One of the sticking points hampering adoption of Intel's Arc GPUs has been its performance in older titles, particularly those using much older versions of the DirectX API. You could argue that it doesn't matter whether the card gets 150 or 300 FPS in CS:GO, but some people take that kind of distinction very... Read more...
Hardware benchmarks specialist, Basemark, is getting ready to release a new product called ‘GPUScore: In Vitro’. In brief, In Vitro is claimed to be the world’s first ray tracing technology benchmark for mobile devices. The tool has been crafted to provide users and reviewers a good reference point for judging new and... Read more...
You may recall that we reported back in October on an official revision of the GeForce RTX 3060. Far from a rumor, NVIDIA's website was quietly updated to list an 8GB model of the lower-mid-range GPU. Well, Australian tech-tubers Hardware Unboxed (HWUB) managed to snag one of the 8GB RTX 3060 cards and put it through... Read more...
Benchmark results which appear to be from a system packing an Apple M2 Max processor have appeared online. The Geekbench online result browser indicates that someone put an M2 Max powered system through its paces in Geekbench 5.4.0 Tryout for MacOS AArch64 earlier today. It scored a very credible 1853 and 13855 in the... Read more...
Another of Intel's upcoming 13th Gen Core Raptor Lake (RPL) processors for laptops appears to have broken cover. We have previously seen some powerful HX series mobile RPL chips (55W base power), but this one is apparently from the P series (28W base power), aimed at premium thin and light devices. Despite the lower... Read more...
Qualcomm had a lot of new technology to roll out at its annual Snapdragon Summit this year in Maui, HI. The company teased a new custom CPU core, announced a hardware platform for smart glasses, and of course, unveiled its latest flagship Snapdragon Mobile Platform—the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. This new Arm-based... Read more...
A lot of folks out there who don't bleed Radeon Red are eagerly awaiting the release of Intel's next-generation Raptor Lake processors to see how they compare against AMD's latest and greatest CPUs. We'll have those numbers for you soon™, but in the meantime, here's some leaked benchmark slides that seem to be from... Read more...
The GeForce RTX 4080 will come in two flavors when it launches next month. Given that the just-released RTX 4090 is too rich for the blood of most folks, everyone's been wondering how its smaller siblings compare. Well, the only people who can tell you that right now are at NVIDIA, but fortunately, they've done just... Read more...
It seems like regular leaker Raichu (@OneRaichu on Twitter) has gotten his little Pokémon paws on a pair (at least) of pre-release processors from both Intel and AMD. With the hardware in hand, he did what any proper enthusiast would do, and benchmarked them against each other. However, these benchmarks aren't just... Read more...
A flurry of benchmark results have recently been unearthed, purportedly from PC systems featuring retail versions of AMD’s yet-to-be-released Ryzen 7 7700X processors. We have both CPU-Z and Geekbench 5 sysinfo reveals, and test results, for the yet to be launched ‘Raphael’ chip. In the tests, the Zen 4 architecture... Read more...
Ah, Geekbench. While the benchmark app is occasionally controversial—particularly where comparisons against Apple hardware are involved—it makes for a reasonably solid benchmark with consistent and relevant results, within the same platform. AMD just announced its new line-up of Ryzen 7000 series CPUs and the Ryzen 9... Read more...
Benchmarks don't tell the whole story when it comes to device performance, but they can provide important points of comparison. Not all benchmarks are created equal, though. You need something that supports the latest technology to properly assess the capabilities of a device, particularly one that fits in your... Read more...
Ashes of the Singularity, which is in fact a video game and not just a benchmark, famously maintains a large benchmark database. That's one of many such lists that Twitter bot @BenchLeaks monitors for unrecognized CPU and GPU results. The bot's tearless retina spotted a result in the Ashes of the Singularity database...

Evidence of a number of CPU-Z benchmark runs using a system based upon an Intel Core i7-13700K engineering sample (ES) have turned up on-line. Images and videos recording a PC’s screen appear to show an overclocked Raptor Lake, or 13th gen Intel Core processor, being pushed to 6GHz on all performance cores (P-cores)... Read more...
PC hardware companies work in funny ways sometimes. When AMD had a new driver ready that added extra features with arguably niche appeal, like its AMD Link in-home streaming tech, it was very excited to tell us about it, and have us tell you about it. However, when it released a new driver recently with real... Read more...
Do you remember last year when Chinese crypto-miners were snatching up GeForce RTX 30-series laptops to use their GPUs for mining? The mobile GPUs never got a hash rate limitation, unlike the desktop models, so desperate miners started propping up piles of laptops and pointing fans at them to make them mine... Read more...
As much as we're excited to see Arc GPUs in the plastic flesh, the throw-down everyone wants to see in the latter part of this year is going to be Zen 4 versus Raptor Lake. AMD's upcoming processors will be its first generation to use DDR5 memory, but Intel's next chips will be its second with both the new memory and... Read more...
Windows 11 has been a contentious launch for Microsoft. Historically speaking, when users are dissatisfied with the latest Windows release (Windows 95, Windows ME, Windows Vista), the next release is usually met with relative enthusiasm. Yet, while Windows 10 isn't exactly beloved by most users, Windows 11 isn't... Read more...
We're fans of GPD around here. The Shenzen-based startup has been successfully selling super-portable micro-PCs running full-fat Windows for half a decade now, and its latest model, the Win Max 2, looks to be its most powerful yet—even if it stretches the bounds of "portability" a bit. As you could surmise from the... Read more...
Synthetic benchmarks get a bad rap. Sure, they're not always representative of real application performance -- that much is inarguable. They're still extremely useful, though. Not only can they help developers pinpoint performance problems for specific troubleshooting, but they also can help users confirm that their... Read more...
Intel's published a reviewer's guide for folks taking a look at its recently-released high-end mobile GPUs, the Arc A730M and Arc A770M. We can't publish the guide, or any part of it, so we won't. Intel did give us the go-ahead to talk about some of the contents of the guide, though, and the most interesting part by... Read more...
Samsung is once again being accused of cheating on benchmarks, but this time it involves the company's TVs. HotHardware previously reported on the company throttling performance in games and other applications on its Galaxy smartphones, while leaving benchmarking applications like 3DMark alone. It isn't unusual for... Read more...
