With the dawn of the next generation of consoles, games, and PC hardware on our doorstep, there has never been a better time to upgrade our PCs in order to future proof performance. However, with the rising cost of PC hardware and the significantly higher requirements for next-gen games (partly because of ray tracing), how long do you reasonably expect a new GPU to meet your gaming needs?
We are just under 2 weeks away until AMD’s next generation of Ryzen processors officially launch, the Ryzen 5000 series looks to be AMD’s best lineup yet for their gaming CPUs, but AMD has now infamously jacked up the prices because of their dominance in the market. Zen 3 is certainly shaping up to be a great generation of processors, but which one of the new lineup looks like the best buy?
AMD is getting ready to launch their next generation of Ryzen 5000 CPUs based on the new Zen 3 architecture, and whilst we haven’t got any official 3rd party benchmarks or reviews yet for the new chips, Passmark has now crowned the new Ryzen 5 5600X CPU as the best performing single-core processor, beating the tremendous amount of competition from Intel at a fraction of the price.
As we gear up for the official announcement, more and more rumors surface regarding the upcoming Radeon RX 6000 series of GPUs by AMD. This time however, instead of focusing on the specs of RX 6000 series we have some alleged benchmarks for the Radeon RX 6800 XT graphics card, and it looks to be pretty on par with RTX 3080 performance.
We are slowly approaching the launch of the RTX 3070 graphics card, which was originally supposed to release last week but got delayed to October 29th in order to increase available stock. However, as we get closer to release, many are anticipating some performance benchmarks. Fortunately for us, some RTX 2080 Ti.
When Nvidia announced the RTX 30 series graphics cards, everyone was impressed by the significant jump in performance improvements over the last generation of GPUs. However, there was one concern among some fans regarding the low VRAM capacities, and whether 10GB on the RTX 3080 would be enough.
We are literally just one week away from AMD officially announcing the Radeon RX 6000 graphics cards series, and the excitement is brimming. Whilst we already got a sneak peak at some performance numbers at the Ryzen 5000 CPU reveal, specs have been kept hush and left only to rumors. However, thanks to some new drivers supplied to AIB partners, some official specs have supposedly been leaked for the Radeon RX 6000 series.
An allegedly leaked document has been revealed online which includes guidelines that AMD has prepared for its partners to help combat scalpers during the upcoming Radeon RX 6000 GPUs and Ryzen 5000 CPUs launch, featuring preventative measures to help get the products to legitimate customers.
Geekbench scores have a history of leaking out benchmark results before official release, and with the latest announcement of the Ryzen 5000 series from AMD, some Geekbench scores for the Ryzen 9 5950X and Ryzen 9 5900X have been leaked out, and they show a big performance increase over Intel’s Core i9-10900K.
