AMD is on the verge of launching their next-gen Radeon RX Vega graphics card family, with the flagship Radeon RX Vega 64 and Vega 56 cards now in reviewers' hands. From images, you can spot two notable things about Radeon RX Vega 64.
The only difference is that while the AMD RX Vega 64 is air cooled, this version of the GPU is liquid cooled. There's also a rather cool, non-working Vega MCM included, along with a few Radeon RX Vega stickers, that gives you a good view of what 8GB of HBM2 memory looks like bolted up to the rather large Vega GPU die. As it turns out, late this week AMD finally had a shipment delivered to us that contained a graphics card presentation unlike any other we've seen to date. As you can see, the press kit was quite an elaborate affair, similar to what AMD sent us for the Ryzen Threadripper launch, and there were still plenty of goodies inside including a plexiglass cube with a "floating" 3D Vega logo inside.
According to these scores, the Radeon RX Vega 64 gets a GPU score of just above 22k in 3DMark Fire Strike Performance, just above 10k in the Fire Strike Extreme, around 5.7k in Fire Strike Ultra, and around 7k in 3DMark Time Spy benchmark.
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.
