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…

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…

What Sony’s PS5 specs tell us about AMD’s Big Navi cards

As big hardware spec reveals go, yesterday's PS5 specs deep-dive was pretty darn dry. Sony's Mark Cerny spent at least 50% of the 50-odd minute presentation talking about the console's SSD, and we still don't have any idea what the thing actually looks like. It was just abstract graph after abstract graph, a bit like the one up the top there, which I think is…
