AMD Boasts Radeon RX Vega As A Revolutionary GPU for Notebook with HBM2; A Strong Contender Against NVIDIA

AMD promised that its new Radeon RX Vega in the AMD Tech Summit in Beijing as the revolutionary GPU that pose a strong challenge for NVIDIA. The new GPU from AMD is a revolutionary one, as it combines the power and performance in a small package.

Since AMD announced the Radeon RX Vega in January, the company promised the graphics card to become a revolutionary one. The Radeon RX Vega has been one of the most anticipated GPUs this year. This week, AMD announced that the card graphics will be dedicated for notebooks.

AMD Vice President Scott Herkelman revealed in Beijing about the new graphics card, as reported by Video Cardz. The audience has waited anxiously to listen to his presentation about the AMD Radeon RX Vega during the AMD Tech Summit last weekend. Aside from the curiosity about the new graphics card, Herkelman is a former general manager at NVIDIA that handles the GeForce product line, a direct contender of Radeon product line.

“Vega will use HBM2 that has different capacity stacks,” Herkelman explained the VRAM stack. "You will see from our board partners different configurations."

The most interesting part of Vega is the usage of the second generation of High Bandwidth Memory, known as HBM2 to reduce the memory footprints. HBM2 enable the memory to achieve higher bandwidth capacity with less power by stacking a VRAM instead of DRAM in its memory architecture. AMD has declared its Radeon RX Vega as the world most scalable GPU memory architecture.

Furthermore, AMD Radeon RX Vega and its HBM2 technology offer a high-bandwidth cache, enabling game developers to render the game more freely without worry about the lag. The HBM2 technology enables the GPU to stream the game data from the system memory and SSD, managed by HBCC as bandwidth controller.

The HBM2 memory architecture delivers a great performance in a smaller package, posing a serious challenge for NVIDIA in the notebook GPU market. Watch the explanation of the RAM architecture from Radeon RX Vega from AMD below:
