AMD RX Vega 56 Nano now official

AMD RX Vega 56 Nano now official

David claims that AMD is making great progress on a new Navi 7nm generation that to Fudzilla's knowledge should launch at some point in 2019.

Those who missed the RX Vega 56-related news so far should also know that this video card features 3584 stream processing units, DirectX 12 support, a 2048-bit interface, PCI-E 3.0 and HDMI/DisplayPort x3 support.

AMD is still keeping mum about it all for the time being, leaving us in the dark as to what the clock speed of either of the two 2nd generation Threadripper processors might be.

Threadripper 2 will have a maximum TDP of 250W, and will be pin-compatible with the first-generation variant, meaning you'll be able to slot in Threadripper 2 in an existing X399 motherboard.

"We made a bet on 7nm", Lisa Su says at the AMD Computex event. The card comes bearing the fifth-gen GCN microarchitecture, but it will bring numerous benefits borne of the 7nm process.

7nm will be the most advanced process node this year.

The good news is that 2020 Next Gen 7nm+ is most likely a high end part and that AMD may actually make a gaming GPU out of it.

Sampling of Zen 2-based EPYC processors remains on track for the second half of this year. This approach is similar to Nvidia's NVLink implementation, so it purportedly reduces latency and boosts throughput between graphics cards.

AMD delved into its 2nd generation Ryzen processors, shrinking the die from 14nm to 12nm. "Those are tied together with AMD's Infinity fabric, that allows those four die to act like one monster processor working altogether", AMD senior vice president and general manager of computing and graphics Jim Anderson said on Wednesday.

AMD has followed up its 32-core Threadripper reveal with an unveiling of an upcoming Radeon Instinct Vega GPU, designed for servers and workstations, rather than gaming rigs.

AMD demoed the GPU running a Cinema4D rendering workload with the company's open-source Radeon Pro Render ray tracing solution.
