AMD Radeon RX Vega is just some days away from now but the leaks are not stopping rather they are emerging in more quantity. However, the latest listing suggests that there will be three variants of the gaming Vega cards: Radeon RX Vega XTX, the Radeon RX Vega XT, and the Radeon RX Vega XL.

The leak was originally posted on 3DCenter and confirmed by Videocardz later on. Among all three variants, Radeon RX Vega XL will be the weakest of the three variants. Despite making being the Extra Large variant, and will boast a cut-down Vega core with 3584 Stream Processors and a TDP of 285W,  there is a ton of wattage.

The next step up is the AMD Radeon Vega XT, which is a full-fat Vega GPU with 4096 Stream Processors and air cooling.Vega XT will also have a TDP of 285W same as XL variant.

Lastly, the AMD Radeon Vega XTX, which is a water-cooled version has 4096 Stream Processors. However, in this variant, 375W TDP will be there to hold up the liquid cooling system. This power is comparable to a 250W TDP on the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, as reported by Game-Debate.

From the looks of things, every model listed for the AMD Radeon RX Vega will have 8GB HBM2 memory, so there are potentially no 16GB options available at launch. However, 8 GB is plenty good for any graphics card. It is also likely that AMD could be saving a 16GB variant for further down the line, possibly as part of a dual-GPU edition.

As it is already confirmed for the release date AMD is planning to launch its Radeon RX Vega series during the SIGGRAPH event which starts on July 30. So, all the details regarding the gaming  Vega will be confirmed at the same event.
