We just reported on the first details of AMD's next-gen Vega 10 graphics card, but it seems as though that's the mid-range model, while the higher-end Vega 20 is shaping up to be a damn monster.

AMD's upcoming Vega 20 graphics card will feature 32GB of HBM2 memory with 1TB/sec of memory bandwidth, up from the 16GB of HBM2 with 512GB/sec bandwidth offered on Vega 10. Not only that, but the Vega 20 chip will reportedly support the upcoming PCI-Express 4.0 standard. does note that the details were from AMD's internal server roadmap, so things might change for the consumer market. 32GB of HBM2 would be insanely expensive, so I would dare say these are higher-end cards not meant for the consumer market. Alternatively, maybe we will see these cards in the consumer market, as AMD will be needing to prepare for NVIDIA's next-gen Volta architecture in 2017.
