Clarice Simmons of AMD blogs on the announcement from NAB with Adobe.
Today at the National Association of Broadcasters tradeshow (NAB), AMD announced a collaboration with Adobe to deliver OpenCL™ powered hardware-accelerated for the first time on the Microsoft Windows platform with the next version of Adobe® Premiere® Pro. This is a true demonstration of how AMD enables partner ecosystems with cross-platform open standards and empowers them to amplify experiences for creative users everywhere. What’s more, Adobe’s support for OpenCL™ means that the leading video production and editing tools are optimized to take full advantage of a wider range of hardware – namely, AMD’s APUs and GPUs – bringing the power to create to more users and more PC form factors everywhere. Take a minute to think about that. The next version of Adobe® Premiere® Pro, accelerated by OpenCL™, will efficiently harness the compute power of AMD APU’s and graphics products to do real-time editing. In addition, it will be up to 4.3X faster exports from a source format with effects to a preferred final destination format for quick and easy distribution and publishing*.
Fudo details AMD's upcoming Bonaire GPU, of which the first coming is the HD 7790.
According to various leaked details including the post over at Hardware.info, the Bonaire GPU should feature 896 stream processors. Unfortunately, there are still no details regarding the precise clock frequencies, but according to AMD, the chips should be 10 percent slower than the HD 7850, which is in line with what we heard before. Partners might not be allowed to do factory overclocked version in order not to cannibalize HD 7850 sales.
Tweaktown has details on AMD's upcoming Radeon HD 7790 GPU.
The Radeon HD 7790 looks to skip the "Pitcairn" and "Cape Verde" silicons, moving directly to an entirely new ASIC codenamed "Bonaire". The first SKU to be built on this silicon will be the Radeon HD 7790, which should feature 896 stream processors, and will perform at around 10% slowly than the HD 7850. This should definitely take some of the lime light away from the GTX 650 Ti, and if AMD work on the price, they could move a lot of that lime light away.
