Here is a juicy nugget straight out of the rumor mill as the weekend commences—according to notable leaker and Twitter user ExecutabieFix, AMD's eventual Ryzen 6000 mobile series processors will feature onboard graphics based on the company's second generation Radeon DNA (RDNA 2) architecture, with up to 12 compute units. We presume the mobile series will be dubbed Ryzen 6000G. Otherwise known as Rembrandt, these mobile chips are essentially APUs, pairing CPU cores based on AMD's rumored Zen 3+ (Warhol) architecture with RDNA 2 GPU cores. Zen 3+ does not exist on any of AMD's official roadmaps released to the public, but has been the subject of a growing number of leaks and rumors dating... Read more...
AMD last month announced its Ryzen 5000G family of Cezanne Zen 3 desktop processors, and yesterday we got an early glimpse at the performance potential for the flagship Ryzen 7 5700G. Today, we're getting a look at what the next rung down on the ladder, the Ryzen 5 5600G, will offer. Before we get into the nitty-gritty, we should first mention that the Ryzen 5 5600G is a 6-core/12-thread processor with a base clock of 3.9GHz and a boost clock of 4.4GHz. Built on TSMC's 7nm FinFET process node, the Ryzen 5 5600G features 3MB of L2 cache, 16MB of L3 cache, and a 65-watt TDP. Given that this is a Zen 3 APU, the processor features a 7-core Radeon Vega GPU. Now for the benchmarks. In yesterday's outing... Read more...
Back in mid-April, AMD officially launched its Zen 3-based Ryzen 5000G Series of desktop processors. Unlike Zen 3 "Vermeer" desktop processors a la the Ryzen 9 5950X, these new "Cezanne" processors feature integrated graphics courtesy of a Radeon Vega GPU (with up to 8 GPU cores). AMD announced the Ryzen 7 5700G as its flagship Cezanne processor, and now we're getting a small glimpse at the kind of performance it will offer when it ships in OEM systems. Famed hardware leaker @TUM_APISAK found entries for the Ryzen 7 5700G in UserBenchmark and CPU-Z databases. For the UserBenchmark score, the Ryzen 7 5700G was installed in a Hewlett-Packard Pavilion Desktop (TP01-2xxx), scoring 98.5 percent for... Read more...
AMD's 300-series chipsets, including the B350 and X370 among others, had an incredible run of CPU support in their four years on this earth. While it was a little late to the party, most X370 and B350 motherboards received official support for AMD's Zen 2 Ryzen 3000 family of processors in 2019. Earlier this year, it seemed that even the Zen 3-based Ryzen 5000 family would run on 300-series motherboards. Unfortunately, the gravy train for the AMD's first Socket AM4 chipset may have just run dry. It all started with a Reddit thread in the /r/ASRock subforum about 10 days ago. The now-ancient X370 Taichi and X370 Professional Gaming had BIOS updates listed with version 6.62. Currently, the only... Read more...
It hardly matters that it is nigh impossible to find a Ryzen 9 5900X both in stock and priced at (or even near) its MSRP of $549, the chip is still selling like hotcakes regardless. In fact, it is the second-best selling CPU on Amazon, behind only the previous generation (Zen 2) Ryzen 7 3700X. Should Intel be concerned about this? Let's unpack the situation. The Ryzen 9 5900X is based on AMD's latest generation Zen 3 architecture. It is a 12-core/24-thread processor with a 3.7GHz base clock, 4.8GHz max boost clock, and 64MB of L3 cache, all wrapped in a 105W TDP. The suggested e-tailer pricing (SEP) is $549, but like AMD's flagship Ryzen 9 5950X, it has been difficult to find for anywhere near... Read more...
Have you ever woken up and just casually decided to break a world record that day, and then achieved that goal? Yeah, neither have we. It did occur to AMD, however, on the heels of launching its 3rd Gen EPYC processors for servers. Based on the company's Zen 3 architecture, its EPYC "Milan" series is some serious big iron, and AMD decided to demonstrate this by setting a Cinebench R23 world record. There would be no helium, liquid nitrogen, or even liquid cooling in pursuit of the record, just a "pure old boring air cooling solution." For the record attempt, AMD rounded up a pair of EPYC 7763 processors based on Zen 3, which sit at the top of its server stack. Each chip wields 64 cores and 128... Read more...
Following what had felt like a constant barrage of leaks and rumors pointing to AMD pairing its Zen 3 CPU architecture with Radeon graphics for a new line of APUs, AMD today finally and formally introduced such a lineup, as part of its Ryzen 5000G series. There are six new SKUs in all, starting with a 4-core/8-thread model and scaling up to a couple of 8-core/16-thread variants. These are desktop APUs that will find homes in OEM desktop systems first, before being made available to do-it-yourself (DIY) system builders sometime later this year. AMD did not provide an exact date for when the Ryzen 5000G series will be offered in standalone form, but did say in no uncertain terms that they will... Read more...
