The specs needed to just power a VR headset are painfully high, so it stands to reason that the hardware used by developers to make those games will need to be something special. That’s what AMD is trying to deliver with its new Radeon Pro Duo, unveiled at the Game Developer’s Conference today.
You know what I really really want when I’m on a plane? A computer strapped to my face.
This year, I bought myself an Nvidia GeForce GTX 970 graphics card. It was time to upgrade. And I was pleasantly surprised to find I could buy a mini version of one of the best cards ever made. Now, I can potentially fit my beefy gaming PC into a console-sized case. But a new card from AMD is about to do small and…
For years, AMD processors have been a byword for cheap and cheerful — frequently picked in budget gaming guides, but always followed by some justification about how a Core i3 would be a better option if you weren’t so poor. But the latest AMD APU, named Carrizo, might just be the company’s battery-sipping,…
It's Computex time, and that means new guts. While Intel's trotting out Broadwell for a spin, AMD's swinging back with its newest batch of mobile APUs—dubbed Kaveri—including the new FX-branded laptop-brains, which offer kick-ass integrated graphics that are bar none for gaming.
If you buy video cards, chances are you have a lust for power. No respectable PC builder doesn't at least covet insane high-end cards, even without ever really considering them. Well here's a new sucker to salivate at, the 11.5 teraflop, water-cooled AMD Radeon R9 295X2. The new coolest card you have no reason to own.
Yesterday, Intel announced its plans to run Android and Windows on the same PC in perfect harmony. Now, it seems AMD has the exact same plan.
Contact lenses are great if your only issue is near or farsightedness, but for those struggling with age-related macular degeneration (AMD), a leading cause of blindness among older adults, those flimsy little lenses ain't going to cut it—or at least not the kind of contact lenses you're used to. But soon,…
The Wall Street Journal is reporting that AMD is taking a leap into unknown waters, as it readies its first ever ARM chip.
AMD just one-upped its own series of eight-core FX processors, and the golden child of this newest lineup is unquestionably the FX-9590, which they claim to be the world's "first-ever 5 GHz processor." While technically that record was already beat—and by AMD themselves, no less—it is, in fact, the first commercially…
AMD had admitted that it's willing to make chips that work with Android—but only if people ask it nicely. What a tease.
Intel's new 4th-gen chips may be on the horizon, but AMD is taking the opportunity to strike first and get out there with its new family of third-generation A-Series processors ahead of time. Enter "Temash," "Kabini," and "Richland," which will make themselves at home in upcoming tablets, midrange notebooks, and…
We don't know squat about what the PS4 will look like since it didn't make an appearance at Sony's two-hour long press event last night, but we've learned a lot about what it'll be like when it finally shows up. And now, we know it's going to have AMD innards.
AMD claims that four of its former execs stole over 100,000 secret documents before joining Nvidia. Ouch. [Ars Technica]
Vizio's "Tablet PC" (cooler name pending, presumably) gets everything right on paper, and a lot off paper: a 1080p screen, a full, no-bullshit version of Windows 8 (none of that RT nonsense), and an AMD (!) x86 processor inside. But it's bulky.
While we still have a ways to go before the advent of photon torpedoes and warp drives, Stony Brook University has just brought us one step closer to our Star Trek future with the unveiling of its immersive video projection system, the Reality Deck. What? Holodeck was already taken.
AMD has officially announced its new tablet-specific Z-60 processor, known as Hondo, and it promises rather a lot. In fact, the chip manufacturer claims it will allow you to play Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 on your Windows 8 tablet, at 30 fps on a 1024 x 768 display. Sounds zippy.
AMD just announced the processor that could power your next desktop: the second generation A-Series processor. It has more cores for more power, integrated graphics with the AMD Radeon HD 7000 for graphics and puts a high priority on power efficiency.
