AMD Radeon Pro Vega: AMD’s most powerful graphics core

Apple announced the new iMac Pro, a high-performance professional driven computer that will be equipped with AMD Radeon Pro Vega graphics solution, the new and expected generation of AMD.

When we talk about AMD Radeon Pro Vega, we are referring to what we also know as Vega 10, a graphic core that becomes the most powerful that has ever manufactured the signature of Sunnyvale and as we mentioned in previous information will have two basic configurations.

The first is what we can consider as the full version, i.e. the one that keeps the 64 computing units that make up that graphic nucleus activated. This translates to the following specifications:

  • 4,096 shaders.
  • 256 texture units.
  • 64 raster units.
  • 048-bit bus with HBM2 memory (up to 16 GB).

The second version is a trimmed variant that will have 56 computer units activated. These will be your specifications:

  • 3,584 shaders.
  • 224 units of texture.
  • 64 raster units.
  • 048-bit bus with HBM2 memory (up to 16 GB).

At the performance level, AMD Radeon Pro Vega will introduce major improvements and breakthroughs that will have a major impact on overall performance. This means that we should not only be left with the raw numbers (shaders and others).

Among the most important novelties that will introduce, this new architecture emphasizes the cache of high bandwidth attached to the new subsystem of memory; the new computing engine and geometry and optimizations in the “Pixel Engine”.

It will be necessary to wait for the first tests of performance in real environments to see to what extent they take advantage of all these advances, although there is no doubt that Vega 10 is a very promising graphic nucleus.
