New Video Accelerators from AMD Will Be Based on Vega 10 Chips

According to available information, AMD will introduce two new lines of graphics accelerators next quarter. Those are Radeon RX Vega and Radeon RX 500.



Radeon RX Vega will be constructed with Vega architecture based GPU, and Radeon RX 500 will inherit accelerators, built on renamed Polaris series chips, which are well-known due to Polaris 12 chips and Radeon RX 400 cards. It is also reported, that latest driver packages for Linux contain an ID list of devices, designed with a Vega 10 graphics engine.


The data obtained indicate, that in the short term seven devices will be equipped with the Vega 10 chip. In particular, these products will include Radeon RX Vega video cards, alongside with high-end Radeon Instinct and Radeon Pro WX families accelerators.


Please note, that the Radeon RX 500 official announcement is expected to take place on the 18th of April, and Radeon RX Vega will be presented during the Computex 2017 event, which is planned to be conducted in Taipei …

Transcend SSD220S: Affordable TLC-Based Solid-State Drive

Transcend expands its lineup of SSDs with a new model – the SSD220S. It is based on 15-nm TLC memory chip available in 240 GB & 480 GB capacities. The model employs SATA 6 Gb/sec interface as well as DDR3 cache-memory. The drive is housed in a small-sized aluminum case (100x69.85x6.8 mm dimensions).



Transcend SSD220S boasts satisfactory Read/Write speed showings: sequential Read/Write data transfer activity – 550/450 Mb/sec, random – Read/Write data transfer activity (4K) – 80.000 IOPS. At the same time, Read/Write incompressible data transfer speed does not go beyond 330 Mb/sec. Moreover, these SSDs support all modern technologies, including Advanced Garbage Collection, SMART, TRIM, NCQ, and DevSleep.


To add, it’s always possible to upload SSD Scope software pack to further improve the performance. The drive is ready to operate in a wide range of temperatures (0-+70 degrees). The 240-gigabyte model costs 69 EUR, whereas its senior companion (480-gigabyte item) …

Promising Speed Forecasts for AMD Radeon 8000 Sea Islands

AMD is continuing its work on the new GPU generation codenamed ‘Sea Islands’. The new series is prognosticated to be released in the coming winter. All the products with this GPU will be branded Radeon 8000. AMD manufacturers claim that their new graphic processing units will be 40% more efficient due to the implemented advanced technologies. There is not so much news about the future GPU architecture, although cardinal changes are barely possible.



Sea Islands chips will be equipped with 5.1 billion transistors as compared with the current 4.3 billion items applied in the products. This augmentation will facilitate the increment of efficiency. The chips will be developed according to the already tried-and-proven 28 nm technological requirements. The increase of transistors is not as large due to the adherence to the ascribed norms. It should be underlined that the implementation of the old technologies does not imply the considerable warming up of the chips; the developments …
