AMD Vega 10 GPU Launching Later This Year, Aimed at Professional Graphics Market
The latest from the AMD rumor mill is that the company’s next generation Vega 10 GPU could launch at this year’s Supercomputer Show in November. These won’t be the enthusiast-grade GPUs but products aimed at the professional market.
The report comes from Fudzilla which claims that the Vega 10 GPU will come to the professional platforms first, with launch scheduled for later this year. The high-end GPU will boast 16GB of HBM2 that will offer solution for both the server and professional market. Rumor has it that there will also be a cut-down variant with less amount of HBM2 memory.
Based on the 14nm GFX9 architecture, te AMD Vega 10 will feature 64 compute units, and 24 TFLOPs of floating point performance. The HBM2 memory will be clocked at 512 GB/s while the TDP is expected to be around 225 watts.
Vega 10 GPU Specs
- Process: 14nm FinFET
- Stream Processors: 4096
- Clock Speed: 1465 MHz
- Memory: 16Gb HBM2
- Performance: 12 TFLOPs
- TDP: 225W
Keep in mind that this will be a limited launch while the GPUs in volume will be shipped in early 2017.
As per AMD’s GPU roadmap, the Vega 10 for enthusiast market will launch in 1H 2017. These will be high performance GPUs that will rival Nvidia’s Pascal based GTX 1080 and GTX 1070 graphics cards.
