One year after launching Zen and reasserting itself into the high-end sector of the processor scene, AMD is getting ready to launch a new round of processors based on its optimized Zen+ architecture, followed by Zen 2 next year and Zen 3 in 2020. That will not be the end of the line, however, as AMD's Senior Fellow in Design Engineering, Mike Clark, confirmed in a round table discussion that work on Zen 5 has already begun.

Back in late October, Amazon broke out its pricing gun and started slashing prices on AMD's Ryzen Threadripper processors.

If you're looking for a HEDT processor with plenty of cores to keep your applications humming, it'll be hard to pass up these savings: Ryzen Threadripper 1950X... Read more...

AMD is getting ready to flesh out its Ryzen lineup with its new Ryzen 5 series consisting of 4-core and 6-core processor options. These reasonably priced additions to the Ryzen family will arrive on April 11, or at least that is the official launch date that AMD announced last week. However, it appears that some opportunistic buyers were able to make a Ryzen 5 series purchase several weeks early. Over at Reddit, a user who goes by "marcosmcc" posted a couple pictures of a retail boxed Ryzen 5 1600 processor. He claims that "a fellow Brazilian" shared the pics with him, adding that his friend "recently... Read more...
