What just happened? It's only been a few days since the Core i9-13900K was released but Swedish overclocker Elmor has already used it to break the record for the highest clock speed ever reached (and validated): an incredible 8812.85 MHz.
Not wanting to give up the performance crown after finally winning it back, Intel has been saving the very best 12900K silicon they could produce, binning it for a KS model that clocks higher.
Intel Core i9-12900KS launches April 5; Maingear announces PCs packing "the world's fastest desktop processor"
The Core i9-12900HK is Intel's most recent and fastest CPU for laptops. In this review we'll be pitting it up against a range of other mobile chips, including the beast that is the Apple M1 Pro.
Leak shows overclocking Intel's Core i9-12900K Alder Lake CPU to 5.2 GHz turns it into a cutting-edge space heater
Early benchmarks show how Intel's Core i9-12900K is coming after the Ryzen 9 5950X's performance crown
The Core i9-11980HK is the top processor in Intel's mobile stack, so let's find out how it performs against Ryzen 9 and the more mainstream Core i7-11800H which is often available in the same systems.
Usually it's the flagship CPU grabbing the headlines, but frankly, the Core i9-11900K at a list price of $540, simply doesn't stand a chance. But because you'll want to know where it stands, here we are.
Intel 10th-gen Core CPUs get big price cuts: would you pick more cores or better single thread performance?
For today's article we'll be once again looking at many benchmark graphs filled with RTX 3080 data, though this one is going to be a little different. While we're benchmarking the new GeForce RTX 3080, it won't be the main focus of our attention but rather we'll be looking deeper into CPU performance.
