AMD released their new AMD Radeon Software Crimson ReLIVE Edition and as such we'll have a quick peek at driver performance compared to several other AMD Catalyst drivers. In this article we'll fire off the multiple games from the Guru3D benchmark suite at multiple drivers with the Radeon RX 480 to see how much performance you will really gain (or not).
AMD is getting ready for the winter, in this article we look at what AMD labeled the Radeon Crimson ReLive Edition. This is the new 16.12 driver which has had some TLC from AMD. The release is not offering overall performance for games, but AMD has been working on new features. Time for a quick article, to cover all topics.
We review the MSI Radeon RX 470 8 GB version tagged 'Gaming X'. Let's check out the new 8 GB version with the all new TwinFrozr revision VI cooler, extra RGB LED functionality and very nice factory increased clock frequencies.
We review the ASUS Radeon RX 470 STRIX Gaming 4 GB, based on the second ASIC based of Polaris 10, the Radeon RX 470 with 4 GB graphics memory is bound to impress for the money. Join us in this article where we'll tell you all about its performance and features.

Join us as we review the MSI Radeon RX 480 GAMING X, we test the model fitted with 8GB graphics memory (there is a 4GB model as well). This TwinFrozr VI cooled mainstream graphics card series will allow you to play your games in both the Full HD 1080P range as well as gaming in WQHD (2560x1440) range. And all that at a rather reasonable price of roughly 269 USD.

We review the AMD Athlon 845, a quad-core processor that can be seated into FM2/FM2+ compatible motherboards. It is the first processor from AMD that we test that is based on the Carrizo architecture, which was announced for their mobile platform exactly a year ago at Computex.
AMD today releases their Radeon Pro Duo. The product is a dual FIJI GPU based product. Unfortunately there will not be any reviews on this product, and that is going to upset many of you. Especially since AMD has been on a very public marketing campaign teasing the product openly for both consumer and prosumers, and therein is the conundrum to be found.

AMD released a new model, Godavari. The new A10-7860K APU slash processor that was announced in February. It is an APU at a reasonable price. The 7860K is the second best APU in terms of perf yet only costing roughly 115 USD while offering a nice balance in-between performance and energy consumption.
AMD is releasing some new SKUs in their processor and APU line-up in Q1 2016. You will see A10-7860K, A6-7470K, and Athlon X4 845 processors as well as new coolers including the new Wraith and a feature update in the motherboard chipset series.

In this article slash review we will test out the 599 EURO FreeSync compatible ASUS MG279Q Gaming 27-inch 2560x1440 monitor that can do 144Hz. Combined with FreeSync, AMD eliminates stutter and tearing while gaming. The ASUS MG279Q Gaming is a spectacular IPS panel based monitor with great image quality and heaps of connectivity.
The AMD Radeon Technologies Group is responsible for everything that is related to Radeon graphics cards and APUs. In this January 2016 update we can talk a little more about the new upcoming Radeon architecture called, Polaris.
The AMD Radeon Technologies Group is responsible for everything that is related to Radeon graphics cards and APUs, today shares some new technology enhancements. In this December 2015 update we'll talk HDR, low framerate compensation (LFC), FreeSYnc for HDMI and the move to DisplayPort 1.3 compatibility.

AMD released their new AMD Radeon Software Crimson Edition and as such we'll have a quick peek at driver performance compared to the recently released AMD Catalyst 15.11.1 Beta Driver. In this article we'll fire off the entire Guru3D benchmark suite at both drivers with the new Radeon R9 380X to see how much performance you will really gain (or not).
Small, tiny and cute are the keywords for the AMD Radeon R9 Nano that we review today. The product has an incredibly small form factor yet is powered with a Fiji XT chip that brings some significant gaming performance to this graphics card.
At the launch of the Radeon R9 Fury and Fury X AMD also announced something that caught the interest of many, a small form factor yet high-end graphics card aimed at powerful small game and HTPCs, yes the Nano today is announced
We review, test and benchmark the Radeon R9 Fury X, one of the most discussed products of the year. A product that is big in performance, comes with that all new HBM memory and is based on a small form factor while this initial X model, is already liquid cooled for you. But will it perform?

We review Godavari, the new A10-7870K APU from AMD. Initially intended for system-integrators who want to offer a nice APU at a reasonable price. However the 7870K today also will see the retail channel, the top dog APU from AMD is costing roughly 140 USD only and offers a nice balance in-between performance and energy consumption.
AMD briefed selected press on HBM - High Bandwidth Memory. This new type of graphics memory is going to change the para dime in the graphics industry when we are talking about using less power, smaller form factors but most of all extreme memory bandwidth. In this article we'll cover this very topic.
