AMD could be preparing to ship Vega to AIB partners

Coming in late July or early in August

According to the latest rumors, AMD could be preparing to ship the only two Vega GPUs to its AIB partners which means that these graphics cards could be available by the end of July or early in August.

According to a report from site, AMD is gearing up to ship Vega GPUs, the only two that it has, usually known as the Vega 10 XT and Vega 10 Pro, to its AIB partners. According to the same report, AIB partners will be allowed to come up with a non-reference version shortly after the launch of the reference one and this could be happening in late July or early August. 

This also sounds a bit strange as we are quite sure that AMD will first be pushing reference versions, so late July, when AMD is officially launching the consumer Vega graphics card, sounds a bit too optimistic. 

As you know, there are only two known Vega GPUs around, which were also spotted in Apple's new iMac Pro systems - the Vega 10 XT, which has full 64 CUs with 4096 Stream Processors and the cut down Vega 10 Pro GPU, which has 56 CUs and 3584 Stream Processors. The Vega 10 Pro will be paired up with 8GB of HBM2 memory while the Vega 10 XT could come with 16GB of HBM2.

AMD's first Vega-based graphics card, the Radeon Vega Frontier Edition, is scheduled to be available in late June.

Hopefully, we will be able to dig out more information from AIB partners before the official launch at Siggraph 2017, scheduled to kick off on July 30th.
