Radeon Technologies Group Celebrates Its First Birthday
How did time fly by? It has already been a year since AMD announced that they were going to be forming the Radeon Technologies Group, a group that would be focusing on mustering up GPU market share. Radeon Technologies Group has been pretty successful if you ask me. Three new GPUs were launched this year. The 1440p targetted RX 480, the mainstream RX 470 and the RX 460 for MOBA players.
According to Radeon Technologies Group boss Raja Koduri:
We managed to bring the focus back to graphics and turned around the erosion that happened over the last few years.
The Xbox One S and the PS4 Pro both are powered by GPUs from Radeon Technologies Group and we might see the upcoming Microsoft Project Scorpio also being powered by one of these GPUs as well.
We are back to a positive trajectory, which was a tremendous effort from the entire team. We have a lot more to do. We have accomplished this turnaround when our competition didn’t make it easy. They have been executing exceedingly well.
Radeon Technologies Group aimed at making entry into PC gaming a bit easier and cost friendly and that is what they have done so far. They have not only done that but they have also made VR accessible to the masses with the RX 480 being VR ready and priced at the $200 point. The GPUs introduced by the company have been great value for money and the company has not targeted gamers only.
Radeon Pro SSG was also released for designers and content creators that need nothing but all that horsepower. The Radeon Pro SSG delivers all that power but costs less. With the help of these GPUs, you no longer need to spend $5,000 on a GPU. It has been brought way down to the $1,000 mark.
Radeon Technologies Group has been doing some great work so far and we are looking forward to what more the company has to offer in terms of high-end Vega 10.
