While it’s impressive that ASRock, which only entered the GPU manufacturing world in March, is already working towards a second-generation Radeon RX series, we’re disappointed that there doesn’t seem to be any movement on a new architecture. It also sets a baffling precedent that the Radeon RX Vega 64will remain the highest-end GPU from AMD into early next year.

Of course, we have to keep in mind that AMD would be more likely to announce its next-gen GPU family at a larger industry gathering, or at one of its own events. And this publicly revealed presentation also wouldn’t necessarily reveal all of ASRock’s future plans, so there may be more here than meets the eye.

The whole computing world is practically holding its collective breath for a new graphics card launch, but according to ASRock’s official AMD GPU roadmap, it seems we still have quite a while to wait.

ASRock recently revealed a graphics card roadmap up to February 2019 that only includes the existing Radeon Polaris 500-series and AMD Vega GPUs. Interestingly, rather than it coming out via a leak or rumor, the hardware maker publicly presented its roadmap at the XFastest Network event in Taipei.

A hulking, full-tower PC is always your best option if you want room for multiple graphics cards, general upgrades, or all the terabytes of storage you could ever reasonably afford. But these days, you don’t necessarily need one if you want a powerful PC that can handle editing high-def or 4K video, playing new AAA games at 4K, and powering virtual-reality (VR) headsets.

As more and more PC enthusiasts and boutique-PC builders have shown interest in compact performance systems, many case makers have offered up comparatively compact chassis that have room for midsize or even full-size graphics cards. For instance, the shoebox-shaped SilverStone Sugo SG12 has room enough for a graphics card over a foot long. That means the largest and most powerful cards available, such as the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti or AMD’s Radeon RX Vega 64, should have plenty of clearance in that case.

The similarly compact Cougar QBX Ultra Compact Pro Gaming Mini-ITX Case has an even smaller footprint, and it has nearly 14 inches of clearance for beastly graphics cards. Just note that specialized compact cases like these usually require a MicroATX or Mini-ITX motherboard, rather than a more standard (and often less expensive) full-size ATX motherboard. Their unusual proportions mean that they may be able to take big video cards, but not big mainboards.

Adobe recently released the new version of Photoshop, and it is relatively faster and smoother than the previous versions. However, it might still crash.

Photoshop uses GPU, both for calculations of certain tasks and accelerating some features such as the Camera Raw filter, blur tools, and perspective warp. According to Adobe, not all the consumer grade graphics cards are tested, and they recommend using the latest system and GPU hardware to make the most of the GPU features inside Photoshop.

So, before formatting your operating system and uninstalling Photoshop, here is a quick tip for you to try. GPU drivers may crash when the related software keeps busy too long with the calculations. Windows do this on purpose to prevent locking the system and automatically sets a value for the time that will allow these calculations. This timing value is called TDR, or Timeout Detection Recovery. Increasing the default value of TDR will allow the driver to complete the calculations and will prevent driver-related software crashes.

To change the TDR value, simply go to Start, and then open the Run command. In the Run command window, type “regedit” to access the registry window. Navigate to: Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\GraphicsDrivers in the left panel. If you choose the GraphicsDrivers menu on the left, you will see the related files on the right panel. There, double-click the TdrDelay, select Decimal, and enter a greater value. By default, it might be as low as 10, so I simply entered 60. Repeat the same steps for TdrDdiDelay, then reboot your computer.