Corsair has gotten around to updating its lineup of compact gaming PCs with the latest generation CPU hardware from AMD (Ryzen 5000 series based on Zen 3) and Intel (11th Gen Core chips based on Rocket Lake-S). Just as enticing, both the updated Corsair One a200 and One i200 come equipped with NVIDIA's burly GeForce RTX 3080 graphics card. As we noted in our GeForce RTX 3080 review, the card is nothing short of impressive, delivering extreme performance across the board. It is an outstanding GPU for gaming at 4K and turning on real-time ray tracing effects. It's nice to see Corsair turning to one of NVIDIA's finest (second only to the GeForce RTX 3090) for its refreshed compact desktops. While... Read more...
HP seems to have tipped some official details on unreleased CPU hardware from AMD, and namely its upcoming lineup of Ryzen Pro 5000 series processors. A knowledge base article on the OEM's website lists three unannounced processors, including the Ryzen 7 Pro 5750G, Ryzen 5 Pro 5650G, and Ryzen 3 Pro 5350G. This is not the first time HP has been the source of leaked information. It's not even the first time this month. Back on April 1st, we wrote about a series of HP listings that identified several Ryzen 5000G series APUs, including the Ryzen 7 5000G, Ryzen 5 5600G, and Ryzen 3 5300G, all three of which are destined for various upcoming desktops. So are the newly leaked Pro series models, except... Read more...
A rumor that refuses to go away is that AMD will be refreshing its current-generation Zen 3 processor lineup with a new Zen 3+ stack. Apparently this will happen across the board, and not just on the desktop. Serving as further evidence of such is a newly leaked roadmap that points to an upcoming lineup of laptop APUs based on Zen 3+, with support for new features. Nothing has been confirmed, mind you, but if the leaked roadmap ends up being accurate, AMD will shift to a 6-nanometer manufacturing process for its upcoming Zen 3+ chips. And as it relates specifically to its laptop family, Rembrandt-H and Rembrandt-U parts will feature integrated graphics based on RDNA 2, and support for DDR5 memoryt.... Read more...
A new Ryzen 5000 processor is waiting in the wings for customers, and we're not talking about the incoming Zen 3-based Cezanne APU family. Instead, AMD is ready to release the Ryzen 9 5900, the "non-X" counterpart to the potent Ryzen 9 5900X. Like the Ryzen 9 5900X, the new Ryzen 9 5900 is a 12-core/24-thread processor with all the architectural benefits of Zen 3 (including native PCIe 4.0 support and increased IPC built on the 7nm process node) but comes with a lower 65-watt TDP versus 105 watts. The lower thermal ceiling means that Ryzen 9 5900 will fall behind its overachieving sibling in overall performance.

It is entirely possible that Gigabyte has tipped a new AMD motherboard chipset for its upcoming Zen 3 refresh (Zen 3+), otherwise known by the codename Warhol, which is expected to arrive by the end of the year. While nothing is confirmed, rumor has it AMD is planning to launch a stack of Zen+ CPUs to put itself in a better position to compete with Intel's Alder Lake-S processors. If and when that day arrives, AMD might also launch a new X570S chipset. What additional features it might bring to the table remains to be seen, but there is at least some evidence to suggest a new chipset could be in the works. Have a look...

AMD has not yet thrust its Zen 3 architecture into every possible CPU segment, though it has hit the main ones (consumer desktops and laptops, and the lucrative server market). One of the stones that still needs to be turned over is the high-end desktop (HEDT) category. Good news, though—rumor has it a Ryzen Threadripper 5000 series is destined for an August launch. As a point of reference, AMD introduced its third-generation Ryzen Threadripper 3000 series based on Zen 2 in November of 2019. Zen 3, meanwhile, launched just four months ago with the introduction of AMD's Ryzen 5000 series desktop CPUs. So an August launch for a new round of Ryzen Threadripper processors is certainly plausible.... Read more...
Intel was raked over the coals three years ago when Spectre and Meltdown vulnerabilities were first discovered that could affect its consumer and enterprise processors. The company addressed the side-channel exploits with patches and subsequent hardware revisions, but AMD is now coming under the microscope for a side-channel attack that could affect processors based on its Zen 3 architecture. The attack is similar in scope to Spectre and involves a feature introduced with Zen 3 called Predictive Store Forwarding (PSF). PSF, in effect, guesses the result of a load and uses speculative execution with subsequent commands.  "In typical code, PSF provides a performance benefit by speculating... Read more...
