AMD Users Find Radeon Crimson Driver Bug Is Throttling Fan Speed And Raising Temps

Written by Joffy S on 27 November 2015 at 16:00

GD’er Rayyan51 contacted me today saying that he’d been having problems with his Radeon R7 250X since installing the latest Radeon Software Crimson Edition drivers. AMD’s massive driver overhaul arrived earlier this week, packing in all sorts of benefits and performance boosts. For Rayyan51 though, it just caused issues.

The Crimson Driver software was adjusting the GPU fan speed down to 30%, whatever the demands of the game. He turned it to auto but again it reset to 30% following a complete reboot. So I did a little bit of digging and it turns out Rayyan51 isn’t alone. There’s plenty of other people experiencing similar problems. Lowering the fan speed can have a serious impact on a graphics card’s heat dissipation, which can cause damage to your rig in the long run. [More]

AMD Radeon R9 Fury X2 Reportedly Out In The Wild - December Launch Planned

Written by Joffy S on 27 November 2015 at 15:00

If you’ve got an obscene amount of cash lying around, and would like an appropriately obscene level of gaming performance, then December could be a wallet shredding month for you. Reports are indicating AMD is preparing to launch its dual-GPU solution for its R9 Fury range. Codenamed ‘Gemini’, it’s expected to offer an unprecedented level of gaming performance.

The Radeon R9 Fury X2 8GB will become the fastest graphics card in the world when it launches in December, knocking the R9 295X2 off its perch. The dual Fiji XT GPU graphics card is essentially two Fury Nanos bolted together on a single PCB. It seems as if AMD has taken the decision to opt for a Nano equivalent rather than a Fury X in order to keep the TDP down at a manageable level, with the Fury X2 expected to draw on 300W TDP. [More]

Black Friday 2K15 - Share Your Gaming Bargains

Written by Mridul on 27 November 2015 at 13:30

It's that time of the year again, where we all celebrate how great shops are, or something to that effect. It's Black Friday. It's huge in America, usually involving scenes of total carnage and devastation, and now the rest of us are following in our American compadre's footsteps and bringing the shopping chaos worldwide. 

Keeping track of all these deals is pretty much an impossible task. Flash deals, daily discounts and limited stock make it a full time job to hunt for the best bargains. Nowadays it feels as if practically every shop in existence is running a Black Friday sale of some sort, both online and in brick and mortar stores. Here we've gathered up some of today's gaming bargains, but the more important part is everyone at GD can share any of the amazing deals we see in one spot. So without further ado... [More]

Dragons Dogma: Dark Arisen PC Gameplay Trailer Shows You The Ropes

Written by Joffy S on 27 November 2015 at 12:45

Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen, one of the finest console RPGs yet to grace the shores of PC land, is set to arrive in January, all HD-ified and no doubt packing in mountains of post-launch DLC and assorted gubbins. Since landing on PS3 and Xbox 360 back in 2012, it’s become something of a cult favourite. I guess the easiest way to imagine how Capcom’s action-RPG plays is to think of it exactly how it is - a Japanese RPG inspired by Western role-playing. Final Fantasy by way of The Elder Scrolls.

Up until now Capcom’s been pretty coy about showing us gameplay footage, but in this new four minute gameplay demo we can see precisely what it’s going to look like. Beware - this is very much a seventh gen game, but we do at least get the opportunity to push the resolution right up for better image quality. [More]

Play Uncharted 4 On PC - Sony Bringing PlayStation 4 Remote Play To PCs and Mac

Written by Stuart Thomas on 27 November 2015 at 11:30

The other day some news surfaced that a developer by the name of Twisted had managed to work out how to get PlayStation 4 Remote Play working on PCs. It was still in development but Twisted said on Monday that he was hoping to sell the program for £6.50/$10. Well, it turns out his year of hard work was totally in vain, because Sony’s just announced it’s going to be officially supporting its own version of PS4 Remote Play on PCs.

Sony Worldwide Studios head honcho Shuhei Yoshida confirmed that it was happening via Twitter, saying it was working on an official app for both PC and Mac users. In essence it’s pretty similar to the Windows 10 streaming now capable on an Xbox One, allowing users to broadcast PS4 gameplay directly to their PC and play on there. Provided you have both a PC and a PS4, then you can play exclusives like Uncharted 4: A Thief's End, Until Dawn, Bloodborne and more, all on your PC.  [More]

Total War: Warhammers Campaign Map Is A Massive Step Up In Grimgor Ironhide Trailer

Written by Neil Soutter on 27 November 2015 at 10:11

Total War: Warhammer continues to look mightily impressive in the latest trailer, which gives us our first peek at what the campaign map has in store. The Grimgor Ironhide Campaign trailer has been created entirely in engine, suggesting Creative Assembly is creating a bit of a graphical beast here, over and above anything else we've seen in the series.

Straying from the usual world maps of the Total War series, Total War Warhammer features some pretty awesome looking fantasy terrain, stretching all the way from the Badlands in the south up to the Chaos Wastes in the north. It’s a massive step up from Attila’s now drab European landscapes. It’s got proper 3D depth to it and extreme terrain this time, comprising craggy mountain tops, low lying valleys and spewing volcanoes. [More]

Nvidia Rumoured To Be Combating R9 380X With GeForce GTX 960 Ti Launch In Jan 2016

Written by Joffy S on 26 November 2015 at 17:06

Reports are emerging Nvidia is preparing to reveal its GeForce GTX 960 Ti graphics card soon, with the aim of going toe-to-toe with AMD’s recently launched Radeon R9 380X. Targeted firmly at the mid-range market, the GeForce GTX 960 Ti is expected to cost somewhere in the region of $250. This fills the gap between the GTX 960 and the GTX 970, priced at $199 and $329 accordingly.

Rather than running on a modified version of the GM206 GPU, the GeForce GTX 960 Ti will in fact run on a cut down version of the GM204 GPU used in both the GTX 970 and GTX 980. This is because the GTX 960 is already running on a fully unlocked version of the GM206, so there’s no additional performance to be gained. [More]
