Officially announced last night at the SIGGRAPH conference in Los Angeles, AMD's new Radeon RX Vega GPUs are the talk of the PC hardware town. With some sites reporting that Nvidia is planning to respond to AMD's new arrival by accelerating the release of its family of Volta GPUs for a launch in Q3 of 2017, Vega may have competition on its hands in a matter of months.
To ensure the best possible experience with the Radeon Pro graphics cards, Radeon Pro Software Enterprise Drivers are specifically created to combine the power of AMD's next-generation graphics with the highly-tailored needs of professional users.
Venturing outside of AMD's confines, it's clear the company is hoping to go head-to-head with NVIDIA's own GTX 1080 cards with the RX Vega 64. All the graphics cards are having numbers after their name because that is the number of card's Compute Units. AMD priced it at $499, and it comes along with Radeon RX Vega 56. Vega 10 is having around 12.5 billion transistors and is manufactured using a 14nm FinFET LPP process. AMD has clarified that this feature is only available for Vega-based professional products at the moment.
The massive high-speed memory of the Radeon Pro SSG combined with the "Vega" GPU architecture's vast computation capabilities also enables stunning next-generation workflows, unlocking huge data sets and real-time responsiveness. 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. The WX 9100 has 16 GB of 945 MHz HBM2 ECC memory on the same package as the GPU core, providing up to 484 GB/s of bandwidth. The graphics card will feature 4,096 stream processors and is rated to offer 12.66 teraflops of performance.
Radeon Red Pack - RX Vega, $US500. It will run at 1,247MHz base clock with a boost clock of 1,546MHz.
AMD said it would offer deep discounts on select Ryzen multi-threaded CPUs and motherboard combos as well as select Samsung Electronic (OTC: SSNLF) displays with Radeon Free Sync displays and two extraordinary AAA game titles.
Liquid-Cooled RX Vega version - 350 watts.
The Radeon Aqua Pack with Radeon RX Vega 64 Liquid Cooled will cost $699 and arrive in September. 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.
