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...
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...
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...
Whether you're a dyed-in-the-wool Radeon fanboy or just a general PC gamer, you've got to be looking ahead with some excitement to the release of AMD's Radeon RX 7900 series graphics cards in mid-December. AMD's presentation left us with some questions, but Frank Azor, AMD's Chief Architect of Gaming Solutions &... Read more...
AMD graphics card partner PowerColor is teasing a devilish new product, just hours ahead of AMD's highly anticipated RDNA 3 launch event. PowerColor doesn't mention any particular GPU by name, but we don't think Sherlock Holmes will have to leave Baker Street to solve this mystery. In the image that accompanies... 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...
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...

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...
Developer Yuri Bubliy has shared some AMD Radeon performance presets, which he has aptly named the “Radeon Monster Profiles” or RMP. Upon applying these skillfully tuned collections of Radeon RDNA 2 GPU settings, Bubliy claims users will be able to take advantage of performance gains as high as 13%, and even gain... Read more...
We are headed into a flurry of high-profile product launches from the likes of NVIDIA, Intel, and AMD. The Big Three are all releasing, or expected to release, new generations of their CPUs, GPUs, or both. Of all of these, though, the subject we have probably heard the least about is AMD’s upcoming RDNA 3... Read more...
Memory bandwidth is one of the most important specifications that determines a graphics card's performance potential. It reflects the maximum data throughput rate between the GPU chip itself and its memory packages. That's why hardware nerds like us are always quite keen to hear what the final shipping memory speed... Read more...
PC hardware companies work in funny ways sometimes. When AMD had a new driver ready that added extra features with arguably niche appeal, like its AMD Link in-home streaming tech, it was very excited to tell us about it, and have us tell you about it. However, when it released a new driver recently with real... Read more...
AMD has launched its Adrenalin Edition 22.7.1 driver software with some welcome and important changes. The new driver adds support for a completely new feature for Radeon GPU users dubbed AMD Noise Suppression. Secondly, if you enjoy OpenGL gaming titles, you might see up to an 85% performance uplift using this new... Read more...
520 mm²—that's the size of the Navi 21 GPU used in the Radeon RX 6800, RX 6800 XT, RX 6900 XT, and RX 6950 XT. Even though it's dwarfed by NVIDIA's biggest GPUs, that's still a seriously sizable chip. Rumors had placed the top-end RDNA 3-based part in the Radeon RX 7000 series at a slightly larger size, circa 600 mm²... Read more...
It's been rumored for a long time that AMD's next-generation Radeons will use a chiplet design rather than being a single monolithic processor. AMD confirmed as much to the world at its Financial Analyst Day earlier this month, but we still didn't know exactly what that meant for the chips. After all, when we say... Read more...
NVIDIA's DLSS is one of those few technologies that comes along every so often and legitimately delivers the seemingly impossible: more with less. AMD's first attempt at challenging DLSS wasn't quite as advanced; while the original FidelityFX Super Resolution had its advantages, the image quality wasn't always in the... 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...

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...
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...
