As we reported earlier, AMD is expected to release its much awaited graphics card under Vega 10 GPU architecture, AMD Radeon RX 490 in the first half of 2017. AMD's second GPU architecture, Vega 11, is also reportedly going to be on AMD's marketing section next year, but no specific timeframe has been set.

And according to an exclusive report from VideoCardz, AMD will release two more architectures, one by second half of 2017, and the other could be around the same period though it's most likely serve as AMD's flagship GPU for 2018.

AMD Dual Vega 10

The first one will be called Dual Vega 10. So what's the difference between the original Vega 10 to Dual Vega 10? Aside from being "dual," the Thermal Design Power of Dual Vega 10 is reportedly going to be 300W, compared to 225W for the Single Vega 10.

Other than that, the two GPUs will have the same features of 64 Compute Units, 24TF 16-bit computing power, 14nm GFX9 architecture, 16GB of HBM2 memory with a bandwidth of 512GB/s, and Base (Effective) Clock of 1,200 (1,400) MHz. Dual Vega 10 is reportedly set for release by second half of 2017 It's is still unclear if Dual Vega 10 will coincide with the release of Vega 11.


Now if you think AMD is just going to dominate 2017 with the rumored absence of NVIDIA after the delay of GDDR6 was announced, think again. Here is the big news, the Vega 20. Although reports about Vega 20 GPU graphics card specification are a bit scarce, believes it will have the same 14nm GFX9 architecture.

And if the rumors are true that AMD pushed back the release of Navi 10 and Navi 11 to 2019, then Vega 20 might find its way to the market by 2018. We'll bring you more AMD Vega 10, Vega 11 and Vega 20 updates in the coming weeks.
