AMD’s Ryzen 7000-series arrival is fast approaching, but not everything is arriving at once. AMD announced the launch last month with the first processors set to arrive September 27th. Only the company’s top end X670 and X670E boards will be available at this time as AMD indicated more affordable B650 and B650E... Read more...
A flurry of benchmark results have recently been unearthed, purportedly from PC systems featuring retail versions of AMD’s yet-to-be-released Ryzen 7 7700X processors. We have both CPU-Z and Geekbench 5 sysinfo reveals, and test results, for the yet to be launched ‘Raphael’ chip. In the tests, the Zen 4 architecture... Read more...
Noctua has shared guidelines for applying its latest NT-H2 thermal paste. Seasoned PC enthusiasts and DIYers might feel they don’t need any thermal paste application guides; however, this guide is one of the first to explain how to apply the grey gloop to AMD’s ‘8-legged’ AM5 socketed Ryzen 7000 CPUs. Many PC... Read more...
AMD just concluded its “together we advance_PCs” livestream event, during which CEO Dr. Lisa Su and other members of the executive team unveiled the company’s launch plans for the upcoming Zen 4-based Ryzen 7000 series and its associated platform. We were lucky enough to be on-hand for the announcements and have... Read more...
An image of a purported AMD Ryzen 7 7700X processor is circulating online. According to prominent tech Twitterati this isn’t an image of a final retail sample of the Zen -based processor. Instead, what we are seeing here is a ‘Qualification Sample’ (QS) chip, which is a significant step forward from the earlier... Read more...
Sometime on Wednesday, AMD’s online product resource library momentarily revealed a quartet of Ryzen 7000 CPUs. Among the CPUs ‘confirmed’ by this lapse were the AMD Ryzen 9 7950X and 7900X, Ryzen 7 7700X, and Ryzen 5 7600X. There were no other codename Raphael reveals, though of course the full range is expected to... Read more...
AMD has prepared a warm-up event ahead of the impending Ryzen 7000 series processor launch. On Friday, August 5, it will be getting together with its most important manufacturing partners to showcase a wide range of AM5 motherboards. The hour long-event should be entertaining enough as top-end reps from ASUS... Read more...
Did you see our post earlier about the purported delays for midrange and high-end GeForce 4000-series cards? Well, not content with laying out release windows for most of the impending hardware that's on the way, Twitter-leakster Greymon55 also had something to say about "Raphael-X". What is that, you may... Read more...
It's astonishing how far CPUs have come in just the last few years. After stagnating at 4 cores while slowly growing single-threaded performance for nearly a decade, mainstream desktop CPUs have seen explosive growth in both single- and multi-core performance recently thanks to renewed competition between Intel and...

AMD is still on track to launch its next-generation Ryzen 7000 processors this fall, which means there are engineering samples out in the wild. It seems an overclocker has taken one of those ES chips (or perhaps even a qualification sample, though that's less likely) and ripped the integrated heat spreader (IHS) off... Read more...
We have a special guest joining us today for our 2.5 Geeks livestream, Robert Hallock, Director of Technical Marketing at AMD. He'll be joining us to discuss everything AMD revealed during its Computex 2022 keynote. That means we'll be prodding for some juicy details Zen 4 and its accompanying 600 series chipsets...

While it's early morning (or late night) here in the US, it's mid-afternoon in Taipei, and AMD just finished up its Computex 2022 keynote. Some of the talk in today's event was a recap of the company's recent releases, such as its Ryzen 6000 series mobile processors and the laptops arriving in market powered by them... Read more...
We've said before that AMD really hit its stride with Zen 3. The Zen architecture as a whole put AMD back in the enthusiast discussion in a big way, and it has continued to make improvements at the silicon level. That is set to continue with Zen 4 due out later this year, and rumor has it the next-gen architecture... Read more...
AMD just disclosed its Q1 financial results and revealed some interesting details regarding future products, including previously unannounced Zen 4-based Dragon Range and Phoenix mobile processors. The latest financial news was all good for AMD, with record revenue and growth across multiple business units. There... Read more...
Hardware enthusiasts will already know, but for anyone who doesn't, the performance of AMD's extant Ryzen platforms is seriously impacted by the transfer rate of the system RAM. It's not actually the memory bandwidth that matters for most tasks; instead, it's because the speed of the "Infinity Fabric" is linked... Read more...
Did you check our review of the Ryzen 7 5800X3D? If you're new to all this PC hardware business, the short version is that AMD took one of its extant Ryzen 7 5800X CPUs, slightly reduced the clock speed, and then bolted on an extra 64 MB of L3 cache by attaching an extra die to the top of the CPU complex, with...

While the conventional wisdom has been that overclocked memory offers minimal performance gains, that's just not the case. Faster memory, whether it increases clock rate, reduces latency, or both, can have a significant effect on system performance. It's most noticeable in apps like video encoding and compression, as...

AMD's next big consumer products will be Zen 4-based Ryzen 7000 series desktop CPUs, as confirmed at CES. Those chips were claimed to arrive in late Q3 of this year, and it looks like they're well on track for that time frame. The latest scuttlebutt seems to indicate that the chips stand on the precipice of mass... Read more...
AMD's next line of desktop processors will be named the Ryzen 7000 series, and they'll be a complete break from Socket AM4 and the previous gen Ryzen platform that it hosts. Ryzen 7000 processors will be based on the Zen 4 CPU architecture and use an LGA socket design rather than the micro-PGA used by Socket... Read more...
AMD has gone on record saying it will launch Zen 4 and its accompanying AM5 socket in the second half of this year, and so far has not been any more specific with the time frame. The general assumption has been that we are looking at a late year release, sometime in the fourth quarter. If that's the case, then those plans may have changed, Read more...
