Security researchers have discovered a side-channel vulnerability in a similar vein to Meltdown, except this one is present in AMD's processors. AMD confirmed the finding, and has offered guidance to software developers, saying they should take precautions to avoid leaving the security hole open to attackers... Read more...
The Consumer Electronics Show (CES) is now in full swing (albeit virtually), and today is a particular busy one. Part of the reason is because AMD's Dr. Lisa Su is scheduled to deliver a keynote, where she will discuss the company's current CPU and GPU portfolio, and almost definitely announce some new stuff as...

AMD may have unleashed its Zen 3 architecture to the public in 2020, but this is the year that its latest generation CPU architecture will really spread its wings. In the coming months, the Ryzen 5000 series on the desktop will become more readily available (we hope, anyway), and Zen 3 will also be ported over to... Read more...
Do you think Intel is perhaps feeling the heat from AMD and its latest generation of Ryzen processors? Intel may not be willing to admit it publicly (not in so many words, anyway), but an admission of sorts could come in the form of another price cut, as is rumored to be the case. If true, the price cuts will come in... Read more...
Last week, AMD announced the first of its newthird-generation Ryzen Threadripperprocessors. These latest Threadripper processors are based on 7nm Zen 2 architecture with the Threadripper 3960X offering up 24 cores/48 threads and the Threadripper 3970X countering with 32 cores/64 threads. AMD's new Threadripper... Read more...
Late last week, Intel announced its strongest answer yet to AMDs Ryzen Threadripper family of HEDT processors with theCascade Lake-X family. While Intels Core-X processors have always been competitive on the performance side of things in the past, their pricing tiers have always been woefully inflated compared to AMDs... Read more...
Intel wasn't kidding when it said that the new Cascade Lake-X processors (the foundation of the upcoming Core-X family) would offer anywhere from a1.74x to 2.09x uplift in performance per dollarcompared to their Skylake-X predecessors. Intel is slashing prices by roughly 50 percent with its upcoming Cascade Lake-X... Read more...
Third-generation AMD Ryzen Threadripper processors are coming, which means that more benchmarks are starting to filter onto the internet giving us a preview of what to expect when it comes to performance. With that in mind, another leak has come to light, and it again references a 32-core, 64-thread Zen 2 processor... Read more...
Intel is pretty proud of its incomingCascade Lake-X familyof HEDT (High End Desktop) processors, as the company made very clear in slides late last month. Now, we're getting a look at the first member of the Cascade Lake-X family: the new Core i9-10900X. While this is a 10thgeneration processor from Intel, it isn't... Read more...
AMD'sthird-generation Ryzen Threadripper(Zen 2) processors should be here by the end of the year, which means that there are some deals to be had on current and previous generation Threadripper processors. One deal in particular that caught our eyes is on the Ryzen Threadripper 1920X, which is the 12-core version of... Read more...
Back in late August, we got our first glimpse at the chipsets that will underpin AMD's new third-generation Ryzen Threadripper processors, which are based onZen 2 architecture. At the time, we didn't know anything about the chipsets other their names which were TRX40, TRX80, and WRX80. We later got word of two... Read more...
An online retailer in Switzerland may have revealed the release date for AMD's upcoming Ryzen 9 3950X processor. According the new product listing, the 16-core/32-thread beast is due to launch on in two and half weeks on September 30, 2019, based on "official info from AMD," if a Google translation of the text is...

We know that AMD has third-generationRyzen Threadripper processors in route, and evidence of the pending launch is starting to mount. The latest new comes from respected leaker momomo_us, who uncovered some certification details for the processor family. Both AMD's newEPYC 7002and third-generation Ryzen... Read more...
Intel first announced itsCore i9-9900KS processor way back in late May, and we haven't heard much from them about the product since then. The Core i9-9900KS will be Intel's new enthusiast-class flagship processor for its mainstream platform and it promises to pack a serious performance punch. Intel today confirmed... Read more...
Here we go againin the lead up to the eventual unveiling of new Threadripper processors based on AMD's 7-nanometer Zen 2 CPU architecture, one of the upcoming chips has again made an appearance on Geekbench. What is remarkable about this particular leak, however, is how just well the leaked CPU performs. That is... Read more...
Remember CrossFire? Its AMDs counter to NVIDIA SLI, allowing enthusiasts to add multiple GPUs in an effort to split up the workload and improve overall gaming performance. However, you may have noticed with the launch of theRadeon RX 5700 familythat CrossFire support was not included on the graphics cards.Not many... Read more...
What appears to be another third-generation AMD Ryzen Threadripper processor has made an appearance on Geekbench, this time wielding 32 physical cores and 64 threads to throw at workloads. The entry points to a "Sharkstooth" part with a 3.6GHZ base frequency and 128MB (16MB x 8) of L3 cache, along with 16MB of L2... Read more...
Will we ever see another Ryzen Threadripper processor out of AMD? The answer is a resounding 'yes', and a new benchmark database entry may provide a first look at the specs of one of the presumably lower end versions of the upcoming Threadripper 3000 series. At a glance, the entry certain looks plausible, at the very... Read more...
In a new video posted to YouTube, AMD senior marketing manager Robert Hallock breaks down a technology that is headed to third-generation Ryzen processors. It is called Precision Boost Overdrive (PBO), and if that sounds like a familiar term, it is because it made a debut with AMD's second-generation Threadripper... Read more...
TheCore i9-9900Kis among the fastest processors that Intel makes available for the mainstream/enthusiast segment of the market. The processor is part of Intel's 9thgeneration Core family, has 8 cores/16 threads along with a base clock of 3.6GHz and single-core boost of 5GHz. However, AMD is gunning for Intel in a...
