While Sony has had some pretty loose lips regarding its upcoming PlayStation 5, Microsoft has held things pretty close to the vest with regards to its next-generation Xbox, codenamed Project Scarlett. What we do know, however, is that like the PlayStation 5, Project Scarlett will be powered by an 8-core/16-thread AMD Ryzen 3000 Zen 2 processor. Today, the folks over at Windows Central claim to have some inside information on performance targets for Project Scarlett, and the console is going to be an absolute beast. Anaconda is the alleged high-end version of Project Scarlett, akin more to the Xbox One X, while Lockhart will be positioned like the current Xbox One S. Anaconda... Read more...
At this point, we can pretty assume AMD will in fact launch a Radeon RX 5600 graphics card at some point. Falling into the 'where's there's smoke, there's fire' category, we have seen several leaks pointing to a Radeon RX 5600, dating back to at least July of this year. The most recent, however, is a pair of new listings in the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) registry. This is a common stepping stone for new products, before they are officially announced. We have seen this play out many times in the past. This time, both ASUS and ASRock have made pit stops at the EEC, both with references to multiple custom Radeon RX 5600 SKUs.

Over the last several years, AMD has released major new driver features and enhancements at the end of the calendar year, and as 2019 draws to a close, it is no different. The just-released Radeon Software Adrenalin 2020 Edition overhauls the driver suite's installation and interface to surface what's important, adds new features (and enhances several others), and promises performance improvements in a variety of games. This new driver suite supports any GCN-based Radeon going back to the December 2011 release of the Radeon HD 7970 all the way up to the latest Navi architecture and the Radeon RX 5700 XT, and works with both Windows 7 and Windows 10.  Revamped Installer Normally we wouldn't...

AMD is on the cusp of expanding its Navi-based graphics card lineup with the Radeon RX 5500 series, which it announced back in October of this year, and perhaps a Radeon RX 5600 series as well. Time will tell, but the latest scuttlebutt is that a Radeon RX 5500 XT model will launch very soon, possibly as early as next week. So far, AMD has not actually referenced a Radeon RX 5500 XT. However, it did say the Radeon RX 5500 series will be available with up to 8GB of GDDR6 memory. The assumption is the 4GB model will be the regular the Radeon RX 5500, while the 8GB model will be the Radeon RX 5500 XT. That has not been confirmed by AMD, though, and there is an alternate theory (more on that in a... Read more...
AMD launched its Navi-based Radeon RX 5700 series GPUs for gamers a few months back and customized, higher-clocked boards from its partners quickly followed soon thereafter. Navi, and its newly-designed RDNA-infused microarchitecture and instruction set, will be the foundation of an entire family of GPUs from AMD moving forward, that will span multiple market segments. The first products based on Navi targeted enthusiast gamers, but now AMD is ready to inject its leading-edge GPU architecture into the pro-graphics space with the brand-new Radeon Pro W5700, which we’ll be showing you here. In addition to using its latest GPU design with the Radeon Pro W5700, AMD is using the opportunity... Read more...
Just days after NVIDIA released its latest GeForce Game Ready driver for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, it's AMD's turn to flex its software muscle with the Radeon Software Adrenalin Edition 19.10.2. For those that are hip to installing the latest drivers for their hardware as soon as it's released, this latest driver update comes with some big upsides. For starters, AMD is advertising up to an 18 percent gain in performance in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare with these drivers. However, AMD stipulates that this performance uplift is with the enthusiast-class Radeon RX 5700 XT. Not be left out, like the NVIDIA Game Ready driver released earlier this week, the new AMD driver... Read more...
If you've had your eye on an AMD Navi-based card, but haven't quite had the motivation to pull the trigger, then we have a very compelling deal for you that's going on over at Newegg. The retailer currently is selling the XFX Radeon RX 5700 for $289.99. For those not in the know, the XFX Radeon RX 5700 pretty much sticks to AMD's reference design, so there are absolutely no surprises here. That means that you'll find 36 compute units, 2304 stream processors, and 8GB of GDDR6 memory onboard. Base, Game, And Boost clocks are listed at 1465MHz, 1625MHz, and 1725MHz respectively for both the reference card and the XFX Radeon RX 5700, while AMD pegs the card at delivering 7.95 TFLOPS FP32 compute...

