Rumors, rumors and even more rumors; AMD could be working on three models on which there are basically no reliable information available so far. For starters AMD might introduce a standard Vega card, then a high-end air cooled model and also a watercooled one. In other words we might see something similar to the old AMD Fury series.
Up to 16GB of HBM2 memory
AMD’s RX Vega GPU has been spotted again. This time it’s been in the CompuBench database, showcasing new details like clock speeds and amount of memory. According to this latest rumor, AMD Vega will come with more VRAM than expected and some very high clock speeds. This new leak matches what was recently revealed in Linux DRM patches.
With USB 3.1 Gen 2
On their official Facebook page, MSI has shown another small preview regarding their upcoming Intel X299 motherboard. So far this is the second teaser showing yet another area of the upcoming high-end motherboard. Like the previous model the new one features a completely black color scheme with several RGB LEDs.
Featuring VA Quantum Dot panel
Samsung has expanded its curved monitor lineup with two new monitors featuring a 27-inch and a 32-inch panel. Both monitors are based on 2560 x 1440 (WQHD) resolution, 8-bit color support and 1800R curvature. Furthermore both displays come with support for AMD FreeSync which allows for a variable refresh rate that ranges between 60 and 72Hz.

Performance improvement for Prey
Following the launch of Prey, some users have reported issues in combination with their NVIDIA graphics cards. NVIDIA has already been looking into that and today they’re releasing the GeForce 382.19 hotfix driver. According to NVIDIA's changelog this Hotfix only is purely to solve issues with the game Prey. If you do play this game then it’s highly recommendable to get this update, otherwise you can ignore it.
With pre-installed waterblock
Zotac has introduced their new GeForce GTX 1080 Ti ArcticStorm graphics card and it comes with a liquid cooling block. Compared to the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti AMP Extreme we find a pretty conservative factory overclock. However thanks to the full cover waterblock, the card should provide very good gaming performance.
Up to DDR4 3600MHz
With PCIe riser
Even better than Sandy Bridge
Two new CLC coolers
A few years ago, Fractal Design introduced the Kelvin lineup which was based on an expandable design. Now with the Celsius series, the Swedish manufacturer is ready to introduce an improved version. The Celsius S24 and Celsius S36 use 240mm (S24) or 360mm (S36) radiators with integrated fan hubs and standard G1/4" threaded fittings so that you can easily expand the loop to include another waterblock.
The first chip based on Volta
Last night, during the GPU Technology Conference, CEO Jen-Hsun Huang has announced the very first GPU based on the Volta architecture, the Tesla V100. According to him the new chip is the most advanced accelerator ever built, powered by 5120 CUDA cores and over 21 billion transistors. Furthermore the chip features 16GB of HBM2 memory pumping out 900 GB/s of bandwidth.
