An AMD Vega GPU has been pictured at CES 2017, confirming that the GPU has two HBM memory stacks and a die size of over 500mm² (around 520-540mm²).
 
This makes AMD’s Vega 10 GPU similar in size to AMD’s older R9 Fury X GPU, which was 596mm² in size and significantly larger than Polaris 10 which was 232mm² in size. We can see below that this GPU has two HBM2 memory stacks, which gives this GPU a maximum memory capacity of 16GB. 
 
With two stacks of HBM2 memory, Vega 10 will have 512GB/s of memory bandwidth, which is larger than Nvidia’s GDDR5X powered Titan X Pascal.

With AMD’s recent Vega reveal they announced that Vega will feature increased GPU clock speeds when compared to Polaris and increased performance per clock, which should make this GPU significantly more powerful than any previous AMD GPU. 

Right now we do not know when AMD plans on releasing Vega to the market, though we can almost be certain that it will come to market before the summer of 2017.
