The world's first graphics card with a 7 nanometer core ends its path in a weak voice, only six months after being exposed
It's pretty hard to argue that this is a surprising move here - the network reports that AMD's Radeon VII cards were presented on the main stage at CES in January Have reached the end of Life (EOL) status, which means that their commercial marketing has ended in practice for the company, and we are now taking another step towards ending the controversial life of the architectureVega All of it.
We first received statements fromAMD There are no plans to use Vega cores that have been converted from a 14 nm manufacturing process to an innovative 7 nm manufacturing process for gaming and gaming applications, but only within products to accelerate HPC arrays - but finally the launch of theRadeon Vega VII, which included a VEGA 20 core with 3,840 active operation units, 16GB of memory HBM2 Built on top of the chip and a massive power envelope of 300 watts.
Despite these excellent opening figures, The actual performance of the Vega VII Prove that it is difficult to teach an old dog new exercises - and AMD has once again found itself retarded when it comes to the capabilities behind NVIDIA models. Basic 700 dollar price tag and limited availability that in some cases jumped the price above the recommended threshold did not help gain momentum - and then came Launch of Navi As the more efficient and effective future architecture of AMD, Pre-developed for the production process of 7 nm and not only retroactively adapted to it.
In the current situation, it seems likely that we will see Radeon VII models Custom design by AMD's partner manufacturers, instead of the standard council reference design in advance, is nil - and so is the chance to see any other Radeon products in the future with Vega cores. What remains on the market now is mainly mobile and stationary APU products that have built-in Vega cores, and the expectation is that we will see a jump Navi architecture The new with the jump to the core Zen attitude 2 instead Zen attitude Plus, in the next generation.
Will you miss Vega for all its various and sundry derivatives, or you'll be glad it's on its way to extinction from the market (Polaris Which preceded it will disappear)? Talk about it in comments.
