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.

AMD Radeon Pro W5700 7nm GPU takes on NVIDIA in workstations

AMD Radeon Pro W5700 7nm GPU takes on NVIDIA in workstations

AMD is anything but timid when it comes to its ambitions to conquer the computing market. Not satisfied with challenging CPU giant Intel, AMD acquired ATI to take on the GPU Goliath that is NVIDIA. After shaking up the CPU market with its Zen architecture, it is doing the same with its RDNA architecture and Navi GPUs with moderate success. It is now bringing that success from the consumer graphics card market to the pro industry with the new Radeon Pro W7500, daring to encroach on a market long dominated by NVIDIA.

AMD Radeon RX 5700 GPU, 16-core Ryzen 9 3950X CPU debut at E3 2019

AMD Radeon RX 5700 GPU, 16-core Ryzen 9 3950X CPU debut at E3 2019

E3 is naturally focused on all the new titles and updates to make gamers drool but, also naturally, those games are only made possible by the hardware that runs them. Game streaming services promise to make client hardware less relevant but, until that day comes, gamers will continue to need the beefiest components for the most demanding games. It's no surprise, then, that AMD is using that opportunity to reveal its combo of a new RDNA-powered graphics card and third-gen Ryzen desktop processor to promise the ultimate gaming platform for PC enthusiasts among the E3 2019 crowd.

AMD Radeon VII benchmarks put 25 games through their paces

AMD Radeon VII benchmarks put 25 games through their paces

AMD made a variety of announcements during CES 2019, but perhaps the most exciting one was that of the Radeon VII. The new GPU, which is built using a 7nm process, is AMD's answer to NVIDIA's RTX 2080, but of course, most of what we know is limited to what AMD has told us so far. When the card was first announced, AMD actually listed benchmarks obtained from 25 different games, but they were doing a bit of hiding in AMD's announcement.

Acer Chromebook 315 is world’s first AMD-powered Chrome OS device

Acer Chromebook 315 is world’s first AMD-powered Chrome OS device

Up until recently, Chromebooks were mostly regarded to be the successors of netbooks, smaller or weaker cousins of laptops built for very basic use and low prices. In the past two years or so, the platform has outgrown that image and has branched not only into new form factors as well as more powerful hardware, the latter mostly made up of a very small number of Intel-powered devices. Not one to be left behind, AMD has teamed up with Acer to build the Acer Chromebook 315, the first of its kind to run not only on an AMD processor but also a Radeon graphics chip.

AMD Ryzen Pro now comes with built-in Radeon Vega graphics

AMD Ryzen Pro now comes with built-in Radeon Vega graphics

Onboard graphics chips have earned a not so good reputation for being near useless beyond basic display capabilities. That reputation is partly thanks to Intel who, until recently, hasn't exactly given its built-in GPUs much love. AMD, in contrast, is playing up its Radeon property, acquired from old NVIDIA rival ATI, to boost both its images and its graphics chops. It is putting those chops to work on the second gen Ryzen PRO processors for notebooks and desktops. And this time, AMD made sure it has some OEMs to cheer it on.

How AMD’s Combat Crate could jump-start your gaming PC build

How AMD’s Combat Crate could jump-start your gaming PC build

Building a new PC is an exciting time in any gamer's life, but at the moment, it can be a frustrating process. Trying to track down graphics cards at manufacturer-suggested prices can feel like a fool's errand at times, thanks to increased demand for GPUs from cryptocurrency miners. In addition, rounding up all of the parts you need can be a stressful process, but AMD may have found an answer to both problems with its new Combat Crate.

Intel gets its game on with Radeon RX Vega M, VR NUC

Intel might be receiving a lot of flak lately for the Meltdown and Spectre vulnerabilities, but the chip maker is unfazed and continues moving forward against all odds. Proof is that at CES, it revealed a new 8th gen Intel Core processor that lies in bed with long-time rival AMD to add a Radeon RX Vega M Graphics chip in the same package. Geared towards gamers, content creators, and graphics-intensive applications, this new processor powers Intel’s new NUC, making it the world’s smallest VR-capable computer.
