"AMD Catalyst 10.10c HotFix Drivers were released just moments ago, so be sure to grab them if you need them! This Hotfix is mainly for those gamers that have a Radeon HD 6800 series video card. The changes include OpenGL 4.1 beta support and a new CrossFire profile and several game performance enhancements. You can download and install the AMD Catalyst hotfix from here for Windows 7 and Windows Vista from this site.
"Following the official Catalyst 10.10 driver release, AMD has also rolled out the Catalyst 10.10a hotfix for Radeon HD 6800 series cards. The new hotfix brings support for Morphological Anti-Aliasing feature, which is a new post-process filtering technique accelerated with DirectCompute.
"We thought we were going to build a 10GHz chip. It was only when we discovered that they would get so hot it would melt through the Earth, that we decided not to do that," Newell said, jokingly, in an interview with IDG. Now it's about who has more cores, but Newell doesn't see that continuing indefinitely. "There will come an end to the core-count wars. I won't put an exact date on it, but I don't myself expect to see 128 cores on a full-sized server die by the end of this decade," said Newell.
"AMD has released its third quarter financial report, showing revenue for the third quarter of 2010 of $1.62 billion, a net loss of $118 million, or $0.17 per share, and operating income of $128 million. The company reported non-GAAP net income of $108 million, or $0.15 per share, and non-GAAP operating income of $144 million. “AMD’s third quarter performance was highlighted by solid gross margin and a continued focus on profitability, despite weaker than expected consumer demand,” said Dirk Meyer, AMD president and CEO.
"In fact, the next-generation of CPUs, including Intel's forthcoming Sandy Bridge processor, have to contend with multiple walls--a memory bottleneck (the bandwidth of the channel between the CPU and a computer's memory); the instruction level parallelism (ILP) wall (the availability of enough discrete parallel instructions for a multi-core chip) and the power wall (the chip's overall temperature and power consumption)..." | more
More! More! Power! Power!
"AMD is launching a half dozen new processors today, targeted at virtually all market segments, ranging from an inexpensive, mainstream dual-core Athlon II offering to a new, relatively high-end six-core Phenom II.
