  • Intel's hybrid 12th-gen chips are a major strike against AMD

    1 month ago - By Engadget

    We've been hearing about Intel's powerful hybrid chips for so long , they've achieved almost mythical status. The idea behind them is intriguing: they feature both performance-cores and and efficient-cores on a single die, giving you chips that can be beefy and a bit more power-conscious, depending on the task. Previously, all of Intel's CPU cores were pretty much the same, which led to the energy-hungry designs we've seen over the last few years. Now the company is ready to launch those chips, previously codenamed "Alder Lake," as its 12th-gen desktop processors. And maybe, just maybe...
