"We have two versions of these FinFET GPUs. Both are extremely power efficient," said Koduri. "This is Polaris 10 and that’s Polaris 11. In terms of what we’ve done at the high level, it's our most revolutionary jump in performance so far. We've redesigned many blocks in our cores. We’ve redesigned the main processor, a new geometry processor, a completely new fourth-generation Graphics Core Next with a very high increase in performance."
Aside from Polaris, Koduri also told VentureBeat about AMD's VR ambitions. According to Koduri, current VR implementations (unsurprisingly?) have image quality that is "lower quality than a simple hand mirror... [which] has much better contrast, much better pixel resolution, infinite pixel resolution."
"Our goal, the path we're on, is to get to that mirror-like quality. What the eye can see in a display today is a small fraction of what it can see in the outside world."
