The Zen CPU microarchitecture has been a resounding success for AMD, and that winning streak is likely to extend with the release of the company's third-generation, 7nm Zen 2-based Ryzen 3000 processors. However, although AMD has been making inroads by carving deeper into Intel's share of the processor market, it hasn't been a knockout punch. According to HP Inc. CEO Dion Weisler, much of the trepidation in shifting to AMD processors comes from its commercial customers that tend to be more on the conservative side with respect to processor choice. These customers have been reliant on Intel for so long that they are pretty much programmed into thinking that there is no other comparable solutions... Read more...
We've got some bad news for anyone that was hoping to hold on to their AMD 300- or 400-Series motherboard for a little while adopting new Ryzen 3000 Zen 2 processors. Yesterday, we reported that Ryzen 3000 processor will work on X470 and B450 motherboards without any performance penalty, which was definitely good news to hear. However, we're learning today that we can't say the same for PCIe 4.0 support. There are a number of PCIe 4.0 devices on the way including the Radeon RX 5700 Navi series of graphics cards and SSDs from Corsair and Gigabyte (among others). There was some scuttlebutt in the past few weeks that some existing X470 and X370 motherboards would... Read more...
Last week, AMD officially rolled out the initial members of its 7nm Zen 2-based Ryzen 3000 family. The processors promise higher instructions per clock (IPC), lower operating temperatures, faster clocks, and higher core counts (as witnessed by the 12-core Ryzen 9 3900X). However, what many enthusiasts want to know is how will these new Ryzen 3000 processors perform on older motherboards. We already know that third-generation Ryzen 3000 processors are officially supported on X470 and B450 motherboards. In addition, motherboards running the X370 and B350 chipsets will also support the new processors with a "Selective Beta BIOS Update". Now, PCGamesN is confirming that enthusiasts... Read more...
For the first time ever, AMD on Monday delivered the opening keynote at Computex 2019, and the company did not disappoint.

Computex 2019 is less than a week away, which means that the rumormill is gearing up at a rapid pace ahead of the show. Over the past few months, we've been getting a flood of information on incoming 7nm Zen 2-based Ryzen 3000 processors from AMD. At first, we thought that the family would top out with 12-core processors, but we've since learned that there could be 16-core SKUs along for the ride as well. The latest leak from the within AMD provides some additional alleged confirmation on these high-end Ryzen 3000 processors. The most impressive of the bunch will be the unnamed 16-core beast, which reportedly discovered running Cinebench R15 at 4.2GHz across all 16 cores. In this configuration,... Read more...
We are exactly one week away from the start of Computex 2019, and barring a surprise change of plans, AMD will announce its new generation Ryzen 3000 series of desktop processors based on its Zen 2 CPU architecture. AMD is also expected to unveil its X570 chipset. Ahead of the event, a block diagram has emerged showing the PCie makeup of the upcoming chipset. To be clear, existing owners of X470, B450, X370, and B350 motherboards will in most cases just need a BIOS update to support the upcoming crop of processors—AMD is retaining support for its AM4 socket. That may or may not be the case for budget-oriented A320 and A300 motherboards (whenever we inquire about that, motherboard makers... Read more...
AMD's plan from the beginning of Zen was to have a single socket last for several generations of processor releases. Making good on that promise, AMD's upcoming Ryzen 3000 series of desktop CPUs will once again utilize the same socket, with many existing motherboards getting support by way of a BIOS update. Getting a head start on the launch, Gigabyte today announced new BIOS upgrades for its X470 and B450 motherboards. Gigabyte says its engineers have spent time testing and validating many of its existing motherboards with the newest BIOS updates to ensure full support for Ryzen 3000, and "top notch compatibility." As it stands right now, the latest BIOS releases are F40 and later, depending... Read more...
