AMD announces Radeon RX Vega, next-gen GPU coming soon

Radeon RX Vega announced, HBM2, HBC, and Vega are around the corner

AMD has finally announced the name of its next generation graphics card family: Radeon RX Vega. AMD announced the news during their Capsaicin and Cream event at GDC 2017.


Radeon RX Vega will have some incredible technology powering it, with AMD's next-gen Vega GPU architecture, as well as what I'm most excited for: High Bandwidth Cache. HBC will be providing some huge performance improvements versus "traditional VRAM mode" - something RTG boss Raja Koduri showed off on stage with Deus Ex: Mankind Divided.

Koduri also talked about the Packed Math compute performance of Vega, saying that "doing FP16 and FP32 units" are "like having twice as many shader units" for specific tasks.

Note: Radeon RX Vega will be separate to the upcoming, and unannounced Radeon RX 500 series - which should be announced in the coming months.
