Tech ARP had a chance talk with AMD's Jeffrey Cheng about the new Vega GPU memory architecture. He provided some interesting details such as the fact that the new architecture can handle up to 512 TB of addressable memory. With such a large pool it would be possible to store data sets in HBM2 memory to be passed to the GPU as opposed to sitting in general system memory. Utilizing the memory present on the GPU could also reduce costs and energy consumption, not to mention the fact it will perform far more quickly. Pop by to watch the video to see how he feels this could change the way games and software could be programmed.
