Inside companies like AMD, Intel, and NVIDIA, hardware and software engineers often work far removed from the marketing teams that determine the final product names. You've got to have a name for what you're working on while you're working on it, though. That's where all these wacky code names that we frequently... Read more...
AMD has prepared a warm-up event ahead of the impending Ryzen 7000 series processor launch. On Friday, August 5, it will be getting together with its most important manufacturing partners to showcase a wide range of AM5 motherboards. The hour long-event should be entertaining enough as top-end reps from ASUS... Read more...
You've probably heard that tech companies have stopped hiring lately. This is true of Apple and Google, but it's not universal. AMD is hiring, and even building a new campus for its Radeon Technology Group division. Older hardware enthusiasts will remember that the Radeon Technology Group started life as Array... Read more...
AMD's latest round of high-end desktop (HEDT) processors based on its Zen 3 architecture were never going to be cheap, but exactly how much will they cost? We didn't know the answer when AMD announced its Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5000 WX series CPUs last week. Now we do, though, and it bears repeatingthey're not... 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. Frequent leaker Greymon55 suggested that such a thing is possible, but admitted that he wasn't sure of the veracity of the... Read more...
NVIDIA's DLSS is one of those few technologies that comes along every so often and legitimately delivers the seemingly impossible: more with less. AMD's first attempt at challenging DLSS wasn't quite as advanced; while the original FidelityFX Super Resolution had its advantages, the image quality wasn't always in the... Read more...
You don't necessarily need to upgrade your GPU for better gaming performance. On the software side, game patches and driver tuning can increase frame rates as well. As it applies to the latter, an upcoming driver release for AMD's Radeon graphics cards has been tested and found to deliver up to around a 54 percent... Read more...
If you thought AMD would only talk about dollars and cents at its Financial Analyst Day event, think again. Sure, AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su shared plenty of data on TAM growth opportunities and ongoing investments, but its all predicated on a wide-ranging portfolio of compute and graphics products for both consumer and data...

AMD is still on track to launch its next-generation Ryzen 7000 processors this fall, which means there are engineering samples out in the wild. It seems an overclocker has taken one of those ES chips (or perhaps even a qualification sample, though that's less likely) and ripped the integrated heat spreader (IHS) off... Read more...
It's not really news to tell you that the next generation of graphics cards is going to be power-hungry. Truth be told, we don't have any official information on that point whatsoever, neither from AMD nor NVIDIA. The writing is on the wall, though; besides the constant leaks implying that the next GPU releases from... Read more...
The global games market is already bigger than movies and music combined, and some estimates have it skyrocketing to a $257 billion business by 2025. It's no wonder Apple wants a bigger piece of the gaming pie. Lest there was any doubt, Apple announced a couple of gaming technologies for the Mac at its WWDC 2022 event... Read more...
Could you imagine Maverick gaming at 60Hz, or even 120Hz? Neither can AOC, which today unveiled a new gaming monitor primarily aimed at esports players who have a serious need for speed. The Agon Pro AG274QS answers that call with a wicked fast 300Hz refresh rate, and it achieves that speed at a native 2560x1440 (QHD)... Read more...
Have you played the PC version of 2018's God of War? Despite the lack of a subtitle, it's the 4th main-series game in the franchise, and whatever your feelings on the title, its PC port was patiently crafted with love and care. It has quality keyboard and mouse controls as well as excellent performance. If you... Read more...
AMD's X570 chipset was stacked with potent I/O, but presented a significant annoyance for buyers: it required active cooling. That meant a return to the days of yore when the use of faster and faster memory meant that motherboard chipsetswhere the memory controller used to residestarted to require heatsinks with...

Corsair is rolling out a handful of new all-in-one liquid coolers under its Elite banner, including the H150i RGB Elite, H115i RGB Elite, and H100i RGB Elite. Unlike some of Corsair's older models, these coolers all come with the necessary hardware for Intel's LGA 1700 socket for its Alder Lake platform. They also... Read more...
Hardware enthusiasts will already know, but for anyone who doesn't, the performance of AMD's extant Ryzen platforms is seriously impacted by the transfer rate of the system RAM. It's not actually the memory bandwidth that matters for most tasks; instead, it's because the speed of the "Infinity Fabric" is linked... Read more...
We're only about a month and a half removed from when AMD's beastly Ryzen 9 5950X processor fell to an all-time low at $599, as we featured in our Zen 3 deals blowout roundup at the time. Well, it's priced even lower now, and if you're choosing more cores over stacked cache, AMD's flagship chip is an even more... Read more...
First, a bit of context. It has been rumored for some time that NVIDIA's next-generation graphics cards for gamers after Ampere, known as Ada Lovelace, will be ludicrously power-hungryto the tune of some 600 Watts. As an aside, AMD's RDNA 3-based Navi 30-series GPUs are expected to be quite thirsty as well. These... Read more...
Greymon55 is a popular, Digimon-themed hardware news leaker, and he's been busy lately. Early this month, he tweeted vaguely about a product entering its "bring-up" phase, which is the testing phase after "tape out" when a company receives its first shipment of etched dice from the foundry. As it turns out, that... Read more...
Spring is in the air and you know what that means, right? If you guessed new products from AMD, then pat yourself on the back (and thank a teacher, because you clearly read our headline). The much-anticipated Ryzen 7 5800X3D with its stacked 3D V-cache is one of those products, as are half a dozen new Ryzen CPUs and... Read more...
AMD this week completed its $35 billion takeover of Xilinx, a powerhouse in the field programmable gate array (FPGA) semiconductor space. In doing so, AMD not only expanded its reach into more market segments, it also propelled its market cap to a new heights and, for the first time ever, put Intel's market cap in the... Read more...
Back at CES 2022, AMD gave an update on the Zen 4 architecture that will first show up with the Ryzen 7000 series processors. Those chips, at least in desktop form, will go into Socket AM5. Where Socket AM4 (and most of AMD's previous mainstream processors) used a Pin Grid Array design, the next-generation Socket AM5... Read more...
