AMD’s Ryzen 4000 CPU series has arrived, sort of

AMD have announced the first batch of processors in their upcoming Ryzen 4000 family of desktop CPUs today, but you're going to have to wait a while before they're available to buy as standalone chips. Instead, the six APUs making up AMD's Ryzen 4000 G-series (the ones with built-in Radeon graphics, in case you've forgotten) will only be available in pre-built PCs initially, with a…

If you're looking to take advantage of AMD's free Assassin's Creed Valhalla bundle with select Ryzen processors at the moment, then there are some great CPU deals happening over at Newegg right now as part of their Fantastech sale (yes, I just did a big shudder as well). The best deal of the bunch is definitely the Ryzen 7 3700X, which can now be had…

AMD’s new free game bundle gets you Horizon Zero Dawn with select Ryzen CPUs

Horizon Zero Dawn still only has a vague 'summer' release date at the moment, but AMD's latest free games bundle suggests a proper release of Guerrilla Games' cyber-dino-hunting adventure could be just around the corner. The bundle isn't up on AMD's own website yet, but various system builders and component retailers in the UK such as Scan, Overclockers and Chillblast have all got pages outlining…

AMD’s B550 motherboards are finally here, bringing PCIe 4.0 to the masses

If you've been eyeing up AMD's excellent Ryzen 3 3300X CPUs recently, then you'll be pleased to hear that AMD's new mid-range B550 motherboards have finally arrived to buy alongside them. The long-awaited successor to AMD's popular B450 chipset, the main advantage of buying a new B550 board is that it's got built-in support for AMD's next CPU architecture, currently code-named Zen 3, giving you…

Feature: An incredible gaming CPU for the money

AMD Ryzen 3 3300X review: the $120 Core i5 killer

AMD really outdid themselves when they launched their Ryzen 3000 CPUs last year, and the Ryzen 5 3600 was a particular highlight. It was excellent value in the face of Intel's more expensive (and cooler-less) Core i5-9600K, and it's been my processor of choice in both my best gaming CPU rankings and my RPS Rig build ever since it came out. Somehow, though, they've managed…

Feature: A great budget gaming CPU that's undermined by its $120 sibling

AMD Ryzen 3 3100 review: get the 3300X instead

AMD's Ryzen 3000 CPUs made a huge impression when they launched last year, with many of them speeding straight in my best gaming CPU rankings, while the Ryzen 5 3600 continues to be my CPU of choice in the RPS Rig. The only things missing from their initial line-up last year were their entry-level Ryzen 3 CPUs. At long last, AMD are finally filling out…

AMD have two new budget Ryzen 3000 CPUs on the way

After claiming several top spots in my best gaming CPU list last year, AMD have just announced they've got two more Ryzen 3000 CPUs on the way for desktop PCs: the Ryzen 3 3100 and Ryzen 3 3300X. Based on AMD's Zen 2 core architecture, these are set to be AMD's fastest Ryzen 3 processors to date. They're also the first Ryzen 3 CPUs to…

Feature: Slaying those frames

Wired2Fire’s Predator PC is primed and ready for 1440p gaming for just under £1300

At the end of last year, I put together our official RPS Rig, which included everything you needed to build a gaming PC for less than £1000, including your monitor, mouse and keyboard and all the extra peripherals that go with a modern PC. However, many of you asked what that rig would look like if it was just the PC that cost £1000 (you…

AMD want their Ryzen 4000 CPUs to be “the best laptop processors ever built”

AMD kicked off their CES 2020 press conference with some big promises last night. Not only are they calling their upcoming Radeon RX 5600 XT GPU the "ultimate 1080p graphics card", but they're also hoping their new set of 3rd Gen Ryzen 4000 mobile CPUs will be "the best laptop processors ever built". Those are fighting words considering AMD have always been a bit of…

AMD’s Ryzen 9 3950X will launch on the same day as their 3rd Gen Threadripper CPUs

The final member of AMD's Ryzen 3000 CPU family, the ultra powerful Ryzen 9 3950X, finally has a release date - as do AMD's freshly-announced 3rd Gen Threadrippers. So far, AMD have only teased two Threadripper/Dataduke™/Bitbasher™/Loadmother™ CPUs, but these will be launching on November 25th together with their Ryzen 3950X sibling. If you like a CPU with more cores than your can shake a stick,…

Feature: A rad(eon) Ryzen PC

PC Specialist’s Inferno R4 is a fantastic 1440p gaming PC for just over a grand

AMD have knocked it out of the park with their RX 5700 graphics card and Ryzen 5 3600X CPU this year, and if I were looking to build a PC for just over £1000 in the next month or so, I'd probably be very tempted to put both of them inside it. After all, the RX 5700 is currently our best graphics card recommendation for…

AMD’s latest game bundle gets you free Borderlands, Breakpoint and The Outer Worlds

AMD have announced a bunch of new game bundles for anyone thinking about buying one of their new Radeon RX graphics cards or Ryzen CPUs. Previously, AMD was giving away three months of Xbox Game Pass for PC with any new Radeon or Ryzen purchase, but now you can also nab a free copy of Borderlands 3, Ghost Recon Breakpoint and / or The Outer…

Feature: If only the Ryzen 7 3700X wasn't so damn good

AMD Ryzen 7 3800X review: Powerful, but expensive

It's been quite a while since AMD first launched their new Ryzen 3000 CPUs, but I've finally managed to get my hands on the last remaining member of their new gaming CPU family, the Ryzen 7 3800X. It's the even nippier big brother of the already excellent AMD Ryzen 7 3700X, but with the even more powerful Ryzen 9 3900X now sitting above it in…

Feature: Ryzen to the occasion

AMD Ryzen 5 3600 review: A great value gaming CPU

When I tested AMD's Ryzen 5 3600X CPU just over a week ago, I said it was a great alternative to our best gaming CPU mid-range champ, the Intel Core i5-9600K. Well, scratch that recommendation, because its regular, non-X sibling, the Ryzen 5 3600, is even better value for money than its £240 / $250 big brother - and almost certainly the CPU to buy…

Feature: Ryzen up the ranks

AMD Ryzen 5 3600X review: A fantastic mid-range gaming CPU

After years of playing catch-up to their Intel rivals, AMD have definitely come out swinging with the launch of their new Ryzen 3000 CPUs. Their high-end Ryzen 7 3700X, for example, made a pretty good impression when I reviewed it a couple of weeks ago, and as an overall value for money play is probably well worth considering over Intel's Core i7-9700K, even if its…

Feature: Sort of, yes, but also not really

AMD Ryzen 7 3700X review: The long-awaited Core i7 killer?

Earlier this week, I put together a list of what I think are the best gaming CPUs you can buy today. At the top end of the scale was Intel's Core i7-9700K, a £350 / $365 processor that, at least in my admittedly rather limited, non-water-cooled PC, was easily the fastest CPU for gaming that didn't cost an absolute fortune *cough*Intel Core i9-9900K, I'm looking…

Feature: But you probably still shouldn't buy it

AMD Ryzen 9 3900X review: Finally, some competition for Intel’s Core i9-9900K

Should you ever spend $500 on a gaming CPU? Personally, I think you'd be mad to spend that kind of money on a processor, especially when Intel's Core i7-9700K offers such incredible gaming performance for about two thirds of the cost. If you are one of these so-called power users with $500-odd to spare on getting the absolute bestest best gaming CPU money can buy,…
