Radeon Pro SSG Packs 1TB Of SSD Storage On The Graphics Card
The Radeon Pro SSG is their first graphics card that has an onboard M.2 SSD. The 1TB of onboard storage is intended to supplement the high-performance video memory traditionally found on graphics cards. Having this immense amount of storage that can be quickly accessed by the GPU can help in areas of video encoding/decoding, VR, rendering of large scenes, and a lot in the scientific fields or anything else dealing with huge data-sets.
The GPU for the Radeon Pro SSG is, of course, Polaris based. The SSD storage is connected to the GPU via a dedicated PCI Express bus; it won't be as fast as dedicated vRAM, but still should be much better than transferring to/from a local disk off the graphics card. AMD will be selling developer kits of the Radeon Pro Solid State Graphics soon while it won't go into full production until next year.