A newly leaked batch of press renders is making the rounds, and the speculation is they show XFX's upcoming Radeon RX 5500 THICC II graphics card. That has not been confirmed, but this batch of renders looks different than recently leaked ones that showed XFX's also upcoming Radeon RX 5700 XT THICC III model. The Radeon RX 5500 is the newest member of AMD's growing Navi family of graphics cards. AMD launched the new SKU last week. alongside a mobile variant—Radeon RX 5500M—that will land in shipping laptops before the desktop cards arrive. The Radeon RX 5500 boasts a Navi GPU with 6.4 billion transistors. It features 22 compute units, 1,408 stream processors, and 4GB or 8GB of GDDR6... Read more...
It seems XFX is adding another "THICC" graphics card to its lineup. This latest entry, the Radeon RX 5700 XT THICC III Ultra, ups the ante with an even larger frame than the other THICC models, to make room for three cooling fans instead of two. It will also be one of the fastest Radeon RX 5700 XT cards out there, assuming the leaked specs are correct. This will be the fourth THICC entry in XFX's Radeon RX 5700 XT lineup. Ones that have already launched include the following... XFX Radeon RX 5700 XT THICC II (RX-57XT826D6) XFX Radeon RX 5700 XT THICC II Ultra (RX-57XT828D6) XFX Radeon RX 5700 XT THICC II Ultra (RX-57XT8DBD6) I'm not clear on why there are two separate SKUs for the Radeon RX 5700...

Earlier today, AMD launched desktop and mobile versions of its new mainstream 7nm Navi-based Radeon RX 5500 Series. In our initial story, we briefly touched on the MSI Alpha 15, which will be the first gaming laptop to ship with the Radeon RX 5500M graphics cards. Now, MSI is officially announcing the Alpha 15, and is giving us all of the pertinent specs on its new 15-inch gaming monster. The Radeon RX 5500M inside the laptop has 6.4 billion transistors, 22 compute units, 1408 stream processors, a 1448MHz game clock, 1645MHz boost clock and 4.6 TFLOPs compete performance. Given that this a mainstream GPUs, it’s limited to just 4GB of GDDR6 in this mobile configuration. The Radeon RX... Read more...
Not long after recent rumors of incoming entry-level Navi-based Radeon graphics cards started making the rounds, AMD has made an official announcement of its new Radeon RX 5500 family. As its naming implies, these new graphics cards will slot in beneath the existing Radeon RX 5700 family. AMD is making available two version of the Radeon RX 5500: the Radeon RX 5500 Series for desktops and the Radeon RX 5500M, which is the first 7nm Navi-based GPU for laptops. Both variants feature a total of 22 compute units, 1408 stream processors and a 128-bit memory interface. The main differences between the two come down to the amount of GDDR6 memory onboard and clock speeds. The Radeon RX 5500... Read more...
It appears as though AMD is getting ready flesh out its Navi lineup with another SKU, the Radeon RX 5500 XT. According to leaked information, AMD will soon announce both desktop and mobile variants of the new part, which will primarily compete against NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 1650 in the mid-range graphics card market. Bearing in mind that none of this is official, it is said the Radeon RX 5500 XT will feature a Navi 14 GPU. If the leaked information is accurate, it will have 1,408 stream processors paired with 8GB of GDDR6 memory, albeit on a 128-bit bus. This would essentially make it a replacement to the Radeon RX 560 in the mid-range segment. Here's how the two compare... Radeon RX 5500 XT: 1,408... Read more...
While it might not exactly be the case right now, AMD is expecting to expand its Navi graphics architecture into a whole family of products from the low-end to the high-end. At the moment, we currently only have three SKUs that are firmly entrenched in the mid-range sector of the market: Radeon RX 5700, Radeon RX 5700 XT, and Radeon RX 5700 XT 50th Anniversary Edition. However, there are reportedly two separate "factions" of Navi chips that are on the horizon to join the existing Navi 10 cards. Navi 14 allegedly references a cutdown version of the chip that will be used in entry-level cards, while Navi 12 refers to an even bigger chip that would go up against NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080...

AMD is rumored to be bringing its Navi GPU architecture over to mid-range gaming laptops by way of a pair of two new GPUs, the Radeon RX 5500M and Radeon RX 5300M. If the leaked specifications and benchmarks are legit, these could end up being compelling GPU options in the mobile space, offering gamers somewhat powerful alternatives to NVIDIA's mobile product stack. These types of things should always be taken with a pinch of salt, though it does make sense for AMD to port its Radeon DNA (RDNA) architecture to the mobile side of the tracks. As things currently stand, Navi is available in exactly three consumer desktop products—Radeon RX 5700 XT 50th Anniversary Edition, Radeon RX 5700 XT,... Read more...
