When it comes to AMD's Radeon RX Vega family of graphics cards, we haven't seen much [yet] as far as custom boards go. Sure, we've seen a custom board from ASUS and Gigabyte's Radeon RX Vega 64 GAMING OC, but that's about it. Thankfully, the folks over at XFX are teasing an upcoming Radeon RX Vega card, and it's quite the looker. Our first look at the card comes thanks to Mark Regimbal, community manager over at XFX, who posted images to reddit.  The first thing that caught our attention is most definitely the twin red fans, which are ensconced in a carbon fiber-esque shroud. It's a dramatic... Read more...
AMD is still trying to get a handle on Radeon RX Vega production in the wake of the cryptocurrency craze that is contributing to a shortage of graphics cards in general. In the meantime, it appears that AMD's hardware partners are readying custom designed cards with fancy cooling solutions and, in some cases, factory overclocks, among other features not found on AMD's reference cards (such as RGB lighting). Look for them to hit store shelves next month (hopefully)A French-language website says it was informed by a source that custom designed cards from the likes of Asus, Gigabyte, and MSI will...

AMD graphics cards are no stranger to BIOS modifications to “unlock” previously unsupported functionality. Back in April, we reported of enthusiasts flashing Radeon RX 480 GPUs with the BIOS from the RX 580 in order to unleash additional performance. Now we’re hearing that the AMD’s new Radeon RX Vega 56 is ripe for BIOS modification. Some rather enterprising folks first attempted to install a Vega 64 BIOS onto a Vega 56 in an effort to unlock additional compute units. However, these efforts were thwarted, as it appears the inactive CUs cannot be restored using BIOS trickery. However, flashing... Read more...
Raja Koduri, head of AMD's Radeon Technologies Group, is back in the United States after spending two weeks in India, a combination of a vacation and visiting AMD's engineering sites in Hyderabad and Bangalore. While he was gone, there has been much chatter about AMD's recently launched Radeon RX Vega 64 and Radeon RX Vega 56 graphics card for gamers, including perceived price hikes and supply falling short of demand. If you are wondering what Koduri's take is on all that has transpired, you need only visiting his Twitter stream. "I try to stay away from social media while traveling to be present... Read more...
The supply problems surrounding AMD’s Radeon RX Vega 64 flagship consumer graphics cards have been well documented. However, the Vega 64 isn’t the only new enthusiast graphics card that AMD has on deck; it also announced the slightly less potent Radeon RX Vega 56 (read our review of both cards). The Vega 56 launched this morning, and like clockwork, it sold out within minutes. Amazon was offering both XFX and Sapphire Vega 56 cards via its site, but they were quickly snatched up by eager gamers (or those looking to make a quick buck by flipping them). Both cards were listed at $399.99. Likewise,... Read more...
There are not a whole of Radeon RX Vega graphics cards to choose from at the moment (pretty typical following a launch), but that is going to change. So too will the lack of custom cooled Vega cards by AMD's hardware partners. ASUS alone is prepping a handful of Vega cards, including several under its Republic of Gamers (ROG) banner (and a rumored dual-GPU model). After having strutted out a bunch of Radeon RX Vega 64 cards at the end of July, ASUS has put up products pages for two Radeon RX Vega 56 parts. These are both ROG cards. The include the ROG Strix RV Vega 56 (ROG-STRIX-RXVEGA56-8G-GAMING)... Read more...
In case you haven’t been keeping up, late last month AMD officially announced the consumer version of its Vega-based graphics cards to much fanfare. With prices starting at $399 for the Radeon RX Vega 56, $499 for Radeon Vega RX 64 Air Cooled and topping out at $699 for the Radeon RX Vega 64 Liquid Cooled, AMD is playing squarely in territory currently occupied by NVIDIA’s higher-end GeForce GTX 10 graphics cards. As it turns out, late this week AMD finally had a shipment delivered to us that contained a graphics card presentation unlike any other we've seen to date. Luckily for us, we’ve... Read more...
