It is often said that records are meant to broken, like when Steph Curry overtook Ray Allen to become the NBA's all-time three-point leader last week. Every once in a while, however, records end up in a tie. Such is the case with Cinebench R20. One of the world's top-ranked overclockers, Allen 'Splave' Golibersuch... Read more...
Intel has stepped into the Alder Lake era with the launch of its 12th Gen Core processors, which so far consist of six SKUs (and really three base models, each offered with and without integrated graphics). More models are obviously on the way, and if a fresh rumor is to be believed, one of them could be a specially... Read more...
Intel's 12th-generation Core processors, codenamed "Alder Lake," have already been out for about a month—at least, if you're an enthusiast or power user. If you're looking for a small-form-factor NUC, laptop, or ultra-mobile PC, you'll have to be content with a last-generation CPU (or perhaps an AMD processor) until... Read more...
We know Intel will round out is Alder Lake lineup with more desktop SKUs, perhaps even announcing new models at the Consumer Electronics Show next month. The question is, will some of the SKUs rock solo with just Performance cores (P-cores) and leave out Efficient cores (E-cores) as rumored? There is more evidence to... Read more...
All of Intel's desktop Alder Lake CPUs so far have been unlocked K-series SKUs that are typically meant for power users and enthusiasts who may plan to overclock. As such, those don't ship with stock cooling solutions, the theory being buyers will want to use their own, higher-end coolers anyway. However, rumor has it... Read more...
Data from a major retailer in Germany shows that Alder Lake is already helping Intel regain some of the market share it gave up to AMD. That retailer is MindFactory, and looking at the sales data for the past month, Intel has finally climbed above 30 percent for the first time since AMD released its Ryzen 3000 series... Read more...
We have already seen what Alder Lake can do on the desktop (see our Alder Lake performance review), and it is quite impressive. However, the hybrid nature of the platform has the potential to be a boon for laptops, with the efficiency cores (E-cores) perhaps helping to extend battery life. We'll see in due time. For...

Around a month ago, MSI teased us with renders depicting its stunning MEG Z690 Godlike motherboard for Intel's Alder Lake platform. We're still waiting for it to release. Until it does, we have some delightful photos to feast our eyeballs on, courtesy of a popular leaker who uploaded a small handful of product shots... Read more...
In the early going, there is a single chipset available for Alder Lake—Z690, which happens to be Intel's flagship offering. That's not surprising, as chip makers like to put their best feet forward when launching generational products. However, more mainstream chipsets are on the horizon and a fresh leak purports to...

More evidence is piling up to suggest Intel will soon be expanding its Alder Lake universe with mobile chips for laptops. Our best guess is a Consumer Electronics Show unveiling next month. We'll see, but in the meantime, another overseas retailer has posted listings for gaming laptops with unreleased and unannounced... Read more...
If you are looking to build a PC around one of Intel's newfangled Alder Lake CPUs, it's Z690 or bust, as far as the motherboard platform goes. The vast majority of Z690 motherboards that are out so far cost north of $200 (some are far north). That's not unexpected given that Z690 is a top-tier chipset, though if... Read more...
If you read our Alder Lake performance review, then you're already familiar with how Intel's upper-tier 12th Gen Core processors handle themselves in a variety of workloads (Spoiler: really well). But what about the other end of the spectrum? We can't say for sure until Intel fleshes out its lineup with more SKUs and... Read more...
Hot on the heels of Intel's recent 12th Gen Core processor launch, we partnered up with Falcon Northwest (and its generous colleagues!) to give away an absolute stunner of a gaming PC, as you can clearly see in all of the pics. We know many of you have been itching to get you hands on some 12th Gen Core processor... Read more...
You want to have a look at the non-overclockable versions of Intel's Alder Lake 12Th Gen Core desktop CPU lineup? Well, there they are, pictured plain as day right above this text. Have a gander, if you want. These pictures come to us by way of a post on Zhihu, which is a Chinese social media site that is sort of like... Read more...
When we tested Intel's latest and greatest desktop CPUs, the 12th-generation Core family codenamed "Alder Lake," we found them to have world-beating gaming performance. That's thanks in large part to the refinements made to its "Golden Cove" P-cores over the "Willow Cove" cores used in Rocket Lake, which we can infer... Read more...
Judging by the way many people talk about them, it seems like a large contingent of folks don't realize that 12th-generation Intel Core desktop processors based on Alder Lake have actually been released. They're out there; you can go buy them right now, along with compatible motherboards and premium-priced (at least... Read more...
RPCS3 is the world's leading PlayStation 3 emulator software. It allows users to play their own rips of commercial PlayStation 3 games, and last month, the project announced that it is now able to boot every game title released for the PS3. Progress doesn't stop there, though, and there's much to be done. The... Read more...
You can bet your bottom dollar that more Alder Lake CPUs are coming. We don't have confirmation on what the full stack (or a fleshed out stack) might look like yet but if past and present leaks are on the money, the Core i5-12400 will be one of them. One of the newest benchmark leaks hints it could give the Ryzen 5... Read more...
If you thought the launch of Alder Lake on the desktop would mark the end of the 12th Gen Core benchmark leaks, think again. Not only are there more desktop chips undoubtedly coming, but there will be a mobile launch at some point too. Regarding the latter, an unannounced Core i7-12800H has jumped into the leaked...

Prior to the retail launch of Alder Lake, early engineering and qualification samples (ES and QS) had traded hands in China by way of sale posts in various forums and other outlets. Now they are starting to appear on eBay, but if you are considering buying one be advised that they may not work with your... Read more...
In our Intel 12th Gen Core Alder Lake review, the latest desktop silicon from Chipzilla lived up to the hype, managing some clear wins in a bunch of benchmarks. Our overall evaluation of the Core i9-12900K and Core i7-12600K is a little more nuanced than that, but simply put, Intel is back in the fight. What about in... Read more...
Things are heating up in the PC industry as we head into the holiday season, as evidenced by Intel's recent 12th Gen Core processor launch. 12th Gen Core processors bring the fight to Intel's rivals with a brand-new hybrid architecture that offers top-notch performance -- especially for games -- and the platform as a...
