New supercharged AMD Ryzen 7000 CPUs could be imminent

AMD is set to unleash a trio of Ryzen 7000 processors with 3D V-Cache tech including a mighty 16-core spin, and these chips are just around the corner according to a new rumor.

In fact, new 8-core, 12-core and 16-core 3D V-Cache CPUs will be launched at CES, according to Quasarzone, as @harukaze5719 explains on Twitter. Of course, we should take this with the usual skepticism that should be applied to hardware rumors, and it’s not clear if this will just be an initial reveal next month, or the processors will actually go on sale in January 2023 (we’ll come back to that).

These will presumably be the Ryzen 9 7950X3D (16-core) plus 7900X3D (12-core), but it’s apparently unclear whether the 8-core chip will emerge as the 7800X3D or 7700X3D. There will be no 6-core X3D processor according to the spillage shared here.

Quasarzone also insists that unlike the existing 5800X3D, where clock speeds were dialed back, the clocks of these Ryzen 7000 3D V-Cache products will be the same as their vanilla counterparts – or at least very close to the same. Which sounds like maybe some models will stick to the same frequencies, and others might dip very slightly – presumably we’re talking 100MHz, rather than the 400MHz slowdown imposed on the base clock of the 5800X3D.

Analysis: Faster CPUs inbound, but no more affordable option?

There are a couple of interesting things here, one of them being that a past rumor from an established leaker insisted that things could pan out quite differently. That speculation shared by ECSM just a few weeks back claimed that there would be 6-core and 8-core X3D processors, but nothing else.

So not only does this new rumor rubbish the idea of a 6-core chip, but it also floats the possibility that there will be a pair of high-end X3D models, including a 16-core flagship version. Which is exciting stuff on the face of it just to see the kind of performance gamers might get from that (the 5800X3D being well-known as a great chip for gaming, of course – and the same is expected from the 7000 series variants).

Then again, a Ryzen 7950X3D is bound to be very pricey, and so on the affordability front, a focus on beefier chips and the apparent lack of a 6-core option for 3D V-Cache is somewhat disappointing. Still, that’s not to say that AMD couldn’t eventually produce other X3D models such as a 7600X3D.

If Quasarzone is right with all this, one of the most tantalizing prospects is how early AMD is pushing out these refreshed CPUs. The aforementioned previous word from the grapevine was looking at April at the earliest for Zen 4 X3D chips to turn up – and indeed it could still be the case that even if we do get a reveal at CES, the processors may not be on sale until a while after.

That said, the suggestion here certainly seems to be a January launch, or at least that the X3D versions are pretty close to coming out. And in all honesty, that’s what AMD needs in terms of the necessity to bolster its Zen 4 ranks as soon as possible to compete with Intel’s Raptor Lake.

It’s worth noting that given the quite different angles taken by these two recent rumor dumps, we should probably be even more cautious around all this speculation for the time being. At least we don’t have long to wait now for CES to find out what AMD is going to reveal there.

Android 12 will bring the end of third-party share menus

Apps like Sharedr will no longer be able to replace the default share dialog. What you need to know Third-party apps will not be allowed to replace the Android share menu in Android 12. You will no longer be able to set apps like Sharedr as the default. Google says it never intended to allow third-party apps to replace the official Sharesheet. One of Android 12 's biggest highlights is the new Material You design language, which brings major changes to nearly every key UI component. Android 12 will also introduce a major change to the way users share links and photos, according to a report from XDA Developers . On Android 11 , Google allows third-party apps and OEMs to fully customize the Android Sharesheet, which is the reason why the share dialog differs from one app to another. It is even possible to completely bypass the official Android Sharesheet by setting an app like Sharedr as the default Sharesheet. In addition to providing a more consistent experience, Sharedr

The new Amazon Fire HD 10 is growing into a viable productivity tablet

An already good entertainment device finally gets productive. Amazon has been busy churning out a whole host of new devices and upgrades to existing devices over the past several months. Earlier this year, I reviewed the excellent Echo Buds (2nd Gen) , and even the fantastic Echo Frames (2nd Gen), have since been updated to include options with sunglass and blue light filtering lenses . In early May, we also learned that Amazon was refreshing the Echo Show 5 and Echo Show 8 and that it was even rolling out its first Echo Show for kids . While newer and more novel products like the ones mentioned above often see a faster update cycle, more mature devices like Kindle e-readers and Fire tablets go longer between new versions. In fact, the last update to the Fire HD 10 line was back in 2019, so, understandably, Amazon was ready to reinvigorate its flagship tablet. Not only did it update the specs and colors on the Fire HD 10, but it also gave us a second version in the Fire HD 10 Plu

Google Announces Support for Account Passkeys

Google today announced that it is introducing support for passkeys, providing an easier and more secure login method for Google accounts. Apple integrated passkeys into iOS with the launch of iOS 16 , and it is also available in iPadOS 16.1 and later as well as macOS Ventura . Passkeys are an industry standard developed by the FIDO Alliance and the World Wide Web Consortium, so Google's passkey integration will work on Apple devices as well as on other devices that support the feature. As Google notes: Last year — alongside FIDO Alliance, Apple and Microsoft — we announced we would begin work to support passkeys on our platform as an easier and more secure alternative to passwords. And today, ahead of World Password Day, we've begun rolling out support for passkeys across Google Accounts on all major platforms. They'll be an additional option that people can use to sign in, alongside passwords, 2-Step Verification (2SV), etc. Passkeys are both easier to use and more
