Following the recent report that AMD is exploring splitting itself up or potentially selling off business units, there's now a rumor out there that Microsoft has set its sights on AMD.
This week AMD launched the Radeon R9 Fury X at $649 for this "Fiji" GPU with High Bandwidth Memory that's liquid cooled. The Fury X is AMD's strongest competition to NVIDIA in years, but sadly this high-end graphics card appears to be in very short supply.
David Airlie landed some of the OpenGL 4.x code he's been playing with for AMD's RadeonSI Gallium3D driver on the HD 7000 series GPUs and newer.
AMD's new 64-bit ARM Opteron quad-core development board coming out later this year at an "affordable" price has us quite excited since it was announced earlier this week at the Red Hat Summit. ARM has now revealed the first pictures of this board.
Some AMD news this week that got me even more excited than the Radeon R9 Fury X launch is word that they are developing a low-cost ARM development board for release later this year. This affordable development board will feature a quad-core AMD Opteron A1100 Series processor.
After being announced earlier this month and the Radeon Rx 300 series launching last week, the $649+ R9 Fury X water-cooled graphics card launches today. With the launch comes a whole bunch of (Windows) reviews too.

SPIR-V, the heart of OpenCL 2.1+ and The Khronos Group's forthcoming Vulkan specification, is a step closer to being worked on within the LLVM compiler stack.
While the new AMDGPU kernel DRM driver is being added to the Linux 4.2 kernel as the next-gen driver for supporting Tonga, Carrizo, and all other new AMD graphics hardware, the 4.2 version will not support AMD's newly-announced Fiji GPUs.
SUSE in cooperation with AMD continues working on the HSA (Heterogeneous System Architecture) support inside the GCC compiler stack.

With the Linux 4.2 kernel that's soon to enter development, it's adding the new "AMDGPU" DRM driver as needed to support AMD's R9 285 Tonga along with Carrizo APUs and Radeon Rx 300 series graphics cards.
Yesterday I began publishing Linux benchmarks of the AMD A10-7870K APU since picking the "Godavari" APU up earlier this week for adding to the LinuxBenchmarking.com lab. Yesterday's tests focused on the CPU performance while today and in the days ahead will begin sharing the Radeon R7 graphics results as they roll-in.
AMD KERNCZ is a new generation name for an AMD chipset / FCH (Fusion Controller Hub).
While it should come as no surprise, Alex Deucher of AMD tonight submitted the AMDGPU kernel driver code for pulling into DRM-Next so that it can land for the Linux 4.2 kernel merge window.
AMD launched Carrizo today from Computex Taipei and with the rollout they've unveiled the rest of the details on the new A-Series APU design.
AMD is finally out with a big Catalyst Linux driver update!
Another AMD APU box is being added to the LinuxBenchmarking.com automated Linux performance test farm in the basement makeover server room.
Alex Deucher of AMD has filed his main pull request today for the Radeon DRM driver updates to be integrated in the upcoming Linux 4.2 kernel.

To no surprise, this morning AMD officially announced the AMD A10-7870K "Godavari" as the new high-end APU.
Besides Intel DRM updates landing today in DRM-Next for eventual merging into the Linux 4.2 kernel, AMD landed some changes to their HSA kernel driver named AMDKFD.
Nearly one month ago AMD published the open-source code to their new "AMDGPU" kernel driver and the necessary user-space driver changes too. That code is continuing to mature for the Linux 4.2 kernel and for supporting the RadeonSI Gallium3D driver that code is continuing to be polished.
I've found out from various people in the know that AMD has assembled a "tiger team" to tackle outstanding Catalyst driver issues. This tiger team isn't Linux specific, but Linux driver issues will be fully evaluated and tackled by this new group of driver specialists.
AMD has gone back and managed to provide open-source Linux users with support for the VCE 1.0 video encode engine.
On Friday I posted the results showing Ubuntu 15.04 Offers Faster OpenGL For AMD Radeon GPUs On Open-Source. For those wishing to run with a slightly newer kernel and Mesa driver stack, here are fresh open-source AMD Radeon benchmark results with Linux 4.0 and Mesa 10.6-devel.
Another AMD motherboard has been ported to work under Coreboot.
As a quick follow-up to yesterday's article about a new TearFree option for the Radeon X.Org driver as the latest effort to eliminate tearing, that feature is now in Git.
