RX Vega GPU shows up in 3DMark database

AMD Radeon RX Vega

AMD Radeon RX Vega

With prices starting at $399 for the Radeon RX Vega 56, $499 for Radeon Vega RX 64 Air Cooled and topping out at $699 for the Radeon RX Vega 64 Liquid Cooled, AMD is playing squarely in territory now occupied by NVIDIA's higher-end GeForce GTX 10 graphics cards. The Sapphire RX Vega 64 Liquid Cooled will be going on sale starting the 14th of August and that is the same date when the embargo will be lifted. The box shots show that samples won't have the Vega 64 logo, but just rather a standard Radeon RX Vega one, and won't include the previously seen Holocube. The cooler design looks similar to the RX 480 but the RX Vega is a bit longer card, drawing power from two 8-pin PCIe power connectors. This is not the first time AMD has done this, as a year ago they included a defunct Fiji GPU inside of their Radeon Pro Duo package.

We have seen listings of AMD Vega GPUs and it seems that the GPUs will be sold for as much as $100 higher than the MSRP.

Since reviewers already got samples, it does not come as a big surprise that some 3DMark results already ended up online, showing that the RX Vega 64 performance is somewhere around the GTX 1080, just as we wrote earlier. However, according to what we know so far, the RX Vega 64 should sport a GPU frequency of 1630MHz and a memory clock of 945MHz.
