One question gamers often raise is how GPU performance evolves as cards age. Ongoing security patches related to Spectre have also raised concerns about CPU frame rates. We investigate across both AMD and Nvidia cards.
A small startup received $25M in funding for a chip it claims is both faster than Intel’s Xeon and smaller than ARM’s Cortex family. That’s quite a pair of claims.
We’ve just finished the most intense period of benchmarking in my career to date. So what else do you guys want to know? What questions do you have about Navi, Zen 2, or their various products? What kind of comparisons would you like to see?
Samsung and Nvidia are partnering up on 7nm, with signs that the Korean foundry may be Nvidia’s primary or sole provider, rather than TSMC.
AMD’s long-awaited 7nm Navi is here — and its new, RDNA architecture is a significant improvement on what AMD has previously fielded in GPUs.
Nvidia has launched its new RTX 2060 Super, RTX 2070 Super, and (upcoming) the RTX 2080 Super. These new cards all offer improved performance at (mostly) the same price.
The DisplayPort 2.0 standard is finished, with support for 8K displays (stretching all the way to 16K in the future), and new efficiency and visual fidelity features.
Intel may tap Samsung for some work at 14nm, possibly as late as 2021, if recent rumors are true.
AMD’s new RDNA architecture is a major advancement over and above GCN. If it delivers the improvements AMD has promised, it’ll be the company’s most important GPU launch since 2012. Let’s take a look at what AMD has brought to the table.
AMD announced its Navi graphics cards and RDNA architecture at E3, with substantial improvements in both raw performance and performance per watt.
