    Phoronix: Vega 20 GPU Support & VCN Clock/Power Gating Sent In For Linux 4.18

    Last week was the main AMDGPU features update for Linux 4.18 via DRM-Next while today a secondary pull request of further feature work has been submitted...

    Edit: According to bridgman , we should disregard the following info.

    Their published (i.e. not leaked) roadmap says they'll be sampling 7 nm Vega by the end of 2018. I know we don't have definitive proof that Vega 20 is this chip, but you could do better than to say "not much is known".

    AMD clarified its remarks by saying that this product will not be aimed at gamers, but will be a version of Vega specifically for machine learning, and they expect only to be sampling select customers with early silicon at the time.
    Based on the LLVM patches you've previously reported, this definitely sounds like Vega 20.

    This slide above lays most of it out: the design will be an optimized version of Vega, which means it might not look much like a Vega GPU as we know it. AMD is planning that this product is used both for training and inference, with a focus on new deep learning operations – specifically aimed at HPC clusters.

        I appreciate the correction. I'll amend my post.
