The first results of the next AMD Radeon Vega 20 graphics card have been filtered in the 3DMark11 benchmark. This new graphical core is a reduction in the manufacturing node of the current AMD Radeon Vega 10 graphics cards to the 7 nm node, with some improvements that would help them gain some performance. We can not deny that the current AMD Radeon RX Vega graphics cards have been a blessing / curse mix for AMD. Its performance has always been far from what users expected from the beginning of them. However, for AMD the ballot has been saved by the excellent performance of its graphical core AMD Radeon Vega 10 in computing operations, which has led it to become one of the most widely used models in cryptocurrency mining.
All this has made this model has been one that has sold exceptionally well, reaching to shoot their prices well above the price recommended by the manufacturer when the first models reached the market. And, even so, there has been a general shortage of the market during all the time it has been in production. To which we can not fail to add the multiple problems that have been with the manufacture of their GPU, which have significantly weighed the production of these until only recently, which seems to have been solved enough.
The AMD Radeon Vega 20 graphics card whose results have been leaked in the 3DMark11 benchmark is an engineering sample that belongs to the Radeon Instinct series that the manufacturer showed on Twitter last week, and whose drivers have to be pinned, as to which should be the first to develop for this model of graphics card. Keep in mind that Radeon Instinct graphics cards are more models for computer and Machine Learning, which do not usually have graphic outputs since they do not require them to work. Although this aspect to us, as users, we should give equal given that the RX models of AMD Radeon would carry these video outputs since, in essence, they will be the same graphics card, although with different amounts of HBM memory in their cores.
As for the results of the benchmark 3DMark11, they are consistent with a decrease in the node making the GPU, which must have enabled a marginal increase in the frequency of operation. Although, as we said, given how green these drivers are, it would be normal to see an increase in performance in future leaks as they mature. via videocardz
