Radeon RX Vega 

Released April, 2017
  • 1.5 GHz
  • 8 GB

HBM2 is the memory technology that will be used on Radeon RX Vega, offering some great bandwidth numbers of up to 512GB/sec - but it'll be the memory footprint that makes the difference.

We have a new 14nm FinFET GPU, higher GPU clocks alongside enhanced idle and multi-monitor efficiencies, with plenty of custom cards along the way, there are tens of millions who could find a new graphics card upgrade with the RX 500 series.

In The News From around the web

Polaris was destined to be the new mid-range champion, and it became that - but not without multiple problems along the way.
NVIDIA continued pummel AMD with the push of the GeForce GTX 980 Ti, and then AMD began teasing its Polaris GPU architecture - months after the company spun off its GPU division into Radeon Technologies Group.
AMD is promising some more fluid gameplay with RX 580 and Radeon Chill, thanks to fewer frames being queued to your display, you can reduce the response time of the frames being rendered by 64%, down to 6ms from 16.7ms..
The news headline cycle only cares about high-end products, but the sell through numbers on RX 560/550 are going to be huge in overseas markets like China, where there are tens of millions of gamers that would jump at a new $99 graphics card.
It's also an incredibly confusing naming scheme that NVIDIA has adopted, but before I get into that - let's look at NVIDIA's previous TITAN X graphics cards, and their official (and unofficial) names.
AMD will thump down its new Vega architecture with a truly next-gen series of graphics cards in the Radeon RX Vega family, led by HBM2 and HBC technologies.
My response was met with a sly smile, and then Polaris hit the mainstream sub $300 market in a big way.
I'd love to have Vega 10 in my hands before I talk performance, but just from the technology side of things - I'm vibrating with excitement.
