AMD Vega and Navi Roadmap; Radeon Pro S9 Nano And Vega 11
Today, we are going to talk about the upcoming architectures that we are going to see from AMD in the years to come. We have AMD Vega 10 as well as Vega 11.
Radeon Pro S9 Nano
AMD has decided to rebrand the R9 Nano as the Radeon Pro S9 Nano and use it in servers. Both the R9 Nano as well as the Radeon Pro S9 Nano should have similar specifications but there are no details about this as of right now. This GPU will be coming out in a few weeks time though.
AMD Vega 11
When it come to the professional market, the Polaris series will be replaced by AMD Vega 11, but this does not mean that there will be no Polaris cards coming out. It just means that AMD Vega 11 GPUs will be much faster and efficient for content creators and professional that are looking for the best value for money.
AMD Vega vs Nvidia Pascal
I am pretty sure you all want to know how AMD Vega will hold up against the Nvidia Pascal architecture. Well, we cannot be certain of that until and unless we have real world tests. But, here is what to expect. Vega 10 has two stacks of HBM2 memory which means that it will have a 16GB configuration. It is still not clear if this will be offered in the RX series as well.
Dual Vega 10 will get 4 stacks of HBM2, as a result, this will double bandwidth from 512 GB/s to 1 TB/s. Vega 10 has 750 GFLOPs of dual-precision computing power hence we can say that it will be competing against Pascal.
The RX series have been pretty successful due to Polaris 10. We will have to wait and see if this can be said for AMD Vega as well. We can not be certain about performance until the architecture is released and we have in-game tests as well as benchmarks. You can also check out the AMD Vega and Navi roadmap.
