AMD is just days away from launching its third-generation Ryzen 3000 processors which are based on 7nm Zen 2 architecture. With this in mind, retailers are trying to clear out their existing inventory of second-generation Ryzen processors to make room for new stock. One of those retailers is MicroCenter, which is dramatically cutting the price of the Ryzen 7 2700X, which is the current flagship of the X470 consumer desktop platform. The processor normally sells for $319.99 at MicroCenter, but is now available for a low price of $199.99. On top of that, the retailer is also offering a $30 discount on an eligible motherboard when you purchase the processor. We have to forewarn you though;... Read more...
Over the past week or so, we've seen leaked information and leaks alleging the arrival of 50th anniversary versions of the Ryzen 7 2700X processor and Radeon VII graphics card. Today, AMD officially confirmed those early reports. The Ryzen 7 2700X Gold Edition is distinguished from the regular run-of-the-mill processor thanks to a laser-etched signature of AMD CEO Lisa Su on the integrated heat spreader and special gold AMD50 packaging. You won't have to pay extra to get this special edition -- it has the same $329 MSRP as the regular Ryzen 7 2700X processor -- and will be available in limited quantities in North America, Latin America, Europe, Greater China and Asia Pacific...

More information about AMD's upcoming Ryzen 7 2700X 50th Anniversary Edition processor is finding its way online ahead of its anticipated release next week. If the latest leaked images are any indication, part of what will make the Anniversary Edition SKU unique from the regular Ryzen 7 2700X is AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su's laser engraved signature. Here's a look at a press render of the retail packaging with the CPU alongside it... Source: Connection.com via Videocardz PC Connection, an IT solutions company headquartered in New Hampshire, appears to have jumped the gun by listing the unreleased SKU early. The product page has been taken offline (undoubtedly either at the behest of AMD, or voluntarily... Read more...
AMD is getting a slight jump on its 50th anniversary by prepping a couple of special edition parts for release just ahead of the big day. If the latest leak proves real, then on Monday, April 29, AMD will unveil 50th anniversary editions of its Zen-based Ryzen 7 2700X processor and Vega-based Radeon VII graphics card, both in special packaging to commemorate the occasion. We have already seen references to the anniversary edition Ryzen 7 2700X, which showed up in a retail listing last week. At the time, however, there was no mention of there also being a special version of the Radeon VII. We still do not have a lot of details to go on, though it is a reasonable bet that these will be available... Read more...
Well, what do we have here? It appears as though AMD is getting ready to launch a special version of its Ryzen 7 2700X processor to commemorate 50 years in the semiconductor business, a milestone it will reach just over two weeks from now, on May 1. If you recall, Intel did something similar in celebration of 40 years of x86 computing with its Core i7-8086K 40th Anniversary CPU. It seems hard to believe, but AMD has been around for five decades, coming into existence less than four months after Richard Nixon replaced Lyndon B. Johnson as President of the United States. More specifically, AMD was founded on May 1, 1969, by Jerry Sanders, an electrical engineer, and a bunch of his colleagues from... Read more...
Now is a fantastic time to build a high-end AMD Ryzen system. Yes, Intel just recently launched its 9th generation Core processor family culmination in the 8-core/16-thread Core i9-9900K, and that chip is sure to be a beast. However, we spotted AMD's Ryzen 7 2700X selling for as low as $279.99, and you shave another $30 off if you bundle it with a motherboard. The Ryzen 7 2700X is the flagship part in AMD's second generation Ryzen lineup in the mainstream desktop CPU category. It has the same number of cores and threads as the Core i9-9900K, and is clocked at 3.7GHz to 4.3GHz, with 20MB of smart prefetch cache (L2 + L3) to boot. It's a burly part for sure, and it's now priced below $300. If you... Read more...
Intel and its hired benchmarking gun, Principled Technologies, have come under fire for the benchmarking methodology used to validate the Core i9-9900K as the "world's fastest gaming processor." At the heart of the issue is the latter's decision to enable Game Mode on AMD's Ryzen 7 2700X, resulting in a performance disparity upwards of 50 percent compared to the Core i9-9900K. Principled Technologies has since retested the Ryzen 7 2700X in Creator Mode, and while the new data still has the Core i9-9900K coming out ahead, the disparity isn't nearly as dramatic. As you might already know, the Core i9-9900K is Intel's flagship CPU in its recently announced 9th generation Core processor family, and... Read more...
Intel made a splash when it finally introduced its oft-leaked 9th generation Core lineup consisting of three initial SKUs, the Core i9-9900K, Core i7-9700K, and Core i5-9600K. The launch event was high on hype—Intel called the Core i9-9900K the best gaming chip in the world, and then showed off a set of gaming benchmarks performed by an outside company, Principled Technologies. Not without controversy, Principled Technologies has taken to defending its testing methodology, which showed the Core i9-9900K trouncing AMD's Ryzen 7 2700X. Let's back up a moment. In case you missed it, the Core i9-9900K is Intel's first-ever 8-core/16-thread desktop processor in the mainstream category. It's... Read more...
Another day means another leak in the tech sector, this latest one related to Intel's unannounced 9th generation Core i9-9900K processor. This 8-core/16-thread chip has shown up in numerous leaks already. In this newest one, we get yet another glimpse of performance, with the Core i9-9900K being run through 3DMark's Time Spy benchmark. We'll get to the numbers in a moment, but first let's talk about the specs. If all the leaks and rumors end up being true, the Core i9-9900K will feature a 3.6GHz base clock and 4.7GHz all-core boost clock, and will boost to 5GHz when utilizing only one or two cores. It also has 16MB of L3 cache and a 95W TDP. It's expected to retail for around $450. The Core i9-9900K... Read more...
At the start of the week, we brought you news that an overclocking enthusiast by the name of TSAIK was able to overclock both a Ryzen 5 2600X and a Ryzen 7 2700X to 5.8GHz using liquid nitrogen (LN2). At the time, we pondered what overclocking fiend Der8auer could achieve with the same chips. Well, it didn't take long, and Der8auer has set the bar higher with a 6GHz+ overclock on the Ryzen 7 2700X. He achieved this feat with the Ryzen 7 2700X installed in an ASUS ROG Crosshair VII Hero AMD X470 motherboard. As with other insane overclocks, Der8auer used LN2 to achieve his overclock, which in this case dialed in at exactly 6,009.34MHz.  As you might already know, the Ryzen... Read more...
In case you haven't been paying attention to what's going on in the AMD world over the past week, the company's second-generation Zen+ Ryzen processors have been announced, and will begin shipping on April 19th. The family includes the Ryzen 5 2600/2600X and the Ryzen 7 2700/2700X. Given all the leaks over the past month, it should come as no surprise that there are more than a few of these processors in the hands of enthusiasts around the globe who are eager to see how far they can push them. User TSAIK has submitted CPU-Z results for overclocked examples of both the Ryzen 5 2600X and the Ryzen 7 2700X, and things are looking rather promising right out of the gate. The Ryzen...

