AMD Ryzen 5 2500U Raven Ridge Benchmarks Revisited
     Thu, Nov 30 2017 | 6:08P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When we launched our early preview look at AMD Ryzen Mobile performance with the new HP Envy x360 15z laptop last week, we expected it would pull in a few eyeballs. Our benchmark results were likely some of the first anyone had seen that showed what AMD's Ryzen core CPU architecture, coupled with its Radeon RX Vega GPU on the same piece of silicon, could do versus a plethora of Intel 7th and 8th Gen Core series laptops. We wanted to paint a detailed picture of its performance characteristics across various workloads and answer a few other questions a long the way regarding other aspects, like battery life. But in the end, we were left with a few questions as well, after testing the model we picked up at retail, as it was configured "out-of-the-box", so we updated it with an NVMe SSD and re-tested the machine to see how its performance was affected...

AMD Ryzen Mobile Benchmarks And Performance
     Fri, Nov 24 2017 | 8:20P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD Ryzen is set to yet again take on Intel’s dominant position in the market. However, in this latest implementation, Zen is being coupled with AMD’s Vega graphics cores for a fully integrated laptop solution in Ryzen Mobile, with the potential for a significantly more robust multimedia and gaming experience as a result. So what happens when you bring the two together on a single piece of silicon and configure it within the confines of a laptop PC?

4th-Gen Core i7 vs. 8th-Gen Core i7
     Wed, Nov 22 2017 | 4:03P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After our recent feature comparing Intel's 8th-gen Core series against AMD's Ryzen processors, many of you have been asking us to get some older chips into the mix, with particular interest in seeing how Haswell-era processors hold up against Intel's latest offerings. We're also curious to see how well the Core i7-4770K has aged -- we first tested this CPU in June 2013.

AMD's Ryzen series CPUs
     Sat, Nov 11 2017 | 9:02A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Dell leverages AMD's Ryzen series CPUs in the new Inspiron gaming desktop series. The Inspiron 5675 on our test bench comes configured with a AMD Ryzen 5 1400, a reference Radeon RX 580 8GB graphics card, 8GB DDR4 memory, 1TB 7200RPM SATA drive, 802.11ac + Bluetooth 4.1 wireless, 460W PSU, and even some blue case LEDs for around $949 USD. As you can see, it's intended to deliver just enough performance for optimal gaming at 1080p (but no higher), as well as VR-ready performance without breaking the bank.

Ryzen mobile APU
     Fri, Nov 10 2017 | 4:00P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The claims AMD makes about its Ryzen mobile APU (combination CPU+GPU accelerated processing unit, to use an older AMD term) are not to be made lightly. Right up front in our discussion I was told this is going to be the “world’s fastest for ultrathin” machines. Considering that AMD had previously been unable to even enter those markets with previous products, both due to some technological and business roadblocks, AMD is taking a risk by painting this launch in such a light. Thanks to its ability combine CPU and GPU technology on a single die though, AMD has some flexibility today that simply did not have access to previously.

AMD is officially launching a processor family that is internally known at AMD as Raven Ridge, but now will be referred to as Ryzen Mobile. The architecture combines both its new Zen CPU core, along with AMD's RX Vega GPU integrated into a single chip for laptops. There are two initial chips in the mobile processor family that AMD is announcing today: the Ryzen 5 2500U and the Ryzen 7 2700U. Both processors feature four cores capable of executing 8 threads with SMT and integrated RX Vega Graphics...

Intel Core i5-8400 Review
     Mon, Nov 06 2017 | 4:03P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we're checking out the most affordable six-core processor ever released, and this time it's not from AMD. The Core i5-8400 is more affordable than the $215 Ryzen 5 1600, though it can't be overclocked and lacks HyperThreading, but it should nonetheless be ample for gamers and may even be the new go-to solution for budget builders.

Intel Core i5 8600K processor review
     Sat, Nov 04 2017 | 4:02P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We'll review the more mainstream six-core proc from Intel as we put the Core i5 8600K through our benchmark paces. This $257 USD proc is again a six-core processor that you will need to seat on a Z370 chipset based motherboard. While it isn't fitted enabled with hyper-threading, it might however be one sweet gaming processor with its all-core turbo to 4.1 GHz and again it being tweakable to that 5.0 GHz on all six cores.

AMD Ryzen 5 1600 Processor Review
     Thu, Nov 02 2017 | 9:02A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Back when AMD launched their Ryzen 5 processors earlier this year it was the first time we saw a 6-core desktop processor in the mid-range mainstream line. At this time Intel was still on quad-core parts on their Core i7 and Core i5 SKUs. Of course just recently Intel launched their 8th Generation Core desktop processors, which do included both Core i5 and Core i7 6-core SKUs. So it seems the playing field has leveled a bit, with Intel basically being forced to add more cores to their desktop processors to catch up with AMD. So now as buying season is upon us we can give you a clear picture oh how all of the current processors stack up against each other as we just got a Ryzen 5 1600 in to review. This 6-core, 12-thread processor has a base clock of 3.2 GHz and boosts up to 3.6 GHz, it is fully unlocked as well. Let’s get this chip on our test bench and see what it can do!"
