After long months of mystery, the red team finally revealed its two new GPUs for gaming. These are the models Radeon RX Vega 56 and Radeon RX Vega 64, the latter in its variants with air and liquid cooling, both also available in limited editions. The AIB video card (from MSI, Gigabyte, ASUS, etc.) will be launched during August and September. By Tim Sweeney, AMD also announced the RX Vega Nano model.
AMD Officially Announced The Launch Of Radeon RX Vega 64 and RX Vega 56
AMD Radeon RX Vega 56 video cards are, the more affordable version based on Vega architecture and was estimated by the manufacturer at $ 400. The novelty has 56 compute units, 3584 stream processors and is equipped with eight gigabytes of HBM2 memory with a bandwidth of about 410 GB / s.
The operating frequency of the Vega 10 graphics processors ranges from 1156 to 1471 MHz in dynamic Overclocking, and the nominal TDP level is 210 watts. The “raw” computing power is 10.5 TFlops. In the reference version, the video card is equipped with an air cooler with a centrifugal fan.
AMD Radeon RX Vega 64 is based on a full-fledged version of the Vega 10 chip with 64 compute units and 4096 stream processors coupled with eight gigabytes of multi-layer memory HBM2 with a 2048-bit interface, an effective frequency of 1890 MHz and a bandwidth of 484 GB / s. As already mentioned, the Radeon RX VEGA 64 based graphics cards will be available in three versions: Radeon RX Vega 64, Radeon RX Vega 64 Limited and Radeon RX Vega 64 Liquid Cooled.

The first two options in terms of technical characteristics completely repeat each other and are distinguished by cooling systems. The model marked Limited Edition has received an aluminum casing an backplate, while the “usual” version is content with a plastic shroud. The operating frequency of the GPU in both models is from 1247 to 1546 MHz, the nominal TDP is 295 W, and the performance level is about 12.6 Tflops.
The most productive solution of the new line was the Radeon RX Vega 64 Liquid Edition. Like the younger versions, the video card received eight gigabytes of HBM2 memory, characterized by a throughput of 484 GB / s. The operating frequency of the GPU is 1406 to 1677 MHz, the nominal TDP is 345 W, and the performance level reaches 13.7 TFlops.
This model is equipped with a liquid cooling system with a 120-mm radiator and a fan of the appropriate size, and its casing, like the model with the label Limited, is made of aluminum.

The recommended prices for Radeon RX Vega 64 video cards are as follows:
- Radeon RX Vega 64 – $ 500;
- Radeon RX Vega 64 Limited – $ 600;
- Radeon RX Vega 64 Liquid Cooled – $ 700.
