While Vega Mobile has already been announced, we know that full fledge Nvidia desktop graphics cards also come in laptops and this is something that AMD might also be working on. We have seen the roadmap for 2017 and it seems that we will not be getting anything new this year from AMD. Nivida, on the other hand, will be introducing some new Volta based graphics cards to beat AMD. AMD RX Vega 64 could be coming to laptops.
While there are no specifications regarding AMD Vega Mobile that have been made official you can expect half of what Vega 10 has to offer, less than 2048 GCN stream processors with a single HBM2 stack. Word has it there the graphics will come with 4 or 8 GB of HBM2 memory.
Scott Wasson, AMD Radeon Technologies Group, talked about the matter at hand and the following is what he had to say about the issue:
“I can’t pre-announce products for our partners. It is possible to take a Vega 10 GPU and put it into a notebook. So we’ll have to see.”
Obviously, spokespersons are not allowed to talk about unreleased products but it is more than possible that AMD RX Vega 64 and 56 desktop graphics cards could be coming to laptops. Wasson said that it is possible and it would be a dumb move for AMD to let this opportunity go.
Remember the AMD Vega Nano that was shown to us for a bit? We have not seen that come to the market yet. It is possible that AMD is working on a highly efficient version that could be placed in a laptop and provide the same performance as the desktop version. This has not been confirmed by AMD so do take this with a grain of salt.
