AMD Radeon RX Vega News: Why You Should Be Excited About It
AMD’s upcoming Radeon RX Vega family of GPUs is primarily targeting enthusiastic PC gamers as the product promises to greatly enhance graphics of PC and virtual reality games. It is highly-anticipated among gamers as it aims to revolutionize the way gaming machines process data to render high-quality graphics like never before. Here are the things you need to know about this exciting new tech product.
It is amazing to see highly-rendered images on screens and monitors, and this is what tech companies are striving to achieve. Previous AMD cards utilized Polaris architecture and LiquidVR technology, which makes it capable of delivering good VR (virtual reality) experience. However, without high-end memory support, it's impossible to deliver a fully immersive virtual reality gaming performance.
Per Digital Trends, this is how AMD Radeon RX Vega comes in to solve the problem as a next generation GPU, or graphics processing unit. GPUs are used primarily for 3D applications, and they come in the form of a single-chip processor that works by creating realistic lighting effects to change objects every time a 3D scene is redrawn. Due to its mathematically-intense tasks, this would put quite a strain on the CPU, but not with the Radeon RX Vega.
According to Seeking Alpha, the latest graphics processing product makes things way easier for your CPU. AMD plans to launch its new high-end HBM2 (high-bandwidth memory) powered graphics cards in 4GB and 8GB variants using its Vega-architecture within few weeks. Rumors say the product might debut during the Computex convention on May 30, but AMD may delay its launch at a special event prior to E3 2017 starting June 13.
The AMD Radeon RX Vega cards are marketed to be more powerful than AMD's RX series cards released last year using Polaris architecture. This flagship of the company promises to deliver graphics card that can finally compete with the very top-end of rival Nvidia’s GPU stack. These Vega-based cards will outshine even Nvidia's (NASDAQ: NVDA) most powerful graphics card for gaming, while also delivering smooth 4K display.
