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...

Having trouble deciding between DDR5 or DDR4 memory for your Alder Lake desktop build? You're not alone—this motherboard can't decide either. It actually rocks DIMM slots for both types of RAM, and as far as we are aware, it's the only socket LGA 1700 motherboard to swing both ways. This raises the question of what... Read more...
Intel today has extended its vPro platform into its 12th Gen mobile and desktop CPU lineup based on Alder Lake, and with the expansion comes some new features and additional segmentation for different size businesses and enterprise clients. As it pertains to the latter, Intel added a couple of new tiers, including... Read more...
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. There have been many other instructions for other purposes, but arguably the most important additions to the ISA... Read more...
We know it's only a matter of time before Intel brings its Alder Lake architecture over to its Xeon stack. As we wait, a leaked blocked diagram may reveal an interesting change in how Intel will go about positioning and marketing its next round of server CPUs. It also provides details about the rich set of features... Read more...
There are multiple ways you can go about chasing lower CPU temps. Adding more fans and periodically cleaning the dust filters can go a long way. So can reapplying the thermal paste, or swapping out your CPU cooling solution for something that packs more punch, perhaps a liquid cooling setup. All good options, or you... Read more...
Samsung is expanding its laptop line with an upgraded and expanded family of Galaxy Book 2 models, including the Galaxy Book 2 Pro, Galaxy Book 2 Pro 360, and Galaxy Book 2 360. There are five main SKUs spread across the three refreshed product lines, each built to Intel's latest Evo certification with 12th Gen Core... Read more...
After mainly focusing on its high performance Alder Lake-H processors in the mobile space for its CES unveil last month, Intel today is giving its Alder Lake-P and Alder Lake-U lineups an official launch. The product stack spans 20 chips high and includes low and ultra-low power mobile CPUs for the next generation of... Read more...
Alright, so—remember how Intel's LGA 1700 sockets seem to be bending CPU heatspreaders, causing reduced cooling performance? We told you about it back when we talked about how AMD's socket AM5 seems specifically designed to avoid this particular problem by screwing the CPU retention bracket directly through the board...

When it rains, it pours, eh? Finding a graphics card in stock and near its MSRP has been a near-impossible mission for way too many months now. High powered gaming laptops, on the other hand, have been more plentiful, or at least that was the case. Going forward, increasing supply chain issues could make those scarce... Read more...
It's pretty amazing the level of firepower that company's can pack into a small form factor (SFF) machine. Intel's enthusiast-grade Next Unit of Computing (NUC) PCs have really highlighted this, as we saw in our NUC 11 Extreme 'Beast Canyon' review last December. An even faster iteration is apparently just around the... Read more...
The land of luxury of motherboards is paved with premium features for enthusiasts, and like a penthouse apartment, there's a higher cost of living to match. In this case, you're looking at $829.99 for EVGA's flagship Z690 Dark Kingpin, a decked out motherboard loaded with bells and whistles for your Alder Lake... Read more...
Windows 11 and Alder Lake are supposed to go pair well like cheese and wine or peanut butter and jelly. And they do, thanks to efforts by both Intel and Microsoft to ensure Alder Lake's hybrid architecture and Thread Director feature are fully utilized in the OS. But guess what? A recent update to the Linux kernel... Read more...
If you're reading Hot Hardware, then we probably don't have to explain that Intel's 12th-generation Core CPUs, codenamed Alder Lake, typically come equipped with a pack of Performance cores and a cluster of Efficient cores. Some lower-end CPUs omit the E-cores leaving you with a four- or six-core CPU that looks a lot... Read more...
Hetereogeneous computing is nothing new, of course, but typically it has been one type of CPU core and one type of GPU, along with media processing blocks and other small functional units -- at least on desktop and notebooks systems. Intel's Alder Lake CPUs are the first x86-64 processors to embrace a hybrid paradigm... Read more...
There are a lot more DDR5 memory kits to choose from now than when Alder Lake first launch, but you'll still pay handsomely for most of the more intriguing options. A quick check on Newegg, for example, shows 32GB DDR5 kits starting at around $310 to over $600—yikes! Should laptop DDR5 memory prove more affordable... Read more...
You don't actually need to be a god (or like a god) to own MSI's new flagship motherboard, the MEG Z690 Godlike (the same that appeared in a photo shoot two months ago), but you will have summon a large bag of cash. Going all out on this bad boy will set you back a cool $2,099. However, that's really a bundle price... Read more...
We can't say which came first, the chicken or the egg. But in the realm of server hardware, next-generation motherboards based on Intel's unannounced X680 chipset are landing ahead of next-gen Xeon CPU hardware based on Alder Lake. We've seen at least two retail sites in Europe offering multiple Supermicro W680... Read more...
As contentious as the topic is among certain enthusiasts, for the most part, the presence or absence of 512-bit-wide vectors in Intel's desktop CPUs is a largely academic consideration. Very little software makes use of AVX-512. Certainly there's not much that Intel expects purchasers of its mainline desktop and... Read more...
Intel is releasing a "Special Edition" 12th Gen Core i9-12900KS processor based on its Alder Lake architecture, which ranks as only the second KS chip in the past couple of years (the other one being the 9th Gen Core i9-9900KS we reviewed in October 2019). It's a fast slice of silicon and while not available to buy... Read more...
Premium laptops have been getting thinner and lighter over the years, and one reason why is the removal of chunky ports. The svelte MacBook Air, for example, rocks just a pair of Thunderbolt / USB4 ports and a 3.5mm headphone jack—no USB Type-A or Ethernet ports. Craob says 'Hold my beer' and is introducing what it...

EVGA might be best known for its graphics cards, but it is getting ready to offer a bodacious prebuilt PC dressed to the nines in high-end hardware, and packaged in one of the most unique cases we have ever seen. Actually, we probably shouldn't even call it a case—it's a carbon fiber frame with a cable suspension... Read more...
