Upcoming Nvidia GTX 1080 pictured, may not use HBM2

Upcoming Nvidia GTX 1080 pictured, may not use HBM2 It’s no secret that AMD and Nvidia are planning to launch new GPUs in the next few months, but there are still questions about configurations and technology.Initially, we expected these new cards to use the HBM2 memory standard, but the persistent rumor has been that AMD’s upcoming Polaris would be GDDR5 based.

Micron confirms GDDR5X now in mass production

Micron confirms GDDR5X now in mass production This announcement might seem a bit anticlimactic now that Nvidia has already stated that the GeForce GTX 1080 will use GDDR5X RAM, but Micron has announced that GDDR5X is now in mainstream production, months ahead of its originally expected schedule.One interesting thing about the GTX 1080 is that the RAM it uses is at the lower-end of the memory Micron said it could ship.

AMD announces Radeon Pro SSG: A GPU with 1TB of SSD storage attached

AMD announces Radeon Pro SSG: A GPU with 1TB of SSD storage attached Going forward, the FirePro lineup is being retired altogether in favor of new, Radeon Pro branding.The interesting card, however, is the Radeon Pro SSG, a new Radeon Pro GPU with integrated M.

SK Hynix adds HBM2 to its product stack, plans Q3 availability A recent update from SK Hynix makes it clear that HBM2 is tiptoeing towards launch, with availability expected as soon as Q3 of this year.According to its catalog, SK Hynix will offer a 4GB stack of HBM2 at both 1.

Intel launches Stratix 10: Altera FPGA combined with ARM CPU, 14nm manufacturing

Intel launches Stratix 10: Altera FPGA combined with ARM CPU, 14nm manufacturing When Intel bought Altera last year, there was speculation on how we’d see future FPGA products fit within Intel’s existing product lines.The new Stratix 10 family does contain a microprocessor — but it’s an ARM-based design, not an Intel chip.

New PC industry consortium to develop next-gen memory interconnect

New PC industry consortium to develop next-gen memory interconnect The entire computing industry has a memory problem, and a new consortium of industry partners, dubbed Gen-Z, hopes to solve it.What’s needed is a new memory interface that can tie these various components together, and that’s where Gen-Z comes in.

AMD reveals new Radeon GPU architecture, codenamed Vega

AMD reveals new Radeon GPU architecture, codenamed Vega These entry-level to midrange cards would be followed by a full high-end refresh based on a new GPU design, codenamed Vega.One of the most common misconceptions about GPU RAM allocation and the popular freeware utility GPU-Z is that GPU-Z is capable of telling you how much RAM the GPU is actually using.

AMD's RX Vega Won't Launch Until Later This Year

AMD's RX Vega Won't Launch Until Later This Year While the company demoed and discussed its Vega Frontier Edition this week at its financial analyst day, the company will not be launching a consumer Vega GPU at Computex or in June.It’s not like you can run down to the corner store to get HBM2.

AMD Clarifies Vega and Server Rollouts, Talks Zen Follow-Ups

AMD Clarifies Vega and Server Rollouts, Talks Zen Follow-Ups Let’s break it down: During AMD’s financial analyst day, it unveiled a roadmap for Zen that showed 14nm/14nm+, followed by a Zen 2 and Zen 3.This implies we’ll see a refreshed Zen point-update at some point on a second-generation 14nm process.

Samsung Wants to Lead the Foundry Business to 4nm and Beyond

Samsung Wants to Lead the Foundry Business to 4nm and Beyond A few weeks back, we covered foundry plans over the next few years for TSMC, Samsung, GlobalFoundries, and Intel.The company is planning to launch a variety of new process capabilities, including new technology nodes, the introduction of Extreme Ultraviolet Lithography (EUV), and its own fully depleted SOI (FDSOI) technology.

Early AMD Radeon Vega Frontier Edition Benchmarks Surface

Early AMD Radeon Vega Frontier Edition Benchmarks Surface Second, previous comments from AMD have implied that Vega Frontier Edition is running at a lower clock than the consumer variants will.This is unlikely to have a huge impact on the final product, but if Vega FE runs at 1.

Tantalizing Rumors Leak Ahead of AMD's Vega Launch

Tantalizing Rumors Leak Ahead of AMD's Vega Launch We don’t know the clock on the consumer memory (Vega Frontier Edition uses 1890MHz), but there are two significant differences between Vega FE and the consumer RX Vega.First, if THG is right, all of the Vega consumer cards are limited to 8GB of RAM.

Custom AMD Vega Boards Reportedly Delayed By Technical Issues

Custom AMD Vega Boards Reportedly Delayed By Technical Issues When Nvidia or AMD launch a new GPU, there’s a typical rollout pattern.These custom boards are generally clocked higher, have better, quieter coolers, or may be built on a custom smaller PCB.
