AMD is prepping Integer Scaling for its Radeon graphics card drivers

AMD is preparing to add integer scaling into its graphics drivers, if the recent linux driver patches are anything to go by. There are multiple entries in the patch archives for October showing AMD devs working to implement the oft-requested feature, and with the big AMD Adrenalin driver update likely to drop in December I wouldn’t be surprised if integer scaling was one of the new features being prepped for it. read more

Lisa Su confirms AMD Ryzen 4000 chips will be “coming in early 2020”

AMD CEO, Dr. Lisa Su, has confirmed that the red team’s next generation Ryzen 4000 Renoir APUs will be launching early next year. We expect that means January’s annual Vega techgasm, CES, will be featuring a whole load of AMD-based laptops to kick off the new year in style. The new Ryzen 4000 7nm mobile processors will be based on the current Zen 2 processor architecture, but it’s the choice of graphics component that we still don’t 100% know about within the new APUs. read more

AMD financial miss is good news… it means it’s spending big on CPU and GPU R&D

MSI registers six RX 5500 XT graphics cards, including overclocked GPUs

More AMD RX 5500 XT graphics cards have appeared in the EEC database, with MSI registering six different versions of the mainstream Navi GPU, including specific overclocked SKUs. Though the listing was published today it does bear saying that it also includes references to GTX 1650 Ti SKUs too, and the latest, very reliable, rumours doing the rounds suggest that there will be no such card. The GTX 1650 Super will reportedly take its place in the Nvidia GeForce stable. read more

Official AMD document leaks bizarre 8-core Ryzen 7 CPU

A listing for an AMD Ryzen 7 3750X processor has shown up in an official document on the company’s website. While far from confirmation that this silicon oddity will ever make it into your PC or our best CPUs for gaming guide, the red team looks to be considering an eight-core/16-thread processor somewhere in between two of its most similar processors: the Ryzen 7 3700X and Ryzen 7 3800X. read more
