First Details About AMD VEGA10 And VEGA20?

The folks at VideoCardz have posted what they claim are details about AMD's upcoming VEGA10 and VEGA20 GPUS. The info is said to come from a "reliable source" but, as with all leaks and rumors, take them with a grain or two of salt. Thanks to TaintedSquirrel for the heads up.


  • Vega 10 will be released in first quarter of 2017, it has 64 Compute Units and 24TF 16-bit computing power. Vega 10 is based on 14nm GFX9 architecture. It comes with 16GB of HBM2 memory with a bandwidth of 512 GB/s. The TBP is currently expected at around 225W. Meanwhile, dual Vega 10 will be released in second quarter of 2017 and TBP should be around 300W.


  • Now here’s something interesting that we didn’t know yet. Vega20 will use 7nm GFX9 architecture. It will feature 32GB of HBM2 memory with 1 TB/s of bandwidth. TBP is around 150W and it will support PCI-Express 4.0. It will also have 64 Compute Units. So what does GFX9 really mean? It’s an internal codename for architecture, for instance Hawaii was GFX7 and Polaris was GFX8.
