The AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT Liquid Cooled is as impressive as its name

Graphics cards are still very difficult to find thanks to a global parts shortage combined with big demand, but that isn't stopping AMD from rolling out a new version of its top-of-the-line Radeon RX 6900 XT GPU. This new version, called the Radeon RX 6900 XT Liquid Cooled, gives away its main new feature in the name, as the GPU is outfitted with a liquid cooler that should help it boost performance over its air-cooled counterpart.

AMD Radeon RX 6000M GPUs target gaming laptops with RDNA2 tech

After what may be considered a hibernation period for AMD, Intel's eternal rival has returned kicking and brandishing an impressive arsenal of new chips under its new Zen CPU architecture and equally new Radeon RDNA2 graphics technology. Unsurprisingly, those took aim at the desktop PC market first but now AMD is bringing the same technologies to a more mobile form factor. At this year's Computex, it unveiled not only the newest Radeon RX 6000M series of graphics chips for laptops but also a new certification program for gaming laptops to rival Intel's Evo.

Samsung Exynos with AMD Radeon GPU could come in a laptop first

Samsung Exynos with AMD Radeon GPU could come in a laptop first

Although Qualcomm and, to some extent, Rockchip, have long been on some laptops running Windows and Chrome OS, respectively, the arrival of the Apple Silicon M1 showed how the market for ARM-based desktops and laptops is still wide open to competition. There are, however, only a few big names that could probably be a good fit for that kind of device and it seems that Samsung's biggest Exynos gamble will be heading to laptops first instead of smartphones.

Next Samsung Exynos flagship to have AMD GPU

Next Samsung Exynos flagship to have AMD GPU

Back in mid-2019, Samsung and AMD announced a partnership that, to this day, has born no visible or tangible fruit. Given one of AMD's specializations, it was pretty much speculated that Samsung would eventually utilize AMD's expertise on the GPU front to give Samsung's Exynos chips a graphics boost, probably even in two year's time. Those two years are almost up and as if on cue, Samsung itself has actually confirmed that, perhaps by the end of the year or next year, your next premium Galaxy phone could have graphics muscles to rival some mobile PCs.

AMD Radeon RX 6000 series: Benchmarks claimed VS NVIDIA RTX

AMD Radeon RX 6000 series: Benchmarks claimed VS NVIDIA RTX

AMD Big Navi is here with the AMD Radeon RX 6000 series graphics cards, and AMD's got the benchmarks to prove it. Of course we wouldn't want to claim the end-all, be-all accuracy of the company reporting said benchmarks since they've got a LOT to gain from said benchmarks being favorable to their cards... but the results are telling, just the same. Included in the mix today are the AMD Radeon RX 6800, 6800 XT, and 6900 XT, with details on how they stack up VS NVIDIA's RTX 3000 GPU lineup.

AMD Radeon RX 6000 GPU can be viewed in Fortnite

The days when graphics cards were simple boring slabs of green plastic and pieces of metal are pretty much ancient history now. As more powerful graphics cards become bigger, the opportunity to give them some visual personality and flair has also opened up. More than just cold, hard numbers, the likes of AMD and NVIDIA have taken to selling new cards' design as well. And what better way to do that than to dump the upcoming Radeon RX 6000's design where many gamers are most likely to see it: in Fortnite.

Samsung Galaxy phone with AMD Radeon GPU coming next year

Samsung Galaxy phone with AMD Radeon GPU coming next year

Samsung and AMD announced a partnership last year that was unsurprisingly filled with generic "forward-looking" statements and nothing to show for. It was pretty much presumed that Samsung would be licensing AMD's Radeon graphics technology for use in its own Exynos chips. That hasn't born fruit yet but the wait might worth it if these early benchmark figures for the unnamed chip will be the performance will see on new Samsung flagships next year.

Mac Pro Radeon Pro W5700X MPX module now available for purchase

Mac Pro Radeon Pro W5700X MPX module now available for purchase

Apple has received a lot of criticism for the design of its last two Mac Pros but few will deny that those designs are completely pointless. In the case of the 2019 "cheese grater" model, the design not only allows for better ventilation but also for easier upgrades. That is what the new modular system is for and now you can try out that for yourself with the standalone AMD Radeon Pro W5700X MPX GPU module. That is if you have the money to burn for one.

Xbox Series X AMD GPU source code stolen and leaked

Xbox Series X AMD GPU source code stolen and leaked

Although some would consider how smartphone ARM processors have become powerful enough to challenge some PC CPUs, discrete graphics cards, especially those powering extra beefy computers, are still out of reach of these mobile computers. As such, it's a very profitable and therefore highly secretive business. So when alleged source code for some of AMD's high-profile graphics processing units (GPUs) leak out, it's no surprise that the company and the Internet are making a big fuss over it.

AMD Radeon Software Adrenalin 2020 adds game streaming from anywhere

AMD Radeon Software Adrenalin 2020 adds game streaming from anywhere

Game streaming is a hot topic in the industry today but not everyone may be convinced that cloud-based game streaming like Google Stadia and Microsoft xCloud are the way to go. Some might prefer to have more direct control by owning and running the games themselves while still having the freedom to do it anywhere. That is exactly what AMD is putting on the table with the Adrenalin 2020 Edition of its Radeon Desktop Software bringing untethered remote access to PC games, provided you have the bandwidth to use.
