The network claims that the new generation of graphics cards of the American chip developer will be based on architecture Updated with a new name, after five years of GCN
The year 2016 is supposed to lead the I HAVE D To a new and intriguing way in almost all categories, and we are now receiving an official confirmation that it will accompany not only a whole new general processing kernel architecture (Zen) but also a completely new architecture for the graphics core, Polaris (North Star).
The name Polaris was recorded in the company poster, and although we do not have any technical details in the meantime, this is a significant change after five years in which most of the company's graphics core were based on Graphics Core Next architecture, Which replaced the VLIW architectures that also accompanied the developer for years before.
So what about performance? Preliminary reports have stated AMD's intentions, similar to the intentions of AMD NVIDIA To deliver performance up to 2 (performance per watt of power invested) in the new Arctic Islands generation compared to the current Pirate Islands generation, with a somewhat odd tweet of Raja Kodori,Radeon "Polaris today is glowing 2.5 when it was first seen nearly 2,000 years ago," he said, adding that many believe it is actually a declaration that the company's new architecture will be as efficient as 2.5 (or perhaps as powerful as 2.5) from the latest GCN 1.3. We'll hold our fingers and continue to follow.
