Items tagged with x570

We are exactly one week away from the start of Computex 2019, and barring a surprise change of plans, AMD will announce its new generation Ryzen 3000 series of desktop processors based on its Zen 2 CPU architecture. AMD is also expected to unveil its X570 chipset. Ahead of the event, a block diagram has emerged showing the PCie makeup of the upcoming chipset. To be clear, existing owners of X470, B450, X370, and B350 motherboards will in most cases just need a BIOS update to support the upcoming crop of processors—AMD is retaining support for its AM4 socket. That may or may not be the case for budget-oriented A320 and A300 motherboards (whenever we inquire about that, motherboard makers... Read more...
With AMD Ryzen 3000 desktop processors right around the corner, we've seen a number of leaks regarding the complementing X570 motherboards that will underpin them. The latest include two entries from a favorite company for enthusiasts: MSI. Although MSI hasn't official announced its AMD X570 motherboard lineup, two have leaked today. The first is the X570 Gaming Pro Carbon, which includes 12-phase VRM. If you look adjacent to the AM4 socket, you'll also see that the motherboard support MSI's Core Boost and DDR4 Boost technology to automatically optimize the clock speeds of both your processor and memory. Other items of note include four DDR4 memory slots to accommodate up... Read more...
AMD's 7nm Zen 2 processors are fast approaching, with a launch expected later this month at Computex 2019 in Taipei, Taiwan. With this in mind, motherboards supporting the new consumer-centric Ryzen 3000 processors are starting to leak to the web. Just a few days ago, we saw the Biostar X570 Racing GT8 make an appearance, and today we're staring at the Colorful CVN X570 Gaming Pro. The motherboard has an aeronautical theme (as witnessed by what appears to be Lockheed F-22 Raptors emblazoned on the PCB) and active PCH cooling. There are RGB lighting effects around the PCH heatsink/fan and in front of the four DIMM slots. Speaking of memory, the motherboard supports... Read more...
Motherboard makers can hardly contain their excitement over the pending launch of AMD's next-generation Ryzen 3000 series of desktop processors, which will be accompanied by a new X570 chipset. Biostar in particular is chomping at the bit (or champing, if you prefer). A publicly available PDF document on the company's website spills the beans on one of the company's upcoming X570 motherboards, the Racing X570 GT8. Separately, Biostar is sending emails to members of the press inviting them to stop by its booth at Computex next month to check out is latest product offerings. According to the email, Biostar plans to unveil "new flagship 4th gen Racing series motherboards as well as 5G gaming solutions,... Read more...
All of those Encyclopedia Brown books I read as a youngster are now paying off. How is that? Well, MSI posted a partially cryptic image on Twitter that, if you don your detective cap like I have done, reveals itself to be a teaser of one of the company's unreleased X570 motherboards for AMD's upcoming Ryzen 3000 series processors. Let's look at the evidence, shall we? Before we get to the image, here's what we know: AMD is prepping a new round of Ryzen processors based on its third-generation Zen architecture, called Zen 2 (the previous two generations include current Zen+ and last generation Zen). AMD plans to at least talk about Zen 2 (and Navi, on the GPU side) during Computex next month,... Read more...
It's getting close to that time folks; AMD is just months away from launching its new Zen 2-based CPUs which are built on the 7nm process node. The first of these chips that will make their way to the market will be from the Ryzen 3000 family of consumer desktop processors. Up until this point, it's been confirmed that Ryzen 3000 processors would be available with up to 8 cores, and AMD CEO Lisa Su hinted that we'd see Ryzen processors with a greater number of cores available. We’ve seen some early engineering samples kicking around with 12 cores, and now we're getting additional evidence that 16-core Ryzen 3000 processors will be available. Zen2 ES 16 Core... Read more...
Computex 2019 is roughly a month away, which means that more details are starting to leak out about AMD’s next-generation Ryzen 3000 desktop processors. We already know for certain that the processors are built on AMD’s new 7-nanometer Zen 2 microarchitecture and will provide a real threat to Intel’s 14nm++ Core processors.  Although reports have indicated that Ryzen 3000 processors will be available with up to 12 physical cores, rough performance guidelines for some early quad-core samples are starting to file in. For starters, it’s being stated that instructions per clock (IPC) has been increased by 15 percent versus Ryzen 2000 processors (Zen+).... Read more...
Biostar is getting itself prepared for an onslaught of AMD Zen 2-based Ryzen processors, which are expected to be announced at Computex 2019 next month. In an official press release that was posted today, Biostar confirmed its fourth-generation RACING series motherboards with are going to underpin the "new AMD Ryzen platform." Biostar's motherboards would no doubt be based on AMD's new X570 chipset, which supports all existing (and future) AM4 processors. X570 motherboards will natively support all the features of Ryzen 3000 processors and will also bring support for PCI Express Gen 4. It should be noted that the new Ryzen 3000 processors will still be supported on older motherboards (i.e.... Read more...
It will not be too terribly long before AMD launches its next-generation Ryzen 3000 series, a new line of processors based on its Zen 2 architecture. In the meantime, there are plenty of leaks and rumors to fill the gap. Falling into the former category, what appears to be an engineering sample of a quad-core Ryzen 3000 series CPU has found its way onto SiSoftware Sandra's database. Sandra is a popular diagnostic, analysis, and benchmarking utility that can provide oodles of information about your setup. We use it in some of our reviews to test memory bandwidth and processor performance. Incidentally, it's also a popular landing place for unreleased products to make a cameo, as AMD's Ryzen 3000...

