There is a reason why cooling in our computers is so important. This is because our CPUs and GPUs can run really hot when under intense processing loads, and if temperatures aren’t kept in check, they can get damaged or stop performing optimally. However, in a video uploaded onto YouTube, it seems that someone has figured out a way to leverage an overheating CPU.
The other day it was reported that a new vulnerability for Intel’s chipsets had been found, and that these vulnerabilities are essentially unpatchable due the fact it has been hardcoded into the CPU itself. For AMD users who think that they might be safe, think again because that does not appear to be the case.
For years on end, Apple has relied exclusively on Intel for the processors used in their Mac computers. However, things could be changing because according to recent code discovered in the latest macOS Catalina beta, it seems that Apple could be toying around with the possibility of using AMD processors as well.
If you’re looking for a new laptop, most of the laptops you find in the market today are powered by Intel’s processors. However, if you want an AMD variant, you’re in luck because Lenovo has announced their new Yoga Slim 7 laptops that will be offered in either Intel or AMD configurations.
If you have a game that’s glitching or if videos aren’t playing right or displaying properly, there is a good chance that it could be due to your GPU’s drivers being out of date. This guide will show you how to go about updating them manually in case you don’t have automatic updates enabled.
In addition to the fastest high-end Threadripper (32-core 3970X and 24-core 3960X) processors, AMD also announced the most powerful consumer-grade desktop processors – Ryzen 9 3950X.AMD’s 7-nanometer Zen 2 architecture is a game-changer to help build this processor.This should be the perfect alternative to Intel’s 12-core i9920X. With all the extra cores (16 cores) and a lower price ($749), it is tough to recommend an Intel processor even for a […]
Intel and AMD are each other’s rivals in the processor scene, so a couple of years ago, it was actually kind of surprise when it was revealed that Intel and AMD would be teaming up for a special series of chipsets, where Intel would be creating chipsets that come with AMD graphics integrated into them.
AMD launched its Ryzen 3000 Series CPUs just last week and systems that run them have faced a minor problem. It was quickly noticed by Linux users that an issue with the newer distributions that were based on version 5.0 or higher were unable to boot. Games on Windows reported having issues with Destiny 2 as well. Both of the issues will need to be resolved through a BIOS update.
AMD announced its Navi-based next-generation Radeon RX 5700 and 5700 XT graphics cards just last month. Many were quick to note that the prices didn’t really make them the no-brainer challenger to NVIDIA’s GPUs. However, merely days before their release on July 7th, AMD has decided to cut the prices of its brand new GPUs.
Microsoft’s Surface products have largely used Intel chips even though the company has used ARM chips for some Surface products many years ago. It might be thinking about a return to ARM and possibly even using AMD chips for new Surface products. A report claims that Microsoft’s relationship with Intel is on shaky ground and that the company is testing AMD and ARM chips for future products.
With the AMD Ryzen 3rd Generation family of processors just around the corner, it seems that Intel is worried about what the availability of Ryzen 3000 processors might do for its own chip sales. A report claims that Intel has decided to cut the prices of its processes by 10-15 percent to make its offerings more enticing to customers from a price perspective.
While Intel and AMD are seen as rivals in the processor business, it’s safe to say that Intel has largely been seen as having an edge over AMD and tends to be the more preferred brand. However, due to the recent security vulnerabilities that Intel has endured, it could give AMD a slight boost to help them gain more ground over their competitor.
Lenovo just announced the new ThinkPad T495, T495s, and X395 business laptops, which run on AMD’s second-generation Ryzen processors.
One of the downsides to pretty much all Apple computers is that they lack the ability to upgrade. This is versus desktop PCs where they are not only easy to be disassembled but adding and swapping out old components for new ones is a relatively easy process. However, the saving grace is that at the very least Mac computers now support external GPUs.
