The Ryzen 7 5800X3D is a fascinating processor. AMD stacked an extra 64MB of L3 cache, known as 3D V-Cache, onto a Ryzen 7 5800X, giving it immense gaming performance in some titles despite a small drop in clock rate versus the stock model. A lot of folks are holding off on Zen 4 until they can buy one of AMD's new... Read more...
AMD exclusive graphics card partner Sapphire has provided a clear tease of a new AMD Radeon RX 7000 series design's PCB. In a video shared on its Twitter account on Thursday, Sapphire announced “Vapor-X is back.” The firm’s reanimation of a product line which was only outgunned by its Toxic cards is welcome after...

Usually when the topic of Moore's Law comes up, it's either Intel extolling its continued relevance and focus (like Pat Gelsinger vowing to exhaust the periodic table to keep Moore's Law alive), or NVIDIA declaring it is dead as it did (again) just a few weeks ago. But where does AMD stand on the observation made by... Read more...
Given unlimited funds, most of us would choose to build a top-flight PC with a flagship AMD Ryzen 9 7950X or Intel Core i9-13900K processor. That's well and good if you can afford to go that route. If not, though, there are some compelling bang-for-buck options from both AMD and Intel. Out of curiosity, we looked up... Read more...
No matter if you search high and low or far and wide, you'll be hard pressed to find a socket AM5 motherboard for less than around $150. Many of the initial entries cost north of $200, and a few even top $1,000. Here's the thing, though—AMD said users could expect AM5 motherboards to start out at $125, but it's been... Read more...
Back in August, we reported on a leak from Skyjuice over at Angstronomics that gave different values from earlier leaks for some of the specifications in AMD's RDNA 3-based Radeon RX 7000 family. While the Navi 33 specifications were essentially similar, Skyjuice predicted lower-than-expected core counts for Navi 32... Read more...
Just how low will AMD's pricing go on its freshly minted Zen 4 desktop processors? AMD appeared to answer that question earlier this week when all four of its Ryzen 7000 series CPUs fell to new lows, making them more competitive (from a bang-for-buck perspective) to Intel's Raptor Lake chips. But now just a few days... Read more...
If you watched the company's presentation on November 3rd, then you're well-aware that AMD is launching the Radeon RX 7900 XTX and similarly-named Radeon RX 7900 XT on December 13th. As it turns out, that may not exactly be the full story, though. AMD said that its reference cards would be available on that date, but... Read more...
AMD Ryzen 7000 Series - Starting At: $250 (7600X), Ryzen 9 7950X - $699 AMD's Zen 4-based Ryzen 7000 series processors are a major upgrade over the previous generation and the updated platform offers a host of benefits.   Excellent ST Performance Rich Feature Set Big Gains Gen Over Gen Available Upgrade...

When AMD revealed its Radeon RX 7900 series GPUs early this month, its presentation focused on comparing against its own previous-generation parts. There were some comparisons to the GeForce RTX 4080 in the press materials, but nothing comparing their parts to the GeForce RTX 4090. That may change may have been made... Read more...
An image of an upcoming triple fan, triple slot, glowing red PowerColor graphics card has been shared by PowerColor on various social media channels. PowerColor is done being coy, and thus here we see a full-frontal picture of a substantial graphics card, which its social media team described as “The darkness... Read more...
Call it an early wave of Black Friday discounts or a price correction in light of the competition, but whatever the case, every Ryzen 7000 series desktop CPU is significantly cheaper than they were at launch. Discounts range from 14 percent on up to 28 percent, the biggest of which applies to AMD's flagship Zen 4... Read more...
Publicity is a hell of a thing. By all the data we have, incidents of melting 12VHPWR connectors on GeForce RTX 4090s are vanishingly rare. Despite that, everyone knows exactly what Sasa Marinkovic (AMD's Senior Director of Gaming Marketing) is implying with his tweet, which we'll reproduce below. In case you're... Read more...
One of the noteworthy takeaways from AMD's announcement of the Navi 31-based Radeon RX 7900 XTX was its lower power spec (355W) relative to NVIDIA's power-thirsty GeForce RTX 4090. Of course, it's not expected to be as fast as NVIDIA's card either, and in any case, we didn't see the RTX 4090 hit its rated power under... Read more...
The latest rankings are in for the Top500 list of the 500 fastest supercomputers in the world, and Oak Ridge National Laboratory's Frontier system powered by AMD EPYC hardware is still in front of the pack. That's not surprising, given that Frontier took pole position when it went online just shy of six months ago... Read more...
We love to talk desktop hardware around here. Those are the high-powered parts, of course, with potent performance that puts up the big benchmark numbers. Even still, laptops make up a huge swath of the market, so we can't ignore those chips. Both AMD and Intel have new laptop processors on the horizon, but the ones... Read more...
The GeForce RTX 4080 is a powerful GPU. In our full review it was able to outpace every card from the previous-generation including the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti, as well as every Radeon ever made. However, AMD has its own new parts on the way, and in its latest marketing materials, it makes direct comparisons against the... Read more...
PowerColor is back to its teasing ways. The AMD exclusive graphics card partner shared a clear, glowing view of the backplate of a new Hellhound today. Earlier in the month, we enjoyed a somewhat less revealing view of a new premium Red Devil graphics card. We are still a month away from when the RDNA 3 architecture... Read more...
Gamers are in a good place when it comes to the selection of CPUs from AMD and Intel, both of which recently rolled out new architectures—Zen 4 and Raptor Lake, respectively. That said, the best is yet to come. Both chip makers are purportedly readying even faster silicon based on these existing architectures to power... Read more...
Throughout the period encompassing the Radeon HD 7000 series, the Radeon Rx 200 series, Rx 300 series, Polaris, Fury, and Vega, AMD struggled with efficiency. Its GPUs were powerful, and had brute-force might to spare, but that didn't always translate into the top-shelf gaming performance the company would have liked to have offered. Ever... Read more...
AMD has just officially launched its 4th generation of EPYC server CPUs. Codenamed Genoa, these EPYC 9004 series processors are built using the same Zen 4 DNA powering the company’s Ryzen 7000 series of consumer desktop CPUs. The central story behind these processors is the same as ever—larger core... Read more...
Officially, the Zen 4 stack currently sits four CPUs high. Starting at the top we have the flagship 16-core/32-thread Ryzen 9 7950X, followed by the 12-core/24-thread Ryzen 9 7900X, 8-core/16-thread Ryzen 7 7700X, and finally the 6-core/12-thread Ryzen 5 7600X. It's a solid lineup to kick off the Ryzen 7000 series... Read more...
