Remember that whole kerfluffle about Radeon Anti-Lag+ getting gamers banned from CS2 and other competitive titles? That's all water under the bridge now, as the new and improved Radeon Anti-Lag 2 requires game-specific support, and will no longer set off anti-cheat packages. However, that does mean it has to be added... Read more...
The Ryzen 9 9950X isn't actually available yet, but benchmarks have been cropping up all over the web. We reported before on some leaked results in Geekbench, but today we have a pile of multi-threaded tests from a fellow on the Anandtech forums who got ahold of an ES (engineering sample) Ryzen 9 9950X and has been...

The graphics card market has been in a bit of a malaise lately, with no new releases or significant discounts to speak of. While not next generation worthy, Acer recently issued an EEC filing that listed a few new and possibly incoming AMD Radeon GPUs.  Forgoing the XT moniker, the new GPUs are listed as standard...

When building your PC, one of the most time consuming tasks is making the cables neat and tidy, rather than having a rat's nest of wires run amok in your rig. So it goes with traditional motherboards, anyway. However, if you abhor cable management, Gigabyte has some good news—it just launched a new AMD motherboard... Read more...
The artificial intelligence (AI) arms race is reaching a fever pitch, bolstered by AMD signing a definitive agreement to acquire Silo AI, Europe's biggest private AI lab, in an all-cash deal valued at around $665 million. That's not chump change and we could see more big-dollar investments like this as companies look to add to their AI arsenal, Read more...
If you hang around spaces on the 'net full of PC builders, there's usually a never-ending war of FUD and fanboyism, fueled by old memes and outdated preconceived notions. Depending on who you listen to, AMD's upcoming Ryzen 9000 desktop CPUs are either going to be the greatest thing ever or a sad disappointment. The... Read more...
AMD sells CPUs with model numbers ending in "X3D" that have something called "3D V-Cache." These CPUs very literally have an extra piece of silicon stapled to them that adds another 64 megabytes of L3 cache. This, in turn, radically improves performance in some applications—particularly complex games. There have been... Read more...
Mobile processors these days don't come with sockets like desktop CPUs, but they're still manufactured for a specific package type. The package for AMD's "Phoenix" and "Hawk Point" processors is called FP8, and it seems like Strix Point is going to use the same. The much larger "Strix Halo" processor isn't going to...

There was a time amongst the general populace and PC enthusiasts where Intel reigned supreme. With its poignant 'Intel Inside' marketing campaign, most PCs from the early days of the market were ingrained with Intel's influence. Fast forward a few decades, and AMD has squarely taken the lead, according to a firm that... Read more...
AMD's Ryzen 9000 series of desktop processors based on Zen 5 will be releasing to retail later this month and as we wait, leaked benchmarks have begun piling up. One of the latest unofficial benchmark runs pertains to AMD's upcoming second-fastest consumer SKU, the Ryzen 9 9900X—it made an appearance on Geekbench with... Read more...
An interesting part of computing history came to light on LinkedIn. Renato Fragale, who is the Senior Director of Gaming and Client Business at AMD, shared how the work his team did on the PlayStation 4 helped the company stave off bankruptcy. Sony used a custom APU dubbed Jaguar in both the PlayStation 4 and... Read more...
The starting price for Tesla's Cybertruck is $60,990 for the real-wheel drive model, or you could pony up $79.990 for all-wheel drive, or $99,990 for the Cyberbeast config with more power. They're not cheap and you'll have to wait until sometime in 2025 for delivery. If you're not ready to make that kind of commitment... Read more...
It took a few generations, but AMD's stacked 3D V-cache may now be at the point where it can withstand the rigors of overclocking. So goes the latest rumor, which claims that AMD's upcoming Ryzen 9000X3D processors based on Zen 5 will up the overclocking ante with full support for manual tweaks that extend beyond PBO...

AMD's first crop of desktop Ryzen 9000 series processors based on its Zen 5 architecture are right around the corning, after having already been formally introduced earlier this month during Computex Taipei. Retail availability is likely just weeks away at this point. While we know what SKUs and specs are on tap... Read more...
The download size of video games is getting out of hand. For a massive open world game with ten years of updates like GTA Online, 110 GB isn't out of the realm of possibility. When a first-person shooter like Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is 235GB, with the upcoming Black Ops 6 reportedly being over 300 GB, well, we... Read more...
Earlier this month, AMD lifted the wraps on its upcoming Zen 5 desktop processor lineup at Computex, revealing four SKUs with specifications that, under normal circumstances, would be set in stone this late in the game. However, there's a rumor floating around suggesting that AMD might re-spec one of the upcoming... Read more...
When AMD announced its new "Strix Point" Ryzen AI 300-series laptop chips at Computex, it said that they would be available in July. But when, AMD? Recent rumors reported that the launch day for AMD's Zen 5 architecture would be July 15th, but we had no confirmation from the manufacturer itself. Well, we still don't have that, but ASUS has Read more...
AMD's upcoming Ryzen AI 300 series processors based on its 'Strix Point' design are pretty cool, but they're essentially an iteration on its previous-gen Phoenix parts. The really exciting new chip supposedly still on the way from AMD is 'Strix Halo', a monster microprocessor meant for luxurious laptops and mighty mini-PCs. It purportedly Read more...
There's ample reason to be excited for Zen 5. After all, AMD says that it is the largest re-architecting of its CPU core since the original Zen. However, the company also acknowledged at Computex that the generational performance gain between Zen 4 and Zen 5 is only around 16%. That's a pretty solid gen-on-gen uplift... Read more...
AMD's Accelerated Processing Units (APUs) are desktop CPUs based on mobile silicon. These laptop-derived chips have fewer CPU cores and lower clock rates than the full-on desktop models, but they also include powerful integrated graphics parts that are probably faster than you think. For a small-form-factor system, a... Read more...
It appears that AMD is now the latest victim of cybercrime and a data breach, as company data is being offered for sale on a message board frequented by criminal hackers. AMD acknowledged the situation in a statement, noting that, "we are aware of a cybercriminal organization claiming to be in possession of stolen AMD... Read more...
It wasn't all that long ago that the idea of using integrated graphics for gaming was strictly a last resort endeavor. Chips like Intel's Graphics Media Accelerator and even early integrated Radeon parts weren't powerful enough for much beyond displaying a basic desktop. Putting aside the fact that game consoles have... Read more...
