AMD Designing Zen 4 for 2021, Zen 3 Completes Design Phase, out in 2020
AMD in its 2nd generation EPYC processor launch event announced that it has completed the design phase of its next-generation "Zen 3" CPU microarchitecture, and is currently working on its successor, the "Zen 4." AMD debuted its "Zen 2" microarchitecture with the client-segment 3rd generation Ryzen desktop processor family, it made its enterprise debut with the 2nd generation EPYC. This is the first x86 CPU microarchitecture designed for the 7 nanometer silicon fabrication process, and is being built on a 7 nm DUV (deep ultraviolet) node at TSMC. It brings about double-digit percentage IPC improvements over "Zen+."

The "Zen 3" microarchitecture is designed for the next big process technology change within 7 nm, EUV (extreme ultraviolet), which allows significant increases in transistor densities, and could facilitate big improvements in energy-efficiency that could be leveraged to increase clock-speeds and performance. It could also feature new ISA instruction-sets. With "Zen 3" passing design phase, AMD will work on prototyping and testing it.

BIOSTAR Racing X570GT8 Motherboard Review
With the recent release of AMD’s phenomenally successful Ryzen 3000-series processors, we are now seeing a lot of motherboard manufacturers flocking to release their X570 motherboards. Last month, we’ve had the pleasure in reviewing the ASRock X570 Phantom Gaming X and the X570 Steel Legend motherboards, both proved to be very good motherboards that offered excellent performance, and great value for money.

Cooler Master Mastercase H500 Review
The Cooler Master Mastercase H500 represents the base mass-market model at the center of the H-series. With a price tag of around $100 versus $200 or more for the fancier variants, the classic H500 comes with a well-rounded set of features and retains the main design elements of the series very well. As such, you would never have to feel bad for having gone for the less elaborate option.

Corsair HS35 Review
The HS35 takes many design cues from the current HS line up, featuring oval earcups rather than the angular design of the Void series, it features the same controls and detachable microphone however to save on costs Corsair have chosen to use mesh fabric rather than leatherette for the earcups however they are backed by memory foam still.

From Naples To Rome: AMD’s 2nd EPYC Win Against Intel
If you thought 32-core CPUs were crazy, wait until you see AMD's 2nd Gen EPYC CPUs. These are no simple product refresh, as EPYC Rome is a major step forward for AMD with 64-cores, 256MB L3 cache, PCIe 4.0, and at half the price of the competition. This is one EPYC launch event.

Super Flower Leadex III 650 W Review
The Super Flower Leadex III with 650 W performs very well in all areas: load regulation, ripple suppression, efficiency, and transient response. On top of that, it is one of the quietest PSUs money can buy today and has two EPS connectors for power hungry CPUs and mainboards.

T-FORCE Vulcan 500GB SSD Review
Solid State Drives (SSD) save game and level loading times for gamers and give many apps a noticeable performance boost over using Hard Disk Drives (HDD). SSD pricing continues to soften, and last month Team Group sent us their T-FORCE 500GB Vulcan SATA SSD for evaluation.

BTR uses two identical 480GB Team Group L5 LTE SSDs as boot drives – one for AMD and one for NVIDIA – together with a 1.92 TB SanDisk SSD and a 2 TB Micron 1100 SSD for our primary game storage. In addition, we use a 2 TB Seagate FireCuda Solid State Hard Drive (SSHD) for additional storage.

Team Group Cardea Liquid M.2 PCIe SSD (512GB) Review
Anyone fancy injecting liquid onto their solid-state drive? The incredible evolution of solid-state storage has inevitably run into an age-old computing problem; pack high-performance components into increasingly small form factors and the need for cooling rises exponentially. The preferred choice for most manufacturers is to equip an M.2 drive with an aluminium heatsink tasked with drawing heat away from the underlying processor and memory chips.

A safe, sensible solution, but it was only a matter of time until someone decided to try something a little more adventurous. That someone is Taiwanese manufacturer Team Group, who reckons the time for liquid-cooled SSDs is upon us.

Team Group T-Force Vulcan SSD Review
Now that the other flash fabs have nearly equaled rival Samsung's V-NAND in performance, most companies now have the ability to build low-cost consumer products that compete for the performance crown. Samsung still has an advantage in NVMe performance, but the bus limited SATA spec means you can get class-leading performance from a number of different drives and that helped to drive down costs.

For third-party manufacturers, those without significant flash or controller IP, the winning combination is the Silicon Motion, Inc. (SMI) SM2258 4-channel controller paired with Micron's 64L or 96L 3-bit per cell memory. This combination is open to just about any company willing to write a check, and many have released similar models. The most well-known with this configuration is the Crucial MX500, but that is mainly because it was the first to market thanks to Crucial's direct access to Micron's flash.
