AMD has announced its new Radeon Vega Frontier Edition graphics card, which isn't part of the consumer graphics card family, but instead the Radeon Pro line.
Radeon Vega Frontier Edition rocks 16GB of next-gen HBM2 memory, an estimated 12.5 TFLOPs of performance (NVIDIA's new TITAN Xp has 12 TFLOPs) of single precision compute performance, while we have the Vega GPU clocked at 1586MHz.
AMD detailed its Radeon Vega Frontier Edition specs with 64 next-gen compute units (nCU - 4096 stream processors), 12.5 TFLOPs of single precision compute performance (FP32), 25 TFLOPs of single precision compute (FP16), 16GB of HBM2 alongside HBC, and 8K display support.
AMD compared its new Vega-based Radeon Vega Frontier Edition against the Radeon R9 Fury X graphics card, with a 1.5x increased in FP32 performance, 3x increase in FP16 performance, and 4 x the VRAM with 16GB of HBM2 versus 4GB of HBM1 on Fury X.
The front of the Radeon Vega Frontier Edition looks plain, but it's not aimed at gamers with flashy LEDs - this just needs to work with its blower fan, TITAN Xp style.
There's not much going on at the back, except for that slick AF blue/yellow backplate - I love it.
Moor Insights & Strategy have posted a new research brief titled "AMD Lays The Foundations For Machine Learning With Radeon Vega Frontier & Optimized Software" which talks about AMD's next-gen Vega graphics cards, and how they will compete in a market dominated by NVIDIA.
