It has been about a year since the modular laptop company, Framework, launched its first modular "build-it-yourself" laptop product. In that time, the company has launched a few new attachments to expand upon the capabilities of the model they've already released. However, the big news today is that they have managed...

Intel does just fine for itself in terms of gaming performance, but it's impossible to deny the effects that super-large caches have had on competitor AMD's processors. The red team's extant Zen 3 processors were running well behind Intel's Alder Lake chips in gaming, but apparently attaching an extra 64MB of L3 cache... Read more...
As far as we know for sure, Intel's Arc graphics parts based on the Alchemist architecture will come in fundamentally two forms—a smaller die with up to 128 EUs, and a bigger die with up to 512 EUs. Obviously, indivdual SKUs will vary on the number of active functional elements, but aside from one curious oddity in the Linux source pointing Read more...
HP is refreshing its Omen and Victus gaming laptops with better cooling and upgraded hardware options from Intel, AMD, and NVIDIA. The best part is, they're perhaps more affordable than some people may have anticipated—pricing starts at $799.99 for the Victus 15 and $1,199.99 for the Omen 16. The Victus is... Read more...
Everyone's waiting anxiously for the release of new Intel Arc graphics cards to see how they stack up to the competition from AMD and NVIDIA, but don't forget that Intel has already released a couple of Arc products. Laptops packing the Alchemist-based A370M and A350M GPUs are slowly trickling into the market, and of... Read more...
It turns out Intel wasn't finished fleshing out its Alder Lake family. Introduced during the Intel Vision event earlier this weak, the 12th Gen Core Alder Lake-HX lineup brings more desktop goodness to a handful of high-performance mobile SKUs, such as support for up to 128GB of DDR5 memory and PCI Express 5.0. It's... Read more...
It's been a long road for Intel's Arctic Sound. We first heard the codename whispered back in 2018. At one time, it was rumored to be the codename for datacenter GPUs based on "Xe-HP". As it turns out, that didn't come to fruition, and the card expected to materialize in 2020 never appeared. Arctic Sound is real... Read more...
The desktop PC market took it on the chin in the first quarter of 2022, as excess inventory and normal seasonal downturns jointly contributed to a steep drop in x86 CPU shipments. The steepest, in fact, from one quarter to the next—desktop CPU shipments plummeted more than 30 percent, marking the "worst quarterly... Read more...
At its Intel Vision event in Dallas suburb Grapevine, Texas where it announced the 12th-gen Alder Lake-HX mobile CPUs, Intel also had an exhibition showing off its fancy new manufacturing technology. The company has been rapidly striding away from monolithic processor fabrication in the last couple of years, and while... Read more...
As recently as yesterday, we've posted rumors regarding the eventual release of Intel's Arc graphics cards. Sure, they've already appeared in laptops—at least in low-end form—but the higher-end cards, as well as any desktop parts at all, are nowhere to be seen yet. Almost as if in response to the rumors going... Read more...
Intel is expanding its Alder Lake family with one more series in the mobile sector, and in doing so it paves the way for even more capable mobile workstations and gaming laptops. Announced at its Intel Vision 2022 conference, the new 12th Gen Intel Core HX processors extend the H-series into what is essentially a... Read more...
Rumors of the desktop PC market's demise have been greatly exaggerated. Indeed, while laptops still outsell desktops, the majority of laptops sold don't have discrete graphics. Meanwhile, AMD's setting sales records with its Ryzen processors that overwhelmingly don't include an integrated graphics processor, putting... Read more...
You may have heard, Intel is releasing desktop graphics cards soon. Assuming you haven't just returned from living off the grid for a spell, you already know this. But when exactly are these cards finally going to manifest, and how much will they cost? If the latest rumors pan out, Intel's first Arc Alchemist graphics... Read more...
Hardware nerds of a certain vintage will recall the name Glaze3D with a mix of emotions. Some folks will feel wistful at what could have been, while others will smirk in vicious irony at the vaporware nature of the product. After all, the truth is that Glaze3D never came out, so we don't really know what could have... Read more...
Back when Intel first announced the Xe HPG Scavenger Hunt in October of last year, we did some analysis on the value of each award to estimate the retail pricing of the cards. Now that the contest is over, winners have received e-mails confirming their prizes as well as the actual retail value of the rewards in... Read more...
Regular HotHardware readers may recall us reporting last summer that Intel had supposedly stolen a march on AMD by snatching up all of TSMC's 3nm chip capacity. Obviously, the foundry can only produce so many chips in a given time frame, and reportedly, Intel was paying top dollar for first dibs on the bleeding-edge... Read more...
Things are finally starting to look up in the PC space. You can actually find graphics cards in stock and selling for close to MSRP (and in some cases, not a penny over a particular SKU's list price), and there have been some fantastic CPU deals from both AMD and Intel. Is it just a temporary moment of bliss... Read more...
People might have scoffed at AMD's "stapled-together" processors once upon a time, but it has become clear since then that chiplet-based processor designs are the way forward. There are still benefits to making monolithic CPUs, but they can be costly and inefficient, compared to "disaggregated" designs. Intel's... Read more...
The first quarter of 2022 is in the books at Intel and it was an overall big one, especially within its data center and Intel Foundry Services (IFS) businesses. The former raked in $6 billion, representing a hefty 22 percent year-over-year gain, while the latter skyrocketed 175 percent from the same quarter a year ago... Read more...
It took a minute, but the first laptops equipped with Intel's Arc Alchemist GPUs have shown up for roll call at retail in the US. We had suspected Samsung would beat others to the punch, as it was the first out the door with an Arc-powered laptop (Galaxy Book2 Pro) in South Korea, but it looks like ASUS and HP will...

As far as we know Intel's Arc Alchemist GPUs are coming in the form of either two or three chips: one with 512 Execution Units (EUs), a much smaller one with 128 EUs, and possibly a mid-size model with 256 EUs. Armed with that knowledge, an experienced enthusiast might reasonably expect Intel to launch five or six... Read more...
The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has awarded Intel and its collaborators a contract to develop advanced simulation solutions for off-road autonomous ground vehicles. The hope is that these sims will reduce the significant gap that exists between on-road and off-road autonomous vehicle... Read more...
