The AMD Athlon 300GE has been spotted yet again and it seems that retailers will be selling the CPU in pre-built PCs.  This CPU was spotted in a build from Lenovo and the specifications of the processor are similar to that of the Pro model. The CPU does 3.4 GHz which is similar to the previous generation model and while we were hoping that this generation would have better graphics, the processor features Vega 3 graphics. The AMD Athlon 300GE comes with 2 cores and 4 threads, so this is a basic entry-level CPU. You can check out the specifications of the Lenovo PC that is powered by the AMD Athlon 300GE below: The CPU is going to stick to PCIe 3.0 which makes sense as this is a cheaper processor. It also supports dual-channel memory up to 2666 MHz. The speed is not very high for DDR4 memory but…

AMD Ryzen 3000 series does not hit the advertised boost clocks and Intel has already fired shots at AMD because of this issue. AMD now responded to the issue and has announced an upcoming BIOS update that will fix the problem. Fans have complained regarding the matter and it seems to be a serious issue. You can check out the official statement below: We closely monitor community feedback on our products and understand that some 3rd gen AMD Ryzen users are reporting boost clock speeds below the expected processor boost frequency. While processor boost frequency is dependent on many variables, including workload, system design, and cooling solution, we have closely reviewed the feedback from our customers and have identified an issue in our firmware that reduces boost frequency in some situations. AMD has made it clear that it knows about the issue and that a fix will be released on…

Intel is trying to educate the press regarding AMD CPUs and their boost clocks. In a recently released slide deck, Intel included quotes from reviews that mentioned that AMD CPUs did not hit the advertised boost clocks on all cores. That might be true but it does not really affect a lot of people keeping in mind that the AMD Ryzen chips are more competitively priced when compared to Intel CPU. It makes sense to pick the cores that are best and have them boost to the highest frequency possible. Boost clock is not something ideal to have on all cores at all times. You can check out the Intel slide that mentions AMD false marketing its boost clocks below: It is a pity that Intel is trying to fire shots at AMD this way. Intel is a bigger company and should know better. AMD does make fun of Intel…

WCCFTech’s Usman Pirzada did an exclusive piece speculating that AMD CEO Lisa Su might be leaving the company. He mentioned that Rick Bergman, former CEO of Synaptics, could replace her as the CEO of AMD but that does not seem to be the case. AMD CEO Lisa Su has denied these claims. The article was shared on Twitter and Lisa Su was quick to respond. She mentioned that there is no truth to these rumors and that she is here to stay. She might have teased the upcoming high-end graphics cards in the process. Here is what she had to say in response to the post by WCCFTech: Just for the record, zero truth to this rumor. I love AMD and the best is yet to come! The best could mean anything but keeping in mind that AMD Lisa Su has confirmed that high-end Navi is on track and is…

AMD has made a major comeback with Ryzen CPUs. Intel has been in the market for a long time now and has not delivered on performance gains over the years. This created a space for AMD to get in on the action. By offering great value and performance AMD Ryzen CPU sales have now overtaken Intel in Japan. Intel has been having issues with the 10nm process but the company seems confident that it has the roadmap and the strategy to take on AMD Ryzen CPU sales. The 10nm CPUs have been delayed time and time again. AMD on the other side is ready to release the 3rd generation of Ryzen CPUs that are based on the 7nm process and Zen 2 architecture. AMD came back with the first generation of Ryzen and while the sales were not as high as Intel, it slowly took market share from Intel. Now…

AMD Radeon Technologies Group has released the Radeon Software Adrenalin 2019 Edition 19.6.3. The patch deals with a range of issues but AMD promises more fixes soon. The main highlight I would say is the fix for the overclocking or underclocking GPU memory in three display Eyefinity configurations. The bug caused the system to hang when over or underclocked. Rest assured that won’t happen any more thanks to Radeon Adrenalin Edition 19.6.3. Other fixes and improvements include ReLive YouTube login, ReLive YouTube Overlay fail, and more. Following are the patch notes for 2019 Adrenalin Edition 19.6.3. Fixed Issues YouTube™ login for Radeon ReLive may fail to connect your account. A system hang may occur when performing overclocking or underclocking GPU memory in three display Eyefinity configurations. Radeon ReLive and Radeon Overlay may fail to function correctly after beginning a recording with Radeon ReLive. Region recording in Radeon ReLive may record…

The battle between AMD and Intel has never been more intense. Intel has enjoyed the majority of the market share but things are now changing. AMD is doing impressive innovation in the processor space. Meanwhile, rival Intel has done nothing more than release slightly better yet more expensive generations every year. With AMD’s Matisse, the competition is expected to toughen. Intel’s internal memo leaked a few hours ago and it is a very interesting look into how the company sees AMD. When you read the entire thing, one point is clear as day, Intel now sees AMD has a formidable foe. Intel itself admitted in the document that AMD is more innovative at a reasonable price. Some of AMD’s products offer better performance per dollar compared to Intel. AMD announced its Matisse line of chips earlier this year and Intel knows the challenges it poses. According to the leaked document, Intel…

Intel has had issues with the 7nm process and it has been delayed time and time again. AMD has been catching up in the meantime. Still, Intel claims to have a great roadmap and strategy to compete with AMD according to a leaked memo that was meant for the eye of Intel employees only. Steve Collins, the Director of Data-centric Competitive Assessment Group at Intel talked about the great strategy and roadmap that Intel has to take on AMD Ryzen. Here is what he had to say regarding the matter: Well, first, it’s clearly a challenging time. We have significant competitive challenges to navigate. That said, I think we have a great strategy and a great roadmap. Intel to Emerge Better And Stronger AMD has already announced the new Ryzen 300 CPUs that are based on the 7nm process. These chips provide improvements over the last generation and original AMD…
