AMD has shared some of their future plans for the next generation chipsets for their low cost graphic card solutions designed for engineers or gamers

Although we have not yet been given full access to AMD’s upcoming Vega graphics architecture, what the company has provided is the official branding for its new flagship parts. While we all knew that these graphics cards would be based on the Vega architecture, which supersedes Polaris, we didn’t know that “Vega” would actually find its way into the name of shipping parts.  Upcoming cards will take on the Radeon RX Vega branding instead of, for example, Radeon RX 470. AMD also showed off the Vega logo

Radeon RX Vega graphics cards will begin shipping during the first half of 2017 and are still built on a 14nm FinFET process, like their Polaris predecessors. However, AMD is bringing second generation High Bandwidth Memory (HBM2) to the table along with twice the peak throughput per clock compared to previous generation architecture. The Geometry Pipeline, which is now even more efficient, is also joined by a New Compute Unit and next generation Pixel Engine.
