One big change this year that contributes to the 5000 series’ better performance is AMD’s move to more cores on the processor, according to Eurogramer. During the company’s presentation, we reported that AMD Chief Technology Officer Mark Papermaster said that Zen 3 is designed on a new unified eight-core complex that allows each core to have access to the L3 memory cache, which helps to reduce any latency and bottlenecks. In sum, the chip’s new design brings a 19% uplift over Zen 2, better power efficiency, and improved single-core performance, AMD CEO Lisa Su added. … [Read more...] about AMD Ryzen 5000 reviews are in, and Intel’s gaming advantage is wiped out

The Velocita follows a pretty standard ATX layout, packing an AM4 socket at its heart, wired to four DDR4 memory slots with support for up to DDR4 5000. In the lower half you'll find two PCI-Express 4.0 x16 slots, which will run in 8x if both are occupied or the full 16 lanes if only using the top slot. Being a speed-focused board, ASRock equipped the board with a lavish 14-phase VRM circuit to power the CPU, claiming 'unmatched overclocking capabilities' in its exciting promo video. … [Read more...] about ASRock Launches X570 PG Velocita!

While the Ryzen 7 4700U is indeed an octa-core chip, the chip lacks simultaneous multi-threading (SMT). The Ryzen 7 4800U, on the other hand, comes with a eight-cores, 16-thread design, therefore, the Ryzen 7 5700U is closer to the Ryzen 7 4800U than the Ryzen 7 4700U. It's interesting though that AMD seemingly decided to unlock the full configuration on the Ryzen 7 5700U. … [Read more...] about AMD Ryzen 7 5700U Materializes In New Benchmark
Zen 3 is the AM4 swan song everyone wanted Since the launch of the first-generation Ryzen CPUs, AMD has been clawing back performance and mind share from Intel’s previously commanding lead. Where it managed to steal the productivity top spot relatively easily, single threaded and gaming performance has taken far more effort. It’s somewhat poetic that on the last AM4 CPU, AMD finally managed to take the crown in just about every category. The Ryzen 9 5900X is a generation-defining CPU, and though expensive, represents one of the most exciting CPUs ever made. … [Read more...] about AMD Ryzen 5900X vs. Intel Core i9 10900K: Revenge of the underdog?
You also need to factor in the price of the motherboard. Intel Core i9-10900K requires a new 400-series motherboard, and the wise move is to plump for the Z490 chipset, which means you will likely be spending $300-$400. AMD Ryzen CPUs continue to use Socket AM4, so you might be able to use an existing X370 or X470 board with your Ryzen 9 3950X. You will need to check the manufacturer’s website for BIOS support, and you should only consider this move if the motherboard is a high-end model that can support such a mighty CPU — but the fact of the matter is that you do have this option. Alternatively, you need to budget for a new B550 or X570 motherboard, which will cost plenty but which should save you $50 or $100 over an Intel Z490 motherboard. … [Read more...] about Intel Core i9-10900K vs. AMD Ryzen 9 3950X
