The Radeon RXs based on the Vega 10 graphics core have been officially confirmed and are expected to hit the market in June (professional version) and July (version for general consumption ), but what has happened to the cheaper versions based on AMD Radeon RX Vega 11?
That is a good question. According to the latest information we have been able to see graphic cards based on the AMD Radeon RX Vega 11 core will not reach the market until the end of the year, although it is said that they may end up being delayed in early 2018.
In case someone has lost and does not know exactly what position would occupy the graphic solutions based on this nucleus, remember that in theory we talk about the successors of Polaris, which means that they would cover the range from 100 to 300 euros, currently occupied For the Radeon RX 460, Radeon RX 550-560, Radeon RX 470-570 and Radeon RX 480-580.
With respect to AMD Radeon RX Vega 10, it is expected to be used on at least two different graphics cards. The first would be the new AMD range top and will feature 4,096 shaders, 256 texture units, 64 raster units, 2,048-bit buses and up to 16 GB of HBM2.
The second would see a considerable cut that would reduce performance but would be more economical. This version is expected to add a total of 3,584 shaders, 224 textured units, 64 raster units, 2,048-bit buses and 8 GB of HBM2.
It is possible that AMD can launch a third variant with the graphic core Vega 10, although in that case it is most likely to maintain the base specifications and simply reduce the memory to 4 GB of HBM2. In the end, we would say the release date of AMD Radeon RX with Vega 11 has been delayed, still not confirm the exact date.
