AMD’s Catalyst software is getting the ‘Vega-6’ codename
Video capture software maker AMD has changed the name of its Catalyst software suite, which includes video editing software for video capture, to Vega-6, the company said.
The software, which is designed to allow users to take advantage of Nvidia’s GPU architecture, is currently available in the Radeon R9 Fury X, Radeon R7 265, and Radeon R5 265 series graphics cards.
“We are continuing to work with the community to improve the experience for those looking to get their video editing in, and we are excited to announce the Vega-8 series will now be called Vega-4,” AMD’s Product Manager for video editing, David Hoberman, wrote on Twitter.
“Vega 4 is the codename for the next generation of our software.”
AMD’s Vega-series graphics cards include two variants of the Radeon RX Vega 64 graphics card and one variant of the RX Vega 56 graphics card.
The Vega 64 cards are based on the Polaris architecture, which was launched in the Vega 20 graphics card in March.
The Radeon RX 560 graphics card was launched earlier this year.
Vega-64, which supports up to 32 GB of graphics memory and up to 16 GB of shared video memory, is designed for a wide range of applications.
Vega Vega-2 and Vega-3 are also available for the Vega family of GPUs, which are based upon the Vega 10 graphics architecture.
Vega GPUs are used in the flagship Radeon R8, R9 and RX series graphics chipsets.
Nvidia released its first graphics card, the GeForce GTX 1080, at the end of May, launching the new version of its graphics API based on Nvidia’s Pascal architecture, the Pascal architecture was also used in AMD’s Radeon R4 and R5 graphics cards at the same time.
The GPU used by AMD’s graphics chips is also known as GK104, the same name as the AMD Polaris GPU.
AMD said it had reached a deal with Nvidia for the development of Vega-based products, but did not say if the agreement would be extended beyond 2019.
AMD also said it has partnered with Intel to offer software and hardware support for Nvidia’s graphics technology.
AMD is working on Vega-specific software and software and graphics solutions, and will also be providing technical support to developers to support their applications.
It also plans to provide software for the Radeon Technologies Group (RTH) graphics products, which include the Radeon Pro Duo and Radeon Pro WX 5100.
AMD has been criticized by some consumers for its reliance on Nvidia hardware.
Nvidia has also recently announced plans to expand its GPU offerings to include graphics chips designed for consumer use, including the Nvidia Quadro K1000 series of GPUs and Nvidia’s Titan X Pascal GPUs.
