So there was a leak of this Vega Linux Driver and in that driver there was some text documents and some settings there. Basically it shows that Vega will have 64 complete units with 64 Shader Engines giving Vega with a massive 4096 Stream Processors.
Also in this leak driver it shows that the GPU is set to 1.5 ghz. We are hoping that there is some space to overclock there. Vega will be a 12.5 TFLOPS beast which is huge. Putting perspective GTX 1080 TI is 11.3 TFLOPS, the new Titan XP is a 12 TFLOPS.
It has to be said that TFLOPS doesn’t mean much in terms of rendering the most advance games out there. But Vega is pretty good at it when it comes to the most advance games. Also when a graphic card has a 8GB of memory, HBM2 and 12.5 TFLOPS of compute power, combining those things it will be a massive graphic card for a high-end users which also means AMD is going to give their competitors a very tough time.
If all the leaks are true up to this point we are looking at multiple Vega GPU’s to compete with the GTX 1070, GTX 1080, GTX 1080 Ti. They are also going after the Titan line as well. We are hoping that AMD shakes up the market with pricing like they did with the Ryzen.
Meanwhile AMD hasn’t announced the release date for Vega yet but it is expected to be launched at Computex this May. So far that’s all the leaks we know, we’ll keep you guys updated as soon as we know something.
