The newest version of ClockTuner for Ryzen (CTR) is now available to anyone and everyone, after the utility's developer opened up access to Patreon subscribers a little over a month ago. It brings with it a bunch of changes and upgrades, including a refreshed GUI, though it is the support for AMD's latest generation... Read more...
Overclocking a CPU used to be a pretty simple process: change a bus speed or a multiplier, set an appropriate voltage, and voila: your Celeron 300A was running at 450 MHz, or your 600 MHz Duron was knocking on the 1 GHz barrier. These days with the advent of dynamic boost speeds and optimized frequency and voltage curves, processors intelligently... Read more...
During her CES2021 keynote address, AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su, along with a handful of partners, revealed the AMD Ryzen 5000 series mobile processors. At that event, the overall line-up and a few details were disclosed, and over the course of CES many design wins were announced by multiple OEMs as well. Shortly thereafter though, AMD hosted a deep-dive... Read more...
This is shaping up to be an exiting year in PC hardware (pending sufficient inventory levels). At CES 2021 last week, AMD formally introduced its Ryzen 5000 series of mobile processors, most of which are based on Zen 3 (a few are Zen 2 parts). Likewise, AMD's hardware partners announced upcoming laptops based on its... Read more...
AMD offered up a preview of its upcoming third-generation EPYC "Milan" server processors, based on its 7-nanometer Zen 3 architecture. According to AMD, its next round of EPYC chips will "reset the bar for data computing" with class leading performance (per core and throughput). On the heels of a lofty claim, several... Read more...
AMD finally had some things to say about its upcoming EPYC "Milan" processors based on Zen 3. During the company's keynote at CES, a slide shown behind CEO Dr. Lisa Su touted the company's third-gen EPYC processors as being the world's highest-performance x86 server CPUs, in terms of per-core and throughput. More than... Read more...
AMD CEO Dr. Lisa kicked off the company’s highly-anticipated CES 2021 keynote with some discussion about the importance of high-performance computing and the gaming industry in general. She talked about the latest AMD-powered game consoles and the recent launch of the Radeon RX 6000 series, otherwise known as “Big... Read more...
It is widely expected that AMD will announce some new chips at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), including a line of mobile CPUs based on Zen 3. Might we also see a fresh batch of Ryzen processors with Radeon graphics, too? Time will tell. Otherwise known as an APU, a recent benchmark leak highlighted one of the... Read more...
AMD's Ryzen 5000 CPUs are still fairly hard to come by. The company delivered world-beating performance at reasonable prices, which has only driven up demand. However, scarcity and selling out every CPU the company makes hasn't stopped the Red Team from working up a full lineup of Ryzen CPUs for its AM4 platform. We... Read more...
AMD released its Zen 3-based Ryzen 5000 desktop processor family in late 2020, and the company will soon be launching its Ryzen 5000 mobile processors, presumably next week at CES 2021. However, two new processors have been outed from an unlikely place: the USB-IF.  The two processors in question are the AMD Ryzen... Read more...
The situation surrounding the latest generation PC gaming hardware is both frustrating and annoying—certain desirable items are in short supply, and scripted bots only exacerbate things. So imagine finally getting your hands on a Ryzen 5000 series CPU, only for it to arrive damaged, as if Ace Ventura was the delivery... Read more...
AMD may have unleashed its Zen 3 architecture to the public in 2020, but this is the year that its latest generation CPU architecture will really spread its wings. In the coming months, the Ryzen 5000 series on the desktop will become more readily available (we hope, anyway), and Zen 3 will also be ported over to... Read more...
The age-old battle between AMD and Intel became interesting again when the former launched its Zen architecture in 2017, followed by Zen+ in 2018 and especially Zen 3 earlier this year. For the most part, Zen 3 put AMD ahead of its rival, in terms of overall performance, but will Intel retake the lead when Rocket... Read more...
You might be having a difficult time finding a Ryzen 5000 series processor in stock (and priced according to the MSRP), but when you do manage to get your hands on one (if you are in the market for a Zen 3 chip, that is), there will be an updated third-party utility waiting for you to help get the most out of your...

AMD and Intel are sitting pretty on Zen 3 and Comet Lake, respectively, but neither architecture represents the end game for either company. More chips are on the horizon, both on the desktop and in mobile. As it pertains to upcoming processor launches, there is a bevy of leaks to digest, including an Intel Rocket... Read more...
You're getting a Zen 3 processor, and you're getting a Zen 3 processor, and YOU'RE getting a Zen 3 processor...sorry, I don't know what came over me there. The truth of the matter of is, Zen 3 is hard to come by right now. It's also an awesome architecture, and is headed to mobile, likely very soon. The continued... Read more...
AMD launched its Zen 3-based Ryzen 5000 desktop CPU family back in early November to great acclaim. Performance across the board was off the charts, which has of course led to incredible demand, making it nearly impossible to find a processor in stock. The next big Zen 3 launch from AMD will be with the Ryzen 5000... Read more...
Zen 3-based Ryzen processors showed some really outstanding performance on the desktop when we looked at the Ryzen 9 5900X and 5950X. In the high-performance computing server space, though, 12 to 16 cores is the bare minimum, and systems only scale up from there. AMD has yet to announce its Zen 3 EPYC CPU platform... Read more...
It is safe to assume AMD will be unveiling a new generation of mobile processors, in part because it would be silly (and very bad for business) if that did not happen. What we are waiting on, however, are the details. Official details will have to wait, but in lieu of an actual announcement, it appears an online... Read more...
There is an interesting development in the land of leaks, which pertains to AMD's upcoming mobile Ryzen 5000 series. I emphasize "mobile" because AMD has already launched its desktop Ryzen 5000 series, based on its Zen 3 CPU architecture. Zen 3 will eventually find its way to laptops, and over at Geekbench (where... Read more...
One of AMD's upcoming mobile CPUs based on its Zen 3 architecture has made a benchmark appearance at Geekbench, that being the unannounced Ryzen 7 5800H. According to past leaks, this is one of several mobile CPUs on tap from AMD, which will be split between Zen 3 (Cezanne) and Zen 2 (Lucienne) models, with this... Read more...
Eventually AMD will get around to porting its Zen 3 architecture over to its mobile CPUs. Exactly when remains to be seen, but perhaps sooner than later, if the handful of leaks we have covered are any indication. Zen 3 is still brand new, but what are purported to be AMD's unannounced Ryzen 5000 series of mobile CPUs... Read more...
