AMD EPYC 7002 Series Architecture: Doubling Data Center Performance
AMD has officially taken the wraps off of its second generation EPYC 7002 series processors. The EPYC 7002 series builds upon the success of the original EPYC processors by leveraging the Zen 2 microarchitecture, which is also at the heart of the recently released Ryzen 3000 series desktop parts. EPYC 7002 series processors maintain platform compatibility with existing first-gen EPYC parts, but significantly increase the platform’s capabilities in aggregate and per socket, and introduce a number of new features as well...

AMD EPYC 7502 + EPYC 7742 Linux Performance Benchmarks
Now that you have read our AMD EPYC "Rome" 7002 series overview, here is a look at the initial performance benchmarks from our testing over the past few weeks. This testing focused on the new AMD EPYC 7502 and EPYC 7742 processors in both single (1P) and dual (2P) socket configurations using AMD's Daytona server reference platform. Tests were done on Ubuntu Linux and compared to previous AMD EPYC processors as well as Intel Xeon Scalable.

AMD Epyc 7742 2P Rome Server Review
More of just about everything that matters in the datacenter space. Just over two years ago, AMD took a vital step into reigniting ambitions in the x86 server and workstation CPU space by releasing a slew of high-performance Epyc processors based on the all-new Zen architecture.

Offering performance leadership compared to incumbent Intel Xeons across a wide range of price points - $400 to $4,000 - Epyc, in its various configurations, was a win-win for AMD. Why? Because AMD had no meaningful market-share in the lucrative server and workstation markets prior to Epyc, so the only way was up, and its emergence put Intel's Xeons under a modicum of pressure for the first time in over 10 years.

AMD Rome Second Generation EPYC Review: 2x 64-core Benchmarked
If you examine the CPU industry and ask where the big money is, you have to look at the server and datacenter market. Ever since the Opteron days, AMDs marketshare has been rounded to zero percent, and with its first generation of EPYC processors using its new Zen microarchitecture, that number skipped up a small handful of points, but everyone has been waiting with bated breath for the second swing at the ball. AMDs Rome platform solves the concerns that first gen Naples had, plus this CPU family is designed to do many things: a new CPU microarchitecture on 7nm, offer up to 64 cores, offer 128 lanes of PCIe 4.0, offer 8 memory channels, and offer a unified memory architecture based on chiplets. Today marks the launch of Rome, and we have some of our own data to share on its performance.

AMD Ryzen 5 3400G (Zen+ & Vega 11) APU Review
It's a Zen+ APU with Vega 11 graphics, priced at £139.99. Does Luke rate it? Codenamed Picasso and combining a four-core, eight-thread Zen+ CPU with an 11 CU slice of Vega graphics, AMD’s £140 Ryzen 5 3400G is an evolution from the Ryzen 5 2400G of last year. Boosting up to 4.2GHz on the single-CCX CPU component and 1400MHz for the Vega 11 GPU, clock speed increases are the most noteworthy change from last year’s Ryzen 5 2400G. Another important adjustment is the reduction in MSRP by $20, making the Ryzen 5 3400G slightly more affordable.

Despite the Ryzen 3000 naming scheme, it is important to remember that the current APUs are not Zen 2 architecture and are fabbed using a 12nm Global Foundries process, not the 7nm TSMC FinFET technology of their CPU brothers.

AMD Ryzen 5 3600X Processor Review
When AMD launched the Ryzen 3000 series we were able to get our hands on both the Ryzen 9 3900X and Ryzen 7 3700X. Both of these are very impressive processors, but they have price-tags that could break the bank for many people. So today we are checking out the $199 Ryzen 5 3600X. This by no means is a low-end processor, some might actually consider the 3600X a value at its price-tag. It is a 6-core, 12-thread part with a base clock of 3.8 GHz, max boost clock of 4.4 GHz and 35 MB of AMD GameCache. At $199 it is right in the wheel-house of many people looking to upgrade or build a new system. And with 6-cores and 12-threads it should be able to handle pretty much anything you throw at it. Is this the real star of the Ryzen 3000 series? Read on as we find out!

Dream Machines DM1 FPS Gaming Mouse Review
The DM1 FPS mouse from Dream Machines is the first product we are reviewing that uses Huano switches for the left/right click buttons; these require a bit more force to actuate and offer a nice, tactile feel when used; this feature actually reduces accidental clicks and are rated for about 20 million clicks. In terms of the used optical PMW3389 sensor, which we have seen on many Razer mice before and we have not encountered any issues when tracking while playing games such as Wolfenstein: The New Colossus, Defiance 2050 or Mass Effect Andromeda. The overall comfort is enhanced thanks to the use of a really unique, flexible cable and low weight of just 83g.

EVGA GeForce RTX 2080 Super FTW 3 Ultra Review
The EVGA GeForce RTX 2080 Super FTW3 Ultra comes with a large triple-slot, triple-fan cooling solution, that includes the idle-fan-stop feature. Out of the box, the card is overclocked, and the power limit has been raised as well. In our testing, the FTW3 runs cooler than any other RTX 2080 Super we've reviewed so far.

Fire Emblem: Three Houses Review
Fire Emblem has come a long way in the last 15 years. The series humble beginnings on the Famicom and beyond are mostly lost among fans of the franchise outside of Japan, but Ive been following it, like many fans, since the first few localized games on the Gamecube and Game Boy Advance.

Fractal Design ION+ 860P Power Supply Review
Fractal Design is a company we are all too familiar with in regards to cases, but what about power supplies? Well, Fractal has been in power supplies for quite some time as well. Even if they are not as familiar as some of the more common names such as Corsair, EVGA, Seasonic, and Thermaltake. This does not mean they are inadequate supplies; it just was not a significant focus as far as their overall business.

The ION+ series, which is what we are looking at today, is the next step in Fractals PSU series. From the looks of it, they are taking PSUs quite seriously. They have a new design ID and an overall clean aesthetic. This is a custom designed unit from Fractal Design and OEM High Power.

Initial Benchmarks Of The Spectre SWAPGS Mitigation Performance Impact
Yesterday the SWAPGS vulnerability was made public as a new variant of Spectre V1 that affects all operating systems and is believed to affect only Intel CPUs. The SWAPGS discovery by Bitdefender was quietly mitigated by Microsoft for Windows 10 last month while yesterday the patches were posted for the mainline Linux kernel as the Grand Schemozzle. As soon as learning of this SWAPGS vulnerability and seeing the kernel code, I began running some preliminary performance tests to look at the impact of this latest CPU mitigation.

LaCie Mobile SSD 2TB Portable SSD Review
SSDs bring several advantages over HDDs with the main benefit is the performance. The LaCie Mobile SSD delivers a performance of up to 540MB/s which is a lot more than a 2.5″ HDD can do. But that isn’t all. The SSD consumes less power which is a benefit when you connect it to a portable and battery-powered device. Last but not least, it’s also silent. With no moving parts, it’s also less prone to damage. After all, you wouldn’t want to lose your data while you’re out and about.
