Hello everyone,

AMD needs your help --

As we continue to improve our Catalyst Driver suite, we kindly ask you to help us by submitting any issues or bugs you have experienced with our drivers by using the form below. We value your feedback and intend to use the information you provide us to make our Catalyst Drivers better.

For the next 7 days we are making a concerted effort to increase the number of reports we receive to create a “bible” of bugs encountered by our customers.

Please click here to access the form. http://www.amdsurveys.com/se.ashx?s=5A1E27D2245932A5

Sep 2, 2014 at 07:13 AM by Kombatant
Today marks the day AMD refreshes its FX CPU lineup for fall 2014, and it is a mixture of new parts and price cuts on already existing processors. According to AMD, it is now easier than ever to build an AMD enthusiast PC capable of delivering high quality immersive gaming experiences, and the newly introduced 95W 8-core processors in the component channel permit many users to upgrade from FX-4 or FX-6 processors to 8-cores at minimal cost. Read more details and find out why AMD believes enthusiasts should take a closer look at its offerings.

Ubisoft working on 60fps for The Crew
Aug 26, 2014 at 03:46 PM by seanR3D
Some recent miscommunications indicated Ubisoft's racer The Crew would only support 30fps on PC, but the company has recently clarified they're aiming for the all-important 60.

It's encouraging beta testers could force 60 through config file editing; it wasn't an officially supported option at the time because Ubisoft still has optimizing to do before it can put its weight behind it.

Witcher 3 "Downwarren" gameplay video features excellent facial rendering, better UI
Aug 13, 2014 at 03:21 PM by seanR3D
CD Projekt have released a new gameplay video for their upcoming RPG The Witcher 3, in which it's looking as great as ever, in terms of gameplay, visuals, and what appears to be a much better user interface over The Witcher 2. See for yourself below.



Compression hurts the fidelity a lot except for the up-close scenes with heavy facial rendering, so if you like, download the HD version here (1.2 GB), which is much improved.

Payday 2 PC patch includes major network improvements
Aug 11, 2014 at 04:54 PM by seanR3D
The 33rd patch for Payday 2 is out on PC, and with it comes some very appealing network improvements.

Among them: network options (packet throttling for those on poor connections and compression, which improves congestion for everyone), much faster drop-in synchronization, and packet optimization. The changes especially benefit those on poor connections, but everyone is better off to some degree.

Besides networking improvements, there are fixes related to visuals, bugs, and crashes.

Grab the update through Steam now.

Capcom is remaking a remake: the 2002 overhaul of the original Resident Evil is finally making its way to PC.

This new version of the game will include enhanced textures (moreso than before), 1080p resolution and 16:9 widescreen support, 5.1 audio, and control scheme options (as we saw in the recent Resident Evil 4 upgrade).

Resident Evil will release early next year.

Geforce 340.52 drivers optimized for Metro Redux
Aug 4, 2014 at 03:52 PM by seanR3D
Bit late on this one, but NVIDIA released its Geforce 340.52 certified drivers last week. The most notable aspect of this version is Metro Redux optimizations; other additions include SHIELD tablet streaming support and the usual slew of SLI and 3D Vision profiles.

Hit the source if you want the full details and/or download; I recommend you grab the drivers through Geforce Experience.

Project Cars system requirements are hefty
Jul 29, 2014 at 05:29 PM by seanR3D
Developer Slightly Mad claims Project Cars is the "most technically advanced racing game on the planet". Often these kind of claims are nonsense, but the screenshots and footage hold up well to it.

In any case, to run a game that looks this great, you'll need great specs, as the recently revealed system requirements indicate. See them for yourself below.

They're definitely on the higher end, but most enthusiasts should well-equipped.
