AMD Officially Reveals & Details Its Upcoming Polaris GPU Architecture, First GPU Coming In Mid-2016

AMD has issued a press release today, officially revealing its Polaris GPU Architecture, highlighting a wide range of significant architectural improvements including HDR monitor support, and industry-leading performance-per-watt. AMD expects shipments of Polaris architecture-based GPUs to begin in mid-2016.

AMD’s Polaris architecture-based 14nm FinFET GPUs promises to deliver a remarkable generational jump in power efficiency. Polaris-based GPUs are designed for fluid frame rates in graphics, gaming, VR and multimedia applications running on compelling small form-factor thin and light computer designs.

Lisa Su, president and CEO of AMD said:

“Our new Polaris architecture showcases significant advances in performance, power efficiency and features. 2016 will be a very exciting year for RadeonT fans driven by our Polaris architecture, Radeon Software Crimson Edition and a host of other innovations in the pipeline from our Radeon Technologies Group.”
