AMD Releases their Radeon RX Vega Range of Cards


Team Red has revealed the Radeon RX Vega 64 and Radeon RX Vega 56 graphics processors and apparently these GPUs will compete with the NVIDIA GTX 1080 and GTX 1070 respectively.

Reclaiming lost ground against both Intel and Nvidia has been AMD's goal for a little while now. Professionals can switch between three drivers installed on a single PC, such as one Radeon Pro driver and two Radeon "vanilla" drivers. The company is promising an insane 13.7 teraflops of performance when it comes to the liquid-cooled Radeon RX Vega 64.

After months of rumors and speculation, AMD has officially taken the veil off of its upcoming RX Vega range of graphics cards today.

The flagship of the Radeon RX Vega family of consumer cards is the Radeon RX Vega 64 Liquid Cooled Edition. Heck, AMD Windows drivers have really improved over the years too, making it a treat to upgrade when a new version is released. The Radeon Packs start at $499 for the Vega 56 and go up to $699 for the liquid-cooled version of the Radeon RX Vega 64.

The other notable mentions in AMD's Radeon software update include Radeon Pro Security, which only works with AMD's Vega-based graphics cards.

The company will also offer a Radeon RX Vega 64 limited edition with a brushed aluminum shell, pricing for which is yet to be declared.

AMD Vega 10 GPU boasts 4 Asynchronous Compute units, with 4 next-gen Geometry units, and 64 next-gen compute units in its full implementation, with a grand total of 4096 stream processors.

All new Vega cards will offer three DisplayPort 1.4 ports along with HDMI 2.0 ports and will be available starting August 14.

But it's going to take a lot more than 7-month-old hype to dethrone Nvidia, which now sits comfortably with its GTX 1070, 1080, 1080 Ti, and Titan X cards dominating the mid and high end of the graphics market. That may not be the silky-smooth 60fps you'd like, but remember that it's only the lowest framerate you'll see, and notably, it's higher than the 45fps Nvidia's GTX 1080 is capable of on the same screen and selection of games. AMD says that they will price the two games at $120.

At the second annual SIGGRAPH event, AMD announced its professional graphics GPUs namely, Radeon Pro WX 9100 and Radeon Pro SSG, during the graphics cards defy convention. The professional version of ReLive offers numerous same features as Radeon Software Crimson ReLive for gamers, including the 100Mbps maximum bitrate, webcam transparency technology, enhanced audio controller, and capture notifications upgrades that AMD introduced to Radeon Software Crimson ReLive last week.
