AMD "Fiji" Silicon Lacks HDMI 2.0 Support

It turns out that AMD's new "Fiji" silicon lacks HDMI 2.0 support, after all. Commenting on OCUK Forums, an AMD representative confirmed that the chip lacks support for the connector standard, implying that it's limited to HDMI 1.4a. HDMI 2.0 offers sufficient bandwidth for 4K Ultra HD resolution at 60 Hz. While the chip's other connectivity option, DisplayPort 1.2a supports 4K at 60 Hz - as do every 4K Ultra HD monitor ever launched - the lack of HDMI 2.0 support hurts the chip's living room ambitions, particularly with products such as the Radeon R9 Nano, which AMD CEO Lisa Su, stated that is being designed for the living room. You wouldn't need a GPU this powerful for 1080p TVs (a GTX 960 or R9 270X ITX card will do just fine), and if it's being designed for 4K UHD TVs, then its HDMI interface will cap visuals at a console-rivaling 30 Hz.

NEC Display Solutions Adds 27-Inch Enterprise Model to UHD Portfolio

NEC Display Solutions of America, a leading provider of commercial LCD display and projector solutions, announced today the MultiSync EA275UHD display, the latest addition to its 4K Ultra High-Definition product portfolio.

The monitor's UHD resolution (four times full HD), business-class features and factory calibration are ideal for high-end corporate users, CAD/CAM engineers, Command & Control personnel and entry-level graphics users as well as anyone desiring more desktop space. The 27-inch display has flexible input configurations, allowing one or two inputs on screen simultaneously.

AMD Dual-GPU "Fiji" Graphics Card PCB Pictured

Here is the first reasonably detailed PCB shot of the dual-GPU graphics card based on "Fiji," which AMD announced at its E3 conference. The card is an inch taller than standard, but surprisingly short, for a dual-GPU board. This is thanks to the memory being relocated to the GPU package. All that's left on the PCB, besides the two GPUs, are the PLX PEX8747 PCI-Express gen 3.0 x48 bridge chip, and the 12-phase VRM, which draws power from a pair of 8-pin PCIe power connectors. Display outputs include one HDMI 2.0, and three DisplayPort 1.2a connectors.

AMD announced significant energy efficiency gains for "Fiji" over "Hawaii," and so this card could have a much lower than expected power-draw. The reference board could come with AIO liquid-cooling, much like the single-GPU Radeon R9 Fury X, some AIBs could even release cards with air-cooling solutions. The yet unnamed dual-GPU "Fiji" based graphics card could be available in Autumn 2015.

AMD Radeon R9 Fury X Confirmed SKU Name for "Fiji XT"

The bets are off, AMD's latest flagship graphics card will indeed get a fancy name, and it will be named Radeon R9 Fury X. Korean tech-site HardwareBattle leaked a product flyer with the SKU name, and its catchphrase "revolutionary, inside out." Based on the 28 nm "Fiji" silicon, the R9 Fury X is expected to feature 4,096 stream processors, 256 TMUs, 128 ROPs, and a 4096-bit wide HBM memory interface, holding 4 GB of memory.

The reference-design Fury X will come with an AIO cooling solution, likely designed by Asetek, featuring a Cooler Master made fan, ventilating its 120 x 120 mm radiator. Just as the Radeon R9 290X did away with D-Sub (VGA) support (even with dongles), Fiji does away with the DVI connector. You still get three DisplayPort 1.2a ports, and a single HDMI 2.0 connector. The card has been pictured on the web featuring two 8-pin PCIe power connectors.

XFX Radeon R9 390X Pictured Some More

Ahead of its possible June 16 launch, more pictures of AIB-branded Radeon R9 390X graphics cards are hitting the wires. Here, we have an XFX-branded R9 390X, complete with its box-art. The R9 390X, is expected to be a re-brand of the previous generation R9 290X, with its standard memory amount raised to 8 GB. It's based on the 28 nm "Grenada" silicon. We've seen no evidence pointing at "Grenada" being some sort of an upgrade of "Hawaii" with newer GCN 1.2 stream processors. Perhaps AMD polished its electricals to the extent it could, without changing the silicon. We'll know for sure only next week.

XFX' Radeon R9 390X features a custom air cooling solution, which is taller than the one the company used on its R9 290 series products. It still retains its 2-slot form. The cooler consists of two aluminium fin-stacks, along the edges of seven 8 mm thick copper heat pipes, which draw heat from the GPU at the base. A metal heatspreader conveys heat from the memory chips to the main heatsink; while individual metal heatsinks cool the VRM. The card draws power from a combination of 6-pin and 8-pin PCIe power connectors. Display outputs include two dual-link DVI, and one each of HDMI 1.4a and DisplayPort 1.2a connectors.

GIGABYTE 100 Series Motherboards First Adopter of New Intel USB 3.1 Controller

GIGABYTE TECHNOLOGY Co. Ltd., a leading manufacturer of motherboards and graphics cards, is proud to announce that its 100 Series of motherboards is the world's first to feature the new Intel USB 3.1 premium I/O controller onboard, for the best I/O solution over Type-C connector. The new Intel 6th Gen. Core processor ready motherboards from GIGABYTE sports Intel USB 3.1 premium I/O controller to offer more protocol compatibility than any other I/O controller, such as USB 3.1, and in the future, DisplayPort 1.2 connectivity and Thunderbolt 3. All of this is achieved over the new popular reversible Type-C connector, making connectivity widely compatible.

