AMD goes to Hollywood
AMD has announced that the company has created AMD Studios, to work closely with Hollywood producers and studios.
7nm next gen Radeon
All eyes are on the Vega that is supposed to launch early next week, but we would not be Fudzilla unless we were able to get something about the next one down the line.
Official specs, pricing but no bench
AMD has shared a few updates on the highly anticipated HBM 2 based Vega architecture and we finally know the official specs.
Sounds about right
A few days ago, Videocards had an update on the engineering samples that got leaked.
July 30 is the first day
Vega is delayed and while AMD said it will arrive in Q2 2017, it won't.
Vega for scientists, engineers, and designers
Raja Koduri, Senior Vice President and Chief Architect of RTG, took to the stage at the 2017 Financial Analyst Day and showed the new Vega Frontier Edition graphics card. This Vega is made for data scientists, immersion engineers, and product designers.
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.
CPUs and GPUs are on 14/16 nm
Keith Kressin, a Qualcomm senior vice president, product management, reminded us how the world changed in the last ten years and that the mobile industry leads the transition to smaller manufacturing nodess. With Snapdragon 835 being the first 10nm, the mobile SoC with Qualcomm on helm takes the lead beating CPU and GPU industry to a new manufacturing node.
Return of the GPU Jedi
Nvidia, as you have seen, did an amazing job gaining a lot of the GPU high end and mainstream market. Pascal worked out great on the desktop and notebook, but it would be naive to expect that AMD is not going to come back with a vengeance.
Next, next generation
Vega 10 will evolve to Vega 20 in 2017 and 2018 and this will be AMD’s next big thing. It is codenamed Navi and will be a 7nm FinFET GlobalFoundries product that should surface in late 2018 or early 2019.
