Big things are happening in graphics over at Advanced Micro Devices. That first became clear when AMD elevated Raja Koduri to head up its newly formed Radeon Technologies Group earlier this year, and in the two months since then, he's been busy planning out the future, which he recently discussed with industry...

Do you plan on building a new gaming PC this holiday season? If so, you may want to hold off on picking up a graphics card until you see how AMD's Radeon R9 380X performs. You won't have to wait long -- it's rumored that the mid-range graphics card will launch on November 15, 2015, or just over a week from... Read more...
When it comes to new graphics cards, we're used to talking about things like frame rates and gaming performance at different resolutions. You might think a new dual GPU offering from NVIDIA would elicit similar commentary, but that isn't the case with the NVS 810, a Maxwell-based graphics card with an impressive... Read more...
With all the hype surrounding AMD's use of High Bandwidth Memory (HBM) for its Fury line of graphics card, you would be excused for thinking GDDR5 memory had died and become a footnote. You'd also be wrong. There's still more bandwidth to be squeezed out of GDDR5 memory, and that's what Micron has done. The Boise... Read more...
AMD today added a third card to its Fury line that's arguably the most intriguing of the bunch, the Radeon R9 Nano. True to its name, the Nano is an incredibly compact card, though don't be fooled by its diminutive stature. Lurking inside this 6-inch graphics card is a Fiji GPU core built on a 28nm manufacturing... Read more...
You may have noticed that the bigger the graphics card, the better the performance. It's not a hard and fast rule, though it often applies, or at least it used to. AMD is taking a big step towards reversing this trend of increasingly large graphics cards with the forthcoming release of its Radeon R9 Nano. The... Read more...
For a number of reasons, the launch of AMD's latest high-end graphics card, the Radeon Fury X, didn't go quite as smoothly as the company (or any company, for that matter) would have liked. As we discovered in our review, the card is largely comparable to NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 980 Ti, and happens to include a built-in liquid cooler -- either Read more...
Hot on the heels of the reveal of AMD's Radeon 300 series comes ASUS with four brand-new models that fall into its STRIX series. First seen on the AMD side with the R9 285, STRIX is touted as being ASUS' most effective cooling solution to date, and as someone who's used a STRIX model before, I can attest that the...

Someone at XFX screwed up and posted a press image of the company's forthcoming Radeon R9 390X graphics card on the product page for its Radeon R9 290X Double Dissipation Edition card. The slip up wouldn't be all that egregious for XFX, except that the leaked photo all but confirms the Radeon R9 390X will be a refresh... Read more...
Whenever there's a new flagship graphics card on the horizon, it's almost a given that we'll be treated to a number of leaks about it in advance of its launch. It's not too often, though, that a leak comes from a reputable, trusted source. Take Johan Andersson, for example, the Studio Manager for Paradox... Read more...
Award yourself 500 geek points (can be traded in for geek cred) if you remember Matrox, one of several big players in the 1990s that also included NVIDIA, AMD, ATI (since absorbed by AMD), and 3DFX (since absorbed by NVIDIA). You don't see Matrox in the headlines too often these days, though the company is still... Read more...
If you thought it was a good time to be a gamer, well guess what? It just got even better. AMD used its 30 Years of Graphics and Gaming celebration to announce a new Radeon R9 200 Series graphics card, the Radeon R9 285. Spec-wise, the card is similar to AMD's Radeon R9 280, but with a newer GPU and a few enhancements that make it a more robust... Read more...
It seems a bit silly to pay for a game when you can get it for free, doesn't it? Whoa, slow down there fella -- we're not encouraging you to pirate games on a torrent site or to help yourself to a five-finger discount at your local games retailer. However, if you're in the market for a new graphics card, be advised... Read more...
Turn out the lights, the party's over. Graphics card vendors enjoyed a boost in sales thanks in large part to the Bitcoin mining craze (along with other forms of virtual currency, like Litecoin) that everyone seemed to get caught up in, but the thing about these cryptocurriences is that they're exceedingly difficult...

If you're looking to make a splash in your next high-end gaming rig and have the requisite funds, EVGA will tempt you with not one, but three different NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan Z graphic card options.

There's the GeForce GTX Titan Black Edition with a pile of onboard GDDR5 memory (6GB, to be exact) and the dual-GPU GTX 790, also with 6GB. Thanks... Read more...
It's not too often that we advocate playing the waiting game -- something newer, bigger, faster, shinier, etc. is always around the corner -- but if you're contemplating a graphics card upgrade, this is one of the rare times where it makes sense to wait just a little bit.
