After months of speculations, the full hardware details regarding the AMD Radeon Vega graphics card are finally here. Preorders for the Radeon Vega Frontier Edition apparently opened late ahead of the card's June 27 launch.
The air-cooled AMD Radeon Vega Frontier Edition costs $1,200 and the liquid-cooled Vega goes for a cool $1,800 at SabrePC. Newegg also now has the new Radeon up for preorder, both air-cooled and liquid-cooled, at the same price. Still, the AMD Radeon Vega Frontier Edition's specs give a ballpark glimpse of what can be expected from consumer Radeon RX Vega graphics cards when they launch at the very end of July.
According to PC World, AMD Radeon Vega Frontier Edition will include more or less same specs except for the thermal design power (TDP) rating. Vega FE card will have 4,096 stream processors, 64 compute units, 13.1 TFLOPS single precision floating point performance, 26.2 TFLOPS double precision floating point performance, pixel fill rate at 90 gigapixels per second, 16GB HBM2 Memory in two stacks with a memory bandwidth of 483GBps. TDP for the Radeon Vega FE is 300 watts (air-cooled), 375W (liquid-cooled)
The final core clock speed for the cards wasn't announced. However knowing what about the Frontier Edition's teraflops performance and hardware details, it will likely peak around 1,600MHz.
At $1,200, the AMD Radeon Vega Frontier Edition has Nvidia's similarly prosumer-focused Titan XP squarely in its sights, as noted by Exxact. However, it was already clear by AMD official that the Vega Frontier Edition doesn't represent Vega's pinnacle of gaming performance.
Speaking of hardware configurations, Apple's iMac Pro boasts Radeon Vega graphics, including an option that packs 56 compute units. That's eight lower than the AMD Vega Frontier Edition, but the CU count lines up exactly with the air-cooled Radeon Fury from the last generation, providing still another hint at what might be seen when the consumer AMD Radeon RX Vega lineup launches later this summer.
