AMD Introduces mGPU – Successor to Crossfire

AMD recently released a driver to enable their Multi GPU technology for their Vega 64 and Vega 56 graphics cards. They never used the word Crossfire, AMD’s term for Multi GPU rendering, even once.Kind of strange considering this driver was supposed to do just that, enable crossfire, Right? Wrong.

MSI’s GTX 1080 Gaming X RGB unveiled

MSI has finally revealed their latest GTX 1080 offering under the moniker ‘Gaming X’ christened GTX 1080 Gaming X.
