AMD Polaris 10 Provides Impressive GPU Performance
AMD's next generation Polaris GPUs expected to arrive on the market as early as next month will be built using a 14-nanometer FinFET manufacturing process.
Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) officials introduced Polaris, the upcoming GPU architecture, at the 2016 Consumer Electronics Show. They declared that the new AMD GPU architecture will help expand the company's market share in such areas as virtual reality, immersive computing and gaming.
As reported by Fudzilla, the new Polaris 10 will replace existing Radeon R9 390 AMD GPU. "Well-informed" sources are confident that the AMD Polaris 10 GPU should match or outperform Radeon R9 390. In certain circumstances, the new Polaris could even perform better than the R9 390X by a significant margin.
According to Tech Spot, the price of the AMD's R9 390X starts around $399. At lunch of Polaris 10, AMD is reportedly planning to bring the price further down to $299. AMD will apparently highlight the card's power-per-watt metrics and low power consumption as part of its marketing.
Meanwhile, the Polaris 11 is expected to take on the GeForce 950 in terms of performance and to replace the Radeon 370. Both AMD Polaris 10 and Polaris 11 could be unveiled by the high-tech company in June, at Computex.
The 14nm graphics technology that features a FinFET design is promoted by the AMD processor manufacturer and vendor on an online microsite dedicated to the architecture. The website is highlighting the new features present in the graphics chip, from support for next-generation gaming monitors to improved performance and enhanced virtual reality (VR) capabilities.
The 14-nanomter 3D FinFET transistor design implemented in the Polaris 10 and 11 GPUs enables significant improvements in power efficiency and performance. According to company officials, the FinFET PC GPU allows AMD to better compete with rivals like Nvidia and Intel.
According to eWeek, graphics technologies will remain a significant part of AMD's future efforts, enabling the company to stay competitive in growth areas in the industry. Company executives have declared that data center, graphics, high-end PCs and semi-custom chips are the key drivers in AMD's strategy to return to sustainable profitability.
