As far as current-generation GPUs go, AMD has largely ceded the mid-range part of the market—for this discussion, we're calling $350 to $600 "mid-range"—to competitor NVIDIA, at least for now. We could debate the reasons behind this, but it probably comes down to either an excess of stock for last-generation parts, or... Read more...
AMD and Intel have rather similar mobile strategies at this point. Both companies ship two types of laptop CPUs—larger chips, marked "HX", which are based on silicon that is also used for desktop CPUs, and then smaller processors that are specifically intended for mobile usage. These are typically marked H, HS, P, or... Read more...
The folks over at at Chinese tech site BenchLife have posted up what they purport to be the key specifications for Intel's upcoming 14th-generation Raptor Lake Refresh processors. There aren't any surprises here, as this is fundamentally the same silicon as seen in the extant Raptor Lake processors. However, we do... Read more...
By now, we have a pretty decent idea of what's going to show up on the desktop for Intel's "14th-generation" Core CPUs: a refresh of Raptor Lake, using fundamentally the same cores with slightly higher clocks. It does look like Intel is doing the same thing with core counts that it did with the lower-end 13th-gen... Read more...
Whether you think that the spate of melted 12VHPWR connectors was the fault of users (for not plugging it in all the way) or the fault of the connector's design, it's clear that it was a fairly unique situation to that connector. In that case, the connector probably needs revision, as having people fry components due... Read more...
The jump from Pixel 6 to Pixel 7 wasn't huge, but Google didn't need to do much. The Pixel 6 was the first of the series that got everything mostly right, and the next version improved upon that. The Pixel 8, however, is shaping up to be a more substantial update. The rumor mill has already provided possible display... Read more...
Do you recall, dear reader, all of those rumors that speculated of wild and wonderfully-insane power limits for the GeForce RTX 4090? The released card's already-incredible 450W power limit looks absolutely meager compared to the 600W, 700W, and even 800W of the pre-release rumors. Those rumors weren't entirely... Read more...
We're still a few months out from the release of Google's next flagship smartphones, but leaks have pointed to a potentially major upgrade. The Google Pixel 8 might be able to power a desktop computing experience via USB DisplayPort alternate mode. So, you might be able to link a Pixel 8 with a monitor to get a... Read more...
Escape From Tarkov is a hardcore first-person looter-shooter set in the fictional world of Tarkov. With semi-regular updates and changes, players are always looking for an edge to give them an advantage in combat, up to and including data mining the game for stats and other information. However, the developers... Read more...
It's a foregone conclusion that Google is going to release new Pixel phones later this year. After stumbling more than once with its Pixel phones, Google is finally on a roll. The Pixel 6 was excellent, and the Pixel 7 built on that to become even better. We don't know everything the Pixel 8 will bring, but we do have... Read more...
Google is on the verge of releasing its first foldable, but it won't have long in the limelight before Samsung comes roaring back. The company has already announced its next Unpacked event for July 26, but we don't have to wait to get a glimpse of the Galaxy Z Fold 5. A new leak purports to show an official render of...

If you read that headline and thought, "what the heck is a Core Ultra," you haven't been keeping up with your rumors, dear reader. Indeed, Intel seems to be readying a branding shift away from "Core i" and toward "Core Ultra," at least for its Meteor Lake mobile parts. So this latest leak is for a Core Ultra 7... Read more...
Welcome back, friends, to the show that never ends. That's right: it's dubious hardware leak time, and our subjects today are a pair of what appear to be Intel Meteor Lake CPUs that have popped up in the SiSoft SANDRA result database. We say "appear to be" because the processors have, as usual, been marked out with... Read more...
Yes, you read that headline correctly, and no, it's not an error. Six-hundred-watt CPUs are on the way, at least according to a leaked slide supposedly from Gigabyte. Put down the albuterol inhaler, though; we're not talking about a 600W CPU in your desktop PC—at least, not unless you regularly run top-end server... Read more...
Meteor Lake is the codename for Intel's first "disaggregated" processors made from discrete tiles rather than as monolithic pieces of silicon. They're expected to be fairly low-power and relatively modest in terms of specifications, at least compared to the current power-thirsty Raptor Lake CPUs. Leaks have shown... Read more...
AMD's RDNA 3 architecture is a significant evolution over the RDNA 2 used in its Radeon RX 6000 GPUs. Unfortunately, it's only available in two places right now: the halo-tier Radeon RX 7900 products, and the integrated graphics of Ryzen 7040-series processors. That's all set to change this quarter, according to... Read more...
Veteran smartphone leaker Evan "evleaks" Blass is back at it, having just revealed a raft of Google Pixel Fold images and info. Naturally, Google hasn't acknowledged this upcoming foldable's existence, but these are no blurry-cam photos. Blass has posted high-resolution press renders, as well as some precise... Read more...
A product advertising leak, which appears to have surfaced via US tech retail giant Best Buy, has allayed our darkest ASUS ROG Ally fears today. The listing shows the highly anticipated AMD Z1 Extreme APU packing handheld will launch at $699. Some will be pleased at this price, as it makes the new Steam Deck... Read more...
Graphics processors need a lot of memory bandwidth for good performance. This is why discrete GPUs have hot-clocked GDDR or HBM on massively-wide memory interfaces, but integrated graphics don't have that luxury. Instead, they have to share a relatively-pokey (in terms of bandwidth) main memory interface with the CPU... Read more...
Discord is an incredible service, if you think about it. Anyone, with a free account, can create their own private space to chat over text, voice, or video. These Discord "servers" allow an unlimited number of file uploads and downloads, and you can even link the resources hosted on Discord externally. It has a... Read more...
It was in April of last year, almost fully a year ago, that Intel told us it had Meteor Lake silicon up and running well enough to boot Windows. That's why it's sort-of surprising that we're just now seeing our first benchmark leak for what appears to be a mobile Meteor Lake processor in a Dell Inspiron test... Read more...
NVIDIA has confirmed that its eSports gamer boosting Reflex technology is on the way to Counter-Strike 2. However, the graphics firm’s boasts about Reflex enhancements have gotten a little ahead of its product launch schedule, providing the first official acknowledgement that a GeForce RTX 4070 desktop graphics card...
