But it is not all roses
AMD will announce Vega at its 2017 Financial Analyst Day and of course none other than Raja Koduri will share a few more details with us.
Nvidia is quite happy with the performance of its Geforce GTX 1080 Ti and the new Titan Xp cards, but it seems that it plans to tell us a bit more about the Volta.
Industry sources confirmed
Well informed industry sources have confirmed to Fudzilla that Vega 10 GPU lines will launch in the first half of 2017. AMD’s Radeon Technology Group might start briefings about the Vega 10 in December, but it won’t launch it until the first half of 2017.
Replaces Vega 10, 32GB HBM 2
Vega 10 is Radeon Technology Group’s first HBM 2 part and should launch in early 2017. AMD – RTG is also planning a successor called Vega 20 that might launch later in the year.
Slightly faster than P100
Vega 10 is coming next year and it seems that it will be faster than the P100 card. P100 (21.2 TFlops) is a supercomputer part and has much higher theoretical performance than GP102 (10.97 TFlops). According to the raw numbers, AMD Vega 10 with 24Tflops, Vega 10 will significantly outperform Geforce Titan X.
While Vega sticks with 14nm
A little birdie told us that Nvidia is giving its Volta the 16nm FinFET treatment. This product uses stacked DRAM too so it looks like the whole thing will be pretty bleeding edge.
Jen-Hsun Huang just announced Pascal P100 a new GPU based on Pascal architecture, and it is in production, shipping "soon."
The future of graphics
High Bandwidth Memory (HBM) will define the future of graphics and it looks like Samsung will be ready to release products using the technology soon.
Fudzilla told you about it in April
Fudzilla reported back in April about AMD's upcoming Exascale Heterogeneous Processor (EHP) with 16 cores and a Greenland APU, and now it seems that the rest of the world has caught up to the news.
