What is the meaning of a CPU socket? Intel and CPU sockets explained.
Intel has released several iterations of architectures with Lake in the name the past few years. We'll decipher them at a high level and clear up confusion.
We list all currently available Intel processors, separated by CPU product line (e.g. Core i5), and divided by generation (e.g. Kaby Lake).
Intel's B250 chipset outshines B150 with increased connectivity and support for faster memory and storage devices. Here is a list of all B250 motherboard's currently available.
Intel's H270 chipset offers increased connectivity and support for faster memory and storage devices. Here is a list of all H270 motherboard's currently available.
Z270 is the top-end consumer chipset for Intel's LGA 1151, and it natively supports Kaby Lake CPUs. Here's a list of all available Z270 motherboards.
We've compiled a listing of all the currently available Intel X99 motherboards for your LGA 2011v3 processor.
We list all motherboards based on Intel's H110 chipset. These boards may not be feature rich, but they still offer a basic platform for Skylake processors.
Z170 is the most feature-rich consumer chipset on the LGA 1151 platform. Here's a list of ITX, ATX and EATX motherboards available now.
Looking to build a Skylake system on a budget? Motherboards based on the new H170 chipset are for you. Here's a list of what's available.
Intel's business-oriented B150 chipset is still a viable solution for low-cost enthusiast builds. Here’s a list of available Mini-ITX, MicroATX, and ATX B150 motherboards.
We test five theoretical Intel CPUs in 10 different DirectX 11-based games to determine what impact core count has on performance.
Learn the pros and cons of overclocking your CPU, the physics behind changing your clock rate and the basics of overclocking an Intel or AMD processor.
Intel's Skylake architecture and corresponding platform represent a huge evolution in connectivity, overclocking and, ultimately, system performance. This resource should help answer any questions you have about the company's current desktop PC design.
Have you ever come up with your own idea for a killer rig? Don't forget to tell us about it on the Tom's Hardware forums. The following ten setups were configured by forum members and chosen as winners in the Q2 2014 BestConfigs Poll.
We've heard it said before that AMD's GPUs are more platform-dependent than Nvidia's. So, what happens when you drop a Radeon and a GeForce into an FX-8350-based system? Does AMD's CPU get in the way of its GPU running as well as it possibly could?
Low-cost, low-power, small form factor PCs are popular right now. With Intel’s Ivy Bridge architecture available in the low-end Pentium family, you can now build a living room gaming PC with discrete graphics to beat any modern console for just over $500.
