RX Vega 64 Liquid Cooled Edition.
RX Vega—AMD’s long awaited follow up to the two-year-old Fury and Fury X high-performance graphics cards—launches on August 14 in two core versions: the $499 Radeon RX Vega 64, and the $399 Radeon RX Vega 56 (UK prices TBC).
A limited edition version of RX Vega 64, which features a slick aluminium shroud, costs $599 as part of a bundle that includes discounts on a Freesync monitor, X370 motherboard, and free games.
A watercooled version of RX Vega 64, dubbed Radeon RX Vega 64 Liquid Cooled Edition, also comes in a similar bundle pack priced at $699.
According to those in attendance at Siggraph, where AMD made its RX Vega announcements, much of the focus was on the value proposition of RX Vega bundles and features like Freesync, rather than all out performance.
Anandtech has been told Vega 64 will “trade blows” with Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 1080, which launched way back in May of 2016.
The launch of Vega Frontier Edition (a production-focused graphics card) in June hinted at such levels of performance—RX Vega 64 and RX Vega 56 are based on the same Vega 10 GPU and architecture.
