Yes, we do have proper specs, it's a repurposed professional card, the 7nm Radeon Instinct MI50, but with a 1750 Mhz Boost and 1800 Mhz Peak clock and 1/8 FP64 performance (between an original Titan and Titan Black, which makes it an interesting compute card, but fortunately not good enough for non gamers to snatch them all up). The basic design is the same as Vega 64 and 56, so the ROP count is still at 64. There was some talk on the CES floor about it being 128, hence why initially some outlets reported it as having 128 ROPs, but AMD has already clarified that it's the same 64 ROPs as before.
The core count sits at 3840, so it's a bit harvested compared to the full chip. But as we know by now, the 4096 core design with 64 ROPs is bottlenecked, has been since the Fury X, so for gaming less cores active and higher clocks probably makes the most sense anyway.
Memory is 16 GB of HBM2 running at 2 Ghz effective on a 4096-bit bus for a massive 1 TB/s bandwidth. Technically speaking this is the first PCIe 4.0 chip, but AMD did not enable that part for the desktop Radeon VII, only the Instinct parts are PCIe 4.0. PCIe 3.0 should be more than enough for this card anyway.
TDP is not 100% certain, but it's probably the same 295w of Vega 64.
