  • Vega 20 coming 2018 7nm TSMC 32GB HBM2 1TB/s bandwidth

    Hot off the rumour press, Vega 20 shaping up to be a monster GPU. Could be first GPU to push 4K in all latest titles at 60 fps constant at maximum settings.

    Interesting that they are ditching GloFo for TSMC.

      original source is here.

      fab issues seem like the real reason they are having issues with supply so switching it up makes sense. now idk if they come from the foundry side or the way they are putting it all together on the substrate or what but still.

      the real shocker from this rumour to me is that they are going to be using hbm on the mid range tier cards too and not keeping the cheaper fix of gddr5x like nvidia have. i wonder if they have a deal for better prices from higher volume orders?

        Think that's probably correct, ordering more of something usually drives down the cost. Another thought is the drivers, if they have lots of cards on different memory techs, might hinder the performance. Drivers will be geared towards aggressive memory latencies with HBM2 available to them. Believe that's one of the problems with HBM so far, software needs tweaking for tighter latency compared to GDDR standard. It's bit like windows, when SSD's became available, windows was far from optimised for faster access times, but MS rectified it with optimisations.
