Intel's latest generation Alder Lake processors haven't even had time to fully stretch their legs yet, but even so leaks are already starting to point towards what comes next: 13th Gen Raptor Lake. It makes sense when you consider that just last week, Intel CEO Pat Gelsinger doubled down on the chip maker's relentless... Read more...
I distinctly remember when AMD and Intel were racing to 1GHz (yes, I'm old), and in the years to follow, they both continued to push for higher clocks. The focus would later shift to things like multi-core designs, better branch prediction, and more recently piling on as much cache as possible, but chasing higher... Read more...
Intel's current-generation 12th Gen Core-family processors employ DDR5 memory for optimal performance, at least in theory. In practice, a lot of folks building Alder Lake systems are sticking with DDR4 DIMMs instead of the newer standard, because DDR5 memory is in short supply and seriously scalped. Testing has shown...

Barely more than a week ago, we heard through the grapevine that AMD had moved up its plans to launch its Zen 4 CPUs from Q4 of this year to Q3, and possibly as soon as August or July. The only source is frequent Twitter leaker Greymon55, but their information has been accurate many times in the past. Perhaps adding... Read more...
Can you believe it's already been three months since the launch of Intel's Alder Lake CPUs? The lower-power desktop and laptop chips are only just hitting the market, but the high-powered desktop parts launched at the beginning of November, and here we are more than a third of the way through February. Remember, kids:... Read more...
Its name may not come up as often as some of the larger vendors, but Biostar has been around and building motherboards for a long time. As one of the longer-lived hardware OEMs, Biostar certainly knows the score when it comes to new product announcements: don't preempt first-tier silicon partners, like Intel. That... Read more...
Even after all of our refinements to the technologies; even despite innumerable advancements, the single biggest bottleneck for superior CPU performance is still simply getting data into and out of the CPU. That fact was brought into sharp focus with the release of AMD's Zen 2 CPUs, which offered drastically-improved... Read more...
Never mind that Alder Lake is just now beginning to get its feet wet in the consumer space, it's never too early to look at what is next. And what is next (barring a surprise shift in Intel's roadmap) is Raptor Lake. Perhaps suggesting that everything is on track for a 13th Gen Core processor launch next year, a... Read more...
A patent application filed by Intel suggests its next-gen Raptor Lake processors could implement a rather clever mechanism to reduce power usage by as much as 25 percent. Intel actually filed the patent back in January of 2020, but what it describes is not present on its 12th Gen Core Alder Lake processors that... Read more...
It seems a little funny to already be talking about Raptor Lake when Alder Lake has only just arrived to retail. But that's how the beat of the technology drum goes. So what do we know about Raptor Lake? It's expected to be a less dramatic architectural upgrade next round, and will in all likelihood even retain... Read more...
It has been a little bit since Intel launched a new high-end desktop (HEDT) lineup, the last one being Cascade Lake-X, which debuted in late 2019. Now with Alder Lake set to arrive in the coming weeks, could another round of Core-X processors be on the horizon? If the latest leak is true, the answer is yes, though... Read more...
Some more details came to light about Alder Lake during the Intel Architecture Day 21 event, including a bit of a deeper dive into the hybrid architecture with three high-speed interconnect fabrics to tie together I/O, memory, and compute. What Intel unsurprisingly did not discuss is Alder Lake's successor, Raptor... Read more...
Alder Lake is not even out yet (soon, though), but that has not stopped the leak train from cruising down the tracks towards what comes after. We are of course talking about Intel's eventual 13th Gen Core processors, otherwise known as Raptor Lake. To that end, some interesting information about Raptor Lake's power... Read more...
Intel Accelerated took place yesterday, during which CEO Pat Gelsinger laid out a roadmap for the process technologies that will form the basis of its future processors (and those of its customers). Unfortunately, one interesting tidbit of the presentation that we didn't get a chance to bring significant attention to... Read more...
This past March, Intel gave us some insight into its upcoming 12th generation Alder Lake and 13th generation Raptor Lake processor platforms. Technical documents on Intel's website provided an "overview of high-level compatibility guidance between Alder Lake S and Raptor Lake S" for its customers. This weekend... Read more...
The second half of this year and especially 2022 are going to be exciting times, with all kinds of product launches on tap. Intel will be releasing its first discrete graphics card for gaming (Xe-HPG DG2), and both AMD and Intel are readying new platforms, with eventual support for next-gen technologies like DDR5...

Heterogeneous CPU architectures could underpin the future of x86 computing, with Intel giving it a go starting with Alder Lake later this year followed by Raptor Lake sometime after, and AMD rumored to be following suit further down the line with Zen 5. As we wait for the hybrid party to begin in earnest, there is... Read more...
Just over two weeks ago, we got our first look at what was assumed to be Intel's future 13th generation Raptor Lake-S processor family. An alleged roadmap leaked, showing Raptor Lake arriving in 2022 after Intel's 12th generation Alder Lake-S family. Today, we're getting official confirmation from Intel courtesy of... Read more...
A supposed CPU roadmap from Intel has leaked to the web, with references to Rocket Lake (desktop), Tiger Lake (mobile), Alder Lake (desktop and mobile), and Raptor Lake (desktop and mobile). The latter entry is the most interesting of the bunch, because it is the only codename that Intel has not officially... Read more...
