AMD Radeon RX Vega: specs and benchmarks

AMD Radeon RX Vega

Summary

AMD started Radeon RX Vega sales 1 April 2017 at a recommended price of $599.99 . This is high-end GCN 1.3 architecture desktop card based on 14 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at gamers. 8 GB of HBM2 memory clocked at 2 GHz are supplied, and together with 2048 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 512 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is 2-slot card attached via PCIe 3.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 267 mm. One 6-pin and one 8-pin connectors are required, and power consumption is at 225 Watt.

It provides outstanding gaming and benchmark performance at 76.27 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon R9 390 X2.
