Already during Q1 2018

AMD's Ryzen CPUs have been a huge success during this year and the company is planning for a new series of CPUs. According to AMD, we will see a Zen 1 refresh before the jump to Zen 2 architecture. It's still not clear what kind of CPUs we should expect with upcoming Ryzen series.



Added support and fixed issues

It seems like we are spending more time updating drivers than playing new games lately. During the past month we have received four new AMD drivers and it's more or less the same with NVIDIA. AMD has released the latest update to their Radeon GPU drivers, the Radeon Software Adrenalin Edition 17.12.1. This version should give gamers immersive gameplay and more social features.


Upcoming Ryzen Mobile APU will feature Qualcomm LTE modem

AMD has announced that it will be working with Qualcomm to create ultrathin laptops with LTE connectivity. According the first information, the upcoming Ryzen mobile processors will sport Qualcomm Snapdragon X16 LTE modem. This is a great news both for AMD and Qualcomm, they are aiming to push the "Always Connected PC" as a necessity for the future.


Rumored to be an APU

With the launch of AMD Vega line of graphics cards, many have speculated about potential mid-range and low-budget cards. This became known as Vega 11, which might actually be here sooner than you think, but not as discrete graphics card.


Two versions are now available

AMD has stealthily updated its German website with new specifications for its Radeon RX 560 graphics cards. AMD's website now shows that there are two RX 560 graphics cards available. The new one comes with 896 stream processors, which is 128 cores short of the original specification of 1'024 stream processors.



More support for Doom VFR

It seems like we are spending more time updating drivers than playing new games lately. During the past month we have received several new AMD drivers and it's more or less the same with NVIDIA. AMD has just released its Radeon Software Crimson ReLive Edition 17.11.4 graphics driver software. This version should offer better support for Doom VFR and the the open beta of Oculus' Dash software.




More support for RX Vega

It seems like we are spending more time updating drivers than playing new games lately. During the past month we have received four new AMD drivers and it's more or less the same with NVIDIA. AMD has just released its Radeon Software Crimson ReLive Edition 17.11.3 graphics driver software. This version should offer better support for RX Vega graphics cards.



Faster than NVIDIA GTX 1080

Yesterday Futuremark has unveiled the Cyan Room benchmark, its latest virtual reality focussed benchmark for the VRMark software. During the last weeks, AMD has been pushing for higher VR performance on its GPUs and it seems that Vega can be a very quick card in this new benchmark.



Support for Star Wars: Battlefront II

It seems like we are spending more time updating drivers than playing new games lately. During the past month we have received four new AMD drivers and it's more or less the same with NVIDIA. AMD has just released its Radeon Software Crimson ReLive Edition 17.11.2 graphics driver software. This version should offer better support for Star Wars: Battlefront II.


Support for Call of Duty: WWII

It seems like we are spending more time updating drivers than playing new games lately. During the past month we have received four new AMD drivers and it's more or less the same with NVIDIA. AMD has just released its Radeon Software Crimson ReLive Edition 17.11.1 graphics driver software. This version should offer better support for Call of Duty: WWII.


Two models available

AMD has announced that its Ryzen Mobile processors (Raven Ridge) will be available in laptops for the holiday season. The processors feature Zen compute cores paired with Radeon "Vega" graphics cores in an SoC design. According to AMD, the upcoming Raven Ridge should be up to 44% faster in multi-threaded CPU performance and 161% more graphics performance than Intel's new Kaby Lake Refresh mobile processors.


Support for three new games

It seems like we are spending more time updating drivers than playing new games lately. During the past month we have received three new AMD drivers and it's more or less the same with NVIDIA. AMD has just released its Radeon Software Crimson ReLive Edition 17.10.2 graphics driver software. This version should offer better support for Destiny 2, Assassin's Creed Origins and adds Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus optimisations too.



Revenues up 26 per cent

A few hours ago, AMD published its latest set of financials. The results from Q3 2017 look solid with a 26% revenue growth observed year-over-year. Furthermore, we saw the first operating profits in three years ($71 million), compared with a loss of $406 million the past year. Wall Street wasn't that pleased with the progress and according to them lower revenues would be seen in Q4. For this reason, AMD shares have plummeted by 12% in afterhours trading.


What about a Vega refresh?

AMD has had two amazing years and the current 2017 is even better due to the big success of Ryzen and Ryzen Threadripper processors. With this two platforms, AMD is now catching up on Intel especially in the retail market. While on the CPU side AMD is becoming stronger, what about their GPUs?

Comes with AMD RAIDXpert package

One of the most interesting features about AMD's X399 platform is the fact that there are 64 PCIe lanes. While 4 lanes are dedicated to the chipset, the other 60 lanes are for PCIe devices such as graphics cards, a sound card and apparently NVMe SSDs. When AMD launched Ryzen Threadripper, support for NVMe RAID was missing on this platform. Nevertheless it looks like AMD did it’s homework and meanwhile the X399 platform is capable of handling NVMe RAID.


Up to 28 GB/s

It looks like Roman "der8auer" has done another one of his “insane” tests. A few weeks ago AMD announced that their X399 platform now supports NVMe M.2 RAID. In that context Roman must have thought it would be a fun idea to see how much throughput can be achieve using as many M.2 NVMe SSDs as possible creating one massive RAID.



Added support and issues fixed

AMD has released the latest update to their Radeon GPU drivers, the Crimson ReLive Edition 17.9.3. Just a few days after the last WHQL driver has been launched, this new version goes online. As always support for new games has been added and issues have been fixed.


Available in two years

TechPowerUp has come across a few interesting slides on the Spanish website Informatica Cero. One of them actually shows a CPU roadmap for AMD's next generation of Zen processors. Pinnacle Ridge, which is the successor's code name, is supposed to be manufactured using 12nm technology instead of the current 14nm node.



Added support and issues fixed

AMD has released the latest update to their Radeon GPU drivers, the Crimson ReLive Edition 17.9.2. Just a few days after the last WHQL driver has been launched, this new version goes online. As always support for new games has been added and issues have been fixed.
