Intel have announced their 10th Gen Core CPUs. Today, Intel officially launched 11 new, highly integrated 10th Gen Intel® Core™ processors designed for remarkably sleek 2 in 1s and laptops. The processors bring high-performance artificial intelligence (AI) to the PC at scale, feature new Intel® Iris® Plus graphics for stunning entertainment and enable the best connectivity1 with Intel® Wi-Fi 6 (Gig+) and Thunderbolt™ 3. Systems are expected from PC manufacturers for the holiday season. Coverage on Anandtech, HotHardware, PCWorld, TomsHardware and LegitReviews. Discussion towards the end of this thread.

Over on reddit there's an interesting post showing the spike in AMD sales share since Ryzen 3 came out. Reports from Japan and other locations already pointed to fact that the release of 7nm Ryzen was a big success: Same at mindfactory, AMD destroyed Intel this month. Out of 5 CPUs only every fifth was actually from Intel and out of every Euro spent, 75 Cents went to AMD.

PCGamesN look into PCIe 4.0 game load times. PCIe 4.0, or Peripheral Component Interconnect Express specification 4.0 as it’s officially known, was first introduced into the desktop market with AMD Ryzen 3000 CPUs. But, in the wake of this technical advancement, we here at PCGamesN started thinking: does PCIe 4.0 make any difference to game load times?

TechSpot have an article about reasons to upgrade your laptop. It does go beyond just being a list of shopping links so it's worth a look. In addition to year-on-year tweaks to make the latest laptop models more attractive, many technologies that used to be reserved for high-end models have permeated to the mainstream, including much better displays and resolutions, improved hardware efficiency and battery life, and overall better build quality even on lower price points.

They also checked out an OLED laptop display and liked it a lot. Today we're testing a monitor, but it’s not the usual sort of monitor review. Rather, we're looking at a laptop display because it’s super interesting – it’s one of the few OLED laptop screens going around, and from testing this display we can learn a lot about how OLED might be suited to PC displays and how it compares to the LCD panels we’ve been using for a while now.

TechGage meanwhile have a workstation graphics battle between AMD's Radeon Navi and NVIDIA's GeForce SUPER. There are a couple of reasons why you’d still want to consider a Radeon Pro or Quadro over a Radeon or GeForce, but nowadays, that largely has to do with the software in question. If you’re using a high-end CAD suite that focuses its support around workstation-class GPUs, you should probably just suck it up and go that same route to avoid as much potential headache as possible. But for hobbyists or students, gaming cards can fill the void more often than not.
