Weekly review and outlook: From brand new CPUs to ancient GPUs


Last week was a week of contrasts on ComputerBase, the summer slump played its part. While the news focused on processors that have not yet been published, a look at the GPU history received the most attention in the articles.

With well-known and less well-known names

Among other things, the article deals with the legends among the legends and asks the ComputerBase readers which graphics card has had the most influence on the community. And the survey has shown that the GeForce 8800 GTX is at the top, followed by the 3DFX Voodoo and the 3DFX Voodoo².

In addition, the article deals with the first and oldest graphics cards in the ComputerBase community. In addition to the first 3D accelerators, there are also older 2D offshoots such as various models from ATi, S3, Cirrus Logic, Tseng Labs and Matrox.

Ryzen 7000 will launch in the third quarter

In the reports, on the other hand, processors from AMD that were up to date or not even released were at the top. The report that AMD itself has limited the release of the Ryzen 7000 series and the AM5 platform to the third quarter received the most attention.

Since AMD is talking about “later this quarter” and nothing is currently pointing to August, the Ryzen 7000 CPUs will definitely hit the market in September. It also fits that the rumor mill is currently trading September 15th for the market launch, although the first tests are said to be from September 13th. MSI then named September 15 as the weekend date.

New graphics cards are also available for this year

At the same time, AMD has confirmed that the Next- Gen graphics cards based on RDNA 3 will be released later this year. It is currently being speculated that the Radeon RX 7000 series will start either in October or in November, although this year only the fastest offshoots with the large Navi 31 GPU will appear. The smaller models should then follow next year.
