When it comes to multi-GPU (mGPU), most developers immediately think of complicated Crossfire setups with two or more GPUs and how to make their game run well on those setups. This is however only one side of the mGPU story – the other one is mGPU during content creation. If you’re a developer working on a game, you should think of using mGPU to make your life easier.


According to latest rumors, AMD will launch less than 20'000 Vega-based graphics cards during the first months. Probably due to the HBM2 memory limited supply.

AMD will unveil more information about its upcoming GPUs (Vega and Navi) on May 16 2017 during AMD's  Financial Analyst Day.


Here is a simple weather station, coded with GeeXLab, that woks with the Raspberry Pi and the Sense HAT:

It's time for a topic on AMD Vega 10/11 GPUs...

AMD Vega 10 specifications:
- 4096 shader cores (64 Next-Gen compute units, with 64 shader cores per compute unit)
- 4 shader engines (with 1024 shader cores per shader engine)
- 64 ROps
- 256 TMUs
- memory interface: 2048-bit
- memory: 8GB HBM2

First graphics cards based on Vega should be launched near the end of June 2017.

According to some recent news, NVIDIA could probably use the new GDDR6 graphics memory on Volta-based graphics cards planned for 2018.

Press Release: SK Hynix Inc. Introduces Industry’s Fastest 8Gb Graphics DRAM (GDDR6)
Seoul, April 23, 2017 – SK Hynix Inc. (or ‘the Company’, today introduced the world’s fastest 2Znm 8Gb(Gigabit) GDDR6(Graphics DDR6) DRAM. The product operates with an I/O data rate of 16Gbps(Gigabits per second) per pin, which is the industry’s fastest. With a forthcoming high-end graphics card of 384-bit I/Os, this DRAM processes up to 768GB(Gigabytes) of graphics data per second. SK Hynix has been planning to mass produce the product for a client to release high-end graphics card by early 2018 equipped with high performance GDDR6 DRAMs.
GDDR is specialized DRAM for processing an extensive amount of graphics data quickly according to what graphics cards command in PCs, workstations, video players and high performance gaming machines. Especially, GDDR6 is a next generation graphics solution under development of standards at JEDEC, which runs twice as fast as GDDR5 having 10% lower operation voltage. As a result, it is expected to speedily substitute for GDDR5 and GDDR5X. SK Hynix has been collaborating with a core graphics chipset client to timely mass produce the GDDR6 for the upcoming market demands.
“With the introduction of this industry’s fastest GDDR6, SK Hynix will actively respond to high quality, high performance graphics memory solutions market” said senior vice president Jonghoon Oh, the Head of DRAM Product Development Division. “The Company would help our clients enhance their performance of high-end graphics cards” he added.
GDDR6 is regarded as one of necessary memory solutions in growing industries such as AI(Artificial Intelligence), VR(Virtual Reality), self-driving cars, and high-definition displays over 4K to support their visualization. According to Gartner, average graphics DRAM density in graphics cards is to be 2.2GB this year and 4.1GB in 2021 with CAGR of 17%.

Anyway i re-checked today and the output was there again without changing anything.I keep an eye on that...

So probably a bug in GPU Caps Viewer...

First news about Volta appeared few years ago in 2013:

According to these recent rumors, NVIDIA Volta-based graphics cards (GeForce 20 Series - GTX 2080...) should arrive during Q3 2017:

- NVIDIA to launch next-gen Volta-based GeForce in Q3 2017
- Pascal lineup is complete now that NVIDIA launched Titan Xp and is about to launch GeForce GTX 1030
- Based on their traditional upgrade cycle we should expect Volta by the end of the year or early 2018, but NVIDIA changed plans
- Market situation in Q1-2017 was bad, graphics and other hardware sales in decline, price war, meager profits, sales not increasing the way they want to (vicious circle)
- According to the latest news, NVIDIA plans to release GeForce 20 series in advance, it is now expected to be released in the third quarter of this year
- GeForce 20 series product prices, market positioning will be replanned
- By launching sooner than expected they will be able to increase prices of single cards and increase profits

VK-Z output is blanked now on my rig as mentioned on the frontpage by an other user.

I see two possible explanations:

1/ the vkz.exe has been deleted by your antivirus

2/ vkz.exe is there but is not able to update the vkz.txt file. In that case, try to start GPU Caps Viewer with admin rights and let me know.
