Weve been hearing about AMDs next-generation Zen-based processors for quite a while now, though the company just officially announced that desktop and mobile variants will be branded RYZEN. Over the past few months, weve seen Zen in action in both high-performance desktop and server applications and have been... Read more...
AMD is heading into 2017 with a major new graphics driver refresh called Radeon Software Crimson ReLive Edition, or Radeon ReLive for short. Even better, we'll just call it ReLive from here on out. More than a name change or yet another incremental update, this is a complete retooling of Crimson right down to the user... Read more...
Its nearly time for AMD to shine and finally steal some headlines away from Intel in the CPU segment. As 2016 comes to close, AMD has marked December 13th on its calendar as the date to reveal some concrete details on its next generation Zen CPU architecture. The event will be hosted by Geoff Keighley, who will put... Read more...
Are you looking for a reason to be excited about Kaby Lake? You're in the same boat as many enthusiasts who hoped we'd be close to a Cannonlake launch by now. As it turns out, getting to 10nm isn't all that easy, so Intel delayed Cannonlake until late 2017 and decided to fill the gap between it and Skylake with Kaby... Read more...
Rumor has it AMD is planning a dual-GPU graphics card based on its forthcoming Vega 10 architecture that's due out next year. The card will be aimed at the professional market (initially, at least) where it will serve up an impressive amount of power for professional level content creation and things such as deep...

The real battle for GPU supremacy will take place when AMD ships its Vega GPUs starting sometime next year. Yes, AMD only recently announced Polaris, but that's not the architecture that's supposed to compete with NVIDIA's Pascal GPUs, at least not at the high end. That's where Vega comes into play, and a new leak... Read more...
Like everyone else, we're anxious to see for ourselves how AMD's forthcoming Zen architecture performs. Little by little we're getting glimpses of what to expect from Zen. AMD recently revealed more details about Zen and showed a demo of its 8-core, 16-thread "Summit Ridge" desktop processor outpacing a similarly... Read more...
Over the past few months, AMD has been preoccupied with shoving its Polaris-based GPUs (GCN 4.0) out the door. Offering a 2x advantage in performance-per-watt compared to its predecessors, the Radeon RX 480, RX 470 and RX 460 offer great performance at reasonable prices. But what about the follow-up to Polaris?... Read more...
Whoever the Einstein was that declared this a "post PC era" needs talk to the gamers and enthusiasts that flocked to Boston Convention And Exhibition Center this weekend for the sold-out PAX East show. And in good ol' Bean Town, the Murphys might dropkick that genius for being overly impaired and "ship him off"... Read more...
With such a big emphasis being placed on virtual reality and the development platforms backing the VR movement, it should come as no surprise that hardware companies are quickly embracing the need for more computational power and the need to work with larger datasets. To the end, AMD has announced that new member is... Read more...
GIGABYTE is a big fan of giving its customers choice on the motherboard front, which sometimes involves releases that support brand-new architectures on older hardware, or hardware you might not even expect. This past spring, for example, the company released EFI updates to allow its FM2+ boards to run AMD's Godavari... Read more...
If theres one constant in the tech industry, its change. Well-rounded and highly sought after executives come and go, either moving from between tech firms or departing the industry altogether to pursue other interests (ahem, Steve Ballmer). Even tech companies themselves go through a metamorphosis of sorts, as weve... Read more...
The increasingly bitter war between Nvidia and AMD just hit a new low, with AMD Gaming Scientist Richard Huddy yet again going on the offensive and slinging accusations at Team Green over its proprietary GameWorks technology. Huddy calls it "tragic" and "unhealthy for PC gaming." If you're even remotely entrenched... Read more...
As if AMDs Q1 financial performance wasnt bad enough, the companys revised Q2 guidance is actually worse than expected. The company originally forecast a 3 percent sequential drop in quarterly revenue (the company added a +/- 3 percent margin or error indicating a 6 percent decline as worst case scenario), but...

Big changes are occurring at Advanced Micro Devices (AMD), the Sunnyvale chip designer that suddenly finds itself in a bit of an accelerated restructuring mode. Having been appointed president and CEO of AMD in October 2014, Lisa Su is wasting no time putting into motion her vision for the company's future, which in the short terms involves Read more...
AMD reported its second quarter results today, and the stock market is anything but happy with the numbers -- in the past hour, the stock has shed more than 18% of its value, plunging from $4.57 to $3.86 as of this writing. Given the size of the plunge, you'd think the company had just announced its own imminent... Read more...
It has been almost two years since AMD launched the FirePro W9000 and kicked off a new battle in the workstation GPU wars. Today, we're reviewing the company's FirePro W9100 -- a new card based on the same Hawaii-class GPU as the desktop R9 290 and R9 290X, but aimed at the workstation market and professional...

In this episode of Two and A Half Geeks, Marco, Dave and Iyaz discuss AMD's new low power Beema and Mullins processors for mobile devices, the HTC One (M8), Samsung's Galaxy S5, Micron's new M500DC SSD for enterprise applications, and the Alienware 17 and Samsung ATIV 9 Plus notebooks. We also reveal some of the... Read more...
NVIDIA holds the lion's share of the market in mobile graphics hardware, but it's not the only competitor. When Alienware asked if we'd be interested in looking at a notebook based on AMD's top-end R9 M290X in a single-GPU configuration, we agreed. This system is based on exactly the same hardware and chassis as the Alienware 18-inch model... Read more...
Rumors continue to spill out into the Internet ahead of AMD's next-generation Kaveri launch regarding the CPU's overall performance, capabilities, and architecture. It appears AMD is upping the ante with this CPU in several ways, including a gaming bundle that will include Battlefield 4 with the highest-end A10 APUs... Read more...
There's a great deal riding on the launch of AMD's next-generation Kaveri APU. The new chip will be the first CPU to incorporate significant architectural changes to the Bulldozer CPU AMD launched two years ago and the first chip to use a graphics core derived from AMD's GCN (Graphics Core Next) architecture, which debuted on the desktop two...

With the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 both launched, the pressing question is: Which one should you pick? Comparing stats on the two is the typical way websites tackle this issue. I'm not going to. If you've read anything about the two devices, you already know the following: The PS4 is more powerful than the Xbox One... Read more...
