XFX Officially Unveils Custom Radeon RX Vega 56 And Vega 64 Double Edition

Now that Radeon RX Vega 56 and Radeon RX Vega 64 graphics card pricing has finally settled down to somewhat sane levels after months of mind-numbing $100+ price premiums for reference cards, we are beginning to see a slow trickle of custom cards from the usual suspects.

Earlier this week, PowerColor opened preorders for its custom Radeon RX Vega 64 Red Devil, and now it's XFX's turn with its Radeon RX Vega Double Edition graphics cards. The cards are available in RX Vega 56 and RX Vega 64 SKUs, and are shorter in length than typical reference boards.

The cards were teased earlier this month, but now we have official specs for both. However, those that were expecting to see higher clock frequencies from the factory with these cards will likely be disappointed -- both cards come stock frequencies for the GPU clock and memory. That means that base/boost GPU frequencies of 1247MHz and 1546MHz respectively for the Vega 64 Double Edition and 1156MHz and 1471MHz respectively for the Vega 56 Double Edition. Memory frequencies for the Vega 64 and Vega 56 are dialed in at 1890MHz and 1600MHz respectively.

Besides the swanky dual-fan cooling setup, other items of note on the cards include centrally-mounted dual 8-pin connectors, a custom full-length backplate, and four display connectors on the I/O panel (one USB 2.0, three DisplayPort).

We definitely welcome these new custom cards from AMD's board partners, and are looking forward to seeing what else is store with regards to outrageous designs. However, we wouldn't mind seeing a single-slot water-cooled solution similar in scope to EVGA’s wicked GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Kingpin Hydro Copper.
