Ryzen 5 3600 vs. Ryzen 9 3900X vs. Core i9-9900K: GPU Scaling Benchmark
     Tue, Aug 20 2019 | 5:20P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Having tested 3rd-gen Ryzen processors with the RTX 2080 Ti extensively, our idea behind this new feature is to add mainstream and budget GPUs to the mix in a benchmark run that reflects more settings and resolutions gamers will likely use when tuning their PCs for gaming: we've picked the RTX 2070 Super, RX 5700 and Radeon RX 580.

AMD Ryzen 5 3600X Processor Review
     Fri, Aug 16 2019 | 9:02A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"When AMD launched the Ryzen 3000 series we were able to get our hands on both the Ryzen 9 3900X and Ryzen 7 3700X. Both of these are very impressive processors, but they have price-tags that could break the bank for many people. So today we are checking out the $199 Ryzen 5 3600X. This by no means is a low-end processor, some might actually consider the 3600X a value at its price-tag. It is a 6-core, 12-thread part with a base clock of 3.8 GHz, max boost clock of 4.4 GHz and 35 MB of AMD GameCache. At $199 it is right in the wheel-house of many people looking to upgrade or build a new system. And with 6-cores and 12-threads it should be able to handle pretty much anything you throw at it. Is this the real star of the Ryzen 3000 series? Read on as we find out!"

AMD Ryzen 5 3400G (Zen+ & Vega 11) APU Review
     Fri, Aug 16 2019 | 9:00A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Codenamed Picasso and combining a four-core, eight-thread Zen+ CPU with an 11 CU slice of Vega graphics, AMD’s £140 Ryzen 5 3400G is an evolution from the Ryzen 5 2400G of last year. Boosting up to 4.2GHz on the single-CCX CPU component and 1400MHz for the Vega 11 GPU, clock speed increases are the most noteworthy change from last year’s Ryzen 5 2400G. Another important adjustment is the reduction in MSRP by $20, making the Ryzen 5 3400G slightly more affordable. Despite the Ryzen 3000 naming scheme, it is important to remember that the current APUs are not Zen 2 architecture and are fabbed using a 12nm Global Foundries process, not the 7nm TSMC FinFET technology of their CPU brothers. Is £140 for a four-core Zen+ CPU with simultaneous multi-threading, an on-chip Vega 11 GPU, plus the 95W-rated Wraith Spire cooler a solid deal for budget buyers and HTPC gamers?

AMD EPYC 7002 Series Architecture: Doubling Data Center Performance
     Thu, Aug 15 2019 | 9:03A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD has officially taken the wraps off of its second generation EPYC 7002 series processors. The EPYC 7002 series builds upon the success of the original EPYC processors by leveraging the Zen 2 microarchitecture, which is also at the heart of the recently released Ryzen 3000 series desktop parts. EPYC 7002 series processors maintain platform compatibility with existing first-gen EPYC parts, but significantly increase the platform’s capabilities in aggregate and per socket, and introduce a number of new features as well...

AMD Ryzen 7 3700X
     Tue, Aug 13 2019 | 9:01A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Since AMD has supplied the market with new processors and graphics cards in 7nm on 07.07.2019 as promised, we took this opportunity to test an AMD Ryzen 7 3700X on OCinside.de. We also took a look at the included AMD Wraith Prism cooler and explain the new features of the AMD Ryzen 3000 processor series. Whether the smallest 8-core processor of the third Ryzen generation can convince us, if an upgrade is worthwhile in comparison to the first Ryzen generation and how high the AMD Ryzen 7 3700X could be overclocked, we show in the following AMD Ryzen 3000 review.

AMD EPYC 7502 + EPYC 7742 Linux Performance Benchmarks
     Mon, Aug 12 2019 | 9:03A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Now that you have read our AMD EPYC "Rome" 7002 series overview, here is a look at the initial performance benchmarks from our testing over the past few weeks. This testing focused on the new AMD EPYC 7502 and EPYC 7742 processors in both single (1P) and dual (2P) socket configurations using AMD's Daytona server reference platform. Tests were done on Ubuntu Linux and compared to previous AMD EPYC processors as well as Intel Xeon Scalable."

