    These are infrared lamp illuminated, post-processed photos made with Sony NEX-5T camera and Leitz SECOLUX 6x6 microscope, picturing the real-world silicon die with metal lid removed and the copper Integrated Heat Spreader (IHS) sanded off.


    There are quite a lot of die shots of various top-end Radeon GCN chips - as well as Nvidia GPUs, AMD Zen / K6 CPUs, Polaris22 (Kaby Lake G), and some historical 130/150 nm chips from 2000s, like Sun UltraSPARC IV, 3dFX Voodoo, fixed-function ATI Radeon etc.

    Vega 20 (Radeon VII) GCN5



    Vega10 GCN5
