In this episode of The Full Nerd, Gordon Ung, Brad Chacos,Â Alaina Yee, and Adam Patrick Murray wade deep into the latest Intel CPU rumorsâ€”grab those grains of saltâ€”before chatting with yâ€™all for a while.
Early leaks of Intelâ€™s next-gen mobile processors suggest theyâ€™ll be called 11th-gen Core. Which makes sense, as the current generation is called 10th-gen Core, but branding consistency is something thatâ€™s been sorely lacking from Nvidia and AMD in recent years. Then we dissect leaked info about Intelâ€™s 10th-gen desktop chips, which are rumored to be revealed this month and launched in May. They look damned fastâ€”and maybe damned hot, too. Will a 5.3GHz upgrade of Intelâ€™s aging 14nm process be enough to knock 3rd-gen Ryzen CPUs off their pedestal? We prognosticate.
