AMD is on the cusp of expanding its Radeon RX 6000 series with the Radeon RX 6600 XT and Radeon RX 6600, both of which have been the subject of multiple leaks and rumors over the past several weeks. One of the big question marks is pricing. It seems there is some good news on that front—if the latest gossip is to be... Read more...
Well, what do we have here? It seems AMD is getting close to refreshing its line of professional graphics cards, and a couple of pictures of an upcoming card design have surfaced on the web. On the outside, they show a slightly different design to the cooling shroud that will be featured on AMD's next Radeon Pro... Read more...
Earlier this month, AMD took the wraps off the latest addition to its RDNA 2-based family of Radeons, the Radeon RX 6700 XT. During the livestreamed event, AMD disclosed that it was targeting high-framerate 1440p gaming with the Radeon RX 6700 XT, and that it would employ a new release strategy in an effort to get as many cards into gamers’...

Give it some time and both AMD and NVIDIA will inevitably flesh out their latest generation graphics card lineups with more SKUs. NVIDIA so far has been a bit more aggressive than AMD, having followed up its initial launch of three cards with the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti and GeForce RTX 3060. However, there is more... Read more...
AMD stuck with the script when launching a new generation of graphics cards, by focusing on higher end models first. So right out of the gate, we had the Radeon RX 6900 XT ($999 MSRP), Radeon RX 6800 XT ($649 MSRP), and Radeon RX 6800 ($579 MSRP). The real money, however, is made in selling more affordable options. To... Read more...
The bulk of the anticipation over AMD's upcoming graphics card launch is centered on Big Navi, and how whatever ends up being its flagship part from the upcoming Radeon RX 6000 series (assuming it's called that) will compare to the best NVIDIA has to offer. We will find out in due time. However, the enthusiast sector... Read more...
AMD's Navi family of graphics cards falls into a pretty tight price range currently, from the $170 Radeon RX 5500 XT 4 GB to the $400 Radeon RX 5700 XT, where AMD's Navi-based GPU ambitions max out (for now). Anything priced lower than that relied on the older cut down GCN Radeon RX 500 parts. While NVIDIA counts down... Read more...
By now, AMD's Radeon RX 5700 family of GPUs is a pretty well-known quantity. The Navi architecture that makes up the current crop of AMD-based graphics cards offers pretty good bang for the buck from the mainstream Radeon RX 5500 XT up to the biggest and baddest Radeon RX 5700 XT, thanks to aggressive pricing and the...

The second half of 2020 is going to be interesting, as it pertains to graphics products. AMD, NVIDIA, and even Intel are all planning to come out with new discrete GPU solutions. For AMD, that includes its Big Navi launch, based on its forthcoming second generation Radeon DNA (RDNA 2) graphics architecture. While we... Read more...
The GPU we have been waiting for from AMD is coming sometime later this year. Our collective hope is that AMD's so-called Big Navi GPU based on its second generation Radeon DNA (RDNA 2) architecture will at least bring parity at the top end with the best NVIDIA has to offer, but we will have to wait and see. As for... Read more...
All eyes are on AMD to see what its next-generation GPU will bring to the table when it arrives later this year, both in consoles (PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X) and on PCs. Perhaps as a sign that a release on the latter is getting close, AMD pushed out more than 200 Linux patches to support a new GPU codenamed... Read more...
The Coronavirus pandemic has been depressing on multiple levels (not the least of which is the loss of life), and who knows if we will still be collectively cooped up this summer. Even if so, there is something look forward to—the potential launch of next generation GPUs from both AMD and NVIDIA, at the tail end of... Read more...
AMD is further fleshing out its professional workstation graphics cards line-up, with an additional Navi-based offering that targets a more affordable price point. The Radeon Pro W5500 we will be showing you here offers essentially the same feature set as its more powerful cousin, the Radeon Pro W5700, but it's outfitted with a scaled down... Read more...
Last week, a semi-anonymous hacker made headlines when they brazenly posted supposed source code to GitHub outlining chunks of AMD's next-generation Radeon DNA 2 (RDNA 2) GPU architecture, as found in the upcoming Xbox Series X game console. The hacker valued the stolen data at $100 million, but can it really be... Read more...
In this latest episode of our 2.5 Geek podcast, the team talk AMD's Zen 4-based EPYC super-computer design win, NVIDIA's Ampere next-gen GPU citings, Ray Tracing in the Xbox Series X and AMD's "Big Navi" Radeon, Samsung's T7 Touch snappy external SSD, and how you could get in on our giveaway to win a killer Alienware...

Two weeks ago, we alerted you to some alarming “black screen” issues affecting gamers with Radeon Navi-based graphics cards. Navi is AMD’s newest 7nm based RDNA architecture, and underpins everything from the Radeon RX 5500 to the Radeon RX 5700 XT. Fortunately for gamers (and AMD), the black screen problems don’t...

A new report from Jon Peddie Research is giving us some insight into GPU shipment for Q4 2019, and it shows that AMD had a big quarter. According to the firm, overall GPU shipments were up 3.4 percent compared to Q3 2019. Intel saw its shipments fall by a scant 0.2 percent, while NVIDIA’s shipments decreased by 1.9... Read more...
Anticipation is running high for AMD's second-generation Radeon DNA (RDNA 2) graphics architecture, the one that will underpin the so called 'Big Navi' GPU. Will it dethrone NVIDIA's competing Turing lineup, or be competitive with upcoming Ampere parts? Those questions will be answered at a later date. In the... Read more...
AMD has gone all-in with 7-nanometer manufacturing, with both its Zen 2 CPU and Navi GPU architectures being built on a 7nm node. And for the most part, the move to 7nm has served the company well. There is just one hiccup—a growing chorus of Radeon RX 5700 and Radeon RX 5700 XT owners are complaining of black screen... Read more...
