    [News] AMD "Vega 20" with 32 GB HBM2 3DMark 11 Score Surfaces

    https://www.techpowerup.com/243758/a...score-surfaces

    With the latest Radeon Vega Instinct reveal, it's becoming increasingly clear that "Vega 20" is an optical shrink of the "Vega 10" GPU die to the new 7 nm silicon fabrication process, which could significantly lower power-draw, enabling AMD to increase clock-speeds. A prototype graphics card based on "Vega 20," armed with a whopping 32 GB of HBM2 memory, was put through 3DMark 11, on a machine powered by a Ryzen 7 1700 processor, and compared with a Radeon Vega Frontier Edition.

    The prototype had lower GPU clock-speeds than the Vega Frontier Edition, at 1.00 GHz, vs. up to 1.60 GHz of the Vega Frontier Edition. Its memory, however, was clocked higher, at 1250 MHz (640 GB/s) vs. 945 MHz (483 GB/s). Despite significantly lower GPU clocks, the supposed "Vega 20" prototype appears to score higher performance clock-for-clock, but loses out on overall performance, in all tests. This could mean "Vega 20" is not just an optical-shrink of "Vega 10," but also benefits from newer architecture features, besides faster memory.

    Kinda screams fake or just wrong clocks reported.

    You expect a die shrink and maybe a few architectural optimizations ( also, consider the fact that a few people, including the organizer, R. Kuduri abandoned the ship during the time ) to make up for 600MHz of GPU clock frequency ?
    It's like you're expecting a Ryzen 3 @ 3GHz to perform better than a Ryzen 2 @ 4GHz ( with both products coming just a year apart )

    Well beyond my pay-grade but IMHO the forest is missing its trees John McEnroe on Line 1, sports fans ...

    Initial silly-con of the Radeon Vega 2(.)0 Instinct ? with ?clocks,? a Ryzen 7 1700 CPU and 3DMark 11. I?m thinking volume discounts in the next 90 days on those fancy new $400k nVidia DGX-2 clusters
