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 [...]

Nvidia Volta Titan X Leaked by Intern?

Though Nvidia’s GPU roadmap shows that Volta consumer graphics card won’t be coming until 2018, a Facebook post may have leaked the very first glimpse at what the Titan X Volta could look like.

The card in question sports a never-before-seen cooling shroud bearing the “Titan” logo. It uses an 8-pin and 6-pin power connector. Aside from the obvious appearance features, sharp-eyed users have also pointed out that it lacks the SLI connector. In its place are little notches (just above the logo) that bear resemblance to the NVLink connectors on the recently announced Nvidia GV100 workstation card.

NVIDIA Introduces Vulkan Support with Latest Driver Update

With the recent release of their GeForce 358.66 Game Ready Driver, NVIDIA has introduced Vulkan support; the next-generation successor to the 3D graphics API OpenGL, which is developed by the Khronos. Vulkan is heavily based on AMD’s Mantle API, which the company retired with the adoption of Microsoft’s DirectX 12. So, it is definitely interesting to see NVIDIA embrace it, but not all that surprising considering its expected popularity. The new driver also is reported to add support for upcoming NVIDIA GPU architectures, Pascal and Volta.

It is interesting to see them starting to add support for not only their next GPU architecture, but even the one after [...]

GTC 2013: Nvidia Maxwell and Volta Next Generation GPU Architectures

Recently at Nvidia’s GTC (GPU Technology Conference) 2013 conference, Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang talked briefly about Nvidia’s GPU roadmap containing next generation Maxwell and Volta GPU architectures.

Whereas current generation Kepler’s major feature is dynamic parallelism, Maxwell furthers this with a unified virtual memory. This allows the memory in the GPU to be accessed directly by the CPU, and memory in the CPU to be accessed via the GPU, which in turn helps increase power efficiency, performance and promote better programmability. Maxwell, which was first introduced to us in late 2010 appears to be coming sometime in 2014 and will be succeeding [...]
