AMD is one of the industry leaders for discrete Graphic Processor Unit (GPUs) in the market together with its competitor Nvidia. It is also the second-largest supplier and, solely, the significant rival to Intel in the market when it comes to x86-based microprocessors.
Recently, information technology experts made a big buzz over the internal server roadmap of AMD that has been leaked by Videocardz. It has been noted that Videocardz have a decent track record with publishing early information.
According to Techspot.com, the company's server roadmap detailed their next generation Vega and Navi GPUs. The roadmap that has a 3-year span, or up to 2019, illustrates how AMD will configure their next-generation GPUs into different server segments.
The report has briefly detailed three further GPUs: Vega 11, Navi 10 and Navi 11. They are scheduled for release next year. Vega 11 will replace Polaris 10 in AMD's mid-range GPU line up.
This year, AMD started off with replacing most of their graphics lineup with Polaris-based cards. In terms of efficiency or performance, the most selling point for these cards was their competitive pricing.
Year 2017, AMD plans to upgrade all of their GPUs to the new FinFET architecture. Vega GPUs will be aiming for the high-end market; while Polaris serves the mainstream. AMD Vega 10 is expected to launch in first quarter of 2017.
Meanwhile, according to Digitaltrends.com, AMD's Vega 10 products will compete with Nvidia's GeForce GTX 1070 and GTX 1080 graphics cards.
From the leaked details, it has been a now public information that Vega 10 can feature up to 4096 stream processors based on a new GCN uARCH (GFX9). The chip has as much as 24 TFLOPs of half-precision and 12 TFLOPs of single precision compute performance.
Finally, the next generation Navi graphic chips will come in two variants: the Navi 10 and 11, which are respectively the future GPUs planned ahead for release in 2019.
