AMD's next round of server processors are going to be EPYC beasts, if recently leaked documents end up being legitimate. These supposedly official documents outline some of the characteristics of AMD's next-gen EPYC processors based on its upcoming Zen 4 architecture, including the SP5 socket design they will slip...

The end of the road for AMD's current AM4 socket is finally afoot, with an AM5 socket being prepped for the eventual release of Zen 4. Kudos to AMD for sticking with AM4 for so long. As Zen 4 comes into view, however, more attention will be paid to the upcoming socket, and as such, some nifty AM5 renders are making... Read more...
Most people would agree that AMD has done a fantastic job under the guidance of Dr. Lisa Su, who navigated the company into Zen and RDNA waters, the two major architectures that underpin its modern CPUs and GPUs. Having once again established itself as a relevant force in the high-end space, AMD is looking to keep the... Read more...
AMD has been somewhat aggressive in pushing more cores and threads into the consumer segment. As it stands, the technically 'mainstream' Ryzen 9 5950X serves up a generous 16 cores and 32 threads, which not too long ago was the exclusive domain of high end desktop (HEDT) silicon like Threadripper and server silicon...

Bergamo is a city in Italy, located northeast of Milan. It might also be the codename for an upcoming 128-core/256-thread EPYC server processor based on AMD's Zen 4 architecture, if the latest rumor is to be believed. If true, the chip would represent a spirited attempt by AMD to claim more data center market share... Read more...
AMD has been on a hot streak in the processor market since it introduced its first-generation Zen architecture in 2017. Its most recent iteration, Zen 3, is available across consumer (Ryzen), workstation (Threadripper), and enterprise (EPYC) product families, topping out at 64 cores for the latter two. AMD has...

AMD made quite the splash during its keynote at Computex 2021. In addition to launching a new Radeon RX 6000M mobile series based on its RDNA 2 graphics architecture, the biggest surprise came in regards to its processors, and not just what it had to say about Zen 4. AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su revealed a new stacked 3D... Read more...
As we fast approach the launch of Intel's 12th generation Alder Lake-S desktop processor platform, memory manufacturers are becoming a bit more comfortable talking about their DDR5 product portfolio. One such company is XPG, which today announced its new Caster DDR5 memory family, which will launch during Q3... Read more...
AMD and Intel are in a dogfight in the CPU space, both for the performance crown and market share. It actually was not much of fight before Zen arrived a few years ago. As we look ahead to Zen 4, AMD is highly competitive again (reminiscent of the early Athlon 64 days, but even more so now), and could maintain the... Read more...
Much has been made of next-generation platforms on the horizon from AMD and Intel. Both are planning to embrace DDR5 memory, the former with its Zen 4 platform and the latter with Alder Lake-S. Along with supporting new features and technologies. Zen 4 and Alder Lake-S will introduce new socket designs, and leaked... Read more...
There are some potentially exciting processor launches coming up later this year (Alder Lake-S) and presumably early next year (Zen 4). Next-gen platforms from AMD and Intel will bring some new and upgraded technologies to the forefront, and as it applies to the former, some information about its upcoming AM5 platform... Read more...
Little by little, online leakers are revealing AMD's supposed processor roadmap for its various product lines, including desktop and laptop chips. None of the leaked information is actually confirmed—AMD has not talked a whole lot about its future products—but it is interesting to analyze all the same. Speaking of... Read more...
Earlier this week, Samsung touted its development of next-generation 512GB DDR5 modules rated for 7200 Mbps speeds. TeamGroup is grabbing some headlines of its own today with some announcements from its T-Force Gaming brand. According to TeamGroup, it has already validated its first standard DDR5 U-DIMM and SO-DIMM... Read more...
No matter what kind of pricing proposition AMD brought to the server sector or how many cores and threads it offered up, Intel could always play the AVX-512 card, touting superior performance in very specific workloads that leverage that instruction set. Perhaps not for long, though. Rumor has it AMD's EPYC 7004... Read more...
AMD has not yet released its fourth generation EPYC "Milan" server processors based on its Zen 3 CPU architecture, but barring any last minute snags, those chips are coming any day now. Looking further down the road, a new leak highlights a possible fourth generation EPYC "Genoa" configuration based on Zen 4, with... Read more...
Sure, there are many PC users out there pining for a hard-to-find AMD Ryzen 5000 series desktop CPU to build a new system around, and on the mobile front, AMD's latest generation Zen 3 stack is brand new as well. But even so, the rumor mill remains in full swing regarding what sits further down the road. Specifically... Read more...
AMD is on one heck of a run with its Zen architecture. The company really hit its stride with Zen 2 (Ryzen 3000 series on the desktop), which helped the company steal market share away from Intel and, just as importantly, gain mind share with enthusiasts. Zen 3 is even better (albeit in short supply at the moment)... Read more...
AMD is in the midst of one heck of a run. Remember the company's Bulldozer architecture?
