AMD's Zen 4-based Ryzen 7000 processors have just barely hit the market. Still, progress marches on, and software developers are looking ahead to AMD's next generation based on the Zen 5 architecture. Those chips won't be here for a year or more, but at least one application is already adding support for them. If... Read more...
Mitigations for the major security flaws that we keep discovering over the last few years have had significant performance implications for older hardware. (Convenient for the manufacturers, that.) It turns out that on the newest hardware, while certain workloads are still negatively-impacted, Ryzen 7000 series... Read more...
When AMD formally revealed Socket AM5 for its next few generations of desktop processors, it made the bold statement that CPU coolers for Socket AM4 would be compatible with the new socket. By now, we've got the parts in hand and are well-aware of the reality of the matter, which is that Socket AM4 CPU coolers are... Read more...
We're blending together a couple of leaks today, both because they inform each other, and because that's just how we roll. A curious result found in the Einstein@Home database seems to be for an unreleased Threadripper CPU. A separate AMD roadmap leak from a conference in Indonesia doesn't have a lot of new...

We've been so busy analyzing and reporting on all the recent NVIDIA, AMD and Intel launches and announcements that we haven't had a chance to just sit down and talk about them. So let's chill-out and do just that – NVIDIA GeForce RTX 40 Series, AMD Ryzen 7000, Intel Raptor Lake and Arc were all on tap in our most... Read more...
The PlayStation 3's Cell Broadband Engine was fairly unlike any other processor. It had capabilities that make emulating the system surprisingly demanding, even for modern hardware. As we've reported before, the AVX-512 SIMD extensions help with this quite a bit, but Intel cut off support for the instructions in its... Read more...
A Chinese tech enthusiast has shared what he claims to be a screenshot from a PC with a Core i9-13900KS under the hood. The Bilibili poster isn’t a source we are familiar with, so please take this information with an unhealthy pinch of salt. However, the PC screenshot is rather special—showing the purported CPU-Z...

The AMD Ryzen 7000 series processors already have a reputation for running hot, but we are assured this is perfectly as planned. As such, it won’t be an issue in the near or distant future. Nevertheless, TechTuber Der8auer has been up to his old tricks, cracking open one of these newly released CPUs with his Delid Die... Read more...
As we covered in our review of AMD's Ryzen 7000-series processors, the new Zen 4-based chips have integrated graphics! That means no more having to grab an old clunker off the rack just to have working display connections. However, if you have read our review, you'll know that the performance of the integrated GPU is... Read more...

When AMD announced its Zen 4-based Ryzen 7000 processors in August, it announced a peak clock rate of 5.7 GHz for the top-end, 16-core Ryzen 9 7950X model. That CPU is expected to boost to 5.85 GHz under Precision Boost Overdrive, but that's only on two cores. Even 5.7 GHz is well above the all-core clock speed, but... Read more...
