AMD Radeon Vega Available For Pre-order Now, Starts $1,199

The first pre-order for AMD Radeon Vega graphics card is available now at Scan UK and SabrePC website. Two cards with liquid and air cooling versions are listed for pre-order, which starts from $1,199. It is however interesting to note that both of pre-order graphics card are listed with exact same specifications at both websites.

Hardware wise, both of the Radeon Vega models have 16GB HBM2 memory and Vega 10 GPU of 4096 Stream Processors. The FP32 compute performance of GPU is 13.1 TFLOPS. The GPU has memory bus of 2048-bit and 1882 Gbps memory speed. The frontier edition comes with 1x HDMI and 3x DisplayPort.

The liquid cooling version of AMD Radeon Vega costs $600 extra from air cooling variant, which is priced at $1,199.

Previously, we covered that the AMD’s delay in launching Vega has served the enthusiast market to Nvidia on a silver platter. However, we do see light at the end of the tunnel for AMD as it reaffirms its roll out of Vega in the latter half of June this year as confirmed by AMD CEO Lisa Su. We also know that the first GPU to launch from AMD in the Vega line-up will by the RX Vega Frontier Edition (similar to Nvidia’s own Founders Edition branding) and will contain 16GB of HBM2 memory and come with approximately 13 TFLOPs of Single Precision raw compute power (FP32). To put matters into perspective, Nvidia’s current top-of-the-line GPU, the GTX 1080TI has 11.3 TFLOPs of FP32 compute power. While this is not the only play when it comes to GPU’s (optimization plays a large role), this does prove that AMD is pulling no punches when it comes to pushing out Vega with a flagship product in tow.
