AMD Radeon RX Vega 56 & 64 Graphics Card Unboxing

So, Lately AMD officially announced the consumer version of its Vega-based graphics cards. With a reasonable  prices starting at $399 for the Radeon RX Vega 56, $499 for Radeon Vega RX 64 Air Cooled and  $699 for the Radeon RX Vega 64 Liquid Cooled, AMD has now it’s place in the territory currently occupied by NVIDIA’s higher-end GeForce GTX 10 graphics cards. This week  AMD decide to  finally send and deliver to reviewers a box that contained a graphics card presentation unlike any other we’ve seen to date.

Luckily for those reviewers, they have got theirs hands on both the Radeon RX Vega 56 and the air-cooled version of the Radeon RX Vega 64. As you can see, the press kit was quite an elaborate affair, similar to what AMD sent for the Ryzen Threadripper launch, and there were still plenty of goodies inside including a plexiglass cube with a “floating” 3D Vega logo inside. There’s also a rather cool, non-working Vega MCM included, along with a few Radeon RX Vega stickers, that gives you a good view of what 8GB of HBM2 memory looks like bolted up to the rather large Vega GPU die.
The most important items of course were the cards themselves. As you can see, both the Radeon RX Vega 56 and Radeon RX Vega 64 feature a cooler design reminiscent of the preceding Radeon RX 480.
As you see, the cards look nearly identical (the Vega 64 is on the left in the image above, while the Vega 56 is on the right), with the only external giveaway being a difference in PCB color between them. You can also see that both require two 8-pin PCIe power connectors.

For now unfortunately reviewers are still under NDA, there’s not much else that we can tell you about the cards that we haven’t already told you. That means that the performance benchmarks are going to have to wait until next week. We will say, however, that those looking to score a real bargain on AMD’s latest round of video cards might want to keep an eye on the Radeon Red Pack, which features the Radeon RX Vega 56 for an MSRP of $499. For that price, you’ll be able to score a $200 discount on a 34-inch Samsung CF791 curved ultra-wide FreeSync monitor and a $100 discount on a Ryzen processor/X370 motherboard combination. The $300 in discounts will go a long way towards building a new, kickass rig to satisfy your 4K gaming urges.
