AMD to uncover off Vega and Navi GPU tech on 16 May


GRAPHICS OUTFIT AMD will spill more sum about a long-awaited Vega GPU pattern on 16 May.

That’s according to WCCFTech, that sites sources during a association who explain that a association is formulation an eventuality – not a product launch – in that some-more sum about Vega and Navi GPUs, along with Zen+ CPU cores, will be disclosed.

The eventuality will be presented by CEO Lisa Su, alongside arch record officer Mark Papermaster, Radeon Technologies Group arch designer Raja Koduri, and Jim Anderson, ubiquitous manager of a Computing and Graphics Business Group during AMD.

Further information about Navi is approaching to be presented by Koduri, who AMD lured behind from Apple in 2013, after he had left in 2009. Koduri has a high repute and 20 years of knowledge in all from program to GPU design, and Navi will be a initial GPU Koduri will be wholly obliged for building from source to production given his lapse to AMD.

It will also be built on GlobalFoundries 7nm FinFET process, and is roadmapped for 2018 availability, nonetheless it will (of course) be rarely contingent on GlobalFoundries’ possess technical growth – 2019 competence be a some-more picturesque time-frame given a slippage of both Polaris and Vega.

AMD has teased out tantalising sum about Vega over a past 6 months or so, nonetheless in Apr it indicated that graphics cards formed on Vega would be entrance in a stream quarter to a finish of June.


AMD’s approaching roadmap for Polaris and Vega slipped by around 6 months final year. Polaris had been approaching around Mar or April, with Vega out in a fourth quarter.

However, Polaris usually seemed during a finish of Jun in a Radeon RX 460, 470 and 480 array of AMD graphics cards, while sum have usually been fitfully expelled on Vega. It is now approaching to be expelled in a stream quarter. Part of a reason for a delays on Vega has been attributed to delays in volume accessibility of HBM2 memory, that Vega will utilize over GDDR5.

Vega-based inclination are still approaching to be launched and accessible before a finish of June, during slightest according to a trickle during a finish of April.

The Zen+ details, meanwhile, are unchanging with AMD CEO Lisa Su’s plan that a association should work on mixed generations of CPUs roadmapped over a three-to-five year period. µ
