Sapphire is looking to close out 2017 on a high note, and to help accomplish that, the company is releasing a pair of custom, factory-overlocked Radeon Vega graphics cards for gaming enthusiasts. The cards, each with custom cooling solutions, are the Nitro+ Radeon RX Vega 56 and Nitro+ Radeon RX Vega 64. Before we get into the specifics of the cards, let's first start by going over the specifications of reference Radeon RX Vega graphics cards. The reference Radeon RX Vega 56 has 3584 stream processors and base/boost GPU clocks of 1156MHz and 1471MHz respectively. The Radeon RX Vega 64, on the other... Read more...
It has taken a bit, but we are starting to see more custom Radeon RX Vega graphics cards emerge. One of the newest is from Gigabtye. The company has officially launched its Radeon RX Vega 64 Gaming OC 8G, which as the model name suggests is an overclocked variant of the Radeon RX Vega 64, with 8GB of second generation high bandwidth memory (HBM2). It also boasts Gigabyte's custom Windforce 2X cooling solution. Out of the box, Gigabyte's card sports a 1,276MHz base clock and 1,560MHz boost clock. AMD's reference blueprint calls for a 1,247MHz base clock and 1,546MHz boost clock, so Gigabyte did... Read more...
AMD is running a new promotion that it hopes will make its Radeon RX Vega 56 and Radeon RX Vega 64 graphics cards more enticing. For a limited time, customers who purchase a qualifying card will receive Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus and Prey, a couple of AAA titles from Bethesda. While not specifically mentioned, it appears AMD and Bethesda have teamed up for the holiday season. The promotion is in effect now and runs through December 31, 2017. It is a nice bonus that adds up to $100 of value, based on regular MSRPs—when not on sale, Wolfenstein II retails for $60 and Prey goes for $40.... Read more...
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... Read more...
Pictures of PowerColor's Radeon RX Vega 64 Red Devil graphics card leaked to the web at the tail end of last week, and if you were eager with anticipation for the card's release, we have good news. It is now available to pre-order. The only catch is that US vendors don't appear to be offering the Red Devil variant just yet, but at OverclockersUK, it is up for grabs to anyone who has £590 to spend. At the current exchange rate, that works out to around $781 in US currency. The Radeon RX Vega 64 Red Devil is a custom cooled card with a factory overclock. PowerColor goosed the GPU to 1,417MHz...

If you are after fancy looking graphics card with brawn underneath its good looks, you are in luck, and it doesn't even matter if you prefer AMD for NVIDIA. For those who favor the latter, we just posted a review of NVIDIA's Star Wars Titan Xp Collector's Edition, and take it from us, the GeForce is strong with that one. Likewise, if you prefer to roll with AMD, custom Radeon RX Vega cards are starting to trickle out. One that lies in the wings is PowerColor's Radeon RX Vega 64 Red Devil card. Click to Enlarge (Source: Videocardz) Photos of the Red Devil variant have been leaked to the web, giving... Read more...
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...
Although our own testing have shown the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti to easily outpace the Radeon RX Vega 64 in most gaming benchmarks, there appears to be at least one DX12 title that seem to favor AMD's latest graphic flagship. That game is Forza Motorsport 7, which is set to go into wide release tomorrow, October 3rd. In most gaming benchmarks, the Vega 64 has been shown to be a worthy adversary for the GeForce GTX 1080. But in Forza Motorsport 7, the Vega 64 is punching above its weight class, outperforming the GTX 1080 Ti by roughly 23 percent at Full HD resolution. With the resolution cranked... 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...

NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 10 Series and AMD’s Polaris family of Radeon GPUs have been popular with Ethereum miners since the start of 2017. Many of these cards have been in short supply, and the GPU market actually showed an uncharacteristic uptick in growth during Q2 because of this demand. With that in mind, all eyes are currently on AMD with its new Radeon RX Vega family of GPUs. We’ve already seen that the Vega 64 (and the Vega 56 in particular) excel at Ethereum mining once optimized. One redditor, however, has taken his optimizations to the extreme, allowing his Vega 64 to obtain a hash rate of... Read more...
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...
AMD’s Radeon RX Vega family of graphics is becoming known not only for its gaming performance, but also for how incredibly hard it is for enthusiasts to get their hands on them. The Radeon RX Vega 64 is supposed to have an MSRP of $499, but retailers have been tacking $100 to $200 on top of that price when they do have them in stock. Similar shenanigans have taken place with the Radeon RX Vega 56. We’re now learning that AMD’s early run of Vega 64 boards is actually costing the company money… big money in fact. A report hailing from Fudzilla says that AMD is losing roughly $100 on every Vega 64... Read more...
AMD’s highly anticipated Radeon RX Vega family of graphics cards launched roughly two weeks ago (read the HotHardware review here), and it’s been crapshoot since that time to actually find the graphics cards in stock. Even for those that have been able to find one in stock, pricing has been through the roof (Amazon is currently lists the air-cooled XFX Radeon RX Vega 64 at over $700). A new report is suggesting that customers won’t find any relief until October at the earliest due to yield issues. According to DigiTimes, there have been difficulties surrounding how the high bandwidth memory (HBM2),... Read more...
