AMD Vega reveal is around the corner and we are already getting reports about the upcoming AMD Vega products, AMD Vega 10, Vega 11, Vega 12 and Vega 20. These have been confirmed by the Eurasian Economic Commission which is a body that certifies electronics before they can be released into the market. This body is similar to the US FCC.
AMD Vega 10 has 2 stacks of HBM2 that allows the GPU to have 16 GB of HBM2 memory. Vega 20 on the other hand, will feature 4 stacks and hence the GPUs that are based on Vega 20 will feature up to 32 GB of VRAM. This could be used for professional purposes as 32 GB is over kill for gaming. At least right now.
Eurasian Economic Commission has confirmed Vega 20 for Radeon Pro and Instinct series. This does make sense. Keeping in mind how expensive HBM2 is to manufacture, having 4 stacks in a consumer GPU would be very expensive indeed.
Vega 11 is rumored to replace Polaris 11 and the same could be said about Vega 12 and Polaris 12. We can expect to see mid-range Vega based GPUs in the future. There is also a mention of a FirePro GPU so I can speculate that it will also be based on Vega 11. You should take this information with a grain of salt though.
Vega 10 has been mentioned in the listing and it has been confirmed that the AMD Vega XTX will indeed be a liquid cooled GPU while the other versions, the XT and the Xl will be air cooled. The XTX also has a higher TDP as compared to the other variants. The XT, as well as the XL, will be available to AIBs and OEMs.
There is little that we know about the pricing and availability of these GPUs but considering the reveal is on the 30th at least the AMD Vega 10 GPUs can be expected to come out in August.
Let us know what you think about the upcoming AMD Vega 10 GPUs and whether or not you are interested in buying one.
