Radeon Instinct MI8 

Released December, 2016
  • 1 GHz
  • 4 GB

With the Xbox One now being based on an x86 architecture, and the operating system sounding suspiciously similar to Windows 8, it should be very easy to port games to Windows 8.1.

AMD Releases Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.8.1

by Scott Michaud |
AMD is continuing their trend of steadily releasing graphics drivers, and rapidly fixing important issues as they arise.
Beyond adding support for these new products, it also adds a Crossfire profile for F1 2016 and fixes a few issues, like Firefox and Overwatch crashing under certain circumstances.
Meanwhile based on this die shot Chipworks believes that the L2 cache has been reorganized to a per-core design, as there is no obvious single block of L2 on A8 like there was A7.
The final major identifiable block on A8 is once again the SRAM cache memory.
The tougher question is what its typical throughput will be in end-user workloads, which can be variable enough and contain enough dependencies to challenge dynamic optimization routines.
The ‘Super Dual Core’ as Nvidia calls it is a highly efficient architecture (ARMv8 -A) and the first iteration of ARM to feature 64 bit.
Apart from supporting real-time HDR video, Xiaomi Mi 4 camera also records 4K videos at 30 frames per second.
