Watch us construct an all-AMD PC!



{Hardware} releases washed over everybody in a single huge autumn wave this yr—a predictable end result given months of worldwide chaos, however one which’s hardly left us an opportunity to breathe. The onslaught hasn’t simply been a primary set of Ryzen, GeForce, and Radeon components, both.

Since this construct will probably be extra concerned, we’re splitting it into two components. This primary spherical will cease across the level the place we’d mount the GPU.
