A couple of new AMD roadmap slides have leaked courtesy of Guru3D. The new slides are marked ‘AMD Corporate Deck-September 2019’ so they’re nice and up to date, whilst their content appears to be geared towards investors.
AMD has issued a statement on the state of the boost frequency issues surrounding its 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen processors. During a survey it emerged the vast majority of AMD Ryzen 3000 series processor owners were failing to hit the advertise turbo speeds, even on just a single core.
LG has teamed up with Nvidia for what could well end up being the ultimate series of gaming televisions. The 2019 OLED TV models from LG (model 65/55E9, model 77/65/55C9) will be updated with support for Nvidia’s G-Sync variable refresh rate technology.
It’s rumour time once again in the world of graphics cards and it looks as if Nvidia is planning to bolster its line-up of mid-range GeForce GTX 16 Series graphics cards with two new arrivals.
If you’re the sort of person who’s so rich you don’t have to check your bank balance on a weekly/daily/hourly basis, you may just be the sort of person who could be interested in Nvidia’s monstrous new laptop GPU. Unveiled yesterday, the mobile Quadro RTX 6000 is the fastest laptop graphics chip in existence.
Nvidia and Square Enix’s Luminous Productions have teamed up to present ‘Back Stage’, a new real-time tech demo showing off fill path-traced ray traced. It’s been created using the Luminous Engine and the footage is powered by a single Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Ti graphics card.
UPDATE: Following the survey publicised yesterday, AMD has issued a statement addressing the widespread failure of its AMD Ryzen 3000 series processors to hit the advertised boost clock speeds.
AMD has emerged as the big winner in the latest global graphics card report from Jon Peddie Research. According to JPR’s analysis, AMD has clawed back 9.4% of worldwide desktop GPU sales quarter on quarter from Nvidia, earning a market share of 32.1% for Q2 2019, a rise of 41.4% from the 22.7% market share earned in the quarter prior.
The motherboard may steal the maternal name but the graphics card is arguably the core of any gaming PC these days. It's a computer in and of itself, designed for the purpose of running the resource hungry visual aspects of the modern game; therefore freeing the rest of the computer up to do what it needs to do, such as grabbing information from hard drives, connecting to the internet and passing data around, or crunching numbers that aren't related to the visuals and so on.
When we recently discussed what your price limit is on a new PC build, the majority of us said around $1000-1500. Of course a number of GD’ers said they would go above that, with a reasonable quantity of us saying $2000. But even more expressed that they would actually spend below $1K on a new gaming PC build.
A new challenger approaches! Chinese military-civilian (whatever the heck that is) electronic component designer Changsha Jingjia Microelectronics has confirmed it’s developing its own dedicated graphics cards. If you’ve never heard of them then that’s probably because they’ve been busy constructing chips for fighter jets over the past decade.
