AMD Fiji XT GPU Teaser


There is no doubt that AMD and NVIDIA will launch their ‘latest and greatest’ graphics cards in June 2015. While the exact schedule is lacking details, it is rumored that both companies will split their unveilings between Computex Taipei 2015 (June 2-5) and E3 2015 (June 16-18). AMD recently fired the first salvo, with a teaser trailer for its upcoming Fiji XT graphics card, high end model for the otherwise rebranded number of GPUs belonging to the ‘300’ series. As you can see on a leaked image from TechPowerUp, this board is going to be quite smaller than the previous high-end cards, even though it is

SK.Hynix Enables 1TB of Processor Memory with a 128GB DDR4 Module


Back in 2003, AMD introduced the Opteron processor, world’s first 64-bit x86 processor capable of addressing more than 4GB of memory (32-bit) – no less than massive 1TB of memory, courtesy of its 40-bit allocation table. Processors of today are capable of addressing up to 8TB of SDRAM memory thanks to extended (46-bit) allocation table. However, until now, finding a high-capacity memory module with 32GB density was as rare as finding hen’s teeth and usually you would pay top dollar for it. Upcoming 20nm manufacturing process enabled the creation of ultra-dense memory modules and with SK.Hynix launching its 20nm 8Gbit memory chip, there was no

ATI and Nvidia cards for 2009 will be monsters

As the 2008 is drawing to a close, our thoughts are turning towards 2009 and what incredible hardware will come at our doorsteps. Upcoming year will bring a breeze of competitiveness, with AMD and Intel fighting for enthusiasts hearts and minds in the world of CPUs. GPUs will see a tough three-way battle between AMD GPG (ex-ATI), Nvidia and newcomer Intel with its Larrabee cGPU. But one of main building block was launched yesterday, in 2008. Hynix introduced a chip with a friendly and “easily understandable” name: H5GQ1H24AFR. Even though the name looks like something that ENIGMA would encrypt, we’re talking about 128MB (1Gbit) memory
