AMD has been killing it on the CPU side with its evolving Zen architecture, and based on a barrage of past leaks and rumors, Zen 3 will keep the momentum going. On the graphics side, AMD has more work to do. It's upcoming RDNA 2 architecture has the potential to shake things up, but it's too early to tell. And with... Read more...
Earlier this week, a rumor was making the rounds that AMD could potentially be delaying its Zen 3-based Ryzen 4000 desktop processors until early next year. The basis of the rumor was centered upon a couple of assumptions: 1) that the newly announced Ryzen 3000XT family would be sufficient to sustain AMD’s performance... Read more...
AMD has been riding high from a performance/value perspective ever since it launched its Zen 2-based Ryzen 3000 family in Summer 2019. The chips were untouched when it came to multi-threaded performance – thanks to the Ryzen 9 3900X and Ryzen 9 3950X – and single-threaded performance was strong too. Throw in... Read more...
Every indication up to this point is that AMD's upcoming Zen 3 CPUs will be based on an enhanced 7-nanometer manufacturing process, with Zen 4 seeing an eventual shift to 5nm. But what if that was not the case? What if AMD decided to shake things up and jump straight to 5nm with its next round of CPUs instead, in... Read more...
AMD is out there living the good life right now. Zen has proven to be a formidable contender, it seems like a Zen 2 refresh is en route, and looking further down the road, Zen 3 will likely keep the party going. As it pertains to the latter, a new leak potentially sheds some light on what AMD has on tap, both for its... Read more...
Just over a week ago, AMD gave us an update on its upcoming Zen 3-based Ryzen 4000 desktop processors, and the platforms that would support the chips. That update, however, didn’t go over very well with the enthusiast community, as AMD explained that only current-generation X570 and B550 motherboards would support Zen... Read more...
Rumor has it that AMD's next round of Ryzen processors will have a bigger than expected bump in IPC (instructions per clock) performance. Built on a new architecture, Zen 3 will see a die shrink and, most likely, some notable performance optimizations, power efficiency gains, and upgraded features. But all eyes will... Read more...
AMD has made a big deal about the longevity of its AM4 socket, and rightfully so—frequent socket changes effectively eliminate or seriously hamper potential upgrade paths when building a PC. The question is, will AM4 extend out to AMD's upcoming Zen 3 processors? AMD said it will, on select chipsets, and even hinted... Read more...
AMD is out there living the good life right now, racking up design wins and reaping the rewards of its engineering and marketing efforts. In the first quarter of 2020, AMD raked in $1.79 billion in revenue, which is an impressive gain of 40 percent compared to the same quarter a year ago (albeit down 16 percent... Read more...
It seems as it was just yesterday when AMD launched its Ryzen 4000 APUs based on Zen 2 "Renoir" architecture. The processors are giving Intel a real run for the money with respect to performance, and as we've seen with the ASUS ROG Strix Hero III, Ryzen 4000 processors are incredibly power efficient as well. AMD... Read more...
Sometime later this year, AMD will unveil its Zen 3 CPU architecture with a new Ryzen 4000 series of desktop CPUs (not to be confused with AMD's Ryzen 4000 series of mobile chips based on Zen 2). The question is, will these next-gen parts still leverage the AM4 socket? It certainly seems that way, based on everything... Read more...
The pace of progress is swift these days over at AMD. Since launching its first generation Zen architecture three years ago, there have been two more iterations, Zen+ and Zen 2, with Zen 3 on track to release this year. AMD has not yet announced an official launch date, but the word out of the rumor mill is that Zen 3... Read more...
AMD has been enjoying a good run with its Ryzen family of processors, and has garnered particular praise for its most recent Ryzen 3000 processors. In the tech industry, everyone is always looking forward to the next best thing, and in the case of AMD consumer desktop processors, that means the Ryzen 4000... Read more...
AMD held its Financial Analyst Day today and the company offered up a broad overview of what we should expect in terms of roadmap technologies execution over the next few years. Some of the topics that were touched on included next-generation RDNA 2 Navi GPU architectures, completely new CDNA GPUs optimized for the... Read more...
Barring something unforeseen and catastrophic, Zen 3 is definitely making a debut this year. We know this because AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su has indicated as much on numerous occasions, including in a recent interview in which she also promised "Big Navi" (Navi 20) would make a 2020 debut as well. If anyone requires even... Read more...
AMD has been making some serious inroads on Intel's market share in the lucrative server market for the past two years. It all started with the company's first-generation Zen-based EPYC 7001 processors, with the second assault coming in 2019 with the Zen 2-based EPYC 7002 processors. AMD wants to keep that momentum...

We learned earlier this week that AMD is gearing up to launch new 500 Series chipsets -- A520 and B550 -- to help lower the cost of entry for desktop systems running Ryzen 3000 processors. These chipsets are reportedly being produced by long-time AMD partner ASMedia Technology. The latest news concerning AMD... Read more...
It is fair to say 2019 was a very good year for AMD. It came out with Zen 2, which marked a wholesale shift to 7-nanometer manufacturing, and has positioned itself for long term growth in the CPU and GPU sectors. Now that 2020 is upon us, AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su shared a bit about what we can expect from the company going... Read more...
There's some exciting news coming out of Taiwan this morning, and it involves TSMC wafer production and two of its most high-profile customers: AMD and Apple. Both AMD and Apple rely heavily on TSMC's 7nm fabs to produce their processors, with the former booking orders for its Navi GPUs and Zen 2-based processors... Read more...
As we look back at 2019, one thing is for sure—AMD is a force to be reckoned with, thanks in large part to the continued evolution of its Zen CPU architecture. Make no mistake, though, AMD is not resting on its laurels. Now that 2020 is official under way, AMD is promising to "push the envelope yet again" in the... Read more...
AMD has been riding high on its Zen 2 workhorses as of late, but the resurgent CPU manufacturer is hardly resting on its laurels. Processor designs tend to have long lead times, so it should be no surprise to anyone that the company has been working on its next-generation architecture for quite a while. It's not every...
