Leaked AMD Roadmap Reveals Company May Release Three Vega Graphics Cards In 2017

Leaked information online reveals an internal GPU roadmap at AMD, describing three Vega graphics card processors that will come on the market in the year 2017.

AMD's Upcoming Vega GPUs

According to Videocardz.com, besides the Vega 10 and Vega 11 graphics card processors that were already rumored before, AMD has also a plan to launch the Vega 20 GPU in 2017. The same specialized website claims that Vega 10 will not be launch in October, as rumored before, but rather in the first quarter of 2017.

The Vega 10 GPU seems to be a new revision of GCN based on a 14-nm process, according to the leaked information. The GPU will come with 64 compute units. If this is proved to be true, then the Vega 10 would have the same 4096 shader processors as the Fury X's Fiji processor.

According to Tech Report, the Vega 10 graphics card processor will come with a potential 512 GB/sec of memory bandwidth, using 16 GB of HBM2 memory. The total board power of the Vega 10 GPU is expected to be around 225 W. In 16-bit mode, it is expected that Vega 10 will perform up to 24 TFLOPs.

The online leaked AMD roadmap also details products after Vega 10. The Vega 11 will supposedly be replacing the Radeon RX 480's Polaris 10 chip at some point next year. And perhaps the existence of a "Vega 20" processor is the most surprising fact in this rumor.

The Vega 20 chip is rumored to come with 4,096 shader processors, PCIe 4.0 support and 32 GB of HBM2 memory. The total board power of the Vega 20 GPU will be around 150W. According to Digital Trends, AMD's Vega 20 graphics card processor will be based on GFX9 cores manufactured under GlobalFoundries' 7nm process technology. This would AMD to pack more cores into the upcoming Vega 20 GPU.
