It seems that upcoming AMD Radeon GPUs will be based on the lessons learned through Zen architecture as AMD has confirmed that it has pulled some of the members of Zen micro-architecture team to its Radeon Graphics department to give its upcoming GPUs a boost in power and performance.
This is according to Suzanne Plummer, CVP of the Radeon Technologies Group. According to Plummer, AMD is using the process that went into the success of Ryzen CPUs to give its upcoming AMD Radeon GPUs a boost in performance.
Aside from using the same processes, the Radeon Group has also pulled some people from Zen micro-architecture team to work on its upcoming AMD Radeon GPUs
A lot of what we did in Zen was trying to push well beyond what we thought we could do and I think that is something we’re trying to do in the graphics space as well to make a bigger leap forward.
We’ve pulled in some of the expertise from the microprocessor cores team into the graphics team, kinda helping with our methodology, and improving our frequency and our performance and power. And just taking the best that we have already developed in-house and trying to make sure that we’re using the same improvements across the company.
It seems that AMD is going all in with the success of Ryzen CPUs to take on Nvidia in the GPU market as Nvidia is currently the leading GPU manufacturer.
In related news, AMD has confirmed that it is already working on Zen 5 Micro-Architecture. According to lead Zen architect Mike Clark, he is working on Zen 5 mico-architecture.
Do you think upcoming AMD Radeon GPUs will benefit from the success of Ryzen in terms of performance? Let us know in the comments.
