Somewhere out there is an Intel Arc software engineer who's chugging a Red Bull while furiously hammering out driver code and wearing a t-shirt that reads, 'Big performance gains or bust'. Or maybe not. Either way, the continued development of Arc on the software side has been nothing short of impressive, with now yet... Read more...

It's one of the most basic axioms of building a PC: make sure you have enough CPU for your GPU. That goes both ways, though; if you're building a gaming PC, there's no point spending out hundreds of dollars for a high-end CPU when you're going to slap a mid-range or mediocre GPU into it. This rings true even more now... Read more...
For the second time in about a four-week span, you can score a factory-overclocked Intel Arc A770 graphics card with 16GB of video memory for $60 below its list price.
