AMD unveils three Radeon RX Vega gaming cards
The long wait is finally over… well, quite. AMD, known for making high-performance computing, graphics, and visualization technologies, finally made official its Radeon RX Vega gaming cards. The three variants are namely: the Radeon RX Vega 64 Liquid Cooled Edtion, the Radeon RX Vega 64 (w/ air cooling), and the Radeon RX Vega 56.
Here are their detailed specs.
|AMD Radeon RX Vega 64 Liquid||AMD Radeon RX Vega 64||AMD Radeon RX Vega 56|
|Memory Clock||1.89Gbps HBM2||1.89Gbps HBM2||1.6Gbps HBM2|
|Memory Bus Width||2048-bit||2048-bit||2048-bit|
|Manufacturing Process||GloFo 14nm||GloFo 14nm||GloFo 14nm|
|Architecture||GCN 5||GCN 5||GCN 5|
|GPU||Vega 10||Vega 10||Vega 10|
Apparently, the Radeon RX Vega 64 Liquid Cooled Edition features the highest clockspeeds and highest power requirements among the three. It includes 64 CUs, 64 ROPs, boosting to 1677MHz, and comes with with 8GB of HBM2 memory clocked at 1.89Gbps.
The Radeon RX Vega 64 comes next with Vega 10 GPU, with 64 CUs and 64 ROPs. Its clockspeed is reduced to 1247MHz base and 1546MHz boost. It will also have the same 8GB of HBM2 as on the liquid cooled card, still running at 1.89Gbps for 484GB/sec of memory bandwidth.
Lastly, we have the most power efficient card among the three, the Radeon RX Vega 56. It will feature 56 of 64 CUs enabled and its clockspeed and GPU is also reduced, running at 1156MHz base and 1471MHz boost, while the HBM2 memory runs at 1.6Gbps (for 410GB/sec of memory bandwidth).
The Radeon RX Vega cards are expected to available on August 14. Their prices will be as of follows:
- Radeon RX Vega 64 Liquid Cooled Edition – $699 (~Php35299.50)
- Radeon RX Vega 64 – $599 (~Php30249.50)
- Radeon RX Vega 56 – $499 (~Php25199.50)
