AMD showed off its insane Project Quantum last year, packing a custom SFF chassis with high-end hardware in the form of an Intel CPU and dual Fiji GPU. It looks like the vendor is ready for another go at the idea, but this time sticking with its own Zen CPU and a next-gen Vega GPU with HBM 2. That means it’ll be a while before we see a finalized product, but it should be well worth the wait.
AMD cites the following reasons for wanting to go with 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”.
It will be very interesting to see what AMD comes up with, as Project Quantum can be positioned as a high-end machine targeted at the VR community.
