AMD has lifted the lid on their new Radeon RX Vega 64 and Radeon RX Vega 56 graphics cards, which will compete directly with Nvidia's 1080 GeForce line. Launching August 14, the $499 USD RX Vega 64 is the premium card with the RX Vega 56 priced at $399 USD. Well, there's a water-cooled version of RX Vega 64, dubbed Radeon RX Vega 64 Liquid Cooled Edition, but that will set you back $699 USD.

So then, what sort of performance can one expect?

Radeon RX Vega 64
  • 64 Compute Units
  • 4,096 Stream Processors
  • 8GB of Advanced HBM2 memory with 484GBps of Bandwidth
  • 1,247MHz Base Cclock with a Boost Clock of 1,546MHz
  • 12.66 TFLOPS of Performance

Radeon RX Vega 56
  • 56 Compute Units
  • 3,584 Stream Processors
  • 8GB of HBM2 RAM with 410GBps of Bandwidth
  • 1,156MHz Base Clock with a 1,471MHz Boost Clock
  • 10.5 TFLOPS of Performance

Note that the Radeon RX Vega 64 Liquid Cooled Edition will boast a higher clock speed and bandwidth thanks to the power of that which is not solid.

Here's the promo video for the new card. Apart from the promotion for a bunch of upcoming games and the mention that playing on the RX Vega is like experiencing video games for the first time, it does sound pretty good.

For more info and detailed write-ups on the specs, head to Anandtech or ArsTechnica.
