AMD updates GPU roadmap, announces Radeon Vega 'Frontier Edition'

AMD updates GPU roadmap, announces Radeon Vega 'Frontier Edition'

Nvidia just announced its new Tesla V100 based on the Volta architecture, so it's not surprising that AMD is firing back with details of its new Frontier Edition.

The great and the good of AMD were out in force last night at their Financial Analyst Day where they took the wraps off the first Vega card set to launch in June, the Titanesque Radeon Vega Frontier Edition. AMD is pitching this as "the world's most powerful solution for machine learning and advanced visualization", with the muscle to handle demanding design, rendering and intelligence workloads.

AMD provided estimated performance specifications of 12.5 TFLOPS in peak FP32 single precision compute and 25 TFLOPS of peak FP16 compute.

The Galaxy S8 measures 5.86 x 2.68 x 0.31 inches while the dimensions of the Galaxy S8 Plus is 6.00 x 3.09 x 0.31 inches. Speaking of design, Pocket-lint mentioned that both smartphones utilize the metal and glass sandwich design.

Rise of the Tomb Raider limited to 2GB of memory, with AMD's high-bandwidth cache controller off (left) and then on (right).

KitGuru Says: If you didn't get what you were looking for out of today's announcements from AMD, then perhaps hang tight until the 31st as there will be an additional Computex conference then. These include data centers, networking applications, high performance processors and deep learning supercomputing. Vega FE Gold features a sealed liquid cooler, similar the one used on the Fury X. It's not yet known if performance between the two cards will differ (at the very least, the Gold version will sustain its boost speeds for longer due to better cooling), but both will certainly suck down power.

Machine learning. Together with AMD's ROCm open software platform, Radeon Vega Frontier Edition enables developers to tap into the power of Vega for machine learning algorithm development.

The AMD Radeon Vega Frontier is ideal GPU to consider for VR content development as it supports the AMD's LiquidVR technology. The chip has enhanced the game creation by providing a single GPU optimized for every stage of a game developer's workflow including asset production to testing and performance optimization.

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.
