There has been a lot of activity on the AMD-Intel front over the past week. Earlier this week, out of nowhere, Intel announced that it has been working together with AMD on its upcoming Kaby Lake-G family of processors, which incorporated Radeon graphics in a multi-chip module (MCM). On Wednesday, the first benchmarks for the Core i7-8705G and Core i7-8809G leaked to the internet. Today, we're getting a real world look at the Kaby Lake-G MCM instead of fancy computer renders/press shots. As you can see, the MCM is absolutely massive compared to most modern processors, and it looks like it's currently... Read more...
AMD's Raja Koduri, the head of the Radeon Technologies Group, announced back in September that he was going to step away from AMD for a sabbatical after Vega launched. Koduri said that he was stepping aside to spend more time with his family. Originally, he had planned to return to his position in December, but those plans have changed. This is also the same executive who took to social media to answer questions about Vega when the GPU first launched. Koduri has now announced that he will be leaving the company, and there is currently no clear indication of what Koduri might be doing in the future.... Read more...
Intel dropped a bombshell on the tech industry yesterday when it announced an upcoming Core processor family that will incorporate AMD Radeon graphics on-package. Not even 24 hours after that original announcement, we're already getting leaked information with regards to the specs of these processors and benchmark figures. According to a leaked report, there are at least two known SKUs at this point: the Core i7-8705G (694E) and Core i7-8809G (694C). The Radeon GPU featured on the multi-chip module (MCM) reportedly features 24 compute units and a total of 1536 stream processors. The GPU in the... Read more...
This morning we have some historic and momentous news for you in the computing world and it is sure to rock long-standing factions that have stood behind Intel and AMD processors to the very "Core." Intel just announced today that it has collaborated with AMD to deliver 8th generation Core processors that have on-board AMD Radeon Vega graphics integrated into a single, multi-chip module package (MCM). Yes, you read that correctly. The new processor package incorporates an 8th Generation Core H-Series CPU, AMD's Radeon Vega GPU and HMB2 memory all in a single chip package. Intel says that it...

This does not always happen, but AMD finally has reason to celebrate after posting a quarterly earnings reports. The Sunnyvale chip designer raked in $1.64 billion the third quarter of 2017, to the tune of a $71 million profit. That is a remarkable turnaround from the same quarter a year ago in which AMD posted a whopping $406 million loss, and up from a loss of $16 million just one quarter ago. "Strong customer adoption of our new high-performance products drove significant revenue growth and improved financial results from a year ago," said Dr. Lisa Su, AMD president and CEO. "Our third quarter... Read more...
At its launch, one of the most common complaints about AMD's Radeon RX Vega cards was their reference cooler, and in particular, its weak cooling performance. Reference coolers are rarely that impressive, but it was especially true with a powerful GPU like Vega. Immediately, people yearned to see what companies like Gigabyte would release to one-up that reference design. It didn't seem likely at first that Gigabyte was even going to release its own variant of the Vega 64, but lo and behold, it's happened. What you see below is the company's GAMING OC, sporting not just two large fans, but a large... Read more...
Today is the day AMD's Radeon Technologies Group has been working towards for a long time. The official launch of the Radeon RX Vega is here, and it's now time for AMD RTG's moment in the spotlight. Advanced Micro Devices (NASDAQ:AMD) has been on a tear as of late; the desktop and server processor group executed successful launches of its Ryzen desktop processor, EPYC server platform, and finally the big bang last week with its Ryzen Threadripper enthusiast 12- and 16-core processors, which were met with high praise. Ryzen, EPYC and Threadripper are tough acts to follow, just ask Intel. So too... Read more...
AMD has officially lifted the veil on its new Radeon RX consumer graphics line-up, featuring the company's next-generation Vega GPU architecture. After months of architecture disclosures and rumors, we finally have real specifications and details on the actual Radeon RX Vega graphics card line-up, including pricing, and what AMD is doing to make the cards as attractive as possible for gamers.Initially, there will be four cards in the Radeon RX Vega line-up, the standard air-cooled Radeon RX Vega 64, a Radeon RX Vega 64 Limited Edition with stylized metal fan shroud, the liquid-cooled...

We are out at SIGGRAPH learning about AMD’s upcoming Radeon RX Vega GPUs and Ryzen Threadripper processors at the moment. We will have many more details to share with you tomorrow evening after AMD’s Capsaicin Event, but the company is allowing pictures of the Radeon RX Vega to be posted right away, so we thought we’d share them with you all. Raja Koduri With The Radeon RX Vega Liquid Cooled EditionWhat we have here are pictures of two Radeon RX Vega cards – the liquid and air cooled editions. Raja Koduri, Senior Vice President and Chief Architect of the Radeon Technologies Group, is holding... Read more...
  If you own an AMD Radeon graphics card, we’ve got some good news to hand down to you to today. AMD has announced the arrival of Radeon Software Crimson ReLive Edition 17.7.2, which brings with it a number of new features that will help make your gaming experience even more immersive. One of the headlining features is the arrival of Enhanced Sync, which enables VSync (reducing tearing artifacts) while at the same time providing an unlocked frame rate. In addition, latency than can oftentimes be introduced with technologies like VSync are reduced. When the frame rate for a given game drops... Read more...
Things are looking better indeed for AMD, thanks to the success of its Ryzen processors and Radeon GPUs. This is great news for PC fans everywhere, since AMD is finally offering CPUs (like its Ryzen Threadripper) that enthusiasts and gamers are once excited about. Competition is a great thing and will spur growth in the entire industry. The company's earnings are in and AMD's Q2 actuals were stronger than expected, thanks to demand for its bread and butter products. AMD reported non-GAAP earnings of two cents per share with revenue of $1.22 billion. That figure represents growth of 19% on... Read more...
All major Linux kernel releases carry a handful of special updates, but there are some that are still a lot more notable than others. Linux 4.12 is one of those kernels, with even Linus Torvalds stating that it's one of the "bigger releases historically". A big reason for that? Well, for starters, it include introductory AMD Radeon Vega support. This comes hot on the heels of AMD unleashing its Vega Frontier Edition to the world, and close to a month before the consumer variants launch at SIGGRAPH 2017 in Los Angeles. AMD's Vega architecture is now supported in Linux - to some extent It's important... Read more...
Late last year, we were introduced to AMD’s new Radeon Instinct GPU accelerators, which are targeted at machine intelligence and deep learning tasks. As you might expect, these GPU accelerators will be going toe-to-toe with NVIDIA’s Tesla family of products, which are found in some of the world’s top supercomputers. Marco has already written a rather informative article giving you an overview of the Radeon Instinct family and AMD’s ROCm software suite, but today we’re here to give you a more specifics on the hardware powering these new GPU accelerators. The Radeon Instinct family consists of three... Read more...
Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) posted a loss of $73 million, or $0.08 per share, on revenue of $984 million in the first quarter of 2017, the chip designer announced. The loss might have been higher if not for the launch of AMD's Ryzen processors, which the company credited with its year-on-year revenue growth. However, sales of its graphics processors, and in particular custom GPUs for consoles, fell flat. "We achieved 18 percent year-over-year revenue growth driven by strong demand for our high performance Ryzen CPUs as well as graphics processors," said Dr. Lisa Su, AMD president and CEO. "We...
