    Highly unlikely as I have read that Vega 56 is launching a month after Vega 64. I would say this is one of the 3 variants of Vega 64. Just not sure which one.

    Well 945 memory is dead give away since Vega 56 has lower frequency.

    @user1

    I don't really understand what is going with AMD on that part even Fury X was bandwidth starved. And they went with quite a bit less bandwidth this time.

    In reality Vega stock is pushing something like 280GB/s anyway.

    Exactly, I initially was hoping that this was Vega 56 performance and not Vega 64. But like you said Vega 64 has memory clock of 945 vs Vega 56 of 800. All I can hope, is it's not the watercooled variant. Not good at all.

    Theres rumours over here that the AMD "Black" reference cards are going to be sold at the same price as the "Limited Edition" cards, ie both at $599 for the aircooled models.

    Vega 64 competes very well with an overclocked GTX1080 in 3DMark on the latest final release drivers

    So, the performance of Vega FE infact WAS an indication of how the RX series would perform. In 3dmark anyway.

    Talking about Vega FE, it's had a £300 price drop!?!

    https://www.overclockers.co.uk/amd-...card-16gb-hbm2-4096-stream-pro-gx-02e-am.html

    Wow. I imagine the market didn't respond positively to it? Anyone got any info?

    Yeah sorry. I'm using my mobile phone currently. Will change it when I get to my desktop.

    In short?

    New DX12 & Vulcan 64 Instructions

    Many H/W changes -> indeed new & shiny (That's why it needs new Drivers, and they aren't mature yet ET 3-6 months)

    Wait for Vega reviews on Guru or Annand
    or read here:
    -> AMD Vega Microarchitecture Technical Overview

    AMD Radeon RX Vega 64 and Vega 56 reviews coming this monday
    “As of today, AMD noted that RX Vega 56 cards have been shipped to reviewers, along with a request that reviewers specifically “prioritize coverage” of RX Vega 56 over RX Vega 64 under time-constrained conditions.”


    I don't remember ATI/AMD being that desperate.

    AMD Navi 7nm GPU’s to have Advanced AI Acceleration Hardware !

    AMD’s future generation of graphics cards are in the foreseeable future with a name already that is basically all we know about the GPU’s themselves until now… ‘Navi’ will also be featuring AI Acceleration Hardware.

    Navi will be focusing on the power efficiency of the GPU and it is said to be believed that Navi will be the first microarchitecture GPU designed and conceived under Radeon Technologies Group Raja Koduri.

    Fudzilla has released some information regarding the future of what Navi will be featuring. Something that is called ‘AI acceleration circuitry’ will be on board this new GPU but this is quite vague as there is no way to know what that actually means. This could mean anything from on-chip fabric, new ISA capabilities or perhaps even a new a separate AI acceleration engine.

    Navi will be the first graphics card architecture built on GlobalFoundaries 7nm FinFET process. It is expected at the current time of writing this that Navi should drop between 2018/2019 but that is a long time away so who knows the delays AMD could face between then and now.

    AMD's Vega NDA dates, which are:

    # Unboxing embargo lift on Saturday, August 12, 11AM EDT: AMD permits unboxing photos or videos only.
    # Performance embargo lift for Vega 56 on August 14, 9AM EDT.
    # RX Vega 64 already in hands of some reviewers, with unboxing embargo lift on Saturday, August 12, 11AM EDT.
    # RX Vega 64 performance embargo lift on August 14, 9AM EDT.
    # Update: Vega 56 launches on 8/28.

    ->
    C1: Vega 56 Is the more attractive gpu. If the dies aren't rubbish, you could get great overclocks with an AIB card, so you get most of a 1080's performance for 1070 money.
    Can't wait for the reviews!

    C2: I think that might be true. I want to get vega 64 but i'm curious about the reviews. Then i will be able to decide which card has better perf/$.
    If 56 turns out to be a great Overclocker maybe that's the way to go especially if it matches 1080's performance. Since some benchmarks showed that it might be better than 1070 but a noticeable margin straight from the box. <-

    At least it's not too long to wait now. Hopefully AMD has managed to egg or a bit more performance from Vega. I would like to update my 480 for one or the other.

    Reviewers always shows overclocked GPU and CPU in their benchmarks, i would love to see some memory tuning as well. I'm pretty sure that thee vram latency mod helps an r9 295x2 a lot in 4k.
