AMD is still preparing its next-gen Radeon RX Vega graphics card, but before its big launch next month - fingers crossed - the company teased its Vega GPU was used inside of the ridiculously awesome Radeon Pro SSG graphics card, video editing 4K and 8K content at the NAB show in Las Vegas.

AMD used its Radeon Pro SSG with 8K video processing in Adobe Premiere Pro CC 2017, while also using the next-gen card in 4K post-processing with Radeon ProRender, something that's used for rendering high-end graphics. PC World reports that the NAB show is "targeted at the TV and film industry, in which 8K is a growing trend. AMD has been wooing the industry to adopt its GPUs".

 

8K might seem like it's years away, but with RTG boss and ice cream expert Raja Koduri saying that VR needs 16K per eye @ 240Hz for "true immersion", 8K doesn't seem that foreign anymore.
