In case you missed it, Intel's planning to ship some four million or more discrete GPUs this year, and going forward, too. That doesn't necessarily mean four million desktop graphics cards, but to put things in perspective, the entire desktop graphics card market in 2021 was just twelve million units. So saying...

The first desktop Arc Alchemist graphics cards will arrive in time for summer, barring any last minute snags. Intel confirmed as much ahead of an investor meeting scheduled for this evening, saying desktop add-in cards based on Alchemist will ship in the second quarter, followed by professional models for workstations...

Here's a processor primer for novices: classical computing workloads are largely "serial", meaning they go through problems A, to, B, to C, in a series. CPUs have historically been designed through the years to be better and better at this kind of workload. More and more, though, we're also doing parallel work, which... Read more...
Finding a graphics card in stock from a first-party retailer could soon be a little bit easier than it has been in a very long time. That's not to say the shortage is about to end. However, those within the supply chain apparently feel confident that an uptick in ABF (Ajinomoto Build-up Film) substrate shipments will... Read more...
Yeah, I know, the latter part of the headline is an instant trigger for anyone who tried to get their hands on a graphics card last year and was unsuccessful. But I 'm choosing to be optimistic anyway, because the alternative is to spend another year in frustration. And maybe that's inevitable. But there are actually... Read more...
AMD's Radeon RX 6600, the most mainstream RDNA 2 card so far. Remember when graphics cards had more than two performance tiers, the line-ups were easy to decipher, and you could actually buy one? We remember, and that's why we've been disheartened by the dearth of any display devices below "upper-midrange" in the... Read more...
You may have struck out trying to buy a graphics card over the past several weeks, months, or even year, but don't shed a tear over AMD or NVIDIA on the assumption either one is hurting for GPU revenue. They're not. Quite the opposite, discrete add-in board (AIB) sales in the last quarter alone reached a whopping... Read more...
The dirty little secret in tech that is not really much of a secret at all is that the GPU shortage is partially a result of cryptocurrency mining. This depressing reality can be lost or overlooked when AMD and NVIDIA downplay how much crypto-mining plays into their bottom line, but there is a bigger picture to... Read more...
The lingering GPU shortage is frustrating for people who play games on PC, because graphics cards are just so hard to come by—they're either always out of stock, or selling for grossly inflated prices set by marketplace sellers. In case you were wondering, however, NVIDIA is doing just fine. More than just fine... Read more...
Is it too much to ask that we be allowed to buy the latest generation PC and console hardware at regular pricing, from first-party vendors? Under normal circumstances, paying full price is not a lofty expectation. But this past year has been anything but normal, and product shortages combined with determined scalpers... Read more...
Have you looked at the price of Bitcoin lately? The volatile currency ballooned to nearly $40,000 in recent weeks and is now hovering at a little over $37,000. This has prompted renewed interest in cryptocurrency mining (not that it ever dissipated completely), and if demand is high enough (J.P. Morgan reckons it... Read more...
If you are a performance enthusiast, trying to squeeze every drop of juice out of GPUs through overclocking can be vital to the key to the best experience. ASUS’ GPU Tweak software allows these enthusiasts to control and monitor their graphics solution thoroughly. The software is now getting an update with new... Read more...
Slowly but surely, it is becoming the absolute worst time to buy computer components as a new tariff that went into effect earlier this year is starting to trickle down to retailers. Customers in the market for PC components such as GPUs, motherboards and more, are beginning to see price hikes in stores and online... Read more...
It is certainly a tough time to be a gamer in need or want of a PC hardware upgrade. Some of the newest and most desirable parts are in short supply, including the latest generation graphics from AMD (Radeon RX 6000 series) and NVIDIA (GeForce RTX 30 series). This has led to inflated pricing by marketplace sellers... Read more...
Something big is afoot within Intel's graphics division. Sure, we already know Intel is hard at work on its first discrete GPU since Larrabee, which is now a footnote in the history of GPUs. But remember that massive GPU photo Intel shared yesterday? Intel's graphics boss Raja Koduri dropped another tweet in reference... Read more...
Fresh off the official unveiling of Intel's 10th generation 'Comet Lake-S' desktop processors culminating in the 10-core/20-thread Core i9-10900K, Raja Koduri, head of the company's graphics division, reminded the world that Intel is still heavily invested in launching a discrete GPU this year. And he used Twitter to get his message across. There Read more...
If you are on the fence about pouncing on a graphics card upgrade, you may want to go ahead pull the trigger. For one, the GPU is the most important component when it comes to playing games, and trying to get by with an old and outdated card can mean having to constantly fiddle with in-game settings. However, there potentially is a more pressing Read more...
