If we had a nickel for every time an Alder Lake processor appeared in a leaked benchmark run, we'd have a lot of nickels. We're not sure exactly how many, but probably enough to weigh our pockets down, at least. Adding to the pile is yet another set of benchmark results, this time with the unreleased Core i7-12700 appearing on Geekbench. The fresher the leak, the more interesting the data. Well, potentially—as we get closer to launch, the leaks should be more indicative of finalized hardware on updated platforms, and paint a more accurate picture of performance. We still should be cautious about reading too much into things, but current leaks are generally more interesting than ones that... Read more...
Late last week, we thought we struck it big when the popular AMD Ryzen 7 5800X processor fell to a low $396.99 at Amazon. However, Newegg is countering by lowering its price just a tad further, bringing the Ryzen 7 5800X down to just $389.99 after coupon code (87WK4BTS9A). AMD Ryzen 7 5800X 8-Core/16-Thread Processor $389.99 After Coupon @ Newegg Newegg's regular sale price for the processor is $399.99, but the discount code takes off $10 for an all-time low. That price gets you an 8-core/16-thread Zen 3 processor with base/boost clocks of 3.8GHz and 4.7GHz, respectively. So the Ryzen 7 5800X hits the sweet spot for gamers that crave excellent performance but don't want to pay for the more... Read more...
It's the last day of the workweek, and we've gathered a few deals for you on some hot tech products, including the just-announced Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 and Galaxy Watch 4 Classic. In addition, if you're more of an Apple fanboy (or fangirl), there are significant discounts to be had on the Apple Watch Series 6. Finally, we round things out with a PC-centric deal on the AMD Ryzen 7 3800X. Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 And Galaxy Watch 4 Classic Samsung announced the Galaxy Watch 4 and Galaxy Watch 4 Classic earlier this week, which are powered by the brand new 5nm Exynos W920 SoC. The Galaxy Watch 4 is available in 40mmm and 44mm cases sizes (aluminum), while the Galaxy Watch 4 Classic comes in 42mm... Read more...
This global chip shortage has been problematic for all of us in the enthusiast community, with this most acute impact being with the availability of graphics cards. However, the shortages have also extended to certain processors, particularly in AMD's Zen 3 family. Fortunately, for those that want a potent Zen 3 series processor that won't break the bank, Amazon is currently selling the Ryzen 7 5800X at a $50 discount. The processor has an MSRP of $449 but is now available for just $399. Considering that processors of this ilk were in incredibly short supply just a few months ago, swinging in the complete opposite direction with a discount to boot is definitely great news. The supply of Ryzen... Read more...
If you've been itching to build a new PC around Zen 3, or upgrade an existing one, good news—at least one of AMD's latest generation of Ryzen processors is markedly easier to obtain at the moment. There is still a silicon shortage affecting the general landscape (PC processors and graphics cards, as well as the latest generation game consoles). But the Ryzen 7 5800X appears to have broken through and is now widely available. Will it last? Good question, and only time will tell. Having said that, the Ryzen 7 5800X has sporadically popped up on retail shelves more often than the rest of the Zen 3 stack and other hardware that is in short supply. And as of this writing, it is available to... Read more...
Overclocking a CPU used to be a pretty simple process: change a bus speed or a multiplier, set an appropriate voltage, and voila: your Celeron 300A was running at 450 MHz, or your 600 MHz Duron was knocking on the 1 GHz barrier. These days with the advent of dynamic boost speeds and optimized frequency and voltage curves, processors intelligently push themselves up close to the limit straight out of the box. Setting a multiplier, even if it's higher than the base clock, might actually result in lower performance than stock speeds under certain conditions. The CPUs that likely have the most headroom, those a ways down the chain in Intel's lineup, for example, have locked multipliers and offer... Read more...
The age-old battle between AMD and Intel became interesting again when the former launched its Zen architecture in 2017, followed by Zen+ in 2018 and especially Zen 3 earlier this year. For the most part, Zen 3 put AMD ahead of its rival, in terms of overall performance, but will Intel retake the lead when Rocket Lake-S arrives next year? Geekbench may provide a clue. Rocket Lake-S is the codename for Intel's 11th Gen Core desktop processors featuring Cypress Cove cores, due out early next year. Unless things change, it will be Intel's last major consumer architecture built on a 14-nanometer node. Hoping to go out with a bang, Intel claims Rocket Lake-S will deliver a double-digit percent IPC... Read more...
