  1. L'accidentale fuga di notizie proviene dal sito http://www.eteknix.com/goodbye-catalyst-control-center-hello-radeon-software-crimson-edition">Eteknix, ma alcuni, scaltri come delle faine, hanno catturato gli screen del nuovo sistema di controllo AMD Radeon che andrà a sostituire il celeberrimo Catalyst Control Center.
  2. I prossimi driver Catalyst 14.6 di AMD, integreranno, tra le varie cose, tra cui un boost per videogames come Watch Dogs, Thief e Murdered Soul Suspect, anche l'aggiornamento di Eyefinity con la versione 3.0, ovvero la tecnologia che si occupa della gestione e configurazione di un sistema multi monitor. http://www.xtremehardware.com/images/stories/AMD/News/catalyst-14.6-mixed-resolutions.png" target="_blank">
  3. Dopo aver completato la linea di schede grafiche della famiglia R7, AMD aggiunge anche un nuovo prodotto alla famiglia già allargata delle Raadeon R9 series: la AMD Radeon R9 280. Sulla falsariga della Radeon R9 280X, la R9 280 fornisce ai videogiocatori la potenza per apprezzare a pieno i gli ultimi giochi usciti alla risoluzione di 1080p.
  4. AMD rilascia quest'oggi la versione di driver, in formato beta, dei Catalyst 14.2, proprio nel giorno del lancio (almeno sul suolo americano) del videogioco Thief; solo una coincidenza? (cit), no, non proprio. Il videogame fa parte del programma AMD Gaming Evolved, quindi i driver appena usciti vanno proprio a migliorare le performance sul reboot di Thief.
  5. NVIDIA http://www.xtremehardware.com/news/videogames/nvidia-rilascia-i-beta-313-95-per-la-beta-di-crysis-3-201301288184/">ha rilasciato i driver beta 313.95 con un giorno d'anticipo rispetto all'uscita della beta di Crysis 3 Multiplayer, mentre AMD ha reso disponibile da ieri i suoi Catalyst 13.2 Beta.
  6. Dopo i vari aggiornamenti che gli ultimi driver beta 12.11 hanno avuto, AMD rilascia finalmente in versione stabile i nuovi Catalyst 13.1 per le famiglie Radeon HD 7000, HD 6000 e HD 5000. Oltre alle varie migliorie prestazionali per l'ultima serie HD 7000, sia per desktop che mobile, e per i vari bug fix, è stata modificata anche la pagina relativa alle impostazioni 3D del CCC, per avere un miglior controllo dei setting.
  7. AMD annuncia la sua partnership con Ubisoft® per supportare l’attesissimo Far Cry 3®. Sviluppato in collaborazione con il programma http://sites.amd.com/us/game/community/Pages/aboutgamingevolved.aspx">AMD Gaming Evolved, Far Cry 3 è ottimizzato per offrire un’esperienza gaming di alta qualità, sfruttando la potenza dei prodotti grafici AMD Radeon™ con supporto nativo per le tecnologie AMD Eyefinity e AMD CrossFire™, consentendo così esperienze di gaming multi-schermo e ad alte prestazioni. AMD e Ubisoft hanno quindi collaborato per migliorare ulteriormente l’esperienza di gioco con Far Cry 3, permettendo ai giocatori di immergersi completamente in una lotta epica per la sopravvivenza in uno degli ambienti più impegnativi di gioco mai visti finora.
  8. Queste settimane sono state molto intense per AMD: anche se dal lato Hardware non ci sono state novità, dal lato software e promozionale la società ha dato una decisa svolta positiva alle sue schede Radeon HD 7000. Infatti, la nota azienda americana Advanced Micro Devices ha annunciato una nuova incredibile promozione per tutte le sue schede video facenti parte dell'ormai nota famiglia Radeon HD 7000. Inoltre l'uscita dei nuovi driver 12.11 ha permesso un incredibile balzo in avanti nelle prestazioni di tutta la serie HD 7000. In questo articolo pertanto vi presenteremo tutti i test aggiornati della serie HD 7000, i dettagli dell'offerta Never Settle Game Bundle. Vediamo in cosa consiste tale offerta:
  9. Il rilascio dei nuovi driver 12.11 ha portato un grande boost prestazionale rispetto alla precedente generazione di driver. Lo staff di XtremeHardware a tal fine sta aggiornando tutti i test della serie 7000 in modo da fornire un quadro più attuale delle attuali prestazioni delle nuove schede video AMD. Tuttavia i nuovi driver portavano con sé un bug già evidenziato dal sito http://www.ocaholic.ch/xoops/html/modules/news/article.php?storyid=5661">Ocaholic nei Catalyst 12.10 WHQL. Come si può notare dallo screen, questi driver avevano difficoltà nel riportare le frequenze in 2D ai minimi possibili per le nuove GPU a 28nm.
  10. AMD ha oggi reso disponibile due nuove versioni di driver Catalyst: i 12.10 WHQL e 12.11 Beta.Questi driver sono compatibili a partire da tutte le Radon HD 5000 in poi.
  11. La nota azienda americana Advanced Micro Devices ha annunciato una nuova promozione per le schede video della famiglia Radeon HD 7000:
  12. Mushkin ha appena introdotto una nuova linea di SSD dedicati alla funzione di caching, chiamata Catalyst. I nuovi dischi allo stato solido sono disponibili con capacità da 50 e 100 GB con interfaccia di connessione SATA III 6Gbps. L'SSD Cache viene associato a un HDD ad alta capacità di memorizzazione, in modo da sfruttare i tempi di accesso quasi nulli delle unità con memorie Flash e lo storage dell'unità meccanica da dedicare alle installazioni del sistema operativo e relativi software. In genere la capacità degli SSD Cache si aggira intorno a poche decine di GB di memoria e la versione da 100GB dei nuovi Mushkin Catalyst risulta una voce fuori dal coro.
  13. AMD Catalyst - Anno 2011 In questo thread verranno discusse performance e (eventuali) problemi relativi ai rilasci dei driver Catalyst nell'anno 2011.
