While AMD has been focussing on the mid-range graphics card market this year with Polaris, next year we will see the launch of Vega GPUs, AMD’s next batch of high-end cards to take on the likes of Nvidia’s GTX 1080 and GTX 1070. We haven’t heard much about Vega but this week it looks like the first key specifications leaked for Vega 10, Vega 20, Vega 11 and we even got some claimed details on the Navi architecture.
This leak comes from one of Videocardz’s sources. In a report released today, it was claimed that Vega 10 will be releasing in the first quarter of 2017 (January-March), with 64 Compute Units, 16GB of HBM2 with memory bandwidth of 512GB/s. The chip itself is based on the 14nm process and will have a 225W TDP. Apparently, a dual-GPU version of this card is also being planned for Q2 next year.
Vega 20 is also apparently in the works and will be based on the 7nm process and will feature as much as 32GB of HBM2, running at a TDP of just 150W. This card will also feature 64 Compute Units and support PCIe 4.0, according to the report. Finally, Vega 11 is apparently going to be AMD’s replacement for Polaris 10 next year, but not anything else is known about it outside of that.
As far as Navi goes, the report claims that Navi 10 and Navi 11 GPUs are currently being planned for 2019, which is a year later than initially expected.

KitGuru Says: Do keep in mind that we can’t verify any of this information due to the anonymous nature of the source, so take all of this information with a grain of salt. That said, this all seems like positive news if true, after all, it would be nice to see a new high-end GPU sporting HBM. Are any of you waiting on new GPUs from AMD?
