AMD Dracarys; $10,000 GPU With 1TB RAM, Vega 10
Yes, you read that right the upcoming $10,000 GPU is called the AMD Dracarys, which means Dragon Fire in the Valerian’s tongue as seen in the HBO series The Game of Thrones. AMD is making this high-end GPU for 2017 and reports claim that we will be able to see the AMD Dracarys GPU at the Supercomputing 2016 event coming up next month.
The GPU is of course not for consumers and will be used in supercomputers for deep learning applications. It seems that AMD was not kidding when they said they would be getting back in the game. The company means business here.
The AMD Dracarys will feature more than 1TB of graphics memory much like the high-end professional Radeon Pro SSG but it will take things to the next level. AMD Dracarys will be better integrated and will be closer to the metal, so to speak.
We are looking forward to the showcasing of the GPU and we will be filling you in regarding what the GPU has to offer and how it works. This could be another step in the right direction for AMD. So far Lisa Su has done a great job leading the company out of what it previously was and it seems that there is more to come.
What do you think about this AMD Dracarys GPU monster?
