AMD Confirms RX Vega Won’t Support 3-Way, 4-Way, Crossfire Configurations

This site may earn affiliate commissions from the links on this page. Terms of use. For the last fourteen years, AMD and Nvidia have both supported multi-GPU configurations. Initially, these types of systems were limited to two GPUs using either Nvidia’s SLI technology (the acronym dates back to 3dfx) or AMD’s Crossfire. When Windows Vista launched, the supported number of video cards grew to encompass three-way or even four-way configurations. That era, it seems, is coming to an end. When Nvidia launched its Pascal family, it made it clear SLI ...

Apple Accidentally Confirms It’s Building 4K, HDR-Capable Apple TV

This site may earn affiliate commissions from the links on this page. Terms of use. Apple, historically, has absolutely hated leaks. Much of this was driven by Steve Jobs, who famously fired four people he caught leaking a memo to the press not long after rejoining the company. With his passing, Apple information pops up a bit more often than it did before. This latest leak isn’t provided by a company scofflaw, however — it’s an inadvertent unveil by Apple itself.

Asrock Confirms Intel’s Coffee Lake CPUs Will Require New Motherboard

Ever since Coffee Lake appeared on various leaked Intel roadmaps, there have been questions about whether it would be supported on existing 200-series motherboards. Back when Intel used a Tick-Tock model, there was less uncertainty–LGA 1155 supported Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge, Z87 supported Haswell and Devil’s Canyon (Z97 supported Broadwell as well), and the 100 & 200 Series both support Skylake and Kaby Lake. Intel’s new PAO (Process – Architecture – Optimization) process made it plausible that the company would continue to support newer chips on older platforms, but ...
