AMD is expanding its mainstream RDNA 2 graphics card line-up today with another Navi 23-based offering, the new Radeon RX 6600. As its name implies, the Radeon RX 6600 is a close relative to the Radeon RX 6600 XT, which launched just a few weeks back. This card also targets roughly the same audience, i.e. budget...

It's October 5th, which means Windows 11 is out. Naturally, that's set off a chain reaction of other release both hardware and software. Drivers could reasonably be mentioned in either category, though. Yeah, anyway—there's a new Radeon driver for Windows 11. Radeon Software Adrenalin 21.10.1 is out and has official... Read more...
Intel was the first GPU maker to provide official Windows 11 support in mid-July with its 30.0.100.9684 graphics driver. NVIDIA wasn’t far behind with its GeForce Game Ready 471.41 WHQL driver. Now, nearly two months after NVIDIA’s Windows 11 play, it’s AMD’s turn with the Radeon Adrenalin 2020 21.9.1 software... Read more...
AMD officially launched FidelityFX Super Resolution (FSR) last month, and the company has already announced a big update for gamers. For those that aren't familiar with FSR, it's a spatial upscaling technology that allows game engines to, for example, 4K-worthy levels of detail and image quality using a fraction of a...

Although the situation is improving, it is still extremely difficult to score some of the latest graphics cards at prices even approaching their MSRPs. With that in mind, we’ve held off on covering some of the hottest GPUs to come through the lab for a while, because the coverage was inevitably (and understandably) met with groans and...

The biggest news to come out of AMD in recent weeks is no doubt the release of FidelityFX Super Resolution, which is supported across multiple Radeon GPU generations as well as as number of competitive NVIDIA products. In a nutshell, FidelityFX Super Resolution, or FSR, is a hardware vendor-agnostic technology that... Read more...
When it comes to graphics cards, we typically think of NVIDIA and AMD as being roughly equals. Both companies offer competitive performance these days across their respective product lines and provide robust driver software packages supporting their hardware. Each has had its fair share of software [and hardware] bugs... Read more...

When AMD unveiled "Big Navi", now known as the Radeon RX 6000 series, the new GPU family brought with it support for Microsoft's nascent DirectX Ray Tracing. DXR adds photorealistic lighting, reflections and more visual effects to make games that support the technologies look more true to life. However, real-time ray... Read more...
We are no strangers to Alienware’s Aurora line of gaming PCs here at HotHardware. In fact, we have reviewed many Aurora systems over the years, and for good reason. Aurora desktops embody the essence of a powerful, mainstream prebuilt rig, with semi-custom, almost boutique styling, in a manner that makes them... Read more...
Over the last few years, AMD has made big changes to its Radeon Software control panel on an almost yearly cadence. This time around it's been a little longer than that, as those updates typically launch around the end of the year, though this specific roll-out was extended to April. What has AMD's Radeon team been up... Read more...
