AMD Polaris and Vega GPU Compute Unit Counts Surface

AMD's upcoming "Polaris" and "Vega" GPU architectures will appear to take advantage of performance/watt gains to keep their stream processor counts low, and sizes quite small. This is according to VideoCardz who has spotted a curious-looking CompuBench entry. If a Graphics Core Next (GCN) compute unit (CU) of the "Polaris" architecture consists of 64 stream processors, then AMD's Polaris 11 silicon (Baffin) could feature over 1024 stream processors across 16 CUs. AMD Polaris 10 (Ellesmere) would feature 2304 stream processors spread across 36 CUs, and finally Vega 10 would feature 4096 stream processors across 64 CUs.
