A document suggests AMD will replace CPU brands such as Phenom and Athlon with a lettering system.
We see if AMD's fastest, most overclockable CPU can topple Intel's Core i5 and Core i7 ranges.
Has AMD's tinkering allowed it to catch up some ground with Intel?
Can four cores running at a mighty 3.1GHz make up for a lack of L3 cache in this budget chip?
We preview many new AMD laptops, from ultra-thin to ultra-powerful
AMD is set to launch a range of new low-power dual-, tri-, and quad-core Athlon II CPUs.
This cooler is great, but only if you've already got a pair of quiet fans to use with it.
One of AMD's cheapest quad cores to date is a further evolution of the Athlon brand: the Athlon II X4 630 and 620. Without cache we check to see how it performs against Intel alternatives for the same money, if cache makes a difference and if it overclocks better.
The cheapest quad core CPU to hit the market means potentially good sales for AMD, but is it selling itself short?
The Athlon brand lives on! AMD's latest CPU is a 45nm, 3.0GHz exceptionally budget friendly processor, ready for DDR3 as well as DDR2. Is it a monster overclocker and all round Intel E5200 killer?
Windows XP Mode in Windows 7 requires hardware virtualisation, which isn't supported by some Core 2 Duo and Quad CPUs.
A CPU-Z screenshot showing AMD's Athlon II CPU emerges, suggesting that the new "Rana" core will have no Level 3 cache.
Another Kuma is on the loose and it's 100MHz faster than the last one. Has anything else changed and does AMD have a bargain processor to take on the Intel Penium Dual Core E5200? We test their stock clocks and comparative overclocking potential to see which is the best bargain buy.
Quad-core and triple-core Athlon-branded CPUs are rumoured to be scheduled for release later this year.
AMD introduces its new Yukon platform with its latest CPU: The Athlon Neo. Squeezing between the popular and cheap netbook platform and expensive ultra portables - AMD hopes to score some "ultra thin" wins. We pick through the details to decide whether AMD has enough to make a new market.
We've seen how AMD's new Kuma CPUs perform at stock speeds, but what's the best CPU to buy for us overclockers: Intel's ever popular E5200 or AMD's new inexpensive monster? We evaluate overclocking performance to see which platform affords the best value.
This cute little 17cm square motherboard is absolutely jam-packed with features from PCI-Express to HDMI and High-Definition to 65W full AMD CPU support. Could this be the ultimate low power, ultra small form factor home theatre motherboard?
AMD has announced its latest round of desktop processor price cuts. Pick up a high clocked quad-core for a little over £100!
While previous Sapphire boards have been considerably, well... naff, the latest Pure CrossFireX 790FX has been backed by DFI - and just like other DFI boards, it's kitted to the teeth for enthusiasts!
Dell has decided to make most of its AMD-powered machines only available in Dell's retail partner stores - no more online love for AMD?
MSI appears to have problems with its K9A2 CF - it is now not supported with 125W CPUs like the AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+ and 6400+.
With the AMD Phenom processors dropping in price hand over fist, some great deals on AMD ATI Radeon HD 3800-series graphics cards to be found... could MSI's K9A2 CF make now a good time to invest in that Spidery thing?
Leaked AMD roadmaps suggest that AMD hasn't finished with the K8 architecture yet. There's another eleven processors coming in the first half of next year.
Last week, I spent some time with AMD in Warsaw, Poland with the intention of finding out what's going on inside the newly-crowned platform company. The three elements that make up the Spider's web were the talk of the town, but I left somewhat disappointed.
A lot of people have been slagging 64-bit Operating Systems like Vista, saying the only benefit is a true 4GB of RAM. So we decided to cut through the BS and anti-Microsoft sentiment and look at the real pros and cons of 64-bit computing.
For the second time in under a month, AMD has quietly launched new processors. This time, it's in the Sempron and Athlon lineups.
AMD has surprisingly added a new CPU to the Athlon 64 lineup. It's called the X2 5000+ Black Edition and is more than just another 5000+.
AMD is going for a modular system when making its CPUs in the future, with new cores named "Bulldozer" and "Bobcat".
AMD is said to be readying the launch of a new flagship dual-core processor before Phenom arrives later in the year.
After news trickled out over the weekend, AMD has indeed chopped prices again. You can now pick up a 6000+ for just $169.
Sources at Taiwanese motherboard manufacturers suggest that AMD's long-awaited Phenom processors may launch as early as November. There will be four models initially, with another seven following in 1Q08. Details inside.
The PR rating was introduced with the Athlon XP, but now, four years later AMD is changing it all again with something a bit more descriptive... or confusing? You decide...
AMD has shared some details with us on its upcoming native quad core "Barcelona" processor. With it comes a new name: Phenom. We delve into the depths of the new architecture to see what improvements have been shoehorned into the new silicon.
AMD launched its RS690 chipset today, with more motherboard manufacturers shipping the hardware than ever before
Yesterday morning, AMD announced what is probably its final member of the K8 family. The Athlon 64 X2 6000+ is AMD's first socket AM2 processor to break through the 3GHz barrier. In the wake of AMD's latest round of price cuts, the X2 6000+ has an attractive price, but does that make it a good buy?
