AMD Radeon RX Vega 64 GPUs spotted in liquid and air cooled versions ahead of official launch
The first pictures of AMD's Radeon RX Vega 64 cards have surfaced ahead of the Siggraph 2017 event scheduled to start from July 30 in Los Angeles. AMD will launch the Vega lineup in two variants — the Radeon RX Vega 64 and the Radeon RX Vega 56. The pictures are of the Vega 64 variant and show the Limited Edition and the Liquid Edition GPUs. Both the cards feature Vega 10 GPUs with 64 compute units and 4096 stream processors.
Earlier this month, we reported that the prosumer version of RX Vega, the Vega Frontier Edition (FE), is optimized more towards pro apps than games. According to AMD, the consumer versions of Vega should feature increased clock speeds to provide a better gaming experience. The RX Vega 64 Limited Edition features an elegant cooler design and an illuminated Radeon "R" square in the corner along with the Vega logo in the front. The Liquid Edition ships with a 120mm radiator and features liquid cooling and therefore, should be able to offer higher clock speeds than the air cooled edition. Both cards have premium looks with a brushed silver texturing and feature dual 8-pin power connectors.
The Vega GPU features the same number of stream processors (4096) as the previous generation Fiji GPUs but has increased clock speeds coupled with next generation HBM2 memory for enhanced gaming and 3D graphics performance. Watch this space as we continue to reveal more details of the RX Vega cards as they become official.
