Do you hear coughing and wheezing sounds coming from your PC? If so, it might be time to finally retire that aging CPU you've been holding onto for such a long time and treat yourself to an upgrade (or a brand new PC build). Other than the videocard situation being what it is (crummy), now is an otherwise good time to... Read more...
The war is on, and consumers are winning. In this CPU battle, the second volley has been sent. The first was the well-received launch of the Intel Alder Lake CPU family. We found the Core i9-12900K and the Core i5-12600K to be impressive desktop processors worthy of our Recommended stamp. However, the competition... Read more...
If you've been wanting to build a new PC this year but managed to put it off up to this point, your patience is about to be rewarded. How so depends on what you're after. Intel's 12th Gen Core 'Alder Lake' CPUs release to retail on Thursday (and some are up for preorder now), if you're wanting to build around the... Read more...
If we had a nickel for every time an Alder Lake processor appeared in a leaked benchmark run, we'd have a lot of nickels. We're not sure exactly how many, but probably enough to weigh our pockets down, at least. Adding to the pile is yet another set of benchmark results, this time with the unreleased Core i7-12700...

Late last week, we thought we struck it big when the popular AMD Ryzen 7 5800X processor fell to a low $396.99 at Amazon. However, Newegg is countering by lowering its price just a tad further, bringing the Ryzen 7 5800X down to just $389.99 after coupon code (87WK4BTS9A). AMD Ryzen 7 5800X 8-Core/16-Thread...

It's the last day of the workweek, and we've gathered a few deals for you on some hot tech products, including the just-announced Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 and Galaxy Watch 4 Classic. In addition, if you're more of an Apple fanboy (or fangirl), there are significant discounts to be had on the Apple Watch Series 6... Read more...
This global chip shortage has been problematic for all of us in the enthusiast community, with this most acute impact being with the availability of graphics cards. However, the shortages have also extended to certain processors, particularly in AMD's Zen 3 family. Fortunately, for those that want a potent Zen 3... Read more...
If you've been itching to build a new PC around Zen 3, or upgrade an existing one, good news—at least one of AMD's latest generation of Ryzen processors is markedly easier to obtain at the moment. There is still a silicon shortage affecting the general landscape (PC processors and graphics cards, as well as the latest... Read more...
Overclocking a CPU used to be a pretty simple process: change a bus speed or a multiplier, set an appropriate voltage, and voila: your Celeron 300A was running at 450 MHz, or your 600 MHz Duron was knocking on the 1 GHz barrier. These days with the advent of dynamic boost speeds and optimized frequency and voltage curves, processors intelligently... Read more...
The age-old battle between AMD and Intel became interesting again when the former launched its Zen architecture in 2017, followed by Zen+ in 2018 and especially Zen 3 earlier this year. For the most part, Zen 3 put AMD ahead of its rival, in terms of overall performance, but will Intel retake the lead when Rocket... Read more...
AMD's Ryzen 5000 family of Zen 3 processors launched last week, and as most were expecting, the reviews were overwhelmingly positive. While AMD didn't take the performance crown in every single benchmark, its lead in the majority of them was significant enough that Intel was seeing taillights the majority of the... Read more...
Are we enjoying the Chip Wars of 2020 yet? Things are just getting started, folks. AMD is talking a big game about Zen 3 and its Ryzen 5000 series, which will debut to retail next week. More than just lip service, multiple leaks suggest AMD has a real winner on its hands. This is evidenced yet again in a validated... Read more...
You have questions, I have questions, we all have questions about AMD's recently announced Ryzen 5000 series, and specifically regarding how actual performance stacks up with the company's claim of a 19 percent IPC (instructions per clock) uplift over the Ryzen 3000 series. Reliable answers will have to wait until the... Read more...
Yowza! AMD made some bold claims during the unveiling of its Ryzen 5000 series, which will land on retail shelves next month. According to AMD, its upcoming Zen 3 chips are "the fastest gaming CPUs in the world," a boast that belonged to Intel up to this point. But is Zen 3 all that and a bag of sea salt and vinegar...

If there is one thing that can make 'Taco Tuesday' even better it's a delicious chip. Or in this case, a chip leak, for what is purported to be an upcoming Zen 3 processor from AMD, which has found its way into the Ashes of the Singularity benchmarking database, where it shows a strong IPC (instructions per clock) gain, and perhaps a new "parallel Read more...
In exactly three weeks, AMD will unveil its Zen 3 lineup during a scheduled press event (October 8), followed by announcing its Radeon RX 6000 series toward the end of next month (October 28). We have questions, and AMD presumably has answers. One of them is what specific processors are on tap, and according to a new... Read more...
