Another paper launch at SIGGRAPH 2017?

The launch of AMD’s RX Vega series graphics cards is one of the most anticipated product launches in the entire 2017 but apparently it’s taking AMD ages to let the cat out of the bag. According to latest information it’s supposed to take place in late September. In other words, we won’t see a hard launch of RX Vega during the Siggraph 2017 event.


Performance improvements for FFXIV and Tekken 7

Following the launch of AMD’s ReLive 17.6.1 drivers there is already a new update available. These drivers are supposed to help increase the performance and efficiency of AMD cards and on top of that AMD has also fixed some issues related to Tekken 7 and FFXIV.



Unfinished feature

Gamers Nexus had the chance to come up with a review on the AMD Radeon Pro Vega Frontier Edition graphics card. In a rather lengthy video they described the experience with the two different modes the card offers. It looks like that the "Pro Mode" and "Gaming Mode" are identical in combination with the current drivers. The only thing that differs concerns a few options in the AMD's Radeon Settings.


According to Geekbench database

Although the acclaimed launch date will be somewhen during the upcoming months news leaks related to Threadripper are making it through on almost a daily basis. This time Tweaktown jumped the gun and they found some leaks in the Geekbench database. The results are pretty similar to AMD's existing Ryzen CPUs.



Up to DirectX 12 level 1

Like you might know, there are different DirectX 12 features levels and they’re categorized in tiers. A few days ago, NVIDIA has added DirectX 12 support to its Fermi series of graphics cards and meanwhile there are more rumors about the upcoming AMD RX Vega GPU in that regard.


AMD Vega tested with 3DMark 11

According to a leak spotted by our friends over at Videocardz, several benchmark scores of what could be the upcoming Radeon RX Vega graphics card have appeared online. So far it looks like progress has been made, but the card is still not as quick as we would all like it to be.


10% more this year

According to a new report from Passmark, AMD supposedly made significant progress in recapturing market share from Intel during the last few months. Looking at Passmark's CPU usage graphs, which have been created from benchmarks completed using its software, we see that in Q4 2016 only 17,8% of the tests were done on AMD hardware. At the moment, 26,2% of the tests are completed with AMD platforms and Ryzen CPUs.


Confirmed

AMD is going to present their upcoming Vega-based graphics cards during the CAPSAICIN SIGGRAPH event on Sunday, July 30. Apart from that, it's still not clear if the company will reveal more details on other upcoming products like Ryzen Threadripper or EPYC. Unlike previous Ryzen or EPYC related events, Capsaicin gatherings are organized by the Radeon Technologies Group.


In California

As we all know meanwhile, AMD is going to present their upcoming Vega-based graphics cards during the CAPSAICIN SIGGRAPH event on Sunday, July 30. Apart from that the company could reveal more details on Ryzen Threadripper or EPYC. Unlike previous Ryzen or EPYC related events, Capsaicin gatherings are organized by the Radeon Technologies Group.


Quite empty

Our friends over at PCPerspective have taken several pictures showing the PCB of the new Radeon Vega Frontier Edition graphics card from AMD. The pictures reveal the GPU's PCB design and several interesting new aspects with it. Apart from that they have taken a few pictures of the cooler as well.


Six new models

AMD has announced that their Ryzen PRO CPUs will arrive by the beginning of next year. With the Ryzen PRO series, AMD offers processors with hardware-based cryptography and security technologies in order to help preparing systems against possible threats. According to AMD, the new Ryzen PRO series delivers up to 52% improved compute capability and up to 62% higher multi-threaded performance.

AMD’s Frontier Edition graphics card has been spotted in the Futuremark database, showcasing performance that is similar to the NVIDIA GTX 1080, which would mean that the new AMD flagship graphics card won’t be capable of competing with NVIDIA’s very top range models. However, the results posted in the Futuremark database show some unapproved AMD beta driver. All the scores have been gathered in combination with an Intel Core i7-4790K processor.


Higher than expected

Our friends over at ComputerBase have mentioned the prices of the the Vega Frontier Edition graphics cards from AMD. These new cards are undoubtedly amongst the most anticipated products this year and AMD appears to have prepared an air cooled as well as a water cooled version.


Here comes the bummer: in compute benches

PCWorld apparently had the chance to come up with a preview on the upcoming AMD Radeon Pro Vega Frontier Edition graphics card. In a rather lengthy article they’ve described their experiences regarding the two pre-built systems by AMD they were allowed to fiddle with. It looks like the Pro Vega Frontier Edition is a strong performer when it comes to compute heavy benchmarks yet it also packs a punch dealing with recent games.


300W air cooled, 375W water cooled

The launch of AMD’s RX Vega series graphics cards is one of those that’s being expected but it apparently takes ages until it happens. According to latest information it’s supposed to take place in early-August or even late-July during the Siggraph 2017 event.


Powered by Vega

AMD
Already last year, AMD had first shown their upcoming Radeon Instinct compute accelerators as well as the Radeon Open Compute platform (ROCm). These accelerators are designed to challenge NVIDIA in the deep learning and machine intelligence field of application. At the time, AMD didn’t share much information about the specifications of these accelerators. Nevertheless AMD has finally announced the MI25, which is their new flagship model.


Ranging from 2133 to 3200 MHz

AMD
AMD has released a list of Ryzen compatible DDR4 memory kits that have been tested at rated speeds with Ryzen CPUs at D.O.C.P. settings. According to AMD, some of these kits will require the the BIOS to be updated so the latest AGESA 1.0.0.6 microcode is in place.


B2 stepping incoming

AMD
During the last past months AMD has released several AGESA updates addressing issues related to memory support and/or CPU performance in general. According to CanardPC, AMD appears to be working on a new B2 stepping in the case of their 14nm "Summit Ridge" silicon. The B2 stepping should addresses a lot of hardware-level issues that cannot be fixed by “simple” BIOS/AGESA updates.


That’s quite expensive ...

AMD
According to the latest rumors from our friends over at Videocardz, the next generation of AMD graphics cards, which will be based on the upcoming Vega architecture has been spotted in a retail shop. AMD's Radeon Vega cards may be amongst the most anticipated product family of the year. According to Scan UK and SabrePC in the USA, the Vega Frontier Edition should cost $1199 US.


According to Geekbench database

AMD
Although the acclaimed launch date will be somewhen during the upcoming weeks news leaks related to Threadripper are making it through almost every day. This time wccftech jumped the gun and they have found some leaks in the Geekbench database. The results are pretty similar to AMD's existing Ryzen CPUs.
