We are all infatuated with top tier silicon products from Intel and AMD, like enthusiast desktop processors and potent server chips wielding a bunch of cores and copious computing muscle. But on the other end of the spectrum, there is the low power stuff for entry-level laptops, fanless systems, and things of that... 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...
AMD has all the momentum in the world right now, at least in the CPU space, and it will not be taking its foot off the gas pedal. Just the opposite, a supposedly leaked roadmap gives us a tease of what AMD has in store for the next couple of years, with Zen 3 "Warhol" and Zen 4 "Raphael" products in the pipeline for...

AMD started off 2020 with a bang when it released itsRyzen 4000 processorsfor laptops, and garnered many design wins. Based on the potent Zen 2 processor architecture, Ryzen 4000 processors are available in up to 8-core/16-thread configurations and with up an 8-core Radeon Vega-based graphics core. Now were getting... Read more...
We are always up for a good old fashioned showdown between AMD and Intel, two tech heavyweights vying for dominance in the CPU space (and beyond). And we sort of get one, courtesy of a benchmark leak highlighting Intel's upcoming Core i7-1165G7 processor, which is part of the chipmaker's unreleased Tiger Lake... Read more...
As we approach the launch of Intel's 11th generation Core "Rocket Lake" processors, one of the lingering questions is, will it finally deliver PCI Express 4.0 support to consumer platforms? Leaks and rumors have suggested the answer is 'yes', and if you want one more to add to the pile, just head over to the... Read more...
Weve known thatIce Lake-SPprocessors would be on the way from Intel for quite some time, and were now getting a glimpse at some high-end SKUs that will be coming to the Xeon product family. Intel has been stuck on the 14nm process node for its mainstream and enterprise-class processors for much longer than originally... Read more...
For the four millionth time (rough estimate), a desktop processor based on Intel's upcoming Rocket Lake-S architecture has found its way to a benchmarking database, providing a potential glimpse of performance to come. And if that is indeed the case, then Rocket Lake-S is looking pretty good, considering it is yet... Read more...
This has been a rough couple of weeks for Intel. First, it got leapfrogged by NVIDIA as the most valuable chipmaker in the US, then as part of its second quarter earnings report, Intel divulged that a defect in its 7-nanometer manufacturing has resulted in another six-month delay (and we won't see 10nm desktop chips... Read more...
Although Intels 7nm processor delay is definitely disappointing news, that isnt slowing down the companys near-term products like its 11thgeneration Tiger Lake andRocket Lake-Sfamilies. The former is expected to be announced at a bigvirtual event on September 2nd, and will form the basis of a new generation of... Read more...
Hey, have you heardAMD is planning to launch its Zen 3 architecture in 2020. Of course you have, because AMD has said it a million times (slight exaggeration). Every roadmap and multiple statements have reiterated that Zen 3 is on track to launch this year, but for anyone who needs to hear it one more time, AMD has... Read more...
By my conservative estimate, AMD has confirmed its Zen 3 architecture will launch this year around 4 million times. Well, add another confirmation to the pile, to make it 4 million and one. For anyone who is still doubting whether Zen 3 will come out this year or be pushed into 2021, AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su has once again... Read more...
Up to this point, everything AMD has said indicates the company is still on track to launch its upcoming Zen 3 processors this year, despite the recent Ryzen 3000 "XT" refresh that led to rumors of a delayed release. In case further proof is needed, an apparent Zen 3 engineering sample has shown up in the wild, as... Read more...
Earlier this week, arumor was making the roundsthat AMD could potentially be delaying its Zen 3-based Ryzen 4000 desktop processors until early next year. The basis of the rumor was centered upon a couple of assumptions: 1) that the newly announcedRyzen 3000XT familywould be sufficient to sustain AMDs performance... Read more...
Just over two years ago, Intel scored a major win in the talent department by hiring Jim Keller, a former AMD Ryzen chip engineer (among other accomplishments), to "accelerate [the] transformation" to "fundamentally change the way" silicon is built. It was an exciting announcement for Intel, but it will have to forge... Read more...
Seemingly out of left field, Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) revealed it is planning to crank out chips based on a 4-nanometer manufacturing process. Described as an "evolution" from its 5nm node, TSMC says it is currently in discussions with potential customers about leveraging the node, which fills... Read more...
Every indication up to this point is that AMD's upcoming Zen 3 CPUs will be based on an enhanced 7-nanometer manufacturing process, with Zen 4 seeing an eventual shift to 5nm. But what if that was not the case? What if AMD decided to shake things up and jump straight to 5nm with its next round of CPUs instead, in... Read more...
AMD is out there living the good life right now. Zen has proven to be a formidable contender, it seems like a Zen 2 refresh is en route, and looking further down the road, Zen 3 will likely keep the party going. As it pertains to the latter, a new leak potentially sheds some light on what AMD has on tap, both for its... Read more...
AMD and Intel are in a dogfight in the CPU space, and unlike the days of old, it's actually a competition now. That's because AMD has done a spectacular job building up its Zen architecture, culminating (so far) in Zen 2. Meanwhile, Intel continues to squeeze out every ounce of performance it can from its 14-nanometer... Read more...
What began as a trickle of information on AMDs upcoming new processors is now turning into a flood. We first heard reports that AMD would releasetwo new Zen 2 "Matisse Refresh" processorson Friday, and by Saturday, that number hadgrown to three new processors: the Ryzen 5 3600XT, Ryzen 7 3800XT, and the Ryzen 9...

Intel officially launched its 10thgenerationComet Lake-S desktop processor familyearlier this week, and the chips deliver some strong performance with some equally voracious power consumption especially with respect to the flagshipCore i9-10900K. AMD has not been sitting idle, however, and we reported... Read more...
Rumor has it that AMD's next round of Ryzen processors will have a bigger than expected bump in IPC (instructions per clock) performance. Built on a new architecture, Zen 3 will see a die shrink and, most likely, some notable performance optimizations, power efficiency gains, and upgraded features. But all eyes... Read more...
