AMD makes its next step in GPU dominance with Vega

By: Anthony Garreffa | AMD Radeon GPU in Video Cards | Posted: Jan 5, 2017 11:49 pm

It's hard to say what Radeon Vega will perform like apart from the few demos we've seen so far, with Vega 10 powered by 8GB of HBM2 running DOOM at 4K Ultra settings at 60FPS+ as well as Star Wars: Battlefront at the same resolution and 60FPS+.

I'd love to have Vega 10 in my hands before I talk performance, but just from the technology side of things - I'm vibrating with excitement. AMD will be the first with High-Bandwidth Cache, HBM2 on a consumer graphics card, and will finally join NVIDIA in the high-end space for the first time in over 18 months.

 

 

We have to wait a few more months to see if HBM2 and High-Bandwidth Cache will improve gaming performance at lower resolutions like 1080p and 1440p, but I'm sure at 4K and beyond - HBM2 and HBC will be things of wonder.

 

VR gaming and multi-monitor gaming should heavily benefit by the massive bandwidth of HBM2, but again - we'll have to wait and see.

 

The Radeon Rebellion continues.
