Not to be outdone by NVIDIA's recent GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 Core release, AMD is preparing a salvaged GPU of their own. According to reports from Chinese forums, the new card will be branded Radeon HD 6930, and based on Cayman. The HD 6930 will fill in the gap between HD 6870
AMD is reportedly preparing a media event next Monday, December 5th, to present their next-gen 28nm GPUs – to be branded Radeon HD 7000 series. While this is not going to be a release day, more information about the much anticipated HD 7000 is expected to finally be presented to the media.
We haven't even reached a stage where you can buy a single PCI Express 3.0 add-in card, yet the PCI-SIG isn't resting on its laurels as the company has just announced version 4.0 of the PCI Express specification. As you might expect PCI Express 4.0 is bringing twice the bandwidth compared to PCI Express 3.0,
Japanese website 4Gamer has revealed a detailed roadmap for NVIDIA's upcoming 28nm Kepler GPU line-up for desktops. As previously rumoured, the Kepler roll out will indeed be bottom-to-top, starting with the mainstream GK107 chip in Q2 2012 to the high-end GK110/2 parts later in the year. All Kepler GPUs are manufacted at TSMC's 28nm, use

In the dispute between HTC Corporation and Apple Inc., the US International Trade Commission (US ITC) ruled in the favor of Apple, which is a reversal of the original decision. It turns out that Apple received a secret helper in the form of Advanced Micro Devices.
It's taken nearly a year longer than DisplayLink envisaged, but now the first display adapters featuring its new DL-3100 USB 3.0 chips are starting to arrive and first out are Japanese I-O Data. We were expecting a lot of new features from DisplayLink, but it seems like at least the first devices have little new
A lot of media outlets posted stories based on mythical business strategy that was supposed to be revealed on November 9th, 2011. We have seen rumors about ARM processors, "the new AMD" etc. The truth is a bit different – and you might already know it.
NVIDIA has reported financial results for their Q3 FY2012, for the period Aug 1st 2011 to Oct 31st 2011. Compared to the previous quarter, revenue increased by 5% to $1.07 billion, with net income up by 17% to $178.3 million. That is also more than double net income compared to Q3 FY2011.
It's somewhat amusing when you consider how far ahead of actual product availability that ARM announces upcoming solutions, although as an IP only company ARM might not have a lot of direct competitors when it comes to its CPU cores, but today's upcoming GPU announcement is an entirely different kettle of fish. As ARM allows
NVIDIA is preparing to debut the GeForce 600 generation on 6th December, with mainstream mobile GeForce 600M GPUs. First in line will be GeForce 610M, GeForce GT 630M and GeForce GT 635M. If these names sound familiar, it is because they were leaked in a beta driver last month. However, these "new" chips are most
Last month, we first broke news of the GTX 560 Ti 448 Core. Sweclockers have now leaked detailed specifications for the upcoming GTX 560 Ti 448 Core. As revealed before, the GTX 560 448 is indeed a crippled GTX 570. However, surprisingly, it features identical clocks to the GTX 570, and reportedly a slightly higher
AMD's long awaited next-gen 28nm GPU is finally set to release in January 2012, according to a report from Fudzilla. AMD announced during its latest financial conference call that the first next-gen GPUs were to ship by the end of 2011. Whether this shipment was for a Dec 2011 launch or in anticipation of an
According to a report from Fudzilla, AMD will be able to supply next-gen 28nm GPUs in mass quantities only in 2012. At its last conference call, AMD confirmed that the next-gen GPUs will ship by the end of the year, although the actual general release still remains a matter of speculation.
Call them Processor Graphics, as Intel do, or Accelerated Processing Units (APU) as per AMD, chips combining GPUs and CPUs are starting to dominate overall graphics shipments. In Q3, as a result of Sandy Bridge's massive success, Intel's jumped to a 60% market share in graphics shipment. AMD held on to 23% which NVIDIA, left
At their last conference call for Q2 2011, AMD revealed that 28nm GPUs were on track for 2011. Moving forward to the Q3 2011 financial report, AMD still plans plans to ship for revenue the first next-gen GPUs by the end of the year.
Last month AMD revised its Q3 forecasts, much to the disdain of its shareholders, with AMD's stocks taking a nosedive. As it turns out, the forecast revisions, which suggested revenues of $1.65B were off the mark. AMD has instead reported revenues of $1.69 billion and net income of $110 million.
There have been no shortage of code name / branding leaks for next-gen GPUs in the last few weeks. To add to the list, not surprisingly, GK104 is in the works. This chip will form the basis for N14E mobile Quadro GPUs. On the AMD side, the already reported Tahiti desktop GPU will also arrive
