Finally the day has arrived, AMD today at Siggarph officialy announced RX Vega. We were waiting for this day from very long time. AMD today unveiled its Radeon RX Vega family of consumer graphics cards, brought its new “Vega” GPU architecture to the bulk of the market.

There are 3 RX Vega 10 Variants, Fastest Vega is known as ” AMD RX Vega 64 Water Cooled Edition ” and then there is air-cooled edition as well.  We have  cut-down version with the same spec’s just like R9 Fury series if you remember. Its ” Radeon RX VEGA 56” with less stream processors and less GPU clock and obviously less TDP as you can see the chart below.

Radeon RX 56: Starting with the 56. This model has 3584 Stream Processors, 10.5 TFLOPs computing power, 410 GB/s memory bandwidth (so around 800 MHz clock) and a price tag of $399 USD.

Radeon RX 64: AMD Radeon RX Vega 64 comes in three variants. The cheapest one is 499 USD, this card has 4096 Stream Processors, 8GB HBM2 memory and 484 GB/s bandwidth. The TDP is 295W and it will offer up to 12.66 TFLOPs of power.

The fastest Vega is called RX Vega 64 Liquid Cooled Edition. This model has higher TDP (345W), but also higher clocks up to 1677 MHz. This card will cost you 699 USD.

Gamers that buy the RX Vega 64 in a Radeon Pack will receive two free games (that differ by region but are Wolfenstein II and Prey in the US), a $200 discount on a 3440×1440 100 Hz FreeSync display and a $100 discount on a Ryzen CPU + motherboard bundle.

According to the AMD, RX VEGA offers better minimum frames as compared to GTX 1080 GTX 980ti, It makes no sense but we’ve no idea about real world performance. .

AMD is telling us that the GeForce GTX 1080 has 99th % minimum frame rate in the range of 45 to 78 FPS in a range of titles including Ashes, BF1, Hitman, and more. At the same settings, the Radeon RX Vega 64 has a 99th % minimum frame rates in the range of 53 to 76 FPS Based on AMD Testing.

 

Launching 14th August.
