Intel shared a lot of information with us at Computex concerning its Lunar Lake mobile processors launching soon, but had very little to say about its upcoming Arrow Lake desktop CPUs. There were a few tidbits buried in the presentations on the Lion Cove and Skymont CPU architectures that constitute Lunar Lake and... Read more...
We're as curious as the next person about how Intel's next-generation Arrow Lake processors will fare, both in comparison to the company's own Raptor Lake Refresh CPUs and AMD's competing Zen 4 (and eventually Zen 5) chips. But as curious as we are, we're not about to buy an early sample for $14 from a sketchy sale by... Read more...
TAITRA, the Taiwan External Trade Development Council, has just announced that Intel CEO Pat Gelsinger will deliver a keynote speech at Computex Taipei. Gelsinger is scheduled to go on stage June 4th, and the release from TAITRA says that he will "detail how Intel's AI portfolio ... unlocks new possibilities in the... Read more...
Documents leaked by renowned leaker @yuuki_ans on X reveal that early Arrow Lake samples have Hyper Threading disabled by default, which to some has implied that Intel may be looking to launch its first consumer CPUs without support for Hyper Threading since 2006. However, we've read the fine print, and it seems like... Read more...
While it's normal for desktop and mobile CPUs to differ somewhat, you don't normally expect to see the mobile version of a chip support fewer instructions. According to a Linux kernel commit spotted by Linux enthusiast InstLatX86 though, that's exactly what we're going to see with Intel's next-generation Arrow Lake-S... Read more...
The launch of a new CPU can often range from being exciting, to the purely mundane in some cases. When that CPU is accompanied by an entirely new chipset, expectations are raised even further.  One important item that sometimes can be overlooked by consumers in the midst of the excitement on release day is the issue...

Igor’s Lab has provided some updates on Arrow Lake-S and its associated LGA 1851 socket, including 3D schematics of the CPU loading mechanism (bracket) and the chipset itself. Igor also unveiled a couple of updates on the chipset models we can expect with LGA Socket 1851, including the supposed cancellation of the... Read more...
Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company Limited (TSMC) is expected to be a big beneficiary of Intel’s plans through 2024-25. According to Goldman Sachs Securities analysts, as relayed by Taiwan’s Commercial Times, Intel is confidently expecting to ship significant numbers of its upcoming processor generations, and...

A tweet from hardware leaker @momomo_us reveals that Intel’s future Arrow Lake CPU architecture could drop DDR4 support entirely in favor of DDR5. If true, Arrow Lake will be Intel’s first CPU platform to support DDR5 alone, just like AMD’s latest AM5 platform and Ryzen 7000 series CPUs. Arrow Lake is the codename... Read more...
Intel's 12th-generation Alder Lake CPUs aren't that far from its 13th-gen Raptor Lake chips. There are lots of changes, of course, but from an end-user perspective, the biggest difference is the upgrade in L2 cache. Raptor Cove P-cores sport 2MB, and the E-core clusters have 4MB. That's up from 1.25MB and 2MB on Alder... Read more...
Intel's Linux engineers have pushed Meteor Lake-S (MTL-S) driver code for implementation in the Linux kernel. The publication of this code is interesting to see for two main reasons: it shows Intel is busy working on implementing support for its latest advanced processor architectures in Linux, and there have been...

Folks with LGA 1700 motherboards should keep eyes peeled for firmware updates if they're keen for a CPU upgrade. We already told you about BIOS updates from Gigabyte that add support for Intel's next-generation CPUs, but now there are reports coming in that both ASUS and ASRock are adding that same support to their... Read more...
There is quite a bit of intrigue surrounding Intel's CPU roadmap, in large part because of back and forth rumors regarding the chip maker's plan to release or not release a desktop variant of Meteor Lake. Clarity will come in time. Either way, we know that Arrow Lake also figures into Intel's future chip plans, and a... Read more...
If you're just joining us, the actual silicon that will comprise Intel's 14th-generation processors has been in question for a while now. Leaked roadmaps have indicated that Intel has both disaggregated Meteor Lake processors on the way, as well as a refresh of its extant Raptor Lake processors. It's been theorized... Read more...
If you talk to Intel, the company will tell you its roadmap remains on track to launch Meteor Lake and Arrow Lake this year and next, followed by Lunar Lake, an all-new and ultra-low power architecture built specifically for mobile. Unofficially, however, there have been rumors pointing to Meteor Lake skipping the... Read more...
According to a prominent leaks-centric TechTuber, Intel’s 15th Gen Core Arrow Lake processors are going to deliver a 45% IPC (instructions per clock) upgrade compared to the groundbreaking and still popular Alder Lake family. It sounds like a monster leap, which may be easy to feel cynical about, but perhaps we would... Read more...
"Hot Chips" isn't just the favorite snack of young people—it's also the name of a technological symposium held yearly in Silicon Valley. We're up to the 34th iteration of the gathering this year, and Intel is among those attending with a handful of presentations. There are some cool topics, like "Heterogenous... Read more...
"Hot Chips" sounds like a nice side dish, but is in fact a technological symposium held yearly in Silicon Valley. It's a place for processor vendors to talk about their latest innovations, and while branded-and-shipping products generally don't get announced there like they do at Computex or CES, companies like AMD...

Speaking as hardware nerds ourselves, if there's one thing that hardware nerds love to do, it's speculate on upcoming products. Around these parts, we're pretty pleased with Intel's 12th-Gen Alder Lake processors, but even still, we've done a lot of deliberating on Intel's future chips. Reportedly, we could see...

If you compare the Intel of the latter half of the 2010 to the Intel of the former half of 2010, they're barely recognizable. Once upon a time, Intel was firing on all cylinders, kicking butt and taking names with definitive leadership in both process technology and processor architectures. Eventually, however, the...