Using PCIe Gen.3 x4 lanes from the chipset and Display connectivity from the processor, the USB 3.1 controller from Intel is capable of delivering a total bandwidth of 40 Gb/s. When configured to handle dual USB 3.1 connectivity either through the Type-C or Type-A connector, this means the USB 3.1 controller can deliver true simultaneous and uninterrupted 10 Gb/s bandwidth over both ports, making GIGABYTE motherboards the best USB 3.1 solution.

Logic Supply Previews its Upcoming ML600 Series Fanless PC

Optimized for passive heat distribution, the new systems enable up to Intel i7 desktop processing without the need for a cooling fan, reducing a common failure point in commercial PCs and virtually eliminating noise.

"Logic Supply's goal is to offer our clients the ideal system to fit their needs," said Logic Supply Product Manager Logan Cooke. "While there are other systems on the market that may offer a certain number of COM ports, or i7 processing, or fanless cooling, or a ventless chassis, there was nothing available that combined all of these features into one system. With each of the ML600 systems we wanted to offer a computer that would offer users a unique combination of capabilities and connectivity."

AMD Fiji XT Pictured Some More

In the latest picture leaked of AMD's upcoming flagship graphics card, codenamed "Fiji-XT," we get a final confirmation of the reference-design card's length, particularly its short PCB. Since this card uses a factory-fitted AIO liquid cooling solution, and since the Fiji XT package is effectively smaller than that of Hawaii, with the surrounding memory chips gone (moved to the GPU package as HBM stacks), the PCB is extremely compact, with just the GPU package, and its VRM. Speaking of which, the card draws power from a pair of 8-pin PCIe power connectors. The coolant tubes stick out from the rear of the card, making their way to a 120 x 120 mm radiator, with a single included 120 mm PWM fan. With this card, AMD is doing away with DVI altogether. Connectors will be a mixture of DisplayPort 1.2a and HDMI 2.0.

KFA2 GeForce GTX 960 EXOC White Edition Now Available

KFA2 announced an all-white variant of its GeForce GTX 960 EXOC graphics card. White makes up the cooler shroud and fans, but it doesn't carry on to the PCB - something KFA2 and its parent Galaxy built a reputation around. Luckily, it features an all-white back-plate, and so its PCB (which is thankfully black and not electric-blue), should provide an interesting contrast, peeking out of the vents on the back-plate.

Looks aside, the GTX 960 EXOC White Edition is a very capable card, offering a factory OC of 1279 MHz core, 1367 MHz GPU Boost, and an untouched 7.00 GHz memory, against reference speeds of 1127/1187 MHz. It draws power from a single 8-pin PCIe power connector, and conditions it using a 6-phase VRM. The aluminium fin-stack heatsink uses 8 mm-thick nickel-plated copper heat pipes, which make direct contact with the GPU. Display outputs include two DVI, and one each of DisplayPort 1.2 and HDMI 2.0. The card is priced at 209.90€, including taxes.

AMD Fiji XT Reference PCB as Short as GTX 970 Reference, R9 295X2 Performance

AMD's upcoming Radeon R9 390X graphics cards will ship in two SKUs - an air-cooled one, with a moderately long reference design board (though not as long as the R9 290X), and a new Water-Cooled Edition (WCE) SKU, which will feature a very compact PCB - one that could be no bigger than that of the GeForce GTX 970 reference. This is possible because of AMD's HBM implementation. The 8 GB of memory on this card is present on the GPU package, as bare 3D-stacked DRAM dies, surrounding the GPU die, with an IHS covering everything; rather than the GPU package being surrounded by memory chips. Below is a mock-up of the card by ChipHell. It's not a picture. The radiator is off-proportions, the Radeon logo is misaligned, and the PCIe I/O is misaligned, etc. It should still give you a good idea of what the card looks like, particularly its length. Other specs on hand so far, include 4,096 GCN 1.2 stream processors, 256 TMUs, 128 ROPs, and a 4096-bit wide HBM interface, which at 1.25 GHz memory clock, will offer memory bandwidth of 640 GB/s.

While Fiji package will be bigger than that of, say, "Hawaii," overall the setup is more space-efficient, and conserves PCB real-estate. The PCB hence only has the GPU package and the VRM. AMD is doing away with the DVI connector on its reference PCB. It will only feature three DisplayPort 1.2a and one HDMI 2.0a. The WCE variant will feature a pump+block covering the GPU package, which will come factory-fitted to a 120 x 120 mm radiator. The air-cooled R9 390X will be longer, but only to house a heatsink and lateral blower. The single-GPU card could offer performance comparable to the dual-GPU R9 295X2, which is faster than the GeForce GTX TITAN-X. AMD CEO Lisa Su, speaking at the Investor Day event, in New York, on 6th May, hinted that the product could launch on the sidelines of either Computex 2015 (early-June) or E3 (mid-June).
