One demonstration has the Vega GPU handling 8K video processing in Adobe Premiere Pro CC 2017. The other focuses on 4K post-processing with Radeon ProRender, which renders high-end graphics.The first Vega video cards are expected this quarter, perhaps in May.
The NAB show is targeted at the TV and film industry, in which 8K is a growing trend. AMD has been wooing the industry to adopt its GPUs.
While computer users are still entrenched in 4K, the 8K resolution is considered about two to three years away. But gamers will be among the first to move to 8K, and Vega should be able to handle it. Dell has already said its 8K monitor works with Polaris-based Radeon WX 7100 GPUs, though the performance isn't optimal.
