AMD are rumoured to be shipping Vega silicon to their AIB partners this week

 

According to Hardware Battle, AMD will be shipping Vega silicon to AIB partners later this week, allowing them to create their own Vega powered GPUs for a release sometime in August.

At this time it is rumoured that there will be two Vega variants at launch, though the exact configurations of both of these GPUs are unknown. At this time two Vega variants are known to be making their way into the Apple iMac Pro later this year, a version with 56CUs and a version with Vega’s full 64 CUs, giving each GPU 3584 stream processors and 4096 stream processors respectively.  

Right now AMD states that Vega will release at SIGGRAPH 2017, which will be taking place between July 30th and August 3rd, leaving a very narrow window for AMD to make their “late July” release window. At this time it is unknown whether or not Vega will have a reference only launch or if they will also be releasing AIB-made non-reference variants at the same time.
