From Intel's re-entry into the discrete GPU market to folding laptops, here are the top PC trends that will define 2022

 2022 has been a great year for PC enthusiasts, with NVIDIA introducing the world's most powerful gaming GPU and Intel re-entering the discrete GPU market.

PC enthusiasts had a great year in 2022. The newest GPUs from NVIDIA, AMD, and Intel were announced. In a similar vein, AMD and Intel unveiled their most recent desktop CPUs, providing users who intend to construct a bespoke RIG for personal use, gaming, and professional work.

Intel's discrete GPUs made headlines in 2022, making it a big year for Intel. From the introduction of the Arc graphics card series to the 13th Gen Intel core processors, the company updated its entire processor lineup with the most recent models that are faster and use less power.

Intel introduced CPUs with a higher clock speed and a higher core count with the Raptor Lake series of the 13th generation. The Raptor Lake series of CPUs utilize hybrid architecture with a combination of P (performance) and E (cores), just like the Intel Core CPUs of the 12th Generation. Intel was able to offer enhanced multitasking capabilities thanks to the hybrid CPU system, which intelligently allocated the appropriate type of core to the appropriate task to increase performance per watt coefficient.

The Intel Arc series of dedicated desktop and laptop GPUs surprised everyone. These aren't bad, but they might not be as powerful as the best GPUs from AMD and NVIDIA. For 1080p gaming, GPUs like the Arc A770 and A750, which are in the middle of the market, cost about $350.

The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060's 1080p and 1440p gaming performance was comparable to that of the flagship Arc A770. Even more surprising was the fact that Intel was able to provide satisfactory ray-tracing performance. Although it may not be as good as NVIDIA's counterpart, this is unquestionably something that will enhance the visual quality of games.

AMD also had a long year, surpassing Intel in chip dominance. The RDNA 3-based Radeon RX 7000 series GPUs are as good as NVIDIA's flagship RTX 4000 series, and Zen 4-based Ryzen 7000 series processors have a faster clock speed than ever before.

The Ryzen 7000 series, which is based on the Zen 4-architecture and delivers excellent single-core and multi-core CPU performance, is ideal for both content creation and gaming. With the new stage, the Ryzen 7000 series is additionally the original of computer chips from AMD to help DDR5 memory.

Again, the gaming and thermal performance of the Radeon RX 7900 XTX and RDNA 3-based GPUs are superior. AMD's GPUs are even more appealing to those who are looking for the most value for their money than their NVIDIA counterparts. Their slightly lower price makes them even more appealing.

The RTX 4090 is the most powerful mainstream GPU for gaming, according to new high-performance GPUs from NVIDIA. In terms of size and performance, it has grown larger and improved. The most recent RTX 4000 series of GPUs are based on the most recent Ada Lovelace architecture, so you'll need a bigger case and a new PSU that can handle at least 850W. The more powerful RTX 4090 can offer true 8K gaming and has an HDMI 2.1 port, allowing users to connect the GPU directly to an 8K monitor or television, while the RTX 4080 is designed for mainstream 4K gamers.

NVIDIA's most recent high-performance GPUs are still in high demand, despite their higher price. In the coming days, NVIDIA is likely to announce a few more Ada Lovelace GPUs, such as the RTX 4070 and RTX 4060, that fall into the entry-level and mid-range price ranges.

Bonus: Laptops with folding displays and ARM-based machines will debut in 2022, as will laptops with folding displays from brands like Asus and Lenovo. Laptops with a folding display are also being developed by HP and Samsung, allowing users to carry a laptop with a much larger display by folding it in half.

Mac demonstrated that Arm-based PCs could be comparable to Intel/AMD-controlled scratch pad. As a result, manufacturers such as Qualcomm have announced custom Arm processors for laptops running Windows that are likely to offer longer battery life and more connected features.

More high-end laptops running Windows 11 that are based on Arm and come in a variety of price ranges are likely. In early 2023, it is also anticipated that AMD and NVIDIA will announce their next-generation mobile CPUs and GPUs.
