AMD just concluded its “together we advance_PCs” livestream event, during which CEO Dr. Lisa Su and other members of the executive team unveiled the company’s launch plans for the upcoming Zen 4-based Ryzen 7000 series and its associated platform. We were lucky enough to be on-hand for the announcements and have... Read more...
The pricing of AMD’s launch salvo Ryzen 7000 processors has been leaked. We expect four new Zen 4 processors priced between $299 to $799 to become official shortly. Interestingly, in some additional pre-launch claims, we hear the delay between processor and motherboard availability will be almost two weeks. AMD’s... Read more...
A new leak has surfaced ahead of AMD's scheduled announcement of its upcoming Zen 4 architecture on Monday, August 29, 2022. The latest leak suggests that the Ryzen 9 7950X CPU could have a boost speed of up to 5.85GHz. The Ryzen 9 7950X, with a purported retail price of around $885, has been expected to arrive...

For a CPU series as close to launch as the Ryzen 7000 series supposedly is, we've seen scant few leaked benchmarks. We saw a couple of leaks for the six-core Ryzen 5 7600X model, and we also saw a Geekbench result for the Zen 4-based EPYC "Genoa" processor, but our first leaked benchmark result for the Ryzen 7 7700X...

Loyal HotHardware readers and newcomers alike; we are on the precipice of a whole bunch of new hardware. Besides Intel's Arc GPUs that are still finding their way to market, we've got new 13th-gen Core CPUs from the blue team, too. Then there's NVIDIA's next-generation Ada-architecture GPUs, and of course AMD has its... Read more...
An image of a purported AMD Ryzen 7 7700X processor is circulating online. According to prominent tech Twitterati this isn’t an image of a final retail sample of the Zen -based processor. Instead, what we are seeing here is a ‘Qualification Sample’ (QS) chip, which is a significant step forward from the earlier... Read more...
Seemingly as per tradition, a retailer has slipped up and posted detailed product information ahead of an official launch. This time around, PC Canada mistakenly pushed out listings for several of AMD’s upcoming Zen 4 CPUs. These processors are not expected to be formally unveiled until later this month with...

If you're reading this, you're probably a PC hardware enthusiast, and if you're a PC hardware enthusiast, there's a strong possibility you've built a Ryzen system recently. AMD's Ryzen processors have become very popular, particularly in the DIY market, and that's despite a couple of quirks you have to be careful of... Read more...
AMD's next-generation Ryzen processors are on the way, and the leaks we've seen so far are super promising. The chips perform well in single-threaded benchmarks, and that translates to solid GPU performance too. We haven't seen a leaked multi-threaded benchmark of the top-end 16-core part, but AMD's own demo of same... Read more...
By the end of this year, we're expecting new CPUs and GPUs from all three of the primary-color trifecta: Intel, AMD, and NVIDIA. The big question is what the order of releases will be. While release order does not matter that much from a historical perspective, it could be critical in securing mindshare for one... Read more...
Selecting fast memory is one of the more nuanced aspects of building an AMD Ryzen PC. We feel like the idea is fairly-well disseminated among the DIY community, but for those not familiar, the transfer rate of Ryzen processors' internal fabric is linked to their memory speed. Slow memory means slow fabric, which means... Read more...
Everyone is waiting with bated breath for the release of new hardware in the second half of this year. As we head into August and new CPUs and GPUs loom ever larger on the horizon, the leaks become more and more tantalizing. Today's leak regards one of AMD's upcoming Zen 4-based Ryzen 7000 processors. The processor in... Read more...
Back at Computex, AMD announced some extra details about the AM5 socket that its Zen 4 processors will slot into. In case you missed that information, Socket AM5 will be a Landing Grid Array (LGA) like Threadripper and competitor Intel's processors, and it will bring support for DDR5 memory and PCIe 5.0. It'll also be... Read more...
Did you see our post earlier about the purported delays for midrange and high-end GeForce 4000-series cards? Well, not content with laying out release windows for most of the impending hardware that's on the way, Twitter-leakster Greymon55 also had something to say about "Raphael-X". What is that, you may... Read more...
If it seems like an immense proportion of the news we cover lately comprises leaks and rumors for upcoming hardware, that's because it does. There is so much new hardware on the way from AMD, NVIDIA, Intel, and many other vendors. Of course, our focus is on PC hardware and adjacent technologies, so naturally it's the... Read more...
Sometime later this year, AMD will release a new round EPYC server CPUs based on its Zen 4 architecture, codenamed Genoa (EPYC 9000 series). While we stand by and wait for the next-gen chips to manifest, photos of engineering samples and AMD's accompanying massive SP5 socket have found their way to the web, giving us... Read more...
Regular HH readers may recall that Saturday before last, we reported on a rumor regarding the existence of processors based on Zen 4 CPU cores that slot into extant AM4 motherboards. Frequent leaker Greymon55 suggested that such a thing is possible, but admitted that he wasn't sure of the veracity of the... Read more...
If that headline leaves you wondering what Phoenix and Dragon Range are, let's get you up to speed first. Phoenix, apparently also known as Phoenix Point (not to be confused with the game of the same name), is the codename for AMD's future mobile CPUs based on the Zen 4 architecture. They'll include Zen 4 CPU cores... Read more...
AMD gambled that DDR5 memory prices and availability would be relatively stable by the time Zen 4 starts shipping, and it looks like that bet will pay off. After dropping in price by as much as 8 percent this quarter, DDR5 memory pricing is projected to fall even further next quarter, perhaps by as much as another 5... Read more...
It's astonishing how far CPUs have come in just the last few years. After stagnating at 4 cores while slowly growing single-threaded performance for nearly a decade, mainstream desktop CPUs have seen explosive growth in both single- and multi-core performance recently thanks to renewed competition between Intel and...

An important part of qualification testing is running the processor through a wide variety of benchmarks and stress tests to make sure it performs properly in each workload. That's one reason that we constantly see "leaks" of new and upcoming processors as their work gets sorted into benchmark databases and filed in... Read more...
At today's Financial Analyst Day, AMD revealed several tidbits of information about its forthcoming technologies and products roadmap, and the company also confirmed a few details that rumor-mongers have been reporting for months now. We're going to go over the company's announcements in the server space in future... Read more...
