For folk who aren't familiar, AMD's desktop CPUs since third-generation Ryzen have followed a particular form: two or three chips under an integrated heatspreader, with one being an I/O die that connects to external devices like memory, PCIe, and USB, while the other one or two dice are Core Complex Dice (CCDs) that...

AMD has issued an advisory regarding reported Windows 11 versus Windows 10 performance deltas in certain games with its newly minted Ryzen 7000 series desktop processors. While the company has not observed any usual performance characteristics so far (and neither have we, for that matter), it is looking claims by... Read more...
Regular readers or general enthusiasts may recall our story from Tuesday, when we told you about a collection of reports that pegged AMD's upcoming RDNA 3-based Radeons as coming in two forms: the Radeon RX 7900 XT with 20GB of video RAM, and the flagship Radeon RX 7900 XTX, with 24 GB. Now another leaker is... Read more...
AMD’s next generation of graphics cards will be available to the public starting from early December, according to a seasoned Twitter based technology leaker. Such a timescale is quite believable, as it would mean availability would begin more or less a month after an officially scheduled Radeon RX 7000 RDNA 3 launch... Read more...
We've had some pretty big hardware launches over the last few weeks, but we're not done yet. Up next on November 3rd are AMD's third generation of Radeon cards based on its RDNA architecture. The Radeon RX 7000 series will be AMD's first go at "disaggregated" GPUs, to use the Intel terminology. The Red Team's made... Read more...
AMD's Zen 4-based Ryzen 7000 processors are damn fast, no doubt about it. That speed also comes with a cost, though, both in terms of power draw and a literal monetary cost. We'd all like if there were new Zen 4 processors that were a little cheaper and a little less power-thirsty, so it's good news when we hear that... Read more...
Following the launch of its Ryzen 7000 series desktop processors for consumers, AMD will soon unveil its first EPYC server chips based on the same underlying Zen 4 architecture. How soon? Less than three weeks from now—AMD announced it will livestream its next-generation EPYC server CPU launch on November 10... Read more...
Both major GPU vendors right now have either launched or are about to launch new graphics processors based on the latest process technology. NVIDIA's Ada Lovelace architecture has seen the light of day with the GeForce RTX 4090, and AMD's set to launch its Radeon RX 7000 series GPUs on November 3rd. As happens with... Read more...
AMD's AM5 socket and Ryzen 7000 processors retain compatibility with CPU coolers designed for Socket AM4. This presents a problem, because the LGA-style socket is much slimmer than the PGA style used on Socket AM4, so using the same coolers meant building Socket AM5 CPUs with extremely thick heatspreaders. Despite... Read more...
As we've just reported, AMD is launching its next-generation Radeon RX 7000-series graphics cards with a livestream on November 3rd. Like other recent launches—including NVIDIA's RTX 40 series, Intel's Raptor Lake, and AMD's own Ryzen 7000 CPUs, we don't expect that cards will be available on that day. It shouldn't be...

AMD is going to livestream the launch of its much-anticipated RDNA 3 graphics architecture in a couple of weeks, at which time the company will presumably also reveal its initial lineup of Radeon RX 7000 series graphics cards. It remains to be seen how many SKUs will end up announced, but at minimum we expect the... Read more...
The red team is readying a launch of some brand-new GPUs based on the fresh-out-the-oven RDNA 3 architecture. There's an event in about two weeks—on November 3rd—to announce the parts, which we expect to be broadly competitive with NVIDIA's latest GPUs, the GeForce RTX 4090 and incoming RTX 4080 (now in just one...

There's not many negatives to say about the GeForce RTX 4090—pricing gripes aside—but there was one little detail we picked out as soon as NVIDIA put the part's specifications up on the product page: the lack of support for the latest DisplayPort connection standard. If a rumor is accurate, AMD's new Radeon... Read more...
We won't go so far as to say the Great GPU Shortage of 2022 (and earlier) is now a distant memory (it's still 2022 after all), but the situation is definitely improved. Between the crypto crash and improved supply, finding a GPU in stock is no longer an impossible task. Even better, you can actually find some graphics... Read more...
Amazon's Prime Day deals bonanza is back for the second time this year, and with it comes a whole bunch of bargains, including deals on a wide range of processors from AMD and Intel. Whether you're looking to assemble an Alder Lake system or build a PC around a spunky Zen 3 processor, you can score a CPU for well... Read more...
The power supply unit (PSU) is the unsung hero of the PC, even if all the glory typically goes to the graphics card and/or CPU. Trying to figure out how much wattage you need is the tricky part, and using an online PSU calculator can help take some of the guesswork out of the selection. Evidently, it can also tip you...

AMD shared a preliminary accounting of its third quarter revenue, which it now projects to be $5.6 billion. That's a $1.1 billion downward adjustment compared to its previous guidance of $6.7 billion (plus or minus $200 million). AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su attributed the $1.1 billion guidance miss primarily on a... Read more...
Acer's latest laptop with AMD inside is not only lightweight, it's purportedly the lightest 16-inch OLED model the world has ever seen, the company claims. To that end, the Swift Edge powered by AMD's Ryzen 6000 and Ryzen Pro 6000 series processors features an ultra-slim magnesium-aluminum chassis with a 0.51-inch... Read more...
If you keep up with hardware news and reviews like ours, then you're no doubt already aware that AMD's Ryzen 7000-series processors run hot by design, and they can be pretty power-thirsty, too. In ages past, we'd fix a problem like this through undervolting, and that's exactly what Reddit user MyKillK has done with... Read more...
A popular community-maintained chart, ranking performance in Sony PlayStation 3 emulator RPCS3, has beckoned a new flagship CPU to the throne. AMD’s Ryzen 9 7950X has elbowed past the incumbent Intel Core i9-12900K to become number one in the ‘S Tier’ class of processors for fast-paced PS3 fun. The new AMD Ryzen... Read more...
AMD's Zen 4-based Ryzen 7000 processors have just barely hit the market. Still, progress marches on, and software developers are looking ahead to AMD's next generation based on the Zen 5 architecture. Those chips won't be here for a year or more, but at least one application is already adding support for them. If... Read more...
Mitigations for the major security flaws that we keep discovering over the last few years have had significant performance implications for older hardware. (Convenient for the manufacturers, that.) It turns out that on the newest hardware, while certain workloads are still negatively-impacted, Ryzen 7000 series... Read more...
