Unless you've been living under a rock for the past twelve hours, then you know that AMD officially unveiled its Radeon RX Vega architecture. PC Gamers that have waited more than a year for AMD's response to nVidia's Pascal cards will continue to wait until there are enough cards in the retail channel to ensure that the inflated pricing that is typically seen with new launches is alleviated.

How does it compare to Nvidia's graphics cards?

Combined with a boasted 60 percent more bandwidth over Nvidia's GDDR5, AMD's new card is yielding a peak performance of 13.7 teraflops, allowing it to "power through even the most demanding games and VR applications".

The flagship of the Radeon RX Vega family of consumer cards is the Radeon RX Vega 64 Liquid Cooled Edition. All the graphics cards are having numbers after their name because that is the number of card's Compute Units. With a starting price of $399 (Radeon RX Vega 54), AMD is looking to bring some incredibly potent graphics muscle to compete with the GeForce GTX 10 Series.

And the big moment is finally coming for AMD fans. It also features the same 64 compute units along with 4,096 stream processors.

Vega will come in a number of different variants including the vega 64 and 56 which will be released later this month.

AMD's new Vega-based Radeon Pro products support a feature called Radeon Pro Security thanks to the inclusion of AMD's Secure Processor on the Vega 10 die. The WX 9100 has 16 GB of 945 MHz HBM2 ECC memory on the same package as the GPU core, providing up to 484 GB/s of bandwidth. The Radeon RX Vega 64 Liquid-Cooled Edition has the same GPU configuration, but with higher base and boost clocks - 1,406MHz and 1,677MHz, respectively. It has a base clock speed of 3.8GHz, a boost clock of 4.0GHz and an XFR limit of 4.2GHz. These will include discounts for a Ryzen processor, motherboard, and an RX Vega graphics card, in configurations to suit your pocket.

In an attempt to stave off miners, AMD has created " Radeon packs".

Also, as has been the company's strategy so far, the new RX Vega 64 and 56 GPUs too are all about offering superior processing at an affordable price point. There are three RX Vegas being offered: the RX Vega; RX Vega; and RX Vega Liquid Cooled Edition.

AMD's HBCC/HBC is engineered to use the HBM2 in a similar manner to a last level GPU cache and some much more detailed examples of how this works needs to be provided by AMD in a more Technical highly detailed whitepaper format.

Liquid-Cooled RX Vega version - 350 watts.
