AMD has been tearing it up in the desktop market with its Ryzen 5000 series processors since their release, but news on the Threadripper front has been comparatively quiet. Threadripper and Threadripper Pro 3000 series processors launched all the way back in 2020, and up until a few months ago the company hadn’t been talking much about... Read more...
AMD recently teased a range of new motherboards their partners have been cooking up. Yesterday's Meet The Experts webinar revealed key details about X670 and X670E motherboards from the likes of ASUS, MSI, ASRock, Gigabyte, and Biostar. These boards leverage the new AM5 socket which will be required to support AMD’s... 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...
Memory bandwidth is one of the most important specifications that determines a graphics card's performance potential. It reflects the maximum data throughput rate between the GPU chip itself and its memory packages. That's why hardware nerds like us are always quite keen to hear what the final shipping memory speed... 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...
PC hardware companies work in funny ways sometimes. When AMD had a new driver ready that added extra features with arguably niche appeal, like its AMD Link in-home streaming tech, it was very excited to tell us about it, and have us tell you about it. However, when it released a new driver recently with real... Read more...
Sometime on Wednesday, AMD’s online product resource library momentarily revealed a quartet of Ryzen 7000 CPUs. Among the CPUs ‘confirmed’ by this lapse were the AMD Ryzen 9 7950X and 7900X, Ryzen 7 7700X, and Ryzen 5 7600X. There were no other codename Raphael reveals, though of course the full range is expected to... 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...
AMD has launched its Adrenalin Edition 22.7.1 driver software with some welcome and important changes. The new driver adds support for a completely new feature for Radeon GPU users dubbed AMD Noise Suppression. Secondly, if you enjoy OpenGL gaming titles, you might see up to an 85% performance uplift using this new... Read more...
On Tuesday, Hong Kong-based graphics card maker AFOX stoked up excitement about the next-gen GPU race by registering a plethora of NVIDIA GeForce RTX 40 and AMD Radeon RX 7000 graphics card model names. Neither the green nor red team have confirmed upcoming model names, so these are interesting to see. However... Read more...
AMD has prepared a warm-up event ahead of the impending Ryzen 7000 series processor launch. On Friday, August 5, it will be getting together with its most important manufacturing partners to showcase a wide range of AM5 motherboards. The hour long-event should be entertaining enough as top-end reps from ASUS... Read more...
You've probably heard that tech companies have stopped hiring lately. This is true of Apple and Google, but it's not universal. AMD is hiring, and even building a new campus for its Radeon Technology Group division. Older hardware enthusiasts will remember that the Radeon Technology Group started life as Array... Read more...
Intel would obviously love it if your next PC paired one of its Core processors with an Arc-powered graphics card, like the Arc A750 or A770 (neither of which is actually available yet, but should be soon). That doesn't mean it's going to shun support for AMD's platforms with its GPUs, though. That would be ludicrous... Read more...
Alright, alright, I already know what you're thinking—you don't care what the new GPUs look like as long as they perform. The thing is, looking at these renders actually can give us some perspective on what to expect from each of AMD's next-gen Radeon GPUs. Created by Wild_C (@_wildc on Twitter) based on leaks...

520 mm²—that's the size of the Navi 21 GPU used in the Radeon RX 6800, RX 6800 XT, RX 6900 XT, and RX 6950 XT. Even though it's dwarfed by NVIDIA's biggest GPUs, that's still a seriously sizable chip. Rumors had placed the top-end RDNA 3-based part in the Radeon RX 7000 series at a slightly larger size, circa 600 mm²... 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...
Started as a company by a man with a vision for powerful handheld PC gaming, AyaNeo has blossomed into a whole brand with multiple product categories. If you gloss over headlines about the handheld PCs and are confused about the models, don't worry; your author had to do a lot of research to get this story... 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...
You ask PC hardware enthusiasts why they don't have an AMD graphics card and you'll get a few different answers. Some folks will remark that they wanted RTX before AMD had its own ray-tracing acceleration. Others will say that they wanted to play OpenGL games on Windows—historically a weakpoint of the Radeon family... Read more...
Let's be frank: it was a pleasant surprise when AMD's Radeon RX 6000-family graphics cards were able to provide solid competition for (and even outpace, at times) NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 3000 series. The RX Vega series, while competent, didn't live up to its promise, and the first-generation RDNA-based Radeon cards in... Read more...
We don't need to tell you that the economy is slipping around the world; you're probably already feeling the effects of inflation in your food costs, gas tank, and power bill. Compared to your larger home appliances, a gaming PC is a relatively small portion of your power budget, but that may not stay that way for... Read more...
