Regular HH readers may recall that Saturday before last, we reported on a rumor regarding the existence of processors based on Zen 4 CPU cores that slot into extant AM4 motherboards. Frequent leaker Greymon55 suggested that such a thing is possible, but admitted that he wasn't sure of the veracity of the... Read more...
It's been rumored for a long time that AMD's next-generation Radeons will use a chiplet design rather than being a single monolithic processor. AMD confirmed as much to the world at its Financial Analyst Day earlier this month, but we still didn't know exactly what that meant for the chips. After all, when we say... Read more...
Apple's Mac Studio is here and we've pitted it against Intel's powerful Dragon Canyon NUC small form factor PC. Which one is faster? What does power consumption look like? Join us as we talk PC vs Mac, along with AMD's recent Zen 4/5 and Radeon roadmap announcements, revisiting the Ryzen 6000 powered ASUS G14 laptop... Read more...
The world's most powerful supercomputer dedicated to astronomy simulations was recently used to simulate the formation of a cluster of baby stars. Astronomers at the National Astronomical Observatory of Japan (NAOJ) developed the new code in order to accurately simulate how clusters of baby stars form and evolve... Read more...
If you thought AMD would only talk about dollars and cents at its Financial Analyst Day event, think again. Sure, AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su shared plenty of data on TAM growth opportunities and ongoing investments, but its all predicated on a wide-ranging portfolio of compute and graphics products for both consumer and data...

Supercomputing changed in the late 90s. It used to be that the biggest and fastest computers were all completely custom jobs, with proprietary everything and exotic hardware running esoteric architectures. In the late-90s, someone figured out that you could achieve supercomputer performance on some tasks simply by... Read more...
AMD just disclosed its Q1 financial results and revealed some interesting details regarding future products, including previously unannounced Zen 4-based Dragon Range and Phoenix mobile processors. The latest financial news was all good for AMD, with record revenue and growth across multiple business units. There... Read more...
Hardware enthusiasts will already know, but for anyone who doesn't, the performance of AMD's extant Ryzen platforms is seriously impacted by the transfer rate of the system RAM. It's not actually the memory bandwidth that matters for most tasks; instead, it's because the speed of the "Infinity Fabric" is linked... Read more...
Did you check our review of the Ryzen 7 5800X3D? If you're new to all this PC hardware business, the short version is that AMD took one of its extant Ryzen 7 5800X CPUs, slightly reduced the clock speed, and then bolted on an extra 64 MB of L3 cache by attaching an extra die to the top of the CPU complex, with...

AMD's next big consumer products will be Zen 4-based Ryzen 7000 series desktop CPUs, as confirmed at CES. Those chips were claimed to arrive in late Q3 of this year, and it looks like they're well on track for that time frame. The latest scuttlebutt seems to indicate that the chips stand on the precipice of mass... Read more...
When Intel launched its desktop Alder Lake processors last year, it handily claimed the gaming performance crown. The Golden Cove architecture in Alder Lake's Performance cores is extremely powerful, and those processors have a considerable single-threaded performance advantage over AMD's Zen 3 chips. AMD's Zen 4... Read more...
If you, like this author, are focused more on the consumer side of things, you may not know that AMD's EPYC server CPUs actually use the same Core Complex Dice (CCDs) as its desktop Ryzen and Threadripper CPUsEPYC just gets more of them, along with a beefier I/O chiplet (cIOD). So saying, whatever CPU... Read more...
Following up on its launch of the Ryzen 7 5800X3D in the consumer sector, AMD today unveiled its 3rd Gen EPYC "Milan-X" processors for the data center with similar stacked 3D V-cacheenhancements and chip packaging technology. Compared to its non-stacked 3rd Gen EPYC processors, AMD is claiming up to a... Read more...
Enthusiasts, power users, and professionals in need of more compute muscle have been patiently awaiting another round of Threadripper. The wait is now overAMD today unveiled its Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5000 WX series, a burly stack of high-end desktop (HEDT) chips based on its Zen 3 architecture built to accelerate... Read more...
Do you know about Sapphire Rapids? If you're someone who fiddles about with servers for their day job, you almost assuredly are waiting with bated breath for Intel's upcoming high-end processors. However, if you're Joe Gamer, or an overclocking enthusiast, you may not be as informed about the forthcoming datacenter... Read more...
Once again, Intel ended another year (2021) with the highest overall CPU market share and retained its lead in each individual category (desktop, mobile, and server). But as has been the case since AMD introduced its original Zen architecture, the gap continues to tighten. There's still a wide gulf between the two... Read more...
In case you haven't been following high-performance computing (HPC) news, NVIDIA is sort of ruling the roost lately. Its massively-parallel processing engines like GV100 and GA100 are the fastest chips around for computing many types of crunchy math operations, big data analytics, AI etc. They achieve that supreme... Read more...
If AMD is in the rear view mirror (arguable), that's only because it keeps making pit stops to collect more money from skyrocketing Zen 3 and RDNA 2 sales. So says the company's latest earnings report. AMD capped off a record year with $4.8 billion in revenue during the fourth quarter, which pushed its full-year... Read more...
NVIDIA sells a huge parallel processor called A100. This is based on a gigantic Ampere-architecture processor called GA100, an 826 mm chip. That makes it expensive to manufacture and power-thirsty to operate, but by all accounts it delivers on performance. It's actually the second of such massive monolithic processors... Read more...
When AMD announced the Ryzen 7 5800X3D at CES 2022, a lot of people were surprised that the company appears to only be launching a single Ryzen SKU with its staked 3D V-Cache technology. That's partially because the company had already demonstrated 3D V-Cache using a Ryzen 9 5950X, and partially because we know AMD... Read more...
There wasn't any talk of AMD's eventual next-generation EPYC stack at the Consumer Electronics Show, and we didn't really expect there to be any. However, AMD has talked about its future server CPUs codenamed Genoa before. Between what AMD has said and various leaks and rumors, we have at least some kind of... Read more...
AMD is going all-in with chip stacking technologies, like the stacked 3D V-cache that is headed to its refreshed Zen 3 processors for a claimed 15 percent performance boost, and also its 3rd Gen EPYC processors with an even bigger performance uplift. But what about on the GPU side? A patent application may shed... Read more...
