AMD for the first time is placing a solid-state drive in a new graphics card in an effort to squeeze every ounce of horsepower out of GPUs for better virtual reality and gaming experiences.
The idea is simple: As file sizes get larger, more memory and storage are needed for GPUs to quickly process and deliver graphics. The Radeon Pro Solid State Graphics (SSG) card will have a 1TB SSD, which can be used as storage or as a supplement to on-board volatile memory.
AMD’s graphics cards top out at 32GB of memory, which limits the processing of large amounts of data. The SSD will add a terabyte of memory, allowing larger chunks of data to be lined up for processing on the GPU. It could also be used to store processed graphics or video for delivery to screens.
