The latest Linux Patch reveals upcoming AMD Vega's detailed specifications. There was a new Direct Rendering Manager (DRM) update for Linux pushed out, with AMD sliding in some major AMD Vega feature support into the open source OS.  As per the leaked specifications, the AMD Vega has almost double the specs the AMD Radeon RX 480 currently offers, as well as the presence of high-speed second generation HBM2 memory.

While coming to the core count of the card, Vega 10 will sport 64 next generation compute units and each of them contains 64 GCN stream processors. As per the Linux Patch, a total of 4096 next generation GCN stream processors which are divided into four divisions and each makes up a single shader engine, according to Racing Junky.

Every shader engine of the total 1024 have two Asynchronous Compute Units, one renders back end and 4 texture blocks. Each renders back end is built of 16 render output units for 64 ROPs in total, while each texture block has 16 texture mapping unit for 256 TMUs in total. Additionally, 8 independent work threads are simultaneously supported by AMD Vega 10.

AMD Vega will be built on the 14nm Vega 10 XT architecture, with 4 Shader Engines and 4096 Stream Processors. Along with that, AMD Vega will have 256 Texture Mapping Units (TMUs) and 64 Render Output Units (ROPs) as well as 8GB HBM2 on a 2048-Bit memory interface. The Linux leaks further suggest it can provide a staggering 12.5 TFLOPS performance, as reported by Game-Debate.

A lot of AMD's money is being plowed into R&D and marketing for upcoming products, such as AMD Vega. Earlier this week, alleged benchmark results from AMD Radeon RX Vega cropped up in 3D Mark Time Spy 1.0. However, it's worth noting that these may be from a different variant of the AMD Vega card entirely, an early unoptimized version of RX Vega, or perhaps not even Vega at all.
