The main problem of professional graphics cards used by special effects studios is the current limit of 32 GB of frame buffer if this amount of memory would drooling any player is really fast insufficient for heavy work tasks, for example real-time preview of visual effects movies 8K. The studios are forced to temporarily reduce the quality of special effects to make the preview.
With two integrated connectors M.2, the Radeon Pro SSG therefore provides an original solution to this problem: cards with 1 TB or more of flash memory, connected directly to the GPU, become theoretically possible. Flash memory only works of course not in the same way that the HBM memory, physically Interposer but the performance gain is indeed real. AMD shows such as the Radeon Pro SSG can display video 8K at 96 frames per second while the FirePro strongest so far was limited to "only" 17 fps with the same definition.
AMD is unfortunately not very talkative about this Radeon Pro SSG. Impossible to know for example the amount of onboard memory HBM, or the exact GPU used (known as Polaris 10). The development kit for the Radeon Pro SSG is currently offered at a price of 9999 dollars. The availability of mass is however expected in 2017 to an undisclosed price.
We imagine that these cards will be prohibitively expensive for individuals but this technological evolution can not let the geek lurking in you insensitive. Will we see consumer graphics cards with M.2-SSD in the future? We'll know soon enough.
