ASRock AB350 Gaming K4 AMD AM4 Motherboard Review
     Fri, May 19 2017 | 1:50P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD Ryzen had an amazing launch, because the new AMD processors promises a very good price / performance ratio. Right there, also ASRock would apply with this inexpensive Fatal1ty AB350 Gaming K4 motherboard, which we are testing on OCinside.de, today. In this ASRock AB350 Gaming K4 AMD AM4 review we will test and overclock the motherboard both with an AMD Ryzen 5 1600 CPU, as well with an AMD Ryzen 7 1800X CPU. We will also give a few AMD Ryzen OC tips and show some interesting infrared thermal images of the system along with the chipset and voltage regulators.

Intel looking to bundle motherboard and memory to promote Kaby Lake
     Thu, May 18 2017 | 3:04P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Because of weak demand in the PC DIY market, Intel is considering bundling its Optane memory with motherboards using 200 series chipsets such as Z270, in the PC DIY channel to stimulate demand for the Kaby Lake platform. However, some retailers are pessimistic about the idea since the next-generation Coffee Lake is set to become available in late August and consumers are waiting for the new products.

AMD ramping shipments of Ryzen 7, Ryzen 5 CPUs
     Wed, May 17 2017 | 5:16P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Demand for AMD's Ryzen 7- and Ryzen 5-series CPU products has continued rising, which may allow the chipmaker to narrow its losses to below US$50 million for the second quarter of 2017. With Intel also paying licensing fees to AMD for its GPUs, some market watchers believe AMD may turn profitable in the second quarter or in the third.

2017 has been a busy year for AMD and we’ve already had the release and reviews of many of their new CPUs. Of course, the Ryzen R7 1700, Ryzen R7 1700X, and the Ryzen R7 1800X certainly left us impressed. Also, their mid-budget Ryzen R5 1600X and 1500X offered incredible price vs. performance ratios. However, today we’re taking a look at their most affordable R5 series CPU to date; the Ryzen R5 1400.

AMD Ryzen 5 1600 3.2 GHz
     Wed, May 17 2017 | 5:11P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD's Ryzen 5 1600 is a six-core processor with twelve logical cores, which turns out to be a cost-effective alternative to the Ryzen 5 1600X, which is only marginally faster. The 1600 also offers good overclocking potential, going beyond the clock limits of AMD Precision Boost and XFR.

AMD R5 1600X 6-Core and R5 1500X 4-Core AM4 CPU Review
     Sat, May 13 2017 | 9:01A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The sub-$250 CPU price point is the sweet spot where most system builders look at for their next CPU choice. In this area, creators, gamers and casual system builders intersect and overlap with their computing needs. Intel's 4-core/4-threaded i5 processors have been unchallenged in this price point for some time now but AMD plans to disrupt that dominance with the …

AMD's Ryzen 5 CPUs are here. In part one of our review, we go Inside the Second to see whether the Ryzen 5 1600X and Ryzen 5 1500X can hang with Intel's most powerful Core i5 CPUs when we ask them to feed a powerful graphics card.

AMD Ryzen 5 1600X & 1500X Processor
     Fri, May 12 2017 | 9:00A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Here we are at the end of Ryzen Part Deux and I have to say that, for the most part, scaling the architecture down does hit on some performance points. As you might expect, the results to show and prove that dropping the core count by 50% on the Ryzen 1500X did reduce performance in multi-threaded benchmarks by close to 50%. No real surprise there since 50% of the core count should equate to roughly 50% of the performance of a similarly clocked Ryzen processor. No real surprises are to be had either when you look at the R5 1600X. It fits that sweet spot right between the R5 1500X and R7 1700 perfectly as a six-core / 12 thread part. The IPC improvements with AMD's Ryzen architecture allow these two lower core count Ryzen 5 offerings to stay ahead of AMD's previous powerhouse, the FX 9590 that is clocked 1.1GHz higher than the R5 1500X right out of the box. The added core count of the R5 1600X pushes that performance envelope higher so that it's more competitive with the Intel product stack in our benchmarks.”

A broken or cracked LCD screen makes a laptop utterly useless, good thing PCSTATS can show you how to replace that busted laptop screen with a minimum of fuss and for less money than a service center charges. PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
