AMD’s Ryzen 3000 family of products have been on the market since July, and are complimented by X570-based hardware like the recently announced MSI X570 Unify gaming motherboard. TeamGroup has just announced two new products that leverage that Ryzen 3000/X570 platform.  First up is its new, AMD-optimized DARK Zα DDR4 gaming memory, which is available in 16GB (8GBx2) and 32GB (16GBx2) kits. The modules will be available in DDR4-3200, DDR4-3600, and DDR4-4000 speed ratings. The DDR4-3200 modules have timings of CL16-18-18-38, while the DDR4-3600 and DDR4-4000 modules are both rated at CL18-22-22-42. All of the modules are backed with a lifetime warranty and come with an aluminum... Read more...
It is pretty remarkable what kind of PC you can build around a small form factor (SFF) setup these days. To drive the point home, ASUS is launching a pair of miniature motherboards based on AMD's X570 chipset, either of which would enable a user to build a high-end PC with a Ryzen 3000 series serving as the system's heartbeat. First up is the ROG Strix X570-I Gaming, as shown above. This one is a mini-ITX motherboard—it measures 6.7 x 6.7 inches (17 x 17 cm), which is smaller than a micro-ATX motherboard. Though it's built to fit inside an ultra-compact case, there are some premium features to play with, such as Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) connectivity and automated system-wide tuning. Here are... Read more...
A couple of leaked slides from AMD have found their way to the web, and they show a high level overview of what the Sunnyvale chip designer has in store for consumers through 2022. There are no big surprises, though—the slides essentially reiterate what we already know, which is that Zen 4 in the works on the CPU side, and more Navi GPUs are on the way. The slides are part of an "AMD Corporate Deck-September 2019" presentation, which we imagine will be made public whole in the not-too-distant future. In the meantime, let's have a looked at leaked slides, courtesy of Guru3D, starting with the one focused on Zen... Zen and Zen+ are bunched together, though they actually represent two different...

The memory wars are raging in the enthusiast community, and Corsair is the latest to throw down the gauntlet. The company has just announced its latest Vengeance LPX DDR4 memory modules which top out at an impressive 4,866MHz. Corsair says that these modules will work on any modern desktop motherboard, but they have been specifically designed for maximum performance on AMD's X570 platform that underpins third-generation Ryzen 3000 Zen 2 processors. Getting more down to brass tacks, Corsair has certified the "record breaking" performance of these 4,866MHz modules on ASUS ROG Crosshair VIII Formula, MSI MEG X570 GODLIKE, and MSI Prestige X570 Creation motherboards. At this time, the Vengeance... Read more...
AMD heard the complaints from Ryzen 3000 series CPU owners that some chips were not hitting their advertised boost clocks as expected, and has issued new firmware code to its hardware partners to address the issue. What this means is, if you own a third-generation Ryzen processor, be on the lookout for a new BIOS update for your motherboard. The issue came to light when renowned overclocker Roman "der8auer" Hartung conducted an online survey of Ryzen 3000 CPU owners to see how many people were hitting the advertised boost clocks on their chips. Surprisingly, there were quite a few people said they weren't. On the low end of the spectrum, just 5.6 percent of Ryzen 9 3900X owners who participated... Read more...
AMD's third-generation Ryzen 3000 processors based on 7nm Zen 2 architecture have been an absolute hit for the company. Not only are the processors providing significant boosts in single-threaded app performance, but the 7nm process tech allows the chips to run cooler than their Intel counterparts while ramping up the core counts to as high as 16 cores with the incoming Ryzen 9 3950X.  However, now that Ryzen 3000 chips are in the hands of enthusiasts all over the world, there have been some concerns raised about max boost frequencies for the processors. Needless to say, AMD has been watching all of this activity in the enthusiast community very closely and it responded in... Read more...
Prominent overclocker and enthusiast Roman Hartung, who goes by "der8auer" online, recently conducted a survey of AMD Ryzen 3000 CPU owners to see how many people are hitting the advertised boost clocks on their chips. The results are a bit surprising. If we are to take the survey at face value, then many third-generation Ryzen processors are never reaching their top speeds. Around 2,700 people participated in the survey, most of which reported their findings from running a Ryzen 7 3700X processor. It is one of five Ryzen 3000 chips represented. Here's a breakdown... Ryzen 9 3900X: 26 percent Ryzen 7 3800X: 8 percent Ryzen 7 3700X: 40 percent Ryzen 5 3600X: 6 percent Ryzen 5 3600: 21 percent... Read more...
For the second month in a row, sales of AMD's third-generation Ryzen processors are outpacing Intel's chips at one of the biggest computer hardware retailers in Germany. The freshly updated data bodes well for AMD's latest desktop CPUs, and if expanding the breakdown to include previous generation Zen processors, AMD holds a commanding lead over Intel at this particular retailer. The reason this kind of data matters is because AMD has fought hard to regain relevance in the higher-end desktop space. Do-it-yourself (DIY) system builders now have a wider field of processors to choose from, as both AMD and Intel have viable options spanning budget builds all the way up to high-end desktop (HEDT)...

