AMD “Vega” GPU Handles 4K DOOM at Almost 70 FPS

AMD held an event over the weekend in Sonoma, CA where they showcased a next-generation high-end graphics card based on the “Vega” architecture. This prototype was inside of a machine running DOOM at 4K Ultra HD resolution. With the Vulkan API enabled the card was able to get close to 70 FPS!

Not much information is known about this prototype, but some details have slipped out. Apparently that chip will have a floating point performance of 25 TFLOP/s (FP16), and 12.5 TFLOP/s (FP32, single-precision). That is higher (at least on paper) than the NVIDIA TITAN X Pascal. Other details on the specifications have emerged as well, the card will have 8GB of HBM2 memory, with a memory bandwidth of 512 GB/s. This is also higher than the 480 GB/s of the NVIDIA TITAN X Pascal. We are not sure what segment AMD will place this card in.
