The next generation of graphics cards from AMD camp “Vega” will focus on the high-end market segment, but for their premiere we will have to wait for October.

While we are still waiting for the release of AMD’s next-Generation Polaris graphics cards, red team today announced that they are working on the successors of Polaris. Raja Koduri, chairman of the Radeon Technologies Group recently boasted that engineers have already reached the so-called milestone to deliver the next generation of Vega graphics cards.

What should we expect from AMD Vega GPU? Unlike the Polaris which will focus the mid-segment market, Vega will focus on top segment. AMD Vega GPUs will be manufactured 14nm process node fourth-generation of GCN (Graphics Core Next) architecture. The most impressive thing is that these GPUs will be equipped with the 2nd generation of High-bandwidth memory (HBM2).

In addition, we should expect an additional increase in performance per watts – the Polaris is expected to bring 280% increase in energy efficiency (more than originally planned), while Vega will use to about 80% relative to the Polaris and about 500% compared to GPUs manufactured @28 nm (predecessors).

It was reported after the NVIDIA launched its GTX 1000 series GPUs that AMD is ramping up development of Vega for an early launch in October, instead of the officially confirmed Q1 2017 release window.
