AMD RADEON VEGA 16G HBC Frontier Edition (Air Cooler)
“Vega” GPU Architecture
The Radeon™ Vega Frontier Edition graphics card was the first to feature AMD’s cutting edge “Vega” GPU architecture, purpose-built to handle big data sets and a diverse range of computational workloads.
Up to 13.1 TFLOPS of peak single-precision floating-point performance
Tremendous compute power to speed up professional applications where high performance is paramount, from rendering video effects to visualizing complex simulations.
64 Next-Generation Compute Units (nCUs, 4096 Stream Processors) with support for double-rate 16-bit math
New compute unit design provides super-charged pathways to provide double the processing throughput when using 16-bit data types, accelerating demanding workloads including image/video processing, ray tracing, and artificial intelligence.
OpenCL™ 2.0 Support
Enables professionals to tap into the parallel computing power of modern GPUs and multi-core CPUs to accelerate compute-intensive tasks in leading CAD/CAM/CAE and Media & Entertainment applications that support OpenCL.
High-Bandwidth Cache Controller
The state of the art memory system on Radeon Vega Frontier Edition GPUs removes the capacity limitations of traditional GPU memory. Thanks to automatic, fine-grained memory movement controlled by the high-bandwidth cache controller, Radeon Vega Frontier Edition processors enable creators and designers to work with much larger, more detailed models and assets in real time.
16GB High-Bandwidth Cache
The Radeon Vega Frontier Edition graphics card employs cutting-edge HBM2 memory as an extremely large and ultra-fast hardware-managed cache for external memory or storage devices. This allows the Radeon Vega Frontier Edition graphics card to efficiently access up to hundreds of terabytes of graphics memory, making it the ideal graphics card for handling massive textures and data sets.
Efficient Geometry Engine
The new geometry pipe in the “Vega” GPU architecture can process millions of polygons due to its efficient load balancing. The Radeon Vega Frontier Edition offers 2x peak geometry throughput per clock 1 to significantly speed up modelling and design workflows in various rendering engines. Modelling applications will be able to render in real-time heavy 3D models and large scenes.
Enhanced Pixel Engine
Updated rasterizer technology to improve cache locality and overdraw, enhancing rendering efficiency and leaving the headroom to crank up quality settings while maintaining smooth 3D rendering.
Native support for 10-bits per color channel for color-critical tasks. Driving an effective 30-bits per pixel, the Radeon™ Vega Frontier Edition card is great for any workload requiring that level of detail and color precision.
Comprehensive API Support
The “Vega” architecture supports the latest programming interfaces for graphics and compute tasks, including Vulkan® 1.0, OpenGL® 4.5, OpenCL™ 2.0, and DirectX® 12. Coupled with support for API extensions through the AMD GPUOpen initiative, the Radeon Vega Frontier Edition card comes ready to handle both current and future applications.
AMD Eyefinity Technology
Industry-leading multi-display technology enabling highly immersive and unrivaled multi-tasking across multiple displays 2, powered by a single Radeon Vega Frontier Edition graphics card.
4K Accelerated Encode/Decode
Multi-stream hardware H.265 HD encode/decode for power-efficient and quick video encoding and playback. 3
TrueAudio Next Technology
High fidelity physically-based audio rendering technology, based on Radeon™ Rays and utilizing the power of dedicated compute units. This feature is perfect for creating and editing immersive Virtual Reality experiences.
Energy Efficient Design
The Radeon™ Vega Frontier Edition graphics card supports unique power monitoring and management technologies, and has a maximum power consumption of 300 watts TDP board power (air cooled) or 375 watts (liquid cooled). AMD PowerTune technology dynamically optimizes GPU power usage and AMD ZeroCore Power technology significantly reduces power consumption at idle 2.
