The only chipset that's been announced for Intel's 12th Gen Core Alder Lake processors so far is Z690. Intel is getting things started at the high-end, with Z690 supporting all the newfangled technologies that Alder Lake is embracing, and especially DDR5 memory and PCI Express 5.0. But what about the rest of the... Read more...
It hasn't been long since we last took a look at the 2021 version of the Falcon Northwest Talon, and found it to be impressive. However, it’s finally time for Intel’s Alder Lake 12th Gen Core processor launch and we all know what that means -- a deluge of reviews with tons of charts and opinions for you to... Read more...
Gigabyte is facing some harsh criticism from Roman "der8auer" Harting, an extreme overclocker and the CEO of HWBot, over the company's recent chest-thumping at its Z690 Aorus Tachyon motherboard being used to push an Intel 12th Gen Core i9-12900K Alder Lake processor all the way to 8GHz. According to der8auer, it's a... Read more...
Alder Lake is here, and in a sense it represents Intel's own 'Zen' moment, like the one rival AMD had several years ago (see our Alder Lake review for our full analysis). That's great news for consumers (we need Intel and AMD to keep pushing and leapfrogging one another). What's not so great is that as good as Alder... Read more...
It's always fun to cheer for your team, isn't it? Sometimes it seems like folks love nothing more than to divide into opposing groups over the most arbitrary of boundaries and then battle to the figurative (or literal!) death over the difference. The Tech world is full of such holy wars, but few are as intense or as... Read more...
After many months of speculation, an early glimpse into the hybrid Alder Lake architecture in August, and an official line-up and feature reveal last week, Intel’s 12th Gen Core processors are finally ready for prime time. The time for innuendo and speculation is over – for the most part. We’ve had... Read more...
If there's been one drawback to Alienware's previous gen Aurora desktop series, it's that the systems we've gotten in for review have made a bit of a racket at times. These systems have always been well-equipped with the latest hardware and turn in some great performance, but their noise floor has sometimes been a... Read more...
Gigabyte is all grins and giggles today after partnering with HiCookie, an extreme overclocker, to take Intel's not-yet-released Core i9-12900K to new heights. Set to cement its status as the flagship chip in Intel's Alder Lake stack when it lands at retail, HiCookie revved the Core i9-12900K all the way to 8GHz... Read more...
It took a few days following Intel's Alder Lake announcement, but there are now a handful of places where you can preorder a 12th Gen Core processor, if that's what you want to do. We always recommend waiting for reviews, but hey, if you want to get a jump and/or take a leap of faith that Alder Lake will bring the... Read more...
Heads up we're going to have a special guest from Intel join us on Wednesday for a lively discussion on the chip maker's latest processor launch, Alder Lake. Marcus Kennedy, General Manager for Gaming and the Client Computing Group, will hop on our livestream to discuss the architecture and answer our questions, and... Read more...
According to MSI, it will be more important than ever to select the right cooler for Intel's new Alder Lake CPUs, and to make sure it is being mounted correctly. The reason? In short, the hotspots on different Alder Lake CPUs could be located in slightly different areas due to the hybrid makeup of the chip, and... Read more...
Ever wonder what kind of motherboard Zeus would build a PC around? If he opted for an Alder Lake rig, he would probably go for MSI's upcoming MEG Z690 Godlike, a massive slab of silicon traces that qualifies as the biggest motherboard the company has ever built, if some leaked schematics and measurements end up being...

Sometimes things don't go quite as planned, but the trick is to not give up. If anyone needs reminding of this, Intel's InnovatiON event yesterday should suffice. About 40 minutes into the event, Intel tried to demonstrate its newly unveiled Core i9-12900K Alder Lake processor setting a world record while heavily... Read more...
In what could very well be the coolest thing you see today, a notorious modder delidded a Core i9-12900K processor from Intel's newly announced Alder Lake stack, and provided a detailed video tour of the chip's makeup. That in and of itself is geektastic, but adding to the awesome-sauce, he also took some... Read more...
At its inaugural InnovatiON event, which kicked off this morning, Intel revealed a number of additional details regarding its upcoming 12th Gen Core processors, codenamed Alder Lake. We’ve been covering leaks, rumors and whatever else emerged regarding Alder Lake for ages. And after Intel’s recent... Read more...
Once Intel lifted the curtain on its Alder Lake processors, it took Dell all of a nanosecond to introduce upgraded desktop systems built around the chip maker's latest silicon. This isn't just a motherboard and CPU swap, though. Looking beyond the foundational components, Dell retooled its new XPS Desktop with a... Read more...
All indications point to Intel announcing and then releasing Alder Lake in the near future (certainly by the end of the year, but probably much sooner). While we wait, early benchmark leaks look encouraging, and have whet our appetite. Perhaps you find yourself pondering an upgrade. The question is, how much will it... Read more...
Several CPU cooler makers are offering LGA 1700 bracket upgrades for existing all-in-one liquid cooling solutions, so users who jump into Alder Lake will have one less expense to worry about (or a nominal one, as Corsair is selling its 'Retrofit Kits' for a small fee). But will they work as good as coolers designed... Read more...
Time is running out on the bulk of Alder Lake leaks to spark speculation, at least for whatever Intel has on tap for its first wave of CPUs. One of Intel's upcoming 12th Gen Core chips is the Core i5-12600K. Positioned as a mid-range chip, a recent benchmark leak suggests it will deliver high-end performance, punching... Read more...
If taking a sensible approach to plotting your next upgrade, it's too early to decide whether or not to make the leap to Alder Lake. There are questions that remain to be answered. Primarily, they include queries about price, performance, and the release date. Well, it looks like a major US retailer has answered two... Read more...
You can bet motherboard makers have every intention of giving Alder Lake the flagship treatment, and lest there be any doubt, leaked images showcase Gigabyte's upcoming Z690 Aorus Xtreme. It's a beauty for sure, and also wields some fancy technology on board—dual PCI Express 5.0 slots and DDR5 RAM support among... Read more...
As was the case with the move to DDR4 memory with Skylake and the move to DDR3 with Core 2-series processors, Intel's first DDR5-enabled platform is also backward-compatible with DDR4 SDRAM. That means that we'll be seeing motherboards for Intel's Alder Lake-series processors that accept DDR4 memory instead of DDR5... Read more...
