There can't really be any doubt at this point: AI is going to change all of our lives, and there's no going back from here. Still, there's quite a bit of debate over exactly how it's going to happen. If you listen to hardware vendors like AMD and Intel, they'll tell you that you absolutely need to upgrade your... Read more...
AMD currently sells processors utilizing "standard" and "dense" (or "compact") cores, including some chips that have both. The "dense" cores are indicated with a "c" at the end, like "Zen 4c", and they have all the same capabilities as the standard cores, but typically run lower clocks because the tight spacing makes...

AMD's "Phoenix Point" processors are only now becoming widely-available in the marketplace, but enthusiasts are already looking ahead to Phoenix's Zen 5-based successor, Strix Point. Not that there's anything wrong with Phoenix; that's the foundation of the Ryzen Z1 Extreme processor in the ASUS ROG Ally, and we came... Read more...
AMD hosted its Data Center and AI Technology Premiere in San Francisco, CA today, where it outlined its vision and strategy for the future of computing. The company introduced its first batch of fourth generation EPYC 9004 series server processors, aka Genoa, last November which largely delivered on the promise of... Read more...
Once upon a timechipset drivers were just as vital as graphics drivers. In fact, you'd usually install them first, immediately after setting up Windows itself. That practice has fallen by the wayside as more and more parts of the "chipset" have been standardized, but you'd better make sure to grab the new AMD chipset... Read more...
Hardware enthusiasts of a certain vintage will become misty-eyed and nostalgic when they hear the word "Mendocino." That might be exactly why AMD picked that codename for its own cut-down, low-cost Ryzen processors. Officially announced at Computex and intended for applications where cost is the most important factor... Read more...
There is little over one week left until the Destiny 2: The Witch Queen expansion launches. Chances are high that if you are a player who wants to be at the new power level cap on Raid Day, you have already been hoarding bounties and materials for weeks. However, how can you prepare for the new expansion if you are a... Read more...
AMD CEO Dr. Lisa kicked off the companys highly-anticipated CES 2021 keynote with some discussion about the importance of high-performance computing and the gaming industry in general. She talked about the latest AMD-powered game consoles and the recent launch of the Radeon RX 6000 series, otherwise known as Big Navi... Read more...
You might be having a difficult time finding a Ryzen 5000 series processor in stock (and priced according to the MSRP), but when you do manage to get your hands on one (if you are in the market for a Zen 3 chip, that is), there will be an updated third-party utility waiting for you to help get the most out of your...

You knew that sooner or later, someone would perform surgery on a Ryzen 5000 series CPU, peeling away the integrated heatspreader (IHS) to give us a look at the actual die. This is a process that is not for the faint of heart (or faint of wallet/purse, either). And now just days after Zen 3 made its retail launch... Read more...
The highly anticipated follow-up to AMD's blockbuster Zen 2 family of Ryzen 3000 desktop processors is finally here. AMD has announced its Ryzen 5000 desktop processor family, which is based on its all-new Zen 3 architecture. Zen 3 is still being produced on the 7nm process node, but AMD has managed to deliver a...

The developer responsible for the popular DRAM Calculator for Ryzen utility is getting ready to release another software package for AMD's processors, this one called ClockTuner for Ryzen (CTR). Set to go live tomorrow, September 29 at noon ET, the nifty follow-up utility will enable finer grain control over certain... Read more...
Most of the focus in the PC space recently has been on new graphics card, with NVIDIA launching its GeForce RTX 30 series and AMD prepping its upcoming Big Navi release. But what about CPUs? As AMD has said time again, Zen 3 is on track to launch this year. And if the latest rumor is true, one of the upcoming CPU... Read more...
With so much attention being paid to graphics card leaks as of late, it could be easy to forget that new CPUs are on the horizon, too. That would be a shame, because Zen 3 is arguably just as interesting, considering the gains AMD has already made with its Zen architecture up to this point. While we continue to wait... Read more...
AMDs Ryzen 3000 Zen 2 family of processor have been on the market for well over a year at this point, which means that we learned just about everything there is to know related to their inner workings. With this in mind, Yuri Bubliy (aka 1USMUS), the mastermind behind the DRAM Calculator for Ryzen, is set to release a... Read more...
AMD has been riding high on its Zen 2 workhorses as of late, but the resurgent CPU manufacturer is hardly resting on its laurels. Processor designs tend to have long lead times, so it should be no surprise to anyone that the company has been working on its next-generation architecture for quite a while. It's not every...

Some AMD platform owners have raised concerns about the Ryzen Master utility identifying a different, and perhaps wrong, fastest CPU core than the one that gets chosen by the Windows Scheduler in Windows 10. Likewise, some have raised doubts that the Windows Scheduler is identifying and boosting the correct core for... Read more...
Gigabyte has made available a beta BIOS update for its X570 Aorus Master motherboard, and with it comes new support for per-CCD overclocking on AMD's Ryzen 3000 series processors. While we have not tested this ourselves, the firmware update should make it easier to achieve higher and more stable overclocked... Read more...
AMD has been generous enough to provide a roadmap for Zen through several generations, so we already know some details about Zen 3it is being built on a refined 7-nanometer manufacturing process (7nm+), and the design phase is already finished. Some details remain elusive, however, though a recent leak may have shed... Read more...
AMD is riding high on its Zen 2 CPU architecture, both on the desktop and in the server sector, and has managed to steal some market share from Intel because of its recent success. Lest anyone think AMD will now rest on its laurels, the company put that notion to rest during a recent HPC-AI Advisory Council conference... Read more...
AMD has gone on record saying it's "betting big on 7 nanometers" and the innovations that come with it. One of its upcoming 7nm products is "Rome," a next-generation Epyc processor that will be the world's first 7nm datacenter CPU, with increased instructions per clock (IPC) throughput and a big overall performance...

If you want to build yourself a gaming PC, brace yourself for sticker shock when you start shopping for a graphics card. Cryptocurrency mining has derailed the prospect of building a gaming PC from the ground up by driving up the price of GPUs and creating a shortage. That's the bad news. The good news? Thanks to...
