Kind of out of left field, a marketing campaign has emerged in China for AMD’s Radeon RX Vega graphics cards, suggesting a full reveal and launch could be on the cards soon for AMD’s next generation graphics architecture.
According to the leaked video, the Radeon RX Vega will feature a full fat Vega 10 GPU with 8GB of second generation HBM2 and an all-in-one liquid cooler. This pitches the Radeon RX Vega in the same sort of target market as its previous Fury graphics cards. Liquid cooling should obviously ensure better thermal performance, which could come in handy if AMD is choosing to crank the core clocks up high.
AMD’s Radeon RX Vega graphics card will be adopting a fairly unique silver and red look. On the front there’s a full Radeon Vega logo, while on the back a simple ‘R’ is printed. Both of these glow red thanks to LED lighting. It’s a dual slot design and features a 6+8-pin power connection.
Specs-wise, we are looking at the following:
14nm Vega 10 GPU
- 4096 stream processors
- 64 NCUs (Next Compute Units)
- 2048-bit memory bus
- 8 GB HBM2
- 512GB/s Memory Bandwidth
- PCIe Gen 3 x 16
- 225W TDP
The Radeon RX Vega card itself will be coming in a rather slick black, red and silver box, complete with LED lighting on the box itself. Underneath the Vega logo is the simple tagline - “It’s Got a Brain, It’s Got a Soul, It’s Almost Human.”
Should this not tickle your fancy, AIB partners will also be offering their own takes on the Radeon RX Vega.
All signs right now point to the Radeon RX Vega launching sometime in May this year, meaning we’ve got somewhere in the region of 4-6 weeks before these are finally in our hands.
