AMD’s Vega 20 Appears In Recent Linux Driver Updates

AMD has been making some excellent strides lately. Despite the company facing competition from both sides, on the CPU and GPU end, the company is holding up well.

Recently, AMD’s Vega 20 seems to have made its way into the latest AMD Linux Driver patch that clearly mentions what seems to be the Vega 20. The folks over at Reddit are responsible for these findings and seem to add a bit more chunks of information into the mix. According to VideoCardz, the Vega 20 is supposedly going to be built on a 7nm process. While not finalized, this could be AMD’s evaluation stage where they would be testing out a number of features that could potentially be added to the final card at its release.

Here’s an extract from the ID list obtained from the driver patch.

+ /* Vega 20 */
+ {0x1002, 0x66A0, PCI_ANY_ID, PCI_ANY_ID, 0, 0, CHIP_VEGA20},
+ {0x1002, 0x66A1, PCI_ANY_ID, PCI_ANY_ID, 0, 0, CHIP_VEGA20},
+ {0x1002, 0x66A2, PCI_ANY_ID, PCI_ANY_ID, 0, 0, CHIP_VEGA20},
+ {0x1002, 0x66A3, PCI_ANY_ID, PCI_ANY_ID, 0, 0, CHIP_VEGA20},
+ {0x1002, 0x66A7, PCI_ANY_ID, PCI_ANY_ID, 0, 0, CHIP_VEGA20},
+ {0x1002, 0x66AF, PCI_ANY_ID, PCI_ANY_ID, 0, 0, CHIP_VEGA20},
While AMD’s unveil of these cards seems to be unlikely anytime soon, these cards should start the rumor mill leaking what seems to be a card that’s still under development.
