    Intel DG2 Graphics Card Leakers Suggest Performance Similar to NVIDIA RTX 3070 Ti, AMD RX 6700

    We need a third foundry to address chip shortages.

    Intel 12th Gen Core Alder Lake to Launch Alongside Next-Gen Windows This Halloween

    Yes. However, AMD is 3D stacking chiplets which makes the big.LITTLE approach irrelevant for at least 1 generation. 15% gains, if true, offer AMD an ace up their sleeve. Smaller nodes and power optimizations will offset the advantage of Intel's big.LITTLE design in no time.

    AMD's 2022 Ryzen "Raphael" Zen 4 Processor Packs 20% IPC Gain

    He gets a lot correct because he also gets a lot wrong. He basically puts it all out there and flip-flops on everything. I got fed up and unsubscribed his channel. wccftech and videocardz are by far more reliable than this guy. Kudos to him for finding this gold mine, tho'.

    Intel Tapes in 7nm Meteor Lake Compute Tile

    It's named after the Coffee Lake wetlands in Oregon, 20 miles away from where Intel has a manufacturing facility.

    NVIDIA Adds DLSS Support To 9 New Games Including VR Titles

    From all the DLSS demos I've seen, I get the feeling DLSS renders things at a lower res and then upsample the output... Can someone explain this a little better?

    Intel Core-1800 Alder Lake Engineering Sample Spotted with 16C/24T Configuration

    So does the ID "Alder Lake-S 881" mean 8 big, 8 little, 1 GPU?

    A Sign of the Times: Hong Kong Authorities Dismantle Smuggling Operation... Which Included 300 NVIDIA CMP Cards

    I get that, but Global Semiconductor publishes a paper saying there's 14.9% more sales Feb-to-Feb (that's Revenue, not Volume), which doesn't really translate into paper launches, the way it has done for the GPU makers. Oh well. Here's to the 2022 re-launch of the GTX 1650!

    A Sign of the Times: Hong Kong Authorities Dismantle Smuggling Operation... Which Included 300 NVIDIA CMP Cards

    I'm surprised that the tech community, in particular tech journalists, are yet to unravel why there is a shortage as bad as it currently is. You can point fingers at the "work from home" situation, two strong console launches, freak acts of God, etc..., but wafer starts should be your first...

    Kingston Announces NV1 NVMe PCIe SSD

    That TBW is pretty low... My 1TB Kingston A2000 is 600 TBW, my ADATA SX8200 is 640 TBW... this is... 240 TBW on the 1TB version? Wow. Just wow.

    Intel's Raja Koduri Teases Xe HPG Mesh Shading in Action, A Hint at DirectX 12 Ultimate Readiness?

    Plus 1 for you. While most media people who interview him say he is fantastic and knows what he's doing, based on his past accomplishments, I think he's overhyped.

    AMD Zen 4 Reportedly Features a 29% IPC Boost Over Zen 3

    The problem is that sooner or later AMD becomes as greedy as Intel and realises it has such a performance/technology lead that it can squeeze every last buck from the consumer with minor performance bumps. When confronted with this fact, they will happily point to the fact that "Intel did it...

    Intel Xe DG1 SDV PCB Pictured, Looks Desolate

    Good point. Are we expecting 3rd-party designs? What is Intel's AIB strategy? I'd expect the entire thing to be a flash in a pan and to work miserably as a companion card for Gen 9, 10 and 11 CPUs, to boost iGPU performance. I can't see a single scenario where this would justify taking it to 3rd...

    Intel Xe DG1 SDV PCB Pictured, Looks Desolate

    Apart from not being news... this is an IGP turned into a GPU. Low power, low performance... no need for massive overly-populated PCBs. Did anyone expect anything else?

    Intel Has Fixed its 7 nm Node, But Outsourcing is Still Going to Happen

    I think people should realise that there is a serious mis-reporting issue going on at Intel, where someone down the line is feeding top management some serious bullshit and then things derail. Gelsinger might've read a report about the 7nm health and recovery, but to what extent is this not a...

    MediaTek Launches 6nm Dimensity 1200 Premium 5G SoC

    Is this the TSMC 6nm node? Jeebus. Everyone is sourcing from TSMC. Not only does this result in a bunch of paper launches, but also the fact that one single company holds all of the most advanced fabrication nodes...

    Intel CEO Bob Swan to Step Down Effective February

    Because it could potentially burst Intel's bubble and it's better to preempt these announcements than let Financial Analysts run amok during a phone conference. If this were announced during the financials, it would steal the thunder of any (meager) good news Intel may have. Maybe a little too...

    AMD Radeon Navi 21 XTXH Variant Spotted, Another Flagship Graphics Card Incoming?

    For some reason a reply I gave has not shown up. Must've been a client-side issue, or a PEBCAC. As I suggested in my first comment, I'm referring to the H-series CPUs. I'm deducing the XTXH would be an XTX-class GPU coupled with an H-series CPU (i.e. high-performance mobile). As mobile parts...

    Jim Keller joins Tenstorrent as President and CTO

    I think he's moved to the opposite of Intel. He went from a company where he was given a title, but no control, had to deal with legacy crap through-and-through, to a company where he's literally in charge, decides the direction, and probably doesn't need to care much about the outcome.

    AMD Radeon Navi 21 XTXH Variant Spotted, Another Flagship Graphics Card Incoming?

    XTX is a standard classification for the high-end graphics cards. The "H" is probably just pointing to a high-performance mobile part, like, I dunno... their CPUs?! So XTXH is a mobile high-performance part, which makes sense, since the screen grab says "27W". I think some basic knowledge of...

    Intel Core i9-11900K "Rocket Lake" AotS Benchmark Numbers Surface

    Yet the benchmark table is still lead by an ageing i9 9940X running on a 2080 Ti... Let's just say it: AotS is a CPU benchmark, not a graphics benchmark. What people should be asking is how a 14-core 9940X on a 14nm ++++++ node is still giving AMD a run for its money (mind you, the 9940X is...

    TSMC Completes Its Latest 3 nm Factory, Mass Production in 2022

    A factory is just an empty building until you put manufacturing tools in it. This isn't a "3nm factory". This is a factory which is planned to host 3nm manufacturing tools and produce wafers at that level of etching. Possibly even 450mm wafers instead of 300mm. Likewise for Arizona. It's 5nm...
