AMD continues to add more server feathers to its cap courtesy of its Zen 2 CPU architecture, which is the driving force behind its 2nd generation EPYC "Rome" processors. One of those feathers is Dell—it announced five new PowerEdge platforms powered by EPYC, each one designed from the group-up and optimized to support... Read more...
We are no longer on the cusp of Wi-Fi 6 (otherwise known as 802.11ax) connectivity -- it has arrived -- just not in earnest yet. It will take some time before the Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac) standard is truly shoved aside in favor of the new kid on the block, the one that is faster and more adept at juggling multiple wireless devices simultaneously....

Gigabyte is rolling out the big guns in the server sector, with a new family of products built around AMD's mighty EPYC 7002 "Rome" processors. As we have already seen on the desktop, the underlying Zen 2 CPU architecture is stout. Data centers are where companies like AMD enjoy higher margins, though, and AMD is off... Read more...
AMD has officially taken the wraps off its second generation EPYC 7002 series processors. The EPYC 7002 series builds upon the success of the original EPYC processors by leveraging the Zen 2 microarchitecture, which is also at the heart of the recently released Ryzen 3000 series desktop parts. EPYC 7002 series... Read more...
It is widely known that Zen 2 is on the horizon, with a new generation of processors likely to be announced at Computex later this month. AMD has not kept this a secret. In fact, AMD recently reiterated that Zen 2 products will ship in the third quarter of this year, including both consumer desktop (Ryzen 3000 series)... Read more...
While virtual and augmented (VR and AR) reality hasn't taken off in the consumer space in a big way, its hardware and technologies are still being driven, but mostly with a focus on enterprise use as of late. Microsoft unveiled its HoloLens 2 augmented reality headset at MWC 2019 in February. The software giant was... Read more...
AMD's rise back to prominence in the high-end CPU space has been partly (wait for it)...EPYC. That of course refers to AMD's efforts on the server side of the equation, where its EPYC processors are posing a formidable challenge to rival Intel's stronghold on the market. Little by little, however, AMD has been... Read more...
AMD has managed to reassert itself in the enthusiast computing discussion, thanks to its current gen Zen CPU and, to a lesser extent, Vega GPU architectures. Between Ryzen and Threadripper, there are now many compelling non-Intel options for power users. This also applies to the server side of the equation as well... Read more...
AMD has gone on record saying it's "betting big on 7 nanometers" and the innovations that come with it. One of its upcoming 7nm products is "Rome," a next-generation Epyc processor that will be the world's first 7nm datacenter CPU, with increased instructions per clock (IPC) throughput and a big overall performance...

There's no question that Intel has held a stranglehold on the enterprise CPU market with its family of Xeon processors. However, that all began to change last year with the introduction of AMD's first Zen-based EPYC processors which offered impressive performance at eyebrow-raising price points for potential...

Back in August, during SIGGRAPH, AMD announced the latest addition to its professional graphics card line-up, the Radeon Pro WX 8200. Like its predecessors, the Radeon Pro WX 8200 features the distinctive YInMn blue signature color of other Radeon Pro WX cards and is geared towards content creators and creative... Read more...
Given the industry-wide panic that was unleashed following the disclosure of the Meltdown and Spectre processor vulnerabilities (with Intel taking the brunt of the heat), many are on edge about the potential for similar exploits to be discovered in other products. Unfortunately, for those that are running AMD's... Read more...
AMD is getting out in front of the impending influx of CES-related announcements and unveiling a number of upcoming chip products for the new year. After ramping 10 new product lines in 2017 -- if you consider its entire breadth of CPUs, GPUs, and semi-custom APUs -- AMD is readying more new and/or updated products... Read more...
As part of AMD's comeback tour into the high-end market sector, it released new CPU and GPU architectures, Zen and Vega respectively. And with Zen, AMD has been focused on attacking every market sector, including mainstream desktops (Ryzen 3/5/7), high-end desktops (Threadripper), mobile (Ryzen 5 Mobile, or Raven... Read more...
