In the gaming industry and graphics cards, 2016 is the year chosen by the two industry giants to release its next – generation architectures with manufacturing in14nm FinFET. Now is the time for AMD, the dance partner of Nvidia.
The June 1 starts the story for the new AMD graphics, which premiered Polaris line work, the technological equivalent of Pascal Nvidia. It will be at Computex know where the first AMD graphics cards for the coming years. Before that day comes, we review with you what is already known about what future graphics cards Polaris 10 and 11, which likely will lead to new AMD R9 and R7.
A by virtual reality for “everyone”
AMD is expected to debut its graphic Polaris with a range of graphics cards will not seek to settle in the high end but carry the possibility of using virtual reality to more users. It is the lure that have most repeated from the company to attract the attention of consumers.
So I confessed a few weeks ago company executives, who see in this differentiation competitive advantage over the first Nvidia graphics. Although perhaps not expected at that time the competitive prices that has presented solutions GTX 1080 and especially the GTX 1070. We will have to see the starting price of the new AMD R9 because he has taught Nvidia, even competing in different ranges, is very interesting value.
The two new AMD graphics as they will be framed in the entry segments and a half, so for now we must wait to see what it would be equivalent to the current generation Fury Polaris.
The choice for the graphic memory
One of the main questions about future AMD graphics with Polaris is the type of memory they will use. Rumors have alternated continuity memory HBM1 over to GDDR5. And finally a few days to come true, the leaks give us a clue about the choice: GDDR5 memory and GDDR5X.
With this election, the new Polaris 10 and 11 would at the same time the latest models of Nvidia, with 8 GB maximum per graphics card. According to the roadmap HBM2 the use of memory will be, as in the case of Nvidia, reserved for a superior range that will be released in 2017 and in the case of AMD come from the hand of the Vega evolution.
Two new graphics Radeon to start: No high-end
On June 1, two new graphics for input ranges (Polaris 11) and a half (Polaris 10) estrangement. The first of these would be integrated into basic ultrabooks and laptops aspiring to run virtual reality, while Polaris 10 shall be reserved as graphics for gaming desktops and notebooks.
The most powerful graphics card by AMD see next week will be the Polaris 10 which could lead to R9 400 series with 32 CU and a total of 2048 Cores. The base clock frequency of 1343 MHz would be.
The maximum power of this future plot would be contained in the 5.5 TFLOPS, with a maximum memory of 8 GB GDDR5X bandwidth of 224 GB / s and 256 – bit interface. So far this future graph cannot be impressed by their performance data or bandwidth, among others. The key, as in the case of Nvidia consumption.
Almost match the specifications of the previous generation graphics presumed for this new AMD Polaris only need half the energy. The TDP is 150 W, enabling configuration of a single 8 – pin connection for power.
Also as reference consumption (TDP of only 50 W at no extra power connector) we would meet next week with 400 of the R7 equivalent with Polaris. This version would reach a power of 2.5 TFLOPS through 896 Cores and with 4GB of memory and a bus GDRR5 128 bits.
