Chipmaker AMD is looking to hire a CPU performance engineer to help optimize the company's graphics drivers with an eye to improve CPU gaming performance.
AMD continues the trend of getting more performance out of its silicon per watt with the new 1Ghz dual-core GX-210JA - but this is one SoC that you'll never see in a PC.
Where will the next big leaps in performance and power efficiency come from? Increasingly, the industry is looking toward a concept known as heterogeneous computing to save the day. This week, AMD revealed new features of its Heterogeneous Systems Architecture.
The feature promises faster processor speeds when a hybrid device is used with its keyboard, while improving battery life for tablet use.
AMD is the first to unveil its Open Compute Project "open source" motherboard. Called the Open 3.0, the board is suitable for cloud server, storage servers, and high-performance computing clusters.
AMD has announced its latest entry in the performance tablet and small form factor PC market -- the Z-60 chip, dubbed "Hondo."
AMD has promised its new chip offering will provide consumers with high-definition media performance, enhanced gaming and accelerated app use in time for the upcoming Windows 8 tablet.
AMD gave a series of talks this week at an annual chip conference that together provide a glimpse into its future processors for everything from low-power mobile devices to high-performance desktops.
The Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition beats Nvidia's GeForce GTX 680, but only by about 2 percent overall.
AMD's five new processors offer 100 MHz of better performance over their predecessors without any increase in power.
Apple, once again, has secured another injunction against an Android manufacturer. This time, a repeat performance from Motorola, and specifically a 'slide-to-unlock' patent.
After my disappointing experience with the Samsung 305U, I am still looking around for a newer generation netbook/sub-notebook. The basis of my search is that I want an AMD/ATI based system, because I believe it gives good performance, good screen resolution (typically 1366x768) and an HDMI display port.
AMD has updated its A-Series line of processors for mainstream laptops and desktops with new chips it says operate at faster speeds, deliver better graphics performance and include other enhancements.
Today is the day that Intel widens the CPU performance gap between itself and AMD with the release of Sandy Bridge-E processors, an update of its Extreme Edition chips using the company's latest and greatest microarchitecture.The centerpiece of the new rollout is the Core i7-3960X Extreme Edition, a six-core 3.
If you're looking forward to improved performance from Intel's tiny Atom processors -- used to power netbooks and tablets -- the company has plans to deliver it. In fact, the chip giant says future versions will match the performance of AMD's desktop Phenom II chips.
The latest dust-up in the AMD-versus-Intel never-ending conflict concerns BAPCo, a consortium of tech companies that releases a set of benchmarks, including, most importantly, SYSmark. This week, AMD quit the BAPCo board, and speculation over why has run rampant ever since.
The chip leaders have pulled out of the BapCo industry benchmark, after years of complaints by AMD that the application performance evaluation favours Intel
After showing it off at the recent Computex show, Powercolor has officially released its HD6870X2, which combines two AMD Radeon HD 6870 high-performance GPUs on a single card. It will compete with other dual-GPU boards like the Radeon HD 6990, Nvidia GeForce GTX 590, and the forthcoming Asus Mars II, though according to Fudzilla, it will undercut their pricing by being offered at $449.
AMD has barely rolled out its new A-series of Accelerated Processing Units, a.k.
