Xbox Series X ports leaked (and not by AMD)

This week AMD's press conference showed an image of what appeared to be the ports on an early version of the Xbox Series X. The video which showed the image was put together by AMD - and the image in question was a pre-made render purchased from TurboSquid, a "3D Models for Professionals" site - you can buy 3D models of just about anything you want there, really. That render was not accurate, but a new bit of insider information from Brad Sams at Thurrott suggests we can get a real idea of what the actual ports may be.

It isn't yet time for Microsoft to truly show off its next-gen console but, thanks to a few well-placed teasers, we now know a few details about the upcoming Xbox Series X.

And, like with any unofficial information, there's a big chance that someone gets it wrong.

New Acer Swift 3 ultraslim laptops offer Intel and AMD options

New Acer Swift 3 ultraslim laptops offer Intel and AMD options

For quite a few years, most of the new computers came out with Intel inside, mostly because of a lack of serious competition. With AMD's new Zen architecture, Intel's old rival has gotten back into the game and OEMs have once again started putting AMD processors right beside Intel's. That definitely seems to be the case with the new Acer Swift 3 series but while consumers may be able to choose between two competing processors, they aren't able to choose what comes with those.

AMD Radeon Software Adrenalin 2020 adds game streaming from anywhere

Game streaming is a hot topic in the industry today but not everyone may be convinced that cloud-based game streaming like Google Stadia and Microsoft xCloud are the way to go.

AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3990X to bring 64 cores to high-end PCs in 2020

The CPU market has always been a numbers game but, until recently, the unchallenged Intel was content in keeping the number of cores low. AMD, however, is turning the tables and is turning the competition in a CPU numbers game once more, offering more cores and threads at the usual lower-than-Intel price tag. Nowhere is that emphasis on cores clearer than in AMD's Ryzen Threadripper processors and sometime next year it will bring its most ambitious 3rd gen processor yet, boasting the market's first 64-core desktop processor to topple Intel.

AMD is anything but timid when it comes to its ambitions to conquer the computing market. Not satisfied with challenging CPU giant Intel, AMD acquired ATI to take on the GPU Goliath that is NVIDIA. After shaking up the CPU market with its Zen architecture, it is doing the same with its RDNA architecture and Navi GPUs with moderate success. It is now bringing that success from the consumer graphics card market to the pro industry with the new Radeon Pro W7500, daring to encroach on a market long dominated by NVIDIA.

Intel's oddball Kaby Lake-G chip collaboration with AMD is being axed, with the combo CPU and Radeon GPU product failing to catch the attention of laptop-makers.

AMD Radeon 5500 brings a secret weapon to the GPU midrange

Today, AMD announced the Radeon RX 550 line of GPUs for both laptops and desktops. While AMD gets a lot of attention for its high-end cards, these new GPUs are decidedly mid-range, boasting support for resolutions up to 1080p and framerates that fall between 60 and 90 FPS depending on the game. While you won't be running new triple-A titles at 4K with these graphics cards, not everyone needs that enthusiast-level hardware.
