The European Hardware Association (EHA), comprised of the nine largest independent technology news and review websites on the continent, has announced its hardware winners for 2020. And AMD has completely blindsided its competition in all possible metrics, whether you're talking about the GPU or CPU side of the equation. AMD's CPU division has completely razed Intel's offerings when it comes to awards, with no Intel CPU even being credited with a single prize. AMD's Ryzen 3000 series won the most-desired award in the form of the "Product of the Year" award. The Ryzen 3000 chiplet design in itself won the EHA "Best Technology" Award; and more specifically, AMD's Ryzen 9 3950X took home the "Best CPU" prize; the Ryzen 5 3600 won "Best Gaming Product"; and the Ryzen 3 3300X won "Best Overclocking Product".

But AMD didn't stop in the CPU category, besting even rival NVIDIA in the GPU side of the equation. AMD's Navi 10 GPU, used in the Radeon RX 5700 series, has won the "Best GPU" category, while the "Best AMD-based graphics card" award goes to the Sapphire RX 5700 XT Nitro+ (the ASUS ROG Strix GeForce RTX 2080 Ti OC won "Best NVIDIA Graphics Card" category). Another AMD-inside design won the "Best Gaming Notebook" Award - ASUS' ROG Zephyrus G14, which packs AMD's mobile Renoir CPUs inside.

    😺 didn't i tell ya yay😸

    just like Neo i believe 😼

    Those who abuse power, are nothing but scumbags!
     The challenge of power is how to use it and not abuse it. When you abuse it, it reverses on you and it hurts you.The abuse of power that seems to create the most unhappiness is when a person uses personal power to get ahead without regards to the welfare of others, people are obsessed with it. You can take a nice person and turn them into a slob, into an insane being, craving power, destroying anything that stands in their way.

    How much did AMD have to pay to get given the "best GPU" category win. That puts everything else into doubt.

    Well, the RX 5700 XT was named the best overall GPU of 2019 by respected enthusiast media outlets, such as Gamers Nexus. Aside from their driver issues, the partner models with their non-reference coolers performed excellently for a very good price. I have heard that they are way more fun to overclock and tinker with than NVIDIA's RTX series as well.

    If it wasn't for AMD's reference coolers being woefully inadequate and the driver issues, I think it would be an absolutely no-brainer for AMD's RX 5000 series to be the go-to recommendation for the masses. When the partner models came out with their non-reference coolers, it breathed new life into the RX 5000 line.

    The only remaining stain on the RX 5000 series is the reported driver oddities. But price-to-performance remains excellent compared to their competition, so the AMD RX 5000 series is still to go-to recommendation for some. Whether or not you agree, some will recommend the AMD RX 5000; and I think that it is merited depending on your point of view.
