If AMD does end up using GDDR5 in Vega 11, would that put them behind Volta midrange cards? I heard a rumor that Volta would be using GDDR6, and have a lot higher memory bandwidth as a result.Reply

HBM2 just seems far too expensive for the midrange market without huge losses on every card so I'm not sure if there are many other options available to AMD except hunker down and wait for Navi. GDDR5 may help keep prices down and AMD should still be competitive at their price points.


Whatever the outcome within reason, bandwidth is not going to be such a dealbreaker for cards aimed at lower resolutions than 4K.

Its not really a remake.

I was expecting an EA official remake from that title. A mod is nice, but nowhere near what I was expecting.

The top Vega 11 card would have to be close to a 1070 at least, meaning RX 56/64 will have to be refreshed to be faster when Volta comes out.

I think that's the 14nm+ Vega in the roadmap slide from AMD. Probably will be higher clocks, and hopefully some power draw improvements as well.
