I just realized, Vega is a turning point for AMD GPU division, they've done something not even ATi has done.
Vega is the first AMD arch since forever where AMD had bigger individual shaders than Nvidia.
Lets take a look at die sizes.
Vega 10 - 530mm2 - Shading Units: 4096
GP102 - 471 mm2 - Shading Units: 3840
Simple math says that Vega is 12.5% bigger than GP102, but only has 6.69% more shaders.
Even going back to Nvidia's G80, I don't remember this ever happening, Nvidia has always had bigger shader arrays than ATi/AMD.
Last Gen GM200, which is Titan Maxwell, only had 3072 at the same die size as FuryX, In fact the whole situation with Fury X and Vega having the same amount of shaders is completely unreal considering Vega has twice the transistor count as Fury X/Fiji
Now the question remains how buffed up are the individual shaders in Vega compared to Fiji? They almost have twice the transistors dedicated to them.
