Zen still sampling in 2016
AMD has not been doing that great and there are still a lot of changes happening to the company.
Something nice to say about the A-series
Results of an AMD carbon footprint analysis of its 6th Generation A-Series APU, codenamed "Carrizo", show that using the new processor can result in a 50 percent reduction in greenhouse gas emissions compared to the previous generation.
At least for now
AMD has confirmed that although it has a Linux driver for its Vulkan card it will initially be closed source.
With 256-bit memory interface
AMD's Radeon R9 380X will come in late October and will pack 4GB of GDDR5 memory with 256-bit memory interface.
Coming with fully enabled Tonga GPU
We already talked about a possible fully-enabled Tonga GPU back when Radeon R9 285 was launched, and now it appears that AMD has finally decided to launch such GPU which will be a part of Radeon R9 380X graphics card.
Exclusive: Talks taking place
Our industry sources claim that Microsoft is seriously talking to AMD about buying the chipmaker. The pair have been in talks for a while, but we are unsure if the deal is happening or when something will be announced.

Although officially launched in late August, the AMD Fiji GPU-based mini-ITX Radeon R9 Nano has now started to show up in retail/e-tail, priced at US $649 in the US and around €699 in Europe. The first reviews are coming in.
