Inside shake up
There's been a lot of noise about Raja Koduri Senior Vice President and Chief Architect, Radeon Technologies Group at AMD. His job is to run the Radeon Technologies Group and it was confirmed that he is taking a few months off as a sabbatical. Now Fudzilla has learned about a big shake up inside AMD.
Optimizations for a couple of games
AMD has released its latest Radeon Software Crimson ReLive Edition 17.10.1 driver which brings optimizations for a couple of upcoming games as well as a few fixes.
Radeon Software 17.9.3 driver offers 4K 60FPS on RX 580
After an initial report that AMD Radeon series graphics cards, especially the RX Vega series, are offering great performance in Forza Motorsport 7 game, AMD has now officially started to brag about it, saying that it offers 4K 60FPS gameplay on RX 580 graphics card.
Based on Polaris GPU
AMD said its newest Embedded Radeon E9170 series GPUs will be based on the well-known Polaris GPU and come in multiple form factors aimed at embedded applications.
Optimization at its best
AMD has apparently done a hell of a job optimizing its drivers for Forza Motorsport 7 game as its Radeon RX Vega 64 and Vega 56 graphics cards managed to beat Nvidia's GTX 1080 Ti and GTX 1080.
From most, if not all partners
Despite earlier worrisome rumors that some partners might not be working on custom Radeon RX Vega graphics cards, it appears that most, if not all partners will be launching their custom RX Vega versions in late October/early November.
Optimizations for Total War: Warhammer II and Forza Motorsport 7
AMD has released its latest Radeon Software Crimson ReLive Edition 17.9.3 drivers which bring optimizations for Total War: Warhammer II and Forza Motorsport 7 as well as a couple of bug fixes.
But only in couple of games
AMD has enabled RX Vega multi-GPU Crossfire with its latest new Radeon Software Crimson ReLive 17.9.2 drivers and it also supports mixed Crossfire, with RX Vega 64 and RX Vega 56, but it only works in a couple of games.
Custom RX Vega 56 even later
According to a report, it appears that custom Radeon RX Vega 64 graphics cards have been further delayed and we won't see them before mid-October, while custom Radeon RX Vega 56 could come even later.
