Ryzen in Q1 and Vega in Q2
AMD has announced its Q4 financial results reporting a revenue of US $1.11 billion and an operating loss of three million dollars, which is still way better than financial analysts expected and has once again confirmed that both Ryzen CPUs and Vega-based GPUs are on track.
Snapdragon 835 vs Snapdragon 820
Keith Kressin, senior VP of product management at Qualcomm, told the world that the Snapdragon 835 has 25 percent better graphics compared to Snapdragon 820.
No details but it runs Star Wars Battlefront
Although the big event is scheduled to start in about 16 hours, AMD already has a running system with Ryzen CPU and Vega GPU at the CES 2017 show floor.
Beginning of a new error
Today will be a big day at CES but instead of the traditional keynote speaker from Intel or Microsoft, the event is going to be kicked off by the understated CEO of Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang.
Most likely a dual-GPU Polaris
A mystery AMD GPU has been spotted in the Ashes of the Singularity benchmark database, which goes in line with previous rumors that AMD is possibly preparing a new graphics card, called the RX 490.
Tweaked to fool the benchmarks
While the Tame Apple Press has been praising the GPU performance innovations of the iPhone 7’s new A10 Fusion chip, they might have been fooling themselves.
Beancounters working for Jon Peddie Research (JPR) have added up some numbers and divided by their shoe size and worked out that AMD is clawing back the GPU market from the outfit named after a Roman vengeance daemon, Nvidia.
DGX SaturnV with its Tesla P100s
The GPU maker named after a Roman vengeance daemon, Nvidia, has been patting itself on the back over the DGX SaturnV, which it says is the most energy efficient supercomputer of all time.
Return of the GPU Jedi
Nvidia, as you have seen, did an amazing job gaining a lot of the GPU high end and mainstream market. Pascal worked out great on the desktop and notebook, but it would be naive to expect that AMD is not going to come back with a vengeance.
There is more to life than pixels
Nvidia just announced its fiscal Q3 2017 (not a typo Ed.) and the company reported record revenue of $2 billion, up 54 percent from a year ago. This is finally proof that Nvidia is more than a GPU outfit, as it finally expanded beyond its core business - gaming and professional graphics.
