  1. Yesterday I spent two hours listening to the CEOs of rival companies talk trash about each other. It reminded me of my parents right after their divorce. Nvidia was shit talking AMD, and AMD politely responded with just enough bite for you to take notice. Jensen Huang at Nvidia’s 2019 CES press conference. Yesterday, AMD announced a new graphics card, the $700 Radeon VII, based on its second-generation Vega architecture. The GPU is the first one available to consumers based on the 7nm process. Smaller processes tend to be faster and more energy efficient, which mea
  2. AMD recently overhauled its Radeon Software driver series with the initial Adrenalin 2019 Edition update, which offered Radeon graphics card owners a host of upgrades and improvements. That was last week. This week, AMD rolled out a minor update that builds upon the initial release with a bunch of bug fixes. The new Radeon Software Adrenalin 2019 Edition 18.12.3 driver package is listed as an "optional" download, which essentially means it doesn't offer any game-specific performance improvements. However, it does address a memory clock issue that some Radeon RX Vega owners have been exper

  4. Six or nine months from now, AMD and Intel might be posting results and/or guidance that look very different from the numbers that the companies recently delivered. However, that's cold comfort for AMD investors who have seen the company's shares drop 22% over the two days following the release of its Q3 report. Or for that matter, anyone who was short Intel as its stock -- aided by the release of an upbeat Q3 report on Thursday afternoon -- rose nearly 8% during the same time. To recap, AMD posted mixed Q3 results on Wednesday afternoon -- revenue slightl
  5. Mark Coppock/Digital Trends “Intel Inside” is a badge of honor few laptops go without. If you’ve been searching for a new notebook, and in particular one that can let you game on the go, then chances are you haven’t even considered buying a machine with AMD inside. Intel dominates mobile processors, as does Nvidia for discrete mobile GPUs. You’ll need to search long and hard to even find an alternative. But what if you want to support the underdog? Well, it is possible to find a laptop using AMD’s latest Ryzen CPUs and Radeon GPUs. We found one that looked quite promising, t
  6. Intel looking to tackle Ryzen 3 with cheaper, GPU-less chips? With the launch of AMD's hotly-anticipated Ryzen 3rd Generation processors just around the corner – the new CPUs are expected to be officially unveiled this Wednesday, January 9 at AMD's CES 2019 conference – Intel has today used its CES event to finally announce it's adding six more 9th-gen Core processors, ranging from Core i3 to Core i9, set to release soon. The new processors join the company's three existing 'flagship' 9th-generation desktop chips, which launched in October last year – the Core i5-9600K, i7
  7. This last year has been a bizarre one in the world of PC components. AMD, Intel and Nvidia have all launched major product lines that ruled their prospective portions of the market – at least for a little while. AMD launched its Ryzen and Threadripper 2nd Generation lineups, which brought about fantastic performance at a bargain price, while Nvidia launched Turing and the best graphics cards we’ve ever seen. And, Intel? Well, Intel released four different microarchitectures to varying degrees of success. But, what will 2019 look like? As all of these manufacturers mobilize to

    AMD Radeon Vega II = VII = 7 (nm)

    Some say that Radeon VII took everyone by surprise, others think it was imminent. The reality is that AMD is not abandoning high-performance graphics just yet, as the company is still planning to compete with NVIDIA Turing. AMD Radeon VII featuring 7nm Vega architecture comes with 3840 Stream Processors, which means that the GPU does not have all cores enabled. To justify the cost, the full chip is likely reserved for Radeon Pro/Instinct series. Unless AMD is still planning to introduce the full GPU for gaming, we simply don’t know yet. What we have learned from AMD presentation is th
  9. Is AMD getting ready to make a big mistake? AMD has been enjoying one success after another lately, across its entire range of silicon. But this could be about to change. AMD is a company that has turned itself around over the past few years. It's gone from being a total underdog in the processor space to having huge wins on the desktop, mobile, and server spaces. It's also made huge strides into high-performance silicon, satisfying gamers and those with a thirst for ultimate performance. But things m
  10. AMD is striking well over the past month with their Linux hardware bring-up. In the past month we've seen the Navi 10/12/14 support get in order for Linux as well as support for the future Vega-based Arcturus GPU and now we see the initial enablement patches for their next-generation APUs, Renoir. Sent out today was the initial 27 patches amount to around two thousand lines of code (roughly half of which is just header files) for bringing up this next-gen AMD APU. Renoir is the successor to current AMD Picasso APUs and are said to be based on the new Zen 2 archite
  11. Intel will reportedly ease up its entry-level processor stock squeeze in June, industry sources say. Intel has been focusing its efforts on high-performance and server-grade CPUs since late 2018 due to manufacturing constraints hitting its 14nm process node. But that policy looks to be coming to an end. Notebook clients were reportedly informed that the entry-level processor shortfall with drastically decrease from June onward, significantly reducing the CPU deficit and easing up the pressure on OEMs and system builders. This should increase notebook shipments in the second half o

AMD AMD and Cray have announced that they're building "Frontier," a new supercomputer for the Department of Energy at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. The goal is to deliver a system that can perform 1.5 exaflops: 1.5×1018 floating point operations per second. By way of comparison, a single Nvidi
  13. Ever since AMD released the Zen-based Ryzen CPUs, their fortunes have overturned. The company sent rival Intel into a panic, resulting in price cuts and unplanned product launches that made a mess of their product lineup. But before Ryzen, things weren’t so “green” for AMD. The infamous Bulldozer architecture and its reiterations in the form of Steamroller, and Excavator were far from successful. On the other hand, Intel’s Core architecture and its successors kept on building a formidable lead over team red’s processors. This finally resulted in the pre-Ryzen scene where octa-core AMD CPUs wer

