Wrapping up the launch of the mainstream Ryzen lineup, AMD rolled out the Ryzen 3 1200 and Ryzen 3 1300X CPUs this morning.
At the entry level is the Ryzen 3 1200 which will be a quad core Zen-architecture based CPU sporting a clock speed of 3.1GHz and a boost clock of 3.4GHz. For those with appropriate cooling, XFR will further bring it up an additional 50MHz. A step above is the Ryzen 3 1300X which will also be a quad core Zen-architecture based CPU, but will sport a slightly higher clock speed at 3.5GHz and a boost clock of 3.7GHz. XFR will further add an additional 200MHz for those with appropriate cooling. Both CPUs are rated at 65W TDP and will come with Wraith [...]
Well, this is it ladies and gentlemen. We’ve been waiting anxiously for over a year now for AMD’s latest Processor, after the disappointment of Bulldozer the PC building scene became primarily an Intel favored one for most serious workloads. While AMD’s APUs have found a pleasant place in the budget market and the FX lineup became a decent option for gamers looking for good bang for the buck, AMD remained way behind Intel in technology for what seams like forever. That changes today. Today we will be looking at Ryzen, will it live up to the hype? Will it fall flat on it’s face?AMD Ryzen Specs CPU Ryzen 1700 Ryzen 1700X Ryzen [...]
Following up on the leaked image of trays of AMD Ryzen CPUs as well as an up close shot of the CPU, a new image of a chart with SKUs and specifications of the stock Ryzen Wraith Cooler have also popped up around the web.
Currently, there seem to be two coolers available. The Wraith Max cooler is designed for up to 140W TDP CPUs while the Wrath Spire is designed for 95W TDP CPUs. The Wraith Max looks to have at least two heat pipes that extend out from the base and into the heatsink. The Wraith Spire simply has a fan seated on top of a circular cooler. Despite being rated for up to 140W and 95W TDP, both coolers are quite compact. Horizontal footprint is rated at 105mm [...]
The latest installment of EA DICE’s long-running, Battlefield 1 will be available in just a little over a month on October 21st.

Last year, it was revealed that the latest installment in the long-running cyberpunk-themed series, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided would support Microsoft’s latest DirectX 12 API at launch. However, in a recent blog post on the title’s Steam community page, it was announced that support for the next-generation API would be delayed until early September.Deus Ex: Mankind Divided DX12 Support Delayed Until September
Here is what the developer had to say on the matter:
The Deus Ex franchise originated on PC, and we’re passionate about continuing to provide the best experience possible to our long-time fans and players on the PC.

Today, AMD announced the AMD A10-7890K APU and the AMD Athlon X4 880K APU which are essentially higher clocked versions of the AMD A10-7870K APU and the AMD Athlon X4 860K CPU respectively.
The AMD A10-7890K APU includes the same amount of CPU cores, GPU cores, and GPU frequency as the AMD A10-7870K except it now comes with a slightly higher 4.1GHz stock/4.3GHz turbo frequency on the CPU. Similarly, the AMD Athlon A4 880K comes clocked at 4.0GHz stock and 4.2GHz turbo.
AMD is also bundling new coolers with the new APU/CPU announcements. Both the AMD A10-7870K and AMD Athlon 880K will receive the new ‘Near-silent’ 125W thermal solution. The new [...]
AMD just released a demo showcasing its all-new redesigned stock thermal solution to be bundled with upcoming CPUs. The new heatsink, which AMD dubs Wraith, is a massive improvement over the current stock offerings and features a four copper heat-pipe design.
Taking a look at the video demonstration provided by AMD, we can see — or rather, hear — that the new Wraith cooler is considerably quieter than the AMD stock cooling solution, thanks to a larger, slower fan, combined with the larger surface area of the newly designed four copper heat-pipe heatsink. This allows the cooler to push more air at a lower speed, while still dissipating as much, if not more heat [...]
