AMD announces RX Vega 64 and 56: Price and Specs

Below, AMD claims its Radeon RX Vega 64 graphics card can match Nvidia's powerful GTX 1080 graphics cards in the peak frame rates during gameplay.

Reclaiming lost ground against both Intel and Nvidia has been AMD's goal for a little while now. The graphics card will feature 4,096 stream processors and is rated to offer 12.66 teraflops of performance. Likewise, ReLive enhancements from 17.7.2 will also be present in the Vega Radeon Pro software. The Frontier cards were aimed at a prosumer market in between the gaming-focused RX Vega and the true professional cards with certified drivers and similar perks. The Vega 56 will launch for just $399 and is going to be battling against the Nvidia GTX 1070 graphics card. The new architecture is more efficient at rendering, and include a healthy helping of AMD's own next-generation high-bandwidth memory, and early demos of prototype Vega GPUs were incredibly impressive.

The series starts off with three models, the Radeon RX Vega 56, the Radeon RX Vega 64 and the Radeon RX Vega 64 Liquid Cooled Edition. AMD's two new product lines include a new line of high-end Ryzen Threadripper processors and Radeon RX Vega graphics cards.

The Radeon Aqua Pack with Radeon RX Vega 64 Liquid Cooled will cost $699 and arrive in September. For reference, the GTX 1080 has 9 TFLOPs and the 1080 Ti has 11.3 TFLOPs. With some sites reporting that Nvidia is planning to respond to AMD's new arrival by accelerating the release of its family of Volta GPUs for a launch in Q3 of 2017, Vega may have competition on its hands in a matter of months.

There will be 4,096 stream processors, 64 compute units along with an 8 GB advanced HBM2 memory with 484 Gbps of bandwidth in the Radeon RX Vega 64. Named Radeon RX Vega 64 Limited Edition, its performance specification though will be the same as the Radeon RX Vega 64 but will only be available to an initial lot of buyers. Supposing the report is accurate, this might disclose that AMD has also publicized the RX Vega's features to its hardware partners. These are essentially GPU "bundles" which cost $100 more than the card-only pricing, but give you $200 off a 34-inch Samsung ultrawide gaming monitor, $100 off certain Ryzen 7 1800X / 370X motherboard combinations and free copies of Prey and Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus.

AMD also offers a wide range of tools and open source software for professional content creators including Radeon ProRender and the Radeon ProRender Game Engine Importer.

The Radeon Pro WX 9100 workstation graphics card is created to excel in the most demanding media and entertainment, and design and manufacturing workloads.
