The cat is out of the bag, NVIDIA is on an absolute winning streak that has taken the world by storm, as evidenced its latest earnings report. Gaming GPUs with the GeForce RTX 40 series mostly held on with good inventory for gamers. Meaning, its data center GPUs are hot commodities, with demand increasing at an... Read more...
If you're a regular reader around here, odds are very good that you've spent some time experimenting with AI, including large language models. Even if you're not a developer yourself, you've probably dallied with DALL-E, gabbed with Gemini (ne Bard), or chatted with ChatGPTperhaps in its more pervasive form as... Read more...
AMD's next desktop processor release will be based on the Hawk Point silicon originally intended for mobile machines including laptops, tablets, and handheld gaming consoles. The Ryzen 8000G family, despite the incremented model number, is still based on the Zen 4 CPU architecture, just with the addition of RDNA3... Read more...
It's not difficult to imagine a scenario where the integrated Radeon graphics on one of AMD's extant Socket AM5 Ryzen processors simply isn't adequate. "Raphael" only has a single RDNA 2 Workgroup Processor (WGP), after all. However, adding a discrete GPU is a whole other layer of expense and complication, not to... Read more...
It appears as if the Samsung and Naver partnership to develop chips for hyperscale AI models is already producing results, with the companies claiming their field-programmable gate array (FPGA) solution is a whopping eight times more power efficient than anything made by NVIDIA. This is a bold claim, and will no doubt... Read more...
Pat Gelsinger, CEO of Intel, claims that NVIDIAs AI dominance it currently enjoys thanks to CUDA will come to an end sooner rather than later. The comments were made during Intel's launch event in New York for its new 5th Gen Xeon and Core Ultra chips. Gelsinger believes the future of AI will hinge on inference... Read more...
Unless you have a GeForce RTX 40 series GPU or you're a really big fan of mediocre fantasy games, you probably haven't had much experience with frame generation technologies. Suffice to say that we're fans around here. While AMD's FidelityFX Super Resolution is a fair (if somewhat inferior) competitor with NVIDIA's... Read more...
AMD has released its 23.12.1 update for AMD Software: Adrenalin Edition, focusing on adding new features such as HYPR-RX Eco, an update to the game profile UI that allows HYPR-RX to be enabled on a game-by-game basis, and GPU hardware scheduling. Additionally, performance in a few AI applications has been improved... Read more...
It's probably not an exaggeration to say that AI may be the biggest tech buzzword since the invention of the integrated circuitbigger than blockchain, bigger than cloud computing, bigger than IoT, and so on. Unlike a lot of buzzwords, however, AI isn't going anywhere anytime soon, and it's critical for a processor... Read more...
Have some sympathy for marketers. They're on the front lines of the brand wars, fighting for mindshare as part of the eternal battle for market share. Like any soldiers in a war zone, sometimes marketers make risky decisions if they think it will give them a leg up on the enemyquestionable decisions like "comparing... Read more...
The GPU news coming out of China continues to accelerate in stunning developments. The recent U.S ban on certain graphics cards used in AI seems to have spawned a plethora of new tactics to alleviate the stress on the Chinese market. It seems like scooping up aging NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 GPUs when the GeForce RTX... Read more...
In AMD's mobile processor naming scheme, the first digit tells you what year the chip came out, and the third digit tells you what CPU core IP it implements. The Ryzen 7040 series came out this year and had Zen 4 CPU cores, so it follows that the Ryzen 8040 series will come out next year with, yes, Zen 4 CPU cores... Read more...
AMD's Radeon RX 7000 series graphics cards are based on the RDNA 3 architecture, and if you keep up with hardware news, you've probably heard of RDNA 3.5. That revision to the RDNA 3 design is not coming to discrete GPUs, though; it's strictly for integrated graphics. Instead, AMD's next Radeons will be based on RDNA... Read more...
AMD drivers come with quite a few built-in features, but many of them couldn't be used at the same timeuntil AMD released HYPR-RX last month. Now, HYPR-RX is coming to the ROG Ally with the device's latest update, and it seems like a match made in heaven for this driver feature and ASUS's high-end gaming... Read more...
Much has been made of AMD's mobile SoC naming convention, but it's really not that complicated. The first digit tells you what year it came out, the second digit tells you where it sits in the product stack, and the third digit tells you exactly which Zen CPU core it's using. With that knowledge, we can accurately... Read more...
It's common for gamers to talk about input lag as stems from input devices and display devices, but the majority of the motion-to-photon lag for most PC gamers actually comes from the software stack itself. NVIDIA has its Reflex technology to counteract this latency, and AMD has its Anti-Lag, but Radeon Anti-Lag isn't... Read more...
However you feel about NVIDIA's frame generation technology, you have to admit that the idea sounds good on paper. Tick a toggle in a game's settings menu and increase your frame rate by 50% or more? A framerate increase that isn't bound by CPU limitations, allowing you to hit higher frames in CPU-limited games? It... Read more...
Counter-Strike in all of its forms has some of the most hardcore players of any game out there. These are people who want the game to be running at hundreds of FPS above their screen refresh for the infinitesimal input latency benefit that it gives. In that context, it's kind of crazy that the brand-new Counter-Strike... Read more...
In case you couldn't tell from our coverage, some of us around hereparticularly your present authorare big fans of Cyberpunk 2077. That's not only because it's a legitimately great game these days, but also because it is a showcase for the absolute bleeding edge in graphics technology. That will continue to be the...

Shortly before the launch of Starfield, Bethesda and AMD announced a strategic partnership that caused concern among the GeForce-owning PC gaming community. That's because it coincided with an independent report that remarked on the trend of AMD-sponsored PC games skipping support for NVIDIA's DLSS technology. Come... Read more...
When AMD was first announcing the RDNA 3 architecture around the release of its Radeon RX 7900 XT and XTX graphics cards, the watchword for the new design was "power efficiency". AMD endlessly emphasized that efficiency was the end goal for its new architecture, and promised huge efficiency gains out of RDNA... Read more...
Some workloads are a single tangled-up thread with various data types and crunchy compute; for these, our modern CPU cores are perfectly-suited. Other workloads (like, say, graphics) are giant piles of a single data type that can be chomped through in big parallel bites; this kind of thing is exactly what our modern... Read more...
