AMD Radeon RX Vega will reportedly boast an excellent price to performance ratio as claimed by an insider source. The news is coming months before the launch of the gaming-focused cards which several buyers are anticipating.

The latest information is coming from Bits and Chips who have been historically accurate with most of their rumors and leaks. The latest series of tweets from the same claims that AMD Radeon RX Vega will be having an excellent pricing and performance ration.

This sounds really good for those who have been waiting for AMD Radeon RX Vega for so long and it looks like the Radeon RX Vega cards will be targeting multiple price points. AMD has already launched two Vega GPUs for the Apple Mac Pro series which include a full 64 NCU and a cut down 56 CU variant.

These come with the same number of cores as the Radeon R9 Fury series cards at 4096 and 3584 respectively. But, AMD Radeon RX Vega delivers more performance throughput and has increased clocks.  Vega will also include several architectural upgrades such as HBCC and Rapid Packed Math which might speed up gaming app performance as demonstrated several months ago, as reported by WCCFTech.

In leaked slides, it was given that AMD will prepare a Vega 20 GPU with same features as the present Vega 10 GPUs but added twice precision hardware to the mix. The information leaked inside old roadmaps so it's expected AMD could have changed the plans and are focusing on the Navi for a proper FP64 capable GPU.

The AMD is yet to confirm but the report also claims that the company will be releasing a Vega card that will be based on the Radeon R9 Nano. However, Polaris will continue to give the best price to performance ratio for the users looking for a graphics card mainly for mining.
