AMD has released its latest chipset driver for Ryzen systems with AM4 and HEDT TRX40 sockets. The chipset update—version 220.127.116.118 brings new power plan optimisations and bug fixes, amongst other things.
AMD has unveiled its highly anticipated AMD Ryzen 5000 Series desktop processor lineup powered by the new “Zen 3” architecture. The new processor family offers up to 16 cores, 32 threads and 72MB of cache, headlined by the AMD Ryzen 9 5950X.
It’s incredible how much the semiconductor space, specifically in desktop computing, has changed over the past few years. Intel has been a dominant player for the better part, until AMD’s Zen and subsequently Zen 2 architecture came into the picture. For the longest time, quad-core processors ruled the roost. Now we’re talking six, eight, ten cores, and more. Most importantly, prices have been driven down to the benefit of consumers.
AMD has released the world’s first 7nm x86 desktop processors with built-in Radeon graphics for consumer and commercial PC markets. This includes AMD Ryzen 4000 Series Desktop Processors and AMD Athlon 3000 Series Desktop Processors, both with integrated Radeon Graphics and PRO versions for the enterprise market.
Ladies and gentlemen, presenting a new generation of workstation computing—the Lenovo ThinkStation P620. It’s the first and only professional workstation powered by AMD’s fresh-from-the-oven Ryzen Threadripper PRO “Castle Peak” processor and the only AMD-powered device in the ThinkStation line-up. Whether the workflow involves design and visualisation, rendering and AI, the ThinkStation P620 offers unprecedented performance and flexibility in a single socket CPU platform.
AMD announced today that the new AMD Ryzen 9 3900XT, Ryzen 7 3800XT, and Ryzen 5 3600XT processors, targeted at gamers, enthusiasts, and content creators, are now available. Announced just two weeks ago, the new Ryzen 3000XT Series offers higher boost frequencies with better single-threaded performance and power efficiency than its competitors.
AMD has exceeded its moonshot 25×20 goal set in 2014 to improve the energy efficiency of its mobile processors by 25 times, by 2020. The AMD Ryzen 7 4800H mobile processor improves on the energy efficiency of the 2014 baseline measurement by 31.7 times. Greater energy efficiency leads to improved battery life, better performance, lower energy costs, and reduced environmental impact from computing.
Lenovo today announced its new ThinkPad E14 and E15 business notebooks, powered by up to the AMD Ryzen 7 47000U processors with integrated graphics. The new SMB-focused devices offer an improved design, powerful performance, connectivity, and signature ThinkPad ultra-durability.
