AMD Radeon RX Vega teased, thrashes GTX 1080 Ti

GTX 1080 Ti thrashed by the new Radeon RX Vega in leaked slides

NVIDIA had the crown for a couple of weeks with its impressively fast GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, but it looks like AMD is coming out of thin air with a monster graphics card in their new Radeon RX Vega - thanks to newly leaked docs.




AMD will be offering Radeon RX Vega in three forms: 4GB HBM2, 8GB HBM2, and 16GB of HBM2 - with AMD promising that 4GB of HBM2 will outperform 11GB of GDDR5X - the VRAM found on the GTX 1080 Ti.




Vega has a brain and a soul - with 2x the performance per clock, and 4x the performance per watt of its previous-gen GPU architecture.




But, what does Radeon RX Vega look like? It's super small, with up to 16GB of HBM2 on a 2048-bit memory bus. The Vega GPU is rocking the 14nm LPP process, at up to 1600MHz.




There'll also be a 'Galaxy of GPUs' released - with Rage, Rage X, Rage X Fury, and Rage X2 Fury.


Of course, this is all an April Fool's Day prank - and as I cry tears of joy, excitement, and disappointment - WCCFTech owned April Fool's Day with the Radeon RX Vega post. But now, AMD kinda needs to hit these huge milestones for me to be impressed by Vega, dammit.
