AMD's Gaming Software Makes Automatic Counter-Strike And League Of Legends Highlights

It’s not widely in use these days, but there should be a fair few of you who remember the Raptr third-party gaming software. It was founded by Dennis Fong — the guy who won John Carmack’s Ferrari in a Quake tournament — in 2007 and the platform joined forces with AMD and Twitch a couple of years ago.

Raptr’s now primarily called AMD Gaming Evolved, and serves a similar purpose to NVIDIA’s GeForce Experience. The software’s just gotten a neat update too, something that Counter-Strike and League of Legends fans will appreciate.

The Radeon Pro Duo Is AMD's Most Powerful Ever Graphics Card

AMD Is Making A VR-AR Headset Of Their Own

So we’ve got the HTC Vive. There’s the Rift-powered Samsung Gear VR. The actual Rift. PlayStation VR. And StarVR, even though we haven’t heard a great deal about that. And let’s not forget Microsoft’s HoloLens, even though that’s a different technology altogether.

AMD Drops Radeon R9 Nano Price To $849

AMD’s Radeon R9 Nano was the most interesting card in the company’s most recent graphics refresh — not because it was the most powerful (that’d be the watercooled R9 Fury X), but because it was the most efficient, and used its power in a tiny footprint that would fit a Mini ITX motherboard. Now, it’s had a pretty significant price cut in Australia.

AMD Takes A Swing At Intel And Their SYSMark Benchmarks, Misses Completely

It always fun when major corporations decide to publicly slag the other one off. So to help round off your Friday with a smile, let’s enjoy AMD having a good old whinge about benchmarks and bias towards Intel.

AMD Cards Will Support HDMI 2.0a And DisplayPort 1.3 Next Year
