It turns out Intel wasn't finished fleshing out its Alder Lake family. Introduced during the Intel Vision event earlier this weak, the 12th Gen Core Alder Lake-HX lineup brings more desktop goodness to a handful of high-performance mobile SKUs, such as support for up to 128GB of DDR5 memory and PCI Express 5.0. It's... Read more...

Dell is rolling out updated and "reimagined" Precision and Latitude laptops sporting thinner and lighter profiles, intelligent features, and improved security. There are three new core additions in all—Latitude 9330, Latitude 7670, and Latitude 7770—all of which are built for the "future of hybrid work." What exactly... Read more...
In person events are starting to return and attending PAX East 2022 over the weekend reminded us how much we've missed them. Maybe not in their entirety—the hustle and bustle can be a bit much—but as far as PAX East goes, it was great to see so many gaming PCs on display. This was most evident over at Intel's massive...

Give credit to Corsair, it isn’t letting Origin PC sit idle after acquiring the boutique PC builder just shy of three years ago.

If you don't pay close attention to the enthusiast PC building and overclocking scene, you may not be aware that Intel's LGA 1700 socket used by its 12th-generation Alder Lake CPUs has a small-but-significant design quirk. You see, unlike previous Intel LGA CPU sockets going back all the way to LGA 775, the LGA 1700... Read more...
Intel's latest generation Alder Lake processors haven't even had time to fully stretch their legs yet, but even so leaks are already starting to point towards what comes next: 13th Gen Raptor Lake.

One of the neater showcases at the Consumer Electronics Show earlier this year was a delightfully themed  thin and light laptop from ASUS to commemorate sending a much thicker notebook into space 25 years prior. Now three months later, the ASUS Zenbook 14X OLED Space Edition (UX5401) that had us drooling during CES... Read more...
Samsung made a splash recently as one of the first laptop manufacturers with a Spring refresh powered by Intel's new Alder Lake-P 12th Gen Core processors for mainstream thin and light laptops. Targeted at a class of machines Intel calls the "Performance Thin And Light" category, these 12th Gen Core chips drop into a 28 Watt power envelope,... Read more...
Even as mainstream consumer processors push out more cores, more threads, and heaps of cache, there is still a market for even more powerful high end desktop (HEDT) silicon. Maybe not a massive market, but enough so that AMD recently unveiled another round of Threadripper processors, and it looks like Intel is getting... Read more...
By most accounts, Intel's 12th Gen Core processors based on the hybrid Alder Lake mobile architecture have been a smashing success for gaming laptops.

For a brief while, it seemed as though Intel had unexpectedly released its binned 12th Gen Core i9-12900KS processor this morning, because Newegg went live with a product listing and was accepting orders for the part. Instead, it looks like the retailer may have jumped the gun. Newegg pulled the listing a couple hours... Read more...
The perfect productivity laptop may not exist, but Dell's XPS lineup often comes close, blending premium build quality with an array of features and fast hardware. We're not being generic in our praise here, either—see our reviews of last year's Dell XPS 17 and XPS 15 for our expanded analysis. These XPS models have... Read more...
Gigabyte today announced the BRIX Extreme, calling it the "most powerful mini PC in the world." That's probably dialing up the marketing hype a notch above where it should be, but bold claim aside, these new BRIX Extreme systems look both attractive (from the renders we've seen) and capable (from the spec sheet and...

It has been quite the busy month for customs authorities in China. In two separate incidents, agents seized thousands of improperly labeled XFX-brand graphics cards worth millions of dollars and 160 Intel Alder Lake processors as multiple individuals seemingly tried to avoid paying custom fees (or, in the case of the...

Ever since the advent of the Multi-Media eXtensions, better known as "MMX," Intel has had a long history of tacking on instruction set extensions to add additional capabilities to its x86-family of CPUs.
