AMD Vega 11 is for Raven Ridge, more Vega 56/64 supply is coming

Overclockers UK did a live interview with AMD product manager James Prior. VideoCardz listened to the half-hour chat and learned a couple of interesting tidbits about Vega and Zen 2.

Vega 11 is the graphics part of Raven Ridge APU
First up, we learn that everyone was pretty wrong about Vega 11. It was widely assumed that this was a lower-spec version of the Vega 10 GPU for the discrete video card market. But that is not the case, Prior explained to OCUK that Vega 11 is an integrated graphics solution with 11 Compute Units. So far, we have only seen mobile Raven Ridge APUs with 8 and 10 CUs. Vega 11 will be the flagship integrated graphics product of the Raven Ridge lineup.

Radeon RX 56 and 64 to get more supply
Secondly, Prior revealed more supply of Radeon RX Vega 56 and 64 video cards should hit the market soon. The extra volume will hopefully result in lower prices too. VideoCardz heard AMD is finally supplying Vega GPUs to its board partners, and heard the reference designs will be discontinued once the custom cards hit the market in satisfactory numbers.

AM4 socket stays until 2020
This is old news but Prior once again confirmed that AMD plans to stick with Socket AM4 until 2020. This implies that after a BIOS update, it may be possible to use Zen+ and Zen 2 processors in existing motherboards.

Based on current rumors, it looks like the upcoming Ryzen 2000 series will be based on the Zen+ design. This is basically a die shrink to 12nm with some architectural optimizations. Zen 2 will probably arrive as the Ryzen 3000 series.
