We have previously mentioned that AMD is not going to submit to this year’s high-end video card GPU Vega 10. But not so simple, because Coduri Raja, chief Radeon Technologies Group, gave an interesting hints, if not go into details. Recently just flowed different technical specifications the GPU Vega10, Vega 11 and Vega 20, but the information did not concern the consumer market and professional graphics cards Radeon Pro.
At Fudzilla was reported that the first graphics card based on GPU Vega 10, we will see this year. GPU will work with 16 GB of memory HBM 2nd generation. Focusing on the professional segment is not something new, because NVIDIA also introduced the Pascal architecture first as GPU GP100 in Tesla P100 for the professional segment. It was only later, in June, it was announced the first products for the consumer market, albeit in a stripped-down version. Again, the NVIDIA HBM2 used memory, and the ratio of performance FP64 / FP32 / FP16 was 1/2/4. GPU Pascal for the consumer market are somewhat different, probably the same AMD’s approach and decided to use for the architecture Vega compared to Polaris. According to rumors, Vega 10 will provide to 24 TFLOPS performance in FP16 calculations.
This year, most likely, we will see only a graphics card Radeon Pro at GPU Vega 10 with 16 GB of memory HBM2. But it will be available probably not until next year. Also on the market are likely to be released model with less memory. A good opportunity to present the new items will be Supercomputer Conference 2016 (SC16) in mid-November. Pascal Architects together with the GPU, for example, was introduced on the NVIDIA GPU Technology Conference in March. In any case, Radeon Pro on Vega 10 architecture is very interesting video card, because it will assess what AMD is preparing next year for the desktop market.
As usual, all the information given here refers to the category of rumor.
