Typically, when a graphics card launches with two memory configs, they're fundamentally the same, just with different memory densities. That's the case with the GTX 580 3GB, the RX 580 8GB, and the rare GTX 960 4GB. That's not the case with the two models of the RTX 3080, and it looks like the RTX 4080 could launch in... Read more...

NVIDIA obviously has to nail down the specifications of its graphics card SKUs well before launch, but it seems like the company may not have decided on the final configuration of the GeForce RTX 4070. That's according to regular leaker kopite7kimi, whose latest data suggests two different possible setups for the... Read more...
Welcome back, friends, to the show that never ends: a quick peek at the latest GPU leaks. As usual for this generation, this one comes courtesy of kopite7kimi who is tweeting about a specific NVIDIA Ada GPU product with the SKU of either "PG136-SKU360" or "PG139-SKU360". The famed leaker remarks that this model is... Read more...
Intel would obviously love it if your next PC paired one of its Core processors with an Arc-powered graphics card, like the Arc A750 or A770 (neither of which is actually available yet, but should be soon). That doesn't mean it's going to shun support for AMD's platforms with its GPUs, though. That would be ludicrous... Read more...
Alright, alright, I already know what you're thinkingyou don't care what the new GPUs look like as long as they perform. The thing is, looking at these renders actually can give us some perspective on what to expect from each of AMD's next-gen Radeon GPUs. Created by Wild_C (@_wildc on Twitter) based on leaks...

Do you remember last year when Chinese crypto-miners were snatching up GeForce RTX 30-series laptops to use their GPUs for mining? The mobile GPUs never got a hash rate limitation, unlike the desktop models, so desperate miners started propping up piles of laptops and pointing fans at them to make them mine... Read more...
Video games are all violent, right? They're always about big, burly, buff men stomping around battlefields shooting at bad guys or monsters with ridiculously-oversized guns. Or if they're not about that, then they're about impossibly-proportioned buxom babes flouncing around fantasy fields, firing off fireballs or... Read more...
Intel's expected to follow up its extant 12th-generation Core processors (codenamed "Alder Lake") with the 13th-generation chips known as "Raptor Lake." Those CPUs, which will feature extra cache, P-core revisions, additional E-cores, and other relatively minor enhancements, are probably going to show up toward the... Read more...
Synthetic benchmarks get a bad rap. Sure, they're not always representative of real application performance -- that much is inarguable. They're still extremely useful, though. Not only can they help developers pinpoint performance problems for specific troubleshooting, but they also can help users confirm that their... Read more...
Over the last few generations of its mainstream desktop processors, Intel has released “Special Edition” models, which are functionally similar to that generation’s flagship CPU, but with goosed clock speeds to boost performance. The same is true of the Alder Lake-based 12th Gen Core processors. When... Read more...
If that headline leaves you wondering what Phoenix and Dragon Range are, let's get you up to speed first. Phoenix, apparently also known as Phoenix Point (not to be confused with the game of the same name), is the codename for AMD's future mobile CPUs based on the Zen 4 architecture. They'll include Zen 4 CPU cores... Read more...
In case you missed it, Intel this week released its first desktop Arc Alchemist graphics card, officially launching the A380 in China with a promise to "expand globally during the summer." Intel also posted an online quick start guide with a curious listing under the system requirements sectionit calls for a 12th Gen... Read more...
Intel Arc desktop graphics cards are real, and you can actually buy oneif you're in China, and have a need for entry-level discrete GPU. The specific model Intel is making available at this time is the Arc A380, which will probably be the fastest option in the "A300" series of Alchemist graphics cards. Since this... Read more...
While it's only been about six months since Apple introduced the M1 Pro and M1 Max SoCs that would power the 16-inch and 14-inch MacBook Pro, the architecture within those chips can trace its roots back another full year to the dawn of Apple Silicon in the Mac mini's M1 processor. This is when Cupertino left Intel... Read more...
Hardware enthusiasts of a certain vintage will become misty-eyed and nostalgic when they hear the word "Mendocino." That might be exactly why AMD picked that codename for its own cut-down, low-cost Ryzen processors. Officially announced at Computex and intended for applications where cost is the most important factor... Read more...
As far as we know for sure, Intel's Arc graphics parts based on the Alchemist architecture will come in fundamentally two formsa smaller die with up to 128 EUs, and a bigger die with up to 512 EUs. Obviously, indivdual SKUs will vary on the number of active functional elements, but aside from one curious oddity in the Linux source pointing Read more...
We've been hearing leaks and rumors about the next generation of Radeons since before the current generation even came out. Sometimes it's hard to differentiate between leaks and rumors, but as we get closer to the launch, information is becoming more and more concrete. So it goes, and as it happens, some of the...
