AMD has just registered a new trademark which confirms their upcoming 7nm Radeon Vega GPUs. The trademark was registered around two weeks ago which is very recent which makes it seem like the new graphics cards would be arriving really soon to the market.

AMD Registers New Radeon Vega II Trademark - Official Logo For The 7nm Radeon Vega Lineup Teased

Now before you start thinking about gaming graphics cards, it should be pointed out that the AMD Radeon Vega family includes different categories. There's Radeon RX for the gaming cards, Radeon Pro for the workstation cards and Radeon Instinct for the HPC/Datacenter cards. All of these cards are part of the Radeon Vega family.

Till now, AMD has only officially talked about HPC/Datacenter parts under the 7nm Radeon Vega family. The family would feature the Radeon Instinct MI60 as the flagship variant which replaces the older Radeon Instinct MI25 which utilized the 14nm Radeon Vega architecture.

It is likely that AMD can introduce Radeon Pro variants based on the 7nm Vega core architecture but gaming is currently out of the question because, given the pricing of the new GPUs, it is highly unlikely AMD would want to bring Vega to the gaming market. Also, Navi, AMD's next-generation GPUs will be arriving on the desktop platform later next year so it's likely AMD would want to keep Vega II just for the professional and data center markets.

Coming back to the logo, we can see the original Radeon Vega logo which is shaped like a "V" and this time, it comes with two stripes which indicate the second iteration of Radeon Vega on the 7nm process node. AMD has previously stated that their first 7nm graphics cards would sample in Q4 2018 with availability planned for early 2019. We will definitely have more news coming in from CES in a few weeks from AMD regarding their Radeon Vega II graphics family.