The large chip in the middle is the 14nm I/O chip; around it are pairs of 7nm chiplets containing the CPU cores. AMD In its earnings call, AMD offered a little more detail about the launch of its next-generation processors, built using the Zen 2 architecture and TSMC's 7nm manufacturing process, and new GPU architecture, Navi, again built on 7nm. Server-oriented EPYC-branded chips (codenamed Rome) should be shipping to cus
  15. One of the legends in the gaming hardware community is leaving his current post and is taking up a new position at AMD. That person is none other than Frank Azor, who was one of the co-founders of Alienware and most recently served as Vice President and General Manager for Dell's XPS, G Series and Alienware gaming brands. Given that gaming is in his blood, it should come as no surprise that Azor will take on the title of Chief Gaming Officer at AMD. In his new position, he will be reporting to Sandeep Chennakeshu, who serves as AMD's Executive Vice President of Computing and Graphics.
  16. Vulnerability in AMD’s Secure Encrypted Virtualization for EPYC: Update Now to Build 22 One of the key elements of building a processor is that designing a secure product involves reducing the ‘attack surface’ as much as possible: the fewer ways an attack can get in, the safer your product is. For the white knights of the security world, when a vulnerability is found, the process usually goes through a period of reasonable disclosure, i.e. the issue is presented to the company, and they are often given a certain time to fix the issue (to help customers) before the full
  17. For those wondering how the performance compares of AMD's new Zen 2 processors between Windows 10 and Linux, here are our initial benchmarks across dozens of benchmarks for the AMD Ryzen 9 3900X on Windows 10 Pro 1903 against Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS. This is the first of surely several Windows vs. Linux performance comparisons to come of these new AMD Zen 2 processors. In this article is just Windows 10 against Ubuntu 18.04 LTS since the ASUS has yet to ship the new BIOS for the ROG CROSSHAIR VIII HERO WiFi to allow newer (non-patched) Linux distributions to boot without pr
  18. A great deal or were consumers Bulldozed by the chip giant? AMD has agreed to pay purchasers of its FX Bulldozer processors a total of $12.1m to settle a four-year false advertising lawsuit. Considering the number of processors sold and assuming a 20 per cent take-up by eligible purchasers, that works out to $35 a chip, the preliminary agreement argues: a figure that is “significantly more than 50 per cent of the value of their certified claims had they prevailed at trial.” It’s a good deal, the agreement [PDF] explains, because of the “risks an
  19. Back on the AMD EPYC 7002 "Rome" launch day I wrote about how AMD is working to return to open-source BIOS / Coreboot support and now there's further confirmation of their work in that direction. We were tipped off today that AMD's Head of Platform Firmware, Edward Benyukhis, publicly posted on LinkedIn that he is "looking to hire someone with solid Coreboot and UEFI background." If you have Coreboot experience or know someone who is, see LinkedIn for contacting Benyukhis. That's exciting itself and certainly noteworthy, but also notable is AMD is now sponsoring n
  20. AMD previews Radeon RX5000 series GPU based on new Navi architecture AMD rocked Computex 2019 with the first official details on its next-generation graphics cards, the Radeon 5000 series. What you need to know AMD previewed its next-generation graphics chips, based on its "Navi" architecture at Computex 2019. Called the Radeon RX5000 series, the graphics card lineup is named for AMD's 50th anniversary. The Radeon RX5000 series includes a ton of performance improvements over the previous Vega ge
  21. (Reuters) - Chipmaker Advanced Micro Devices announced a multi-year partnership with Samsung Electronics Co Ltd for the development of mobile graphics techology based on its AMD Radeon graphics chips. AMD will license its custom graphics intellectual property (IP) to Samsung for use in mobile devices, including smartphones, and other products while Samsung will pay AMD technology license fees and royalties. Shares of AMD rose 4% in premarket trading. Source

AMD Computex slide deck AMD's new line of Ryzen 3000 desktop CPUs will benefit from the same 7nm manufacturing process as the company's new Navi-powered GPUs. Much of the tech community's hype is for the biggest and baddest of the bunch: the 16-core, 32-thread Ryzen 9 3950x. But there's an entire
  23. AMD launches Navi as the $449 Radeon RX 5700 XT AMD claims performance-per-dollar leadership over Nvidia, but for how long? AMD took the stage at E3 to announce its "Navi" family of GPUs. The company's new graphics cards are officially the AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT and Radeon RX 5700. The 5700 series is launching July 7, making the GPUs a one-two punch alongside AMD's Ryzen 3000 series CPUs. AMD isn't tackling the flagship GPU market with the 5700 series. Instead, the company is aiming for more mainstream pricing with mainstream performance: the 5700XT is $449, while the 5
  24. Windows 10 May 2019 Update brings AMD performance boost AMD-powered PCs get an upgrade Image credit: Shutterstock The Windows 10 May 2019 Update has brought some great new features to Windows 10, but perhaps the best change is one that didn’t get much fanfare – as AMD-powered PCs will now perform better with the update installed. This is because Windows 10 version 1903 – also known as the May 2019 Update – changes how the Windows scheduler tool works with AMD hardware. Previously, the Windows scheduler was causing issues that impacted the per
