GeForce Countered: AMD Launches RX Vega Gaming GPU

Now two years have passed and AMD is set to release the Radeon RX Vega graphics cards on 14 August 2017.

Linus Tech Tips seems to have an exclusive from AMD, which is nearly as big news as Radeon RX Vega itself, with the world's first unboxing of RX Vega at their #LTX2017 event.

Radeon Black Pack - Featuring the Radeon RX Vega 64, an air-cooled card priced at $599 SEP. The company is also throwing in two new games, Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus and Prey, with each pack in select regions. Crank up your graphics quality and bring out every detail at incredible resolutions with the revolutionary "Vega" architecture.

Martin Landau's Hospital Stay Ends In Tragedy
The mark of a truly talented performer is their ability to make a small role memorable, and that's exactly what Landau did here. Martin Landau , who won an Oscar for playing Bela Lugosi in Tim Burton's 1994 film Ed Wood , died Saturday at 89.

The cheapest in the series, the RX Vega 56 boasts of the same 8GB of HBM2 RAM but 56 compute units but has a lower bandwidth of 410 GBps. Both GPUs have 8GB of HBM2 memory on a 2048-bit bus. AMD says the SSG cards are meant to ease the limitations that current-generation hardware and storage impose on content creators working with 8K video footage and other enormous data sets in real time. AMD even hired Linus from linustechtips to do an unboxing at the SIGGRAPH event to show off the new card in an attempt to dazzle the masses with their shiny new piece of hardware whilst restricting people from actually testing the cards hoping that people would not notice the underwhelming performance of the card. Buyers who already own a Freesync-enabled monitor may be more inclined to spend extra to go with AMD so that they may make use of the adaptive-sync features of their monitor. It's been a long time since AMD has truly competed at the high end of gaming and last new flagship card the Fury X was released way back in 2015.

Extreme enthusiasts, however, will want to keep their eyes on the water-cooled version, which has base and boost clocks of 1406 MHz and 1677MHz respectively. It comes with 64 compute units and 4,096 stream processors all of which contributes to a base clock speed of 1247 MHz and a boost clock speed of 1547 MHz. AMD is also releasing a more powerful version of the RX Vega 64 that uses liquid cooling, but it will only be available in a bundle called a Radeon Pack. That fleet of SPs operates at a boost clock of 1500 MHz.

Featuring the same performance and features of the Radeon Pro WX 9100, the Radeon Pro SSG is the first graphics card to offer 2TB of graphics memory, enabling smooth, native 8K video editing in real-time. These will include discounts for a Ryzen processor, motherboard, and an RX Vega graphics card, in configurations to suit your pocket.
