Anticipation is running high for AMD's second-generation EPYC server processors, codenamed Rome, which will start shipping to customers later this year. We have seen a spattering of benchmark demonstrations from AMD, but what about the specific lineup and pricing? Official details have yet to come, though a new leak... Read more...
AMD made some waves at Computex where it delivered its first keynote for the event. To kick things off, the company talked about its second-generation EPYC servers processors, codenamed Rome, and promptly demonstrated a pair of 64-core EPYC chips thrashing two 28-core Intel Xeon Platinum 8280 (Cascade Lake) CPUs in a...

It is widely known that Zen 2 is on the horizon, with a new generation of processors likely to be announced at Computex later this month. AMD has not kept this a secret. In fact, AMD recently reiterated that Zen 2 products will ship in the third quarter of this year, including both consumer desktop (Ryzen 3000 series)... Read more...
AMD has not been secretive of its plans to launch third generation Ryzen CPUs for the desktop, including 12-core and 16-core processors, and debut its Navi GPU architecture, both before the end of the year. Nevertheless, pending launches this summer can now be considered confirmed—during its annual meeting with... Read more...
AMD has definitely been on an serious upswing in recent years thanks to its Zen CPU microarchitecture, and the company has gotten the attention from some big names in the computing industry. Now, AMD is definitely showing its computing muscle thanks to a collaboration with the Cray, the Oak Ridge National Laboratory... Read more...
AMD is on the cusp of releasing a new generation of Ryzen processors based on its 7-nanometer Zen 2 architecture, and from everything we have heard to this point, it is going to be an exciting launch. Looking beyond Zen 2, however, is where things may get truly interesting, as AMD's Zen 3 architecture transitions to a... Read more...
AMD's rise back to prominence in the high-end CPU space has been partly (wait for it)...EPYC. That of course refers to AMD's efforts on the server side of the equation, where its EPYC processors are posing a formidable challenge to rival Intel's stronghold on the market. Little by little, however, AMD has been... Read more...
AMD has managed to reassert itself in the enthusiast computing discussion, thanks to its current gen Zen CPU and, to a lesser extent, Vega GPU architectures. Between Ryzen and Threadripper, there are now many compelling non-Intel options for power users. This also applies to the server side of the equation as well... Read more...
AMD first introduced its 14nm Zen processor architecture in 2017, and it was a turning point for the company’s fortunes in the PC market. This all-new microarchitecture gave rise to Ryzen for the mainstream PC market, Ryzen Threadripper for the high-end desktop (HEDT) market, and EPYC for enterprise customers. The... Read more...
AMD reported its Q4 earnings yesterday, and overall it was good news for the company. While revenue was lower than what analysts were expecting, the company met its mark for earnings, which drove shares higher after hours. AMD shares finished Tuesday with a nearly 20 percent gain. A lot of that success rides on the... Read more...
AMD's Q4 earnings have been highly anticipated, especially after its rival in the graphics arena -- NVIDIA -- yesterday revised its revenue guidance downward by $500 million, sending its shares plunging. Luckily for AMD, it was mostly good news for the company today. AMD recorded Q4 2018 GAAP revenue of $1.42 billion... Read more...
Competition is a good thing, and AMD sure is bringing it to Intel these days, and not just on the budget end of the spectrum. Zen has proven a capable architecture, and just as importantly, it's serving as a long-term foundation to compete with Intel across the board. The latest example of this is another demo AMD...

No one ever thought it would be easy for AMD to quickly claw away market share from Intel in the server market. While AMD's prospects in the consumer space with its Ryzen processors have been more promising, Intel’s rule of the x86 server market with an iron fist has been nearly impenetrable. However, a new report... 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...

Intel and AMD both have two high-powered server processors launches coming up next year which are set to shake up the enterprise market. Intel is the runaway market leader with its Xeon family of processors, but AMD is making slow and steady progress to challenge that market share with its EPYC processors. During the... Read more...
Processor core counts are skyrocketing these days, both on the consumer side and of course in the workstation sector. In regards to the latter, Intel last week announced the immediate availability of its Xeon E-2100 processors targeted at small and medium size businesses, and also a 48-core Cascade Lake CPU for...

There's no question that Intel has held a stranglehold on the enterprise CPU market with its family of Xeon processors. However, that all began to change last year with the introduction of AMD's first Zen-based EPYC processors which offered impressive performance at eyebrow-raising price points for potential...

AMD has an event scheduled for this coming Tuesday which is entitled "AMD Next Horizon". Heading over to the landing page on AMD's site for the event presents nothing but a blank page at this point, but we expect for things to start filling in November 6th. If you recall, back in early December 2016 AMD held a "New... Read more...
AMD is well along in development on its 7nm Zen 2 architecture that will be hitting the market in 2019. 12nm Zen+ Pinnacle Ridge architecture provided roughly a low single-digit uplift in instructions per clock (IPC) compared to 14nm Summit Ridge, but AMD has more ambitious goals for Zen 2. Back in July, it was... Read more...
AMD has been on the attack in the CPU war over the last several months as its Ryzen consumer CPUs and EPYC server CPUs continue to put pressure on Intel.
