We're fans of the Ryzen 7 5800X3D around here. Sure, it's pricey for what it is; that much is inarguable. Still, the fact that you can slap a brand-new processor into a two- or three-year-old motherboard and immediately get chart-topping gaming performance is extremely cool. Your author here threw one into his... Read more...
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.

Intel does just fine for itself in terms of gaming performance, but it's impossible to deny the effects that super-large caches have had on competitor AMD's processors. The red team's extant Zen 3 processors were running well behind Intel's Alder Lake chips in gaming, but apparently attaching an extra 64MB of L3 cache... Read more...
AMD's Ryzen 7 5800X3D achieves incredible performance uplifts in certain applications by "simply" adding an extra 64MB of cache onto a Ryzen 7 5800X. We put "simply" in quotes because the vertical die stacking process employed on the chip is still cutting-edge stuff, and AMD had to make significant... Read more...
Um, excuse me Biostar, but when did you become a case mod fanatic? Because holy high octane, your Racing Z690GTA-V8 Overdrive creation is easily one of the coolest PC mods I've ever seen.

If you haven't been keeping up with Windows news, Windows 11 is really trying to be tough on security. As part of that push, one of its major requirements is that your system must have a Trusted Platform Module, or TPM. Historically speaking, that was a physical device on your motherboard that provided an immutable... Read more...
You may have seen the story last week about Der8auer overclocking a Core i5-12400's six cores to 5.2 GHz, or even this morning's story about HiCookie taking a dual-core Pentium Gold chip to 5.8 GHz (from 3.1 GHz) on liquid nitrogen. Both of those stories have one thing in common: they're overclocking Intel 12th-gen... Read more...
Once upon a time, there were two ways to overclock a CPU. Raising the multiplier has been the simplest and easiest option since it came to be, but old hardware nerds like this author will recall the days of raising motherboard front-side bus (FSB) clocks to accelerate memory accesses, as well as goosing the CPU clock...

JEDEC was founded in 1958 as the Joint Electron Device Engineering Council. It originally had two branches: one for semiconductors and one for vacuum tubes. Nowadays, the group is technically known as the Joint Solid State Technology Association, but they didn't change the acronym, probably because "JEDEC" sounds way... Read more...
AMD's current desktop processors with graphics are the Ryzen 5000G series, codenamed Cezanne.
