Radeon RX Vega 64 

Released August, 2017
  • 1.2 GHz
  • 8 GB

HBM2 is the memory technology that will be used on Radeon RX Vega, offering some great bandwidth numbers of up to 512GB/sec - but it'll be the memory footprint that makes the difference.

AMD is offering up a huge 10.5 TFLOPs of performance and mixed with 1080p/1440p 60FPS+ gaming with cheaper FreeSync displays, or one of the new Radeon Packs.

In The News From around the web

Radeon RX Vega 64 Liquid Cooled Edition = SEXY: You've got to give it to AMD... they have made one of the best, if not the best reference graphics card ever.
FreeSync + Radeon = Great Value: If you're a new PC gamer, then Radeon RX Vega 56 is a good - but not great value for money graphics card.
While AMD isn't able to best the GTX 1080 Ti with their new RX Vega 64, thanks to HBM2, HBCC, and the new Vega GPU architecture, RX Vega 64 seems damn good at 4K gaming.
It's not the perfect graphics card - requiring 2 x 8-pin PCIe power connectors, high power draw - and right now, unknown temps and power consumption data without proper testing.
Polaris was destined to be the new mid-range champion, and it became that - but not without multiple problems along the way.
NVIDIA continued pummel AMD with the push of the GeForce GTX 980 Ti, and then AMD began teasing its Polaris GPU architecture - months after the company spun off its GPU division into Radeon Technologies Group.
AMD is promising some more fluid gameplay with RX 580 and Radeon Chill, thanks to fewer frames being queued to your display, you can reduce the response time of the frames being rendered by 64%, down to 6ms from 16.7ms..
The news headline cycle only cares about high-end products, but the sell through numbers on RX 560/550 are going to be huge in overseas markets like China, where there are tens of millions of gamers that would jump at a new $99 graphics card.

My Vega 56 crushes my friends last generation TITAN and his new 8700+1080ti $2300 rig is only around 30% faster in max settings on any particular game and on most games neither rig drops below 60fps regardless. My entire build cost around $1100 new last year. I will never argue that Intel and NVIDIA have ruled the top of the charts for awhile in raw performance, but they can't compare to AMD for value and I can still upgrade, where my friend is maxed out minus going SLI.
Huhu Nvidiots are butt hurt! AMD finally release a card that makes shit spin and Nvidia fans can't handle it. Also to be fair Nvidia cards cost twice as much as its counterpart at release. The Vega is still cheaper even at a high price point. Who actually owns a Vega and complains it sucks? Nvidiots who never bought one that's who!
beg to differ its slower in Video editing check this shit out :/ https://www.computerbase.de/2017-08/radeon-rx-vega-64-56-test/8/#abschnitt_videoencoding_mit_staerken_und_schwaechen I was considering it for Video editing.....
It just released the money comparison is irrelevant, for now. And also... as far as raw power and productivity goes it IS better than 1080 so there is that.
So where is Your AMD God now then ?? They charge MORE THAN NV for less in every aspect on Vega 64. In UK air cooled one costs more than 1080 AIO one BUHAHAHAHAH
Winner RX vega...
