As AMD’s Vega had shown quite a powerful lead in GPU production, it is still not considered by some to possibly beat Nvidia’s GTX 1070. However, a leaked score from 3DMark contradicts the expectation from the upcoming debut of the latest AMD Radeon RX Vega.
According to Game Debate, leaked specs from Linux users have been released regarding the specs of the to-be-announced AMD Radeon RX Vega. The GPU was mentioned to have its speed doubled to that of its previous AMD Radeon RX 480. A high-speed second generation HBM2 memory was also mentioned to be sported by the upcoming RX Vega.
With that said, it was shared as well that the AMD Radeon RX Vega would be built in 14nm Vega 10 XT architecture, with 4 Shader Engines and 4096 Stream Processors. Aside from that, it was also expected that it would be donned with 8GB HBM2 on a 2048-Bit memory interface along with 256 Texture Mapping Units (TMUs) and 64 Render Output Units (ROPs).
Furthermore, the leaked 3DMark results showed AMD Radeon RX Vega to have a dynamic 12.5 TFLOPS performance. Digital Trends then reported that the alleged leaked had shown the card from Vega to rival the GTX 1070 performance due to a comparison of its performance with AMD Ryzen 7 1800X CPU. However, the alleged GPU compared to the AMD Ryzen isn’t confirmed to be the AMD Radeon RX Vega but could be a different AMD Vega card instead.
Nonetheless, the card believed to be the AMD Radeon RX Vega was identified to have 8GB of HBM2 memory and a clock speed of 1,200MHz. The card said to have the Vega device ID (687F: C1) was then mentioned to achieve an overall score of 5,950 and a graphics score of 5,721. The result made tech enthusiasts conclude that the achieved score of the unnamed Vega in the TimeSpy trial from 3DMark rivals that of GTX 1070’s result by Guru3D.
