That picture above will probably be familiar to anyone who's purchased a K-series Intel 12th-generation "Alder Lake" CPU—or anyone who reads news about them on this site. That's the box for the current-generation overclockable Intel CPUs. The box for Intel's next-gen CPUs has leaked, though, and you can see it... Read more...
It's only been a few days since some interesting GTA VI gameplay was leaked. The leak, which was authenticated by Rockstar Games, confirmed the location to be Vice City, and that there would be male and female protagonists. Some eagle-eyed viewers noticed something about GTA Online, though. What they found was an art... Read more...
When AMD announced its Zen 4-based Ryzen 7000 processors in August, it announced a peak clock rate of 5.7 GHz for the top-end, 16-core Ryzen 9 7950X model. That CPU is expected to boost to 5.85 GHz under Precision Boost Overdrive, but that's only on two cores. Even 5.7 GHz is well above the all-core clock speed, but... Read more...
It seems like regular leaker Raichu (@OneRaichu on Twitter) has gotten his little Pokémon paws on a pair (at least) of pre-release processors from both Intel and AMD. With the hardware in hand, he did what any proper enthusiast would do, and benchmarked them against each other. However, these benchmarks aren't just... Read more...
Microsoft has gone through several generations of Surface Laptops, some of which have been quite powerful machines. However, none of them have been explicitly tuned for gaming. That could change at the company's upcoming Surface unveiling later this month. A new leak purports to show the specs of Microsoft's Surface... Read more...
Intel sells a variety of processors with myriad letters stuck to the end. You're probably familiar with the K-series overclockable CPUs, but what about the -T SKUs? These chips have lower power limits and clock rates, and typically don't see a lot of leaks because they aren't usually as interesting to enthusiasts... Read more...
It's real fun to look at leaks of the RTX 4090 and its ludicrous graphics-processing prowess, but the unfortunate reality is that most of us simply do not have $1500 or more to lay out on a graphics card. The majority of us are going to be chomping at the bit for the lower-tier GPUs, so leaks about those are arguably... Read more...
Are you getting weary of endless pre-release CPU benchmark leaks? We've seen numerous results from AMD's incoming Ryzen 7000 series processors, and we've seen several from Intel's next-gen Raptor Lake processors, too. What we haven't seen yet are legitimate GPU leaks of AMD or NVIDIA's new hardware—at least, until... Read more...
Anyone who's done much overclocking will well know that efficient cooling is as much (or more) about the amount of airflow you have as it is the size of your radiator. That holds true for GPUs as well as CPUs, which is why we see graphics cards with massive triple-fan coolers. NVIDIA clearly knows this too, at least... Read more...
Power limits are going up and microprocessors are getting hotter. This is happening across the industry, and it's generally accepted to be the consequence of pushing performance ever higher despite gains from new fabrication processes becoming thinner and thinner. Rumor has it that AMD's next-generation Zen 4-based... Read more...
Reading that headline, you're probably already thinking: "5.2 GHz? Isn't that a lower speed than previous leaks?" Yes, it absolutely is, but there's a reason for it: the leaker is comparing the CPU directly against Intel's previous-generation Alder Lake Core i9-12900K at that same clock rate. The tests come from a... Read more...
The current expectation in the hardware enthusiast community is that AMD and Intel's next-generation flagship chips are going to be scant percentage points away from each other in the most common benchmarks. That's informed by a number of leaks, including the Geekbench comparison last week as well as this latest leak... Read more...
As AMD has been proudly trumpeting, the just-announced Ryzen 7000 series processors will be the first desktop processors to be fabricated using TSMC's 5N process. These will be the densest pieces of silicon to sit under a fat finstack to date. That means they're probably going to run very hot. As it happens, though... Read more...
Ah, Geekbench. While the benchmark app is occasionally controversial—particularly where comparisons against Apple hardware are involved—it makes for a reasonably solid benchmark with consistent and relevant results, within the same platform. AMD just announced its new line-up of Ryzen 7000 series CPUs and the Ryzen 9... Read more...
Most discussions about Intel's Raptor Lake revolve around the top-end processors and their extreme power consumption, particularly under the rumored "Extreme Performance" mode. Given this emphasis, you might reasonably be concerned about the performance we can expect out of a lower-power Raptor Lake processor. The... Read more...
We probably don't have to explain to you, dear reader, that final retail pricing is one of the most important factors in determining the value of a product. As such, it is one of the primary factors we consider when reviewing hardware. We already saw some early price listings for AMD's next-gen hardware, but now we've... Read more...
For a CPU series as close to launch as the Ryzen 7000 series supposedly is, we've seen scant few leaked benchmarks. We saw a couple of leaks for the six-core Ryzen 5 7600X model, and we also saw a Geekbench result for the Zen 4-based EPYC "Genoa" processor, but our first leaked benchmark result for the Ryzen 7 7700X... Read more...
NVIDIA has so far been completely silent on the topic of its next-generation GeForce cards. As a result, we've only had guesses and rumors to go on when trying to judge when Ada might appear. Now, a new leak of what appears to be a production manifest gives us some idea of when the cards might ship to store... Read more...
Intel is of course releasing a full lineup of Raptor Lake processors when those chips hit the market. Anyone could reasonably infer that we'll see CPUs with Core i3, Core i5, Core i7, and Core i9 branding, but the specifications of those models weren't clear until Bilibili hardware dude ExtremePlayer leaked a list of...

Ashes of the Singularity, which is in fact a video game and not just a benchmark, famously maintains a large benchmark database. That's one of many such lists that Twitter bot @BenchLeaks monitors for unrecognized CPU and GPU results. The bot's tearless retina spotted a result in the Ashes of the Singularity database...

If nothing else, the 7-Zip benchmark makes for an interesting test. That's both because it is a practical benchmark (rather than a synthetic test) and also because it exhibits unusual performance behavior. Regular leaker Raichu (@OneRaichu on Twitter) is coming at us again with another pre-release Raptor Lake leak of... Read more...
Intel's processors include hardware to help with monitoring their own performance. Unsurprisingly, these are known as "Performance Monitoring Units" (PMU). The company releases JSON files that map the raw data provided by the PMUs to human-readable events and has already released one for its 14th-generation Meteor... Read more...
