The vapor chamber of an AMD Radeon RX 7900 XTX has been sliced open in an attempt to uncover any obvious flaws in its design. Again, the protagonist in this mystery overheating RX 7900 XTX tale is Roman “der8auer” Hartung, the expert overclocking YouTuber whose vapor chamber investigations we reported upon... Read more...
Overclocker der8auer reckons "AMD is in BIG trouble," after completing a series of tests on a batch of Radeon RX 7900 XTX graphics cards. Just before Christmas, we reported on AMD confirming it had started to investigate Radeon RX 7900 XTX and XT temperature spikes, or GPU/hotspot temperature deltas, but it looks like... Read more...
If you read reviews of AMD's recent Radeon releases, you may have noticed a trend. Many outlets, including us, noticed a huge gulf between the average GPU temperature and the GPU hotspot reading. Deltas of 30°C aren't uncommon, and some users have seen even larger gaps. It turns out AMD is aware of the issue, and is... Read more...
AMD's brand-new Radeon RX 7900 series graphics cards are very fast, but just like any new tech, they're not without their problems. AMD says it plans to fix up Navi 31's foibles in the drivers, and the first step toward that path was released today: AMD Adrenalin Software 22.12.2 is exclusively for the Radeon RX 7900...

The state of the HEDT market has been pretty bleak the last few years. AMD's Threadrippers went PRO-only, while Intel's been letting its high-end customers languish on the Cascade Lake-X platform that's still rocking the old Skylake core design at its heart. The blue team has new workstation processors on the way, but... Read more...
Yeston is a computer components company that is most known, at least in the West, for offering parts with a cutesy, anime-inspired aesthetic. The company's products are well-regarded in that niche, at least, and its new Radeon RX 7900 Sakura looks to continue the trend. Revealed in all of its plastic-and-metal... Read more...
MSI can be a weirdly polarizing brand. By any reasonable measure the company makes quality products, but for whatever reason MSI tends to be a love-'em-or-hate-'em brand. If you're a die-hard member of the Dragon Army, you might've been wondering where MSI's new Radeon cards are. Well, the answer is that they don't... Read more...
XFX MERC 310 Radeon RX 7900 XT: $949 - $979 (expected) The new XFX MERC 310 Radeon RX 7900 XT offers higher clocks and beefier cooler than AMD's cards, but that results in a larger form factor and higher price.

We're just a couple of days out from the December 13th launch of AMD's next-generation Radeon GPUs based on its RDNA 3 architecture. The first will be the Radeon RX 7900 XTX and the similarly-named but slightly-slower Radeon RX 7900 XT. When AMD announced these, it rated the faster card for a 2.3 GHz game clock and... Read more...
Minisforum has launched yet another mini PC, but this one breaks the mold with a whole new design and becomes the foundation of the firm’s Mars series. At first glance of the Minisforum MC560, you might think it is a new smart speaker for Amazon Alexa or Google Nest homes. However, the MC560 is a fully fledged PC with... Read more...
AMD’s hot new Radeon RX 7900-series graphics cards are due to launch very soon and we are fortunate to have both the RX 7900 XT and RX 7900 XTX in our lab for testing. While we can’t share any performance results or show them in-action just yet, we are able to unbox these cards with you to show off the retail experience and physical designs. Read more...
Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) is ramping up its efforts to increase chip production on US soil, and it has plenty of support from both the White House and major wafer customers, including AMD, Apple, and NVIDIA. As part of those efforts, TSMC is more than tripling its initial investment of $12... Read more...
Evidence that ASRock is busy working on new AMD RDNA 3 architecture graphics cards has emerged online. Tech site VideoCardz has acquired some exclusive and commendably clear images that appear to be of genuine ASRock Phantom Gaming and Taichi series graphics cards based on the AMD Radeon RX 7900 XTX and XT SKUs. These... Read more...
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...
