AMD Radeon RX Vega Sporting 1.2GHz Core Clock Appeared

AMD Radeon RX Vega is a much-anticipated card in 2017 by AMD. The latest leak reveals about the specs of the card, which comes from what appears to be a prototype Radeon RX Vega card flexing its muscles in Futuremark's 3DMark Fire Strike benchmark.

The device ID is listed as 687F: C1 which points to an early Vega 10 prototype, the same one AMD brought to the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) earlier this year and used in a demo showing Doom running at 4K at Ultra settings. The AMD Radeon RX Vega ripped over 60 frames per second in that demo, sometimes even hitting 70 fps, as reported by Hot Hardware.

According to 3DMark's listing, this AMD Radeon RX Vega sports 8GB of high bandwidth memory, otherwise known as HBM2, running at 700MHz with the GPU clocked at 1,200MHz. During the tech at 3DMark, the graphics score of the AMD Radeon RX Vega is 17,801. That is about 1,400 points higher than a Radeon R9 Fury X. Radeon RX Vega is also roughly equivalent to NVIDIA's Maxwell-based GeForce Titan X, and a couple hundred points shy of a GeForce GTX 1070.

One of the more recent leaks came from a Linux driver and broke down the specs of AMD Radeon RX Vega. If the leaked information is to be believed then AMD Vega will feature 64 next generation compute units, each with 64 GCN stream processors. That gives it 4,096 next generation GCN stream processors divided into four divisions, each of that comprises a shader engine.

To break things down, each 1,024 stream processor shader engine exerts two asynchronous compute units, a render back-end, and four texture blocks. Inside each of those, there are 16 textures mapping units, giving the graphics card a total of 256 TMUs. For the release date, AMD Radeon RX Vega is expected to be released before the June end.
