    [news] AMD "Vega 20" GPU Not Before Late Q1-2019

    AMD "Vega 20" is a new GPU based on existing "Vega" graphics architecture, which will be fabbed on the 7 nanometer silicon fabrication process, and bolstered with up to 32 GB of HBM2 memory across a 4096-bit memory interface that's double the bus-width of "Vega 10". AMD CEO Lisa Su already exhibited a mock-up of this chip at Computex 2018, with an word that alongside its "Zen 2" based EPYC enterprise processors, "Vega 20" will be the first 7 nm GPU. AMD could still make good on that word, only don't expect to find one under your tree this Holiday.

    According to GamersNexus, the first "Vega 20" products won't launch before the turn of the year, and even in 2019, one can expect product launches till the end of Q1 (before April). GamersNexus cites reliable sources hinting at the later-than-expected arrival of "Vega 20" as part of refuting alleged "Final Fantasy XV" benchmarks of purported "Vega 20" engineering samples doing rounds on the web. Lisa Su stressed the importance of data-center GPUs in AMD's Q3-2018 earnings call, which could hint at the possibility of AMD allocating its first "Vega 20" yields to high-margin enterprise brands such as Radeon Pro and Radeon Instinct.

    Who cares? It's not for gaming.

    IDK about you, but I'm not that passionate about whatever hardware my IT department decides to buy for work. It's whatever, y'know?

    So I agree with you that the brand of what they buy is kinda irrelevant, but I definitely care about which part they give me lol. Like the difference between an i5 and i7 alone can be massive when doing simulations.

    I remember the days when i worked for large companies, I was lucky enough that I could order what I wanted.
    It pissed the tech group off so much, at first I was surprised, but I got used to it and it happened at a few companies.

    I remember when I first ordered dual monitors, lol that was a fight.

    But company hardware is about price, support and stability. Hardware, especially for us XS types is about getting the cutting edge...
    Yea!