We are still a couple of weeks away from AMD launching its second generation Ryzen desktop processor lineup, otherwise known as Pinnacle Ridge. Leading up to the launch, however, it appears that a few customers have been able to get their paws on some of the new chips through online retailers turning a blind eye to embargoes. This has led to some early benchmarking and overclocking analysis. Before we get to all that, let's briefly go over the architecture and clear up any potential confusion that might exist. Pinnacle Ridge is an optimized version of AMD's first generation Ryzen processors (Summit Ridge), and is built on a smaller manufacturing process (12 nanometers versus 14 nanometers). AMD...

In about a month, AMD will release its second generation Ryzen lineup with a handful of new processors based on its 12-nanometer Zen+ architecture, otherwise known as Pinnacle Ridge. Leading up to the launch, the upcoming Ryzen 7 2700X has been spotted in numerous leaks, the latest of which is an Amazon listing. Same goes for a few other second generation Ryzen chips. If the listings are accurate, (or were accurate, since they've been pulled offline), we know what kind of specs to expect. Starting at the top, the Ryzen 7 2700X (YD270XBGAFBOX) is an 8-core/16-thread processor with a 3.7GHz base clock and 4.35GHz boost clock, according to the Amazon listing. Those are the same specs we have seen... Read more...
AMD is set to releases its second generation Ryzen processors in mid-April, which will bring to the table faster clocks, performance optimizations, and presumably better power efficiency. As to the performance of the new parts, we have been getting sneak peeks through a series of leaks. The latest is an appearance by AMD's upcoming Ryzen 7 2700X processor on Geekbench. Assuming AMD is also prepping a Ryzen 7 2800X to hang its flagship banner in the mainstream consumer desktop processor category, the Ryzen 7 2700X will sit one rung below, effectively replacing the current generation Ryzen 7 1700X. It will have 8 cores and 16 threads, with a 3.7GHz base clockspeed and 4.35GHz boost clockspeed,... Read more...
