something big is going down,
both AMD and Nvidia hiding their card pun intended in pocket
and waiting for each other revealed it first
Here's hoping AMD pulls this together
Thanks @W1zzard! This was a great explanation. It's hard to imagine that Vega can't be a winner, and that AMD hits the ball out of the park.
EDIT: corrected to @btarunr down below after byline correction pointed out to me.
All this is really nice techno mumbo jumbo, but does it beat a 1080 at better price?
all nice but when we'll see a card? Q2...3??
So... Where's the presentation, benchmarks, anything?
See ya Intel, hello AMD!!
I can't wait to change back to the red team!
I am absolutely, 100%, done and over with previews.
A preview after another, after one more.
Enough, just show us the goods (ryzen + vega) already.
Amazing! Simply amazing!
In theory... I hope it'll be equally amazing in practice.
AMD obviously put a lot of work and new tech into this arch. I'd be amazed if it fails. The only question is price.
Oh announce it already
It looks really good on paper. Definitely looks like a winner.
Now, we need benchmarks and performance tests!
The big news Q2 will be that AMD and Nvidia where together all this time, Im cheering for Qualcomm
Were you on integrated graphics, or are you planning on changing your CPU based on a GPU architecture announcement?
This all looks good, but then again so did Fury X, so I'm not counting the chickens before they hatch. Though it would be nice to see some good competition again, and the top end cards back down in the $3-400 again, instead of the mid-range cards being sold at $400+...
I believe this was written by @btarunr .
Man I don't fully understand AMD, their GCN architecture is finally showing it's might with the introduction of DX12 and Vulcan and then AMD goes and makes an entirely new architecture. Will this new NCU engine require 4 years to reach it's potential? Does the consoles have this architecture? Maybe Scorpio? I hope so for AMD's sake.
The hype is real though, I love tech specifics, nearly got a chub readin all that.
My mistake. I apologize @btarunr. Great job!
Release date in the next 1-2 months?
This sounds almost too good to be true. One thing is the slides, but I wanna know how it works in real life first before I use my hardearned money on it.
It seems AMD is getting ready for a big push into the AI market with Zen and Vega. Perhaps since the money is there and not in super low margin OEM APU sales they will come out of their decade long slump.
About half the Vega features are AI and compute technologies being sold to us gamers as vaporware, don't get me wrong if it works for the price great, but the features they are touting are designed and made more for compute than graphics.
From page 1, first paragraph:
the big news here is the way the units are fed, AMD has added more functions and hardware to ensure that all more of the units are ready to work on more data.
This is logical, seeing as Fury has an high theoretical performance from the GCN compute units, but not always that much more performance.
They basically trying to make a GPU prefetcher.
My concern is all the reference to the drivers to help here, meaning that there will be room for performance improvements when the card finally is released.
Yeah, this is a one size fits all chip, i do not expect it to be as efficient as GP104 (unless AMD has done some magic here) since that chip is a gaming chip through and through, but i might be wrong.
i'm really jaded about AMD..
remember guys that FAILdozer sounded REAL GOOD on paper and those slides made it look like the saviour of cpukind with it's "real" CMP and shedding of "duplicate hardware that is mostly unused", then they failed so hard the echo still sounds like a gong.
so this vega sounds reeeal good, but notice that it's really devoid of performance metrics