AMD's Ryzen 5000 family of Zen 3 processors launched last week, and as most were expecting, the reviews were overwhelmingly positive. While AMD didn't take the performance crown in every single benchmark, its lead in the majority of them was significant enough that Intel was seeing taillights the majority of the time.  Needless to say, enthusiasts were eager to get their hands on the processors, only to be thwarted by "out of stock" messages from retailers and inventory that was depleted in mere minutes. Back in late September, Frank Azor, AMD Chief Architect of Gaming Solutions and Marketing, responded to a tweet that claimed AMD would fall victim to the same shortages that NVIDIA... Read more...
Are we enjoying the Chip Wars of 2020 yet? Things are just getting started, folks. AMD is talking a big game about Zen 3 and its Ryzen 5000 series, which will debut to retail next week. More than just lip service, multiple leaks suggest AMD has a real winner on its hands. This is evidenced yet again in a validated CPU-Z run underscoring the potential performance of the Ryzen 7 5800X. The Ryzen 7 5800X is one of four announced Zen 3 processors for the consumer desktop segment. It is only second from the rear, ahead of one other CPU and behind two higher end models, yet appears to pack quite the punch. Before we get to the performance figures and how it compares to Intel, let's have a quick rundown... Read more...
You have questions, I have questions, we all have questions about AMD's recently announced Ryzen 5000 series, and specifically regarding how actual performance stacks up with the company's claim of a 19 percent IPC (instructions per clock) uplift over the Ryzen 3000 series. Reliable answers will have to wait until the reviews are posted. Waiting is hard, though, and while caution should be taken when looking at unofficial benchmark runs, there is another set of interesting results to digest, this time within SiSoftware's SANDRA database. This latest round of leaked data follows the recent discovery of Zen 3 benchmark results within the Cinebench R20 database, which we wrote about earlier this... Read more...
Yowza! AMD made some bold claims during the unveiling of its Ryzen 5000 series, which will land on retail shelves next month. According to AMD, its upcoming Zen 3 chips are "the fastest gaming CPUs in the world," a boast that belonged to Intel up to this point. But is Zen 3 all that and a bag of sea salt and vinegar kettle cooked potato chips? Well, some early benchmark results on Cinebench R20 are certainly tasty. We'll get to the benchmark numbers in a moment, but first let's recap the Ryzen 5000 series lineup. AMD is kicking off the Zen 3 party with four chips: Ryzen 9 5950X ($799), Ryzen 9 5900X ($549), Ryzen 7 5800X ($449), and Ryzen 5 5600X ($299, with a Wraith Stealth air cooler included)....

If there is one thing that can make 'Taco Tuesday' even better it's a delicious chip. Or in this case, a chip leak, for what is purported to be an upcoming Zen 3 processor from AMD, which has found its way into the Ashes of the Singularity benchmarking database, where it shows a strong IPC (instructions per clock) gain, and perhaps a new "parallel single threading" capability. There is a bit to chew on here, so let's start with the CPU model. What is shown in the database entries is purportedly an unreleased (and unannounced) Ryzen 7 5800X processor. This is presumed to be from AMD's upcoming Zen 3 stack (Vermeer on the desktop), with 8 cores and 16 threads, at unidentified clockspeeds. Zen 3... Read more...
In exactly three weeks, AMD will unveil its Zen 3 lineup during a scheduled press event (October 8), followed by announcing its Radeon RX 6000 series toward the end of next month (October 28). We have questions, and AMD presumably has answers. One of them is what specific processors are on tap, and according to a new leak, AMD will be unveiling a Ryzen 5000 series for the desktop, not Ryzen 4000. This needs to happen, as far as I am concerned. I am fully aware that skipping ahead to Ryzen 5000 might irk some people, but I would argue it is needed, to make things less confusing among AMD's different product lines. Specifically, the Ryzen 4000 series already exists in mobile APU form, but the underlying... Read more...
