Radeon RX Vega graphics card was introduced

Finally the wait is over. AMD with the introduction of Radeon RX Vega is ready to compete with the long-time rival, i.e. Nvidia is RX Vega 64 for $499 and RX Vega 56 will be sold for $399. At this stage, marketing and sales of new products is very important for AMD. The company has been maneuvering its new products for a long time, and this has made users and consumers interested in the architecture of the RX Vega cards. These products have been named since 2016 and over time, product architecture previews, product teasers and Frontier versions have been released to attract consumers. AMD has been making a lot of noise for a long time and hopes to heat up the competition market with new products.

Today we have good news and bad news for you. The bad news is that the Radeon RX Vega will not be released today. In fact, the exact release date of these products has been announced on August 14. So reviewers and buyers will have to wait a little longer.

The good news is that AMD has finally provided full details of its new products along with their price tags. Although gamers are currently unable to purchase these graphics cards; But according to the announcement of the release date, they can make the necessary plans to buy these cards. In general, this situation is similar to the introduction of Radeon R9 290, where AMD, before the product launch, showed a demonstration of had presented the specifications and prices of the products.

So without any time loss, we will go to the specifications and prices of AMD’s Radeon RX Vega family:

AMD has introduced 3 graphics cards that All 3 uses Vega 10 GPU. This chip is also used in the Radeon Vega Frontier Edition graphics card that was released a while ago.

The most powerful graphics card introduced is called Radeon RX Vega 64 Liquid Cooled Edition. The Vega 64 graphics card uses the full Vega chip and has the highest frequency and power consumption. This product has 64 CU and 64 ROP with a boost frequency of 1677 MHz. It also uses 8 GB of HBM2 memory with a frequency of 1.89 Gbps. The power consumption of the reference board is 345 watts. To cool such a card, you need a liquid cooler, and as the name of this product suggests, this graphics card will come with a liquid cooler with a 120 mm radiator.

The second introduced product is called Radeon RX Vega 64, and unlike its older brother, it has air cooling Uses. The specifications of this card are the same as the previous card and they differ only in the working frequency. In fact, the Radeon RX Vega 64 card is AMD’s main product and the previous model is an overclocked version of this product next to liquid cooling. As mentioned, the Radeon RX Vega 64 graphics card Like its bigger brother, it has 64 CUs and 64 ROPs along with 8 GB of HBM2 memory with a frequency of 1.89 Gbps. But unlike the previous model, this product works at a base frequency of 1247 MHz and a boost frequency of 1547 MHz. This reduction in frequency and not using liquid cooling reduces the power consumption of Radeon RX Vega 64 to 295 watts. Unlike other introduced cards, Radeon RX Vega 64 reference, with two Various designs will be offered. The first design will be similar to the RX 480 graphics card (made of plastic). But the second design, which is called “limited edition“, will use brushed aluminum instead of plastic surface, which is very similar to Vega Frontier Edition. Note that the difference between the two designs is only in the material of the covering surfaces, and in terms of circuit design, PCB and performance, there is no difference.

More information about Vega 64 cooling design Not available. We only know that the size of its fan has increased and reached 30 mm (diameter 60 mm). The fan in turn is responsible for cooling the heatsink. This heatsink is located on the GPU and memory modules, which is a common design for powerful graphics cards with high power consumption.

The third and last announced member is called Radeon RX Vega 56. Some of the circuits in this graphics card are disabled, so that only 56 of the 64 CU units are active. The working frequency of this product has been reduced compared to previous products, so that the base frequency is 1156 MHz and the boost frequency is 1471 MHz. HBM2 memory also works with a clock of 1.6 Gbps (bandwidth 410 GB/s). This card is less powerful than other products. The power consumption of this card is 210 watts and 85 watts less than Radeon RX Vega 64. Unlike other specifications, the amount of HBM2 memory remains intact.

Many readers may be asking the question that, considering the specifications of the new AMD cards, what should be expected about the performance of these products? to have The picture below shows Graphics Card Radeon RX Vega 64 with GTX 1080 has compared 6 game titles in minimum frame rate.

Of course, the published slides and photos do not give us much information about the power of AMD’s new products. Even information about the performance of Vega 64 Liquid and Vega 56 is not available and we have to wait for more complete benchmarks to get more information.
