There have been a few leaks on AMD's upcoming Radeon RX Vega graphics card, and now we're seeing the 687F:C1 device ID once again, with some details on its HBM2 speeds and GPU clocks.
First off, I've been reporting for a while now that there will be a family of Radeon RX Vega graphics cards, with a new Vega 10 prototype being used and spotted on 3DMark's Fire Strike database. The card in question had its Vega 10 GPU clocked at 1200MHz, while its 8GB of HBM2 was clocked at 700MHz.
The Radeon RX Vega prototype was benchmarked with AMD's Ryzen 7 1800X processor, but how was the result of its run in Fire Strike?
Again, we're looking at less than GeForce GTX 1070 performance - but there are a few factors here: prototype hardware, unoptimized drivers, reference card. But, that's OK - it'll get a little faster before release, and this will be the GTX 1070 competitor in RX Vega form.
I think we'll see overclocked custom Radeon RX Vega graphics cards, at least in this form, at up to 1500MHz. What will be interesting, is the price and the power consumption.
AMD Radeon RX Vega Line Up (My List)
AMD will have up to 7 different Radeon RX Vega graphics cards, as it needs to hit 5 different price points and products from NVIDIA from the GeForce GTX 1070 right up to the GTX 1080 Ti, and even the new TITAN Xp.
- AMD Radeon RX Vega (GTX 1070) - 4/8GB HBM2, cut down Vega 11 GPU
- AMD Radeon RX Vega (GTX 1080) - 4GB HBM2, cut down Vega 10 GPU
- AMD Radeon RX Vega (GTX 1080 11Gbps) - 8GB HBM2, cut down Vega 10 GPU (slightly higher clocks)
- AMD Radeon RX Vega (GTX 1080 Ti) - 8GB HBM2, full Vega 10 GPU
- AMD Radeon RX Vega (TITAN Xp) - 16GB HBM2, dual full Vega 10 GPUs
