AMD Announces Radeon VII Packing Vega II, 16GB HBM, $699 Pricepoint

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 [...]

AMD Reveals Ryzen APUs, Ryzen 2 and Threadripper 2 at CES 2018

Earlier this week, AMD addressed some key questions regarding its upcoming Ryzen APUs.

To set most at ease, the APUS will be fully compatible with AM4 motherboards, with only a BIOS updated needed for newer CPU support. This lowers the cost of entry into the Ryzen platform, with tremendous upgrade options available later on.

Zen APUs are coming in Febuary which feature the Global Foundries 14nm process found in the current generation Ryzen CPUs. Both models will feature quad cores, but the Ryzen 5 2400G features SMT, a base clock of 3.6GHz/boost clock of 3.9GHz and 11 Vega CUs for $169. The Ryzen 3 2200G will lack SMT, be clocked at 3.5GHz/ boosts up to [...]

Intel Adds Core i7-8809G with AMD RX Vega Graphics to Lineup

Several weeks ago, Intel and rival AMD made headlines when the two companies announced that Intel would begin using AMD Vega graphics in some of its mobile CPUs. It appears that the first SKU is finally rolling off the production line with the model name Core i7-8809G.

The Core i7-8809G carries a 4 core, 8 thread CPU. When Intel teased this chip in November 2017, it did so under the moniker “Kaby Lake G”, which suggests that it’ll likely feature Kaby Lake architecture with some tweaks rather than the new Coffee Lake architecture that’s rolling out on some of the newer 8th Generation Core Processors.

The graphics die is the center of discussion of [...]

AMD RTG Chief Raja Koduri Leaves AMD, Joins Intel’s New Core and Visual Computing Group

AMD’s former Radeon Technology Group Chief, Raja Koduri, has had an eventful week. After Hexus recently reported on an internal memo Koduri sent to his staff announcing his departure from AMD, Intel recently sent out a press release announcing that Koduri has joined Intel’s newly formed Core and Visual Computing Group.

Back in September, Koduri announced that he’d be going on a sabbatical for personal reasons. In an email, he explained to his staff that he was taking a temporary break to spend some time with his family. Given that Koduri had just overseen AMD’s launch their latest Vega GPU, it didn’t seem like a huge deal at the time. [...]

RTG Chief Raja Koduri Takes Sabbatical, AMD CEO Lisa Su to Take Helm

Raja Koduri, head of AMD’s Radeon Technology Group (RTG), has recently revealed that he will be going on a sabbatical starting September 25 until December.

According to a recent article at PC Perspective, employees of RTG received the following email:

RTG Team,

You haven’t heard from me collectively in a while – a symptom not only of the whirlwind of launching Vega, but simply of the huge number of demands on my time since the formation of RTG. Looking back over this short period, it is an impressive view. We have delivered 6 straight quarters of double-digit growth in graphics, culminating in the launch of Vega and being back in high-performance. [...]

AMD Vega Graphics Cards Supply Constraint May Continue to October

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 Radeon RX Vega 64, RX Vega 56 Revealed, Launching Aug 14

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.

The base [...]
