AMD Advantage Gaming PC Demos: RDNA 3 meets Zen 4
At his Radeon RX 7900 series RDNA 3 (opens in a new tab) graphics card launch event, AMD announced its AMD Advantage program for gaming desktops. Just as with high-performance laptops, the AMD Advantage initiative aims to create AMD-based desktops that offer maximum performance and operate seamlessly. AMD showcased one of the first such systems at its event, the Millennium AMD Advantage Edition from Origin PC.
The AMD Advantage design framework for laptops combines the company’s high-end hardware. It allows the CPU and GPU to work in concert to align their performance, power, and thermal levels to deliver the best performance and experiences. Also, AMD Advantage laptops widely use various smart software tricks supported by Adrenalin Edition drivers to improve performance and overall user experience.
With desktop computers, the AMD Advantage program will look a little different, as it will focus more on hardware and less on software. All desktop machines bearing the AMD Advantage badge will take advantage of the Ryzen 9 7900X Where Ryzen 9 7950X Radeon RX 7900XT or RX 7900 XTX processor and graphics card. Additionally, all desktops participating in the AMD Advantage for desktops program will be co-engineered by engineers from PC manufacturers and AMD, who will ensure that they are properly cooled and reliably powered to deliver performance. maximum.

In addition to pairing AMD’s latest Ryzen 9 processor with one of AMD’s Radeon RX 7900 series graphics cards, the chip designer has special requirements for AMD Advantage systems. It includes the use of a premium chassis, liquid cooling for the processor, 32 GB or more of DDR5 memory with AMD EXPO profiles, at least 2 TB of NVMe storage, an 80Plus Gold or better power supply and a tool-free entry.
Origin PC’s Millennium AMD Advantage Edition desktop will be one of the first such systems on the market, which our Jarred Walton caught on camera in the AMD showroom. Indeed, the system comes with the AMD Radeon RX 7900 XTX graphics card, a liquid-cooled Ryzen 7 7950X processor, an Asus ROG Crosshair X670E Hero motherboard and AMD EXPO DDR5 memory.
The monstrous machine joins Samsung’s 55-inch Odyssey Ark 4K Quantum Mini-LED gaming display. It features a variable refresh rate of up to 165Hz to enjoy high-resolution, high-frame-rate gaming on a colossal screen even before the first DisplayPort 2.1-compatible monitors were available in early 2023.

“AMD Advantage [for desktops] goes further by ensuring that every component, from the motherboard to NVMe drives, from memory to power supply and everything in between, they all work together seamlessly and they are all tuned for performance with every design and quality metric,” said Frank Azor, Head of Gaming at AMD. “Whether you’re gaming, streaming, or creating, AMD Advantage desktops are designed and developed with our partners to be the best desktops you can find on the market.”
System integrators participating in the program include CSL, CyperPowerPC, eBuyer, Falcon Northwest, Maingear, Origin PC and Xidax.
