AMD briefly shows the RX Vega Nano

AMD RX Vega 10 Lineup Leaked Vega 11 12 & 20 GPUs confirmed

In terms of performance, AMD suggests the RX Vega 64 will "trade blows" with NVIDIA's popular GeForce GTX 1080.

While AMD's Threadripper CPUs and RX Vega GPUs caught the bulk of the attention at Siggraph 2017, AMD had plenty more mouth-watering hardware announcements as well. Crank up your graphics quality and bring out every detail at incredible resolutions with the revolutionary "Vega" architecture.

Because of the likelihood that these cards will be snapped up by cryptocurrency miners just like the Radeon RX 500 series, prices could be driven up and gamers could end up frustrated.

The RX Vega 56 GPU comes with 56 next-gen Compute units (see what they did there?) and therefore 3,584 GCN cores.

A short explainer video concerning the High Bandwidth Cache Controller, with Nick Thibieroz and Raja Koduri, Ubisoft and Bethesda.

The GPUs will be available August 14, with prices starting at $399. The DX12 and Vulkan graphics API enabled gaming engine/games software optimized for the new Vega GPU micro-arch will also be of more relevence this time around as more games are becoming developed with the DX12/Vulkan APIs in mind.

In brief, AMD unveiled the details of a new "x86" microprocessor called the "Ryzen Threadripper", with 8, 12 or 16 "CPU cores" per chip, created to be its highest-performing desktop microprocessor.




This weekend AMD is hosting an event in Los Angeles for its next generation graphics cards and we've gotten our first look at the hotly anticipated GPU.

The massive high-speed memory of the Radeon Pro SSG combined with the "Vega" GPU architecture's enormous computation capabilities also enables stunning next-generation workflows, unlocking huge data sets and real-time responsiveness. It can push out 13.7 Teraflops because of its clock speed can reach 1677MHz as opposed to 1546MHz for the is the regular Vega 64 and 1471MHz for the Vega 56.

Extreme enthusiasts, however, will want to keep their eyes on the water-cooled version, which has base and boost clocks of 1406 MHz and 1677MHz respectively.

With regards to performance, the 56 variant comes with an 1156MHz base clock and 410GB/s memory bandwidth, along with 8GB of HBM2.

Of course, we do not expect the RX Vega Nano to launch in August with the rest of the RX Vega lineup, but it should come eventually, probably in September, when AMD AIB partners start launching their own custom versions. However, AMD did not reveal the complete information regarding the Limited Edition.

"Customers get $100 off if a select AMD Ryzen 7 1700X or Ryzen 7 1800X CPU and motherboard combo are purchased and $200 off if a Samsung 34" Ultra WQHD curved monitor with quantum dot and Radeon free sync technology is bought.
