Last week when Microsoft announced the Surface Book they made a couple of very bold claims about the new device. First was, “Ounce-for-ounce, pound-for-pound, this is the fastest 13-inch laptop ever made anywhere on any planet”. And the second took a shot at Apple saying, “2x more powerful than a MacBook Pro”.
AMD’s Radeon R9 Nano is expected to launch very soon, maybe even this week! This card is based on AMD’s Fiji silicon and has had quite a lot of hype since it was first announced. At the company’s most recent “Hot Chips” presentation AMD released for interesting numbers related to the card.
The first 3DMark benchmarks for AMD’s upcoming Radeon Fury have been revealed by the guys over at VideoCardz. These benchmarks have been taken from 3DMark’s database which has tested and validated several new cards. These tests include 3DMark’s FireStrike Extreme and FireStrike Ultra benchmarks.
Someone with access to a Radeon Fury card put it through the CompuBench suite and submitted its score to the suites online score database. The card is being run on pre-launch drivers and is simply being read as “AMD Radeon Graphics Processor” by the suite, but if you look at the info tab it does say “Fiji”, and more importantly it shows the card has 64 Compute Units.
Benchmarks have hit the web featuring AMD’s upcoming R9 390X, NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 980 Ti and an mysterious unconfirmed GTX 9xx card has also appeared in the benchmark listings! Here we can get a better idea of performance of the GTX Titan X, GTX 980 Ti, and AMD’s Radeon R9 390X. The unconfirmed GTX 9xx card we are guessing could be a GTX 960 Ti or GTX 965.
Well it was only a matter of time, here are the first benchmarks of NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX Titan X graphics card. Someone had access to four of these card and installed them on a system powered by a Core i7-5960X and compared single GPU and 4-way SLI performance on 3DMark 11 with its “Extreme” preset.
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.
The first benchmark of the iPhone 6 has been revealed and it shows only a small improvement over the iPhone 5s. The first iPhone 6 benchmark is from the GPU testing Basemark X suite from Rightware. In the benchmark we can see that the iPhone 6 scores 21,204 points compared to the iPhone 5s’s 20,253.
Here are the first pictures of a partner branded NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 graphics cards, it is the Galaxy GeForce GTX 970 GC. The images were spotted on Chinese PC enthusiast forums and social networks. The images were not the only thing that was leaked, but we have specifications and even a few benchmarks.
