It’s kind of dropped off the radar, but both NVIDIA and AMD have been working on a solution to the infamous effect of “screen tearing”.

Then And Now: Five Generations Of Radeon Graphics Compared

Last month we compared half a decade’s worth of DirectX 11-capable GeForce cards in the latest and greatest PC games to see where Nvidia has made the biggest performance leaps and which GPUs have aged the best.


AMD Cuts Over 700 Jobs In The Face Of Declining Revenue

In the context of gaming hardware, AMD is right up there with NVIDIA and you really can’t have a discussion about processors without bringing it up alongside Intel. Change the context to the stock market, however and AMD is just another name… one that isn’t doing as well as the other companies mentioned here.
