AMD Radeon Vega GPU specifications leak on the CompuBench database

 
Specifications for an upcoming AMD Radeon Vega GPU have leaked on the CompuBench database, coming with more VRAM than expected and some very high clock speeds. 
 
The specifications of this new GPU closely match what was recently revealed in Linux DRM patches, confirming that the GPU will have 64 compute units and the recently revealed AMD Vega 6864:00 device ID. 


This new GPU is said to come with core clock speeds of 1600MHz, which is expected to be this GPU's boost clock speed, and come with a total of 16GB of HBM2 memory. At this time Vega has only be shown with dual HBM2 memory stacks, which means that this GPU uses two 8GB HBM2 memory stacks unless this configuration has changed.

At this time the RX Vega is expected to ship with only 8GB of HBM2 memory in total, though AMD could have changed this in more recent samples. 

It is expected that this GPU is not the RX Vega but AMD's Radeon Instinct MI25, given how useful additional memory can be for compute applications. AMD's new High Bandwidth Memory Controller will allow Vega to utilise additional system memory as a frame buffer, so further memory will be available to the GPU if required.

This listing shows that Vega offers some huge clock speed improvements over Polaris, with modern flagship RX 580 GPUs coming with clock speeds that are often around 1430MHz, which is a full 170MHz (around 12%) lower than what is seen here.  

At this time this leak cannot be fully verified, though the specifications are not exactly outlandish considering what we already know about HBM2 and AMD's Vega architecture. Let's just hope that AMD's Vega architecture can bring competition back into the high-end GPU marketplace, as right now Nvidia is utterly dominant.

Hopefully shows that Vega will not be hamstrung be slow clocks, only time will tell though. Wishing AMD well with Vega, we need the competition.Quote

We need cheaper prices

1600 is still far off of well over 2ghz.Quote

True but 1500 has been theorised to match the 1080ti in speed. IF that's correct then 'handbrake off' No idea how correct that is but it could be a good sign.Quote

It's likely that Vega will perform better in DX12.

Ugh, so much unknown. One thing I do know is that if this card is $599 as rumour suggests it will be £599+ which prices me out.

Ah well, roll on the 70 series Volta I suppose.Quote

There will likely be the £400 and £500 version. I imagine the £400 card will be above the 1070 in performance, the £500 version will be above the 1080, and the £600 will be just before the 1080Ti in the majority of benchmarks and as you said match it or beat it in specific DX12/Vulkan games that favour AMD.Quote
