AMD Navi: Everything we know so far about AMD’s next GPU, including release date, specs and potential price

AMD's next-gen Navi GPUs have been a known quantity for a number of years now, but the number of concrete facts about them, such as their specs, release date and price, are still few and far between. With so much of the recent conversation around what's next for gaming graphics cards being dominated by the will-they-won't-they circus of Nvidia's Turing cards, it's easy to forget that Navi's still in the running.…

Asus unveil new series of Arez AMD RX graphics cards

Brands. I love brands. Especially new ones, because they make things so much easier to understand among all the other brands. I am therefore incredibly excited about Asus' new AREZ brand for their AMD Radeon RX graphics cards, because ROG, STRIX, TUF, Turbo, Dual, Expedition, Phoenix and Mining just weren't brandy enough. This one, you see, is named after the Greek god of war Ares (no, not that God of War), and features…

Feature: Murder on the graphics floor

Final Fantasy XV graphics performance: Will it kill my GPU?

PC games usually fall into two camps when it comes to recommended specifications. There's the 'Yes, you'll probably be fine' category, and the 'SWEET LORD CRYSIS 3 IS ABOUT TO MAKE MY PC MELT' bracket. Final Fantasy XV, the anime boyband stag do roadtrip JRPG, almost certainly falls into the latter, so I got together a bunch of graphics cards to see how they fared…

Feature: Vega-ly better than the GTX 1070

AMD Radeon RX Vega 56 review: A good 4K graphics card that’s just too expensive right now

As the great graphics card mining crisis rumbles on, picking a time to upgrade your PC has become a minefield of inflated prices and overblown mark-ups - and nowhere has this been felt more keenly than AMD's new Radeon RX Vega 56 card and its big brother, the Radeon RX Vega 64. Whereas the RX Vega 64 targets the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 (our current best graphics…

Bought an AMD Ryzen Vega APU from Newegg this week? You could be in for a partial refund

Earlier this week, AMD's new Ryzen APUs with built-in Vega graphics - the Ryzen 3 2200G and the Ryzen 5 2400G - finally went on sale for $99 and $169 apiece. That's how much AMD said they would cost and most retailers, lo and behold, have been selling them for those exact amounts. Newegg, however, haven't been playing ball this week, as their initial prices for the pair of…

AMD’s new Ryzen Vega processors are out now and cost next to nothing

AMD's new Ryzen processors with built-in Vega graphics have finally launched around our fair planet. First announced at CES back in January this year, the Ryzen 5 2400G and Ryzen 3 2200G are the first APUs of their kind to come with AMD's tasty Vega graphics built right into the chip, giving budget PC builders a much-needed boost in power and potentially negating the need to have a dedicated card altogether.…

AMD’s taking it one step at a time with its new Vega M Intel chips

When Intel and AMD said they were teaming up for a new kind of 8th Gen Core processor with onboard AMD Radeon RX Vega M graphics, many assumed (myself included) that this would be the start of a new, if slightly weird and wonderful relationship between the once bitter rivals. However, it would appear that the future of Intel's AMD Vega CPUs will rest very much on the success…

Feature: AMD's 4K fighter enters the ring

AMD Radeon Vega RX 64 review: Finally some competition for the GTX 1080

Just as the Radeon Vega RX 56 targets the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070, the Vega RX 64 is AMD’s precision strike on the mighty Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080. About damn time, too – by focusing solely on the mid-range and entry-level RX 400 and RX 500 series (which you can read more about in our AMD Radeon RX 580 review), AMD has given Nvidia free reign of…

CES 2018: Intel launch new AMD Vega CPUs and two super powerful compact PCs

Remember that time when Intel said it was teaming up with AMD for an 8th Gen Coffee Lake CPU with Vega graphics inside? Well, said processor is just about ready to launch. Announced yesterday at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), the two Core i7 chips will be arriving this spring, and Intel's even created two of its very own teeny tiny PCs to show us exactly what they're…

It’s all kicking off at AMD, peeps. The new Vega graphics chip is now more than merely a press release and has finally been released into the wild. Meanwhile, the insane ThreadRipper CPU with 16 cores and 32 threads has also landed. It’s all a far cry from just a few months ago when AMD was soldiering on with an elderly graphics product and a…
