AMD Vega architecture is the new hype these days and everyone seems interested in finding out what it has to offer. Although we have seen two demos so far concerning AMD Vega we still know very little about the GPUs that will feature this new architecture. AMD is claiming to offer mind-boggling performance and if the claims are true then it is more than likely that Vega powered GPUs will be able to beat the much-anticipated 1080Ti and even the Titan XP.
AMD Vega Architecture Explained
The average gamer is not interested in Voodoo magic and linguistic trickery. Gamers just want to know to the point and what stuff is. Let me explain the key features of the AMD Vega architecture.
AMD Vega Architecture: High-Bandwidth-Cache
AMD Vega GPUs will come with at least 8GB HBM2 memory, at least that is what we know as of right now. What high-bandwidth cache means it that if the GPU has 4 GB of VRAM it will perform like an 8 GB GPU would perform and if the GPU has 8 GB VRAM it will perform like a 16 GB GPU and so on. You get the idea. That is what high-bandwidth-cache system means in simple terms.
AMD Vega Architecture: New Geometry Pipeline
This will allow AMD GPUs to focus on rendering objects on the screen that will actually be visible instead of rendering things that the gamer will not be looking at or will be hidden from sight. This will improve GPU performance and keep Vega GPUs under the 300w mark as well.
We know that AMD already has the upper hand when it comes to gaming with the DirectX 12 API and some new advancement are being made that will give AMD an edge when running games with DX12.
Keeping all these things in mind it is possible that AMD Vega will be able to beat the GTX 1080Ti as well as the Titan XP. AMD is also releasing the Ryzen chip that will compete with Intel CPUs. All things considered, we can assume that 2017 will be a good year for AMD and AMD fans.
