Like it was planned to be teased after NVIDIA's huge unveil of their next-gen Volta GPU on their new Tesla V100 graphics card, news appears through recent Linux drivers of a purported dual-GPU based on Radeon RX Vega. The new info points to specific code:
- table->Tliquid1Limit = cpu_to_le16(tdp_table->usTemperatureLimitLiquid1);
- table->Tliquid2Limit = cpu_to_le16(tdp_table->usTemperatureLimitLiquid2);
These codes are new Vega 10 IDs, so we should expect a larger family of Radeon RX Vega graphics cards - with the number 7 floating around in previous reports. The specific code we're looking at here points to a specific PLX chip, which is an ASIC board that splits PCIe lanes to bridge multiple components, like dual GPUs.
There's not much else here, but a dual-GPU Radeon RX Vega is something AMD will need to beat the new Tesla V100 graphics card, that's for sure. A dual-Vega graphics card could also hurt the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti... so we'll have to wait and see.
