The GPUs which is found built-in the Apple iMac Prom Vega 56 and Vega 64 have been individual by an AMD-provided driver update for Linux.  The AMD Vega cards are being able to use double as much data in both registers as the last cards, 32 bit of accuracy not being needed. The collected data was gathered from the latest flagship graphic chipset's drivers for Linux's Direct Rendering Manager.

According to Apple Insider, AMD Vega Pro 56 is prepared with 56 to compute units with 3584 stream processors and 8BG of HBM2 RAM thrusting over 400GB per second of data. While single-precision (FP32) computation are about 11 tflop which is equal to the GTX 1080 Ti, half-precision 16-bit calculations (FP16) like that used for image and graphic processing and artificial intelligence.

AMD Vega Pro 64 has 64 compute units with 4096 stream processors and 16GB of HBM2 RAM but the bandwidth has not been unveiled yet. It is known to have FP32 single precision calculations at 13 tflops and with FP16 at 25 tflops.

A new set of AMD Vega powered cards were prepared extensively known in association with AMD Vega Pro 56 and Vega Pro 64 chipsets. The Radeon RX Vega graphics card has some specification upon itself and it is still not made clear if macOS will be having drivers for either card, as reported by tech.blorge.

The pre-orders for AMD RX Vega Frontier Edition card have started at $1200 for the air-cooled version and $1800 for the water-cooled variants, but the genuineness of these prices is yet to be known. The graphics card is scheduled for June 27 and is intended for workstations with the same market segment as the Apple iMac Pro.

More details related to the price, the official launch and about the marketing information is said to be made at SIGGRAPH trade show in July. AMD Radeon RX Vega is also rumored to be launched at the same event.
