For some of us, this news has been a long time coming, but at last AMD has launched its RX Vega GPUs, targeting gamers instead of the professional market the Vega Frontier Edition aims for. There are three RX Vegas being offered: the RX Vega56; RX Vega64; and RX Vega64 Liquid Cooled Edition. They will be available on August 14 with the RX Vega56 having a suggested price of $399 while the air-cooled RX Vega64 will have a price of $499. For a limited time these GPUs will come with Prey and Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, but if you want even more there are also the Radeon Packs. These packs include discounts on select Ryzen 7 and motherboard combos ($100 off) and on a 34 in Ultra WQHD curved Samsung monitor with Freesync ($200 off).
The RX Vega GPUs have several new features, including 8 GB of HBM2, the High Bandwidth Cache Controller, a new geometry engine for significantly greater throughput-per-clock, an improved pixel engine, and Rapid Packed Math for improved compute performance. In fact RX Vega can reach up to 13.7 TFLOPs of peak compute performance.
Hopefully we will not have to wait long before seeing reviews for RX Vega.
