AMDGPU-PRO 17.50 vs. RADV/RadeonSI Radeon Linux Gaming Performance
     Tue, Dec 12 2017 | 3:10P | Drivers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"With today's AMDGPU-PRO 17.50 Linux driver release alongside the Radeon Software Adrenalin Driver for Windows users, it's significant in a few ways. First and foremost, AMD has stuck to their word of the past two years and is now able to open-source their official Vulkan Linux driver. When it comes to AMDGPU-PRO 17.50 itself you are now able to mix-and-match driver components to choose what pieces you want of AMD's somewhat complicated driver make-up. Additionally, their OpenGL/Vulkan drivers in 17.50 have some new feature capabilities. So with that said here's a fresh look at how the AMDGPU-PRO 17.50 professional driver performance compares to the latest open-source RadeonSI OpenGL and RADV Vulkan drivers."

AMD Finally Pushing Out Open-Source Vulkan Driver
     Tue, Dec 12 2017 | 3:08P | Drivers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Ahead of the Vulkan 1.0 debut nearly two years ago, we heard that for AMD's Vulkan Linux driver it was initially going to be closed-source and would then be open-sourced once ready. At the time it sounded like something that would be opened up six months or so, but finally that milestone is being reached! Ahead of Christmas, AMD is publishing the source code to their official Vulkan Linux driver."

LG V30 Review
     Fri, Nov 10 2017 | 4:02P | Drivers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If there's a sleeper phone that's been on our radar for a while here, it's the LG V30. LG has been teasing this phone for what seems like an eternity. The company definitely took their time putting the finishing touches on the V30 and today we have our full assessment of it for you, after living with a final production unit for a couple of weeks now. LG's V series line is its full-featured Android offering with all the bells and whistles and the most premium materials and build quality the company has to offer. Does it have the chops to compete with the likes of Google's new Pixel 2, the Samsung Galaxy S8+ and other top shelf Android offerings?

Mastering PUBG With The Help Of NVIDIA ShadowPlay
     Tue, Oct 03 2017 | 9:03A | Drivers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Last year we offered a detailed exploration of NVIDIA’s GeForce Experience tool set for capturing screenshots and videos. Since then, a few bells and whistles have been tacked on to further enhance the experience. The most recent of these is ShadowPlay Highlights, a slick feature that intelligently identifies your finest moments (or epic failures) in games and records them for your viewing and social sharing pleasure. The Highlights feature requires developer support for implementation and therefore is currently only working in select titles. The newest of these supported titles is PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds...

OpenGL 4.6 Released With Vulkan/SPIR-V Ingestion
     Fri, Aug 11 2017 | 9:00A | Drivers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"As we have been anticipating for weeks/months, a new formal update to OpenGL has been in the works and it's officially out today. Meet OpenGL 4.6! This is a pretty significant update and internally they had the debate whether to call it OpenGL 5.0, but here we are with OpenGL 4.6 that features Vulkan/SPIR-V extensions and more. The good news is the open-source Mesa drivers aren't too far out from OpenGL 4.6 support, at least RadeonSI and Intel."
