High-End AMD Radeon RX Vega Graphics Cards Launched

AMD Radeon RX Vega 64 Limited Edition

AMD said the Radeon Packs and Radeon RX Vega graphics card would be available starting August 14. As for the 64 card, gamers can expect 1406MHz base clock and 484GB/s of memory bandwidth for the water-cooled model. It also needs a single 8-pin PCIe power connector with a typical board power of 150W, at least according to pictures and information provided by Smallformfactor.net site, which had a chance to snap a few pictures.

AMD is launching the Radeon RX Vega 56 and the Radeon RX Vega 64, costing $399 and $499 respectively. Finally, we have the Radeon RX Vega 56 which is the scaled down version of the Vega 64, with 56 CUs enabled and a base clock of 1156MHz (boost clock, 1471MHz).

With specs out of the way, let's get to the pricing: the RX Vega 64 can be had for US$499 while its younger brother, the RX Vega 56 can be had for US$399.

All the three RX Vega 64 and 56 GPUs are slated to hit streets by August itself. AMD Radeon RX Vega family comprises of three cards, all of which are based on the Vega 10 GPU. There's also the card's slick physical design, which is coated in sturdy aluminum and comes in both air-cooled and liquid-cooled variations to stay cool under pressure no matter your setup.

The new cards are meant to rival Nvidia's current GTX 1080 and 1070 products powered by the Pascal chip, as well as Nvidia's upcoming next generation line up powered by its Volta chip.

Meanwhile, the top-end RX Vega 64 too comes in two versions, one being air-cooled while another comes with a water-cooling solution. Vega 10 leverages HBM2 memory for its HBC, which is connected via a 2048-bit interface, as reported by Tech Radar. For reference, the GTX 1080 has 9 TFLOPs and the 1080 Ti has 11.3 TFLOPs.

There is also a Radeon RX Vega 64 Liquid Cooled Edition which has an integrated closed-loop liquid cooler with a 120mm radiator, but is otherwise no different from its namesake.

Liquid-Cooled RX Vega version - 350 watts.

AMD will release updates to three of its now available Radeon ProRender plug-ins and add-ins for leading 3D content creation tools. These will include discounts for a Ryzen processor, motherboard, and an RX Vega graphics card, in configurations to suit your pocket.

As there's a lot of new technology behind the RX Vega graphics cards, which we hope to test very shortly, AMD feels it necessary to explain the tech behind them, which makes them so desirable and future-proofed for VR. Unfortunately the Holocube is not going to feature in any planned Vega graphics card bundles, says AMD.
