First, Smallest AMD Polaris GPU Coming in Two Months Time!
Even though AMD unveiled their new GPU, they did not share when they will be launching the first processors in the market. However, we have sufficient reports to believe that the first and the smallest, 14nm Polaris is going to come out in two months’ time – this is pretty sooner than expected, though.
The source of this news is an insider that our pals at PCPer have been able to siphon the details out of. Previously it was speculated that we will get the first AMD Polaris GPU somewhere in the middle on 2016.
Polaris, which is going to power the future Radeon products stands apart from the rest because of the newly adopted FinFET process technology due to which they are promising to “deliver a remarkable generational jump in power efficiency.”
Whether it is power efficiency or features, AMD is boasting that this is going to be their best yet. Some of the features that are going to define the new architecture are rimitive Discard Accelerator, Hardware Scheduler, Instruction Pre-Fetch, Improved Shader Efficiency and Memory Compression.
In parallel news for gamers, it has also been rumored that AMD and Microsoft have allegedly partnered to bring to the market a newer, and more powerful version of the Xbox One gaming console powered by Polaris architecture.
