Key details regarding the upcoming Vega10 GPU from AMD have been uncovered thanks to a Linkedin profile of a senior AMD employee.
The profile reveals that “Greenland” will be a leading chip of the IP v9.0 generation and include a total of 4096 shader processors. Another major highlight of the next-gen GPU will be HBM2 memory. The latest roadmap from AMD had recently confirmed that the Polaris GPU will not utilize HBM2 memory, reportedly due to the high prices of HBM2 DRAM chips.
Sadly, cards based on the Vega10 architecture aren’t likely to be released this year, so if you’re hoping for a card from AMD to top the Radeon R9 Fury X or the Radeon Pro Duo this year, you are going to be disappointed.
