AMD Radeon Pro Duo Discounted Heavily as Vega Nears Closer

Out with the old, and in with the new. That is a mantra that has been echoed throughout history. Of course, before releasing a new product, you need to clear out inventory of the older product it will be replacing. As such, a variety of retailers have begun heavily discounting AMD’s Radeon Pro Duo.

CES 2017: AMD Vega Architecture Partially Detailed, Launching 1H2017

Alongside Ryzen, the Vega GPU is considered by many as AMD’s spearhead product for 2017. As it’s is slowly being finalized for mass production, we had the pleasure of meeting up with Scott Wasson and discuss the details of what Vega can bring to the table.

Scott started off the meeting by pointing out a major problem floating in the graphics industry today: graphics memory could no longer keep up with the demand of the processing power. In addition, conventional GPU architectures can’t adequately scale to handle big data. The media creation industry is using petabytes of working data, and the deep learning sector is extending into the [...]

Rumor: AMD To Release R9 490X and R9 490 in June

We’ve seen the signs, and we’ve smelled the blood. AMD is going to war in 2016.

With Computex taking place at the end of May, it’s almost guaranteed that AMD will seize the opportunity and show off its new cards to the fullest.

Interestingly, the article claims that the R9 490X and the R9 490 will not be a rebrand of AMD’s Fury X and Fury cards but instead will be built using the Polaris 10 architecture. The Polaris architecture marks AMD’s 4th generation [...]

AMD Releases Radeon R9 Nano Specifications and Pricing

AMD has officially announced the Radeon R9 Nano, which is the latest — and possibly final — release to be based on their high-end desktop Fiji GPU with High-bandwidth memory (HBM).

This morning at Computex 2015, AMD held a press conference mainly for the launch of their new 6th generation Carrizo APU, but also devoted a small amount of time talking about their graphics technologies. After spending some time about AMD Freesync, AMD LiquidVR, and HBM (High Bandwidth Memory), AMD ended the presentation with this sad, sad slide. 06.16.15, meaning we’ll be waiting until E3 to hear about the long rumored upcoming Fiji graphics cards.
