AMD has officially launched Radeon Pro Duo, the strongest-ever graphics card with compute performance of 16TFLOPS and it will start selling in Q2 for $1499. Actually, the company has something else to show during the Capsaicin live webcast. They’ve just unveiled their GPU architecture roadmap for the coming three years. Following the Polaris is Vega with HBM 2 and you can expect Navi with next-gen memory in 2018.
As you can see above, the performance per watt increases significantly as the architecture is updated. Earlier this year AMD mentioned their next-gen GPU would pack HBM 2 memory, and it seems they’re referring to Vega. Unfortunately we’ll have to wait till 2017 for Vega – that is to say, the high-end graphics card won’t arrive until the end of 2016 or early 2017.
Vega is not the termination (of course) – in 2018 we’re seeing Navi with enhanced scalability and a mysterious kind of new memory.
