The AMD Radeon RX Vega Tech Report

AMD Radeon RX Vega – Everything You Need To Know!

During Computex 2017, AMD revealed that they would be formally launching the Radeon RX Vega family of GPUs in SIGGRAPH 2017. Well, it’s official – the AMD Radeon RX Vega is here! To be accurate, there are five Vega models, and they will be sold in special Radeon Packs as well. Confused? Don’t be. Let us break it down for you!

Don’t forget to also check out the following AMD Vega-related articles :

 

The Road To Vega

Several months ago, we showed off an AMD Vega prototype running DOOM on Vulkan at the 4K resolution.

During Computex 2017, Dr. Lisa Su also showed off dual AMD Vega GPUs running Prey at 4K, in an AMD Ryzen Threadripper system!

Now, they are ready for the big time! Let’s kick off with this short official introduction video from AMD!

 

The Five Vega Models

AMD announced three Radeon RX Vega models, but in reality, there are five different variants. Their names are a mouthful, but descriptive.

  • Radeon RX Vega 64 Liquid Cooled Limited Edition – 64 compute units, water-cooled, US$649
  • Radeon RX Vega 64 Liquid Cooled Edition – 64 compute units, water-cooled, US$599
  • Radeon RX Vega 64 Limited Edition – 64 compute units, US$549
  • Radeon RX Vega 64 – 64 compute units, air-cooled, US$499
  • Radeon RX Vega 56 – 56 compute units, US$399

All five cards will be available for purchase starting 14 August 2017.

What’s With The Limited Edition?

As the specifications show, the Limited Edition cards do not offer higher clock speeds, so what’s special about them? Why pay US$50 extra for them? Here’s why…

The Limited Edition cards are AMD’s version of the NVIDIA Founders Edition graphics cards – the pinnacle of graphics card engineering. It features a solid metal shroud with a 240 grit brushed finish. Inside is a 30 mm fan mated to an isothermic vapour chamber.

There is also some bling in the form of an illuminated Vega logo in the middle of the shroud, and a Radeon pixel at the upper right corner.

The AMD Radeon Packs

Although you can buy the Radeon RX Vega as standalone graphics cards, AMD wants you to enjoy the complete “AMD experience”.

Introducing the AMD Radeon Packs – special bundles of a Radeon FreeSync monitor + an AMD Radeon RX Vega graphics card + an AMD Ryzen 7 CPU and motherboard combo + 2 free games!

Right now, the AMD Radeon Packs allow you to save up to US$420 off the complete package – US$200 off a 34″ Samsung CF791 curved ultrawide FreeSync monitor, US$100 off selected AMD Ryzen 7 1800X CPU and 370X motherboard combos; and two games worth US$120 (currently Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus and Prey).

The Radeon Packs will vary with region, but there will be three main Radeon Packs on offer :

  • Radeon Red Pack – with a Radeon RX Vega 56, priced at US$499.
  • Radeon Black Pack – with a Radeon RX Vega 64, priced at US$599.
  • Radeon Aqua Pack – with a Radeon RX Vega 64 Liquid Cooled Edition, priced at US$699.

Here is a closer look at the three components of an AMD Radeon Pack :

  • the 34″ Samsung CF791 curved ultrawide FreeSync monitor

  • two games worth US$120 (currently Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus and Prey).
