Orders of the Radeon Pro Vega 56 and Radeon Pro Vega 64 have been ramped up due to the upcoming Apple iMac. According to sources 2.5D and 3D packaging technologies are going to be used in order to supply the Radeon Pro Vega 56 and Radeon Pro Vega 64 graphics cards that will power the Apple iMac.

We know that the Radeon Pro Vega 56 GPU and Radeon Pro Vega 64 have been in short supply in the market and this could be one of the reasons why that is the case. Analysts predicted that this shortage will continue till October but it is almost the end of the month and we are still not getting any new stock.

AMD will be busy supplying the graphics cards according to Apple requirements and that could affect the market overall as well. With supply already being short and attention being diverted towards Apple, it is possible that your wait for getting an AMD Radeon Pro Vega 56 and Radeon Pro Vega 64 will not end anytime soon.

On the bright side, we have heard from sources that AIB partners have got their hands on the Vega GPUs so we could see custom AMD Vega GPUs some time soon. According to supply chain sources:

The new iMac series adopt GPUs supplied by AMD, with the super workstation-class 27-inch iMac Pro equipped with Radeon Pro Vega 56 GPU and 8GB HBM2 memory or Radeon Pro Vega 64 and 16GB HBM2 memory. The high-end GPUs are packaged using 2.5D technology while the general-spec GPUs use flip-chip packaging process. Siliconware Precision Industries (SPIL) handle the packaging for the iMac GPUs, with testing support from King Yuan Electronics.
