Earlier this month, we saw Lenovo pull the wraps off a new ThinkBook S family of consumer laptops and today we're witnessing the launch of a revised family of ThinkPad business laptops. The new laptops include the ThinkPad X395, T495 and T495s, with the "5" at the end of the name representing that these are machines powered by AMD processors. ThinkPad X395 Whereas the ThinkPad X390 makes use of 8th generation Intel Core processors, the ThinkPad X395 is available with up to 2nd generation AMD Ryzen 7 Pro mobile processors backed by Radeon Vega graphics. You'll find a 13.3-inch Full HD display framed with thin bezels and support for up to 32GB of DDR4 memory and up to a 1TB NVMe... Read more...
Yesterday, Apple refreshed its iPad mini family and introduced an all-new 10.5-inch iPad Air model. Today, it’s time for Apple turn to its attention to its oft-neglected iMac family, which hasn’t seen an update in nearly 700 days. With today’s update, Apple is bringing some significant processor and GPU upgrades to the 21.5-inch and 27-inch variants of the iMac. Given nearly two years between upgrades, you shouldn’t be too surprised to learn that Apple has fitted its base 21.5-inch iMac ($1,299) with an 8th generation 3.6GHz quad-core Intel Core i3 processor, which are backed with 8GB of RAM and a 1TB hard drive. Graphics are handled by an AMD Radeon Pro 555X.... Read more...
The driver situation for Ryzen APUs with Radeon Vega Graphics hasn't exactly been optimal (to say the least) since the chips initially launched back in 2017. Whereas the company's mainline Radeon graphics cards (i.e. Radeon RX 580, Radeon RX Vega 56/64) get continual driver updates to provide Game Day-0 support, Ryzen processors with Radeon Graphics have been relegated to quarterly releases. That all changes with the arrival of the Radeon Software Adrenalin 2019 19.2.3 driver package. From this moment forward, all future Radeon Software Adrenalin releases will support Ryzen APUs, meaning that customers with these products will be able to enjoy the same performance benefits, patches...

Apple first announced its professional market-minded iMac Pro at WWDC in June, and six months later, the company is finally getting around to releasing the computer. Apple confirmed today that the all-in-one iMac Pro will be available starting December 14th, and it will have a starting price of $4,999 (which was previously known). The original iMac family has been an unabashed consumer-centric machine with admirable processing performance, and passable graphics (even offering dedicated GPUs in some configurations). However, the iMac Pro throws everything but the kitchen sink at the all-in-one form-factor, including Intel's current Xeon W series of processors that were designed for mainstream... Read more...
Apple first gave us a hint that a more pro-oriented iMac was on the way back in April, and today at WWDC, the company gave us an early look at what will ship later this year: the iMac Pro. As you might expect, the iMac Pro has the same basic design language as the consumer-oriented iMac, but it cranks the hardware specs to the max — in fact, it’s the most powerful Mac ever produced according to Apple. The iMac Pro will be available in 8-, 10-, and 18-core (36 threads) Xeon configurations all while maintaining the familiar all-in-one form-factor. You’ll get a 27.5-inch 5K display, but powering that display is the big dog in graphics from AMD — the all-new Radeon Vega GPU, which will provide 11... Read more...
