AMD presented a new dual-GPU graphics card over the weekend, but it is not for consumers. Instead, the company's new Radeon Pro V340 will stream virtualized workloads in the data center, potentially including cloud gaming solutions.
The company referred cloud gaming as one of the programs the new card is specially designed to handle, along with the workloads in the company, CAD, Graphic rendering and Desktop as a service (DaaS).
"The V340 is an animal," says AMD. "It's a dual-GPU solution based on the advanced AMD-Vega architecture, optimized for delivering extreme performance and high user density for virtualized environments."
It is also the first VDI hardware solution equipped with 32GB HBM2 memory and 51
Armed with two GPUs built on the same 14nm FinFET manufacturing process like other Vega GPUs, the Radeon Pro v340 has 112 computing devices and 7 168 power processors to wrap workload.
In short, this is essentially two Vega 56 graphics cards packed into one, at least when it comes to GPUs. The bandwidth width is higher on the Radeon Pro V340, although AMD did not specify other important details, such as clock speed and top computer performance.
Cloud-based games have not yet accelerated, partly due to challenges related to latency. It is an effort to push the concept, especially LiquidSky's online service and Nvidia's GeForce Now-closed beta.
