AMD Vega: The wait isn’t over
Many enthusiasts expected AMD to reveal more about the rumored RX 490 but sadly, the company hasn’t yet to give what gamers desperately need. AMD, however, teased a few of AMD Vega tech specs at CES.
As far as the performance is concerned, Vega architecture will most likely take on Nvidia Titan. The super-fast graphics card is reportedly using advanced geometry pipeline to enable 2.75 times more boost, Shacknews has learned.
The Vega-based card was demoed on stage during CES. It was used for “Doom” on 4K using a PC. The result was astonishing after GPU was clocked at 70 FPS. The rumor is apparently true, that the Vega’s performance is on par with GTX 1080 and Titan X.
As of this moment, there is no further detail on the price or release date. However, given the show-off at CES, the launch of this new Vega card should be imminent. And after Nvidia has released a few premium chips earlier, AMD should have thought on keeping up with its rival. Source: Universityherald
