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...
It's been several days since Google began rolling out an important security update for its Chrome browser, but even so, there's no guarantee that it's been applied on your system yet. Given the acknowledgement that the patched flaw is one that is actively being exploited in the wild, you'd be well served to manually... Read more...

Intel's processors include hardware to help with monitoring their own performance. Unsurprisingly, these are known as "Performance Monitoring Units" (PMU). The company releases JSON files that map the raw data provided by the PMUs to human-readable events and has already released one for its 14th-generation Meteor... Read more...
If it seems like an immense proportion of the news we cover lately comprises leaks and rumors for upcoming hardware, that's because it does. There is so much new hardware on the way from AMD, NVIDIA, Intel, and many other vendors. Of course, our focus is on PC hardware and adjacent technologies, so naturally it's the... Read more...

The overarching goals of these latest additions to Arm's product stack is to optimize visual experiences and supercharge mobile experiences, as part of what the company is billing as a Total Compute Solutions portfolio. In some... Read more...
Whatever your feelings on the modern Chinese state, you have to admit that it's reasonable for the country to want to achieve technological independence. Whether it's reasonable to think that the country could actually achieve such a thing is arguable, but it's looking more and more likely by the day. The latest... Read more...
At today's Financial Analyst Day, AMD revealed several tidbits of information about its forthcoming technologies and products roadmap, and the company also confirmed a few details that rumor-mongers have been reporting for months now. We're going to go over the company's announcements in the server space in future... Read more...
We've said before that AMD really hit its stride with Zen 3. The Zen architecture as a whole put AMD back in the enthusiast discussion in a big way, and it has continued to make improvements at the silicon level. That is set to continue with Zen 4 due out later this year, and rumor has it the next-gen architecture... Read more...
Enthusiasts, power users, and professionals in need of more compute muscle have been patiently awaiting another round of Threadripper. The wait is now overAMD today unveiled its Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5000 WX series, a burly stack of high-end desktop (HEDT) chips based on its Zen 3 architecture built to accelerate... Read more...
If you wait long enough, your software programs, utilities, and operating system will all take the initiative to apply any applicable updates, depending on how you have things configured. Even if you rely on automatic updates, though, sometimes you should still take matters into your own hands. Such is the case now if... Read more...
Never mind that Alder Lake is just now beginning to get its feet wet in the consumer space, it's never too early to look at what is next. And what is next (barring a surprise shift in Intel's roadmap) is Raptor Lake. Perhaps suggesting that everything is on track for a 13th Gen Core processor launch next year, a... Read more...
AMD was very upfront about the fact that its stacked 3D V-cache was headed to its current-generation Ryzen 5000 series in an upcoming refresh, it just has not divulged exactly when that will happen. It could be very soon, if the latest rumor turns out to be true. As in, an announcement could come in January, followed... Read more...
It seems a little funny to already be talking about Raptor Lake when Alder Lake has only just arrived to retail. But that's how the beat of the technology drum goes. So what do we know about Raptor Lake? It's expected to be a less dramatic architectural upgrade next round, and will in all likelihood even retain... Read more...
We will know in short order if, as numerous leaks have suggested, Intel's Alder Lake is the new belle of the ball. Fortunately for AMD, the company is in a good place these days, and has no plans of exiting the CPU dance. To the contrary, it will be rolling out refreshed Zen 3 chips early next year, followed by its... Read more...
AMD is quickly approaching five years of its Zen architecture being out on the market, with the original set of Ryzen processors having launched to retail in February 2017. It's been one heck of a five-year run for sure. In celebration of Zen's five-year anniversary, AMD's Robert Hallock, director of technical... Read more...
HP seems to have tipped AMD's hand, in regards to a new processor launch that is perhaps coming sooner than later. That would be the Ryzen 7000 series, assuming a new listing on HP's website is accurate. The listing is for a pair of all-in-one desktops: 24-inch and 27-inch models in Starry White and Starry Forest, but... Read more...
As we highlighted in our Radeon RX 6900 XT review, AMD's flagship graphics card is worthy of the designation, coming within striking distance of NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 3090 in traditional rasterization (the gap widens in ray-traced gaming) at a lower MSRP. So it would be quite remarkable if, as some alleged... Read more...
The Zen 3 family of Ryzen 5000 processors have been on the market for roughly a year, and Intel's 12th generation Alder Lake processors are quickly breathing down AMD's neck. But where AMD goes from here is not as simple as moving to Zen 4 architecture and calling it a day. Instead, AMD is taking a multi-pronged... Read more...
AMD's not-yet-released (or even announced) Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5995WX processor continues to make unofficial appearances on the web. Last week the chip found its way to a distributing computing project's database (MilkyWay@home), and now it is flashing its pro-tuned heavy metal in a handful of benchmark... Read more...
