New details are emerging

AMD
According to an accidental leak from ASRock, new details on the entry-level AMD Ryzen 3 1200 Processor have surfaced. The chip is supposed to have a base clock frequency of 3.1 GHz with a TDP of 65W. During the next weeks Ryzen 5 might hit the market and right after we might expect the Ryzen 3 series to become available as well.

More optimizations for virtual reality

AMD
Following the launch of AMD’s ReLive 17.3.3 WHQL drivers there is already a new update available. This release is supposed to add support for Asynchronous Spacewarp on the Oculus Rift and SteamVR Asynchronous Reprojection. On top of that support for DisplayPort 1.4 HBR3 and for 8K 30Hz/60Hz displays have been added.

This time by El Chapuzas

AMD
Another set of benchmarks on AMD’s Ryzen CPUs has surfaced. This time it looks like the six-core AMD Ryzen 5 1600 has been tested. This model features 6 cores, 12 threads and a TDP of 95W. According to the latest rumors, the upcoming AMD Ryzen 5 CPUs should become available during this month.

Available later this month

AMD
It looks like the AMD Radeon RX 500 series SKUs, such as the RX 580, RX 570, and RX 550, will become available later this month. According to the latest rumor from Videocardz, a few popular online stores listed various models from ASUS and Sapphire. While at the moment these cards are overpriced due the pre-launch orders, they should be just re-brands of the RX 480, RX 470, and RX 460, with slightly higher reference clock speeds and improved efficiency and therefore the price will drop already at launch.

Only in 1080p

AMD
AMD has had quite a lot of success with its Ryzen 7 processors but the gaming performance, when graphics cards aren’t bottlenecking, was weaker than expected. Earlier this month, AMD explained that this was simply due to the way games are optimised. Ashes of the Singularity is one of the first games that has received a patch to increase the performance in combination with Ryzen processors and the results are impressive.

Improving on memory compatibility

AMD
It looks like AMD is going to release more AGESA Microcode updates for their Ryzen CPUs. One thing they’re addressing is memory latency and they might be able to reduce it by 6ns. Apart from that AMD is going to fix the FMA3 workload bug and the "overclock sleep bug". The new code should be available very soon in the shape of UEFI/BIOS files for AM4 motherboards.
