Limited Edition AMD RX Vega GPU Unboxed For The First Time By Linus
The Limited Edition AMD RX Vega GPU features a brushed aluminum finish and is only available in limited quantities. The GPU has been designed by people from all over the world and the shroud is metallic instead of Black as seen with the AMD RX Vega 64 GPU. It is expected to be more expensive than the reference design model.
The pricing and availability have not been revealed yet but the first ever unboxing of the Limited Edition AMD RX Vega GPU has been done by Linus from Linus Tech Tips. The Vega architecture has been built from scratch and this is AMDs return to the high-end GPU market. It will be interesting to see how well the AMD Vega GPUs will be able to take on the high-end Nvidia GPUs.
The Limited Edition AMD RX Vega GPU features 8 GB of HBM2 memory which is expensive to produce and that is one of the reasons why this GPU is expensive. Linus also showed an Alienware Area 51 desktop PC that was housing a 16 cores 32 thread AMD Threadripper CPU as well as an RX Vega GPU.
Linus showed how well the combination was able to run Doom at 4K using the Threadripper and AMD Vega combo. A Cinebench benchmark was also run on the system and the score was 2866 points and the test was completed in a matter of a few seconds, which was very impressive.
Linus also mentioned that some people from the audience will be able to play Doom using the Alienware Area 51 PC and one lucky winner would get an AMD RX Vega GPU as well.
