AMD Details New Line Of High-End Computer Graphic Cards

AMD RX Vega

The cards are powered by AMD's Vega line of graphics processing units, or GPUS, that have been developed over the past few years under CEO Lisa Su. According to AMD the 17.8 release is the first driver to be compatible with the Vega GPU Architecture. GPUs in both series offer some strong DirectX 12 and Vulkan API performance. It's nearly as if the 1080Ti is not the card AMD is warring against because NVIDIA sells more cards at that slightly lower tier - the 1080 and the 1070 - but we can't be sure!

Radeon RX Vega 64 - will feature 64 compute units, 4,096 stream processors, and 8GB of advanced HBM2 memory with 484GBps of bandwidth. The 56 compute unit model provides 10.5TFLOPS and 3584 stream processors. With any GPU launch, availability can often be an issue. "The combination of a Radeon RX Vega graphics card, a handsome 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".

The wait for that price stabilization may take longer than normal due to the ongoing GPU price spikes as a result of cryptocurrency mining. Radeon ProRender works across Windows, macOS and Linux, and supports AMD GPUs, CPUs and APUs as well as those of other vendors. These bundles also get you free copies of Wolfenstein 2 and Prey, so you can immediately start testing out how the latest and greatest games play on the new card. The additional demand will go beyond what is typical with a normal graphics card launch.

Going by the specs, the Vega 64 can be pegged as an equal to the GTX 1080. Pricing ranges from $399 for the Radeon Red Pack (entry level) to $699 for Radeon Aqua Pack. And while the team will not livestreaming its Capsaicin event, it appears that the prices for its two RX Vega graphics cards have been leaked online.

Radeon Pack buyers will also be entitled to a $100 discount on a package of select AMD Ryzen 7 processors and compatible motherboards, and a $200 discount on the purchase of a Samsung CF791 monitor. AMD hasn't published detailed benchmark results, but it has cherry-picked one key statistic - the Vega family will offer a minimum of 53fps when running games on an ultra-wide 1440p monitor. This is meant to appeal to self-builders using windowed cases.

For instance, the air cooled version of the RX Vega 64 boasts of a bandwidth of 484 GBps along with 8 GB of HBM2 memory. Let us know in the comments!
