AMD TrueAudio technology enhances audio realism by simulating the human brain’s perception of real-world sound, working in concert with the user’s existing audio hardware to recreate a lifelike experience in upcoming games like “THIEF™” by Square Enix or “Lichdom” by Xaviant Games.

AMD Releases Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.9.2

by Scott Michaud |
Continuing with AMD's attempts, especially since the start of the Crimson Edition line, to release a driver alongside big game releases, the graphics vendor has published Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.9.2.
It should also fix things like mouse pointer corruption on RX 400 series graphics.
We expect to see official details of the R9 300-series of products of which there have been many leaks as well as the final details of the AMD Fury and Fury X products based on the new Fiji GPU.
The experience was smooth though of course there were no indications of frame rate, etc. while it was going on.

AMD R9 300-Series Possibly Coming Soon

by Scott Michaud |
The current rumors claim that Fiji XT will have 4096 graphics cores that are fed by a high-bandwidth, stacked memory architecture, which is supposedly rated at 640 GB/s (versus 224 GB/s of the GeForce GTX 980).
That said, they also have cache and other methods to reduce this dependency, but let's just say that, if you offer a graphics vendor a free, order-of-magnitude speed-up in memory bandwidth - you will have friend, and possibly one for life.
