Re: rx canis gpu

It was an April Fools Day joke. However Intel does have a chip out that does have an AMD Vega GPU on the same silicon. 

So if you'd like some real information over fiction you can check that info out here:

Re: rx canis gpu

This website gives the Specs on the RX Canis. So, I don't think it is a April Fool's joke.: https://linustechtips.com/main/topic/911630-amdintel-project-canis/ . Many of the Comments also mentions it is a April Fool's joke because it was leaked on April 1. But it has too much specific details to be a gag. IMO.

This card is going to be pulling 350 watts of power with three "8 pin"  connectors. With 32 Gbytes of HBM4 Memory. Sound more like a Professional GPU card than a regular User Card.

BTW, 2H-2018 means it will be launched in the Second Half of 2018 as per this definition:

Re: rx canis gpu

Cool if it is real. I had replied it was an April fools joke as that is what pretty much every person said it is under that linked video. But I don't even know where my reply is? Deleted? If it is real is would be cool for someone in the know to respond.

Re: rx canis gpu

Pretty elaborate April Fools Joke. Pretty detailed GPU Specs.

It does seem to be a Joke but not entirely false according to this Website on several April Fools Jokes this year: April Fools news roundup - The Tech Report

AMD itself stayed above the fray as far as we can tell, but Wccftech wrote about an extreme expansion of the collaboration between the red graphics team and Intel, saying that Intel would manufacture the 10,240-stream-processor Radeon RX Canis chip. While this would have at one point seemed far too ridiculous to ever be possible, developments in the last few months have shown that the rivals are willing to work together when it suits them.

Re: rx canis gpu

Theres some truth to this card from what I have read after this posting. The only tid bits I have read & seen unofficial/ official channels atm, going be a workstation Cad card for the competition against Nvidia Pro segment built for Rendering & highly complex that the Pro sector needs. Expect pricing to be as simular levels as the Nvidia High end Pro cad cards but priced a bit more competitively. Some truth to this but the specs are a bit off know they are in process of making something in the line up but official name has been alot or rumors till its officially out. Suppose to be mixing with the 10/7nm process as Intel are wanting the 7nm process AMD are going towards why Intel are collaborating atm so they can steal the technology apply it & get the jump on Nvidia & copy AMD 7nm tech & make there own trying to crush AMD in the process. Hopefully AMD keep the 7nm process a closely guarded secret away from all competitors be nice for AMD to have the Processing jump for a few years so the big 2 competitors have to play catch up. Hope AMD have some agreements & clauses in place so they have a few years of superior 7nm tech advance on Intel for a few years be a good way to finally get them in the market as an innovator & new go to brand instead of Intels bs dominace for all those years. Be funny & good to see AMD take the market share they been lacking & take back. Makes the playing field alot more even & balanced to for AMD for the first time in many many years to be ahead of the competition & stay ahead for the change. But expect Intel & nvidia to be stealing AMD innovation hope AMD has a few things in place where if they try steal the tech they get stung like they been doing to AMD for all those years. Wanna see team red flurrish. If they can pull of a good Workstation card be a great step for all Tech companies to learn from & get AMD back into the market they havnt been able to gain traction in fo many years.
