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...

When it comes to AMD's Radeon RX Vega family of graphics cards, we haven't seen much [yet] as far as custom boards go. Sure, we've seen a custom board from ASUS and Gigabyte's Radeon RX Vega 64 GAMING OC, but that's about it. Thankfully, the folks over at XFX are teasing an upcoming Radeon RX Vega card, and it's quite the looker. Our first look at the card comes thanks to Mark Regimbal, community manager over at XFX, who posted images to reddit.  The first thing that caught our attention is most definitely the twin red fans, which are ensconced in a carbon fiber-esque shroud. It's a dramatic... Read more...
AMD has had a banner year thanks to the launch of the many incarnations of its Zen processor architecture (Ryzen, Ryzen Threadripper, EPYC), as well as its Vega graphics cards (Radeon RX Vega 56, Radeon RX Vega 64). Now, however, the company is set to launch the combination of those standout architectures in a single die linked together with its Infinity Fabric. The result is what's internally known at AMD as Raven Ridge, and now will simply be referred to as Ryzen Mobile. There are two initial chips in the processor family that AMD is announcing today: the Ryzen 5 2500U and the Ryzen 7 2700U.... Read more...
AMD thrust itself back into the conversation at the both the high-end processor and graphics markets with its Ryzen and Vega architectures, respectively, and also laid the groundwork for remaining competitive as it builds upon each one. To that end, AMD announced at the GlobalFoundries Technology Conference that it will be transitioning its "graphics and clients products" from its current 14-nanometer LPP FinFET process to 12nm LP technology in 2018. Based on what we know up to this point, our guess is that the move to 12nm on the CPU side will be a die shrink of Ryzen as opposed to new processors... Read more...
AMD fans have had a lot to be happy about in the last few months as the chipmaker is finally taking it to Intel in performance CPUs and executing better in the GPU business to boot. It turns out that AMD's Radeon GPUs are beasts when it comes to cryptocurrency mining, leading to shortages and difficulty for gamers to find Radeon RX Vega cards. Specifically, the AMD Radeon RX Vega 64 is particularly adept in Ethereum mining. However, if you are one of the AMD fans looking down the road to what's next, especially for gamers, new information on AMD Vega 11 GPUs has surfaced. DigiTimes reports that... Read more...
AMD’s Radeon RX Vega family of graphics is becoming known not only for its gaming performance, but also for how incredibly hard it is for enthusiasts to get their hands on them. The Radeon RX Vega 64 is supposed to have an MSRP of $499, but retailers have been tacking $100 to $200 on top of that price when they do have them in stock. Similar shenanigans have taken place with the Radeon RX Vega 56. We’re now learning that AMD’s early run of Vega 64 boards is actually costing the company money… big money in fact. A report hailing from Fudzilla says that AMD is losing roughly $100 on every Vega 64... Read more...
AMD’s highly anticipated Radeon RX Vega family of graphics cards launched roughly two weeks ago (read the HotHardware review here), and it’s been crapshoot since that time to actually find the graphics cards in stock. Even for those that have been able to find one in stock, pricing has been through the roof (Amazon is currently lists the air-cooled XFX Radeon RX Vega 64 at over $700). A new report is suggesting that customers won’t find any relief until October at the earliest due to yield issues. According to DigiTimes, there have been difficulties surrounding how the high bandwidth memory (HBM2),... Read more...

Ethereum (ETH) has risen to become hugely popular in the cryptocurrency world over a relatively short period of time. After first appearing on the radar screens of miners earlier this year, with valuations surpassing the $400 mark in June, ETH pricing is now hovering around $300. Mining enthusiasts have built their own dedicated machines for mining Ether, with many choosing mid-range NVIDIA and AMD hardware to get the most bang for the buck and performance-per-watt. As we mentioned in our Ethereum Mining Optimization Guide, we found that the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 offers a relatively high hash... Read more...
Today is the day AMD's Radeon Technologies Group has been working towards for a long time. The official launch of the Radeon RX Vega is here, and it's now time for AMD RTG's moment in the spotlight. Advanced Micro Devices (NASDAQ:AMD) has been on a tear as of late; the desktop and server processor group executed successful launches of its Ryzen desktop processor, EPYC server platform, and finally the big bang last week with its Ryzen Threadripper enthusiast 12- and 16-core processors, which were met with high praise. Ryzen, EPYC and Threadripper are tough acts to follow, just ask Intel. So too... Read more...
