AMD launches inexpensive entry-level motherboards with the A520 chipset on the 18th of August and, like Intel, completely prevents overclocking

AMD’s board partners are planning to introduce the A520 chipset-based motherboards for the entry-level class next week, and the 18th A520 motherboard is being released. August as the official start date. The significantly lower-priced A520 offer is aimed primarily at desktop PC beginners and of course system integrators / finished PC [...]

AMD's B550 at the maximum: Gigabyte B550 Vision D in review – a bit special, but also pleasantly different

Gigabyte puts a B550 motherboard on the market with the B550 Vision D, which is rather poaching in the nobler upper house with currently a good 260 euro and is partly almost twice as expensive as the cheapest X570 boards. While I still had stomach aches with the Gigabyte B550 Aorus Master to explain the price in a plausible way, the Gigabyte B550 [...]

PCI-Express 4.0 vs. 3.0 in test – advantage or tie? Real workloads provide Aha-moments every now and then! | practical test

Yesterday I had already put the new Radeon Pro W5700 through its paces in the launch article “AMD Radeon Pro W5700 Review – price and performance are right, but it’s enough for the Quadro RTX 4000?“, but I was still unclear where the advantage of the new test platform with the Ryzen 9 3950X including X570 motherboard and [...]

Third Generation Malocher – AMD Threadripper TR 3960X and 3970X announced with 24 and 32 cores for now | Update: MSI and AORUS Motherboards Overview

Epyc 2 has long been in the wild and is allowed to snatch away Intel's Xeons one or the other server loot. Now also Threadripper 3 with a new chipset, about which there were long discussions in the run-up, especially since the boards have also inherited the small chipset fan from the X570 platform. However, the SP3 server socket no longer [...]

Inside Lab: Combine real-time power consumption measurement on CPU, GPU and motherboard with system and sensor data? Go!

The previous practice of real-time measurements (even over longer periods of time) only with the oscillographs is certainly not bad and it also allows deep insights into the switching behavior of graphics cards and CPUs due to the high resolution, but it is always only possible possible to capture a sub-area of the overall system. Interactions [...]

[Update] Big real-world test with three X570 motherboards in a closed PC – the truth about voltage regulators, fans, temperatures and the onboard sound

The largest possible CPU on the smallest possible motherboard, best still remove all the heat sinks of the voltage regulators and that's the basis for the next YouTube orgy. Of course, I couldn't completely escape my curiosity about the possible limits, but in the end one should also be aware of his responsibility as a medium and not panic the [...]

Three X570 motherboards tested – wrong sensor values, faulty Precision Boost Overdrive (PBO) and different performance

Actually, I only wanted to compare three of the cheapest motherboards with an X570 chipset and a Ryzen 5 3600X, but I quickly found out that in the end you read out contradictory things that are not plausible and cannot be explained with logic. Therefore today the first attempt of a cause investigation and clarification takes place, however, with [...]
