GPU 14 Product Showcase Coverage Wednesday, 25 September 2013 13:16 And at 2:59 Central time we start the GPU 14 livestream from AMD out in Hawaii!      This is not a launch day, but a look at what is to come in the weeks ahead for AMD's R9 and R7 GPU 14 line up live from Hawaii.  
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.

Dice has released a roughly 400mb patch yesterday to fix a few bugs, and it also improved Mantle performance.  A couple of our Game Republik customers conferred.  They were on Radeon HD 7850 2GB cards with 3.2GHz Athlon II X4 650s.  I tested on the FX 6300 with a Radeon HD 7950 and also ran the built in graph and FPS counter.  Performance went up massively, and stuttering seemed almost non existant.  This was with the latest Catalyst 14.2 V1.3 beta drivers.

 

Feb 25 PC Game update notes
-Fix for the so called “sound loop crash” issue that caused the game to freeze
-Fix for an issue that sometimes prevented players from shooting while in the gunner position of a vehicle
-Fix for the headshot icon appearing incorrectly at non-headshot deaths, such as suicide or dying of an explosion
-General stability improvements

Mantle
-General stability and performance improvements
-Fix for an issue that caused the sky/fog to be either too bright or too dark when Mantle was used
-Added on-screen video memory utilization statistics with “Render.DrawScreenInfo”

News - Gaming

AMD has released version 14.2 beta V1.3 of their Catalyst drivers here.  These are for GCN graphic cores only.

 

 

Highlights:
· Thief: Crossfire Profile update and performance improvements for single GPU configurations

· Mantle: Multi-GPU configurations (up to 4 GPUs) running Battlefield 4 are now supported

· Frame Pacing for Dual Graphics and non-XDMA configurations above 2560x1600 are now supported with Battlefield 3 and Battlefield 4

· Dual graphics DirectX 9 application issues have been resolved

· Minecraft: missing textures have been resolved

· 3D applications no longer see intermittent hangs or application crashes

News - Video Cards

Battlefield 4 was patched yesterday with general game fixes, and Mantle specific fixes.  The patch was about half a gig.   Their forum has full details.

 

Mantle
-Fix for a crash that would occur when activating full screen in portrait mode
-Fix for stuttering that could appear during video sequences on multi-GPU PCs
-Fix for a memory system leak that could cause stalls, which would result in frames taking longer to process
-Reduced the amount of stalls that occurred when running with high graphics setting that require more GPU memory than is currently available
-Fixed screenshots on multi-GPU PCs

There are no notes here on improvements in performance for Radeon HD 7000 series cards so I'm guessing they are not included, and testing on the 7950 didn't seem any faster last night post patch.

News - Drivers

The Catalyst 14.1 driver continues to be further delayed, but AMD has snuck out the driver to a few sites it appears.  I have requested it, but so far no luck.  Is there anyone on the planet more qualified to test BF4 and Mantle?  Unlikely.  I actually play the game, and have almost 30 systems to test with.  So we wait.  

Legit Reviews has tested with a R7 260X and a i5-3570. Yes, backwards of the best scenario for what expect the boost from lower end CPUs to be, but they get almost a 16% increase in performance.   I have no interest in Star Swarm performance unless it becomes a game people play. 

However we do have some better news.  PCLab Poland has multiplayer benchmarks with a R9 290X and with Mantle and the A10-7850K Kaveri pushing it performance almost doubles on ultra at 1080P.  Its similar gains for every AMD CPU, and i3 and Pentiums with even lower clocked Haswell quads like the 4570 and 4670 benefiting.   Single player shows little benefit, but then there is much less going on, and who plays Battlefield for single player anyway?  Across the board performance numbers are impressive with from 100% to over 20% even for Intel's highest end 4770K.

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. The Graphical and Visual Solutions segment, which includes GPUs for laptops, desktops, and workstations, as well as the game console business, made $121 million on revenue of $865 million. In Q3 it made $79 million on revenue of $671 million, and last year it made just $22 million on revenue of $326 million.
