AMD will show off Radeon RX Vega on May 31 at Computex

AMD Radeon Vega Frontier goes after NVIDIA in machine learning

The AMD Radeon Vega Frontier Edition will be available to purchase from "late June".

In various product shots you can see 2x 8-pin power connectors. "Infinity Fabric is the secret sauce within each of our products that allows us to bring together our leadership x86 CPUs and graphics in an efficient way to deliver breakthrough products to meet the needs of the most demanding workloads". These specifications leave the RX 560 with a peak compute performance of up to 2.6 TFLOPs and a memory bandwidth of 112GB/s.

During the AMA, Koduri said: "We'll be showing Radeon RX Vega off at Computex, but it won't be on store shelves that week".

In addition to adopting advanced transistor nodes, AMD will use a combination of on-chip integration, software, and system design engineering innovations to continue to create smarter, more efficient architecture designs to achieve improved performance and energy efficiency into the future. For comparison, the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti delivers 11.4 TFLOPs of compute performance and packs in 11GB of GDDR5X memory.

During the event AMD also announced that it will be releasing a 16 core professional CPU too. this added to AMD's silence about its gaming vega cards at the event indicates that they are now targeting the professional market rather than gamers, so it maybe a long wait for vega gaming graphics cards. Vega FE Gold features a sealed liquid cooler, similar the one used on the Fury X. It's not yet known if performance between the two cards will differ (at the very least, the Gold version will sustain its boost speeds for longer due to better cooling), but both will certainly suck down power.

AMD set reference clocks at 1175MHz for GPU base, 1275MHz for GPU Boost while memory is set to work at 7000MHz. Following Navi is "Next Gen", which is based on a 7nm+ process.
