DailyTech is an online daily publication of technology news, founded by ex-AnandTech editor Kristopher Kubicki on January 1, 2006. The site features a prominent "comments" section that acts as the forums for the publication. Users are able to moderate or respond to each post, a template the editor admits borrowing from Slashdot. The operating revenue for DailyTech is primarily dependent on advertising, with syndication of their news feed also providing some revenue.
The website is split up into two sections: "news" and "blogs." Both appear on the front page, though blogs are sectioned off and declared differently in the title. News content on the site primarily consists of computer-related hardware news, but also includes a variety of science, defense and consumer-tech information.
The schism between DailyTech and AnandTech occurred in goodwill, with the goal of establishing DailyTech as a news site that would not be bound by the NDAs that AnandTech has signed. Anand Lal Shimpi is frequently quoted and featured on DailyTech; however, the two publications compete against each other for readership, despite AnandTech featuring a feed of news articles in a side bar. The DailyTech news feed is also used by other technology and science websites.
DailyTech combines blog-style news with industry interviews and frequent roadmap leaks. The DailyTech editor has a frequent history of run-ins with writers from other publications. He has publicly denounced the writings from competitor Tom's Hardware, Gizmodo, HardOCP, The Inquirer  and DigiTimes. However, the site owners do not censor comments.

DailyTech has consistently leaked several generations of GPUs and CPUs. The company attributes this to the standing instruction that DailyTech writers are not allowed to sign disclosure agreements or embargoes.
On June 5, 2007, the site published a report on the levels of corruption present at other technology news and review websites. 7 out of 35 site polled accepted some kind of advertising-for-content exchange.
On April 24, 2007, DailyTech leaked performance and specification details of the ATI R600 GPU; Radeon HD 2900 XT. This was followed by the declaration that ATI's defunct Radeon HD 2900 XTX was "doomed," following further benchmarks.
On November 3, 2006, DailyTech detailed performance of the NVIDIA G80 GPU, supposedly several weeks before the embargo. One week prior, DailyTech also leaked the specifications for the card, several weeks before the embargo lift.
