Last year AMD unveiled its new Project Quantum concept system last year which consisted of a custom small form factor chassis with high-end hardware in the form of an Intel processor and dual Fiji graphics processors.
The Project Quantum unfortunately in the form that was unveiled last year wasn’t a practical system to mass-produce admitted AMD’s Richard Huddy. However AMD is now reconsidering the specifications of the hardware and is ready to make it more appealing to the mass market.
It is now thought that the Project Quantum system would contain the following core components AMD Zen CPU, and a next-gen Vega GPU with HBM2, and would offer those looking for a ready-made virtual reality or 4K Ultra HD media centre the perfect off-the-shelf system. AMD explains more about the following reasons for developing a custom solution :
– First, an “internal decision to market the Radeon Duo Pro, not as a purely gaming product, but as a professional high performance solution”.
– Second; “The lack of a high performance AMD CPU and Motherboard solution (the original Project Quantum uses an AsRock Motherboard) that could accompany the powerful dual GPU”.
As more details are announce about the new AMD Project Quantum over the coming weeks we will keep you up-to-date as always.
