The purported Radeon RX 6700 and RX 6700 XT GPUs will both launch before the end of March according to French publication CowCotLand, whose unnamed sources claim they're currently scheduled to be released by the end of the…

Feature: A worthy rival to Nvidia's RTX 3070?

AMD Radeon RX 6800 review

When AMD unveiled their pair of next-gen Big Navi graphics cards at the end of 2020, there was hope that they'd bring some much needed competition to Nvidia's latest crop of RTX 30 GPUs. Leading the pack was AMD's Radeon RX 6800 XT, a £600 / $650 graphics card that aimed to take on Nvidia's more expensive GeForce RTX 3080. Alas, the 6800 XT fell…

Cyber Monday 2020 graphics card deals: the best Nvidia and AMD GPUs still available

Black Friday might be over, but Cyber Monday has arrived, and we've been scouring the web to bring you the very best Cyber Monday graphics card deals in both the UK and the US.

Feature: Not the RTX 3080 killer you were looking for

AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT review

AMD have been on a real winning streak this month with the recent launch of their Ryzen 5000 CPUs, and now they're hoping to follow it up with the launch of their first set of ray tracing-enabled Big Navi graphics cards, the Radeon RX 6800 and RX 6800 XT. Utilising AMD's new RDNA 2 architecture, the RX 6800 and RX 6800 XT are both aiming…

Feature: Overshadowed by the 5600X

AMD Ryzen 7 5800X review

After seeing the stonking gaming speeds of AMD's Ryzen 5 5600X at the end of last week, the Ryzen 7 5800X was always going to have a difficult mountain to climb if it was going to prove its worth as a top-notch gaming processor - especially after the rather middling gaming performance of the even more expensive Ryzen 9 5900X didn't really leave it much…

Forget Big Navi, AMD are aiming for ray tracing processors

Today might be the launch of AMD's new Ryzen 5000 CPUs (and you can read my Ryzen 5 5600X review and Ryzen 9 5900X review if you missed them earlier), but the company already have their sights set on what's coming next, and that's ray tracing capable processors. Speaking during a behind-closed-doors Zen 3 engineering panel before today's launch, AMD's Joe Macri told RPS that…

Feature: AMD's Core i9 killer

AMD Ryzen 9 5900X review

I've always been sceptical about the need for high-powered processors like AMD's Ryzen 9s and Intel's Core i9s in ordinary gaming PCs. It's all very well if you use your PC for work editing videos, animating 3D models or running virtual machines and the like, as the extra processing power afforded by their considerable number of cores and threads is no doubt exceedingly useful in…

Feature: AMD sets a new benchmark for mid-range gaming CPUs

AMD Ryzen 5 5600X review

When AMD first unveiled their Ryzen 5000 CPUs at the beginning of October, their new Zen 3 architecture hinted at several tantalising performance boosts, both in terms of power efficiency and overall gaming speeds. Alas, they're also coming at much higher than expected prices, with their mid-range Ryzen 5 5600X starting at a decidedly not-mid-range £280 / $299. It had me worried. Luckily, my fear…

After a good Ryzen 5 3600X CPU deal? Head to Walmart

AMD may have announced their next-gen Ryzen 5000 CPUs are arriving on November 5th, but their unusually high prices may have you thinking it might be better to snap up one of their existing Ryzen 3000 chips on the cheap instead. While CPU deals have been few and far between this Amazon Prime Day, Walmart have currently got the excellent Ryzen 5 3600X for just…

This AMD RX 5500 XT Prime Day deal is a staggeringly low $144

Graphics card deals have been pretty scarce in this year's pick of Amazon Prime Day deals, but this ridiculously cheap from Powercolor is just too good to ignore if you're after a fantastic 1080p graphics card. It's only the 4GB model, mind, rather than the beefier 8GB one, but as you'll see from my AMD Radeon RX 5500 XT review, you really don't gain much…
