7 AMD Vega GPU IDs Found In The Latest Linux Drivers, 7 Polaris 12 GPU IDs Also Found

With each passing day the launch of AMD Vega comes closer and closer. As users are excited about the upcoming next gen GPU from AMD, it seems that the company is hard at work preparing for the launch of the new Vega cards. 7 AMD Vega GPU IDs have been found in the latest release of Linux drivers.

This means that AMD is already pushing out drivers that will support AMD Vega GPUs ahead of launch which is something great.

In the past AMD was not effective at providing software support for their products and we all know that there is little that hardware can do without proper software support.

We know that there will be an AMD Radeon RX Vega GPU coming out at launch and we also know that there will be a Vega instinct GPU as well and a Radeon Pro GPU for professionals so what about the rest of the lot?

AMD Vega

It could be possible that we will be getting more than one AMD Vega GPU for the high-end gaming consumer. At least that is what I hope for. There is no confirmation regarding how many GPUs will be coming out so do take this information with a grain of salt.

The following are the AMD Vega GPU IDs that have been found in the latest Linux driver update:

{0x1002, 0x6860, PCI_ANY_ID, PCI_ANY_ID, 0, 0, CHIP_VEGA10},
{0x1002, 0x6861, PCI_ANY_ID, PCI_ANY_ID, 0, 0, CHIP_VEGA10},
{0x1002, 0x6862, PCI_ANY_ID, PCI_ANY_ID, 0, 0, CHIP_VEGA10},
{0x1002, 0x6863, PCI_ANY_ID, PCI_ANY_ID, 0, 0, CHIP_VEGA10},
{0x1002, 0x6867, PCI_ANY_ID, PCI_ANY_ID, 0, 0, CHIP_VEGA10},
{0x1002, 0x686c, PCI_ANY_ID, PCI_ANY_ID, 0, 0, CHIP_VEGA10},
{0x1002, 0x687f, PCI_ANY_ID, PCI_ANY_ID, 0, 0, CHIP_VEGA10},

Another thing that is interesting that 7 Polaris 12 GPU IDs were also found. We only know about the AMD RX 550 coming out that will be based on Polaris 12 and even that GPU has not been confirmed yet. As we get closer to the official announcement I am sure that we will find out exactly what AMD will have to offer.

Let us know what you think about AMD Vega 10 and AMD Polaris 12.
