The AMD Vega release is just around the corner. As a matter of fact, AMD is prepping a whole lineup of Radeon graphics card that is based on their new architecture, Vega. However, the exact name of these graphics card is currently unknown.
AMD Vega Release: The Vega Family
Apparently, the AMD Vega release date might just be sooner that anyone could?ve thought. According to the website Fudzilla, AMD is rolling out their next generation Vega architecture across the entire lineup of its 2017 Radeon graphics cards. As a matter of fact, they also stated that it will be very soon.
The new AMD Vega graphics card lineup will cover pretty much everything the people need in the market. AMD will dish out a graphics card made for 4K 60FPS AAA gaming, which targets the high-end market. In addition, AMD will also offer a mid-range and entry-level graphics cards made for 1080p and even 1440p resolution gaming.
Meanwhile, the highest, as well as the priciest model, will feature an HBM2 memory while the rest are sporting the traditional GDDR5 or even GDDR5X memory. However, Fudzilla?s report suggest that there?s no confirmation whether AMD will be using the traditional GDDR5 memory or the much faster GDRR5X for the mid-range and entry level GPUs.
AMD Vega GPU Beat the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080
Apparently, the AMD Vega is able to outperform NVIDIA?s GTX 1080 by 10% while running Doom in Vulkan API at 4K resolution. The said GPU that put the NVIDIA GTX 1080 slightly to its knees is believed to be sporting an 8GB HBM2 memory.
There?s a lot of competition waiting in the upcoming year of 2017. Apparently, it?s the year where the two arch enemies go head-to-head with each other with their respective GPU architectures. However, NVIDIA still has the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti to counter AMD?s Vega architecture.
In addition, 2017 also happens to be the year where the NVIDIA Volta architecture enters the stage. Gamers, as well as enthusiasts, will have so much to wait for. There?s no doubt that 2017 is the year where the competition finally comes to place, after NVIDIA?s long reign in the market.