The last time that we reported on CPU sales data from German eTailer Mindfactory (which was colorfully compiled by Ingebor), AMD's family of Ryzen 2000 processors was putting a serious hurting on Intel's long-running dominance in the field. AMD's aggressive pricing along with the overall excellent performance of Zen+ processors put the company at a competitive advantage over Intel's offerings. Here we are a few months later and AMD is continuing to eat Intel's lunch per Mindfactory sales data. AMD has steadily been increasing its market share, and even its revenue share compared to Intel, which is quite interesting to say the least. Being that these numbers are from July, this was the...

Earlier this month, G.Skill fully embraced AMD's brand new Ryzen 3000 processors and the complimenting X570 motherboards. At the time, G.Skill was promoting Trident Z Neo memory that topped out at heady DDR4-3600 speeds. Today, however, the Trident Z Neo family gets a boost to 3800MHz speeds. The new memory kits have timings of CL14-16-16-36 and are available in two DIMM kits: 8GBx2 (16GB) or 8GBx4 (32GB). According to G.Skill, the modules are constructed using Samsung's legendary B-dies and will stand up to the rigors of overclocking that they will be subject to in the hands of enthusiasts. Trident Z Neo DDR4-3800 bandwidth testing One thing that we should mention is that given its... Read more...
With the launch of AMD's X570 Ryzen 3000 platform, PCIe 4.0 support is now available to the masses. Although the physical support is there, actual hardware that can take advantage of PCIe 4.0 is not exactly plentiful. There is AMD's own Radeon RX 5700 family of GPUs and a handful of PCIe 4.0 SSDs. On that last front, Sabrent's 1TB Rocket NVMe SSD, which uses Toshiba 96-layer BiCS4 TLC NAND, is now steeply discounted not long after it was first made available to the public. The SSD is listed on Amazon at a price of $199.98, which represents a 40 percent discount from its usual price $319.99.  That price gets you amazing transfer speeds that are unmatched by today's...

AMD is looking for a few good men and women to test out a new chipset driver that should help to resolve compatibility problems previously discovered between new Ryzen 3000 processors and Destiny 2. When enthusiasts first started taking delivery of their new Ryzen 3000 processors, they quickly vented that Destiny 2 would no longer run. First of all, AMD's Robert Hallock apologized or the inconvenience to the enthusiast community this week in a reddit post. "This is indeed something we caught after launch. Plain and simple: I'm sorry," said Hallock. "It is not a title that is in our standard test suite, as it's difficult to reliably benchmark." To that end, the new chipset driver is designed...

Upgrading to a brand-spanking-new Ryzen 3000 series processor is about as easy as it gets, thanks in large part to AMD recycling its AM4 socket for another around. All that is required in some instances is a BIOS update. Be that as it may, certain users may find that updating the BIOS is a bit tricky, and in such cases AMD has offered to loan out a boot kit at no cost. AMD's boot kit consists of an Athlon 200GE processor and an accompanying cooler. The purpose of the loaner CPU and cooler is so that users who own an X470 or B450 motherboard can fire up their rig and apply a BIOS update, so that it will boot with their new Ryzen 3000 series CPU. Most ssers who are upgrading from an existing setup... Read more...
