Got a new rig to show off or just want help with the latest Tech, if it’s for PC this is the place.

AMD VEGA

Post by MadManCK » Wed Aug 31, 2016 12:13 am

Despite rumors about an earlier launch this year, AMD sticks to the original plan to launch VEGA in the first half of 2017.

They are targeting 7nm for 2018. Too soon® ? The smaller manufacturing standards are causing issues already. Including low yields.

But the 16Gb HBM2 on the Vega that will be released in the second half of this year will be targeting the GTX1080Ti, that will be interesting.

7nm damn, Intel isn't even doing that yet, i love to see Radeon lead the way again, but maybe they should just focus on the thing at hand now and just get the VEGA cards out now.

According to 3D MK TimeSpy benches, Vega will be as fast or faster than a GTX1080ti. :o

After AMD stock plunged ridiculous on 1st quarter results, i bought another bunch of them. :party:

RX Vega will be introduced 31 of May. A lot sooner than expected.

Lisa Su should get an action figure :lol:

First VEGA cards hit the shelves. VEGA Frontier Edition.
Pre-order for 1.200$ that is Titan X territory.

But these cards are targeted at scientific and professional users. A bargain for prosumers.

Image

One more thing;

PG100 10.3 TFLOPS
Vega 13.1 TFLOPS

About 30% faster in applications that use specific demands. And that is compared to the Nvidia Quadro 5.000$ cards.
Are they doing the same to Nvidia as they are doing to Intel now.... :think:

PS; As Nvidia has refused to give me any upgrade options for my now "obsolete" TitanXP, i will look very closely to VEGA for my next flagship upgrades.
But rumors are that Nvidia will push their Volta release forward. Just like Intel was forced to do with Coffee Lake.
Nothing beats some competition. And just for doing that AMD should be rewarded.

PPS; Volta will use GDDRX2 or X3 and no HBM. So VEGA will have the edge in memory bandwidth. And with these new GPU architectures, we have already seen what a couple of Mhz more RAM speed can do for performance. Especially FPS consistency. Being part of the HBM development must pay off.
Nvidia has stated that using HBM2 will be too expensive for their consumer cards. Weren't their top tier cards not already too expensive for consumers?
