This is the hottest rumor that I've read about AMD's upcoming Radeon RX Vega graphics card, so I'll preface it with a this is a hot rumor and could be totally #fakenews so take it with a salt factory in your possession.
The latest rumor names the three different Radeon RX Vega graphics cards: RX Vega Nova, RX Vega Eclipse, and RX Vega Core. Radeon RX Vega Nova will be the GTX 1080 Ti competitor priced at $599, while the RX Vega Eclipse will handle the GTX 1080 at $499. AMD will reportedly price its Radeon RX Vega Core at $399, and will be capable of GTX 1070/1080 performance.
Remember that this is just a rumor, from a site that is providing its own sources from "very reliable sources within AMD's headquarters", which I'm very doubtful of. Anyway, the naming scheme is what I'm looking at - and if Nova, Eclipse and Core are what AMD use for their Radeon RX Vega family - I'm happy with that.
Our world exclusive last week was that AMD will only have 16,000 or so Radeon RX Vega graphics cards at launch, because HBM2 is still hard and expensive to make, which will limit supply for the first few months post-launch.
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.
