It is not IGP .Vega is dead for desktop, this is probably an IGP. We are going to see smaller Navi soon, but 7nm is still quite expensive and that is why AMD are taking their time. With their Ryzen 3000 series and RX 5700 series they can use that to improve the process and get better yields, making it more profitable to create smaller chips.
It is the same Vega 12 that for year goes on sale with MacBook Pros. It has 20 CUs, 4 Shader Engines, 32 ROPs, 4 GB HBM2. So there it is everything you need to know about it.I'm confused by the marketing implications of a new Vega, of all things, dGPU? Did these get lost in a time-capsule somewhere? Or are these some sort of Apple-specific, or semi-custom, design?
Edit: OTOH, if this is an HBM2 design, and is going to retail for $120-150, it might be worth it for mining rigs. Just a thought.
Edit2: Unless they gimp it with only 4GB of VRAM max. That would be a sorry little card.
Edit3: I hope that it is a new enough design, to have HDMI2.1 ports. Combined with the speedy HBM2 memory, even if it is limited to 4GB VRAM, that would make a heck of an 8K QUHD 2D card.
Maybe an OEM thing?It is not IGP .
MacBook Pro full Vega 12 has 1.2 GHz, 192 GB/s memory bus, 45W TDP.
This has 1.5 GHz, and god only knows how much bandwidth available. So the TDP will be higher, that the one from MBP. Also, this is desktop platform, tested by Asus. So here is another clue.
It is still only a possibility. But a lot falls down into the line telling that this actually might be desktop dGPU.
