Several Ryzen 4000G “Renoir” APUs, alongside other SKUs, have been spotted around the digital town already this month. Enthusiasts and outlets have already reported on engineering samples for the Renoir and Vermeer chipsets that have quite a nice bump in performance for lower-end systems. This newly revealed batch of APUs looks very promising. This new
Ryzen is about to get another mid-generation refresh from AMD, according to some interesting new leaks. New rumors suggest that two new SKUs, the Ryzen 2 3750X and 3850X, will be coming soon. The new leaks have been reported by Videocardz, showing that AMD is serious about taking on Intel across the board. The leaks are
Igor’s Lab has seemingly uncovered something huge for both AMD fans and those that love bleeding-edge hardware in their PCs. The new Ryzen 4000-series CPUs have a codename now. These are the Vermeer CPU and Renoir CPU lines according to details obtained by the outlet. The samples seen in the wild appear to be early
The announcement that the Zen 3 CPUs would be moved off of the aging 400-series motherboard chipsets was met with a lot of resistance. Two weeks ago AMD announced that that the next-generation of Zen CPU architecture would require a newer 500-series chipset instead. Now, just a short while later, AMD has reversed that decision.
There has been a big effort by AMD to offer something that has made a lot of PC gamer happy. Through microcode updates and BIOS tweaks, AMD has ensured that their current lot of Zen architecture CPUs had pretty good support for older motherboards. The Ryzen generations up to the current year with the 3000-series
ASRock has released a statement concerning the new CometLake CPUs from Intel that will be good news for some users. The B460/H470 chipsets will be getting some support for overclocking with certain Intel CPUs via a microcode change. This will even allow users to apply some overclocking to locked CPUs on any non-Z compatible motherboard.
AMD has announced a pretty great plan for users on a budget. The Ryzen 3 CPUs, notably the quad-core Ryzen 3 1200, is being updated to a 12nm architecture in lieu of the 14nm versions of the CPU. AMD has already offered a similar refresh for the hex-core Ryzen 5 1600, so this seemed a
AMD is pushing a ton of competitive measures in 2020 to help shore up its efforts against rival Intel. AMD has been spring big wins against Intel these last couple of years. The advent of Ryzen series of processors has led to a big gain in market share and profit for AMD. AMD’s Zen 3
CPU vulnerabilities have been a rather common sight these last few years. With both Intel and AMD having been affected by a variety of security issues over the years, there’s no real surprise that the manufacturers have now been victimized by more vulnerabilities recently. So let’s run through the various vulnerabilities and the CPUs they
AMD has made a roaring come back into the CPU and GPU game over the last couple of years. This can be seen no clearer than with their financial results over the last two quarters. recently revealed its Q4 2019 sales numbers during its fiscal year reporting for 2019. In short, AMD is in the strongest
Intel’s 10th generation desktop CPUs are here. And based on newly leaked screenshots of the spec sheet, Intel is pushing hard on memory and storage performance. With the i9 10900K and i7 10700K, Intel will be pushing more and more processing cores and more memory bandwidth into the next generation of chips. Not only will
AMD has announced a slew of new products in their Threadripper lines, much to the delight of system builders, overclockers and other enthusiasts. These two new CPUs cap off the Zen-2 powered offerings from the red team, showing off higher core counts and high speeds. And of course, they have a pretty high price tag.
Researchers at Bitdefender have uncovered a new suite of vulnerabilities that would allow attackers to leak private data from CPUs, thus gaining access to credentials and other personal information. The new vulnerability is what’s called a side-channel attack, which would allow an attacker to gain access to otherwise protected data through non-standard means. So rather
If you’re in the process of prepping a build for the newest Ryzen2 CPUs, or have already bought some of your parts, namely the CPU and motherboard, then you’re in for a bit of good or bad news depending on what your situation is. The launch of the new 3rd gen processors has left a
With the upcoming launch of AMD’s newest CPU architecture, the Zen2 line, which features a variety of new and powerful processors, many of which apparently offer better price compared to overall performance. And in a rather lengthy internal memo Intel lays out all the analysis of AMD and their new attempts to break away a
The newest line of AMD CPUs have finally been announced, gamers rejoice! The new 7nm CPU SKUs will make up the initial offerings of the third generation of Ryzen, offering increased clock speeds and improved performance. AMD will release three products in the initial lineup, the AMD Ryzen 3700X, the Ryzen 3800X and the Ryzen
A new vulnerability called SPOILER has been revealed which affects Intel CPUs, and has massive potential to undermine existing hardware security. The new vulnerability was revealed through research from specialists and researchers at Worcester Polytechnic Institute and the University of Lübeck, and published in a research paper distributed this month through pre-print service ArXiv, “SPOILER:
AMD is really working hard to retake some of its lost ground from Intel in the CPU game, and they’re not slowing down either. This week, AMD have posted information and some details for several new SKUs within their Ryzen 2 product lines, as well as new Raven Ridge APUs, there’s even a new version
Microsoft have temporarily stopped distributing certain security updates for the Spectre class of exploits targeting CPU hardware. Citing reports from some Windows users that their AMD hardware is having issues with these patches, Microsoft has paused a variety of individual updates and Rollups until they fix the underlying problems. Microsoft issued a statement to clarify
The sky has officially fallen and you should be on the lookout for low-flying swine. Because AMD and Intel are working together.
