Last month, AMD made the 3rd Generation Ryzen 3000XT series processors official after weeks of leaks and speculation. In case you missed the original announcement, Ryzen 3000XT series processors are tweaked versions of the original 3000X series products, but with higher clocks and the ability to maintain turbo frequencies longer, to boost...

AMD maintains a whole bunch of different Ryzen processor lines, spread out across both mobile and desktop. As it applies to the latter, we are still waiting for AMD to officially launch its Ryzen 4000 Pro series combining Zen 2 CPU cores with enhanced Vega graphics. They are basically APUs, a term AMD does not use... Read more...
Then it comes to HEDT processors available on the market right now, there's the AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3990X; and then there's everybody else. The processor's claim to fame is that it's based on AMD's versatile 7nm Zen 2 architecture, decked out with 64 physical cores and 128 threads for multi-threaded... Read more...
The Zen 2 CPU architecture has been kind to AMD, and to customers as well, who have many options in the Zen 2 space. That includes the launch of refreshed "XT" processors that will go on sale in July: Ryzen 9 3900XT, Ryzen 7 3800XT, and Ryzen 5 3600XT. Those are not the only new Zen 2 parts bound for the desktop...

AMD has had a remarkable run with its Zen 2 architecture for the mainstream market, starting first with the Ryzen 3000 desktop processors, and more recently with the Ryzen 4000 APUs for laptops. Given that Ryzen 3000 processors have been on the market for nearly a year now, pricing is more affordable than ever before... Read more...
AMD’s Ryzen Threadripper 3990X isn’t for everyone, but it is no doubt an impressive piece of silicon that doesn’t really have a rival in the High-End Desktop (HEDT) market. The processor comes with an MSRP of $3,990, which is well beyond the budget of most enthusiasts out there that are used to paying a few hundred... Read more...
Are you getting ready to build a new PC? If so, check out this latest deal on AMD's Ryzen 5 3600. It is an excellent processor based on AMD's latest generation Zen 2 CPU architecture, and it is on sale at Amazon for $167. That nearly matches the lowest price it has ever been (outside of buying it used), and is a heck... Read more...
It appears that the cat is completely out of the bag in regards to AMD's upcoming Matisse Refresh processors. Over the past week, we've learned quite a lot about these processors, and it seems as though AMD had been planning this move all along as a counterattack to Intel's Comet Lake-S family of processors that just...

What began as a trickle of information on AMD’s upcoming new processors is now turning into a flood. We first heard reports that AMD would release two new Zen 2 "Matisse Refresh" processors on Friday, and by Saturday, that number had grown to three new processors: the Ryzen 5 3600XT, Ryzen 7 3800XT, and the Ryzen 9...

Yesterday, we reported on a rumor that indicated that AMD was working on new "Matisse Refresh" processors that would launch in June alongside the new B550 motherboards. According to that thin rumor, AMD was working on a Ryzen 7 3750X and Ryzen 7 3850X. We're now getting some additional clarity thanks to a new... Read more...
Intel officially launched its 10th generation Comet Lake-S desktop processor family earlier this week, and the chips deliver some strong performance with some equally voracious power consumption – especially with respect to the flagship Core i9-10900K. AMD has not been sitting idle, however, and we reported yesterday... Read more...
The wait is on for AMD to refresh its desktop APU (accelerated processing unit) lineup. Or as AMD likes to say these days, "Ryzen Processors with Radeon Vega Graphics," because apparently "APU" is out of style. Call it whatever you want, a new leak just highlighted what looks to be the entire stack of AMD's next... Read more...
AMD came out swinging when it debuted its Ryzen 4000 Zen 2 processors, which represent the company’s latest salvo against Intel in the laptop market. Not only do these mobile “Renoir”  processors have excellent performance with up to 8 cores and 16 threads, but their 7nm process tech has enabled incredibly power... Read more...
It stands to reason that at some point, AMD will introduce a new round of desktop processors based on its Zen 2 CPU architecture, with onboard Radeon graphics. Essentially an APU (accelerated processing unit), even though AMD does not use that term these days. Perhaps one of those upcoming chips, the Ryzen 7 4700G... Read more...
There's a lot movement in the AMD camp these days with respect to its processors. Just this week, we gave you a performance review of the Ryzen 3 3100 and Ryzen 3 3300X processors and they'll likely be paired up with budget-minded B550 motherboards. And there’s word that Renoir-based Ryzen 4000 APUs are right around... Read more...
Back in early March, which seems like ages ago considering the past two months we’ve gone through, we received our first glimpse at AMD’s upcoming Renoir-based Ryzen 4000 (Zen 2) desktop processors. As you might expect, these processors are cut from the same cloth as AMD’s Ryzen 4000 mobile processors and feature... Read more...
AMD announced a pair of new Ryzen 3 processors a couple of weeks back, designed to drive its Zen 2 microarchitecture down into even more affordable price points. These new processors, the Ryzen 3 3100 and Ryzen 3 3300X, are the latest entry-level, quad-core processors in the Ryzen family. Over and above disabling a few cores and tweaking clocks,...

Late last month, AMD officially announced the newest members of the Zen 2 desktop processor family: the Ryzen 3 3100 and Ryzen 3 3300X. Both are 4-core/8-thread processors, and like their other Ryzen 3000 counterparts (save for the APUs) lack integrated Radeon graphics. The value leader of the two is no doubt the... Read more...
AMD’s Ryzen 3000 family of processors has been around since July 2019, and at the time included the Ryzen 5 3600 at the low-end and the Ryzen 9 3900X at the top of the heap (which was later eclipsed by the Ryzen 9 3950X). Today, AMD is expanding its lineup at the entry-level position with two new desktop processors... Read more...
