We've only just gotten the first phones with Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip, including the new OnePlus 11, and already an alleged benchmark of its successor has leaked. The supposed Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 benchmark shows the ARM processor besting everything under the sun, even Apple's class-leading A16... Read more...
AMD's Ryzen 6000 mobile series, codenamed Rembrandt, offer solid performance and strong efficiency along with great integrated graphics. They do fall behind Intel's latest in both single- and multi-core performance, but that's why AMD isn't standing still. The company's already announced its next-generation mobile... Read more...
For sure, the GeForce RTX 4090, RTX 4080, and RTX 4070 Ti are cool graphics cards, but the value proposition as well as the way the specifications are trending have left some folks wondering what lower-end Ada Lovelace-based GeForce GPUs will look like. Well, we may have our first peek at an upcoming desktop GeForce... Read more...
AMD’s unreleased Ryzen 7 7845HX laptop processor has appeared in PassMark’s laptop CPU performance charts. The Dragon Range processor, which mixes Zen 4 CPU cores and RDNA 2 graphics, hasn’t quietly slipped into the PassMark rankings, it boldly sits right at the top of the chart with a score of 46,791. To put some... Read more...
HPC and hyperscale guys are excited for Intel's Xeon Max processors with onboard HBM, but Sapphire Rapids comprises an entire line of processors spanning the whole range of Xeons. One of those chips has just shown up in the Geekbench database, spotted by the watchful eye of the Benchleaks bot. The processor in... Read more...
When Intel announced the lineup for its Arc "Alchemist" graphics cards, there were three tiers, just like its CPUs. We've seen Arc A300 GPUs, and we've seen Arc A700 GPUs, but so far, the A500 series is missing in action. Well now, a new benchmark leak may contain exactly that; with 16 Xe Cores, it lands directly... Read more...
Every once in a while, a product comes along that makes you think, "why weren't we doing it this way in the first place?" It's quite possible that Corsair's rumored RMx Shift series of power supplies could be one such product. In the leaked images from 188号 (@momomo_us on Twitter), the new power supplies look like the... Read more...
So Intel's first discrete GPUs based on the Alchemist design, known as Arc A770, Arc A750, and Arc A380, have been out for a bit. Since that launch, they've seen significant performance improvements thanks to driver updates as well as the implementation of XeSS in titles like Marvel's Spider-Man, Hitman 3, and Redout...

Intel's already-launched 13th-gen CPUs, code-named "Raptor Lake," are fantastically-fast and reasonably-priced, too. They're also pretty hot and power-thirsty. While that's to be expected for hot-clocked enthusiast chips like the "K" series, it's led some to wonder how the architecture will hold up under a more... Read more...
Have you built a current-generation system yet, loyal HotHardware reader? If not, one of our first guesses as to why could be the high price of motherboards. While AMD has its budget B650 chipset out and the cheapest boards are in the $150 USD range (loosely), Intel's 700-series platform is currently limited to the... Read more...
NVIDIA's decision to cancel (or "unlaunch") the GeForce RTX 4080 12GB card was apparently because it wasn't "named right." That's fair enough, given the wide gulf in specifications between the extant RTX 4080 and the canceled card. However, the card's $899 price was also a point of contention, and many people have...

Otoy's Octanerender is a plug-in renderer available for lots of software suites, including Blender, Cinema4D, Unity, and Unreal just to name a few. It's a full-on cinematic-quality ray-tracer that runs entirely on the GPU without sacrificing quality. Naturally, that makes it an excellent GPU performance benchmark... Read more...
Intel's desktop Raptor Lake processors are insanely fast, to be sure. A significant portion of that speed originates with their sky-high clock rates, and to hit those numbers, it needs quite a bit of power. Rumors have been swirling for a bit that Meteor Lake, fabricated primarily on Intel's next-gen "Intel 4"... Read more...
The state of the HEDT market has been pretty bleak the last few years. AMD's Threadrippers went PRO-only, while Intel's been letting its high-end customers languish on the Cascade Lake-X platform that's still rocking the old Skylake core design at its heart. The blue team has new workstation processors on the way, but... Read more...
We were impressed with the gaming prowess of AMD's Navi 31 GPU used in the Radeon RX 7900 XT and XTX, but a bit less so with their productivity performance. As if to drive home the point, a few leaked Geekbench results have popped up for the forthcoming GeForce RTX 4070 Ti—the card formerly known as the RTX 4080... Read more...
Intel is sunsetting the Pentium and Celeron brands for low-end laptop parts. Low-end laptop processors will apparently just be called "Intel Processors" now. Simple enough, we suppose. The tearless electric retina of the BenchLeaks bot has spotted the first benchmark for one such processor, and it is apparently known... Read more...
Little PCs like Intel's Raptor Canyon NUC 13 Extreme are absolutely awesome, but you aren't going to be fitting a GeForce RTX 4080 in one of those things. You might get away with a Radeon RX 7900 XTX, but it'll still be a snug fit—and that a pretty good-sized chassis, as small-form-factor machines go. If you want to... Read more...
If you've been eyeing up a new system based on Intel's 13th-generation Core series (codenamed 'Raptor Lake') but balking at the high prices of Z790 motherboards, don't fret—Intel may have some relief on the way. The B760 chipset is rumored to be coming along early next month, but it might not save you as much as you... Read more...
The Ryzen 7 5800X3D is a fascinating processor. AMD stacked an extra 64MB of L3 cache, known as 3D V-Cache, onto a Ryzen 7 5800X, giving it immense gaming performance in some titles despite a small drop in clock rate versus the stock model. A lot of folks are holding off on Zen 4 until they can buy one of AMD's new... Read more...
Back in August, we reported on a leak from Skyjuice over at Angstronomics that gave different values from earlier leaks for some of the specifications in AMD's RDNA 3-based Radeon RX 7000 family. While the Navi 33 specifications were essentially similar, Skyjuice predicted lower-than-expected core counts for Navi 32... Read more...
In an unprecedented move, NVIDIA "unlaunched" the "GeForce RTX 4080 12GB," leaving the extant GeForce RTX 4080—based on GA103, with 16GB of memory—as the singular GeForce RTX 4080 model. This was done pretty late, though, and those chips and even cards were already manufactured. It's a given that NVIDIA will re-launch... 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...
