Mobile computing has become the next big target at AMD with its new series of Ryzen 4000 APUs. Today we have the first retail Ryzen 9 4900HS laptop on the market to evaluate, so the focus will be on performance to see for the first time how Zen 2 brought across to mobile stacks up against Intel's tried and true line-up.
Doom Eternal is the series' latest demon-killing romp, bringing more weapon variety, a plethora of new demons to face off against, and exciting new environments to explore. Today we're taking 25 graphics cards to see how they perform in Doom Eternal using the latest optimized GPU drivers.
Almost every desktop PC has one. They have billions of transistors, can use hundreds of watts of power, and can cost over a thousand dollars. They are masterpieces of electronic engineering and generate extremes in product loyalty and disdain... and yet the number of things they normally do can be counted one just one hand. Welcome to the world of graphics cards!
If you're looking to buy a new graphics card today, don't mind all the testing, marginal FPS gains, power consumption figures, or overclocking potential. TechSpot's Best Graphics Cards is written to get a simple question answered: Given a certain budget, which is the graphics card you should buy?
After reviewing the Threadripper 3990X, it was made clear the 64-core/128-thread beast from AMD lays waste to every HEDT part we have ever tested. It's an insane productivity CPU, that we pushed to extremes to torture a few motherboards just this week. Then we thought, why not try out some big bulky coolers as well?
Today we're going to perform some AMD TRX40 motherboard VRM thermal testing using the powerful 64-core Threadripper 3990X. To apply load we're using Blender with the system running at stock and overclocked to 3.8 GHz. The typical power draw for this system is around 450 watts, but once overclocked we are hitting as much as 850 watts. Toasty!
AMD CPUs and GPUs will power the future world's fastest supercomputer, 10x faster than current leader
Today we're looking at AMD's Radeon RX Vega 56, originally a $400 product that was meant to compete against the GTX 1070 in mid 2017. If you're wondering why is this relevant, we'd say the main reason is that to this very day, you can buy a Vega 56 graphics cards for as little as $250.
Today we're comparing Nvidia's GeForce RTX 2060 and AMD's Radeon RX 5600 XT head to head in over 30 games at two resolutions: 1080p and 1440p. Let's find out which card is on top between the newly launched mid-range Radeon and the year-old RTX 2060 that has received a price cut down to $300 for some models.
Having recently reviewed the Ryzen 5 1600 AF, you should know all there is to know about this nimble CPU. In short, it's an incredible value for less than $100, however there are some who say the Core i3-9100F is a better choice. It's also cheaper and more widely available, so let's discuss Intel's budget processor.
Today we're looking at the most expensive desktop CPU to ever exist, and shockingly it's not from Intel. The Threadripper 3990X is a 64-core, 128-thread Zen 2-based processor that AMD fully acknowledges is a special purpose processor that combines both high frequency and high core counts into a single package.
