Raja Koduri, the head of Radeon Technologies Group says that the architecture team will be coming up with new designs for their GPUs. They will be based on either a 14nm or 16nm fabrication process. The main focus would be on improving power consumption and better performance.
In an interview with Forbes, Koduri explained that AMD’s Radeon Technologies Group will be coming up with designs to create brand new GPU architectures that AMD has been struggling to do. A new refresh to AMD’s GPU architecture will be beneficial for all considering that some of AMD’s GPU architecture is already dated. There are however little details about the upcoming GPUs.
Besides talking about their upcoming GPUs, AMD is also planning to give more attention to their new driver software, Radeon Software Crimson Edition.The new driver was created to replace the old Catalyst Control Centre. Part of this plan is to deliver more frequent driver updates and stable ones too.
AMD’s new Radeon Technologies Group unit consists of three parts – Architecture, Business and Execution. The architecture unit will be working on future GPU designs. Koduri also said that these new strategies by AMD is to attract more consumers and professionals. AMD will also push to provide fully immersive experiences that will prove useful in education, medicine, gaming and virtual reality.
AMD’s main focus now according to Koduri, is to gain the GPU market share in 2016 as well as 2017. Besides that, AMD will also aim to provide the next generation consoles with better GPUs. Next generation consoles will need the graphical capabilities for 4K gaming. All of these improvements done by AMD will very likely close the gap between them and Nvidia.
