AMD aims to outgun Nvidia's Pascal GPU with new Vega chip

AMD aims to outgun Nvidia's Pascal GPU with new Vega chip

The first graphics card based on AMD's upcoming 14nm FinFET Vega architecture is the Radeon Vega Frontier Edition, AMD revealed at its Financial Analyst Day yesterday.

Aside from Vega, AMD also spend some time looking to the future, laying out the product roadmap from 2017 up to 2020.

AMD is touting performance at around 26 teraflops of half-precision FP16, or roughly 13 teraflops of single-precision FP32. Some have already criticised AMD for its already late release of its vega card and with nvidia's Volta graphic card set to be released in early 2018 which will be even more powerful many are questioning the whole point of AMD's vega graphics cards.

Advanced Visualization: Radon Vega Frontier Edition provides the performance required to drive increasingly large and complex models for real-time visualization, physically-based rendering and virtual reality through the design phase as well as rendering phase of product development.

Ducks rally to defeat Predators, even series at 1-1
On the third goal, Arvidsson sped up the ice, sold Gibson on a shot, before attempting a wraparound that Forsberg finished off. They have made the most of the opportunities they've had to play at home, though. "It's a great sign for a team".

Interestingly, the Radeon RX 560 will launch with a suggest retail price of United States $99.99, which is pretty much the same launch price of the Radeon RX 460, which now sells for as low as U.S. $79.99.

Either way, none of these dart throws suggest the eventual RX Vega will have what it takes to unseat the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti atop the consumer graphics-performance race, as some wild rumors have postulated recently. By contrast, the Titan Xp uses an 8-pin plus 6-pin configuration. It may not be what most people were expecting but it's still an interesting card nonetheless.

The graphics memory equipped with the upcoming GPU will also be unconventional. Following Navi is "Next Gen", which is based on a 7nm+ process.
