AMD’s CEO Lisa Su revealed that AMD’s upcoming Carrizo APU will deliver the largest ever generational leap on performance per watt for mainstream APUs ever! In addition, she also confirmed that Carrizo will be launched in the second half of the year.

A new report claims that AMD’s next generation R9 390X will launch in Q2 of this year and will have 4096 GCN cores as well as 4GB of 3D stacked HBM. The report comes from Sweclockers, who has been proven to be quite accurate in the past, but we still have to say this is a rumor because it cannot be confirmed.
With typical AMD fashion, the worlds first FreeSync enabled monitor is hitting shelves and is a massive $170 cheaper than it’s nearly identical Nvidia G-Sync counterpart. If you’re not familiar, last year Nvidia debuted the concept of G-Sync which involves matching the refresh rate of your monitor to the frame rate being produced by the GPU.
According to a new report from WCCFTech, both AMD’s and NVIDIA’s upcoming next-generation GPUs could be delayed, at least the 16 nm or 20 nm versions. For the past 3 years the GPU industry has been stuck on the 28 nm process and while 2014 did bring in TSMC’s 20 nm process much of the early 20 nm process capacity has been given to major clients like Qualcomm and Apple.
Sapphire is teasing a new liquid cooled AMD graphics card in their latest video on YouTube. There are many speculations, but could this be the R9 390X? Sapphire is calling this “Project NFC” with NFC standing for “Not from Concentrate”. NFC in the food industry means that water has been extracted form the juice of a fruit.
Nintendo is working on a new next-generation console that will succeed the Wii U. Nintendo is reacting to lower sales and its competitive edge compared to current consoles like the Playstation 4 and Xbox One. Many reports suggest that Nintendo might change-course in the direction of its console business much like it did with the original Wii. The company could come up with a system that is focused on serious gaming, but still retain that original “fun” quality. So the console could be more NES-like than Wii-like.
A user on the Chiphell forums has posted some very interesting benchmarks. Now before we continue we would say to take this information with a grain of salt as we cannot verify it and we have seen fakes before in the past. The Chiphell user posted benchmarks of a supposed AMD Bermuda (R9 390X), AMD Fiji (R9 380X), a NVIDIA GM200 (Titan 2) and a NVIDIA GM200 cut-down version (GTX 980 Ti?). Of course these would all have to be engineering samples of the cards.
