AMD's Siggraph 2017 RX Vega launch event footage is now up

AMD RX Vega 10 Lineup Leaked Vega 11 12 & 20 GPUs confirmed

AMD on Sunday revealed its upcoming Vega gaming Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) line-up. It's been a long time since AMD has truly competed at the high end of gaming and last new flagship card the Fury X was released way back in 2015. However, for now, the air-cooled card is the focus of AMD's marketing efforts.

And the big moment is finally coming for AMD fans. GPUs in both series offer some strong DirectX 12 and Vulkan API performance. But their visions and the technology needed to achieve them is a moving target, an unending challenge that demands more from creators and the technology they use every year.

The RX Vega 64 is priced at $399 and the RX Vega 64 at $499. To that end, AMD's new Vega cards come in three flavors: Vega 56, Vega 64, and Vega 64 Liquid Cooled Edition. The superior "64" variants have 4096 stream processors - the air-cooled model offers 12.7TFLOPS, while the liquid-cooled version offers 13.7. With any GPU launch, availability can often be an issue. The company announced the launch of this new lineup in Lost Angeles and this new lineup will go head-to-head with the latest and greatest from its rival, Nvidia. And ultimately, bringing that sort of competition to the high-end of the graphics card market is only a good thing.

In the insane high-end PC gaming graphics card market, you have two choices: AMD or Nvidia.

Federal Realty Investment Trust (NYSE:FRT)
Zurcher Kantonalbank Zurich Cantonalbank boosted its position in shares of Empire State Realty Trust by 8.4% in the first quarter. BidaskClub lowered Empire State Realty Trust from a "hold" rating to a "sell" rating in a research report on Tuesday, July 25th.

AMD's pitch is that, while Vega is pretty much on a par with Nvidia's 10-series, pairing one of them with a FreeSync monitor will provide a smoother gaming experience. You can read up some more on these professional content creator products in the official press release from AMD. Named Radeon RX Vega 64 Limited Edition, its performance specification though will be the same as the Radeon RX Vega 64 but will only be available to an initial lot of buyers. There are also deals that involve a $200 discount for a Samsung monitor or a $100 discount on a motherboard package.

The Radeon RX Vega comes in two base forms, the Vega 56 and the Vega 64.

AMD's new Radeon Pro Software also enables native support for Dell's new 8K UP3218K display, but you'll need one of AMD's outrageous Radeon Pro SSG cards, which feature 1TB of NAND flash memory to handle incredibly memory intensive workloads, to meet the display's demands. Again, US pricing has taken point here but we are assured that the deals will extend to the United Kingdom and most of Europe, using a similarly immediate "in the basket" discount.

For those still on the fence about which GPU to buy, is the RX Vega bundle pack something you would consider? The RX Vega 64 Air and RX Vega Liquid should hit $499 and $599 respectively.
