AMD announces Vega Frontier Edition prices

Kayla Schwartz | 28 June, 2017, 14:58

As well as its uses in game development, this GPU has alot of prospects in machine learning applications when used in conjunction with AMD's open-source, fully scalable ROCm software platform. 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 easily, and scored up to 33 percent faster than the competition in the DeepBench benchmark that measures the performance of basic operations involved in training deep neural networks.

Based on AMD's new Vega GPU, the Radeon Vega Frontier Edition packs 64 Compute Units (CUs) for 4096 Stream Processors and 16GB of HBM2 memory for 480GB/s of memory bandwidth.

Radeon Vega Frontier Edition delivers the horsepower required for design and manufacturing firms to drive increasingly large and complex models and to deploy real-time visualization and physically-based rendering. This includes asset production, playtesting and performance optimization.

In the limited testing that it was able to witness, the Radeon Vega Frontier Edition was able to outgun the Titan Xp by roughly 50 percent in SolidWorks, while it had a 28 percent advantage in Catia. The water-cooled edition is expected to launch in Q3 for $1499. The first one will feature an air cooler while the second one comes with a water cooler with single radiator, similar to the Fury X. According to the latest rumors, the air-cooled Frontier Edition card will cost $999 United States excluding taxes, while the liquid cooled version is to feature a whopping $1499 USA price tag, excluding taxes as well.

Europe's once positive world view of US slips under Trump
The latest survey results showed that more positive views of the USA were expressed by Canadians on the political right. Meanwhile, 64 percent expressed confidence in former President Barack Obama's presidency on the same parameters.

Nvidia Quadro graphics cards, though, typically cost even more.

The AMD Radeon Vega Frontier Edition comes in two varieties: air cooled or liquid cooled.

As for the Radeon RX Vega, we'll have to wait for wait until late July to get more details on that gamer-centric graphics card.

After months of leaks and rumours the first Vega core AMD GPUs have finally hit the shelves.
