GTC 2017 starts off strong
Since 2009, NVIDIA continues to showcase bleeding edge technology to developers.
Similar to Fiji GPU
A big update to the Digital Rendering Manger (DRM) in Linux 4.12 kernel, which adds initial Radeon Vega support, has left us with possible specifications for that same upcoming AMD flagship GPU.
For 4K90fps and HDR
ARM has unveiled its newest Mali-Cetus display architecture which is likely to address future graphics requirements, new UHD content, better scaling as well as bring new power and quality optimizations.
Alleged benchmark result shows up
During its Q1 2017 financial call, AMD has confirmed that its Vega GPU architecture is still on track for Q2 launch, which means it should be launched by the end June.
Through its GPU Ventures programme
Nvidia has announced that it invested in six new start-ups in three countries over the past year.
In a move which will get the Nvidia fanboys jolly cross, AMD has said that its new Vega line-up will actually compete with their favourite chip maker in the notebook market.
Headed for Linux too
Vulkan graphics API was supposed to be cross-platform and fix the issue of DirectX 12 only being available on Windows 10.
A slight delay
According to reports, the upcoming AMD Radeon RX 500 series, which should be based on Polaris GPUs, could be slightly delayed, with the new launch date set for April 18th.
If you need a bit of heavy number crunching
The search engine outfit Google is turning over the GPUs in its data centres to researchers and companies engaged in machine learning and heavy number crunching tasks.
