Vega FE pcb analysis:

am i to assume the memory is on the other side of the card?? and im still waiting to see what 3rd party card manfacturer makes a bombshell of a rip-butt card out of either the 56 or the 64 card. the asus r.o.g. card was rather a disappointment. or AMD themselves will release a hot rod version of the reference card. caude nvidia is kicking amd's butt. the titan-x just smokes anything amd has. i really wish amd would come out with a card that repeats the radeon 9700 pro day. when ati just dropped a bomb on nvidia. as a AMD fan,,im disappointed with there cards the last few years. they need a card to beat the 1080ti,,the titan-x,,and the 1070. i cant keep up with all the cards nvidia makes,,i just know us AMD guys are getting our arses handed to us on a silver platter. and it's getting rather sad to be amd guy. so i hope when they refresh the lineup,,someone builds just a butt whoopin beast of a card. till then,,my x2900 will have to do.

Memory is on the die package under the GPU heat-spreader. Not likely to see a refresh whoop a 1080Ti, this architecture is far too compute oriented to take the gaming crown away from NVIDIA.

it figures. id just wish AMD would get back into the game again. nvidia is just got so many cards on the market now,,us AMD guys dont have much to choose from in the gaming department right now. so my X2900 is just going to have to do.

The "gpu package" that you see is the gpu die (big square) and two smaller squares that are the memory (HBM) modules, the dies are exposed, there's no over the die heatsink like a CPU or the old fermi gpu's.
