NVIDIA looks at technology similar to AMD SAM

According to our colleagues at GamersNexus, NVIDIA seems determined to design a technology similar to the one announced by AMD: Smart Access Memory. This acceleration technology was announced at the conference announcing the new Radeon RX 6000 series graphics cards.

AMD Smart Access Memory

In order to benefit from the AMD Smart Access Memory, you will need to design a configuration around an AMD next generation processor, the AMD Ryzen 5000 (Zen3) as well as an AMD Radeon RX 6000 series graphics card (RDNA2). Thanks to the Smart Access Memory function, the data channel between the GPU and CPU can be expanded to use the memory cache of the entire GPU and thus boost performance. AMD’s idea was to introduce this technology as it was launching new processors and graphics cards almost simultaneously.

Another condition for “activating” SAM support will be, in addition to having a latest-generation processor and graphics card, a motherboard with a BIOS with AGESA or higher. In our opinion, motherboards with a B550 or X570 chipset will be compatible.

Finally, AMD announces up to 11% performance in 4K on Forza Motorsport: Horizon 4. In games such as Borderlands 3, Gears of War 5, Hitman 2, and Wolfenstein Young Blood, an increase of 5-6%. In short, gains not to be overlooked. This technology has yet to be tested in independent tests.
