As the launch nears, we are getting to hear more about the AMD Radeon RX Vega. The detailed specifications of the graphics card have already leaked a number of times, but the latest leak comes from the official source.
AMD has recently submitted the latest Linux graphics driver update and that’s what gave us all the detailed specifications of the Radeon RX Vega. Direct Rendering Manager update was pushed to Linux yesterday and it included the comprehensive Vega feature support to Linux.
This seems to be in line with the expected launch of the AMD Radeon RX Vega by the end of June.
Coming to the core count of the card, Vega 10 will feature 64 next generation compute units and each of them contains 64 GCN stream processors. There are a total of 4096 next generation GCN stream processors that are divided into four divisions and each makes up a single shader engine.
Every sp shader engine of the total 1024 have two Asynchronous Compute Units, one render back end and 4 texture blocks. Each render back end is made up of 16 render output units for 64 ROPs in total. While each texture block has 16 texture mapping unit for 256 TMUs in total. Also, 8 independent work threads are simultaneously supported by Vega 10.
When compared to Polaris 10 Pro, which was seen in the RX 470, RX Vega has double the number of stream processors, double texture mapping units, and double the number of render output units. Polaris 10 XT, the slightly better version of Polaris 10 Pro that powered the RX 480, has half the render output units of Vega 10.
As per the tests conducted earlier, the Vega GPU was able to run Star Wars Battlefront in 4K at 60+ FPS. Certain gaming demos have also proved it to be better than the GTX 1080. Earlier reports have confirmed that the Vega GPU will feature 8GB of HBM2 memory.
