AMD finds itself in a relatively good place right now. The company's Zen CPU architecture is a success, and it will not be long before its third-generation Ryzen processors make a debut, with single-core performance that is rumored to close the gap with Intel. If the next-gen CPUs live up to the hype, and if Navi ends up being a worthwhile solution in the GPU space, AMD could see big sales gains in the second half of the year. That would be good timing for AMD. Coming off a $1.42 billion quarter and capping off a second straight year of "significant revenue growth," AMD forecasts a 12 percent decline in revenue sequentially, and 24 percent year-over-year due to "continued softness in the graphics...

The age old question when it comes to the do-it-yourself (DIY) PC market is should you build now or wait? In most cases, waiting is a slippery slope into an endless period of PC purgatory, where you find yourself constantly holding out for the next best thing. However, there are certain times when waiting does make sense. Now is one of those times, because everything we are hearing suggests that AMD is going to bring the boom with its Ryzen 3000 series processors, and very soon. Ryzen 3000 is based on AMD's Zen 2 architecture, which we have known about for quite some time—it's been on AMD's roadmap since the beginning. What's notable about Zen 2 is it marks a transition to a 7-nanometer... Read more...
It will not be too terribly long before AMD launches its next-generation Ryzen 3000 series, a new line of processors based on its Zen 2 architecture. In the meantime, there are plenty of leaks and rumors to fill the gap. Falling into the former category, what appears to be an engineering sample of a quad-core Ryzen 3000 series CPU has found its way onto SiSoftware Sandra's database. Sandra is a popular diagnostic, analysis, and benchmarking utility that can provide oodles of information about your setup. We use it in some of our reviews to test memory bandwidth and processor performance. Incidentally, it's also a popular landing place for unreleased products to make a cameo, as AMD's Ryzen 3000...

ASUS is ready to deliver some potent laptop gaming goodness to customers in the coming months that feature the best of both worlds: mobile AMD Ryzen 3000 series processors and the latest NVIDIA GeForce GTX Turing-based GPUs. This information comes courtesy of noted leaker TUM APISAK, who posted his findings to Twitter. Two models are detailed in a 3DMark result that was found, and they include the ASUS ROG GU502DU and the ASUS TUF Gaming FX505DU.  The ROG GU502DU comes packing a Ryzen 7 3750H processor (4 cores, 8 threads). As we already know, this 35W processor has a base clock of 2.3GHz, but can boost to 4GHz. Even though the APU has integrated Radeon Vega graphics, ASUS... Read more...
Have you heard that AMD is launching its next-generation Navi GPU architecture sometime this year? Of course you have, assuming you follow technology trends even just a little bit, because it has been the subject of numerous leaks and rumors. That will continue to be the case until AMD finally lifts the lid on Navi, and if the latest rumor is right, that will happen around a month after the company unveils its Ryzen 3000 series of desktop processors. As you might already know, both Ryzen 3000 and Navi are being built on a 7-nanometer manufacturing process. AMD has gone all-in with 7nm nodes, and is retroactively applying the technology to already launched architectures, namely Vega—the... Read more...
The enthusiast community is eagerly awaiting the arrival of AMD's third-generation Ryzen 3000 series processors. These Ryzen 3000 processors are based on 7-nanometer Zen 2 architecture, which is codenamed Matisse, and will take the fight directly to Intel’s popular Core processor family. AMD gave us our first glimpse at an 8-core, 16-thread Ryzen 3000 processor at this year's Consumer Electronics Shows, where it put up performance comparable to Intel's mighty Core i9-9900K. Now, a new report from RedGamingTech suggests that these new mainstream processors will come to market in July. More specifically, the publication says that its sources have indicated a launch...

Leading up the official unveil of AMD's third-generation Ryzen desktop processors, we were anticipating the arrival of higher-end 12- and 16-core SKUs based on previous leaks. But when CEO Lisa Su took to the stage, she only gave us a sneak peek at an 8-core, 12-thread Zen 2-based Ryzen 3000 series processor.  However, Su later hinted in a post-keynote interview that "you might expect that we will have more than eight cores." Well, here we are with a UserBenchmark database entry that was uncovered by notorious hardware sleuth Tum Apisak. The listing is for a 12-core, 24-thread SKU using the AM4 socket, which points directly to this being a mainstream Ryzen desktop processor.... Read more...
For all the gamers out there, the new 7nm Radeon VII was the primary focal point for AMD during Lisa Su's CES 2019 keynote address. However, Su did give a quick look at AMD's upcoming Zen 2-based Ryzen 3000 series processors, which will begin shipping in mid-2019. While leaked information had suggested that there would be SKUs with up to 16 cores and 32 threads, there was no mention of such multi-core craziness today. Instead, Su only mentioned that there would be chips available with up to 8 cores and 16 threads. In fact, on display was a prototype 8-core Ryzen 3000 system that was pitted against a Core i9-9900K -- Intel's current top enthusiast-class processor. In the Cinebench... Read more...
It looks as though Geekbench is providing us with some pretty good insight on incoming Ryzen 3000 Series processor from AMD. However, these aren't the 7nm Zen 2 monsters that we've been talking about in recent weeks. Instead, the leaks pertain to upcoming Picasso APUs that pair 12nm FinFET Raven Ridge CPU architecture with Vega GPUs. We have to give a shout out to Hexus, which managed to track down three separate Geekbench listing for upcoming Hewlett-Packard notebooks. The three machines are as follows: HP Laptop 17-ca1xxx AMD Ryzen 5 3500U (2.1GHz) with Radeon Vega Mobile Gfx 4 cores, 8 threads HP Laptop 17-ca1xxx AMD Ryzen 3 3300U (2.1GHz) with Radeon Vega...

We hope that you have a salt shaker nearby, because there are some rumored specs making the rounds via the internet concerning AMD's incoming third-generation Ryzen processors. While we're skeptical of these rumored specs, they do seemingly appear to be within reason given what we've seen with AMD's current Ryzen lineup and the potential of its 7nm Zen 2 architecture. Many of these processors will allegedly be announced next month at CES 2019 according to AdoredTV, which is a little earlier than usual for Ryzen products. We start off with the Ryzen 3 3300 series, which will contain three SKUs. All three SKUs will feature 6 cores and 12 threads, with then Ryzen 3 3300 serving as the... Read more...
The dust has barely had time to settle on AMD's X470 chipset, which launched alongside its second-generation Ryzen processors. Looking ahead, however, X570 is now right around the corner, or so the latest leak says. One thing that's interesting about the upcoming chipset is that it supposedly will offer PCI Express Gen 4 support. If the X570 does indeed end up supporting PCIe 4.0, as the latest leak indicates, it will be AMD's first chipset to do so, and the first consumer platform in general. It also stands to reason that AMD's upcoming Zen 2 processors (Ryzen 3000 series) will support PCIe 4.0 too. Whether the leaked information is accurate or not, it's impossible to say (AMD doesn't talk about... Read more...
