Watch AMD Radeon ProRender 2.0 Render Mercedes-AMG F1 Car!

The 2020 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix marked the end of the 2020 Formula One season, and the first year of the AMD partnership with the Mercedes-AMG Petronas Formula One Team.

To showcase that relationship, AMD worked with the team, and The Pixelary to create a series of 3D renders of the Mercedes-AMG F1 W11 EQ Performance car.

When the new Radeon ProRender 2.0 was released, they rendered them again using the new Radeon RX 6900 XT, and discovered that it cut their rendering time by half!

Mike Pan of The Pixelary explained how much faster the new combination proved to be :

In some tests performed by AMD, when using the “Full” Radeon ProRender 2.0 render quality mode with the AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT graphics card that supports hardware ray tracing, the image above rendered in 516 sec, compared to 1065 sec when rendered with the AMD Radeon VII graphics card that does not support hardware ray tracing.

That is up to a 2.1x reduction in render time [3], which is quite an improvement! On top of that, Radeon ProRender 2.0 also has improved multi-GPU scaling so if we were able to render the same image with two Radeon RX 6900 XT’s, the render times would improve even more.

AMD 7nm Vega Presentation + Demo + First Look!

One of the biggest revelations at the AMD Computex 2018 press conference is how well along AMD is with their 7nm efforts. Everything appears to be chugging along as planned. AMD not only shared new details about the 7nm Vega GPU, they also showed off an actual sample!

 

The 7nm Vega Revealed!

Let’s start with this presentation on the 7nm Vega by David Wang, Senior Vice-President of Engineering at the Radeon Technologies Group. Gilbert Leung then demonstrated the performance of the 7nm Vega GPU, which has 32 GB of HBM2 memory, running Cinema4D R19 with Radeon ProRender.

Here are the key points from his presentation :

  • The AMD graphics roadmap from 2017 has not changed. The AMD Vega architecture will get a 7nm die shrink this year, before an architectural change with AMD Navi in 2019.
  • The 7nm die shrink will double power efficiency, and increase performance by 1.35X.
  • The first 7nm Vega GPU will be used in their Radeon Instinct Vega 7nm accelerator, just like how the first Vega GPUs were used in their first generation Radeon Instinct accelerators.

  • In addition to the 7nm die shrink, the Radeon Instinct Vega 7nm accelerator will feature the AMD Infinity Fabric interconnect for better multi GPU performance.
  • The Radeon Instinct Vega 7nm accelerator will also support hardware virtualisation for better security and performance in virtualised environments.

  • The Radeon Instinct Vega 7nm accelerator will come with new deep learning operations, that will not only help accelerate training and inference, but also blockchain applications.
  • The 7nm Vega GPU is sampling right now, and will launch in the second half of 2018 as the Radeon Instinct Vega 7nm accelerator.
