With the release of the GTX 1050 Ti and GTX 1050 nearly upon us, on the 25th of October and anytime up until the 8th of November accordingly, it’s easy to get overwhelmed with the shed loads of variants that the AIB (Add in Board) partners throw at us each release.

AMD has exceeded its own expectations for Q3 of this financial year thanks to record sales of semi-custom System on Chip (SoC) units and increased sales of dedicated graphics cards. Total revenue has jumped 23% year on year. It says something that I contemplated for a moment whether this was even newsworthy, such has AMD’s successful turnaround been in the last six months.

After years of falling prices, memory prices have actually started increasing abruptly. DDR4 RAM is the most affected, with some brands rising as much as 50% in price over the last six months.

So the price of memory has bottomed out and is now on the rise, but just what is the cause of this? [More]

Things aren't looking too great for GeForce graphics cards today. Fresh from issues with Micron GDDR5 memory on certain GTX 1070’s earlier today, it looks as if some users are experiencing serious issues with EVGA GeForce GTX 1070 and GeForce GTX 1080 graphics cards. Affected Reddit users claim the video cards have a hardware fault which can lead to extreme overheating. One user even says his EVGA GTX 1070 FTW caught fire and he’s waiting for a replacement from EVGA. [More]

With Nvidia coming to market soon with the $139 GeForce GTX 1050 Ti, AMD has gone into full-blown battlestations mode. Not content with just standing by as Nvidia squeezes its bottom line at the low end, Team Red is apparently working on a cut-down version of its Radeon RX 470 to compete directly with it. [More]

It probably hasn’t gone unnoticed by you, but this week is jam-packed with huge game releases. As if the arrival of Battlefield 1 today wasn’t enough, we’ve also got Sid Meier’s latest turn-based treat, Civilization VI, and the brobot bromance that is Titanfall 2 smashing into view next week. Naturally enough it means AMD has been scurrying about and readying drivers, bringing us Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.10.2 today. [More]

It seems as if a number of GeForce GTX 1070 owners are running into a memory loss issue which results in lacklustre overclocking capabilities and screen flickering.

Yesterday might have all been about the Nintendo Switch itself, but it’s the games people are really going to be interested. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is surely going to be the undisputed system seller at launched, and judging from this extensive new gameplay trailer it’s going to be really worth the wait.
