AMD RX Vega: What Gamers Need to Know

AMD Radeon RX Vega 64 Limited Edition

They include the high-end Radeon RX Vega 64 Liquid Cooled Edition, engineered with 64 compute units to be the most powerful Radeon ever built. 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.

AMD will offer to consumer models based on the Vega architecture: the Radeon RX Vega 64 and the Radeon RX Vega 56. The RX Vega 64 has been priced $499 (air cooled version) and is pitched straight against the Nvidia GTX 1080 while the slightly lower powered RX Vega 56 costs $399 and will compete against the GTX 1070. The RX Vega 64 has been priced at $499. It's nearly as if the 1080Ti is not the card AMD is warring against because NVIDIA sells more cards at that slightly lower tier - the 1080 and the 1070 - but we can't be sure! The AMD Radeon Pro Software Crimson ReLive Edition for Vega-based Radeon Professional Graphics has a bunch of features for professional graphics fans.

Next are the two Radeon RX Vega 64 cards.

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).

Vega will come in a number of different variants including the vega 64 and 56 which will be released later this month.


Of course, these are just benchmarks from one game, but AMD is promising that its Radeon RX Vega graphics cards will deliver blistering performance across a wide variety of DX12 and Vulkan games.

Going by the specs, the Vega 64 can be pegged as an equal to the GTX 1080.

The Radeon Vega GPUs were unveiled ahead of the Siggraph graphics show in Los Angeles, California this week, and will initially feature in a series of four graphics cards. Heck, AMD Windows drivers have really improved over the years too, making it a treat to upgrade when a new version is released.

AMD's HBCC/HBC is engineered to use the HBM2 in a similar manner to a last level GPU cache and some much more detailed examples of how this works needs to be provided by AMD in a more Technical highly detailed whitepaper format. However, AMD did not reveal the complete information regarding the Limited Edition. These are essentially GPU "bundles" which cost $100 more than the card-only pricing, but give you $200 off a 34-inch Samsung ultrawide gaming monitor, $100 off certain Ryzen 7 1800X / 370X motherboard combinations and free copies of Prey and Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus. AMD is betting that these packs will offer an enticing value for prospective buyers and get them locked into AMD's gaming ecosystem.
