AMD releases #nerdporn at its finest, with a close up shot of the Vega GPU die

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.
