We tested these APUs with the Gigabyte AB350N-Gaming Wi-Fi along with 16GB (2 x 8GB) of G.Skill FlareX 3,200MHz DDR4 memory, both of which were supplied by AMD. Comparison Intel figures were obtained using the Asus ROG Strix Z370-F along with 16GB (2 x 8GB) of Corsair Vengeance LPX 3,200MHz DDR4 memory. All stock speed tests on both platforms were carried out with default BIOS settings, other than memory speed which was set to 2,933MHz. This is the highest officially supported speed of the AMD APUs. It is higher than the officially supported speeds on the Intel chips, but it levels the playing field and in our experience Intel's LGA 1151 platform never has an issue running memory at this speed.
Ryzen returns with higher frequencies and tweaked boosting algorithms, but is it enough to beat Intel?
New chipset and boards inbound, too.
Downplays their severity.
Boasts multiple customer wins.
Flashes your firmware before installation.
Up to 11 compute units on board.
Intel doubled its Core i3 core counts, and the Core i3-8350K costs just £160, but is it still a bargain compared to AMD's Ryzen 5 quad-cores?
15W parts to appear in three new notebooks.
The CPU market has never had a year like 2017, and it all comes down to Ryzen.
Finally, Vega lands. We test out AMD's answers to the GTX 1080 and GTX 1070.
Is AMD's cheapest Ryzen CPU cheap and nasty or a bargain, overclockable quad-core?
Four cores and eight threads for less than £160, but is the Ryzen 5 1400 really a cheap 7700K?
It's finally here - Ryzen has landed, and we've compared it against the best Intel has to offer.
