A rumor has allowed us to see AMD Radeon RX Vega 16 GB, AMD’s next top of the charts for the graphics industry, and the information that appears makes some of the most important specifications clear.
It is not clear if this is a Radeon Vega for general consumption (RX Vega) or a solution for the professional sector, so we must keep in mind that both possibilities are open and that the former may be limited to 8 GB configurations of HBM2.
As for the list we find a count of 64 units of computation, which multiplied by 64 shaders leaves a total of 4,096 shaders, a figure that fits perfectly with the above information.
It is also interesting to see that the same sum 16 GB of HBM2, an amount of graphics memory that would be configured in four blocks of 4 GB each. This is important since it would directly affect the bus and the total bandwidth of the AMD Radeon RX Vega 16 GB, since each block would add 1,024 bits which would give us a total of 4,096 bits.
In the case of the Radeon Vega that we saw in previous events equipped with two blocks of 4 GB of HBM2 (8 GB in total) that bus would be of 2,048 bits, which translates into a smaller bandwidth and therefore in a smaller one Gross power.
We should not ignore the frequency of work, as unlike other previous information this listing shows a very good GPU speed, 1,600 MHz. That number hits the leaks we had seen in previous news and they spoke of about 1200 MHz maximum.
We still cannot confirm anything so we have no choice but to wait to see if AMD finally presents AMD Radeon RX Vega 16 GB at its event set for next May 31.
