AMD Ryzen 3000 Processors May Make Destiny 2 Unplayable
When a brand new line of processors are launched, there are (on occasions) a few teething problems that need to be fixed. Thankfully, following the initial launch, these are (mostly) resolved before they hit the vast majority of consumers PCs. If you are, however, an early adopter of the brand new AMD Ryzen 3000 series processor, then it appears that one unexpected issue has cropped up in the world of gaming.

In a report via PCGamesN, owners of the brand new processors are reporting that Destiny 2 is outright refusing to run. Yes, Ryzen 3000 may have broken the game!

AMD Ryzen 7 3700X & Ryzen 9 3900X Performance In Linux
Well, we have our answer today, as AMD has just launched its Ryzen 3000-series CPUs. For desktop, these are codenamed Matisse, and succeed the last-gen Pinnacle Ridge. In addition to a die-shrink to 7nm, these new processors include numerous enhancements to improve IPC performance, more cache, and higher clocks. Best of all, they even feature more cores in some cases.

We have two of the first chips to launch on our test bench today, including the 8-core Ryzen 7 3700X and 12-core Ryzen 9 3900X. Prior to this generation, only the Ryzen Threadripper offered 12-cores in AMD’s lineup, so it feels like Threadripper’s potential market is being eaten into here, and that will especially be the case once the 16-core 3950X arrives in a few months. Rumor has it that AMD plans to impress on the third-gen Threadripper parts, so things could get really interesting.

AMDs Radeon RX 5700 and RX 5700 XT At 1080p, 1440p and Ultrawide Review
It’s been an action-packed summer so far for PC hardware, so we hope you’ve been able to keep up. On the graphics card front, NVIDIA released its GeForce SUPER variants of the RTX 2060 and 2070 last week, with promises of a 2080 SUPER coming soon. With the just-released Radeon RX 5700 series, AMD is helping divide the green side’s launches up nicely.

It’s hard to believe that we’re finally able to talk about what Navi, and ultimately, its resulting RX 5700 graphics card series, brings to the table. The Polaris architecture has felt long in the tooth in some ways for a little while, especially when Vega has shown some huge strengths in comparison – especially on the compute side of things.

Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled Review
Pretty much every platforming star worth their salt ends behind the wheel eventually, but not every kart racer is created equal. Mario’s obviously had his memorable outings, but Crash Bandicoot is no racing slouch either.

FSP Dagger PRO 650W SFX PSU Review
Another quality, new power supply from FSP targeting the small form factor audience. These new SFX power supplies are designed with small system builds in mind – for incorporation into a Micro ATX or Mini ATX chassis. FSP have designed these units able to deliver most of their power across the +12V single rail. Both 550W and 650W models incorporate a 92mm ball bearing fan and they call it a ‘Semi Fanless design’ meaning the fan will only spin up when the load rises.

How to check if you have latest motherboard BIOS for AMD Ryzen 3000 CPUs
AMD announced that the newest Ryzen 3000 series processors can run on specific older AM4 motherboards with nothing but a BIOS update.

Here's how to check if you have the right motherboard and how to update the BIOS.

Judgment Review
When I heard that Ryu ga Gotoku Studios were turning their hand to a detective game with Judgment, I was instantly sold. Anyone that has played a Yakuza game before was likely sold, too. The Yakuza games are all cult classics, each with a high bar for quality, and a wonderful sense of humor.

MSI Prestige X570 Creation Review
Helping the MSI Prestige X570 Creation stand out from the crowd is Dual LAN, which includes WiFi 6 and 10 Gigabit Super LAN for faster network connectivity. We're also provided with a pair of M.2 PCI-E NVMe slots directly on the motherboard, both supporting the PCI-E 4.0 specification, and an add-in card, dubbed the M.2 XPANDER-Z GEN. 4, which adds in another pair of PCI-E 4.0 enabled M.2 NVMe slots complete with a heatsink and active cooling.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 & 2070 SUPER At 1080p, 1440p & Ultrawide Review
The three SUPER models all feature slightly increased core counts over their respective originals, while the 2060 SUPER gains an additional boost by way of an increased framebuffer size. Considering that we’re talking about a $400 GPU here, it’s nice to see an 8GB 2060 finally available.

Presumably because of that framebuffer augmentation, the RTX 2060 SUPER is being treated as a separate model in the lineup, demanding a $50 premium over the non-SUPER, which puts it at $399. The original 2070 and 2080 models, however, are going to completely replace the previous iterations, and retain their price tags ($499 for 2070, and $699 for 2080).

Radeon RX 5700 & RX 5700 XT Review
We could not be more excited to see a competitive GPU with the RX 5700 Series on the market from Radeon or Radeon Technologies Group (commonly summarized as RTG) which is the managing branch within AMD for display/Graphics. I know that to many of you, AMD and RTG/Radeon are common names but since we have not seen an AMD GPU in quite some time, I feel it is necessary to explain where we are starting at today.

Radeon has had quite the troubled road and that’s not to say only Radeon as AMD has had quite the checkered past in being competitive. AMD struggled for over a decade to be a major player in the market in the eyes of consumers. AMD was seen as the cheap or poor man’s option of products. Many saw them for the value they are/were but many enthusiasts users simply would not even consider recommending an AMD product, and this is not just about the hardware side but even supporting software stack issues. Things such as Catalyst software which was a hot mess on many occasions.

RIOTORO CR500 Mid-Tower Review

Ryzen 3700X & Ryzen 3900X Review
The wait for Zen 2 is over and Ryzen 3000 is here! I know I’m kinda spoiling the result by announcing the new king is here, but I don’t think anyone will be surprised with the results we will see today. AMD announced the new Ryzen 3000 series including the two CPUs we have today, the Ryzen 9 3900X and the Ryzen 7 3700X. A short while ago and when AMD demo’d the new Zen 2 based CPU via a Cinebench run head to head and beating the 8700K, I knew we would be in store for something special. How special, I was not sure and while I know, I can tell you that the mainstream king CPU the Core i9 9900K has been usurped.

I really simplified that but I hope you get the point. The CPU wars have been heating up since Zen initially launched a few years back and AMD has been slowly chiseling away at Intel’s market share primarily, but also their performance lead as well. This has been a rather quick progression but in small steps as Ryzen 1st gen and second gen used the initial Zen, then Zen+ which was a more refined version of the initial ZEN core. Now we have Zen 2 which is slated to flip the CPU market on its head if AMD’s initial claims were to be believed. And now its time to dig in and follow the path of what the new platform has to offer and what it can do.

Sea of Solitude Review
The EA Originals program has been a surprising success so far. Yeah, EA is usually about as far from “indie” as you can get, and yet, under the Originals label they’ve published a number of genuinely great, truly original games like A Way Out and the two Unravel titles.

Sennheiser GSP 670 Review
The GSP 670 follows the same design focus as the GSP 600, meaning no RGB and while ditching the wires and attempting to make cable management that little bit easier however this doesn't come without downsides, the headset is only compatible with PC & PS4 rather than all consoles however it also features Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity to enable you to connect to smart phones & tablets.
