AMD has unveiled the Radeon RX Vega graphics cards

Radeon Pro WX 9100 workstation graphics card is created to excel in media and entertainment workloads by AMD, delivering up to 12.3 TFLOPS of single precision compute performance.

AMD is launching the Radeon RX Vega 56 and the Radeon RX Vega 64, costing $399 and $499 respectively. The top of the line Radeon RX Vega Liquid Edition can be had only as a bundle called, the Radeon Aqua Pack which will supposedly retail for US$699. Furthermore the power consumption of the new vega graphics cards is actually a lot more than that of the Nvidia's cards so will cost you more in electricity bills in the long run. Crank up your graphics quality and bring out every detail at incredible resolutions with the revolutionary "Vega" architecture. While not as power hungry as the liquid cooled card, the air-cooled RX Vega 64 still requires a considerable 295W of power. The Vega 56 will house and the same 8GB of HBM2 though the memory bandwidth only comes in at 410GBps. "The combination of a Radeon RX Vega graphics card, a lovely FreeSync display, and a high-performance Ryzen CPU and motherboard is everything a gamer needs to enjoy the best possible gaming experience, and with our Radeon Packs, we're delivering all three at a tremendous value".

At the SIGGRAPH industry conference in Los Angeles on Monday, AMD said the new video cards could perform up to 13.7 teraflops, or million million floating point calculations per second. Although there has been a wait of quite a few months, the company anticipates that these releases will put it back on the list of high-end graphics card.


Radeon Red Pack - Featuring the Radeon RX Vega 56, an air-cooled card priced at $499 SEP. The 16-core, 32-thread Ryzen Threadripper 1950X (base clock of 3.4 GHz and boost of 4.0 GHz) will sell for $1,000.

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. Vega means faster-clocked processors and radically overhauled memory subsystems to improve metrics like minimum frame rates and performance hiccups in games. The difference in power is notable, thanks in part to the latter running cooler, but to get hold of one you'll have to grapple with AMD's somewhat freakish Radeon Vega pricing system.

All the three RX Vega 64 and 56 GPUs are slated to hit streets by August itself. Next up is the Radeon RX Vega 64, which is bereft of liquid cooling but features the same number of CUs and ROPs as the Liquid Cooled Edition.
