LOOK AT THAT MEMORY BANDWITH!! 

The AMD RX Vega 64 features 12.5 billion 14nm transistors and uses 45MB of SRAM across the GPU. While the air-cooled RX Vega 64 features a 1546MHz boost clock, AMD says that the card is designed to run at higher frequencies, and should be able to reach 1.7GHz or higher.

Here are the thermal design power (TDP) ratings of the three cards:

  • RX Vega 64 Liquid Cooled: 350 watts

  • RX Vega 64 Air Cooled: 290 watts

  • RX Vega 56: 210 watts

As you can see from the TDP numbers above, these are very power-hungry cards.


AMD RX RADEON VEGA'S PERFORMANCE 

In terms of performance, AMD asserts that RX Vega 64 is competitive with Nvidia’s $549 GeForce GTX 1080.

The company conducted several gaming benchmarks on the GTX 1080, and across all tests its frame rate fluctuated between 45 FPS and 78 FPS. The air-cooled RX Vega 64, running the same tests, showed a minimum FPS of 53 and a maximum FPS of 76. While the maximum FPS is two frames lower, the minimum frame rate is eight frames higher.

AMD also asserts that RX Vega 64 will be able to run over 100 modern games at 4K 60FPS or better.

In addition, the company says that the Radeon RX Vega 56 will be competitive with the GTX 1070.


AMD'S RX VEGA LINEUP PRICES

The standard air-cooled version of AMD’s RX Vega 64 will launch at $499. This is $50 less than Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 1080.

AMD will release its Vega 56 SKU for $399, which makes it the same price as Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 1070.

AMD has also announced several bundles, which include two free games (Prey 2 and Wolfenstein II), a $100 discount on a Ryzen 7 CPU, and a $200 discount on a Samsung ultra-wide monitor. The bundle packs are outlined below:

  • Radeon AquaPack with RX Vega 64 Liquid Cooled for $699

  • Radeon Black Pack with RX Vega 64 Air Cooled for $599

  • Radeon Red Pack with RX Vega 56 for $499.

The only way to get the liquid-cooled card is to pay for the $699 pack, which includes the two aforementioned games and discounts.