Posted by: STAFF
Vega11 based desktop APUs from AMD are here, in this review we take the Ryzen 5 3400G for a spin. AMD has been going strong with their processors, and now increases their market validity by adding a series of processors that have built-in graphics capabilities, APUs. But is it all that it is cooked up to be?

AMD Ryzen 5 3600 vs. Intel Core i5-9400F: Mainstream Titans Clash
     Thu, Aug 08 2019 | 9:03A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When we reviewed the new Ryzen 5 3600 we had plenty of positive things to say about it, and that was comparing it to the more expensive Core i5-9600K. Now against the 9400F, the cheapest 9th-gen Core i5 processor you can buy at $150. Budget-minded builders may be considering going Intel after all. Does it make sense?

AMD Ryzen 5 3600X (6C12T) CPU Review
     Thu, Aug 01 2019 | 4:00P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Priced squarely to compete with Intel’s Core i5-9600K at the ever-attractive £240 price point, AMD Ryzen 5 3600X continues the Ryzen 5 x600 tradition. That tradition is to offer six cores with Simultaneous Multi-Threading (SMT) doubling the thread count to a dozen. This time, however, those six cores that boost up to 4.4GHz, are based on AMD’s brand-new Zen 2 architecture, and they’re built using TSMC’s leading 7nm FinFET process.

Intel 10th Gen Core i7 Benchmarks: 10nm Ice Lake Performance Explored
     Thu, Aug 01 2019 | 2:59P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Over the last few months, Intel has shown some competitive data to set expectations for 10th Gen Core performance. Santa Clara has extolled the virtues of its updated Sunny Cove microarchitecture, more powerful graphics engine, integrated Thunderbolt 3, Wi-Fi 6 (Gig+), Dynamic Tuning 2.0, and Intel DL Boost for accelerating desktop AI workloads. For more details on all of those technologies, we suggest perusing our Ice Lake architecture article – we cover it all there. In this piece we are not going to be diving too deeply into Ice Lake and its features, but we are finally be able to show you some actual benchmark data, from tests we were able to run ourselves...

New AMD Chipset Drivers Tested on Ryzen 9 3900X
     Thu, Aug 01 2019 | 2:57P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Just a few days ago, AMD commented on the idle clock behavior of their new Zen 2 processors, which has been criticized by many. The company also released a chipset update for mitigation. We thoroughly tested the new version in our application & gaming test suite, using the Ryzen 9 3900X on X570.

AMD Ryzen 5 3600X Review
     Thu, Aug 01 2019 | 2:55P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The AMD Ryzen 5 3600X houses 6 CPU cores and 12 processing threads with a base clock of 3.8GHz and a boost frequency of up to 4.4GHz within optimal conditions, allowing the CPU to remain within a 95W TDP envelope which shouldn’t stress your system cooling too much. Alongside that is 32MB of cache and a 4.0 PCI-E interface with double the bandwidth of the outgoing Gen. 3.0.

Testing Ryzen 9 3900X with SMT On vs. SMT Off
     Wed, Jul 31 2019 | 4:03P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When we compared AMD's Ryzen 9 3900X gaming head to head against the Core i9-9900K we found that the 12-core AMD processor was about 6% slower. We've been requested by readers to retest the 3900X with SMT disabled, essentially turning the 12-core, 24-thread CPU into a 12-core, 12-thread CPU. Many say this can significantly improve gaming performance... but why?

Seagate's GoFlex TV HD is a media player with network connectivity and hard drive dock. The pint-sized black box fits unobtrusively in a living room environment - unlike a full sized Media PC - and the GoFlex TV HD's on screen controls are simple to navigate via the infrared remote control. Full size media PCs often need a keyboard and mouse to be useful, having cooling fans that make a lot of noise and take up too much space...
