The latest update to CPU-Z, a free and popular system profiling and monitoring utility, adds support for several different CPU and GPU platforms, such as the recently introduced GeForce RTX 4060 Ti and AMD's mobile processors codenamed Dragon Range. What really stands out, however, is preliminary support for a new... Read more...
Well, that was fast—after a mere day on the market, AMD's freshly minted Radeon RX 7600 graphics card has already seen a price cut in Europe. That in and of itself is notable, but what makes it even more intriguing is that the Radeon RX 7600 is the least expensive Radeon RX 7000 series option based on AMD's RDNA 3... Read more...

So we've got a new Radeon graphics card at $279, and it's not bad. There's also a new GeForce card at $399, and it's not bad either. The new GPUs don't really compete with each other given the price difference. Given that, then we suppose that if you want a new GPU under $300, grab the Radeon card, and if you've got more dosh, snag the GeForce. Read more...
As enthusiasts, we love to look at the latest hardware, but there is a part of the market that does not care about the highest performance or the fanciest features. This part of the market is primarily driven by one concern: price. Even still, there's money to be made here, so companies like AMD and Intel need... Read more...
Intel's decision to move to a hybrid architecture for its CPUs, with heterogeneous compute cores targeted at either high-performance processing or low-power computing, has been a controversial one among enthusiasts. Some users cried, "I'm moving to AMD!" because Intel's long-time rival has no such distinction—every... Read more...
GPD is refreshing its Win Max 2 gaming console for 2023 with substantially more graphics horsepower compared to its predecessors.

AMD repeatedly told us (and thus, the world) that the Navi 31 GPU die used in the Radeon RX 7900 XTX was "architected for 3 GHz." That may be true, but in the real world, top-end RDNA 3 parts rarely exceed 2.6 GHz under a sustained, heavy load. As a result, the RX 7900 XTX generally falls behind the GeForce RTX 4090...

Yes, you read that headline correctly, and no, it's not an error. Six-hundred-watt CPUs are on the way, at least according to a leaked slide supposedly from Gigabyte. Put down the albuterol inhaler, though; we're not talking about a 600W CPU in your desktop PC—at least, not unless you regularly run top-end server... Read more...
If you follow hardware news at all, you are surely aware of the "exploding CPU" issue surrounding the Ryzen 7 7800X3D and certain Socket AM5 motherboards, particularly (but not exclusively) those from the ASUS ROG family. If you're not familiar, that's basically the gist of it right there: certain motherboards, when... Read more...
In just one quarter of sales, AMD has gone from being within striking distance of claiming a third of the overall x86 CPU market to exceeding it. As it has done for years, and more earnestly since the introduction of Zen, AMD continues to chip away at rival Intel and its huge market share lead. What was once a... Read more...
You might think that Radeon Vega GPUs are pretty rare at this point—and you might be right, if we're strictly talking about the original RX Vega 56 and 64 graphics cards. However, the Vega architecture has lived on long past its expiration date, and can still be found in lots of APUs sold by AMD. That might be why... Read more...
You've gotta appreciate the marketing team for AMD's graphics arm. Even in some of its darkest hours, AMD's Radeon marketing remains ferverent to a level that can only be admired.

If you follow tech news at all, you're almost certainly already aware of the much-publicized issue where certain AMD motherboards, when configured a certain way, can very literally cause the Socket AM5 CPU to explode, destroying the CPU and possibly damaging the motherboard, too. AMD's already issued a new AGESA... Read more...
