Vega is a major evolution of the Radeon graphics architecture, with innovations across multiple core fronts of the silicon. New GPUs feature a High Bandwidth Cache and memory controllers remove the capacity limitations of traditional GPU memory. Thanks to automatic, fine-grained memory movement controlled by the high-bandwidth cache controller, new architecture enables access to much larger, more detailed assets. Vega GPU utilizes HBM2, the latest in graphics memory technology, to provide incredible levels of power efficiency and memory performance. RTG engineers also equipped Vega chips with Next-Gen Compute units. This translates to higher possible clock speeds, better throughput and double the peak polygon per clock handled by the engine (vs R9 Fury X). The Pixel Engine also received a Next-Gen makeover, boosting the shading performance especially vital for gaming. Significant advancements were made to the geometry engine as well.
