Leaked Geekbench results of Intels upcoming Raptor Lake Refresh Core i5-14600KF have surfaced online, showing drastically superior multi-core performance compared to the previous generation i5-13600K despite the fact that the 14600K/KF has the same core count as its predecessor. According to the benchmark results, the... Read more...
Micron just put out a press release crowing about its latest achievement: 8-high HBM3 Gen2 memory stacks with up to 24GB of capacity and a 50% improvement in per-pin transfer rate over extant HBM3. That raises the data rate to 9.2 Gbps, which sounds low until you realize that we're talking about massively-parallel... Read more...
Memory overclocking performance has historically been a weak point of AMD's Ryzen processors. This is true even on Socket AM5; where Intel-based DDR5 rigs can hit 7000, 8000, all the way up to the world record of 11,202 MT/s, AMD systems tend to struggle to get much past 6000 MT/s. On the Socket AM4 platform... Read more...
ASRock's Taichi series of motherboards have historically been fantastic pieces of hardware. Your author's main personal PC is based on an ASRock X570 Taichi motherboard, and it's been rock-solid and feature-filled through two different CPU upgrades since its release in mid-2019. However, your author does... Read more...
Did you think that the Ryzen 5 5600X3D would be the last Socket AM4 CPU? We did too, and we were sure we were right. As it happens, there are two more AMD CPUs headed to the last-generation socket, although they're not exactly "new". Despite their familiar origins, though, it was hard to pin down exactly what...

ASUS has shown off a new hybrid graphics accelerator and storage PCIe Gen4 card on Chinas equivalent of YouTube. GM of ASUS China, Tony Wu, took to Bilibili this weekend to share a concept design which melds an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4060 Ti and an M.2 SSD expansion card. If you have read our review of the GeForce RTX... Read more...
For folks building PCs on an extremely tight budget, the current-generation platforms from both AMD and Intel are still pretty expensive. Socket AM4 systems can be had for half the price or less, and they still offer great performance in games and productivity applications. Of course, the fan favorite AM4 CPU for... Read more...
Gigabyte looks set to be the first vendor to launch a Mini-ITX form factor motherboard featuring the AMD A620 chipset. This new board will enable the most compact of budget AM5 builds using Ryzen 7000 processors (Zen 4) up to 65W. Please remember that you wont be able to indulge in CPU overclocking or enjoy...

If you follow hardware news at all, you are surely aware of the "exploding CPU" issue surrounding the Ryzen 7 7800X3D and certain Socket AM5 motherboards, particularly (but not exclusively) those from the ASUS ROG family. If you're not familiar, that's basically the gist of it right there: certain... Read more...
If you follow tech news at all, you're almost certainly already aware of the much-publicized issue where certain AMD motherboards, when configured a certain way, can very literally cause the Socket AM5 CPU to explode, destroying the CPU and possibly damaging the motherboard, too. AMD's already issued a new... Read more...
If you're just joining us, the actual silicon that will comprise Intel's 14th-generation processors has been in question for a while now. Leaked roadmaps have indicated that Intel has both disaggregated Meteor Lake processors on the way, as well as a refresh of its extant Raptor Lake processors. It's been theorized... Read more...
AMD has issued a statement addressing the alarming reports of dead Ryzen 7000X3D processors in relation to burned motherboard sockets and bulging CPU pin pads. The statement confirms AMD is actively investigating the problem and urges anyone who has been impacted by it to contact AMD customer support. AMD's... Read more...
For a long time, your choice of motherboard has had very little impact on your CPU's performance. That's changed recently with the growing popularity of >150W CPUs; buying a cheapo mobo could sharply limit your CPU's clocks due to the manufacturer having skimped on the power delivery hardware. Thankfully, that doesn't... Read more...
You should always be cautious about where and how you obtain BIOS updates for your devices, though that's especially true right now for anyone who owns a product from MSI, be it a motherboard, graphics card, or any other hardware with firmware. That's because MSI recently suffered a cyberattack on part of its... Read more...
AMD's Ryzen "X3D" processors are created by very literally attaching a second piece of silicon that is almost entirely L3 cache memory to the top of a regular Ryzen processor die, just like the picture above implies. It is the central slab atop the wider CCD. This second chip, known as the "3D V-Cache"... Read more...
Going for a budget model of any product means making compromises: budget autos skimp on creature comforts and cargo room, budget motels eschew extra services (and often cleanliness), and budget motherboards usually miss out on premium features like surround sound audio, extra high-speed connectivity, or even...

Memory bandwidth isn't that big of a deal on desktop platforms. Client tasks like office work, web browsing, and even computer games are usually much more sensitive to memory latency than memory performance, which is why AMD sees such huge gains in gaming from its 3D V-Cache technology. Server and HPC tasks can be... Read more...
You probably know Gigabyte most as a motherboard vendor, but it has a whole server arm known relatively recently as "Giga Computing." As part of an announcement for new Ryzen-based server systems, Giga Computing put out a press release that includes the following text: It starts out innocently enough; AMD... Read more...
AMDs first true entry-level AM5 motherboard has been pictured, carrying the all-new A620 chipset. The motherboard featured is known as the ASRock A620M-HDV/M.2 and is a baseline micro-atx motherboard with minimal rear I/O, just two DDR5 slots and no VRM heatsinks. A620 is believed to be AMD's first entry-level chipset... Read more...
Now is a great time to build a PC from scratch or to upgrade an existing one to the latest generation silicon from AMD and Intel. Both offer competitive solutions for a wide range of tasksgaming, content creation, productivity, general purpose chores, and so forth. As it pertains to AMD, it's Zen 4 processors have...
