The AMD Vega Live Preview That Never Happened, New Details
It was very disappointing that the AMD Vega live preview never happened. When the Vega site displayed a countdown we all thought that there would be an AMD Vega live preview but that never happened and instead we got some videos and an updated site.
Despite this disappointment, there are some new updates that we have learned about the AMD Vega GPU and we also have an image to share with all of you. We can see in the image that the GPU is pretty large and it is bigger than what we are used to. One can only imagine what kind of performance this monster will be capable of.
AMD has also pointed out some new improvements that have been introduced in Vega that are a big upgrade as compared to previous architectures. It is possible that with Vega coming out AMD could race against Nvidia. While some would say that Vega is too late to the race I would disagree. Here are some key points about AMD Vega.
The key features that we did not get to see at the AMD Vega live preview that never happened are as follows:
- The world’s most advanced GPU memory architecture
- Next-generation geometry pipeline
- Next-generation compute engine
- Advanced pixel engine
At CES 2017 a single Vega GPU was able to run Doom at 4K resolution at 75 FPS. This is some next level performance to say the very least and something that has blown me away. I hope that the final product is even more impressive.
What do you think about the AMD Vega live preview never taking place? Do you think that with the AMD Ryzen and Vega combination being so good it could be a good year to build an all AMD PC? Let us know what you think about this topic.
