AMD's Socket AM5 is a notable improvement over Socket AM4 in that it's impossible (or at least, much more difficult) to accidentally yank your CPU out of the socket when you're changing heatsinks. However, it does have its own share of annoyances. Chief among them is the cut-out design of the CPU IHS, which could... Read more...
The GeForce RTX 4090 is a beastcheck out our reviewbut it doesn't come cheap. Everyone loves to gawp at the top-end processors, but such mighty hardware is out of reach for the majority of enthusiasts. At least in the case of CPUs, you don't usually lose much gaming performance as you move down the stack, which is why... Read more...
Amazon's Prime Day deals bonanza is back for the second time this year, and with it comes a whole bunch of bargains, including deals on a wide range of processors from AMD and Intel. Whether you're looking to assemble an Alder Lake system or build a PC around a spunky Zen 3 processor, you can score a CPU for well... Read more...
AMD's Zen 4-based Ryzen 7000 processors have attractive performance, but their value proposition is questionable. That's due to the cost of entry: you need speedy DDR5 memory for the best performance, and the available X670 motherboards aren't cheap. Inexpensive B650-based boards are on the way, with AMD...

There was a rumor going around that Intel would "strongly encourage" its partners to go DDR5-only for its 13th-generation Raptor Lake CPUs. That may or may not have been true, but at least one vendor is apparently shipping as many as five motherboards based on Intel's Z790 chipset that will carry on with DDR4... Read more...
Buying a memory kit is all about timing, and we're not talking latency settings. We're talking about pricing and the volatility of DRAM, as it's particularly sensitive to constantly changing market conditions. Fortunately for consumers, DRAM pricing is on a downward spiral and, if the market analysts at TrendForce are... Read more...
AMDs Ryzen 7000-series arrival is fast approaching, but not everything is arriving at once. AMD announced the launch last month with the first processors set to arrive September 27th. Only the companys top end X670 and X670E boards will be available at this time as AMD indicated more affordable B650 and B650E... Read more...
When AMD's Socket AM4 platform for its brand-new Zen processors debuted, it came along with a number of growing pains. Most pressing were those related to the memory controller, but there were problems with USB connectivity and some early reliability issues, too. It's natural to expect there'd be similar teething...

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... Read more...
Memory is important for Ryzen. Well, memory's important for computers, period, but the specific performance of your PC's main memory is particularly pertinent for Ryzen systems, as enthusiasts are well-aware. Memory overclocking could be a cumbersome on Socket AM4 motherboards, so to sidestep that... Read more...
Ah, Geekbench. While the benchmark app is occasionally controversialparticularly where comparisons against Apple hardware are involvedit makes for a reasonably solid benchmark with consistent and relevant results, within the same platform. AMD just announced its new line-up of Ryzen 7000 series CPUs and... Read more...
The pricing of AMDs launch salvo Ryzen 7000 processors has been leaked. We expect four new Zen 4 processors priced between $299 to $799 to become official shortly.
