AMD updates Radeon Pro drivers for Vega GPUs with 8K display support

Talking about the GPUs, the important structure of the forthcoming Vega GPUs are expected to be featured with AMD's Next Compute Engine architecture with estimated 4096 stream processors.

As the performance of the graphics cards are on a par with Nvidia's 10-series, rather than blowing them out of the water as many had hoped, the company accompanied the launch with a renewed push for monitor manufacturers to produce more FreeSync displays.

In the wake of the launch of the Radeon RX Vega experience, and more, this weekend at SIGGRAPH 2017, AMD has released a plethora of tech explainer videos, in addition to the launch videos for the various products you might expect.

The standalone Radeon RX Vega 56, which has 56 compute units, will be released on August 14th for $399. All the graphics cards are having numbers after their name because that is the number of card's Compute Units.

Images of the AMD Radeon RX Vega leaked out just a few days ago and sure enough the rumors were true. Vega 10 is having around 12.5 billion transistors and is manufactured using a 14nm FinFET LPP process. Also484GB/s of memory bandwidth, and a TDP of 295W. Additionally, according to the internal sources, the novel Vega GPUs will apparently run at the base speed of 1500 MHz (may increase). It boasts of the same bandwidth of 484 GBps and 8 GB of HBM2 memory. The given card is capable of 12.66 TFLOPs of computing performance. This should come as a welcome relief for those who were uneasy after the performance of Vega Frontier Edition released in June underperformed GTX 1080. The top of the line Radeon RX Vega Liquid Edition can be had only as a bundle called, the Radeon Aqua Pack which will supposedly retail for US$699.

AMD also announced its "Radeon RX Vega", a computer graphics card with a graphics processing unit, or "GPU", which it claimed is "the most advanced consumer graphics card in the world". It will deliver the 1,156MHz base clock and 1,471 boost clock.

The Radeon RX Vega 64 will be available in both air- and water-cooled models. Next up is the Radeon RX Vega 64, which is bereft of liquid cooling but features the same number of CUs and ROPs as the Liquid Cooled Edition.

The Radeon Pro WX 9100 workstation graphics card is created to excel in the most demanding media and entertainment, and design and manufacturing workloads. "With the new Radeon Pro WX 9100 and Radeon Pro SSG, we're breaking new ground and we can't wait to see how you unleash this power", said Ogi Brkic, general manager, professional graphics, Radeon Technologies Group, AMD.
