One of the more peculiar statements to come out of a processor company last year was AMD's insistence that the Navi 31 GPU was "architected for 3GHz". As hardware enthusiasts will likely be aware, even the top-end Radeon RX 7900 XTX doesn't approach 3GHz most of the time. It can go well past that clock rate in some... Read more...
If you read reviews of AMD's recent Radeon releases, you may have noticed a trend. Many outlets, including us, noticed a huge gulf between the average GPU temperature and the GPU hotspot reading. Deltas of 30°C aren't uncommon, and some users have seen even larger gaps. It turns out AMD is aware of the issue, and is... Read more...
AMD's brand-new Radeon RX 7900 series graphics cards are very fast, but just like any new tech, they're not without their problems. AMD says it plans to fix up Navi 31's foibles in the drivers, and the first step toward that path was released today: AMD Adrenalin Software 22.12.2 is exclusively for the Radeon RX 7900...

MSI can be a weirdly polarizing brand. By any reasonable measure the company makes quality products, but for whatever reason MSI tends to be a love-'em-or-hate-'em brand. If you're a die-hard member of the Dragon Army, you might've been wondering where MSI's new Radeon cards are. Well, the answer is that they don't... Read more...
Radeon RX 7900 XT & 7900 XTX: Starting At $899 The new RDNA 3-based Radeon RX 7900 series is a massive upgrade over the previous generation, but still faces stiff competition from NVIDIA.

Throughout the period encompassing the Radeon HD 7000 series, the Radeon Rx 200 series, Rx 300 series, Polaris, Fury, and Vega, AMD struggled with efficiency. Its GPUs were powerful, and had brute-force might to spare, but that didn't always translate into the top-shelf gaming performance the company would have liked to have offered. Ever... Read more...
Before AMD announced its RDNA 3-based Radeon RX 7900 series graphics cards on Thursday, wild rumors were flying from regularly-reliable leakers about their clock rates. Numbers as high as 4 GHz were bandied about. The final parts are clocked well below 3 GHz, with the RX 7900 XT topping out at 2.5 GHz, but AMD... Read more...
AMD graphics card partner PowerColor is teasing a devilish new product, just hours ahead of AMD's highly anticipated RDNA 3 launch event. PowerColor doesn't mention any particular GPU by name, but we don't think Sherlock Holmes will have to leave Baker Street to solve this mystery. In the image that accompanies... 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...
As we stated in our Radeon RX 6900 XT review, this is a fast graphics card that essentially matches the GeForce RTX 3090 in rasterized games (it depends on the title, obviously). It's a beast for sure. However, it could be utterly slow by comparison if the latest Navi 31 rumor ends up being true. If so, AMD's... Read more...
It is still too early for AMD to offer up any real details about its next generation Radeon products based on RDNA 3, though in making preparations for the eventual launch, the company has seemingly confirmed two unreleased GPUs: Navi 33 and Navi 31. Both have been added to documentation for AMD's ROCclr, or Radeon... Read more...
Everything is fine and dandy when it comes to performance in the current-generation discrete GPU market -- that is if you can get your hands on a GeForce RTX 30 or Radeon RX 6000 card. However, there are always people looking towards the next big thing, which is undoubtedly the case for next-generation... Read more...
It may seem premature to start discussing AMD's next-generation Radeon DNA (RDNA 3) graphics architecture when RDNA 2 parts have barely penetrated the market. Be that as it may, the web is tangled with rumors, leaked information, and juicy nuggets of information. Of particular interest is the supposed makeup of Navi... Read more...
Sitting just a little off in the distance is a new graphics architecture from AMD, which will power both next-gen game consoles (Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5) and a refreshed line of PC graphics cards. We are of course talking about RDNA 2. This is what will power 'Big Navi', the unofficial name of AMD's next burly... Read more...
