  1. it's anyone knows some information about the next amd graphics card?
  2. Hi guys, I've got an R1 M18x, and I've just swapped out two 6990m for a pair of 780m. I flashed the BIOS to unlocked A05 before I swapped and the change seemed to go well...until I tried turning it on. Screen black, and all I'm getting is two short beeps. I've taken the ram out, swapped the order etc but to no avail. Any idea what the issue could be? Thanks for any help, Mark.
  3. Hello! I have a HP Pavilion g6 laptop with amd a8-3520m APU. I planning to buy a pe4h adapter with radeon hd 7750, but i dont know how the APU will respond for the egpu. Please help me!
  4. Ok so I'm curious about everyone's views with regards to these two GPU manufacturers. Specifically, I'm interested in which you prefer (or if you're neutral state why). Criteria to consider: Driver quality Features Game developer support and compatiblity Hardware (reliability) Cost My pick: nVidia but they are far from perfect too. My reasons: 1. nVidia clearly has better drivers. This is especially true with SLi but even with single GPU, they have drivers that are more consistent in games and applications across the board. 2. Features: nVidia again dominates. Physx, CUDA (which I use for encoding), 3D support (will talk about this later), FXAA etc. 3. Game dev support: nVidia has their "The Way Its Mean to Be Played" game developer support program that the end user clearly benefits from with day 1 driver support from some of the latest AAA titles. This is especially true with regards to SLi profiles. 4. HW reliablity: this is where nVidia takes a hit. Traditionally, they seem to break down easier than their AMD counterpart. Furthermore, there are throttling schemes put in place via software by nVidia and ODMs like Dell for certain systems (e.g. M17x-R3 with its 78C throttle point) that make using these cards a headache at times. 5. AMD again wins most of the time with cheaper video cards and at least 80-90% of the performance of nVidia. With regards to 3D support, its currently broken for mobile systems. Whenever someone connects their nVidia card to an external monitor/TV thats 3D capable, it displays some message about the hardware being for internal testing. This is a known issue that nVidia has ignored and not addressed--definitely a poor showing. Aside from that, I think nVidia has done a stellar job with their mobility and desktop range. The performance is top notch, SLi scales perfectly and their drivers are nearly flawless.
  5. Desktop, laptop whatever you got in whatever configuration, no holds barred! Mine were done with high quality selected in NVCP, I'd probably squeeze a bit more out of performance textures:
  6. AMD Catalyst 13.3 BETA Changelog: Download: AMD.com
  7. DOWNLOAD LINK: http://support.amd.com/us/kbarticles/Pages/AMDCatalyst1211betadriver.aspx Well AMD has finally done some nice work and created a new performance driver that does what it claims. BF3 is seeing up to 20% gains in performance and it now puts the GCN based Radeon's on par with Kepler's best (680/680M). Since we're working on an nVidia 680M SLI vs AMD 7970M Xfire article, I'll have to scrub our initial benchmark results and try out the Catalyst 12.11's instead. Good timing AMD... From Anandtech:
  8. This driver is geared towards AMD's 7000 series that utilize the GCN architecture. Performance gains as high as 20% can be seen in games like Battlefield 3. Generally 7970M owners should see noticeable gains across the board!

  9. With continually dwindling marketshare and poor growth, AMD's fortunes have been taking a turn for the worst for quite awhile now. This shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone that keeps a close eye on the tech sector although what may be eye opening is the fact that this round of lay offs will include engineers. Rumor has it that the engineers to be laid off are the ones in Canada and Charlie from SA makes it seem like this is the result if mismanagement and will seal AMD's fate. Personally I think he's over sensationalizing the entire situation. Yes, AMD is in deep trouble financially because their CPU division has not been competitive for years, especially with their recent CPU architectures being utter failures compared to their Intel counterparts. However, upon closer inspection, you will notice that the engineers in Canada are not the core team of AMD engineers--those guys are located in Sunnyvale, California. The main GPU design team is also in Sunnyvale, CA. The Canadian division did have a smaller GPU + Catalyst team out there but AFAIK, the key guys were moved to California awhile back. Furthermore, AMD has been ratcheting up their AMD India development team who have been busy making SoC's and graphics chips for the company. This enables AMD to pick up engineers at a much cheaper price in a rapidly developing region (India/China/Pakistan etc). The argument that quality will suffer can't be made either because industry giants like Microsoft, Intel, IBM and others employ a huge chunk of Indian/Pakistani engineers that are on their chip development teams. So will this be a good or bad thing for AMD in the long run? In the short term, AMD is hemorrhaging market share and money and they need to consolidate quickly. This round of lay offs may be the beginning of a larger restructuring that the company desperately needs to survive. Another avenue AMD should consider is getting an ARM license like their rival nVidia has done with Tegra. While nVidia faces stiff competition from Samsung, Qualcomm and others, it isn't as intense as the 800 lb gorilla known as Intel. Intel has basically made AMD unviable in the x86 market (consumer and server) so their only way of surviving is to start focusing heavily on low power SoC for smartphones and tablets. The PC is in decline in general and AMD is very late to the party. AMD India: http://www.amd.com/in/aboutamd/Pages/aboutamd.aspx
  10. So after reading endless discussions on another forum with respect to the 7970M and 680M and which is truly the better buy, I wrote the following response: This has been on my mind for quite sometime and once we rev up T|I reviews again in the future (we will likely have to hire full-time writers since admins are too busy), I plan to implement a scoring system similar to what I described above. I'd like to hear what our members think of my proposal as well as your own suggestions.
  11. I came across this utility called atiman and it is similar to driver sweeper, but specifically for AMD drivers. I didn't have the opportunity to test it yet, but I will on the next catalyst release. In the meanwhile here is the link if you want to try it first Atiman Uninstaller v.7.0.2.msi
  12. I was reading an article about Nvidia having better image quality than AMD for the same settings. The reason I decided to create this thread though is after reading this review and particularly that specific part and since we have forum members that have tried both cards on their laptops (ie 460M), I was wondering if you noticed the same thing.
  13. For AMD Radeon HD 5000 and 6000 Series Only. Driver Release Notes LINK: http://support.amd.com/us/kbarticles/Pages/Catalyst121apreviewdriver.aspx
  14. Ok guys, these are newer than 11.11a and they will NOT cause your Alienware based system to go into an endless BSOD loop like 11.11a do. During the install process, you MIGHT encounter a bsod while the display driver is installing but upon reboot it should install successfully. After that, re-run the installer again and finish it by installing the CCC + HDMI drivers. This release includes profiles AND the ability to create your own gaming profiles! In addition, brightness controls are finally working!! Tested these in Saints Row: The Third and the performance is top notch so give them a shot and let us know what you think. For our special T|I members, we've included a download link for you hosted on our own servers: http://forum.techinferno.com/downloads.php?do=file&id=15 (file will take 30 minutes to show on our CDN).

  15. Just thought I'd make note that I ordered a DV6z notebook with the following specs. I plan on pitting it up against my Sager NP8130 for build quality, screen, general use, and gaming performance. 15.6" 1080p matte LCD A8-3530mx quad core AMD CPU Radeon GT 6750m GT GPU 6GB DDR3 1333 Blu-Ray Reader / DVDRW combo drive 9-cell battery Even though I know the 6750m GPU can't hold a candle to the GTX 560m in the Sager NP8130, the HP has the advantage of 6+ hours battery life compared to 3 in the Sager, and is about $450 cheaper similarly equipped (primarily blu-ray and 1080p screen).
