AMD Vega Frontier Edition Pictured In All Its Glory, Dual 8-pin Connectors Confirmed
AMD Vega Frontier Edition is the upcoming GPU based on the Vega architecture that has been announced by AMD. This is for the professional market and although the pricing has been leaked, the GPUs are yet to come out. We have not seen the GPU up close and personal until now. Here we have a close image of the AMD Vega Frontier Edition.

This might seem like a lot of money as compared to the gaming market but keep in mind that these are professional GPUs.
The Vega architecture is expected to disrupt the GPU market. Nvidia has had complete market domination when it comes to the high-end GPU market. AMD Vega is anticipated to give Nvidia a run for its money. We will see how well the AMD GPUs compete with the GTX 1080 and the 1080 Ti.

AMD has confirmed that the Vega architecture will be competitive with Nvidia GTX 1080 Ti as well as the Titan XP. This competition might be in the pricing department rather than performance.
