AMD has announced the first product based on its Vega graphics processing unit (GPU) architecture: Radeon Vega Frontier Edition. Through its high bandwidth cache controller, the cornerstone of the advanced GPU memory architecture - HBM2 - Radeon Vega Frontier Edition expands the capacity of traditional GPU memory to 256TB.
The Radeon Vega Frontier Edition's memory engine allows professionals to achieve photorealistic detail in computer-generated imagery. The Radeon Vega Frontier Edition GPU offers multi-GPU scaling, with 91% faster rendering using two Radeon Vega Frontier Edition GPUs.
With the Radeon Pro Settings user interface, users can switch between Radeon Pro Mode and Gaming Mode to alternate between development on animation applications like Autodesk Maya and performance optimizations with free, open source tools available through AMD's GPUOpen initiative.
