AMD is on the cusp of releasing its hotly anticipated Radeon RX Vega graphics card lineup, which will be debut sometime this quarter. If all goes well for AMD, its Vega release will once again make it competitive with NVIDIA in the high-end GPU segment just as Ryzen made the company competitive with Intel in the... Read more...
There are many questions surrounding AMD's next generation GPU architecture known as Vega, most of which have to do with performance. Those will be answered definitively soon enough. In the meantime, teases and leaks continue to give us glimpses of what to expect from Vega. The latest leak comes from what appears to... Read more...
Just as Ryzen made AMD competitive in the high-end processor market for the first time in about a decade, there is an expectation that the company's forthcoming Vega launch will do the same in the GPU arena. Of course, right now there are more questions than answers. Some of those are starting to be answered, as least... 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... Read more...
The fastest graphics cards at the moment all belong to NVIDIA. We're not saying AMD has nothing compelling to offer gamers, but when it comes to the best of the best (and 4K gaming), right now it is pretty much Pascal or bust. That will change once Vega arrives, which we anticipate will bring parity with Nvidia's GeForce GTX 1070 and higher Read more...
On the CPU side, AMD is back in the game with its Ryzen architecture. But when it comes to graphics, AMD is still serving the entry-level and mid-range markets with Polaris. Even its recent refresh with the Radeon RX 500 series does not offer anything competitive with NVIDIA's Pascal parts, such as its GeForce GTX... Read more...
At an AMD 'Tech Summit' held in Beijing this past week, plenty was revealed about the company's upcoming Radeon RX Vega. It's not clear whether anything at this summit was meant to leak out almost immediately, but it included some information AMD hasn't yet mentioned on these shores. Nonetheless, there is a lot of...

Dr. Su... Read more...
Last month, we gave you architectural details on RYZEN (the CPU artist formally known as Zen), which is AMD’s latest attempt to directly challenge Intel’s dominance in the high-end desktop processor market. Based on a 14nm FinFET process, RYZEN will be available in 8-core, 16-thread SKUs with 3.4+ GHz clock speeds and... Read more...
Although GPUs based on the technology are not quite ready to ship, AMD recently briefed us on some of the finer details of its next-generation architecture, codenamed Vega.One of the underlying forces behind Vega’s design is that conventional GPU architectures have not been scaling well for diverse data types. Gaming and graphics workloads... Read more...
