AMD Radeon Vega, their upcoming graphic chips for 2017 has been doing its rounds in the rumor mill for some time now due to increasing popularity of the new product from AMD. While the majority of people are waiting to check out real-world benchmarks of the graphic chips, a lot of impatient gamers are still finding joy by opting for Nvidia Pascal chips, the latest generation GPUs from AMD's primary competitor.
As reported earlier, a Radeon Vega prototype card on the test bench has performed excellently in different benchmarks estimating its performance to that of the nearest competitor from Nvidia. For now, the initial reports at least predict the performance of the new cards to match that of the GTX 1070 Pascal graphics card. Details from a report by Hot Hardware revealed the new cards have been listed on 3DMark Fire Strike, a popular visual benchmark indicating its onboard capacity of 8GB in size.
Other key specifics also hint that the new prototype Radeon Vega card seems to be running at clock speeds of 1200mHz with second generation high bandwidth memory, which is, otherwise known as HBM2. The test bench had also included the Ryzen R7 1800x processor managing to display a benchmark score of 14,412 which the report puts it above the existing R9 Fury X from the manufacturer.
Sadly, reports from WCCFtech indicate that AMD will only have less than 20,000 units at the time of launch of their new Radeon Vega graphic cards. Internal sources to TweakTown revealed the information which also claims AMD will only produce 16,000 units in the first few months of its product launch.
The market demand for Radeon Vega chips is increasing day by day due to the internet continuously asking potential new buyers to put off their purchase plans by another couple of months due to the rumors about AMD's new product. However, the likelihood of people opting for AMD rather than Nvidia still remains unchanged due to the way AMD plans to price their new product.
