AMD has released another driver suite for their Radeon graphics cards, in the form of the 17.11.1 Beta drivers. These bring support, and the best experience, for Call of Duty: WWII, with up to 5% faster performance on Radeon RX Vega64 (8 GB) graphics than with Radeon Software Crimson ReLive Edition 17.10.3 at 2560×1440.

Additionally, this driver brings AMD XConnect technology improvements for Vega 56. XConnect is AMD’s technology that allows seamless plug and play ability for eGPU enclosures, and with this update, AMD is increasing the number of eGPU solutions that support AMD’s RX Vega 56 graphics cards in this configuration. There’s also an extensive list of fixes (including a particularly nasty bug where system devices such as printers could be removed during Radeon Software uninstallation) and known issues, which you can catch after the break. As always, you can download your drivers right here, on the best website of the known universe.

nzxt-h700i-mid-towerBy Hilbert Hagedoorn @ Guru3D

We review the NZXT H700i Mid Tower PC chassis. A nice design chassis with tempered glass and RGB LED lighting + CAM control unit and refined features with the ability to hide your components inside the chassis. NZXT has been around for years, building an ongoing reputation with mostly their controversial chassis designs. It all really started with the Guardian chassis years ago and have ever since put numerous chassis designs out on the market. Rising from the ashes of their crafted series is the Phantom 630 full tower chassis, absolutely impressive in many ways as the design is simply great, the features are grand and then the extras still need to kick in. What about a digital fan controller connected to a plethora of pre-equipped fans?
