AMD Announces Release Date for Upcoming Vega GPUs And More

01 Août 2017

Today, the company launches what might be its most aggressive play for the hearts of PC gamers with a brand new line of graphics cards. The Radeon Black Pack with Radeon RX Vega 64 Air Cooled will cost $599 and come in September.

The Radeon RX Vega 56 includes the 56 Compute Units, 3584 stream processors, 8GB of HBM2 RAM for storage objective.

The Radeon WX9100 is a workstation graphics card, meaning the card has been designed from the ground up in delivering performance that excels in even the most demanding media and entertainment tasks.

Images of the AMD Radeon RX Vega leaked out just a few days ago and sure enough the rumors were true.

The starting Vega model is the $399 RX Vega 56, which features 56 compute units to power your high-end gaming experiences.

The air-cooled Radeon RX Vega 64 will be priced at $499 (around £450, although United Kingdom prices are yet to be confirmed), while a Liquid Cooled Edition will be available at the premium price of $699 (around £550).

As expected there are three AMD RX Vega cards coming at launch, though the earlier XL, XT and XTX nomenclature looks like it's been reserved for the different Vega 10 GPUs they have at their hearts. The RX Vega 56 and RX Vega 64 are priced in the same ballpark as Nvidia's GTX 1070 ($379) and GTX 1080 ($499), respectively, and from the limited information we have at this point, it appears that the latter card is created to match the GTX 1080's performance. Indeed, if money weren't a factor, most people would go for an Intel Core i7 processor and a high-end Nvidia GTX graphics card.

The cheapest in the series, the RX Vega 56 boasts of the same 8GB of HBM2 RAM but 56 compute units but has a lower bandwidth of 410 GBps. Additionally, according to the internal sources, the novel Vega GPUs will apparently run at the base speed of 1500 MHz (may increase). The company didn't reveal a specific release date, but with the gaming-class Vega cards dropping on August 14 and the Frontier Edition Vega cards already available, we don't expect a long wait for the AMD Radeon Pro Software update. Peak single- and half-precision compute performance rises to 13.7 TFLOPS and 27.5 TFLOPS respectively with a TDP of 345W.

High bandwidth cache composed of 8GB of leading-edge HBM2 or High bandwidth Memory2, memory. The liquid cooled model has a base frequency of 1406MHz and boost frequency of 1677MHz. For those wanting a standard Vega card, it's a tempting deal as it's only $100 more, but it'll set you back $699 if you fancy a the Vega 64 Liquid Cooled card. This reduced price tag also means that you don't get the Limited Edition GPU, instead, you get the Radeon RX Vega 56 version.

Each pack also provides $100-off select Ryzen 7 1800X and 370X motherboard combos.

Will you be buying an RX Radeon Vega? GeForce GTX 1080 contains the 78 fps on the top, and the minimum frame rate is about 45 fps.
