AMD is gearing up to launch their next series of Radeon 300 GPUs which will usher in a new range of High Bandwidth Memory for the first time.
The company during its financial analyst meet confirmed the news and added that the new HBM technology will allow them to drastically increase the memory power of their graphic cards. In other words, pushing them to reach 4 GB or 6 GB of memory shouldn’t cost you a fortune.
Nvidia is planning to do the same but their line-up of HBM GPUs will get launched only in 2016 which brings AMD quicker to the race. It allows them to deliver more RAM power with decreased power consumption and also deliver 4K resolution with utmost ease.
AMD Radeon 300 GPUs will have full support for virtual reality headsets including Oculus Rift which has been confirmed to start shipping from 2016. It will easily render games in 4K resolution and from the looks of it, PS4 and Xbox One is going to meet a tough foe than ever before.
The last launch from AMD was towards the end of 2013 and it is a long wait. It is to be seen how they outperform the powerful GPUs Nvidia has including the popular GTX 970 and the GTX 980, besides the cheaper GTX 750 Ti.
Gamers have their choice when it comes to buying graphic cards and making an upgrade this quarter will let you play some amazing titles including Witcher 3 Wild Hunt and Batman Arkham Knight.
