CoolerMaster CM Spawn Saturday, 22 January 2011 18:13   Earlier this year we took a look at CoolerMaster's Inferno MMORPG mouse and now we're looking at CoolerMaster's new product, Spawn, geared towards first-person shooters.
Cooler Master CM Inferno Review Saturday, 01 January 2011 17:36   The mouse is the bread and butter and ultimate tool for anyone who plays games on the PC. Over the past dozen years there's been an explosion in shapes and sizes of it and for all different utilities. It's evolved quite nicely from a few buttons and a mouse ball to lasers, lights, and more buttons than most people would ever know what to do with. That, however, is not the case for gamers. Cooler Master has a new mouse out specifically built for MMORPGs that are so popular, the Cooler Master Inferno.

AMD has tweeted that they are putting the finishing touches on the Catalyst 14.1 drivers.

 

We are putting the finishing touches on the AMD Catalyst™ 14.1 Beta driver, which enables support for Mantle. We appreciate your patience.

Hot Hardware and Hexus have more details on Mantle support and Battlefield 4.   It appears the R7/R9 chips, and Kaveri will have support, but all of us poor 7800/7900 users will have to wait.  I'm trying to confirm that now.

Ars discusses AMD's Q4 numbers and believes it shows they are the winners of the console wars.

 

AMD's financial tables (PDF) for the quarter illustrate the extent to which the graphics division buoyed the rest of the company.

In Q3 it made $79 million on revenue of $671 million, and last year it made just $22 million on revenue of $326 million.

Press Releases - AMD

Newegg has listed up a mining kit that consists of 6 Visiontek Radeon 7950s, and pairs that with one MSI 970 motherboard, a single core Sempron, 4GB of Kingston, and two Rosewill 1000 watt power supplies.  Yeah, I'm not quite sure how that works either since that board will only push 2 7950s.  I have 5 of them.  It does signify that mining has arrived.  In years past I have had to educate the video card guys I've talked to about this.

News - Video Cards

Its been almost a year since AMD and Crystal Dynamics showed off TressFX Laura Croft locks.  Now they have a video talking about the next gen console version of the game and finally console gamers will see the effect.

AMD's Kaveri is here, and it is what we thought it was.  Great GPU performance with slightly better CPU performance than Richland in the new FM2+ socket.

News - APUs

Anandtech also mentions the Mantle 45% increase for Battlefield 4 although we don't know if this was from Kaveri integrated video, or if its from an add in GCN card.  I hope to find someone confirming those details.

 

The success of APUs was another point AMD stressed yet again, and they moved from there into a focus on their HSA initiative. TrueAudio was also mentioned along with Mantle, and AMD notes that there are currently three game engines in development with support for Mantle (Frostbite 3, Nitrous, and Asura), with five developers using Mantle in over twenty upcoming games. Battlefield 4 is the closest to release, and AMD demonstrated the Mantle version running on AMD hardware tonight, noting that the Mantle version is running 45% faster than the non-Mantle version on the same system. Other demonstrations included HSA/TrueAudio being used by Nuance to clean up audio streams to the point where they could do speech/voice recognition even in noisy environments. Libre Office noted a speedup of up to 8X with HSA acceleration enabled on a Kaveri A10-7850K vs. the same APU without HSA acceleration, though this was apparently with a huge spreadsheet.

News - APUs

In what seems a bit of a slap in the face, AMD graphics support is coming third, after Nvidia, and Intel.  Polygon has more details.

 

Valve's Linux-based operating system, SteamOS, now supports Intel graphics hardware out of the box, according to an update on the Steam Community by Valve employee Pierre-Loup A. Griffais, adding that support for AMD hardware is still being worked on.
