I've just sat down at my desk in the GPU lab here in Australia, after an exhausting but awesome Computex 2017, and one of the first things I see is that AMD has released the die shot for the Vega GPU. STAHP.

The new Vega GPU die shot teases that the new GPU is divided into 8 clusters, each packing 8 Next Generation Compute Units. Each of these new NCUs features 64 stream processors, providing a total of 4096 FP32 cores. The difference between the previous-gen compute units and the new Vega NCU ones is that Vega packs 16-bit processing with doubled throughput.

Isn't it beautiful? Radeon RX Vega launches at SIGGRAPH 2017 which takes place in California between July 30 and August 3.
