intel really put the pedal to the metal in the "big iron" enterprise and high-performance computing space, and it soon brought some of those server technologies to the desktop in the form of its "High-End...

According to a prominent leaks-centric TechTuber, Intels 15th Gen Core Arrow Lake processors are going to deliver a 45% IPC (instructions per clock) upgrade compared to the groundbreaking and still popular Alder Lake family. It sounds like a monster leap, which may be easy to feel cynical about, but perhaps we... Read more...
AMD's fifth-generation desktop Ryzen CPUs aren't even out yet, but they're already setting performance records. If you missed it, check our post yesterday where we talked about some crazy overclocking and insane benchmark results from AMD's pre-release processors. Those results came about with "standard"...

Intels CEO has posted a Tweet celebrating what would be a very special occasion for anyonethe receiving of an Arc A770 graphics card. Intel Graphics chief Raja Koduri delivered the svelte flagship accelerator to Pat Gelsinger on Sunday evening and posted his own tweet of the surprise delivery event shortly after his... Read more...
It seems like regular leaker Raichu (@OneRaichu on Twitter) has gotten his little Pokmon 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...