HP is readying numerous desktop models built around AMD's not-yet-released (or even announced) Ryzen 5000G series APUs. The upcoming chips will pair CPU cores based on AMD's latest generation Zen 3 architecture with Radeon graphics, which is an increasingly intriguing proposition, given the current shortage of graphics cards. The Ryzen 5000G series also marks the latest expansion of Zen 3 into yet another product segment, with AMD having already injected its desktop, laptop, and server CPUs with its newest architecture. However, the refreshed APU line does not officially exist at this precise moment. It will at some point, though, and lest there be any doubt, HP is busy updating some of its product... Read more...
The neat thing about benchmarking databases is not just the wealth of comparison data—they also serve as unofficial tipsters of upcoming products. And so it goes at UserBenchmark. A recent listing points to an HP EliteDesk 805 G8 mini desktop PC that has not yet been released, with an AMD Ryzen 7 Pro 5750G APU inside. AMD's Ryzen 7 Pro 5750G does not officially exist yet. Just last week, AMD formally introduced its mobile Ryzen Pro 5000 series processors for business-class laptops, but the lineup so far consists of just three SKUs: Ryzen 7 Pro 5850U, Ryzen 5 Pro 5650U, and Ryzen 3 Pro 5450U. AMD has not yet ported Zen 3 over to its desktop APU lineup. That day is presumably fast approaching,... Read more...
One of the final destinations for AMD's mighty Zen 3 architecture is in the desktop APU space. Otherwise known as Cezanne, these desktop CPUs based on Zen 3 with Radeon graphics underneath the same hood are coming (presumably soon). While we wait, the upcoming Ryzen 7 5700G has seemingly made a benchmark cameo, after having been overclocked to 4.8GHz. This is not the first sighting of a Ryzen 7 5700G in the wild. The unreleased and unannounced chip made its benchmark debut in January, achieving a single-core score of 1,304 and a multi-core score of 8,717 in Geekbench 5, operating at stock clocks (3.8GHz base, 4.4GHz max boost). Then a month later, a Ryzen 7 5700G engineering sample popped up... Read more...
AMD just launched its next-generation EPYC server processors, codenamed Milan, based on the company’s leading Zen 3 microarchitecture. The new EPYC 7003 series is an important milestone for AMD. The company has made significant in-roads in servers and data centers in recent years, and the arrival of the EPYC 7003 series brings with it significantly improved IPC and per-core performance, better multi-core scaling, and more flexible memory configuration options (among other new features), in a package that’s socket compatible with previous-gen offerings – existing EPYC platforms will support the EPYC 7003 series with a simple BIOS update. The biggest change with the EPYC 7003... Read more...
AMD today will formally extend its Zen 3 family over to its server line, with the launch of its EPYC 7003 "Milan" CPUs. The event will be livestreamed, allowing you to can tune in to watch it unfold. So brew yourself a cup of coffee (or grab your beverage of choice), sit back, and watch the unveiling live with us here at HotHardware. The event starts at 11:00 am Eastern (8:00 am Pacific). Our best guess is it will last anywhere from around 30 minutes to an hour. Officially, the only real details AMD has provided is that its 3rd generation EPYC processors will indeed sport Zen 3 underneath the hood, and are "designed to elevate data center performance and bring transformational value to businesses."...

Over the weekend, we started to turn the corner concerning Zen 3 processor availability. Ever since AMD's Ryzen 5000 desktop processor family launched late last year, they've been in short supply. Early pricing was through the roof, with chips selling for well over MSRP. The Ryzen 7 5800X was the first Zen 3 processor to become widely available at its MSRP, and now it's the Ryzen 5 5600X's turn. The Ryzen 5 5600X has an MSRP of $299 but routinely sells for between $350 and $400 due to supply issues. But right now, you can head right on over to Walmart.com and purchase the Ryzen 5 5600X for $299.99 with no strings attached.  Even Amazon, which has struggled to keep the Ryzen 5600X in...

AMD is finally ready to take the next step in the rollout of its Zen 3 family of processors following the launch of Ryzen 5000 desktop and laptop families. Today, AMD announced that its third-generation EPYC processors would be officially announced on March 15th at 11 am ET, one week from today. On hand at the virtual press conference will be AMD President and CEO Dr. Lisa Su and Mark Papermaster, who serves as Executive VP of Technology and Engineering. Dan McNamara, SVP and GM of the Server Business Unit, and Forrest Norrod, VP and GM for the Datacenter and Embedded Solutions Business Group, will also be there during the presentation to talk about EPYC. Beyond those details,... 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...
