It appears that the reference model of Radeon RX Vega has been leaked.

Again, we don’t know which model this is, but we might be looking at Radeon RX Vega with full Vega 10 GPU. As far as I know, cut-down Vega will only be released by AIBs.
So how do we know it’s not Polaris? The board number you can see above the PCIe interface is the exact same number you can find on AMD Radeon Vega Frontier. This is the same board, just adopted for RX series. It’s Vega-based card for sure.
They only had this card for few hours, but they promised exclusive RX Vega FreeSync vs GTX 1080 Ti G-Sync comparison to be published later. It’s worth noting that AMD asked him to compare it with GTX 1080 non-Ti:
Just a little tease here as to what is coming this week. RX Vega FreeSync vs. GTX 1080 Ti G-Sync Blind Gaming test video being edited now. All done at my house, with gamers with a couple hundred years of twitch gaming experience. All system UEFI and OS set up by me personally. […] AMD wanted me to use a 1080. […]
AMD hand delivered this card to my house on Saturday morning, and took it with them Saturday evening. That all said, this card was an engineering sample but I was specifically told that it was representative of retail product. So basically a “reference” card built outside of mass production.
We don’t know what happened to the card from leaked teaser from Chinese event, but it might just be one of the variants of Radeon RX Vega.
