    Over at CES AMD has been showing a thing or two gaming wise, the DOOM 4K demos for example. These all have been run on a VEGA10 graphics card, a photo now has surfaced....

    That is one longass board. Why are the power connectors under the cover?

    I really hope it will be on part with performance of 1080, and then most importantly cheaper then it. Hopefully that will result in Nvidia finally doing something about those prices.

    I guess people might try to estimate power draw etc. of an engineering sample and they don't want that happening.

    It's an engineering sample. So don't take note of the size.
    If you noticed there's a special USB port used for real-time analysis for their software engineers.

    @ malitze - Yup. Spot on.
    The hidden bits are for secrecy. AMD don't want to reveal to much now do they :)

    The photos are taken from this :
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y8tDaPLHxiE

    1) yes pcb is longer, due to the fact it is engineering sample pcb, with USB connector on the back ( this will not been on the final version, it is for monitor and debug the gpu. ) ( yes, all ES have it. )

    2) connectors are hidden, for the exact same reason. ( non representative of the final product ).

    I really hope it comes the size of the Fury X..need a card suitable for mini-itx case.

    Engineerind Sample and this card is for Pros.

    Dont exepct every leaked card photos are for gamers.Gamers dont need 1TB Nand flash (remember Radeon Pro SSG).

    Because on "under finalisation" PCB they use large power range to test the GPU

    Most Maxwell had 3 X PCIe 8pin wich is not representative of the final product of course ...

    imagine if it was 4 under the cache... it would be the bashing of the century
    or imagine it was none... then someone in green might make an equivalent just the same week than Vega launch... bad idea too.

    better hide while it is not finish ;) isn't it?

    You mean Pro gamers? This card was used to run Doom at 4k.

    I love how even after Hilbert tried so hard to make it clear what these images are of and why it looks the way it does, this was the second reply.

    Wat.

    Engineering motherboard - Linus talks about it in one of the videos.

    It probably has debug hardware on the system, and I would bet that a lot of that hardware does nothing and it's there just to confuse. Although the "Cache Controller" system on Vega could imply that we could see GPUs with mixed HBM/DDR configurations.

    What a nice debuggable engineering sample. So, they do not have a final version ready to be shown?

    The source link in the article goes to a video that explains like 90% of the questions being asked here.

    The tape is to cover the connectors presumably because the power delivery is not final (this is linus's explanation as well). Most likely because it has more than 1-8pin for testing (you'd probably want the ability to add additional power on an engineering sample) and when angry anti-amd people see 2, 8pins they'd lose their minds. Either way reddit PSU specialists figured out that it only has 1, 8 pin plugged in so it's using <=225w while running the Doom demo.

    The extra board with the USB-3 connector is for AMD engineers to monitor the board. Raja seems excited about it - said all the engineering samples being used internally by AMD have little extra board. They can pull monitoring data directly from the GPU with zero overhead.

    The motherboard is bare because it's a Ryzen sample engineering board - also mentioned in the video.

    You guys should probably just watch the source video:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y8tDaPLHxiE

    No, according to Raja the clockspeeds aren't finalized and most of the estimates put the final product at 3-4 months away. I think in one of the videos from CES Raja says they got the first sample back 2-3 weeks before the New Horizon demo.
