The silicon Vega 20 is listed in the AMD drivers for Linux

The AMD Vega 20 is a revision of the current Vega 10 core under a more advanced manufacturing process, which may be a chip manufactured at 12 nm, 10 nm or even 7 nm. About six new IDs have appeared in AMD’s Open Source drivers, pointing to new products based on this silicon.

On March 28th, AMD’s Open Source driver code was used for the references to these products based on Vega 20. These new silicon systems would be a multi-chip system, consisting of the GPU itself and two 10 nm HBM2 memory stacks, all linked by an interposer, just as AMD has been doing in Fiji.

The shift to a more advanced manufacturing process would allow Vega to offer higher energy efficiency and superior performance than that seen in the first generation of this graphics architecture. Previously we had already talked about the arrival of a revision of Vega at 7 nm, but only for the professional sector so it is not clear if it will also reach gaming.

Whatever the case, we still have to wait a long time to get the first official news about a new generation of products based on the Vega architecture.
