AMD Radeon RX Vega 32, RX Vega 28 rumored to be coming

Vega 11 GPU will power up to 13 new graphics cards from AMD

AMD just unleashed their new Radeon Software Crimson ReLive Edition 17.9.2 drivers which add 2-way multi-GPU support to Radeon RX Vega graphics cards, but now the latest rumor has the company preparing 13 new graphics card on their Vega 11 GPU.


The Vega 11-based graphics cards should replace AMD's current-gen Radeon RX 400 and Radeon RX 500 series cards, which are based on the Polaris 10 and Polaris 20 GPUs. The naming system that AMD is reportedly going to use makes sense, as it continues the way that they launched RX Vega: using the compute unit count (in this case 32 and 28 CUs) to name the card.

This is where Radeon RX Vega 32 and Radeon RX Vega 28 nomenclatures come from, with the Vega 11 XT expected to rock 2048 stream processors, with 4GB of HBM2 and a 1024-bit memory bus. Vega 11 Pro should feature 1792 stream processors, with the same 4GB HBM2 on a 1024-bit memory bus.

Radeon RX Vega 32 and RX Vega 28 should fight NVIDIA's mid-range GeForce GTX 1060, and I'm sure the GTX 1060 9Gbps.

We'll report on the new RX Vega graphics cards as news breaks.
