AMD Is Considering A Split Of Its Server And Graphics Businesses: Report

It comes as no surprise the AMD in struggling in the face of fierce opposition on two fronts. Intel has a firm grasp on the CPU and integrated graphics markets, while NVIDIA continues to outplay it in the enthusiast 3D arena. The company has already downsized in an effort to stay competitive, but it looks like it might be taking things a step further by splitting itself in two.


AMD's New Fury Graphics Cards: Tiny But Powerful

AMD has finally announced its new high-end Fury graphics cards at an E3 2015 extravaganza, and they look pretty impressive — and should bring AMD back into competition with Nvidia’s 900-Series GeForce cards. More interestingly, they’re actually really small.


AMD's Carrizo: Huge Performance Boosts For Everyday Laptops

We don’t all buy ridiculously powerful notebooks. Gaming PCs, sure, but not notebooks. Normal laptops — y’know, the ones you can buy in Harvey Norman and your local computer store, the ones that cost a thousand dollars and not five thousand — are far more common, but we don’t give them as much love as we should.

AMD has just taken the covers off its latest high-performance notebook APU, called Carrizo, and the under-the-hood improvements are genuinely amazing. Say hello to double the battery life of last year’s laptops, as well as almost double the computing power.


AMD's New Desktop APU Is A 12-Core Monster

AMD has a new top-end APU — that’s accelerated processing unit, if you didn’t know, combining a high performance CPU with a high performance integrated graphics chipset — in the A10-7870K. Built to go inside your next mainstream desktop PC purchase, it’s just as small as any other CPU, but has some serious graphics grunt under the hood — more than enough to beat a mainstream Intel chip and standalone graphics card.


AMD's New Laptop CPUs And GPUs Are For Gaming On The Go

If you’re buying a new laptop any time soon, the usual wisdom just got a shake-up. AMD has just launched a bunch of new low-power CPUs and discrete graphics chips that will be appearing in plenty of mainstream laptops, and they’re a genuine contender for Intel’s Core i3 and Core i5 — especially if you’re thinking about playing any games.


AMD FreeSync: Australian Review

If you’re a gamer, stuttering and weird frame rate issues are an unfortunate part of everyday life. Technologies like V-Sync go a long way towards fixing the problem, but don’t completely solve what is a hardware issue that exists within the way that monitors refresh and display video frames. But gnash your teeth in anguish no more — AMD’s FreeSync makes everything nice and smooth.


AMD Radeon R9 285 Review: The New $250 Video Card To Beat

With the series having already exploded onto the market this year, a new Radeon 200 graphics card may not make for the most exciting headline, but this one is a little different than most other Radeon 200s considering it isn’t a rebadged HD 7000. Codenamed “Tonga Pro”, the new Radeon R9 285 takes the latest technology from the R9 290 range and makes it more affordable.


AMD Radeon R7 SSD: Australian Review

AMD is getting into the SSD game. Its Radeon SSDs join Radeon graphics cards, RAM and AMD’s own performance and mainstream CPUs and APUs, making it possible to build an all-AMD scratch-built PC. The new mid-range Radeon R7 SSDs are aimed at the mainstream gamer — one without a huge amount of cash to throw away, but just enough to upgrade to new components on a semi-regular basis.


AMD's New Radeon SSDs Appeal To The Average Gamer

Mirroring the arguments over Xbox versus PlayStation, Mac versus PC, and Coke versus Pepsi, PC gamers have their own perpetual debate: AMD or Intel? (And, by extension, Radeon versus GeForce.) If you come down on the AMD side of things, you’ll soon be able to kit your gaming PC out with a new branded component: AMD is getting into the SSD game.


HP's Stream 14 Is A $US200 Windows-Powered Chromebook Competitor

In order to combat the continued sales growth of ultra-cheap Chromebooks, Microsoft and PC manufacturers are offering Windows machines at comparable $US200 prices. We knew this was coming, but now a leak of the upcoming HP Stream 14 gives us our first look at what these laptops will actually be.
