Wondering what AMD's plans are in terms of server strategy? Don't bother looking up leaks; the chip-maker is laying it all out in front of you. In what has to be one of the most unusual moves in recent memory, AMD is bucking the trend of all-out secrecy by disclosing today its server roadmap. Why? It's mostly aimed at... Read more...
Although AMD said in January that it was diving in strong with Windows 8 and was not interested in making chips for Android devices, senior vice president and general manager of global business units at AMD Lisa Su told PCWorld that the company may shift some of its focus to building chips for Google’s two operating systems and is in...

A few months back, AMD unveiled a handful of mobile Elite A-Series APUs, formerly codenamed Richland. Those products built upon the company’s existing Trinity-based products but offered additional power and frequency optimizations designed to enhance overall performance and increase battery life. In addition to these optimizations, AMD... Read more...

AMD is announcing its Radeon HD 8970M today. We say "announcing" instead of launching because this chip is essentially a rebadged HD 7970. It wasn't initially clear if this would be the case -- the HD 7790, which the company launched back in March, is based on a new design has a few small feature changes that have led it to be unofficially Read more...
The dawn of GPU computing came about in large part due to the immense gap in compute performance between traditional CPUs and programmable GPUs. Whereas CPUs excel with serial workloads, modern GPUs perform best with highly parallel operations. If you look at the slide below, it shows an array of Intel processors... Read more...
AMD announced its earnings today, with figures that generally reflected to poor state of the entire PC industry. Normally, this is where I'd delve into those figures and run the numbers. Not this time. AMD's conference call and Q&A session were interesting enough that the company's Q1 performance can be dealt with... Read more...
AMD has confirmed that Battlefield 4 will be part of its upcoming "Never Settle" bundle. The game isn't supposed to drop until late 2013, which means AMD is announcing a coupon package well in advance of the actual title. This isn't the first time a manufacturer has taken this step, but it's been quite awhile -- the... Read more...
AMD has just announced a new family of Elite A-Series APUs for mobile applications, based on the architecture codenamed “Richland”. These new APUs build upon the success of last year’s “Trinity” architecture, by improving graphics and compute performance, enhancing power efficiency... Read more...
AMD has yet to make an official statement on this topic, but several unofficial remarks and leaks point in the same direction.  Contrary to rumor, there won't be a new GCN 2.0 GPU out this spring to head up the Radeon HD 8000 family. This breaks with a pattern AMD has followed for nearly six years. Starting with... Read more...
We have had a few weeks with three A85X motherboards, the Gigabyte F2A845X-UP4, ASRock FM2A85X Extreme4-M, and Asus F2A85-V Pro, and AMD’s top of the line Trinity A10-5800K APU, which combines 4 unlocked Piledriver CPU cores (stock 3.8GHz, turbo 4.2GHz) with an integrated Radeon HD 7600D GPU with 384 Radeon Cores at 800MHz. We’ve... Read more...

After struggling as of late in the market, AMD is mounting an offensive against very stiff competition, and part of that effort is the next generation of the company’s APUs. Codenamed “Richland”, we knew that these chips will be built on Piledriver CPU cores just as the last generation Trinity APUs... Read more...
If you have a penchant for x86-based embedded system development, AMD and GizmoSphere have a new tiny board for you to play with. The Gizmo is a 4 x 4-inch development board designed for use in applications as diverse as set-top boxes, industrial control systems, and casino gaming, and it features an AMD G-T40E... Read more...
Although Xi3 made CES headlines for other things this week, the company has some tasty wares to show off in the form of its unique modular computers, and we got a firsthand look. There are just a handful of models in the lineup thus far, but despite their small size, these machines pack a wallop. The X7A is the highest end unit in the group... Read more...
It has been a rough few years for AMD. The company has found itself increasingly behind the eight ball and outmaneuvered, thanks to strong competition from Intel and less-than-stellar performance with recent releases of their A series integrated APUs. At a press event yesterday at CES 2013,  the Sunnyvale-based... Read more...

There's a bit of quoted wisdom that's been making the rounds in tech news, recently. Up until now, I've ignored it, in the hopes that it would die out and go away. Instead, it seems to be showing up with greater frequency. It looks something like this: "Like Intel, AMD was caught flat-footed in recent years with the... Read more...
A team of overclockers dubbed “The Killers” broke the record for the fastest overclock of an AMD Trinity APU at the AMD Extreme OC show in Taiwan and also took out the record for AMD’s Vishera platform for good measure. Using a Gigabyte F2A85X-UP4 motherboard, the crew cranked an AMD 5800K APU with a... Read more...
Numbers from Jon Peddie Research on the current state of the graphics market point to Nvidia as the big winner of Q3 2012, against both Intel and AMD. Intel's share of desktop and notebook sales both dropped roughly 8%, while AMD took a much smaller hit in desktops (2%) and a far greater hit in notebooks, sliding a whopping 17%. For Sunnyvale,...
