Radeon Vega Frontier Edition Benchmarking and Interview with AMD

Radeon Vega Frontier Edition Benchmarking and Interview with AMD”

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.

300W TDP (Air-Cooled) 375W TDP (Liquid-Cooled).

It did, though, add the following caveat: "Radeon Vega Frontier Edition is certainly faster in the tests we witnessed, but to be fair, it's comparing an ostensibly consumer-focused Titan Xp card to the pro-level Frontier Edition".

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

The AMD Radeon Vega Frontier Edition comes in two varieties: air cooled or liquid cooled. PCWorld notes that the Radeon Vega Frontier Edition had its blue anodized heat shroud made in the United States, as well as the Radeon logo, and the absolutely handsome and I-must-have-it-now glowing yellow "R" also #MadeinAmerica.

AMD hooked up the Radeon Vega Frontier to an 8K display from Dell, and a second 1080p display, oh and a HTC Vive headset. The next step involved exporting the vehicle into AMD's ProRender plug-in, shifting it over to Unreal Engine 4 so that it could be looked at with the HTC Vive.

As PCWorld reported, there wasn't any noticeable performance difference between the AMD Radeon Vega Frontier Edition and the NVIDIA Titan XP. "The numbers echo what we already knew about the Frontier Edition, but this time we could see the performance demonstrations live". It can be used to cache external memory and storage devices, giving the Vega Frontier Edition the ability to access up to 256TB (yes, TB) of virtual memory. For the enterprise grade drivers with an NVIDIA product you'd be looking to the Quadro P5000 which costs at least $2000, or the P6000 which costs closer to $6000.

AMD's Radeon Vega Frontier Edition will be released today and a couple of days ago, AMD showcased this brand new GPU in a very closed environment at its test lab. It's a muscular variant of Vega intended for professionals.

"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 marketi, before deploying it out to massive servers equipped with Radeon Instinct accelerators", claimed AMD.

Rather than for gamers, the graphics card will be more aimed at games developers "by providing a single GPU that is optimised for every stage of a game developer's workflow, including everything from asset production to play-testing and performance optimisation".
