Presents professional 3D-card Radeon Vega Frontier Edition performance of 13 TFLOPS
AMD today introduced a graphics card generation Vega. It is called Radeon Vega Frontier Edition and no relation to the gaming segment has not. To begin with we recall that the first GPU accelerator with Vega was presented at the end of last year. It was a card Radeon MI25 Instinct, but she was focused on machine learning systems.
Despite the fact that Radeon Vega Frontier Edition is a professional gaming accelerator, his announcement is very important, as AMD is finally revealed options Vega the older GPU.
Thus, the accelerator contains a graphics processor with 64 computing modules, which include 4096 stream processors, which fully corresponds to all earlier rumors and leaks. Performance nearly 13 TFLOPS (FP32) and 25 TFLOPS (FP16). This in turn allows us to calculate the approximate core frequency is around 1600 MHz. The card is equipped with 16 GB of memory HBM2 with a bandwidth of 480 GB/s, but the game solution is likely to get twice less.
As you can see in the chart above, for pure performance a new much superior to the Radeon Fury X, but why the comparison is with game graphics, is unclear. But the chart below you can see a more valid comparison with Nvidia Titan Xp.
If you believe the tests AMD Radeon Vega Frontier Edition is significantly ahead of its competitor, and this means that the game map on the GPU Vega could compete with the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti.
In addition, AMD introduced the Radeon version of Vega Frontier Edition with liquid cooling system. Apparently, in addition to directly FROM it is no different from the above-described card.
Also showed Radeon Pro Vega SSG — accelerator with integrated solid state drives. More precisely, it is only telling, not showing «live» card. It is known that the adapter received one SSD capacity of 2 TB with support for the NVMe. This map aims to work with 8K video in real time, rendering high resolution videos, creating content for VR, medical and scientific visualization, and so on. Given that this accelerator as Radeon Vega Frontier Edition, features a pair of eight-pin power connectors, it can be assumed that its characteristics are about the same.
Submitted accelerators will arrive on the market next month. Prices have not been named.
