In case you haven't heard, all accounts are that AMD is soon planning to release a refresh of its Navi 20-series graphics cards, otherwise known as the Radeon RX 6000 series. It seems a little strange to us to refresh your extant GPUs only a few months before releasing new models. However, just as rumors say that... Read more...
AMD is expanding its mainstream RDNA 2 graphics card line-up today with another Navi 23-based offering, the new Radeon RX 6600. As its name implies, the Radeon RX 6600 is a close relative to the Radeon RX 6600 XT, which launched just a few weeks back. This card also targets roughly the same audience, i.e. budget...

AMD is fleshing out its RDNA 2 lineup at the lower end of the performance spectrum with the Radeon RX 6600 XT (Navi 23). The company first announced the new GPU last week, and the cards will go on sale next week (August 11th) starting from $379. With this in mind, we were able to get our hands on a PowerColor Red...

Late last night, under the cover of darkness, AMD announced its latest flagship offering for 1080p gaming fanatics: the Radeon RX 6600 XT. Of course, the card wasn't a surprise to the enthusiast community, as it has been rumored for months. The Radeon RX 6600 XT is based on AMD's RDNA 2 architecture and features 32... Read more...
Do you think maybe AMD's add-in board (AIB) partners are anxious to unveil custom cards based around the not-yet-announced Radeon RX 6600 XT with a Navi 23 GPU underneath the hood? At least one of them can barely contain their excitement. That would be PowerColor, which apparently is prepping at least three custom... Read more...
We've been hearing quite a bit about AMD's incoming Radeon RX 6600 Series of mainstream Navi 23 graphics cards, and an official launch could happen soon. We say this because board partner PowerColor activated product pages for its Radeon RX 6600 and Radeon RX 6600 XT graphics cards. Unfortunately, the listings that... Read more...
We already know from our Radeon RX 6900 XT review that AMD's flagship graphics card is a fast performer in its own right. It does not quite take the performance crown from NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 3090, but it is still a beastly GPU. And hey, if you have a supply of liquid nitrogen that's freezing a hole in your pocket...

When it comes to current-generation graphics cards, obtaining something like a Radeon RX 6800 or Radeon RX 6800 XT at MSRP is a fanciful dream. Laying hands on the flagship Radeon RX 6900 XT is an even more daunting proposition, with sealed retail units selling at nearly twice their $999 MSRP on marketplaces like... Read more...
In this episode of HotHardware's Two And A Half Geeks, the guys kick around the sights and sounds of NVIDIA GTC 2021 including what NVIDIA's Grace CPU really means for data centers, we'll also be looking at an uber powerful new Radeon RX 6900 XT from PowerColor, Lenovo's sweet and petite ThinkPad X1 Nano, and lots of...

PowerColor has historically released its high-end, customized Red Devil-branded Radeons in lock-step with AMD. AMD launches a new GPU with one set of specifications, and a short time later, board partners like PowerColor come through with tweaked versions injected with their own special sauce. On the surface... Read more...
One of AMD's hardware partners appears to have tipped the company's hand with regards to the upcoming Radeon RX 6700. While nothing has been announced yet, leaks and rumors surrounding the non-XT variant have been swirling for several months, some of which suggested the card will debut with 12GB of GDDR6 memory. An... Read more...
AMD launched its Radeon RX 6800 and Radeon RX 6800 XT to the public last week, and as expected, they represented quite the performance leap over their Radeon RX 5700 and Radeon RX 5700 XT predecessors. More importantly, the cards traded blows with NVIDIA new GeForce RTX 30 Series. While neither company's cards offer... Read more...
This has been one hell of a year in many respects, and so it is only appropriate that 2020 comes to an end with the devil making an appearance. The "Red Devil," that is, once again summoned by PowerColor, this time to torture games for all of eternity (or at least the next few years) with factory overclocked Radeon RX... Read more...
To quote Jack Nicholson as The Joker, "Have you ever danced with the Devil in the pale moonlight?" Well put on your dancing shoes, because PowerColor is getting ready to raise hell (again), with the Radeon RX 6800 XT Red Devil. No release date has been set, but it is possible the card will arrive later this month... Read more...
We recently had the chance to spend some time with the folks at Maingear HQ and built a beautiful, water-cooled AMD Rzyen 3000-based rig. That system was destined for Dave’s lab and has become his daily workhorse – in fact, that rig produced the video you’ll see below. Not long after we took that... Read more...
A little over a month ago, AMD launched the Navi-based Radeon RX 5700 series to mostly good reviews. The cards offered competitive performance at their respective price points, with power efficiency that was vastly superior to AMD’s previous-generation Vega-based Radeons. One of the things some folks took issue... Read more...
If Paul Revere was still around and he was into PC gaming, he would be storming the streets yelling, "Custom Navi cards are coming!" We already know this, of course, because AMD has already indicated that its hardware partners will launch custom Navi models starting around the middle of August. Ahead of the... Read more...
AMD has had a fairly sizable hole in its graphics card line-up for quite some time now. Disregarding the craziness crypto-miners caused for a while there, pricing on the Radeon RX 580 has hovered around the $200 mark, whereas most of the Radeon RX Vega 56 cards currently available sell for over $400 – give or...

It now seems like a foregone conclusion that AMD and its hardware partners will be rolling out a new Radeon RX 590 model based on a refreshed Polaris GPU. Following rumors that ASUS is prepping a Radeon RX 590 ROG Strix graphics card, a purported press render of a PowerColor Radeon RX 590 Red Devil has found its way... Read more...
The oft-leaked and frequently teased PowerColor Radeon RX Vega Nano Edition is not only a real graphics card, it's going to launch at Computex next month, PowerColor confirmed in an email. The company is pitching it as "the smallest Vega card in the market," but for "gamers who don't ant any performance compromises in... Read more...
A shortened version of AMD's Radeon RX Vega becomes more real by the day. Not that the Radeon RX Vega Nano was ever fake—AMD's senior director of global marketing PR, Chris Hook, briefly teased the card at SIGGRAPH 2017—it just has not been released, or even officially announced. It does show up from time to time... Read more...
Things have been relatively quiet on the graphics front in recent months. AMD launched its Radeon RX Vega 56 and Vega 64 cards last summer, then spent months trying to ramp up production. And when production stabilized, the cryptocurrency gold rush once again wiped out supplies. Despite the most gamers being unable to... Read more...
