AMD patented: paving the way for multiple graphics cards

The development in the computer world has increased competition in the market. Since computer hardware has improved twice every 18 months, we can say that this competition will continue. As such, companies are speeding up their hands to develop new technologies. The recently received patent by AMD may indicate the future of Radeon graphics cards with RDNA architecture.

The American video card maker also stated that the design will solve the problematic structure.

AMD receives a new patent showing the future of RDNA architecture

The Red team, which introduced the RDNA 2 architecture with Radeon RX 6000 series graphics cards, received a new patent on December 31, which would change the architecture. According to AMD, using dual graphics cards in a computer is inefficient in many ways because it is difficult to maintain the balance between the cards and the system. Additionally, synchronizing memory contents between multiple graphics cards is said to be complex and expensive to design.

The AMD-obtained patent for the RDNA architecture shows that it is possible to avoid such problems by implementing “high bandwidth passive crosslinks”. According to AMD, the first graphics card is connected directly to the processor. Other graphics cards in the system connect through a passive cross-link to the graphics card attached to the processor. This way, the caches on the graphics cards can be linked together.

If more than one graphics card can be used efficiently, it will open up very powerful hardware, especially on consoles. While it is not known exactly on which architecture AMD will use this design, it is predicted to be RDNA 3+.
