AMD confirmed at GDC that the upcoming Vega GPUs would be branded as AMD Radeon RX Vega. Now SiSoft benchmarks have been found and they show a device labeled 687F:C3. This particular device has 8GB, 2048-bit memory configuration. This means that the device has 2 HBM2 stacks, 1 GB each and 1024-bit each.
This leak could potentially confirm that AMD Radeon RX Vega has 4096 stream processors.
As of right now, we do not know if the 687F:C3 device is indeed a top of the line AMD Radeon RX Vega GPU or not. We have yet to see a leak regarding a cut-down chip or lower power AMD Vega 11.
AMD Radeon RX Vega will be the high-end GPU from AMD this year and with the RX 500 series coming out soon AMD will have a complete lineup of GPU to offers its fans and customers. This lineup will include GPUs that range from entry-level to enthusiast grade.
The Nvidia GTX 1080 Ti was unveiled recently and we are already getting reviews regarding the GPU. Looking at how it is aimed at the 4k gaming market AMD will have to work really hard to beat the competition or at least compete with it.
Radeon Virtualized Encoding together with LiqudSky technology will enable millions of people to experience the power of Vega through the cloud, much like the Nvidia GeForce Now service. It is debatable how dependable these streaming services are as they do require a very fast internet connection and even then there is no guarantee that the experience will be lag free.
AMD Radeon RX Vega is something that we all are waiting for and there is a lot of hype surrounding the name. AMD has caused a lot of disruption in the CPU market and I can only hope that the company is able to do the same when it comes to the GPU market as well.
