AMD will release the consumer/gaming version of its Vega architecture at the end of this month and according to Videocardz, there will be three versions available. These variants are: AMD Radeon RX Vega XTX, RX Vega XT and RX Vega XL.
As Videocardz reported, the AMD Radeon RX Vega XTX will be a water-cooled graphics card with 375W of Thermal Board Power, whereas the AMD Radeon RX Vega XT will be a air-cooled version with 285W of Thermal Board Power. Both of these cards will feature 4096 stream processors and will come equipped with 8GB of HBM2 memory. Clock frequencies have not been confirmed yet, however we expect the XTX to be higher clocked (thanks to its water-cooling solution).
On the other hand, the AMD Radeon RX Vega XL will feature less stream processors (3584), and will be custom-only variant with 285W of Thermal Board Power. As Videocardz noted, this graphics card will feature a cut-down Vega, so expect it to perform slower than the other variants (even when overclocked to similar frequencies).
While this line-up sounds possible, we strongly suggest taking it with a grain of salt as AMD has not confirmed anything yet.
Stay tuned for more!

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved – and still does – the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
