    Looks like a really solid suite of improvements. Especially encouraged that they are looking at DX9 - DX11 instead of just DX12. Can't wait. Feels like AMD is really reinvigorated lately - let hope this momentum sees through regular driver updates, next gen GPU and finally Zen.

    We've known this for a while but is still big to see confirmation they are actively working on it:

    Working with monitor vendors to enable AMD Freesync through HDMI

    I'm looking forward to testing the new drivers once they're released.

    Can't wait for this and am super optimistic about the new platform moving forward as well. 2016 should be a good year for AMD software on both the Windows and Linux front. I hope their 14/16nm hardware lives up to the hype on both the CPU/GPU fronts.

    I was going to have an article for you all today, alas I've been extremely busy on something else, you will soon see.

    I may be able to put something together later if its worth it, but I think most of the info is pretty straight forward.

    I guess that second part of Nano Review + Fallout 4 full review can make things kinda difficult.. :p
