Are you getting ready to build a new PC? If so, check out this latest deal on AMD's Ryzen 5 3600. It is an excellent processor based on AMD's latest generation Zen 2 CPU architecture, and it is on sale at Amazon for $167. That nearly matches the lowest price it has ever been (outside of buying it used), and is a heck of a bargain. The Ryzen 5 3600 is a 6-core/12-thread CPU with a 3.6GHz base clock and up to a 4.2GHz boost clock. It also features 32MB of L3 cache and 3MB of L2 cache, and has a 65W TDP. As a Zen 2 part, it is built on a 7-nanometer FinFET manufacturing process. While not the fastest CPU on the market, it is certainly a capable chip for gaming, content creation, and so forth. AMD...

AMD has encountered a lot of success with its Ryzen 3000 family of processors, which offer a compelling balance of performance, value, and power efficiency that gamers are looking for. While all of us would likely love to have a 12-core Ryzen 9 3900X or 16-core Ryzen 9 3950X in our gaming rigs, some of us with more limited budgets are instead looking at processors in the sub-$200 range.  That leads us to the Ryzen 5 3600, which is available right now from Newegg for a low $164.99. The retailer typically sells the processor for $179.99, but it is discounting the processor by $15 with the coupon code EMCDEDR23. You of course get free shipping with the processor, and it also comes with... Read more...
Earlier this week, we brought you a rather hot deal on the AMD Ryzen 5 3600 processor, which was available for just $165 after a discount code and free shipping at Newegg. Today, Newegg is offering a new combo deal that pairs the processor with a mainstream ASUS X570-based motherboard. The retailer is putting the two products together for $284.98, which it says is a $40 discount from their normal sales price. In the case of the ASUS Prime X570-P, being that it is an X570 motherboard, it is fully PCIe 4.0 compliant. There are dual M.2 slots for your PCIe 4.0 SSDs, USB 3.2 Gen 2 support, an Aura Sync RGB header, support for DDR4-4400 memory, and ASUS OptiMem support on the quad DIMM slots.... Read more...
AMD’s Ryzen 3000 family of Zen 2 processors are roughly a week away from launch, and enthusiasts are chomping at the bit to see if performance lives up to expectations. Luckily, leaked benchmarks for the family have been promising and the latest shows some significant gains in one area where Intel has traditionally held the upper hand: single-threaded performance.  AMD’s Ryzen 5 3600 is supposed to be a midrange processor, but its single-core performance is already flagship worthy. Although early Ryzen 3000 benchmarks that we’ve seen have centered around Geekbench, this new result is from a Passmark CPUMark single-thread test. In this particular test, the processor...

All indications so far is that AMD has brought the boom with its third generation Ryzen processor family launch, and that its Zen 2 CPU architecture based on a 7-nanometer manufacturing process is the real deal. The caveat is that most of the indications have come from AMD directly—at Computex, the company showcased a Ryzen 9 3900X outperforming an Intel Core i9-9920X. Whether it plays out that way once silicon gets in the hands of reviewers and embargoes are lifted remains to be seen. In the meantime, some encouraging benchmarks have leaked online. AMD focused its keynote on the launch of the Ryzen 9 3900X ($499), Ryzen 7 3800X ($399), and Ryzen 7 3700X ($329). However, there are two other... Read more...
