AMD’s Polaris 10 video card may come with 4096 stream processors
Just like Zen AMD’s new Polaris generation will come with a number of new technologies for even lower power consumption and increased performance. We have been getting leaks on Zen every once in a while but starting now we will likely get leaks on Polaris too.
The first leak is actually here. Apparently there are materials on the Internet that claim that AMD’s Polaris 10 GPU will feature 4096 stream processors. This information has been confirmed by Yu Zheng who has worked on Polaris – he says the new GPU will indeed have 4096 stream processors out of the box. In addition the new card is expected to have 8 GB of HBM2 memory with memory bandwidth of 1 TB/sec as well as improved internal execution units.
The new Polaris architecture is expected in June of this year.
