We've said before that AMD really hit its stride with Zen 3.

It will be about a month before AMD's Ryzen 7 5800X3D with its fat stack of 3D V-cache sashays onto retail shelves, but the benchmarks are already starting to trickle in. As such, we have a chance to make some early and unofficial comparisons with the Ryzen 7 5800X, essentially the same chip but without the added... Read more...
Following up on its launch of the Ryzen 7 5800X3D in the consumer sector, AMD today unveiled its 3rd Gen EPYC "Milan-X" processors for the data center with similar stacked 3D V-cache enhancements and chip packaging technology.

It looks like AMD is having a blowout sale of sorts on its Ryzen 5000 series processors, through its retail partners. Not that Zen 3 is being discontinued or anything (we still have several months before Zen 4 arrives). However, there are some deep discounts at play right now, the most enticing of which applies to its... Read more...
If AMD is in the rear view mirror (arguable), that's only because it keeps making pit stops to collect more money from skyrocketing Zen 3 and RDNA 2 sales. So says the company's latest earnings report. AMD capped off a record year with $4.8 billion in revenue during the fourth quarter, which pushed its full-year... Read more...
The performance of the just-released Radeon RX 6500 XT may not quite be what people were hoping for from a brand-new graphics card in 2022. Technically speaking, solid 1080p gaming performance in under 100 watts really isn't all that bad, but the historically-low prices of Polaris-based products like the Radeon RX 470... Read more...
At long last, we have some finalized specifications to share regarding Aya Neo's 'Next' handheld gaming PC.

Last week, owners of one of Gigabyte's motherboards based on AMD's A320 chipset had a limited CPU upgrade path, if they didn't want to overhaul their platform. And now? Gigabyte is dishing up beta BIOS updates that enable support for both Zen 2 (Ryzen 4000) and the latest Zen 3 (Ryzen 5000) processor from AMD. This... Read more...
AMD is quickly approaching five years of its Zen architecture being out on the market, with the original set of Ryzen processors having launched to retail in February 2017.