AMD is expected to launch its Ryzen 3000 desktop processor family this summer. Otherwise known as Matisse, the upcoming chips are based on AMD's 7-nanometer Zen 2 architecture, which yields faster clockspeeds and an improved IPC for better overall performance. The new chips will also be accompanied by a new X570 chipset, and we are starting to see motherboard models based on that chipset leak out. If you plan on building a PC around a Ryzen 3000 series processor, an X570 motherboard makes the most sense—the upcoming chipset is said to offer PCI Express Gen 4 support and will likely include other goodies not found on the current batch of X470 motherboards. That said, Ryzen 3000 processors... Read more...
The enthusiast community is eagerly awaiting the arrival of AMD's third-generation Ryzen 3000 series processors. These Ryzen 3000 processors are based on 7-nanometer Zen 2 architecture, which is codenamed Matisse, and will take the fight directly to Intel’s popular Core processor family. AMD gave us our first glimpse at an 8-core, 16-thread Ryzen 3000 processor at this year's Consumer Electronics Shows, where it put up performance comparable to Intel's mighty Core i9-9900K. Now, a new report from RedGamingTech suggests that these new mainstream processors will come to market in July. More specifically, the publication says that its sources have indicated a launch...

Back at the Consumer Electronics Show earlier this month, AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su held up an early sample of a Ryzen 3000 series processor based on AMD's Zen 2 (Matisse) CPU architecture. It will still be several months until Zen 2 chips start shipping to consumers, though in the meantime, motherboard makers are getting ready with next-gen boards based on AMD's upcoming X570 chipset. We suspect there will be a ton of motherboard leaks in the upcoming weeks and months, especially as AMD's Ryzen 3000 series draws closer to release. In fact, it has already started to happen. The Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) website lists a bunch of unreleased ASRock motherboards based on X570. They include: ASRock... Read more...
The dust has barely had time to settle on AMD's X470 chipset, which launched alongside its second-generation Ryzen processors. Looking ahead, however, X570 is now right around the corner, or so the latest leak says. One thing that's interesting about the upcoming chipset is that it supposedly will offer PCI Express Gen 4 support. If the X570 does indeed end up supporting PCIe 4.0, as the latest leak indicates, it will be AMD's first chipset to do so, and the first consumer platform in general. It also stands to reason that AMD's upcoming Zen 2 processors (Ryzen 3000 series) will support PCIe 4.0 too. Whether the leaked information is accurate or not, it's impossible to say (AMD doesn't talk about... Read more...
