SAPPHIRE knows VR is quickly becoming an awesome technology that will continue to expand and has provided 2 x HDMI ports alongside 2 x DisplayPort outputs so that you could have a TV and a VR headset connected at once.

So, if you have 16GB of RAM you could dedicate 4-6GB of it, so it would - in a way - combine with the 8GB of HBM2 for up to 14GB of VRAM.

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.
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.
It's also an incredibly confusing naming scheme that NVIDIA has adopted, but before I get into that - let's look at NVIDIA's previous TITAN X graphics cards, and their official (and unofficial) names.
AMD will thump down its new Vega architecture with a truly next-gen series of graphics cards in the Radeon RX Vega family, led by HBM2 and HBC technologies.
Investigation determined the culprit to be the beta BIOS on their ASRock Z170 Extreme7+, specifically the BIOS which allowed you to overclock locked Intel CPUs.
We retested our RX 470 to account for this issue, and we also updated our review with DirectX 12 benchmarks for Rise of the Tomb Raider and Hitman, plus full OpenGL and Vulkan benchmarks for Doom.
