AMD's current-generation Ryzen 7000 desktop processors came out in September of 2022. That's over 16 months ago. Intel's gearing up to launch its own Arrow Lake second-generation tiled processors on the desktop, and naturally, AMD is readying its competitor: the Zen 5 architecture and the CPUs bearing it, likely to be...

We've thought for a while about doing a post rounding up all the current leaks and rumors about AMD's upcoming Zen 5 processors, because there's quite a bit of information out there. Well, we don't have to compile the information ourselves anymore, it turns out, because YouTuber High Yield has already done the work... Read more...
AMD's next desktop processor release will be based on the Hawk Point silicon originally intended for mobile machines including laptops, tablets, and handheld gaming consoles. The Ryzen 8000G family, despite the incremented model number, is still based on the Zen 4 CPU architecture, just with the addition of RDNA3... Read more...
As PC hardware enthusiasts, we talk about code names a lot. Stuff like "Raptor Lake" and "Bergamo" are technically internal names that aren't really supposed to be used in an official context. Intel, for example, would prefer that we say "13th-Generation Intel Core Processor" and AMD would like to read "AMD EPYC... Read more...
The first three generations of AMD Ryzen processors were given model numbers in the 1000s, the 2000s, and then the 3000s. However, between the launch of the Ryzen 3000 family and AMD's next-gen processors, the company released some refreshed APUs that it gave a 4000-series model number. That meant that the...

Believe it or not, it's already been over a year since AMD released its desktop Ryzen 7000 series processors based on Zen 4, along with its socket AM5 platform that it plans to support through at least 2026 (AMD initially said through 2025, then later extended its commitment). What that all means is it's not too early... Read more...
AIDA64 was just updated and adds a plethora of benchmarking support support for a number of current and upcoming CPUs, and GPUs. The most interesting update is preliminary benchmarking support for AMD’s upcoming Zen 5 desktop and server processors, which are set to be released sometime this year. GPU-Z also received...

AMD's "Phoenix Point" processors are only now becoming widely-available in the marketplace, but enthusiasts are already looking ahead to Phoenix's Zen 5-based successor, Strix Point. Not that there's anything wrong with Phoenix; that's the foundation of the Ryzen Z1 Extreme processor in the ASUS ROG Ally, and we came... Read more...
AMD's current-generation desktop and laptop processors are fundamentally based on two designs: Raphael, also known as Dragon Range in laptops, and then Phoenix (or possibly Phoenix Point), created specifically for portable PCs. The former is a chiplet processor that offers up to 16 cores, while the latter is a... Read more...
AMD and Intel have rather similar mobile strategies at this point. Both companies ship two types of laptop CPUs—larger chips, marked "HX", which are based on silicon that is also used for desktop CPUs, and then smaller processors that are specifically intended for mobile usage. These are typically marked H, HS, P, or... Read more...
If you read that headline and thought, "what the heck, Zen 4 just came out," I have bad news for you, friend. The Ryzen 7000 series processors for desktop and their Socket AM5 platform came out last September—over nine months ago. It'll still be a long while yet before we see the release of any Zen 5 processors, but... Read more...
An engineering sample of a Ryzen 8000 Zen 5 CPU was supposedly seen in the wild according to a listing from Einstein@Home. According to @Benchleaks who Tweeted about the post, the CPU could potentially be a Zen 5 chip, due to the unique number ID that the engineering sample possesses. However, it is impossible to...

AMD held another webinar in its "Meet the Experts" series, which is a place for AMD to give presentations with its partners. The most recent presentation was about using AMD's Ryzen processors in server and workstation systems, and included presenters from ASRock, Gigabyte, and MSI, though none of that is important to...

A leaked document has reportedly revealed key specifications for AMD’s upcoming Ryzen 8000 desktop CPU lineup, codenamed Granite Ridge. The most noteworthy specs include a core count range between six and 16 cores for the entire CPU lineup, the use of AMD’s Zen 5 CPU architecture, and the use of TSMC’s N3E or N3P... Read more...
Jim Keller's been getting around in the last decade or so. Back in the early 00s, he was critical to the development of the Athlon 64 at AMD, and in more recent years, he's been at Apple, Tesla, Intel, and AMD again before joining AI-focused chip creator Tenstorrent where he has quickly become CEO. Every... Read more...
You probably know Gigabyte most as a motherboard vendor, but it has a whole server arm known relatively recently as "Giga Computing." As part of an announcement for new Ryzen-based server systems, Giga Computing put out a press release that includes the following text: It starts out innocently enough; AMD did... Read more...
AMD's Zen 4-based Ryzen 7000 processors have just barely hit the market. Still, progress marches on, and software developers are looking ahead to AMD's next generation based on the Zen 5 architecture. Those chips won't be here for a year or more, but at least one application is already adding support for them. If... 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...
AMD is evidently going to bring out the heavy artillery in the server space, if the latest round of leaks end up being accurate. Looking beyond what's on tap for AMD's next-gen Zen 4 EPYC processors (codenamed Genoa), it is said the Zen 4 lineup (codenamed Turin) will come loaded with up to 256 cores and 512 threads...

We all know Alder Lake is right around the corner, and rumors have increased in frequency pertaining to its successor, Raptor Lake, which allegedly has already been taped-in. Leaks and rumors get a bit murkier when looking further in the distance, but be that as it may, the latest chatter points to a supposed and... Read more...
Fueling rumors that AMD is at least mulling, if not outright planning a hybrid future for Zen is a newly published patent outlining a "method of task transition between heterogeneous processors." AMD filed the patent in December 2019. It gets into some of the nitty-gritty details, but the general takeaways is that... Read more...
AMD is having the time of its life with Zen 3, and then in early 2022 (presumably), it will look to keep its momentum going with Zen 4, which is rumored to deliver a 20 percent IPC performance uplift. Looking even further down the roadmap, however, it is Zen 5 that could prove the most interesting of the bunch. AMD is... Read more...
