AMD has recently unleashed the first product based on its highly anticipated “Vega” graphics processing unit (GPU) architecture: Radeon Vega Frontier Edition. Radeon Vega Frontier Edition is the world’s first graphics card designed to empower the next generation of data scientists, game designers and visualization professionals, with up to 172 percent faster rendering performance than the comparable competitor card.
Through its disruptive High Bandwidth Cache Controller, the cornerstone of the world’s most advanced GPU memory architecture, HBM2, Radeon Vega Frontier Edition expands the capacity of traditional GPU memory to 256TB, allowing users to tackle massive datasets with ease, and scored up to 33% faster than the competition in the Deep Bench benchmark that measures the performance of basic operations involved in training deep neural networks.
“We’re dedicating Radeon Vega Frontier Edition to all the visionaries and trailblazers who embrace new technologies to propel their industries forward to help solve mankind’s greatest problems,” said Ogi Brkic, senior director and general manager, Radeon Pro business, Radeon Technologies Group, AMD.
“AMD did a stunning job on the industrial design of the Radeon Vega Frontier Edition. The blue-anodized brushed aluminum shroud and lit Radeon inlays are downright elegant,” said Kelt Reeves, president of Falcon Northwest. “The high-airflow I/O bracket and vented anodized back plate are a beautifully executed example of how form can follow function and still make for a beautiful product.”
Together with AMD’s open-source, fully scalable ROCm software platform, Radeon Vega Frontier Edition paves the way for pioneers to continue pushing boundaries in fields like artificial intelligence (AI). Developers can now use the power of the “Vega” architecture for machine learning algorithm development on the Radeon Vega Frontier Edition Faster than with any other GPU on the market, before deploying it out to massive servers equipped with Radeon Instinct accelerators.This powerful new solution also delivers a disruptive performance per dollar equation,solidifying AMD’s leadership in compute total cost of ownership (TCO).
Radeon Vega Frontier Edition delivers the horsepower required for design and manufacturing firms to drive increasingly large and complex models and to deployreal-time visualization and physically-based rendering.
The Radeon Vega Frontier Edition’s revolutionary memory engine also allows professionals to achieve photorealistic detail in computer-generated imagery. A visualization powerhouse, the Radeon Vega Frontier Edition GPU offers exceptional multi-GPU scaling.
