Given unlimited funds, most of us would choose to build a top-flight PC with a flagship AMD Ryzen 9 7950X or Intel Core i9-13900K processor. That's well and good if you can afford to go that route. If not, though, there are some compelling bang-for-buck options from both AMD and Intel. Out of curiosity, we looked up... 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...
Intel's had a history of experimenting with different types of voltage regulation when attempting to optimize the efficiency of its processors. The 4th-generation Core CPUs codenamed "Haswell" used a fully-integrated voltage regulator (FIVR) that was then dropped in the 6th-generation Skylake chips because it was too... Read more...
For quite some time now—since the mid-1990s or thereabouts—there's been a significant split in the PC market between standard consumer desktops and workstation systems, also known as "high-end desktop" (HEDT) systems. HEDT machines, generally speaking, usually offer more high bandwidth connectivity, more cores, and... Read more...
It would not have been totally unreasonable to think that Intel would stick to enthusiast desktops for Raptor Lake and skip budget or mobile offerings. After all, Raptor Lake is by some measure a stopgap solution, basically a tweaked Alder Lake with higher power limits. The big shift is coming with its... Read more...
Intel NUC 13 Extreme - Starting at $1179 ($1549 w/ Core i9-13900K) The new Intel NUC 13 Extreme is the fastest, most powerful NUC yet, but it's also the largest.   Ultra High Performance Relatively Quiet Supports 3-Slot GPUs Easier To Build Pushing The Limits Of SFF Price Premium Intel has consistently updated and upgraded its...

There's a long history of vendor-locked graphical techniques that only see implementation in a few games. Names like Quincunx and Truform (among many others) resonate in PC gamers' memories, and it sometimes inoculates us against enthusiasm for new technologies. Intel doesn't want XeSS to go the way of the T-buffer... Read more...
Intel is on the hook for a massive $948.8 million judgement after a federal jury in Texas decided it infringed on a key patent held by VLSI Technology, a silicon valley firm that designs and manufacturers custom and semi-custom integrated circuits. It's the latest showdown in what's become an ongoing saga between... Read more...
We love to talk desktop hardware around here. Those are the high-powered parts, of course, with potent performance that puts up the big benchmark numbers. Even still, laptops make up a huge swath of the market, so we can't ignore those chips. Both AMD and Intel have new laptop processors on the horizon, but the ones... Read more...
Intel has developed a deepfake detection tool called FakeCatcher which is claims is 96% effective at flagging altered videos. More importantly, Intel says FakeCatcher can operating in real-time with results reported within milliseconds. Deepfake videos are produced using AI algorithms which can digitally stitch one...

Gamers are in a good place when it comes to the selection of CPUs from AMD and Intel, both of which recently rolled out new architectures—Zen 4 and Raptor Lake, respectively. That said, the best is yet to come. Both chip makers are purportedly readying even faster silicon based on these existing architectures to power... Read more...
Intel's desktop Raptor Lake CPUs offer competitive-or-better performance compared to AMD's Ryzen 7000 family, and they do it at comparable-or-lower prices, too. The power usage is even higher than last-generation though, and higher than AMD's own new power-thirsty chips as well. That bodes poorly for the laptop chips... Read more...
Lately, Intel faces stiff competition in what have traditionally been its strongest markets: data center and the enterprise. NVIDIA muscled in on Intel's territory a long time ago with its powerful GPU compute accelerators, but now the green team is pushing its own CPUs along with its GPUs. On the other side, it has...

Intel's upcoming Sapphire Rapids 4th Gen Xeon server CPUs, expected to compete with AMD's upcoming Epyc Zen 4 processors, are not even released yet. However, the company is already looking further ahead with Granite Rapids, Intel's 6th Gen Xeon platform, which is likely in the pipeline for 2023 or 2024. At the... Read more...
Depending on who you ask, Moore's Law is either dead and obsolete (NVIDIA) or the decades-old observation laid out by Intel co-founder Gordon Moore is alive and well (Intel), and will continue to thrive into the future. The latter opinion is that of Intel CEO Pat Gelsinger. It's also not a new one, but in a post on... Read more...
A lot of companies would be pleased as punch to generate $13.5 billion in any given three-month period. But there's only one Intel, and that figure represents a 20 percent year-over-year decline in third-quarter revenue, which the company attributed to a challenging economy and weakening PC demand as the world...

A Geekbench benchmark leak appears to indicate that the upcoming Intel Raptor Lake mobile flagship CPU is going to offer a lot more MHz than its predecessor. According to the system information spilled alongside the benchmark result, this 14C/20T mobile chip boosts all the way up to 5.4GHz. Its predecessor, the... Read more...
Gigabyte is grinning from ear-to-ear after its Z790 Aorus Tachyon motherboard played a role in setting a benchmark record. There are plenty of accolades to go around, however, and the real crown jewel is Intel's flagship Core i9-13900K processor. Based on Raptor Lake, the 13th Gen chip has been busy setting...

It wasn't all that long ago that we had our first experience with Intel's 4th-generation Scalable Xeons, code-named Sapphire Rapids, and checked out some live benchmarks. In the demonstration, Intel put its pre-release silicon up against the current best from AMD, a server with a pair of Milan-based EPYC 7763 64-core... Read more...
Records are meant to be broken and ASUS is all too happy to play its part with its ROG Maximus Z790 Apex motherboard for Intel's Raptor Lake CPUs. The latest record-setting achievement set on the ROG Maximus Z790 Apex is an 8.8GHz clock speed, obtained from Intel's flagship Core i9-13900K processor—the highest-ever... Read more...
PC and components maker ASRock has another custom paint job motherboard in the pipeline. Coinciding with today’s release of the Intel Core i9-13900K and other overclockable 13th Gen Core ‘Raptor Lake’ K processors, Intel Z790 chipset motherboards have naturally come to the fore. And, as per our headline, ASRock has a... Read more...
Intel Core i9-13900K - $589, Intel Core i5-13600K - $289 More cores, more cache, higher frequencies, and a refined design and manufacturing process boost the performance of Intel's 13th Gen Core processors significantly.   Excellent Performance Single Thread Leadership More Cores And Cache Same Socket As 12th Gen...
