What is the sound of 16nm FinFET clapping
Amid rumours of Globalfoundries' slow 14nm FinFET yield, it appears that AMD has taken its Zen project to TSMC.
Has one hand clapping – but no ARM
AMD has said that its Zen engineers had total freedom to build a chip from scratch and come up with the best.
Things Chipzilla can do while AMD naps
Chipzilla might have caused slow PC sales at the beginning of the year to boost the price of its Skylake chips later.
Full-cover water block for Radeon R9 Nano
EK Water Blocks, a well known liquid cooling manufacturer from Slovenia, has released its newest full-cover water blocks designed for AMD's Radeon R9 Nano graphics card, the EK-FC R9 Nano.
With factory-overclocked GPU
While the Radeon R9 Fury X was the only graphics card in the Fury series shipping with AiO liquid cooler, this will apparently change as XFX is working on a Radeon R9 Fury (non-X) version that will feature a similar cooling system.
We don't need no outsiders
AMD spin off Globalfoundaries is apparently doing rather well and developed its own 7nm and 10nm fabrication processes.
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.
