When the Steam Deck hit the scene, it entered a market already occupied by a handful of niche devices, including the AYANEO NEXT. When the two were compared head-to-head, the AYANEO NEXT pulled ahead of the Steam Deck simply because of its hardware advantages, but there's a new contender approaching. AYANEO just... Read more...
First there were three, then another, then another, and so forth until there were eight. We're talking about the Radeon RX 6000 series of desktop graphics cards, which spans the Radeon RX 6400 on up to the Radeon RX 6900 XT. Or at least that was the case yesterday. Today there's a new top SKU, the Radeon RX 6950 XT... Read more...
AMD chose not to make a big ballyhoo over the latest addition to its RDNA 2 lineup, the Radeon RX 6400, and instead opted for a low key launch. All the same, it's out now and it's not a paper launch either—there are a few retail listings with cards in stock. So what are we looking at, in terms of pricing, specs, and... Read more...
The GPU nightmare might not be over just yet, but every month we get a little bit closer to waking up to a stabilized market. Whether we get all the way there before AMD and NVIDIA begin shipping out next-gen graphics cards remains to be seen, and that presents gamers with any interesting quandary—does it make sens to...

At this point, the it feels like a foregone conclusion that AMD will refresh its Radeon RX 6000 series with a few upgraded models, including the Radeon RX 6950 XT, Radeon RX 6750 XT, and Radeon RX 6650 XT. They're coming, unless the growing pile of leaks and rumors are all off target. And we can add one more to the... Read more...
Word around the web is that AMD is getting ready to refresh its Radeon RX 6000 series with a few new models, and specifically the Radeon RX 6950 XT, Radeon RX 6750 XT, and Radeon RX 6650 XT.

Just over a month ago, Samsung introduced its "game changing" Exynos 2200 processor with an Xclipse 920 GPU based on AMD's RDNA 2 graphics architecture. The combination was hyped as enabling "the ultimate mobile phone gaming experience." And maybe it will after some optimizing. But as of right now, the benchmarks that... Read more...
We were told in no uncertain terms that with the arrival of the Exynos 2200 with a GPU powered by AMD's RDNA 2 graphics architecture, "play time is over." And in a promotional video (see below), Samsung declared this would be the "chip to change the mobile gaming experience." Big words and big promises for sure, but... Read more...
If AMD is in the rear view mirror (arguable), that's only because it keeps making pit stops to collect more money from skyrocketing Zen 3 and RDNA 2 sales. So says the company's latest earnings report. AMD capped off a record year with $4.8 billion in revenue during the fourth quarter, which pushed its full-year... Read more...
AMD is fleshing out its current-generation Radeon Pro lineup with RDNA 2 underneath the hood with the introduction of the Radeon Pro W6400. It slides into the lineup beneath the existing Radeon Pro W6600 for medium to high-level workloads, and the Radeon Pro W6800 designed for high to extreme workstation workloads. So... Read more...
So, how about all those Exynos 2200 rumors and reports? Turns out they were nonsense, at least the ones claiming it had been delayed indefinitely or even scrapped. There was indeed a bit of a wait for its arrival, but at long last, Samsung has officially lifted the curtain on its Exynos 2200 system-on-chip (SoC)... Read more...
A refresh might be in store for AMD's Radeon RX 6000 series graphics cards as we wait for next-generation RDNA 3 parts to arrive. If so, AMD would be taking a similar approach as NVIDIA, the latter of which has introduced an upgraded GeForce RTX 3080 with more memory, and is rumored to be doing the same to its GeForce...

Samsung's upcoming Galaxy S22 launch is shaping up to be quite the reveal, and not just because a new flagship smartphone is on the horizon. Related to that, there's an interesting side story taking place—will or will not the Galaxy S22 come packing Samsung's own Exynos 2200 system-on-chip with an infusion of AMD's... Read more...
It wasn't even a full two weeks ago when Samsung declared on Twitter, "The gaming marketplace is about to get serious." The tweet was in reference to its upcoming reveal of its "next Exynos with the new GPU born from RDNA 2," and we were told to "Stay tuned" for a January 11 unveiling. Well, January has come and gone... Read more...
Did you hear about the Radeon RX 6500 XT? AMD announced the little video card on Tuesday at its pre-CES show. The company didn't reveal many specifications about the new card, but thanks to earlier leaks as well as some clever deduction, we already know most of the relevant details. The card is based on the tiny Navi... Read more...
In case anyone had any doubt about what Samsung is planning to infuse in its next-generation Exynos system-on-chip (SoC), the company set the matter straight on Twitter. Partially, anyway—Samsung confirmed its next Exynos chip will feature a custom GPU "born from RDNA 2," which is AMD's latest-generation graphics... Read more...
It is widely expected that AMD will introduce some new processors at or around the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) next week, as it has a livestream planned for the day before the event kicks off. If a recent leak is true, a new line of APUs will be among the announcements, with some interesting details emerging about... Read more...
AMD is rolling out a new graphics product based on its second-generation Radeon DNA (RDNA 2) architecture, though it's not for home PCs and consumers. Instead, the Radeon Pro V620 is a multi-purpose GPU accelerator for cloud workloads. That includes doling out "immersive AAA game experiences" through cloud... Read more...
One thing we can say with supreme confidence is that AMD is not finished fleshing out its Radeon RX 6000 series. Whether any of the cards will ever be in sufficient stock, that's another topic entirely. But there will be more SKUs. Namely, we can expect a Radeon RX 6600 (non-XT) at some point, and if the latest rumors... Read more...
Earlier this year, AMD confirmed that Samsung's next-generation Exynos mobile SoCs would incorporate its RDNA 2 graphics technology. At the time, AMD said that the RDNA 2 intellectual property leveraged by the new Exynos family would "[bring] ray tracing and variable rate shading capabilities to flagship mobile... Read more...
If you were eagerly anticipating that Microsoft might include a refreshed Arm-based model among its next-generation Surface announcements last week, you would have been disappointed when it didn't happen. Microsoft did introduce a Surface Pro 8 and Surface Duo 2, both with x86 hardware inside, but nothing that flexes... Read more...
As we highlighted in our Radeon RX 6900 XT review, AMD's flagship graphics card is worthy of the designation, coming within striking distance of NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 3090 in traditional rasterization (the gap widens in ray-traced gaming) at a lower MSRP. So it would be quite remarkable if, as some alleged... Read more...
