  • Another Dell ultraportable, this one AMD-based (and cheaper)

    Last week we saw a nice little semi-rugged ultraportable (or notelet, as I like to say) introduced by Dell, and although it seemed just a little underpowered for the price, its build quality might make up for it. And here we have another ultraportable, an Inspiron, showing up on Dell Singapore. Powered by the newest mobile AMD chipset and Neo processors and the usual… Read More

  • Apple in talks with AMD? Set relationship status to "it's complicated"


    AMD reps have been seen zooming around the Apple campus, taking meetings and presumably hawking their wares. With the recent MacBook Pro update proudly proclaiming the power of the Core i5 and i7 processors inside, and the work with Intel and NVIDIA to produce seamless hybrid graphics acceleration, it seems a rather odd time to be window-shopping with other vendors. But Apple has always been… Read More

  • Hey, AMD's doing just fine too! Recession over!


    Yesterday we learned that Intel tore it up during the first quarter of 2010. Good for them, but what about longtime rival AMD? Turns out they’re doing nicely as well, with record quarter revenue and signs of general recovery for the semiconductor business. I won’t get into the details (check the Register) but it looks like the daring footwork done over the last couple years is… Read More

  • New AMD processor details leak

    Oops! Looks like someone accident let some information out early. AMDs “Thuban” processors will be out next month, and there wasn’t a whole lot of information out there until recently. Turns out that somebody talked. Well, at least someone’s BIOS talked. Read More

  • AMD working on actual netbook chipset, not due until next year

    AMD is finally looking to get into the netbook game for real. Forget about the thin-and-light NEO chipset that’s been out for a while—we’re talking about an honest, netbook-specific chipset based on the company’s Fusion initiative that’ll blend power-sipping CPUs with ATI graphics. The platform will draw between 10 and 15 watts of power and will be designed… Read More

  • AMD giving away 10 360s, 10 Wiis

    AMD is wrapping up their 40 year anniversary party, and they are finishing it up in a big way. Previously, AMD gave away some processors and graphic cards. This time, they are giving away some consoles. Read More

  • Intel vs. AMD: the battle will continue as AMD pays down debt


    Not that you guys need to hear everything about the paydowns and “outstanding senior notes,” but you might like to know that AMD isn’t going to bite the dust any time soon. With $1.2bn in Intel blood money going straight into debt reduction, the other chipmaker should be able to continue making hardware for years. That’s good, because I’d hate to see them lose… Read More

  • AMD breaks 7GHz barrier with liquid helium and nu-metal

    A while back I went to a fun overclocking event held by AMD, where there was a lot of vapor, some exploding burritos, and some overclocking that got tantalizingly close to 7GHz. It was just an arbitrary number, and they broke a bunch of other records, but they couldn’t quite hit that last target. But a few months and I can only guess how much liquid helium later, they nailed it. Read More

  • Cool IT shows off liquid cooling kit for AMD

    Water cooling is where it’s at, currently. Any gamer will tell you that keeping your PC cool is critical for making sure you computer runs smoothly and effectively. The issue is, it’s a pain in the butt to set up. It looks like Cool IT intends to help us with that problem. Read More

  • AMD’s low-voltage ‘Congo’ platform due soon?

    Not content to sit back and let Intel have all the ultra low voltage fun, AMD’s low voltage Congo platform is apparently due in the coming weeks – late October or early November, according to DigiTimes. Read More

  • AMD's Eyefinity reviewed on video for your pleasure

    Some day, I too will have three identical monitors for gaming purposes. It’ll have to be in my game cave once I retire as an eccentric millionaire, though. Don’t have room for it here. That’s probably a good thing, though, since I also don’t have the money required, and besides that there are still a few quirks to be worked out. Not to mention the fact that the best… Read More
