Radeon Vega Frontier Edition is Here
We are proud to announce that the Radeon™ Vega Frontier Edition graphics card is available for purchase from select regions today! When we first mentioned this card back in May, we said that it is for the pioneers of the world. Those who see boundaries as starting lines, and who risk everything in pursuit of innovation. Radeon Vega Frontier Edition is now here to help expand the boundaries of what’s possible. We are empowering the next generation of pioneers to help drive the new digital world.
The Radeon™ Vega Frontier Edition graphics card is the pinnacle of AMD graphics technology. It is the first in a full line of graphics cards and accelerators based on the “Vega” GPU architecture. Breakthrough technologies and advanced features like our High Bandwidth Cache Controller, Enhanced Geometry Engine and Pixel Engine, and double-rate 16-bit math, all combine to enrich a users’ experience with this groundbreaking graphics card.Learn more about the “Vega” GPU Architecture
From advanced design visualization, to game development, and deep learning algorithms, the Radeon™ Vega Frontier Edition graphics card is designed to tackle these unique workflows and more. We fully understand that hardware alone isn’t a solution, and having a complete open software ecosystem is just as important as the hardware itself. A significant amount of investment and resources have been committed to developing out our ROCm open software platform and machine learning libraries, as well as advanced visualization tools and plugins like Radeon ProRender, LiquidVR™ and Radeon Loom, all of which can be leveraged on the new Radeon Vega Frontier Edition graphics card.Learn more about the digital pioneers
A Closer Look at Vega Performance
When it comes to machine learning and professional visualization workloads, the Radeon Vega Frontier Edition is in a class of its own. Here are some quick specs to back this up:
Single Precision Floating Point (FP32) Performance: Up to 13.1 TFLOPS
Half Precision Floating Point (FP16) Performance: Up to 26.2 TFLOPS
Memory Capacity and Type: 16GB HBC
Memory Interface: 2048-bit
Memory Bandwidth: 483 GB/s
Peak Triangles/s (BT/s): 6.4
With our High Bandwidth Cache Controller, the cornerstone of our advanced GPU memory architecture, the Radeon Vega Frontier Edition has the capability of expanding traditional GPU memory to 256TB, allowing users to tackle massive datasets with ease.
Once you combine all these different ingredients together, you’ll end up with one very fast and capable card. Have a look at the performance below, where we line up the Radeon Vega Frontier Edition against Titan Xp for advanced visualization and media entertainment workloads, and the NVIDIA Tesla P100 for compute:
Performance: See endnotes for details.
Performance: lower is better. See endnotes for details.
These results speak for themselves. For pioneers who are looking for the latest in GPU technology and performance, there simply isn’t any other card more capable than the new Radeon Vega Frontier Edition graphics card.Radeon Vega Frontier Edition Buy now
