AMD unveil new three free games bundle for RX 590 and Vega graphics cards

It was a sad day indeed when AMD's three free games bundle came to an end at the beginning of November (bye bye, free Assassin's Creed Odyssey), but the good news is that today marks the start of a brand new, and arguably even better, AMD games bundle to celebrate the launch of their new Radeon RX 590 graphics card. If you fancy grabbing free…

AMD Athlon 200GE review: The perfect Vega CPU for Fortnite and indie games alike

When AMD launched their Vega-infused Ryzen 3 2200G and Ryzen 5 2400G processors earlier in the year, I was left mighty impressed. Here were two relatively cheap CPUs that could sort of play games at decent enough settings at 1920x1080 via their integrated graphics chips without forcing you to spend hundreds of pounds / dollars on a dedicated GPU - a feat made all the…

AMD resurrects Athlon with new Vega-infused 200GE CPU

AMD have announced a new addition to their family of Radeon Vega CPUs today in the form of the Athlon 200GE. This particular chip is the baby cousin of AMD's Vega-infused Ryzen 3 2200G and Ryzen 5 2400G chips. Described by AMD as a processor ideally suited to "everyday PCs", this diddy little chip will cost just $55 when it launches on September 18 (UK…

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.…

Feature: Ryzen shine

AMD Ryzen+: Everything you need to know about AMD’s 2nd Gen CPUs and more

AMD's second generation of Ryzen CPUs are finally here. Also known as Ryzen+ or the 2000-series, these four new desktop chips are set to replace last year's Ryzen 5 and Ryzen 7 families, offering more competitive performance compared to Intel's 8th Gen Coffee Lake CPUs. There's a fair amount to get your head round, though, especially when you start throwing AMD's 2000-series (but not Ryzen+) Ryzen Vega APUs…

AMD Ryzen 5 2400G review: Impressive 1080p gaming without the need for a dedicated graphics card

Graphics card prices have been up in the clouds so long that the idea of them ever falling back down to something that doesn't make us weep with despair seems almost as fanciful as the idea of earning more than six pence from the dreaded ongoing crypto-mining craze. They will, of course, come down at some point, but that's of little comfort to us in the here and…

Feature: Budget GPU killer

AMD Ryzen 3 2200G review: The Vega CPU with 1080p gaming chops

Graphics card prices continue to outrage and frustrate almost every PC person on the planet. No one likes spending more than they have to in order to play the newest, shiniest games, but the current cost of GPUs is almost enough to make you want to throw your PC out the window and turn tail to join the console brigade. It's that bad. Before you…

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 [block id="604467"…

AMD are sending out free processors to fix Ryzen Vega motherboard issues

AMD's new Ryzen processors with Vega graphics have been causing quite a stir lately. Offering Nvidia GeForce GTX 1030 levels of graphical fidelity without the need for a dedicated card, the Ryzen 3 2200G and Ryzen 5 2400G are quickly becoming the CPU of choice for many budget system builders - at least when US retailer Newegg isn't charging $20 more than AMD's official prices for them anyway. Now,…

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…

Best of CES 2018: The top PC gizmos you’ll want to own this year

The Consumer Electronics Show (CES) is over for another year. It was a slightly weird show this year, marred by an embarrassing power outage, one too many pointless robots (Cloi, I'm looking at you) and the creeping feeling that the world's biggest tech show might just be becoming a bit irrelevant. Fortunately, PC gamers still have plenty to look forward to in 2018, from giganto gaming screens…

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…

AMD’s Ryzen Mobile chips are finally coming to laptops

AMD have been making quite the comeback of late. First came their Ryzen desktop processors - which are pretty darn great compared to their respective Intel competition. Then, they went after Nvidia's GTX 1070 and GTX 1080 graphics cards with their trio of Radeon RX Vega chips. Now, it's time for AMD laptops to get a look in, as Ryzen Mobile is finally here.

AMD’s 16-core CPU and other exciting stuff

Yes, yes, a 16-core CPU is likely-going-on-definitely irrelevant for PC gaming. But it's an exciting notion in simple technological terms and it represents something that certainly is important for gaming, namely that the PC as a platform has woken up again. Along with that mega-CPU from AMD, we also have the imminent prospect of new graphics card families from both AMD and Nvidia, new CPUs…
