It's only been a few days since AMD announced its new 3D V-Cache Zen 4 Chips at CES 2023 this year. Perhaps in concert with that announcement, and some signals from China, prices are apparently beginning to fall here in the US as well for the just-released Ryzen 7000-series of AMD CPUs, including the top-of-the-line...

If you haven't gotten a chance to put hands on one, Valve's Steam Deck is a pretty cool gaming device that has become wildly popular. It has its faults, though—its haptics rumble is weak, its display is lack-luster, and there's only one USB port on board. As such, OneXPlayer likely hopes that you may find those... Read more...
There's an entire mainstream market beyond the powerful AMD Ryzen and Intel Core processors that PC enthusiasts love so dearly. In fact, there's a ton of unit volume shipped below $700-800 baseline for laptops sporting premium, performance-targeted CPUs. And to serve this space, AMD has three new Ryzen and Athlon CPUs...

New AMD processors are just around the corner, and we cannot wait to get on hands with the new Zen 4 SKUs shown in August. In the meantime, though, we will have to settle for the plethora of leaks and snippets of information we can get our hands on, such as the latest leaked AMD Ryzen 9 7900X Geekbench scores, which...

Seemingly as per tradition, a retailer has slipped up and posted detailed product information ahead of an official launch. This time around, PC Canada mistakenly pushed out listings for several of AMD’s upcoming Zen 4 CPUs. These processors are not expected to be formally unveiled until later this month with...

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...
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...
Did you or someone you know build an AMD Ryzen machine only to be frustrated by strange stuttering issues? These problems have always existed in certain Ryzen systems, but only with the release of Windows 11 did the issue come to the forefront, because Windows 11 mandates the use of a Trusted Platform Module...

More recently, we had the chance to evaluate the excellent... Read more...
AMD has been working on its 3D chiplet technology for quite some time now, but it was back at Computex last year that the company initially showed off its 3D V-Cache in a consumer processor, targeted squarely at gamers. Though the chip AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su held up on stage was somewhat different than the Ryzen 7 5800X3D we’ll be showing... Read more...
It was recently discovered that the AMD Software (formerly Radeon Software) driver utility is secretly changing CPU parameters in the BIOS on some PCs. This isn't some sinister play on AMD's part, but an apparent driver bug. AMD confirmed as much in a statement, saying it is "aware of an issue in the AMD software... Read more...
Do you have a PC that's powered by both a Ryzen CPU and a Radeon GPU? We'd reckon that this combination is pretty common these days, particularly given AMD's marketing around its Smart Access Memory feature. If you do, you may (or may not) have noticed that your CPU is running hotter and faster than usual, or perhaps... Read more...
AMD has been riding high since the release of its first Ryzen 5000 Series desktop processors back in late in 2020.

Once again, Intel ended another year (2021) with the highest overall CPU market share and retained its lead in each individual category (desktop, mobile, and server). But as has been the case since AMD introduced its original Zen architecture, the gap continues to tighten. There's still a wide gulf between the two... Read more...
The performance of the just-released Radeon RX 6500 XT may not quite be what people were hoping for from a brand-new graphics card in 2022.
