At CES 2019, AMD CEO Dr. Lisa SU spoke on several products at their keynote and while many users were disappointed that AMD did not announce a rumored $250 GPU that would give GTX 1080 class performance, AMD did surprise the world by announcing the world’s first 7nm GPU for the consumer market. Rather than being built on the Navi architecture, the new GPU is based on the second iteration of Vega, and will be named Radeon VII. The new GPU is expected to bring performance comparable to the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 and GTX 1080TI.
This year marks the first time that AMD has ever had a keynote at CES, and this product was definitely a shocker. The Radeon VII [...]
Low package yield rates may be to blame for AMD Vega graphics cards shortages according to a recent report by DigiTimes.
Unlike traditional graphics cards, AMD Vega graphics cards have both the GPU and the memory integrated in a common interposer layer for improved performance. The newspiece claims that according to sources from the supply chain, manufacturing is experiencing difficulty integrating high-bandwidth (HBM) memory into the GPU interposer. While it’s unclear why this is the case, several sources believe it could potentially be due to problems with Advanced Semiconductor Engineering’s (ASE) packaging technology which is used on AMD Vega [...]
AMD is showing some serious love for content creators at SIGGRAPH 2017 with two major new graphics cards, the Radeon Pro WX 9100 and the Radeon Pro SSG.
AMD Radeon Pro WX 9100
The AMD Radeon Pro WX9100 is the first Pro graphics card that was shown off. The card features 64 next generation compute units capable of delivering up to 12.3 TFLOPs of Single Precision FP32 compute performance. Included is also, 16GB of HBC (High Bandwidth Cache) memory with ECC delivering up to 484 GB/s of memory bandwidth. Content creators with multi-displays will also appreciate the included six DisplayPort 1.4 ports, each capable of delivering up to 8K at 60Hz [...]
After about a year since we first heard about AMD Vega, AMD has finally announced the new graphics card, marking AMD’s return to the enthusiast graphics market after years of sitting on the sidelines.
AMD’s RX Vega lineup will consist of two new graphics cards, the RX Vega 64 and the RX Vega 56.
AMD Radeon RX Vega 64
The Radeon RX Vega 64 is AMD’s flagship RX Vega graphics card. The 64 in its name signifies the number of next generation compute units in the GPU, which in this case is 64. Multiply this number by 64 Stream Processors per compute unit and you get a total of 4096 Stream Processors.
Some keen-eyed Redditors recently spotted AMD’s Vega 10, Vega 11, Vega 12 and Vega 20 on the Eurasian Economic Commission, or ECC’s, website, confirming the existence of of all the cards. The website also shared some SKU and model information as well.

AMD’s highly anticipated Radeon RX Vega isn’t expected to launch until AMD’s SIGGRAPH event at the end of this month, but it appears that at least one crafty individual has already gotten his hands on one of these cards an decided to leak some more 3D Mark scores to the world.
The leaker shared three runs of 3D Mark Fire Strike where the RX Vega card was able to achieve 20,949, 22,291, and 22,330. This puts the performance of the RX Vega somewhere on par with the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080. This is consistent with previous leaks from the 3D Mark 11 database.
According to the leaked screenshots, the [...]

AMD unveiled its first purchasable Vega GPU during its Financial Analyst Day meeting. The AMD Vega Frontier Edition is aimed at professionals requiring heavy compute performance: data scientists, engineers, and product designers. This move is undoubtedly to steal some thunder from the newly announced Nvidia Tesla V100 graphics card and to gain market share in the machine learning and data science sector.
The Vega Frontier Edition packs 64 Next-Gen Compute Unit, dubbed nCU. In total, they carry 4,096 SMPs. As promised, the card also comes with 16GB of HBM2 memory, which means that it will have four stacks 4GB memory chips on its interpose. [...]
Nvidia dropped a bombshell at their GPU Technology Conference today, launching their new DGX-1 supercomputer platform powered by the new Volta GPU architecture.
As expected the new Nvidia DGX-1 is a beast of a system, equipped with eight of Nvidia’s latest Volta powered Tesla V100 GPUs linked together using Nvidia’s NVLink technology which features a massive bandwidth of up to 300GB/s. The system in total is capable of outputting up to 960 Tensor TFLOPS making it as powerful as approximately 400 general compute servers.
Powering the Nvidia DGX-1 is the Tesla V100 which is powered by Nvidia’s latest Volta [...]
Kicking off the Solidworks World conference currently being held in Los Angeles, California, Nvidia recently announced that the supergrandaddy GP100 GPU has finally trickled its way into a Quadro workstation card.
Known by its street name, “The Big Pascal”, the GP100 GPU is the massive GPU powering the Tesla P100 which features 16.5 billion transistors spread across a 610mm² die. In comparison, the GP102 GPU used in the flagship consumer Titan X has just 12 billion transistors and a 471mm² die.
The new card, known as the Quadro GP100 is so powerful and in a class of its own, Nvidia didn’t even bother changing the name of the card to line [...]
