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 is quite difficult to argue that this is a surprising move - the network reported that AMD's Radeon VII cards were presented on the main stage at CES in January Have reached the status of EOL (End of Life), meaning that their commercial marketing has actually ended in terms of the company, and thus we come a step closer to ending the controversial life of the E-Vega All of it.
We first received statements fromI HAVE D That there are no plans to use Vega cores that have been converted from 14 nanometer manufacturing to an innovative 7 nanometer manufacturing process for gaming applications and products, but only as part of products to accelerate HPC arrays -Radeon 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 Have proven that it is difficult to teach an old dog new exercises - and AMD once again found itself lagging behind when it comes to capabilities behind NVIDIA's samples. A basic price tag of 700 dollars and limited availability that in some cases jumped the price above the recommended threshold did not help to gain momentum - and then came Launch of Navi As the more efficient and effective future architecture of I HAVE D, 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 The custom design of AMD's partner manufacturers, instead of the standard reference board design in advance, is nil - and so is the chance to see any additional Radeon products in the future with Vega cores. What is left on the market now is mainly APU mobile and stationary products that include built-in Vega cores, and there, too, the expectation is that we'll 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.
