The Radeon RX Vega 64 Has A Backplate If You Were Wondering

The Radeon RX Vega 64 was just revealed and there have been many people wondering whether or not the Radeon RX Vega 64 has a backplate. If you were asking that question then the answer is yes. The Radeon RX Vega 64 has a backplate. Even the cheapest $499 variant has one.

There is no fancy logo on the backplate but here are GPUTach tags and LED dip switches. The GPUTach tags show you how much load is on the Radeon RX Vega 64 at any given time without going into any utility tool. Besides looking good the backplate has other functions as well.

The backplate protects the circuits of the graphics card which will come in handy if you have liquid cooling. It also keeps the GPU from sagging by providing support. You can check out the Radeon RX Vega 64 backplate below:

Although the backplate does not make much contact with the GPU, it should help in heat absorption and heat dissipation as well. An interesting thing to note at the reveal was that AMD Vega CrossFire capabilities were not mentioned at the event even though Polaris GPUs were heavily marketed with CrossFire in mind.

AMD also talked about the exclusive rapid math feature and there are some games that will use this feature. These games include Wolfenstein 2 and Far Cry 5.  The RX Vega 64 features 4096 stream processors and bundle pricing start at $499. You can check out the details of the bundles here.

AMD has kept us waiting for a long long time but now Vega is finally here. We still have to see in-game performance before we can reach a verdict but the pricing is great and this might help AMD come at par with Nvidia.

Let us know what you think about Radeon RX Vega 64 and whether or not you are interested in buying one of these GPUs.
