AMD Radeon RX Vega 64 package includes dead Vega GPU

AMD Radeon RX Vega 64 package includes dead Vega GPU

With prices starting at $399 for the Radeon RX Vega 56, $499 for Radeon Vega RX 64 Air Cooled and topping out at $699 for the Radeon RX Vega 64 Liquid Cooled, AMD is playing squarely in territory now occupied by NVIDIA's higher-end GeForce GTX 10 graphics cards. The GPU has a silver shroud and appears to have a metal finish. As you can see, both the Radeon RX Vega 56 and Radeon RX Vega 64 (seen directly below) feature a cooler design reminiscent of the preceding Radeon RX 480.

The neat looking packaging includes a reference card with a standard blower style cooler, a Vega GPU, and few other goodies.

We have seen listings of AMD Vega GPUs and it seems that the GPUs will be sold for as much as $100 higher than the MSRP.

AMD's RX Vega GPU has been spotted in the Futuremark database, showcasing performance that is similar to NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 1080, which would mean that the upcoming AMD flagship graphics card won't be capable of competing with NVIDIA's absolute high-end models.

Luckily for us, we've got our hands on both the Radeon RX Vega 56 and the air-cooled version of the Radeon RX Vega 64.

Let us know what you think about the Sapphire RX Vega 64 and whether or not you are interested in buying one of these GPUs.
