Apr 15, 2017 10:20 AM EDT


A new teaser video of Limited Edition AMD Vega has just been leaked online on Chinese sources. The latest leaked video says features High-End Vega 10, 8GB HBM2 and Liquid Cooled Graphics Card.

A few Weeks back images from the same video were released, but this time the whole video have been leaked out. The latest leaked teaser video of AMD Vega was shared to the press at an event in APAC region. AMD on Reddit confirms the video.

The latest leaked teaser video not only showcases the AMD Vega, but it also gives information for the Limited Edition models as well. However, release date has not been leaked so it is expected that these cards will be available soon by AMD.

Furthermore, as the leaked teaser video suggests, this High-end piece of AMD Vega will be available in a unique packaging design. The packaging will include a number of other things as well. It will come equipped with L.E.Ds glowing beneath the R logo representing the Radeon brand. This video displays just three lines during its length, "It's Got a Brain, It's Got a Soul, It's Almost Human".

According to leaked teaser video the AMD Vega graphics card will be using the full blown Vega 10 GPU and up to 8 GB HBM2 VRAM will feature an AIO liquid cooler. Similar to the Fury X, the card will be benefited from a heatsink that utilizes liquid cooling for better thermal performance. The AMD Vega card will boast a unique silver and red color scheme with a GPU tachometer that displays the load on the card. There are also small switches on the cut out located at the backplate, which can be configured manually to change color of the tachometer which is set to red by default.

As noted by Videocardz, AMD Vega is said to come out in the first half of 2017, with a die size of over 500mm2. Earlier it was speculated that the new AMD Vega will only be available with only 8GB of HBM2 VRAM. But, now AMD has said that they will be offering the cards with various memory configurations. This would allow the AIBs to change the memory die stacks and the total number of stacks on Vega's GPU.

Videocardz further claims that the graphics chip of AMD Vega will be utilizing latest 14nm GFX9 core architecture, which will be based on the Next Compute Design. Vega will also have 64 Compute Units (4096 Stream Processors).

According to WccFtech, the AMD Vega card will come in a dual slot design and will sport a range of display connectors to power up. The upcoming card is powered by what seems to be 8 + 6 pin connector configuration, which is the same as what we saw on the engineering boards from AMD's CES 2017 event.

There's a lot more that we can expect to learn about AMD Vega before it launches in a few months. The card is currently expected to launch in May of 2017 that is before 2H of 2017 and aligns with AMD's plans.
