AMD's latest round of high-end desktop (HEDT) processors based on its Zen 3 architecture were never going to be cheap, but exactly how much will they cost? We didn't know the answer when AMD announced its Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5000 WX series CPUs last week. Now we do, though, and it bears repeating—they're not... Read more...
AMD is making a change to its Ryzen Threadripper launch strategy, and with it comes an expansion of its Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5000 WX series processors to more PCs, including the DIY segment. There will not be any non-Pro models, as AMD has chosen to unify its Threadripper and Threadripper Pro product... Read more...
Even as mainstream consumer processors push out more cores, more threads, and heaps of cache, there is still a market for even more powerful high end desktop (HEDT) silicon. Maybe not a massive market, but enough so that AMD recently unveiled another round of Threadripper processors, and it looks like Intel is getting... Read more...
It has been a little bit since Intel launched a new high-end desktop (HEDT) lineup, the last one being Cascade Lake-X, which debuted in late 2019. Now with Alder Lake set to arrive in the coming weeks, could another round of Core-X processors be on the horizon? If the latest leak is true, the answer is yes, though... Read more...
It appears all kinds of juicy information is being revealed as the result of a recent ransomware attack targeting Gigabyte.

Earlier this month Intel announced seven new members of its Core X-Series of "Basin Falls Refresh" HEDT processors. The flagship of the family is the Core i9-9980XE, which supplants the Core i9-7980XE that launched last year. Given that this newest crop of HEDT processors is supposed to hit store shelves next month... Read more...
Last year, Intel threw down the gauntlet with respect to HEDT processors with the Core X-Series. Available with up to 18 cores (36 threads), these chips provided a stiff challenge to AMD's first-generation Ryzen Threadripper processors (albeit with much higher MSRPs). Now with AMD's second-generation Ryzen... Read more...
There's a new X399 motherboard chipset coming this year from a major chip manufacturer. No, we're not talking about a revamped version of AMD's X399 chipset used in its Ryzen Threadripper processors, but an X399 chipset from Intel that will be used in its own 2018 family of HEDT processors.  A document on Intel's...

When it comes to the high-end desktop market (HEDT), the gloves are coming off. Both Intel and AMD are ready to duke it out, with the former offering processors with up to 18 cores and 36 threads, while the latter is countering with up to 16 cores and 32 threads. Up until this point, the most potent member of Intel’s... Read more...
Yesterday, we received advance notice that the AMD Ryzen Threadripper family would be expanding to include at least four additional members. While we unfortunately don’t have four new SKUs to introduce to you today, AMD did confirm one of the new processors that we talked about yesterday: the Ryzen Threadripper... Read more...
Up until this point, Intel has been relatively mum on details surrounding its new high-end Core i9 SKUs: the Core i9-7920X, Core i9-7940X, Core i9-7960X and Core i9-7980XE. As we come closer to the launch of these core-rific processors, Intel has spilled beans on two additional specs for the Core i9-7920X. This... Read more...
We’ve been talking up Intel’s upcoming High-End Desktop (HEDT) processor family for the past few weeks. Each report has shed just a little bit more insight into Kaby Lake-X, Skylake-X and the X299 chipset that will support the processors. Today, we’re being presented with the motherlode of information on the six... Read more...
