Earlier this week, AMD officially released its first Vega-based graphics card — the Radeon Vega Frontier Edition — to the public. The card is aimed at graphics professionals, hence its price tag of $999 for the air-cooled card and $1,499 for the water-cooled card. Fortunately, one lucky enthusiast has already gotten his hands on the air-cooled Radeon Vega Frontier Edition today and it’s a beauty. Finished in the same rich blue that we saw with last year’s Radeon Pro professional graphics cards, the Radeon Vega Frontier Edition is accented with yellow Radeon Vega logos and a corner-mounted “R” that also lights up in yellow. There’s not much else to speak of with regards to its exterior appearance... Read more...
After AMD delivered some “shock and awe” with the release of its Ryzen processors earlier this year, gamers are eagerly anticipating the launch of Vega-based graphics cards. Unfortunately for those that don’t have over $1,000 to plunk down on a single card, our first exposure to Vega comes in the form of the Radeon Vega Frontier Edition. We can now confirm today that this high-end professional-grade graphics card has a starting price of $999 for the air-cooled version, while its water-cooled sibling is priced at $1,500 (this meshes with earlier reports). As we’ve mentioned previously, the Radeon Vega Frontier Edition has 16GB of HBM2 memory, 483GB/sec of memory bandwidth, 4096 stream processors... Read more...
AMD’s Vega graphics architecture is fast approaching a retail release, but unfortunately for gamers, the first available cards will be the professional workstation-targeted Radeon Vega Frontier Edition.

Both graphics cards include 16GB of HBM2 memory, 483GB/sec of memory bandwidth, 4096 stream processors 13.1 TFLOPS single precision compute performance and 26.2 TFLOPS double precision compute performance.

AMD definitely turned heads when it announced the Radeon Vega Frontier Edition earlier this week. Based on AMDs 14nm FinFET “Vega” architecture, the professional workstation graphics card promises 13 TFLOPs single-precision compute performance and includes 16GB of HBM2. However, what about those of us who simply want a no-frills, kickass gaming card; one that will go toe-to-toe with the best that NVIDIA has to offer with its GeForce GTX 10 Series? AMD hasn’t forgotten about us, and confirmed that it will soft launch the Radeon RX Vega later this month at Computex. During a reddit AMA session yesterday afternoon, Raja Koduri, Senior Vice President and Chief Architect for Radeon Technologies Group,... Read more...
