AMD has confirmed Navi will be professional market only in 2018, so Vega will compete against Volta...What a mess Raja Koduri left AMD in...And not just AMD, we all suffer...
What we know of right now is that Nvidia is going to release a new graphics architecture for consumer gaming graphics cards. We know this because Nvidia has already released Nvidia Volta for the professional market as well as the server market. It is anticipated that Nvidia Volta will be coming out for gaming graphics cards later this year.
Why is this a problem? While we thought that Navi would be coming out this year it seems that it will not be implemented into gaming products this year and AMD will have to face off Nvidia Volta with the AMD Vega 64 and AMD Vega 56. We have seen the AMD graphics roadmap for 2018 and it does not look good at all for team red.
How will AMD RX Vega 64 and 56 be able to compete with the all new Nvidia Volta graphics cards? The answer is simple, AMD won’t be able to compete for the high-end market at all. Nvidia Volta can barely match the high-end Pascal graphics cards and Nvidia Volta will blow AMD RX Vega out of the water.
