AMD's Socket AM4 has had a pretty good run. First released in 2017 alongside the company's then-new Ryzen processors, it's had nearly five years to host some of the fastest desktop chips on the market, giving Intel some much-needed competition and offering users surprisingly-valid upgrade paths. The successor to... Read more...
We have a special guest joining us today for our 2.5 Geeks livestream, Robert Hallock, Director of Technical Marketing at AMD. He'll be joining us to discuss everything AMD revealed during its Computex 2022 keynote. That means we'll be prodding for some juicy details Zen 4 and its accompanying 600 series chipsets...

Did you read our piece on AMD's announcements at Computex? There wasn't a ton of new information, but we did get some juicy details on the red team's upcoming Zen 4 processors and the chipsets that said processors will use, among other things. If you haven't read it, go ahead and do so, because there's important... Read more...
AMD's original implementation of its FidelityFX Super Resolution technique, while good, was not quite on the same level as NVIDIA's DLSS solution in many circumstances. FSR has its advantages, to be clear—it's super-easy to implement and it has a low performance cost—but it wasn't a massive visual upgraded over the... Read more...
When we tested the Ryzen 7 5800X3D, it came out ahead of the Core i9-12900K in every gaming benchmark. You've probably already heard that story, but you may not have considered the implications: Intel's Alder Lake CPUs are double-digit-percentages faster than AMD's original Zen 3-based Ryzen 5000-series processors...

While it's early morning (or late night) here in the US, it's mid-afternoon in Taipei, and AMD just finished up its Computex 2022 keynote. Some of the talk in today's event was a recap of the company's recent releases, such as its Ryzen 6000 series mobile processors and the laptops arriving in market powered by them... Read more...
I've become a big fan of mini PC systems over the past few years, as it's pretty remarkable at how much power can be crammed into a such a compact package. It seems the bulk of them tend to adopt Intel hardware, which is fine, but what about AMD powered mini PCs? They exist, and Minisforum is releasing what it says is... Read more...
HP is refreshing its Omen and Victus gaming laptops with better cooling and upgraded hardware options from Intel, AMD, and NVIDIA. The best part is, they're perhaps more affordable than some people may have anticipated—pricing starts at $799.99 for the Victus 15 and $1,199.99 for the Omen 16. The Victus is... Read more...
We've been hearing leaks and rumors about the next generation of Radeons since before the current generation even came out. Sometimes it's hard to differentiate between leaks and rumors, but as we get closer to the launch, information is becoming more and more concrete. So it goes, and as it happens, some of the...

There are a great many factors that enthusiast gamers consider when selecting a graphics card for a gaming PC. Despite that, speaking from experience helping others with builds for decades, things like feature support, power efficiency, and acoustics often go by the wayside when there's a significant advantage in...

The need for fast wireless connectivity has never been greater than it is right now, and there are efforts at play to ensure the speed and features for a modern workforce are there for the taking. One of those efforts is a collaboration between AMD and Qualcomm to optimize the latter’s FastConnect connectivity system... Read more...
If you're not keeping up with AMD Ryzen codenames, the three upcoming chips to watch are Raphael, Dragon Range, and Phoenix. Raphael is the codename for desktop processors sporting Zen 4 cores, DDR5 memory support, and PCIe 5.0 connectivity, and these chips will be in the "65W+" category. Notably for AMD desktop CPUs...

One of the biggest differentiators of the Radeon RX 6000 family, and by extension of the RDNA 2 graphics architecture, is its reliance on a large local cache—known officially as "Infinity Cache"—to provide rapid framebuffer access. This helps to make up for the relatively slower memory used on the cards in comparison to competitor... Read more...
We've said before that AMD really hit its stride with Zen 3. The Zen architecture as a whole put AMD back in the enthusiast discussion in a big way, and it has continued to make improvements at the silicon level. That is set to continue with Zen 4 due out later this year, and rumor has it the next-gen architecture... Read more...
The desktop PC market took it on the chin in the first quarter of 2022, as excess inventory and normal seasonal downturns jointly contributed to a steep drop in x86 CPU shipments. The steepest, in fact, from one quarter to the next—desktop CPU shipments plummeted more than 30 percent, marking the "worst quarterly... Read more...
First there were three, then another, then another, and so forth until there were eight. We're talking about the Radeon RX 6000 series of desktop graphics cards, which spans the Radeon RX 6400 on up to the Radeon RX 6900 XT. Or at least that was the case yesterday. Today there's a new top SKU, the Radeon RX 6950 XT... Read more...
The top selling graphics card on Amazon is Gigabyte's GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Gaming OC with a factory overclock and custom 3X Windforce cooling solution. After that, MSI's GeForce RTX 3080 (LHR) is the next best-selling GPU, followed by Zotac's GeForce RTX 3060 Twin Edge OC. And so it goes for the top 10 best sellers—all... Read more...
AMD gets a lot of love from the open-source community because it's willing to work with developers to ensure that its Radeon graphics cards are fast and stable on operating systems that aren't Windows. A prime example would be the recent updates to the Linux kernel to support GFX11, which refers to the company's... Read more...
AMD has been attacking the CPU market on all fronts, and that even includes Chromebooks. Or more specifically, premium Chromebooks with its newly unveiled Ryzen 5000 C-series processors based on Zen 3. That's the same potent architecture that powers AMD's latest generation desktop, laptop, and server processors, built... Read more...
Acer is rolling out an updated version of its Chromebook Spin 514 that's now even faster and more capable. It's still a Ryzen-fueled Chromebook like last year's model, but new for the 2022 SKU is an upgrade to AMD's Ryzen 5000 C-series based on its latest generation Zen 3 architecture, the same as what powers its...

AMD is coming off a huge quarter in which it generated $5.9 billion in revenue, a massive increase of 71 percent over the same period a year ago. It's also the first time AMD's quarterly revenue has topped the $5 billion mark. Even without the benefit of its recent Xilinix acquisition, AMD's revenue saw a significant... Read more...
