AMD might be on the precipice of releasing Radeon RX Vega, but we're now hearing about a slew of Radeon Vega products - from Vega 10 through to Vega 20. We've heard about some of these cards before, but now we have much more details on them.
The Euroasian Economic Commission (EEC) is a regulatory body that is like the FCC in the US, with any and all products needing to be certified before they can be released into the market. Our friends at VideoCardz were alerted to these new details which have emerged on Reddit.
Vega 20 with up to 32GB HBM2
This is a beast... Vega 20 with a whopping 32GB of HBM2, now imagine a few of those alongside Ryzen ThreadRipper 1950X. Vega 20 rocks four HBM2 stacks, providing up to 32GB of HBM2. This won't be a consumer card, with EEC noting that this is a GL variant, so expect a Radeon Pro or new Radeon Instinct accelerator.
Vega 10 XTX/XT/XL: What We Want
These are the cards that will be the GTX 1070 and above competitors, with the Vega 10 XTX rocking a liquid cooler. We're sure this will be a reference card, with AIB partners opting for air coolers. The XTX also has a higher TDP, similar to the differences between Radeon Vega Frontier and Radeon Vega Frontier Liquid Edition.
Vega 11/12: Cut Down Variants
AMD won't be launching enthusiast class Radeon RX Vega graphics cards, with a cut down Radeon RX Vega expected using the Vega 11 GPU. This is a mid-range card that could compete against the likes of the GeForce GTX 1060 and newer GeForce GTX 1060 with 9Gbps of GDDR5X.
Not Long Now
We are only days away from the official announcement of Radeon RX Vega, so expect a mountain of news when it happens. It's going to be thick and fast amongst all of the excitement surrounding the hype of AMD's new Ryzen ThreadRipper, which not only brings AMD back to the HEDT game, but it has walked right past Intel and bashed their shoulder - looking back and throwing shade.
Radeon RX Vega is expected to be unveiled sometime next week during SIGGRAPH 2017 in LA. I'm on the ground here for SIGGRAPH, so press F5 at least 50 times per day for RX Vega news.
