Apple is making some big performance claims related to its newly minted M1 Ultra chip, which is essentially a pair of M1 Max chips fused together. Will they stand up to scrutiny in the reviews circuit? Only time will tell, but as we wait to find out, a leaked benchmark run of the M1 Ultra highlights some impressive... 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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
Windows 11 is out, and part of the tuning that went into the OS was for it to do a better job utilizing hybrid architectures, like the one Intel is about to release with Alder Lake, and which AMD might eventually follow suit (don't rule out a hybrid future for Zen). Will it really make all that much of a difference... Read more...
At the risk of sounding like a broken record (probably too late), another leaked benchmark run serves to crank the hype dial on Alder Lake to 11 (or should that be 12, as in 12th Gen?). We've seen purportedly early Alder Lake CPU samples light up the pre-release benchmark charts before, and this latest one over at... Read more...
Maybe you've heard, Intel has a chip architecture on the horizon called Alder Lake. Of course you have, because in addition to Intel having already offered up some details on Alder Lake during its Architecture Day 2021 event (and at other times), a raft of other information (benchmarks, SKUs, and so forth) have been...

The 12th generation Intel Alder Lake processor leaks continue to file in at a rapid pace. Yesterday, Lenovo spilled the beans on its upcoming Legion 9000K (2022) desktop PC powered by Alder Lake, and today retail packaging for the processors has leaked to the internet. The leak came to us courtesy of VideoCardz... Read more...
Intel's upcoming Core i9-12900K processor is the star of yet another leaked benchmark run, and like several that have come before this one, it adds to the pre-launch hype and expectations surrounding Alder Lake. Obviously we can't put too much stock into pre-release (read: unofficial) benchmarks. But they are out... Read more...
Alder Lake is putting on quite a show in leaks, though obviously we can only glean so much from unconfirmed reports and benchmark runs. For now, those are all we have to go on, until Alder Lake arrives in earnest later this year. That said, a fresh leak has Intel's upcoming Core i9-12900K processor climbing above... Read more...
The CPU wars are not coming to an end anytime soon, and instead, we can expect some interesting skirmishes in the months and years ahead. It starts with Intel's next-gen Alder Lake launch that is now right around the bend. Early leaks have mostly been encouraging, including the latest one that shows a Core i9-12900K... Read more...
Intel is close to releasing its first batch of processors based on its hybrid Alder Lake architecture, at which point we will finally have some definitive answers about how it performs. Until then, we're left to leaks and rumors. In theory, leaks should be a little more reliable since we're so close to a retail... Read more...
Not every performance leak related to Alder Lake has been super encouraging, but this latest one certainly falls into that category. It showcases the upcoming Core i9-12900K in Geekbench, and both the single-threaded and multi-threaded scores are nothing short of impressive. They also seemingly highlight why the OS... Read more...
Each passing day seems to bring with it a leak of some kind related to Alder Lake, the heterogeneous architecture that will power Intel's next round of processors. And so it goes this weekend—there are a couple of interesting benchmark entries highlighting the performance of Intel's not-yet-released Core i9-12900K... Read more...
What will Intel's upcoming Alder Lake CPUs bring to the performance spectrum? Perhaps a retaking of the crown against AMD's finest. That is getting waaaay ahead of things, but if you are pulling for Alder Lake to hoist Intel back on top, then you will be interested in the latest supposedly leaked benchmark run... Read more...
Apparently there is already pent up demand for Intel's upcoming Alder Lake CPUs that are slated to launch by the end of the year. As such, later revision engineering samples (known as qualification samples, or QS chips) are fetching big bucks—up to around $1,200 for the flagship of the bunch, the Core i9-12900K. It...
