Earlier this week, we were a bit disappointed when we heard rumors that AMD would be dropping its standalone air-cooled Radeon RX Vega 64 SKU, effectively raising its price to $599 for the foreseeable future. If this was indeed the case, it would be the ultimate case of “bait and switch”, since AMD played up the attractive $499 price point for the Vega 64 and reviews recommending the graphics card (including ours) were based on this price point. Rather than run with the story, which was originally posted by OC3D on Tuesday, we decided to reach out to AMD for further clarification. It took a few... 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...
Sapphire is one of AMD's premier hardware partners, so it makes sense that one of the first photo shoots of a Radeon RX Vega graphics card by a third-party belongs to the company. And unlike most pre-release photos, these are not blurry snapshots that look like they were taken with a Fisher Price camera in the middle of an earthquake—they're crisp, clear, and show the card from multiple angles. The photos were taken by a member of the Chinese-language Chiphell forum. We do not typically dwell on packaging, though one thing that is immediately interesting to note is that the retail box simply states... Read more...
It is a tough time to be a gamer in need of a graphics card upgrade. There are some excellent options for gaming on the PC, but with the cryptocurrency gold rush that has taken place over the past several months, it can be difficult to (A) find certain graphics in stock and (B) not pay an inflated price for one. Digital coin miners have created a shortage, and if AMD's Radeon RX Vega 64 proves to be a mining power house as rumored, we could be looking at a similar situation for many months to come. One of the staff members at OCUK claims the hash rate on "Vega" is 70-100 million hashes per second... Read more...
Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past twelve hours, then you know that AMD officially unveiled its Radeon RX Vega architecture. With a starting price of $399 (Radeon RX Vega 54), AMD is looking to bring some incredibly potent graphics muscle to compete with the GeForce GTX 10 Series. Up until this point, AMD has given us just a small taste of what to expect when it comes to performance of Radeon RX Vega 64. AMD posted a few slides late last night that shows that when it comes to minimum and maximum framerates running at 3440x1440 and 3840x2160, the Radeon RX Vega 64 offers generally... Read more...
At long last, AMD over the weekend finally unveiled its Vega graphics card lineup for consumers, announcing both air cooled and liquid cooled variants. With the official announcement out of the way, AMD's hardware partners are now free to unveil their own custom designs, and ASUS did not waste any time doing so. ASUS has four Vega cards on tap through its Republic of Gamers (ROG) division. All four are the faster Radeon RX Vega 64 variety, as opposed to the slower (and lower cost) Radeon RX Vega 56 that AMD also announced at SIGGRAPH on Sunday. They include air cooled and water cooled SKUs, along... Read more...
