Along with waiting for updates on the possibility of seeing Vega 20 cores for gaming - we receive reports on cores Polaris 30 are enhanced in the manufacturing process of 12 nanometers
All sources in the network agree, it seems, that NVIDIA Will display a generation graphic cards A new home before the end of the year, but what about AMD? Now we have initial information from reputable sources that she is also planning a refreshing example.
According to the latest information,AMD Updated Polaris 30 cores based on 12 nano lithograph (instead of 14 nm in current generation)Radeon RX 580 andRadeon RX 570 in the last quarter of 2018, that is sometime between October and December.
The new models are expected to offer a 15 percent improvement in performance, presumably without a physical change in the number of existing processing units - but only thanks to improving the production process and speeding up working frequencies, perhaps with the addition of improved graphics and memory interfaces. Even 15 percent is an improvement we welcome in the mid-range market, assuming it carries fair price tags and is reflected in more compact, efficient and cooler products than those that have accompanied us in the last two years, since the launch of theRadeon RX 480.
Using smaller, more efficient cores could allow AMD to finally introduce even the first dedicated mobile models of its kind - thus providing some competition toNVIDIA In a growing market on which the latter took over completely in the age ofPascal. We'll hold on to that.
New Vega models in 7-nanometer lithography will not hit the home market this year for sure, and there still seems to be a clear disagreement about their overall chances of expanding into the field from the world of HPC and professional processing - this decision may well be derived from the Turing family's capabilities NVIDIA To arrive at the end of the year - but in any case the Navi, the true next generation core of AMD Which will also be based on 7 nanometers, there is little chance of seeing action before the second half of next year, so that potential competitors will once again have a serious dilemma between buying and waiting.
