Adobe Creative Cloud: 2 years later, I begrudgingly submit

Adobe Creative Cloud: 2 years later, I begrudgingly submit

I use Photoshop almost every day of my life, and for the past two years, I've used Adobe Creative Cloud. When the cloud services for the whole Adobe app suite were first announced, I had reservations. Partially because I'd been using my very very old copy of Photoshop from a half-decade ago and it hadn't caused me any major trouble until then. Partially because I didn't realize how much I'd use Adobe apps if they were available in the way the company made them available with Adobe Creative Cloud.

AMD Ryzen with built-in Vega graphics available now

AMD Ryzen with built-in Vega graphics available now

For a long while, Intel has remained practically unchallenged on desktops and especially on laptops and tablets for a couple of reasons. One of those was because Intel’s processors came with integrated GPUs that deliver graphics functionality right out of the box, without having to invest in a discrete card unless absolutely necessary. Now, however, it has gotten some real competition. AMD has been trying to gnaw at Intel’s share of the market on servers and desktops and now it completes the picture with its first Ryzen processors that include their very own integrated Vega GPU in a single chip.

Lenovo Thunderbolt 3 Graphics Dock runs Windows Mixed Reality

Lenovo Thunderbolt 3 Graphics Dock runs Windows Mixed Reality

Laptops are getting thinner and thinner, not to mention sometimes converting into tablets. But the price of portability is performance, at the very least graphics performance. There are, of course, a new breed of computing accessories that deliver added graphics processing power via Thunderbolt 3 but those are heavy in both price and form. Enter the Lenovo Thunderbolt 3 Graphics Dock somewhat quietly revealed at CES 2013. No larger than a laptop, this graphics card enclosure claims it’s powerful enough to even run Windows Mixed Reality at 90 Hz rates. But, of course, there’s always a catch.

AMD Radeon RX Vega GPUs, Threadripper CPUs launched

AMD Radeon RX Vega GPUs, Threadripper CPUs launched

AMD has made its comeback in the CPU market with the launch of its Zen-based Ryzen processors to take on Intel’s Core line with more affordable digits. But the consumer PC war isn’t won with CPUs alone. Graphics cards play an equal role, sometimes even greater for both gamers as well as multimedia workers. That is why AMD is now launching a new “Vega” GPU architecture, this time to strike at NVIDA’s long-held monopoly in the discrete graphics card market.

Radeon RX 480 converts to RX 580 with a code

Radeon RX 480 converts to RX 580 with a code

This week the folks at AMD are witnessing an odd occurrence with their latest RX 580 graphics card. While the RX 580 features a new power state and faster processing speeds, it's pretty much just a slightly modified RX 480 card. Users saw this and started in tweaking their hardware with software freely available from AMD. It would appear that an RS 580 BIOS file flashed to an RX 480 card results in what's pretty much an RX 580 - almost.

Imagination PowerVR Furian could give future iPhones a boost

Imagination PowerVR Furian could give future iPhones a boost

Unlike in the world of PCs where you have the likes of NVIDIA and AMD/ATI butting heads over graphics cards, the mobile graphics chip scene is often less sensational. It does still have its big names, though, like Qualcomm’s Adreno, NVIDIA’s Tegra, and ARM’s Mali. Predating these, however, is Imagination’s PowerVR, which traces its roots back to the early days of desktop graphics hardware accelerators. The company has just announced its latest gen GPU architecture, the Series8XT, a.k.a. “Furian”, that could give next year’s iPhones 4K and VR capabilities.
