AMD’s Vega architecture is on track for launch in Q2

 
At their Q1 2017 earnings call, AMD has confirmed that their Vega GPU architecture is on track for a Q2 launch. This means that AMD’s new Vega architecture has not been delayed and that the new architecture will have been launched by late June. 
 
In their earnings call, AMD also highlighted Vega’s key architectural enhancements, from their new memory sub-systems, next-generation geometry pipeline and new compute engine designs. At this time the performance impact of these features is unknown, though they will certainly make Vega competitive in the server/compute market. 

  


  • AMD’s “Vega” GPU architecture is on track to launch in Q2, and has been designed from scratch to address the most data- and visually-intensive next-generation workloads with key architecture advancements including: a differentiated memory subsystem, next-generation geometry pipeline, new compute engine, and a new pixel engine.
