AMD Radeon 5700 GPU Prices Cut Ahead Of Release

AMD announced its Navi-based next-generation Radeon RX 5700 and 5700 XT graphics cards just last month.

Microsoft Reportedly Testing AMD And ARM Chips For Surface Products

Microsoft’s Surface products have largely used Intel chips even though the company has used ARM chips for some Surface products many years ago.

AMD Reassures That Their Chips Are Safe From ZombieLoad Vulnerability

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.

macOS Will Now Support AMD Radeon RX 560 eGPUs

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.


AMD Announces 7nm Radeon VII Next-Gen Graphics Card

AMD has launched a new high-end graphics card for consumers at CES 2019 in Las Vegas. It’s refreshing to see a new high-end option from AMD as it has been lagging behind NVIDIA in this segment.

Blackmagic eGPU Pro Now Available For Purchase

While Apple’s computers have been designed to be very sleek and elegant, the problem with such a design is that for the most part, it makes Apple’s computers very difficult to upgrade. To be fair benchmarks have proven that Apple’s higher-end rigs are more than capable of holding their own when it comes to heavy work, but what if you needed that extra oomph?


Latest macOS Update Hints At AMD Vega GPUs Coming To More Macs

Last month Apple officially released their MacBook Pros that used AMD’s new Vega GPUs. At the moment these are the only Mac computers that are using it. We expect that more of these GPUs will find their way to other Mac computers in the future, and a recent report from Phoronix (via AppleInsider) seemingly confirms that.


BlackMagic eGPU Pro Delayed To December

One of the criticisms of Apple’s computers is that generally-speaking, they’re not upgrade-friendly. This means that you will need to decide when making your order whether or not those are the specs you’ll be okay with using for the next few years. This is versus PCs where you can easily swap out RAM, GPU, storage, and so on.


SMACH Z Handheld Gaming Console To Enter Production In 2019

When it comes to handheld gaming, Nintendo has pretty much that market cornered with its 3DS console, although our mobile phones are also doing a good job of allowing us to game on the go. However come 2019, we might have a new contender in the form of the SMACH Z which is scheduled to enter production early next year.


12 And 24 Core AMD Threadripper 2 Chips Launching October 29th

If you have been excited to pick up AMD’s second-generation processors but didn’t really feel the need for the 32 core model then you’re going to like this. The company has announced that it’s going to launch 12 core and 24 core Threadripper 2 models later this month.

AMD Launches New 45W Ryzen Laptop Chips

AMD is out with two new processors today. They’re 45W Ryzen chips for laptops which will compete against Intel’s Coffee Lake H series processors that are widely used for gaming notebooks and workstations. The new chips are essentially laptop versions of the four-core desktop-class chips that AMD launched earlier this year. However, they will enable AMD’s silicon to find its way into more portable computers.
