AMD’s upcoming Zen 2 APUs may be paired with Vega graphics and not the latest Navi GPU silicon as first thought. AMD Renoir, which is the working codename for these upcoming APUs, has been spotted in Linux driver code, with all signs currently pointing to a GCN-based graphics solution.
AMD has officially launched its EPYC 2 server chips, nabbing major server providers such as Google and Microsoft in the process. Over at its EPYC launch event, AMD officially unleashed its latest 7nm Zen 2 processors with the 64-core/128-thread AMD EPYC 7742 leading the charge to claim market share from Intel.
AMD’s Robert Hallock has released a beta chipset driver for AMD Ryzen 3000 processors that fixes Destiny 2 incompatibility issues.

AMD is now offering boot kits for users attempting to update 400-series motherboards for compatibility with Ryzen 3000 processors. Despite previously claiming at a pre-launch tech day that boot kits would not be offered direct via its support channels this time, the company is now reportedly going to do just that for Ryzen owners with nowhere left to turn but big red.
AMD’s Ryzen 3000 processors are nearly upon us. These will arrive July 7 alongside X570 motherboards and RX 5700-series GPUs – all fitted with PCIe 4.0 capability to supercharge your rigs bandwidth. Older motherboards are also welcome due to AM4’s backwards compatibility, some even capable of limited PCIe 4.0 capability with the right BIOS config. However, according to AMD, this germinal functionality may be nerfed in final retail code.
Hidden code that hinted at a potential AMD X590 chipset may have been a red herring. A reference to the high-end board was spotted with X570 BIOS code last week, portent of a new chipset to come. However, motherboard manufacturers now insist the X590 chipset codename is deprecated, and all its functionality instead shifted onto X570 motherboards.
While AMD has shown that Ryzen 3000 memory overclocking can push above the 5,000MHz mark on the MSI X570 Godlike, and hit 4,200MHz simply using XMP settings on other board, the real gaming sweet spot for performance memory is going to be 3,733MHz. And that’s all because of the Infinity Fabric.
AMD’s RX 5700 XT was originally named the RX 690. Evidence of the disregarded graphics card branding comes straight from AMD. An image – supposedly that of the limited edition 50th anniversary RX 5700 XT – was spotted by our very own eagle-eyed hardware sleuth Dave within the red team’s E3 press deck, brandishing the Radeon RX 690 Limited Edition title in lieu of Lisa Su’s signature.
It has been widely reported that the shiny gold AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT 50th Anniversary Edition would not be available outside of the US and China. You know the one, the new graphics card with Dr. Lisa Su’s initials on it that somehow makes it go faster. Yeah, that one. And with something as shiny and gold as that, why would you limit it to just two territories?
