AI is the elephant in the room
First of all, I want to apologise to all the hard-working people that worked so many hours on the production and material of the keynote, this is not about you. Everyone did a great job, but the content picked was mostly just utterly boring.
More holes than Blackburn Lancashire
Chipzilla has patched several high-severity vulnerabilities in its graphics drivers for Windows 10, which could lead to code execution.
About what everyone expected
The chipmaker named after a Roman vengeance daemon, Nvidia, expects revenues for its fiscal 2020 year to be “flat or down slightly” from the $11.7 billion it recorded in the just-ended fiscal year.
Brings default Adaptive Sync support on some monitors
As promised and detailed earlier, Nvidia has released its newest Geforce 417.71 WHQL graphics driver which brings support for the Geforce RTX 2060 graphics cards as well as brings the so-called G-Sync Compatible Support, or VESA Adaptive Sync support on some monitors.
From Teraflops to Petaflops
Intel organized an architecture day on the late Robert Noyce’s estate, a founder of Fairchild Semiconductor and Intel, a $22 million estate where Intel used to have its board meetings. At this symbolic landmark, Intel’s Raja Koduri, Jim Keller, Murthy as well as dozen other engineers gave the press an overview in 10nm, future GPUs, FPGAs and server products.
Darren Mcphee joins Intel's Discrete Graphics group
It appears that some ex-AMD chaps have managed to draw in yet another ex-AMD guy to Intel, with Darren McPhee joining the blue camp as the Product Marketing Manager in Intel's Discrete Graphics group.
And Chipzilla promises better performance
Intel has updated its graphics driver, bringing both support for new games like Strange Brigade and Pro Evolution Soccer 2019, performance improvements for some games like World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth and Jurrasic World Evolution, as well as some security fixes and improvements.
One to have for Strange Brigade and F1 2018
AMD has officially released its new Radeon Software Adrenalin Edition 18.8.2 driver which fixes some bugs and brings optimizations for Strange Brigade and F1 2018 games.
One to have for World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth on Intel IGP
Intel has started to keep up with new games by releasing a new graphics driver update whenever there is a major launch, and World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth is no exception.
Brings fixes and improvements for several games
While you might not get a high FPS on extreme resolutions, Intel's iGPUs still hold a high percentage on Steam hardware survey, so there are plenty of users playing games on it, therefore it is good to see that Intel has started to more actively update its graphics drivers and bring support and bug fixes, including the latest Intel Graphics Driver for Windows 10 version 126.96.36.19994.
