AMD updates Radeon Pro drivers for Vega GPUs with 8K display support

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

AMD recently started accepting orders for the air-cooled and liquid-cooled Vega Frontier Edition workstation graphics cards, and it's preparing a new version of Radeon Pro Software to go along with them.

But where AMD really hopes to gain ground on Nvidia is in pricing. Delivering up to 12.3 TFLOPS of peak single precision compute performance, the Radeon Pro WX 9100 graphics card represents a new era of professional graphics capabilities fueled by powerful Next-Gen Compute Units with Rapid Packed Math and an Enhanced Geometry Pipeline which improves processing efficiencies.

All the three RX Vega 64 and 56 GPUs are slated to hit streets by August itself. For those wanting a standard Vega card, it's a tempting deal as it's only $100 more, but it'll set you back $699 if you fancy a the Vega 64 Liquid Cooled card.

Going head-to-head with Nvidia's GTX 1080 may sound ambitious, but the Vega seems well-equipped to do so.

AMD has finally unveiled its Radeon RX Vega GPUs today.

All versions of RX Vega are launching on August 14. Those claims - for its $499 midrange RX Vega 64, the tailing integer signifying its number of compute units - emphasize minimum frame rates, a conservative but in some ways more insightful metric that, if accurate, illustrates Vega's focus on frame rate fluidity while providing a practical sense of where the bottom lies.

The AMD RX Vega is a new graphics card build on AMD's "Vega" architecture, which AMD says marks the company's biggest leap in power in years.

AMD Has NOT provoded enough detailed explanition of its HBCC/HBC IP and how that relates to any HBM2 caching of larger that available HBM2/Video memory size of teture and mesh/other data as it relates to the Vega GPU Micro-arch.

In short: the base Vega 64 competes with the GTX 1080 and costs $500 United States dollars.

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. The AMD Radeon RX Vega 64 will come in a variety of versions, from air cooled to liquid cooled. Where the Radeon RX Vega 64 will be available for a price tag of $499, the Radeon RX Vega 56 will be priced at $399.

AMD has also announced 'Radeon Packs' which will include discounts for hardware that can match the GPU in addition to the bundled games.

AMD has officially launched the much-anticipated Radeon RX Vega consumer graphics line-up.
