AMD Radeon Vega Mobile Discrete Graphics Coming to MacBook Pro
SANTA CLARA, CA, USA, Nov 2, 2018 – Offering fast, powerful, and fluid graphics performance, AMD (NASDAQ: AMD) unveiled new AMD Radeon Vega Mobile graphics processors for next-generation notebooks — including the AMD Radeon Pro Vega 20 and Radeon Pro Vega 16 graphics, which will be available as configuration options on Apple’s 15-inch MacBook Pro starting late November.
AMD Radeon Vega Mobile graphics deliver amazing performance in 3D rendering, photo and video editing, and other creative applications, as well as stunning 1080p HD gaming at ultra settings in today’s top AAA and eSports games.
Powered by the AMD “Vega” architecture1, the new graphics processors were engineered to excel in notebooks for cool and quiet operation. In addition, the processor’s razor-thin design features HBM2 memory (2nd Generation High Bandwidth Memory), which takes up less space in a notebook compared to traditional GDDR5-based graphics processors2.
“Radeon™ Vega Mobile graphics raise the bar for performance in notebooks,” said Scott Herkelman, corporate vice president and general manager, Radeon Technologies Group at AMD. “They provide the best of both worlds: amazing performance for creative applications and visually stunning, responsive gaming for today’s biggest titles in a mobile form factor.”
Radeon Pro Vega 20 and Radeon Pro Vega 16 graphics processors breeze through today’s most demanding rendering, gaming and editing workloads. Next-generation “Vega” architecture compute units (nCU)3 and Rapid Packed Math brings fast and flexible computational capabilities, accelerating workloads in real-time graphics like 3D visualization.
The AMD Radeon Pro Vega 20 and Radeon Pro Vega 16 graphics are new configuration options on the 15-inch MacBook Pro, coming late November.
