AMD Radeon RX Vega 64 Limited Edition
The Radeon RX Vega 64 Limited edition is very similar to the Radeon RX Vega 64 reference edition in terms of PCB design and clock speeds. The only difference is the more elegant cooler design that makes use of premium material for the shroud which looks great. There’s the Vega logo on the top and a Radeon “R” square in the corner which emits LED light, similar to the Radeon Vega Frontier Edition. This model will cost slightly more than the reference edition and since it’s a limited edition, it won’t be available for the entire lifespan of the Vega lineup.
AMD Radeon RX Vega 64 Liquid Edition
The third model is the Radeon RX Vega 64 Liquid edition which as the name suggest will feature liquid cooling. The Radeon RX Vega 64 Liquid cooled model looks very similar to the Radeon Vega Frontier Edition Liquid which has already been launched and will come with higher / stable clock speeds compared to the air cooled variants and better cooling potential. The card ships with the 120mm radiator and the internal cooling assembly will be the same as Radeon Vega FE. We can also expect a premium price point for the liquid cooled model.
Both cards look very premium and nicely designed with the whole brushed silver texturing. The Radeon RX Vega 64 graphics cards are powered by dual 8 pin power connectors and will require beefy power supply units to keep them fed under heavy gaming loads.
AMD Radeon RX Vega Lineup Specifications – The 4096 Core GPU Utilizing 8 GB HBM2 and HBCC
The graphics chip will be utilizing the latest 14nm GFX9 core architecture which is based on the NCU (Next Compute Engine) design. The graphics card will feature 64 Compute Units or 4096 stream processors. AMD plans on increasing the throughput of the chip through increased clock speeds. This will allow AMD to pump numbers better than the Fiji GPU which is based on the 28nm GCN 3.0 architecture and comes with the same number of cores, 4096 SPs.
We can expect the clock speeds to be beyond 1600 MHz to deliver increased gaming and graphics performance compared to the Frontier Edition. There’s also 8 GB of HBM2 VRAM which comes in two stacks (4 GB per stack). The graphics card has a total rated bandwidth of 480 GB/s which is lower than 512 GB/s on Fiji. It also features a pixel fill rate of 90 GPixels/s. AMD will be launching all three variants of the Radeon RX Vega 64 graphics card at Capsaicin Siggraph so make sure to stay tuned for more details.
