Application performance obviously uses hardware speed as a baseline, but software optimizations are ultimately where large gains can be realized. It's not uncommon for developers to make an application run five, ten, twenty, or even a hundred times fastersomething you'll never do by replacing the hardware. Intel has... Read more...
There were a whole bunch of brand-new laptops at Computex sporting fresh AMD and Intel silicon, but of course, con-goers aren't supposed to put hands on them, run benchmarks, and upload them to the internet. So we didn'tbut a few naughty attendees did, and today we're looking at one such "leak" from a user on Bilibili... Read more...
It's midnight right now in your author's native Texas, but it's only 1:00 PM in Taiwan, and not long before, AMD wrapped up the opening keynote for this year's Computex Taipei. We've already covered numerous announcements made during the keynote, including the Ryzen 9000 desktop CPUs, the Ryzen AI 300 mobile... Read more...
It's hard to remember now, but the original AMD Ryzen processors topped out at "just" 8 cores. The Ryzen 3000 family came along in 2019 with the Ryzen 9 branding and the first sixteen-core desktop CPUs. Even in the enterprise market, 16 CPU cores can be overkill. However, you can't just go buying consumer PC hardware... Read more...
We're fast approaching Computex Taipei 2024, where AMD is broadly expected to announce its next-generation processors based on the Zen 5 architecture. However, the combined efforts of leaker Everest and veteran programmer InstLatX64 may have revealed some fascinating details about the company's next-next CPUs, based... Read more...
The Aurora supercomputer at the Argonne National Laboratory, powered by Intels Xeon Max series of processors, is the new AI king with the ability to reach 10.6 AI exaflops of compute. On top of taking the AI crown, it also managed to break the exascale barrier, hitting 1.012 exaflops for scientific applications. The... Read more...
AMD's Ryzen 9 desktop processors include two "Core Complex Dice", or "CCDs", which is to say that the processors' 12 or 16 CPU cores are spread across two pieces of silicon. The company's top 3D V-Cache-equipped CPU, the Ryzen 9 7950X3D, is known for only including 3D V-Cache on one of its two CCDs. In theory, this... Read more...
Zen 5 hype is building as we edge ever closer to Computex, when AMD is expected to announce new processors based on its next-generation CPU architecture. From reliable leaks, we already know a fair bit about the chips that AMD will be creating based around Zen 5, but our only leak about the actual naming of the final... Read more...
As the era of AI computing begins to unfold in earnest, AMD was able to achieve record sales in its data center business, which grew a whopping 80% year-over-year to $2.34 billion in the first quarter of 2024 (and a more modest 2% sequentially). The big uptick in data center dollars helped AMD weather declining sales... Read more...
Normally we wouldn't report on something like this, because ultimately "some guy on a forum said a thing" isn't exactly newsworthy on its own. However, in this case, the poster in question is Kepler_L2, a well-known fellow who frequently shares insider information and astute analysis of upcoming hardware, particularly... Read more...
It's been a year and a half since AMD launched its Socket AM5 platform and its Zen 4 desktop processors, so the time is nigh for a new generation. Most people are expecting AMD to announce its second series of Socket AM5 processors at Computex in May, and then launch them not long after. There's a new piece of... Read more...
It's well known among enthusiasts that AMD's Ryzen processors benefit tremendously from high memory clocks, especially in multi-threaded applications. This isn't down to the memory bandwidth increase (although that can help), but more about the increased clock rate for the CPU's Infinity Fabric. That means that the... Read more...
AMD currently sells processors utilizing "standard" and "dense" (or "compact") cores, including some chips that have both. The "dense" cores are indicated with a "c" at the end, like "Zen 4c", and they have all the same capabilities as the standard cores, but typically run lower clocks because the tight spacing makes...

AMD Ryzen and EPYC processors are vulnerable to some serious security exploits, so you should be quick about slapping the latest system firmware into your board's BIOS. Head to your system vendor or motherboard maker's website to make sure you've got the latest firmware for your Ryzen rig or EPYC... Read more...
AMD's current-generation Ryzen 7000 desktop processors came out in September of 2022. That's over 16 months ago. Intel's gearing up to launch its own Arrow Lake second-generation tiled processors on the desktop, and naturally, AMD is readying its competitor: the Zen 5 architecture and the CPUs bearing it, likely to be...

It took a minute or two, but x86 processor shipments appear to be recovering from a recent slump. According to data shared with us by Mercury Research, x86 chip shipments increased year-over-year for the first time in 24 months, with both desktop and laptop CPU shipments either growing at or exceeding normal seasonal...

Every application presents a given workload, and disparate discrete GPUs are typically capable of computing and completing that workload at various performance levels. With that understanding, why not use multiple GPUs for the same application? The answer, of course, is that you canit just depends on the specific... Read more...
All things considered, AMD ended its fiscal year on a high note with its fourth quarter (of 2023) revenue coming in at $6.2 billion, for a quarterly profit of $667 million. For the full year, AMD reported revenue of $22.7 billion, with net income tallying $854 million. The figures are largely the result of impressive... Read more...
Zen 5 hasn't even arrived yet, but of course AMD is hard at work on designing the next generation after it. According to serial leaker Everest (@Olrak29_ on Twitter), the codename for consumer Zen 6 processorsanalogous to "Raphael" for consumer Zen 4 processors and "Granite Ridge" for consumer Zen 5 processorswill be...

During the ongoing Steam Winter Sale, Valve just published its list of the "Best of 2023", which is not to be confused with the Steam Awards. Instead, this list compiles the year's games in general order of gross revenue, many of which are available with deep discounts. This data is particularly neat to see because... Read more...
AMD CPU overclocker Bill Alverson, who goes by the handle Sampson, set several CPU performance records on Wednesday with his overclockedThreadripper Pro 7995WX. The 96-core processor is based on AMD's Genoa family, which also powers the regular Threadripper 7000 lineup and 4th Generation EPYC CPUs. These... Read more...
