Earlier this year, AMD expanded its processor family with new second-generation Ryzen processors based on 12nm Pinnacle Ridge architecture. AMD first started off with consumer-level Ryzen 2000 series processors, and then moved on to the new Ryzen Threadripper 2000 series processors (topping out with the Ryzen Threadripper 2990WX featuring 32 cores and 64 threads). It's now time for AMD's second-generation Ryzen PRO processors, which compete directly with Intel's vPro lineup. Like before, the Ryzen PRO processors put an emphasis on integrated security and encryption features... Read more...
NVIDIA may have been in the news for the past week for its GeForce RTX family of gaming graphics cards, but we haven't forgotten about AMD. The company today announced a new high-end graphics solution destined for high-density data center applications. The Radeon Pro V340 is based on AMD's current-generation Vega architecture and actually features dual GPUs on a dual-slot card with 32GB of ECC HBM2. However, don’t get too excited gamers – this is strictly an enterprise-class solution. AMD says that the Radeon Pro V340 is capable of supporting up to 32 1GB virtual machines... Read more...
Content creators who might not have pockets deep enough to invest in the fastest professional graphics cards on the planet now have a new, relatively affordable alternative to get the job done. AMD unveiled its newest Vega card, the Radeon Pro WX 8200, and it is available to pre-order right now for less than a grand ($999.00, to be exact). The new workstation card is based on AMD's Vega 10 GPU architecture built on a 14-nanometer FinFET manufacturing process. It also features a dedicated AMD Secure Processor designed to carve out a virtual "secure world" in the GPU. This is where tasks dealing... Read more...
AMD's desktop class Ryzen 2000 series and upcoming Ryzen Threadripper WX series processors aren't the only Zen-flavored chips on the company's docket. The company announced today that it has a new semi-custom SoC that's available to customers that will allow them to design powerful gaming systems targeted for their respective markets. More specifically, these SoCs will initially go into gaming PCs and dedicated gaming consoles that will be released by Chinese firm Zhongshan Subor. The specs are relatively beefy, as it combines the brawn of Ryzen with the graphics prowess of... Read more...
AMD has had some great momentum since it unleashed its first Zen-based processors to market early last year. A little while later, we saw EPYC hit the enterprise market and Threadripper hit soon thereafter, to cater to high-end enthusiasts and workstation users. Recently, the company followed-up its initial Ryzen release with second-gen parts, and Threadripper 2 is also en route and due in a couple of months (which includes a beastly, 32-core part). Based on what we're seeing right now, it doesn't appear this momentum is going to slow down anytime soon. We've already known for a... Read more...
There are some interesting things happening in the professional graphics hardware market. Just a few days ago, there was a slide making the rounds that depicted a Radeon Pro V340 graphics card with 32GB of HBM2 memory, and it was speculated that it has a pair of 14-nanometer Vega 10 GPUs underneath the hood. Interesting stuff, but even neater is a set of leaked benchmarks for a Radeon Pro Vega 20 card, which as the name implies sports a Vega 20 GPU built in a 7nm FinFET manufacturing process. To be clear, this is a different beast than AMD's Radeon Instinct accelerators. Those cards are intended... Read more...
If you're the current owner of a Raven Ridge-based APU, then you've no doubt gotten used to a somewhat languid pace of new driver releases. While AMD's standalone Radeon add-in graphics cards frequently receive new driver updates, the company's APUs haven’t been so lucky. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that this policy will get much better, as it has been confirmed that AMD APUs (a la Raven Ridge) will only be updated every three months (quarterly). A forum member over at Overclockers UK wondered aloud, "How come there is no raven ridge support with the last two drivers?... Read more...
After the splash that AMD made with Ryzen and Ryzen Threadripper in 2017, it should come as no surprise that AMD would follow-up with second generation variants. We've already seen the mainstream side of things with the Ryzen 2000 Series processors, and now at an event at Computex 2018, AMD has just announced its second-generation Ryzen Threadripper family. Like the Ryzen 2000 series, second-generation Ryzen Threadripper processors are based on 12nm Zen+ architecture. That means that the new High-End Desktop (HEDT) processors offer lower latencies, higher clock speeds, and Precision... Read more...
AMD is brewing something up for Computex that enthusiasts will want to pay attention to. The chipmaker has sent out emails with a bit of detail about the press conference it will have at the show. That conference will take place on June 6th in Taipei and AMD wants folks to pay attention to the conference, despite not really saying what it will be about. What we do know from the email is that AMD is promising hardware demos that have never been seen and is promising to showcase its innovation and leadership. That sounds a lot like new hardware and rumors point to new gear in the Radeon Vega... Read more...
The Intel NUC8i7HVK, codenamed Hades Canyon, is an interesting product for a number of reasons. First, because it’s the most powerful NUC released to date and packs more I/O and connectivity than any of Intel’s previous mini-machines. It also has user-configurable lighting and activity LEDs and an aggressive design-language that looks great, in our opinion. Perhaps the most interesting thing about the Intel NUC8i7HVK, however, is that it’s powered by an Intel 8th Generation Core processor with integrated Radeon RX Vega M graphics. More specifically, the NUC8i7HVK is packing a... Read more...
We usually have to be tight-lipped about what we’re working on around here due to non-disclosure agreements and embargos that are in-place. With the impending launch of its Raven Ridge-based Ryzen processors with integrated Radeon Vega graphics, however, AMD allowed us to show off some of the hardware pre-launch. Take a look... We are testing the AMD Raven Ridge Ryzen 3 2200G and Ryzen 5 2400G processors as we “speak”. We will have our full review on-line next week, complete with an array of benchmarks, overclocking, and power numbers. In the meantime, if you’d like a quick... Read more...
AMD is getting out in front of the impending influx of CES-related announcements and unveiling a number of upcoming chip products for the new year. After ramping 10 new product lines in 2017 -- if you consider its entire breadth of CPUs, GPUs, and semi-custom APUs -- AMD is readying more new and/or updated products for 2018, including next-generation Ryzen and Threadripper desktop processors covering every market segment from mobile to HEDT, and an array of Vega-based graphics products that target new markets and form factors. Ryzen Mobile Goes Pro Let’s start with the mobile news. We... Read more...
It's quite a big deal that Intel and AMD have partnered to build a new processor package incorporating an 8th Generation Core H-series CPU with a Radeon Vega GPU, plans of which Intel announced two months ago. We expect quite a bit of fanfare and ballyhooing when the first multi-chip module (MCM) package arrives, though in the meantime, an overclocking page at Intel's India portal has tipped what that will likely be—a Core i7-8809G. The new chip shows up on a page promoting overclocking Intel's unlocked processors. When you scroll down, there is a section that lists several unlocked CPUs... Read more...
This morning we have some historic and momentous news for you in the computing world and it is sure to rock long-standing factions that have stood behind Intel and AMD processors to the very "Core." Intel just announced today that it has collaborated with AMD to deliver 8th generation Core processors that have on-board AMD Radeon Vega graphics integrated into a single, multi-chip module package (MCM). Yes, you read that correctly. The new processor package incorporates an 8th Generation Core H-Series CPU, AMD's Radeon Vega GPU and HMB2 memory all in a single chip package. Intel says that it...
