A new teaser video of Limited Edition AMD Radeon RX Vega has just been leaked online via Chinese sources. The video features High-End Vega 10, 8GB HBM2 and Liquid Cooled Graphics Card.
A few Weeks back some images from the same video were released, but this time the whole video came out. It was shared to the press at an event in APAC region. AMD on Reddit confirms the video.
What The leaked Video Features?
The leaked video not only showcases the AMD Radeon RX Vega, but it also gives info on the Limited Edition models as well. These cards will be available soon by AMD.
Furthermore, as the video suggests, this High-end piece of tech will be available in a unique packaging. The packaging will also include a number of other things as well. it will be equipped with L.E.Ds glowing beneath the R logo representing the Radeon brand.
Combined with the leaked video and all the prior information, we actually know more now about the AMD Radeon RX Vega. Following are the details of specifications and design of AMD Radeon RX Vega.
Liquid Cooling Design Confirmed
AMD Radeon RX Vega uses a powerful Vega 10 GPU and features an 8 GB HBM2 VRAM with AIO Liquid Cooler. Just like the Fury X, it uses a heat sink and utilizes the liquid cooling system for better thermal performance. The card also features a beautiful Silver and Red color GPU thermometer to display the load on the card. Furthermore, the backplate also has some switches that can be manually configured to change the color scheme of the Thermometer.
In addition, the front side of the shroud features a full Radeon logo along with a smaller R logo at the back side. Both of these logos have backlit LEDs installed. The card will be coming in a dual slot design and will feature a number of connectors for power. The casing is about the size of Fury X. It’s powered by an 8+6 pin connector configuration. This was shown earlier on AMD’s CES Event in 2017.
The leaked video further suggests that AMD will also be providing the Radeon RX Vega cards in custom variants as well. This will happen through AMD’s AIB partners, so it is possible that some Air Cooled variants will also come out.
Videocardz Insights on the Specs of AMD Radeon RX Vega
As Videocardz suggests, AMD Radeon RX Vega is expected to come out in the first half of 2017. With a die size of over 500mm2 it will feature 2 HBM2 stacks and will incorporate up to 8GB of HBM2. Earlier it was speculated that the new AMD Radeon RX Vega will only be available with only 8GB of HBM2 VRAM. But, now AMD has said that they will be offering the cards with various memory configurations. This would allow the AIBs to change the memory die stacks and the total number of stacks on Vega’s GPU.
Videocardz further says that the graphics chip of AMD Radeon RX Vega will be utilizing latest 14nm GFX9 core architecture based on the Next Compute Design. It will also have 64 Compute Units (4096 Stream Processors). AMD also have plans to increase the throughput of the chip via the increased clock speed. This will allow AMD to offer better performance as compared to the Fiji GPU. Following is the table of AMD Vega 10 and Vega 11 GPUs.
|Graphics Card||Radeon R9 Fury X||Radeon RX 480||Radeon RX 580||Radeon RX Vega Series||Radeon RX Vega Series|
