The next generation GPU, #Amd Radeon RX #Vega is one of the most awaited devices of 2017. Gamers are desperately waiting for the GPU to launch soon as it is reported to sport the cutting-edge technology. As per reports, the graphic card might be revealed soon but the exact date is not confirmed by the company. According to Forbes, Asus and AMD might be producing the #Dual RX Vega Monster together. AMD Radeon RX Vega will be the biggest competitor to the Nvidia's GeForce GTX 1080. The said Nvidia’s GPU falls in the high-end GPU category.

The rumors regarding the launch of the GPU

Earlier it was rumored that all new AMD Radeon RX Vega might be released by the end of the July at SIGGRAPH 2017.

While It was also rumored that AMD's partners will release the versions of the card during August, which means that the reference RX Vega cards have to be launched at the beginning of the August. The latest speculations suggest that the GPU could be released by the end of the year. The previous designs of GPU left many chunks of silicon idle and thus leading to wastage. However, the new NCU design will allow the GPU to work on smaller operations and thus won't leave as many parts idle, thus avoiding wastage.

The speculations of the GPU

The AMD RX Vega cards will be completely different from GPU to memory architecture. They will appear as standalone cards, which will be different from the rest of the Polaris-based RX series. This will be a 16GB card, sporting second-gen high bandwidth memory (HBM2), which will give it a high level of video memory performance.

It is expected to have a 2,048-bit memory bus with a bandwidth around the 512GB/s mark.

It will have high bandwidth cache and high bandwidth controller. These two will reduce a lot of restrictions related to the rendering of data. The new High bandwidth cache and high bandwidth controller will allow GPU to stream in rendering data from a PC's system memory or even SSD. It is believed that the Vega architecture can scale up to a maximum of 521TB. AMD is calling Vega 'the world's most scalable GPU memory architecture'.

It will be interesting to see the upcoming high-end GPU battle when the said device will launch. AMD and Nvidia both will try to capture the GPU market. At this moment, AMD has detailed three Vega 10 based cards, each with at least 300W TDP figures. The rumors can be confirmed only after its launch. Stay tuned for more news, updates, and rumors on GPU and tech.
