These AOC displays have no frame

There's a new display in town from AOC, and it comes with what AOC describes as a "frameless" body. This is part of the V2 Series of frameless monitors - again, AOC's term, not ours. There are three models: a 22-inch (22V2H), 24-inch (24V2H) and 27-inch (27V2H) model. Each of the monitors has a Full HD IPS display panel with AMD FreeSync tech under the hood and what AOC calls a "true zero-edge design".

AMD Athlon 200GE brings Zen cores to low-end PCs

If you think you haven’t heard anything about AMD’s Athlon brand in a long while, you’re probably not alone. Once the premiere line of AMD processors, the Athlon has taken a step back and practically disappeared, especially with the introduction of the new Zen CPU architecture and the Ryzen processors. AMD, however, isn’t done with the brand yet and is pushing it back into the spotlight with the Athlon 200GE, its first Athlon to use Zen cores and an integrated Radeon Vega GPU.

Intel discrete graphics card still coming in 2020

Intel discrete graphics card still coming in 2020

Chip maker giant Intel has seen its kingdom slowly shrinking from the combined onslaught of ARM on the mobile side and AMD’s resurrection on the PC side. While it still has some things to boast about over its long-time rival, the one thing can’t claim is having a superior graphics solution the way AMD has ATI. At SIGGRAPH, Intel is reminding PC makers and users that it won’t be the status quo for too long. It also inadvertently reminded them that it’s not the first time Intel tried to come up with a discrete GPU of its own.

AMD 2nd Gen Ryzen Threadripper boasts a whopping 32 cores

It's a core numbers game again. This time, however, the competition has reached double digits. While desktop and laptop CPUs still dawdle on quad cores, AMD and rival Intel are heating it up in the server and enterprise market. Just after Intel boasted about its upcoming 28-core chip slated for late 2018, AMD dropped its own bombshell. It has 32 cores and it's not afraid to use it. In fact, it's also coming sooner, around the third quarter of the year.

AMD Ryzen Pro now comes with built-in Radeon Vega graphics

AMD Ryzen Pro now comes with built-in Radeon Vega graphics

Onboard graphics chips have earned a not so good reputation for being near useless beyond basic display capabilities. That reputation is partly thanks to Intel who, until recently, hasn't exactly given its built-in GPUs much love. AMD, in contrast, is playing up its Radeon property, acquired from old NVIDIA rival ATI, to boost both its images and its graphics chops. It is putting those chops to work on the second gen Ryzen PRO processors for notebooks and desktops. And this time, AMD made sure it has some OEMs to cheer it on.

In addition, rounding up all of the parts you need can be a stressful process, but AMD may have found an answer to both problems with its new Combat Crate.
