AMD’s had the world’s eye at COMPUTEX 2017 for its two impending launches - the 16 core / 32 thread ThreadRipper CPUs and Radeon RX Vega graphics cards. Unfortunately, both of these product lines weren’t launched at COMPUTEX 2017. The ThreadRipper CPUs will reportedly launch ‘later this summer’ and Radeon RX Vega will be unveiled at SIGGRAPH 2017 which will be held on 30th July. 

AMD Radeon RX Vega SKUs and Pricing

The only thing we saw at the AMD COMPUTEX 2017 press conference were demo sessions for the two systems. Two Radeon RX Vega graphics cards in a multi-GPU configuration along with a Ryzen ThreadRipper were shown to play Bethesda’s AAA title Prey at 4K resolution with ease. But the actual graphics card wasn’t showcased. We didn’t see Raja Koduri on the stage either. 

As far as rumours go, AMD will have three SKUs for Radeon RX VEGA - Radeon RX Vega Nova, Radeon RX Vega Eclipse and Radeon RX Vega Core. Radeon RX Vega Nova is supposedly the flagship SKU which might carry a $599 price tag and the Radeon RX Vega Eclipse will come in at $499 to compete with the NVIDIA GTX 1080. And lastly, there will be the Radeon RX Vega Core that’ll be priced at $399 going head to head with the NVIDIA GTX 1070.

Every Radeon RX Vega is expected to have HBM2 memory and will be using 14nm FinFET transistors. The highest TDP for the Vega lineup seems to be 275W as of now but we’ll know more towards the launch date.
