In our latest episode of 2.5 Geeks, we cover Intel and AMD's beefiest, baddest processors that were announced this month for desktop PCs and the data center, including Sapphire Rapids, AMD EYPC Genoa, and the Core i9-13900KS. We also discuss the best we saw at CES 2023... Show Notes: 00:00 Countdown Begins 05:00... Read more...
Hardware vulnerabilities are never fun, especially when actively exploited in the wild. Forward-looking companies try to get ahead of bad actors by encouraging responsible disclosure and awarding bug bounties.AMD has worked with security researchers who recently found numerous desktop and server/data center...

Hot on the heels of Intel formally unveiling its 4th Gen Xeon Scalable processors (otherwise known as Sapphire Rapids), SK hynix is pounding its chest over having obtained the industry's first validation for '1anm' DDR5 DRAM on Intel's latest server platform. From SK hynix's vantage point, this is a "monumental"... Read more...
Intel is launching its 4th Gen Xeon Scalable Processors (codename Sapphire Rapids) today, along with the Xeon CPU Max Series (codename Sapphire Rapids HBM) for datacenter customers. The company has been slowly disclosing information since its Innovation 2022 event, but now the veil is lifted on the entire4th Gen Xeon... Read more...
AMD's RDNA 3 GPU architecture found in the Radeon RX 7900 family of graphics cards was a tremendous leap in performance over the previous generation found in the Radeon RX 6000 series. Therefore, it only stands to reason that the next generation of AMD's high-performance and adaptive computing accelerators would... Read more...
The state of the HEDT market has been pretty bleak the last few years. AMD's Threadrippers went PRO-only, while Intel's been letting its high-end customers languish on the Cascade Lake-X platform that's still rocking the old Skylake core design at its heart. The blue team has new workstation processors on the way, but... Read more...
Usually when the topic of Moore's Law comes up, it's either Intel extolling its continued relevance and focus (like Pat Gelsinger vowing to exhaust the periodic table to keep Moore's Law alive), or NVIDIA declaring it is dead as it did (again) just a few weeks ago. But where does AMD stand on the observation made by... Read more...
The latest rankings are in for the Top500 list of the 500 fastest supercomputers in the world, and Oak Ridge National Laboratory's Frontier system powered by AMD EPYC hardware is still in front of the pack. That's not surprising, given that Frontier took pole position when it went online just shy of six months... Read more...
AMD has just officially launched its 4th generation of EPYC server CPUs. Codenamed Genoa, these EPYC 9004 series processors are built using the same Zen 4 DNA powering the company’s Ryzen 7000 series of consumer desktop CPUs. The central story behind these processors is the same as... Read more...
Lately, Intel faces stiff competition in what have traditionally been its strongest markets: data center and the enterprise. NVIDIA muscled in on Intel's territory a long time ago with its powerful GPU compute accelerators, but now the green team is pushing its own CPUs along with its GPUs. On the other side, it has...

Intel's upcoming Sapphire Rapids 4th Gen Xeon server CPUs, expected to compete with AMD's upcoming Epyc Zen 4 processors, are not even released yet. However, the company is already looking further ahead with Granite Rapids, Intel's 6th Gen Xeon platform, which is likely in the pipeline for 2023 or 2024. At... Read more...
Powerball is a lottery drawing that's done in nearly ever state in the US. Like most lotteries, it has hilariously low chances of winning, but big payouts if you do. Well, nobody won the $1.2 billion Powerball last night. That means the value has now grown to some $1.5 billion US dollars, or about half that if you... Read more...
AMD didn't quite meet its revenue target for its fiscal third quarter of 2022, though it did still manage to post a 29 percent year-over-year gain to $5.6 billion. Half of that ($2.3 billion) was recorded as a profit, which is a gain of 13 percent from the same quarter a year ago. In a statement, AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su... Read more...
Following the launch of its Ryzen 7000 series desktop processors for consumers, AMD will soon unveil its first EPYC server chips based on the same underlying Zen 4 architecture. How soon? Less than three weeks from nowAMD announced it will livestream its next-generation EPYC server CPU launch on November... Read more...
We're blending together a couple of leaks today, both because they inform each other, and because that's just how we roll. A curious result found in the Einstein@Home database seems to be for an unreleased Threadripper CPU. A separate AMD roadmap leak from a conference in Indonesia doesn't have a lot of new...

This afternoon at Intel Innovation 2022 in San Jose, Intel offered a sneak peek of the capabilities of the on-board accelerators of its forthcoming 4th Generation Xeon Processor family, known as Sapphire Rapids. In fact, we were treated to a hands-on Intel 4th Gen Xeon Accelerator Experience today, to watch Sapphire... Read more...
The Ryzen 7 5800X3D is a fascinating product. Cache capacity is a specification largely ignored by enthusiasts for many years, and yet the extra 64 MB of L3 cache is what allows the 5800X3D to best its higher-clocked sibling in games. AMD's announced Zen 4 CPUs don't include models with 3D V-Cache, but we've heard... Read more...
We always caution folks against putting too much stock in manufacturer numbers. Companies always want their product to look like the best, right? Now, AMD's been pretty honest after getting burned by spurious marketing in the past, but recentRyzen 7000 numbers look pretty darn good. So, what's the catch? We won't... Read more...
For a CPU series as close to launch as the Ryzen 7000 series supposedly is, we've seen scant few leaked benchmarks. We saw a couple of leaks for the six-core Ryzen 5 7600X model, and we also saw a Geekbench result for the Zen 4-based EPYC "Genoa" processor, but our first leaked benchmark result for the Ryzen 7...

Enthusiasts and gamers are eagerly awaiting the next generation of Ryzen processors based on the Zen 4 architecture. However, server folks are really excited about Zen 4 too. AMD's EPYC "Genoa" family of processors are looking to be a big step up over the current "Milan" generation. Twitter leaker @yuuki_ans... Read more...
You've probably heard that tech companies have stopped hiring lately. This is true of Apple and Google, but it's not universal. AMD is hiring, and even building a new campus for its Radeon Technology Group division. Older hardware enthusiasts will remember that the Radeon Technology Group started life as Array... Read more...
Did you see our post earlier about the purported delays for midrange and high-end GeForce 4000-series cards? Well, not content with laying out release windows for most of the impending hardware that's on the way, Twitter-leakster Greymon55 also had something to say about "Raphael-X". What is that, you may... Read more...
