You dipshit, it will have two HBM units, just at 4-stack heights instead of 8-stack heights.

This should allow for much better heat characteristics of the HBM modules, in turn meaning higher clock rates (probably stock 1000Mhz and up to 1100 or 1150 on custom boards)

>> No.61199409

I'm very neutral when it comes to hardware companies but it's still obvious to me that something is simply wrong with vega. It makes no sense. They put all this time into it and have marketing material claiming significant architectural gains and they just do not seem to be in the FE product.
Raja said "flavors of RX vega will actually be faster than FE" which to me sound like maybe a water cooled one and a dual GPU card but that isn't enough. FE is not fast enough to justify the architecture.
Polaris would have been sufficient if they made a larger die. If they just straight up shrunk fiji it would have been enough. So why go through all the trouble?
The answers that make sense to me are; there was a serious hardware bug that resulted in major uarch features being disabled. gaming friendly features were some how counter productive to professional workloads so were disabled. major driver issues. or the arch is significantly better in things like APUs and other non-enthusiast applications.
Any one of these can be the case but of course I have no information in that regard. Unless the card is priced where it performs it has little reason to exist. If I can get 980ti/1070 performance at the same price from AMD I'll sell my 980ti so I can use freesync but that's all this card has going for it.

>> No.61199410

Vega FE can overclock its HBM to 1100 as told in this video:

"Memory can be pushed to about 1075"

Vega FE with 8-hi HBM stacks can apparently OC from 945Mhz to 1075-1100Mhz

Besides your inability to logically reason that more stacks of heat producing dies decreases the rate of heat transfer for the lower stacks,
Screencap this post and laugh at me when RX Vega is released and overclockers can push their 8GB of memory higher than Vega FE owners can push their 16GB

as efficient TBR is, I doubt it can make up for the extra TDP produced by having a hardware scheduler built into the chip. Nvidia's overhead is less because of pushing that onto the CPU. We will likely see a 10-20% increase if TBR and other optimizations are added but this chip is inherently limited by a higher TDP and lower clock speeds. Maybe, with luck, rx vega will have a second stepping of the chip or it'll run cooler from some optimization.

It's the classic AMD strategy. They can't develop products for shit so they have to rely on gimmicks that sound intimidating and powerful.

Bulldozer with with its MOAR (half)COARS. Bulldozer and Vishera with its MUH GIGAHURTZ MUH HIGH CLOCKS (and half the IPC of an i3). The r9 390 withs EIGHT GIGABYTES while the card wasn't powerful enough to actively use even 6 gbs, let alone 8, but it fooled the clueless retards who think you measure a GPU's power by the amount of memory you throw into it and that all you need for 4k gaming is a retarded amount of memory. Fury with its meme HBM memory that achieved FUCKALL and water cooling to provide you with the OVERCLOCKER'S DREAM, even though it couldn't OC worth a shit. Then we have mantle/directx 12 and endless Ashes of Singularity which literally no one has played because it's the only case scenario where all this worthless garbage provides any actual advantage. Now we have the return of the meme with HBM 2, because yeah, we are totally so starved for bandwidth, amirite? But hey, don't lose faith, all this very efficient tech totally shows off! But please ignore the fact that you can't see this supposed "revolution" in benchmarks, can't see it in any real world performance test, can't see it in any day to day scenario, can't see it in literally fucking nothing.

they were good cards but were hamstrung by high prices because of HBM and high TDP, but they were nowhere near bad. They were competitive with the 980 and 980 ti, the top dog cards at the time, and the lower VRAM was not the bottleneck. The marketing of "overclocker's dream" was a fucking mistake though.
