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...
In case you haven’t been keeping up, late last month AMD officially announced the consumer version of its Vega-based graphics cards to much fanfare. With prices starting at $399 for the Radeon RX Vega 56, $499 for Radeon Vega RX 64 Air Cooled and topping out at $699 for the Radeon RX Vega 64 Liquid Cooled, AMD is playing squarely in territory currently occupied by NVIDIA’s higher-end GeForce GTX 10 graphics cards. As it turns out, late this week AMD finally had a shipment delivered to us that contained a graphics card presentation unlike any other we've seen to date. Luckily for us, we’ve... Read more...
AMD has been slow playing the launch of its next generation processors and graphics cards. The marketing strategy has created a ton of hype surrounding Ryzen, Threadripper, and Vega, and just when it seemed like there was nothing else to tease, AMD decided to pass around a Radeon RX Vega Nano graphics card for small form factor systems. One of the best images of the pint-sized graphics card shows AMD's Chris Hook, a senior director of global marketing PR for the company, excitedly holding the card up. He displayed the card just long enough for a picture to be taken before disappearing behind the... Read more...
Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past twelve hours, then you know that AMD officially unveiled its Radeon RX Vega architecture. With a starting price of $399 (Radeon RX Vega 54), AMD is looking to bring some incredibly potent graphics muscle to compete with the GeForce GTX 10 Series. Up until this point, AMD has given us just a small taste of what to expect when it comes to performance of Radeon RX Vega 64. AMD posted a few slides late last night that shows that when it comes to minimum and maximum framerates running at 3440x1440 and 3840x2160, the Radeon RX Vega 64 offers generally... Read more...
AMD has officially lifted the veil on its new Radeon RX consumer graphics line-up, featuring the company's next-generation Vega GPU architecture.
