AMD has officially announced their RX Vega 56 and 64 GPUs

 

AMD's Radeon RX Vega has been officially revealed, finally showcasing the specification of AMD's upcoming GPU flagship, which will offer support for several new features and deliver enhanced performance when compared to their existing Polaris GPU lineup.   

So far three versions of the RX Vega have been confirmed, the RX Vega 56, the RX Vega 64 Air and the RX Vega 64 Liquid, which offer peak compute performance of 10.5TFLOPs, 12.6TFLOPs and 13.7TFLOPs respectively.   

AMD has now changed how they list GPU boost clock speeds on their products, with "boost" clocks now being measured as the expected boost clock during typical gaming workloads and now max boost clock like previously, which is great news for gamers that want more accurate specification listings for their products. This is why the RX Vega 64 air is listed with a lower boost clock than the Radeon Vega Frontier Edition.

One of the more interesting additions to the RX Vega lineup is the RX Vega 56, which comes with a price of $399 and up to 10.5 TFLOPs of compute performance. This pricing places this GPU into competition with Nvidia's GTX 1070, which offers much less memory bandwidth, making this GPU comparison very interesting depending on the user's desired gameplay resolution/workload.

AMD will be offering GPUs with "RX VEGA Family" packs, which will allow buyers to access free games, money off other AMD hardware or money of a FreeSync compatible display, which could allow AMD users to access a little more value for their money when building a new AMD powered system.

Sadly AMD did not release any detailed benchmark results for these GPUs, though it is clear that AMD is placing the RX Vega 64 beside the GTX 1080 in terms of performance, stating that the RX Vega could provide better minimum frame rates with the data they show below. 

To say the least, this data should not be trusted until AMD places these GPUs into the hands of reviewers, as only then will we be able to provide gamers will a true outlook on Vega's performance.

AMD has stated that AMD's RX Vega series of GPUs will be shipping on August 14th, which means that AMD fans will have to wait for two weeks before they can pre-order their next GPU.

Why do they compare Nvidia to Freesync 48Hz, when G-sync works from 30Hz Quote

Actually PCPER showed when the PG278Q came out that G-Sync works as low as 1Hz.Quote

Freesync can work below 48Hz, but I believe it comes from the drivers and not the panel itself. Also, Freesync can go as low as 40Hz, but the monitor has to support it.Quote

If a FreeSync display has LFC (Low Framerate Compensation) support it also goes down to 1Hz. AMD doesn't say it does because sub 30FPS is a terrible experience regardless.Quote
