Radeon Pro Duo Launched, OnePlus 3 w/ 6GB, Nokia buys Withings

Its Tuesday April 26th. A huge shout out to all you who are subscribed. We just hit 900 000 this morning. So a big thank you to all of you and hopefully we’ll get to celebrate one million soon! But for now, THE NEWS.

 

It has finally launched! The Radeon Pro Duo graphics card. For those of you who have been living under a rock and don’t know what the Pro Duo is, here’s a brief summary.  Its pretty much 2 fiji chips on a single PCB with 4GB of HBM. To make sure the card doesnt overheat, its cooled with a closed loop water cooler. The card has 3 full sized displayport connectors and one full sized hdmi. For power it needs 3 8 pin pcie connectors. AMD is saying that this card is targeted towards VR developers. With that in mind, you can still play regular games with it, but you should probably save your money on something else. Like i mentioned earlier, the Pro Duo launches today at a price of $1500.

 

Its still a few months away but the Oneplus 3 may have been spotted on some benchmarks that were leaked under the codename Rain A3000, but there are seemingly different specs which could mean different versions of the phone. According to the geekbench results, the 3 will have 6GB of ram for one variant. FOr GFXbench, the 3 is noted to be running android 6.0.1 marshamallow with a snap dragon 820, 5 inch display, NFC, 15megapixel rear camera with a 7 megapixel camera on the front. This model was noted having 4GB of ram. Whether or not these bench results are real, a 6GB phone with NFC from Pneplus.. Yes please. What do you guys think? Leave a comment.
