Google Stadia cloud gaming platform with AMD's first generation Vega GPU

The GPU is jointly customized with AMD, 56 computing units (3584 stream processors), floating point performance 10.7TFlops, with 16GB of video memory.

From the parameter point of view, Google should useVariant version of RX Vega 56The latter also has 56 computing units with a floating point performance of 10.5TFlops, but the memory is only 8GB HBM2.It seems that Google should use a combination of 8GB BHM2 memory plus 8GB DDR4 onboard memory.

Now more clear evidence comes: the standard specification organization Khronos Group lists the Google Stadia platform in the Vulkan product list, which is described as "Google Games Platform Gen 1 (AMD GCN 1.5)", that is, usedAMD GCN version 1.5 architecture, which corresponds to the various products of the 14nm Vega core, including RX Vega 56/64, Vega Frontier Edition, Radeon Instinct MI60/50 and more.

The Radeon VII released this year uses the 7nm Vega core and the architecture version is GCN 1.5.1.

Google Stadia does not seem to use the latest 7nm Vega seems to be somewhat regrettable and backward, but after all, to consider the platform development cycle, the design of the first choice must be 14nm Vega, not to mention the generation of architecture is not very successful, but the performance is still strong enough Can kill any host.

NVIDIA has been pushing its own cloud gaming platform, GeForce Now, and Google can only choose AMD, soThe next generation of the Google Stadia platform will almost certainly be upgraded to 7nm Navi.

Of course don't forget,Microsoft and Sony's next-generation consoles will also be Navi GPUs, supplemented by Zen CPUs. AMD's semi-custom business is stable.
