To meet consumer demand and cover the entire market segment of high-performance gaming laptops , the company has decided to refresh your Maingear gaming laptop NOMAD 17 , releasing version c AMD- processor and a Radeon on board. According to the company , the laptop is able to run the latest games at maximum settings and use the multitasking capabilities in full.
Earlier this week, AMD announced that it will complete its new graphics card Radeon R9 290X, R9 290, R9 280X, R9 270X R9 270 and a free copy of the popular military first-person shooter Battlefield 4. Then we highly regarded this step of: this game is that at the end of December will be supported by Mantle, well unleashes graphics accelerators family Volcanic Islands, and in addition, is a useful purchase for gamers by itself. For many users complete Battlefild 4 could indeed be a powerful argument in favor of a transition to a new family of graphics accelerator Radeon R9. But there is one problem: as it turned out, to get the promised free Battlefield 4 is not easy.
Citing people familiar with the Chinese site VR-Zone reported that AMD is working on a dual-GPU graphics card family Volcanic Islands.According to the available information, this video card takes the top position in the line and will be based on two chips Hawaii XT, used in the accelerator-based Radeon R9 290X. This means that after a while on store shelves may appear elite graphics card for enthusiasts with high net name like Radeon R9 290X2, realizing Crossrire-configuration of the flagship AMD cards on a single board.

The company is in stable condition, but its profitability is questionable.
AMD is initially planned that the promising hybrid processors Kaveri will be equipped with a flexible two-channel memory controller that can work with DDR3, and with GDDR5 SDRAM. Despite the fact that the latter would require a rigid mounting BGA-memory chips directly to the motherboard without the possibility of any subsequent upgrade, this solution would solve the problem of insufficient capacity of the memory bus, which suffer greatly from the built-in graphics processor core. Modern GDDR5 SDRAM is able to offer at least twice as better bandwidth than DDR3, and even if the processors Kaveri manned the cheapest chips with the effective frequency 3200 MHz, bandwidth standard 128-bit CPU bus would reach 51.2 GB / s.
In the past few years, AMD has regularly updates its range of CPUs, graphics cards and chipsets, each time complementing their logos designed for a long time. Looks like it’s time to upgrade yet and – at the recent presentation of mobile APU line Elite A were seen original labels with unique design.
