AMD packs 1TB SSD into a GPU for better VR and gaming

Agam Shah | July 26, 2016
AMD's Radeon Pro SSG is an experiment that may lead to SSDs becoming a common feature in GPUs

SSDs used as cache or temporary storage is already available in PCs. Newer Windows PCs have cordoned-off, low-capacity SSDs to quickly load commonly used programs, fast boot PCs, or store replicas of the OS if a hard drive goes bad. SSDs are also used as cache in servers to process data-intensive applications.

The Radeon Pro SSG has a single graphics processor based on Fiji architecture, also used in the company's dual-GPU Radeon Pro Duo. AMD didn't share more details, but with two GPUs, the Radeon Pro Duo delivers 16 teraflops of single-precision performance. The Radeon Pro SSG is a test product, and the specifications will certainly change in the final product that ships next year.

The Radeon Pro SSG will be shown in action at the SIGGRAPH conference in Anaheim, California, this week.
