AMD’s Next-Generation GPU Will Have 2x Performance Per Watt over Fury X

At this point we really do not know that much about AMD’s next generation GPU. We do however know that will be feature HBM2 with over 1TB/s of memory bandwidth. Well AMD CEO Lisa Su recently stated, “We are also focused on delivering our next generation GPUs in 2016 which is going to improve performance per watt by two times compared to our current offerings, based on design and architectural enhancements as well as advanced FinFET products process technology”.

This should definitely get AMD fans excited. That means you will see 60 FPS at 4K on pretty much every game that is out right now without a single problem. This also means these new cards will be perfect for VR as headsets like the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive as they need around 90 FPS for the best experience.

AMD’s next GPU is codenamed “Greenland” and is said to pack in 18 billion transistors. This is up from the 8.9 billion that is found on the Fiji GPU. If that is the case we should see somewhere around 8192 stream processors for the big chip and something like 6700 for the smaller chip. Keep in mind this is on the 16 nm process so expect a pretty big jump in performance. While it might not be a 100% jump, it will be significant.
