AMD 16-Core Ryzen 9 3950X: Up to 4.7 GHz, 105W, Coming September
One of the questions that was left over from AMD’s Computex reveal of the new Ryzen 3000 family was why a 16-core version of the dual-chiplet Matisse design was not announced. Today, AMD is announcing its first 16 core CPU into the Ryzen 9 family. AMD stated that they’re not interested in the back and forth with its competition about slowly moving the leading edge in consumer computing – they want to launch the best they have to offer as soon as possible, and the 16-core is part of that strategy.

AMD Announces Radeon RX 5700 XT & RX 5700: The Next Gen of AMD Video Cards Starts on July 7th At $449/$379
As part of a jam-packed day of AMD product news, moments ago AMD’s CEO, Dr. Lisa Su got off the stage, wrapping up her suite of announcements. The highlight of which is AMD’s new family of video cards, the Radeon RX 5700 series. AMD first teased these back at the tail-end of Computex a few weeks ago, and while the cards won’t actually launch until July, AMD has opened the floodgates on information about these cards – pricing, expected performance, architecture are all being announced – so we have a lot to discuss about AMD’s new family of mid-to-high end video cards.

AMD Ryzen 3000 APUs: Up to Vega 11, More MHz, Under $150, Coming July 7th
The integrated graphics ‘APU’ line of processors from AMD is a popular entry point for consumers on a budget based on the good performance from the cores, gaming-capable graphics, and all for a reasonable low cost that also comes bundled with a very sufficient cooler. AMD’s APU line is one lock-step behind its leading edge CPU technology, so this time around the new Ryzen 3000 APUs are built on last generation Zen+ 12nm technology, but with increased IPC, clock speeds, and an overall performance bump.

AMD Zen 2 + Radeon RX 5700 Series For Linux Expectations
This weekend I was out the AMD E3 event learning more about their third-generation Ryzen processors as well as their equally exciting AMD Radeon RX 5700 series Navi hardware. Being at the event, one could reasonably deduce the Linux support will be great and it does appear to be that way building upon their improvements of earlier GPUs and Zen processors. It does appear to be that way while obviously we will begin testing soon of these new processors and graphics cards. At least for the Zen 2 processors, I am confident in their Linux support while on the Navi side we are awaiting Linux driver support but I am optimistic it will work out nicely. Now that the initial embargo has expired, here are more details on these new AMD products launching 7 July and my Linux information at this time..

AMD Zen 2 Microarchitecture Analysis: Ryzen 3000 and EPYC Rome
We have been teased with AMD’s next generation processor products for over a year. The new chiplet design has been heralded as a significant breakthrough in driving performance and scalability, especially as it becomes increasingly difficult to create large silicon with high frequencies on smaller and smaller process nodes. AMD is expected to deploy its chiplet paradigm across its processor line, through Ryzen and EPYC, with those chiplets each having eight next-generation Zen 2 cores. Today AMD went into more detail about the Zen 2 core, providing justification for the +15% clock-for-clock performance increase over the previous generation that the company presented at Computex last week.

ASRock Z390 Steel Legend Motherboard Review
ASRock introduced their Steel Legend motherboards with the B450 Steel Legend, which we took a look at not that long ago. ASRock is now bringing over the Steel Legend series to Intel with the Z390 Steel Legend made for 8th and 9th generation Intel Core processors. ASRock is keeping the same type of design with the winter digital camo and silver accents. You’ll also get dual M.2 slots which come with heatsinks, a unique board design, premium 60A power chokes, nichicon 12K black caps, and of course RGB lighting. Could ASRock have another winner on their hands with the Z390 Steel Legend? Read on as we find out!

Coolermaster MK730 Tenkeyless Gaming Keyboard Review
Today we will covering the MK730. We had a chance to cover the CK 530 a while back and one of my complaints was the lack of a wrist rest.

Cougar Panzer G Mid-Tower Chassis Review
When it comes to cases, Cougar is not a brand that normally pops into our minds as a first instinct. This does not mean there is anything inherently wrong with them.

Intel Cascade Lake Xeon W-3200 Launched: Server Socket, 64 PCIe 3.0 lanes
One of the quiet announcements that came out of Apple’s new Mac Pro announcement was the launch of Intel’s next generation Xeon W processors. Aside from being completely under the radar from a formal announcement, the new line of workstation focused CPUs heralds a few quirks: they are Cascade Lake based, they are only in the LGA3647 socket, and they have 64 available PCIe 3.0 lanes.

QNAP TVS-472XT THUNDERBOLT 3 4-Bay NAS Review
The QNAP TVS-472XT costs a bomb, but has a pair of Thunderbolt 3 ports and can take a GPU for faster media transcoding, and its operating system is probably the best in the NAS market. This NAS is mostly for video editors or small and mid-sized businesses that want a very reliable external storage device with tons of features and options.
