AMD's vice president and architect Raja Koduri has confirmed via Twitter that the Die Size of the Vega 10 would be 484mm². This has surprised everyone because the Vega 10 was significantly larger in the 14nm process Radeon RX 540 and 470 equipped with the Polaris 10 even larger, as reported by Chinese Site techalook.

However, the good news is that Vega 10 architecture based on the AMD Radeon RX Vega gaming version will be faster than the Frontier Edition card. The game experience will be much higher that will be beneficial to the players it. 

AMD Vega 10 features 256 texture mapping units and 64 next generations Vega compute units arranged in two islets, each housing two compute engines. Each compute engine consists of two distinct compute clusters. Each of those clusters features 512 stream processors and 32 texture mapping units. The chip boasts a total of 4096 stream processors and 256 texture mapping units.

AMD Radeon Vega Frontier Edition card is based on the Vega 10 architecture that everyone was waiting for a long time now, 2 years to be exact. The said GPU comes with 4096 stream processors and the card has a base clock of 1382 MHz and boosts to 1600 MHz. The GPU features 16 GB of HBM2, which is one of the reasons why only a few GPUs have been shipped out, as reported by Segment Next.

 The whole Vega 10 die sits on an interposer and is 2.5D stacked with two HBM2 stacks as said earlier. Every stack can be configured with up to 8 GB of memory for a total of 16 gigabytes as can be found in the AMD Radeon Pro Vega Frontier Edition.
