AMD Radeon Pro SSG Breaks Terabyte Memory Barrier

AMD will offer to consumer models based on the Vega architecture: the Radeon RX Vega 64 and the Radeon RX Vega 56.

As there's a lot of new technology behind the RX Vega graphics cards, which we hope to test very shortly, AMD feels it necessary to explain the tech behind them, which makes them so desirable and future-proofed for VR.

How does it compare to Nvidia's graphics cards? Since years, AMD is believed to be devoting plenty its time and efforts on their most awaited Radeon Vega graphics processing unit card. The high-end Radeon RX Vega 64 Liquid Cooled Edition is available in a package with two games and other features for $700, while the air-cooled Radeon RX Vega 64 is available in a package for $600 or standalone for $500. All the graphics cards are having numbers after their name because that is the number of card's Compute Units.

According to a Doom benchmark ran by AMD, the RX Vega 64 can pump out framerates than are roughly 10 percent better than what you'd get from an Nvidia GTX 1080. Vega 10 is having around 12.5 billion transistors and is manufactured using a 14nm FinFET LPP process.

The Vega gaming GPU lineup has been finally released by AMD this Sunday.

Vega will come in a number of different variants including the vega 64 and 56 which will be released later this month.

In terms of performance, AMD says the RX Vega 64 comes in at around 12.7 TFLOPS of power in its air-cooled version, and 13.7 TFLOPS if liquid cooled. It uses 16GB of High-Bandwidth Cache with HBM2 ECC memory.

In brief, AMD unveiled the details of a new "x86" microprocessor called the "Ryzen Threadripper", with 8, 12 or 16 "CPU cores" per chip, created to be its highest-performing desktop microprocessor. The Radeon Pro SSG has the same performance specifications as the Radeon Pro WX 9100 and has the same I/O cluster with six mini-DisplayPorts.

There will be 4,096 stream processors, 64 compute units along with an 8 GB advanced HBM2 memory with 484 Gbps of bandwidth in the Radeon RX Vega 64. The company will also be selling special RX Vega "packs", some of which include discounts for a Freesync monitor and its own Ryzen CPUs if gamers are willing to pay extra for the RX Vega 64 upfront.

There's also an Aqua Pack that features the Radeon RX Vega 64 Liquid Cooled Edition for a price of $699, but this will hand you two games, a discounted monitor as well as CPU and motherboard options. Do you think that the RX Vega 64 by itself works for $499, even with the increased power draw?

AMD appears to be betting on this scenario as the company made the difference between its FreeSync and nVidia's G-Sync experiences a focal point during recent RX Vega demos.
